Hold your dividend stocks and ones you think are ready to split or have other future potential.  
Get rid of any high PE mult. and any risky shares.  And wait for the correction to come running back in for a nice bounce.

Only caution is April to July China may have some credit defaults.  I don't know how that plays out in the US.
Good luck!  And remember to invest requires reinvesting dividends, but do it on serious down days and not on down days that in a midst of a correction over due.

I am ready for the market to come crashing down. It already did and I wasn't ready for that though.

The whole market is overvalued and due for a correction.

Top that with overseas uncertainty (political and economic).  Throw in the worst drought in California history.  Have you noticed what beef prices have climbed to?  Stagflation is imminent. Consumer confidence is starting to drop from it's not so lofty perch.

The US economy is like the bamboo scaffolding on a hastily constructed Malay sky rise.  Smart money bailed out a while ago.  Don't be drinking your Champaign in the unfinished penthouse when this sucker comes crashing down.

If I was Bill Gates, I hope I would decide to employ a couple of thousand analysts to augment the StockScouter and help to educate the public. The algorithms employed are a time saver, but they let things slip through which no reasonably careful person with a year's stock hunting experience would really consider. To have analysts reading the "Notes to Financial Statements" in EDGAR would be a welcome addition to the StockScouter service and be educational as well. Educating the public would be a main concern of mine I would hope. So far my experience with the service has been somewhere in the average range.

The phony Obama economy is about to come crashing down......


We have a 40% unemployment rate (see Labor Force Participation Rate) and nobody has any disposable income left after paying for ObowelMovement Care.....

I'm not really afraid of the market going down.  It is actually a good thing as it was over priced, way too much QE from the Feds.  The market goes up and down.  I'm can't control it, I'm considered  a small fry, so I trade accordingly. I bought a few short term ETFs positions in Dec which trades opposite the trend of the market, sold options in those and got called out in late Jan  made a few bucks but not a whole lot.   In  Dec and Jan. got called out in from nearly all of my stock positions I purchased in late Aug and early Oct.   I'm slowly buying positions in the current down trend,  No tech just the staples.  Gotta watch the falling knife. We shall see what Feb. will bring.

Several of these were on the "do not buy list" only a few short weeks ago. MSN Money, what a joke.

No one knows what's going to happen for sure, but the fact is that the Fed has thrown trillions of dollars at the markets for one reason, and one reason only, and that was to keep stock prices going up so that people would feel better about their accounts.   It was, and is, all based on the simple premise that if people think their investments are doing well, then they will think the economy is doing well, or, at the very least, believe that it is starting to turn in the right direction.   The problem, of course, is that you can only maintain that illusion for so long.  There will come a point where the illusion of Wall Street and the reality of Main Street becomes so disconnected that the illusion becomes apparent for what it is.  That is starting to happen now.


Many people thought that when the markets went up because the Fed finally announced the long anticipated cut back, that it was a sign the markets could stand on their own.  I'll never claim to be a market guru, but unfortunately, the average investor doesn't follow the markets closely enough to recognize trends and signs, which those of us who do follow the markets on a daily basis, have been seeing for quite a while now.  That is not to imply that it takes a rocket scientist to be able to see such things, but that one does have to make a conscious effort to pay attention to what is happening in the markets and educate yourself about what to look for.  Unless you have a keen interest in the markets, I would submit that most people don't do that.


As I said, no one knows what will happen for sure, but history shows that in many cases, things often do not end well when the magician runs out of tricks.

The Fed will keep on with the give away to the banks and wall street! So you can rest knowing that.
Feb 5, 2014 11:04AM
The stock market has already dropped significantly since it's high's a few months ago and there is more corrections coming to it.  On the other hand, the Fed will keep pumping it with no end in sight until the dollar collapses.  So, be careful of what you buy on the stock exchange because at this point going to gamble in Las Vegas would be a safer bet lol

It makes my head hurt when people say the market or a stock is over sold. I doubt that God knows.

The party's over, now comes the long overdue correction, the bargains are what the elite are dumping if you can call them bargains. The Fed Reserve has been running out of options along with faith and credit, they can't keep up and the Piper is calling, it's going to be brutal.
