Where to put money in turbulent times...

Apologies if this has been posted before. It was interesting to me. Further apologies to the CNN Money detractors on this board. I still found the article interesting, albeit broad and commonsensical.

My take home message:

"We offer our advice with a big proviso: If you already have a sound, highly diversified portfolio spread across a wide variety of U.S. and foreign large-cap, value, and small-company stocks, you're already positioned to withstand and even profit from market shocks. In that case, we recommend that you do nothing. Simply stay with your plan."

Another take: buy financial sector stocks while they are cheap; increase holding of international stocks.
