In the years climbing out of the great recession, regular investors were leary of buying stock, thrice burned, enduringly shy. But in the last six months, as the S&P 500 index has gone up 13 percent, individuals are back to buying.

Allan Sloan, senior editor at large at Fortune magazine, joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio to discuss why he plans to break away from the masses when it comes to investing.
