The savviest move is still to buy low and sell high. Most of what's recommended here are at their yearly or all-time highs. Only fools rush in after others have made their money. Even the conservative investments suggested here are priced too high. To see what you could really lose on any investment, check out the chart for the investment and look for its all-time low - that's what you could potentially lose in another meltdown. I always look at what the investment sold for in March of '09 to get an idea of potential loss.

When the shoe drops on the other foot all of these market salesmen will be on a plane to Bora Bora laughing their a$$ off.

"But, Stack says, economies and bull markets rarely die of old age alone"


Sooner or later they have to unplug the 85 billions/monthly (QE) machine that keep the dying body alive.  I will cost too much to keep it alive.

WTF. Bull market my ****. This is nothing but a unified effort by "bend over Ben" to enrich the rich. Corporations are NOT hiring you old coot. They're borrowing from you at 0% and using these free monies to buy back stock and increase dividends. To aid the wealthy. No fool like an old fool.

There is really only ONE savvy market move right now... CASH OUT and go help your community to survive the biggest crash in Human History. There isn't ONE single stock in existence that isn't full of fake Bernanke money and not ONE that can actually work like a business not like a business platform. The G8 isn't meeting to discuss chocolate chip cookie recipes... they know they get crushed if they don't come home bearing solutions and the heads of Central Bankers on platters.

the part that bothers me is we have 4 trillion into the stock market . no jobs  food and gas up   and wages down  more taxes. can old BEN stop it. the min interest rates go up bam everything will double  and the  market will fall. who will have any money to buy anything besides the rich.  you know they will dump there  stocks with insider trading . the  poor  man with a 401k will get it in the  a$$   old ben won't be able to buy anything  he is using the new tax money know to keep things going. good thing some us still know how to barter system works

The big boys still have an edge with their buying of reports and getting info a few seconds before the market does.. then their math programs kick in and they make big bucks in a few seconds while the poor smucks move into the market unaware of what has happened. HF traders, buying of info ahead of the public release, slow witted SEC personel who could not find a bus parked  the wrong way on a one way street unless someone gives them a nod, congressmen permitted to trade stocks they regulate(yup, the law did not change on it although they want you to think it did), and those in congress failing to anything about it. All the talking heads ignore this and keep telling you how profitable the market is for you. You have been warned...

QUOTE:  " with interest rates low and virtually guaranteed by the Federal Reserve to remain so through year-end and into 2014, stocks face little competition from bonds or savings accounts. "From here to the end of the year, the market will go up enough that stocks are the right place to be versus alternatives,"


Can't argue with that... Only fools would try to go against that tide.

Real estate investment, and making those houses available, at a cost that people can afford again, not onlly helps the economy but it also helps the area, neighborhoods, citties and states.

I'm pretty much in line with the advice in the article, though my investment in the improving real estate market is a REIT.
