    Dividends?????

    The value of a stock is the present value of discounted future dividends, to infinity. Near term earnings have a little more weight, but that weight has to reflect market conditions.

    Investors who see the current economy as an aberration will come to a much different conclusion than day traders and other short view traders.

    When considered on a broad range of history market timers lag buy and hold by roughly a percentage point on average.
