old: I do have a life and it does not mean being tied to my computer in a dark room. Just the opposite. I check in on my "watch list" about once a week. In the case of HE it is probably twice a week because I expect an interest rate peak about March of 2006 (IMO). Once I buy HE (again) I expect to hold it as long as interest rates are declining. Selling again once the cycle turns up. The ONLY way to play utility stocks (IMO). If you invest for the long term than great. I choose to make more money riding the interest rate cycles. It has worked well for me for many years. HE responds like clockwork to interest rate cycles. I expect it always will.
