Now What?
 
Dividend stock go down or up? Growth stocks, which way? US bonds +/-?

yes, no, maybe.

I'll tell you in about six months.

If I could accurately answer such questions I'd already be RE'd rather than just dreaming.

With 100% certainty, dividend stocks did go down or up and will continue to do so. :) Same for growth stocks.

One strategy to make your stocks always go up is to buy individual stocks and have them issued in certificate form. Then, form a pile. You will notice that as you buy more, they (the pile) will always go up. :)

OK...pardon my curt remarks, but I'm not quite sure what your "real" question is.

My real question is: What is the likely response of investors Monday?

They've had the weekend to spin doctor think about it, so I suspect that their reaction will be much less muted than if this announcement had gone out last Wednesday or Thursday night.

Ironically it seems that the Fed has found a way to boost the yield on Treasuries...

I wonder what other "reserve currency" the world will shift to.

Maybe not. I just heard (with half an ear) a CNN report with Ali Velshi asking some expert to explain why Treasury yields had gone down when one might have expected them to go up. Half the answer was that bond investors had no place better to go (a "flight to quality") than US Treasuries. I hope I got that straight.

I think they downgraded the US credit rating.

IMHO, Monday will be ugly. Perhaps stocks with nice balance sheets (dividend paying or otherwise) might not get hurt as bad, but I expect Monday to be ugly.

Just remember that every time somebody wants to sell their stock, there is somebody out there buying it. :)
