The answer is, managing a portfolio that is all to the GREEN side on days like today.CZZ/DBO/GLD/IEF/PXE/XLE/XLP/XMEOthers would rather spend their lives bashing and researhing penny stocks that they don't even have a position in.
I know what you do with your time. You post on a message board and then log on 16 times and give your post 5 stars.I'm sure this post will get 16 one star ratings.
Then there's always the search for the donated spine, the search for friends and adulation on the internet, excessive masturbation and delusions of grandeur. Yep that makes a full day for stinkfingers.
36 ratings and you're the only poster of the day? Must be a lot of those "silent readers" that are staggered by your success.
Congratulations. I'm in XLE too but thinking of selling. Have you held your ETF's long?
<<Have you held you ETF's long>>No, except for GLD I just got into the others recently. I'd hang onto XLE for awhile. Oil will continue to rise at least through the end of '08.Besides, XLE's top ten holdings are APA/CVX/COP/DVN/XOM/MRO/OXY/SLB/RIG/VLODoesn't get much better than that!I've researched every ETF on the market and I feel that it would be tough to beat the performance of the one's I mentioned.
