The Federal Government has done a stellar job of screwing things up. I have all kinds of cash on the sidelines now generating virtually no income. At my advanced age, I would have hoped for better. Excuse the sarcasm, but I wish to express special thanks to President Obama and the other dysfunctional incompetents occupying our nation's Capitol.
better to be in cash without generating income at this time. I am in same position as you as far as advanced age. But I am delighted to have gotten out of REIT's a month ago and look forward to another time in 2013 when they are once again attractive.....maybe!
