CNBC aired an interview this AM with a principle of the Barnard Retail Report. Ted David asked Mr. Barnard if he could recommend a few retail stocks out of the dozens of companies that his report follows....his recommendations were, Walmart and Sears. If he's right it's good news for the longs and discomforting for the shorts!...time will tell.
I saw the same CNBC report, (he also mentioned K-Mart. Very upbeat for those who are long termers. As far as the discussion, on ASOP, please, put all you can in it. The company I worked for offered one, and now at an early age, I can sit here all day and play the market. Don't let anyone ever talk you out of an ESOP, ASOP or 401K offering.
