Good call Jughead....but is another 4% worth risking a 10-30% decline ?

I address this in my PORTFOLIOCHANNEL.COM newsletter today, talking about profit margins.

If anybody wants my FREE F&F newsletter, BTW, just PM me.

Trouble is - all conservatives on forum liquidated their stock holdings and converted their assets to precious metals!

Market timers........ I never know I should laugh or shake my head as I consider 'em and the foolishness of their ways.

Market highs as we reach 'em are WONDERFUL times to raise the cash you may need at the time.......but if anyone is suggesting I either "load up" or "sell entirely" here.......again........not sure if I want to laugh or scold you.

The only thing more pathetic are those who refuse to participate at all.

Worse than the market timers?......just seeing how so VERY MANY of you.....some here in this thread......haven't been able to get past your FEAR and find any place these past 6 years to invest with confidence.......it's pretty clear you just don't know what your doing anyway and I wonder why you post in threads like this.

The environment is NEVER perfect and NEVER without risk.......if you're waiting for the "all clear!" signal........it isn't coming.

It never has and never will.

Far better to simply acknowledge the idea that the equity markets are TOO HARD and you don't get it anyway.

This isn't rocket science but it's clearly beyond the nay-sayers of the past 6 years.

Oil is just breaking out. CVX hitting all time highs today.

You hit it out of the park with your call on APC.

It's going a lot higher than 2,000. I've been long the Q's for a long time.

Unfortunately it's all Smoke & Mirrors.

Economy is horrendous both in the US and Europe.

As long as the Fed keeps printing money and interest rates stay low the Stock Market (especially the NASDAQ) will be on a tear.

http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=Q...l=QQQ;range=my

This market could easily see another 25% rise before all hell breaks loose. Keep a mental STOP of where you want OUT.

Either a physical stop or a mental stop (drops 10%) have a STOP and don't MOVE it NO matter what happens or what the media says

No, any thinking conservative cut back on stocks but didn't entirely exit the market. And you would NEVER go into an asset class that yields 0%.


Proper asset allocation and MPT says never go below 20% allocation to stocks, even if you are very bearish.

Thanks, I did...unfortunately, I sold part of my position and lost out on alot of the upside.

Recouped some with DVN and HES. But still a tough last 15 months or so. Have to be honest, worst time forecasting the market in my life.

Not sure if my job situation is exacerbating my bearish thoughts or what.....

I get worried when everyone starts talking about 'there's no end in sight'. That's what we hear every time a market makes a big correction.
