well, I've seen all the History Channel stuff...Mayan calendar stuff...bottom line: the end of the world happens on DEC 21, 2012...So, I'd rather just get in now...If I wait until Q3/2012, I'll not have much time left !!
Investment styles....if you always wait until the sun shines, to invest, you'll not make squat...If you see a recovery down the line, get in now - and don't wait for it, or you'll never make any money / MISS THE BOAT...IMO
This is perhaps the best and safest (risk-adjusted) place for those wanting to hedge against the massive reflation and future inflation problem.
Everyone wants gold and oil investments, but few realize this gem, that will pay a good 5%-6% dividend annually at the current $30 quote for years to come, while you wait for asset inflation (rising real estate prices) to kick-in with strong, leveraged capital gains, year in and year out the next 3-5 years.
I love the diversified holdings and out-of-favor, nature of this investment idea. I am holding it in an IRA so I don't have to worry about the impact of distributions and captial gains taken by the fund on my yearly tax return.
