Lad. FWIW, I read more financial posts than alien ones, although I'll note that one of the big contributors to SETI is the Gordon Moore Foundation

I appreciate you raising all of the issue you've raised over this year. It is forced me to dig deeper if only to prove you wrong .

I've been less aggressive about buying financial stocks, because I've realized after reading your and others post that it is possible (but not probable) that "this time
maybe different". So I have recently resisted the temptation to buy with both fist the 30-40% sale on stocks we have been having. I think there are benefits to diversification, but I don't think it is useful to worry about financial Armageddon.

If the SP drops to 400-500 as RockON says MAY happen, having 10% of my assets in oil or gold just isn't going to help out enough even if they double or triple in price. Or worse yet if we see deflation as you've discussed, nothing is going to help.


My portfolio has been battered, and it is hard to get used to watching 100+ year old banks like Wells Fargo, or Bank of America move up and down 10-30% in a day. Still I focus on dividends and interest. This year I've have had 21 companies increases dividend vs one (soon to be 2) which cut. So despite lower interest rates my income increased this year even while my net worth decreased.


Yes, I am by nature fairly optimistic. Perhaps because I study history a lot, I try to maintain an historical context, so while the world looks more scary now than in the mid 1990s, compared to virtually any other period in the last 100 years, it looks pretty good. We are not looking at double digit unemployment rates, inflation rates, widespread deflation. hundreds of banks aren't failing, the rest of the world is enjoying higher living standard.

Modern country ruled by madman aren't trying to take over the world, Communism is almost dead, we aren't being threatened by 10,000 nuclear warheads, AIDs isn't going wipe out the human race, race rights aren't burning our cities, our political leaders aren't been routinely targeted for assassination. We even have two much better than average guys running for President.

I like it better when one of them is a huge doofus. Makes it a lot easier to pick.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks we could do worse than the two candidates we have this time around. I'm pretty positive about this election.

Thanks, clifp.. I'll tell you where you can send the check. Stay strong. I feel they will continue to plummet. I have not sold mine (BAC and C) because I have had them for forever -forever being: so long that I would still have to pay taxes on a gain even today- plus they are on Paulson's "golden" list of "stocks ye shall not naked short".

I'm keeping them as a perverse experiment, as I am most of my stocks.

True that if worse comes to worst, we will all be in bad shape. but we living off investments will be markedly worse off than others. Those that wlll do best are those who have a job they can keep, and those with mostly tangible assets. I'm pretty insecure on both those counts.

Should it go the other way, does he also get to send you the bill?

Clif...I get my usual 10% if it all works out...

BAC, C, JPM - still leftover from the DRIP file cabinet. Not buying more yet.

BUT - Sara Lee Cherry and Edward's Coconut Creme - neither on yesterday's shopping list.

This forum sneaks into the old subconscious.



heh heh heh - pie and maybe falling knives!
