Hmm, you got love these supposedly stock wizards he quotes in his article.  Of course these money managers want you to believe their picks will rise  through the roof. They also want you to plop your money into their funds, so they can get rich of your fees. Half of these articles are a subliminal advertising for these guys funds.  I do own GE, and have looked at some of these stocks from time to time. IMHO most of these stocks are bloated. I think he said in one stock, "only 37% PE" ...give me a break. I am not going to buy a stock with a 37% PE, when the averages are 17%...that's bloated, and a sure fire way to lose money.

 For Bank of supposedly America, and JP, I actually hope they fold someday. Those crooks steered our country into the financial mess to begin with, and  are still allowed to operate in this country?  The SEC slapped them on the wrist, and their CEO's took their golden parachutes, as well as millions. The weak SEC didn't do a dam* thing to them.  This market is for the most part bloated, so tread in lightly on stocks and companies you know well.  It's all a big gamble, you just have to know how to play the game, and walk away with more than you put in.  I am in the market, but watch it like a hawk, and I am not in love with any of my stocks. When I sense a crash is on the way,  I won't stick it out like the last crisis, I will cash out, and sit idly by.  I suggest you do the same, and not get hyped by all these "wizards" on MSN.

Before anyone else invests in GM, maybe they should pay back the taxpayers of the USA to the tune of 10B dollars.

 Yes indeed a market collecting welfare is a sure thing. Makes perfect sense after all America is doing so well we have the lowest labor participation rate since 1978. Massive debt and looming unfunded obligations of 100 trillion. Yes indeed times are good in la la land.

We were able to finish up yesterday, not 174 but we take the 129....This morning is a different story, as you may imagine manipulators came out swinging; at 1050 hrs they called to accelerate the selling so down we go....Long way to go....Be cautious, they will try to bring us down big before tomorrow's Fed notes....And again, remember, its not what the Fed says, its how these crooks interpret what he says....Hang in there...More later.

"Don't give up on this bull market yet — it still has room to run, thanks to stronger economic and corporate underpinnings."


Translation: OUR economy is a total wreck, but if you are an entity (and according to John Roberts- Supreme Court Chief Kool Aid Addict- corporations are people too)... the skies are sunny made funny by Ben Bernanke's $85 BILLION a month Quantitative Easing that We the People are on the hook for but never saw a dime of trickle down... then 2014 is going to be a GREAT YEAR. For us people... not on your destitute life.

Scumbags got their way but basically a flat day....We knew they were not going to let any index end up in the green today...That was a no brainer. Tomorrow, nothing will happen, well, these cheating crooks will do their best to drop these markets big, other than that, business as usual.

The article came from Kiplinger magazine November 2013 issue.
I invested roughly $1000 in each stock on 11/29/2013 with intention of holding through end of 2014 to see how well they do or don't do.
Already up on most of them, with CREE ( +15%), HMIN ( +9%), CRM ( +10%)and MONIF ( +9%) being the best performers as of today 01/08/2014.

A bonus for you in 2014 from me, watch CSCO and UA. 
If you want a good ETF for the year, try IVOG.

Curious Why would anyone wish to invest in JP morgan when all you would be doing is paying off their 2 Billion dept.

 

And Has Bank of America paid back the tax payers yet for bailing them out!

 

And Why would I invest in Banks when they refuse to pay saving interest and the majority of any profit simply goes to the BANKERS!

I am so fed up with the constant media bombarding us with stock market reports, financial news, financial experts spewing forth their "opinions" etc. It seems we have become a nation that is obsessed with Wall St and you can hardly watch a TV show without a ticker tape running beneath it.  Wall St is a manipulated financial machine that serves the super rich and not the average American citizen. Personally, Wall St is long overdue for a major overhaul on how stocks are traded and the regulations that are supposedly there to protect investors.

Under Bush - Seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose from 4.3% in January 2001, peaking at 6.3% in June 2003 and reaching a trough of 4.4% in March 2007. After an economic slowdown, the rate rose again to 6.1% in August 2008 .  Clearly all those years of 4% and 5% unemployment where much higher than Obama's 10% 12% and current 10% (counting those not looking for work).  Got it.

Yes by all means invest your money in the stock market at all time highs based on government easy money. The fed can't keep this up forever and when it ends people will know what ugly looks like. I'll take my short term 2.78% and sit on it, Thanks anyway.

If you buy GM stock at $37 and it goes to 86 that's a 230 percent increase, Whoopie...!!!
Who the hell makes this stuff up, anyway?
