    Watch Carefully Now!

    Yesterday, we saw a 3+ point up move from the
    lows of the day ... and on no news. What could this
    be? Well, I'll go out on a limb and suggest that we
    may be bottoming out (not just Staples, but the whole
    market as well). I suggest that what we saw yesterday
    was big money funds moving back into the market. (If
    you managed millions of other peoples' dollars, what
    type of stock would you want to move the money to

    The big money has been pulled out of the market in
    recent weeks as we stumble through global uncertainty.

    Staples and other big name growth stocks are experiencing
    big runups while smaller/more risky stocks are still
    floundering, then it may be time to mortgage the

    I may be a little premature and yesterday may have
    been only a glitch. But when the turnaround happens,

    and good luck!

    Happy Investing!

      Staples and The Home Depot are two of my favorite stocks-
      even lately.

      I agree 100% that we may be
