You've probably notice how Goog drops every July and August, and sometimes through September, then rises in the last quarter.
So....given that, typically, 4 out of 5 stocks go down in an overall market downtrend, and that, typically, 3 out of 4 rise in an overall market uptrend, what are your predictions for Goog's performance in the last quarter of 2008?
You make a good point, that most stocks, 75% per Bill O'Neill, of IBD, and author of "how to make money in stocks", move with the market. So, when market is in sell mode like now, must be very careful holding stocks long. I've been following a great market timer for a few years now, who just started a free blog, probably worth reading for ya http://alphakingstocks.blogspot.com/
