    Less politics; more SNH; I 2 Guilty

    "Assuming that fear and greed will continue to drive the markets and there is lots of corporate tap-dancing out there, where should we put our money (REITs, Oil Trusts, Pipelines, Tankers, etc.) to get good dividends without risking principle too much."

    Reply - those are EXACTLY where I have my money. REITS, Oil Trusts, and Tankers. . .just picket up VLCCF (tankers) last week. . .I doubt if we could EVER go wrong with oil. . .oh and also coal = ALRP was my best investment of 2004.

    • Interesting. I've gravitated towards oil
      and REITs, too. We can get burned
      that way, as well -- higher interest
      rates and lower oil prices may hurt. I bought
      some tanker stock. It's the same
      price to ship whether oil prices are high or
      low. But, I'm wary of my oil company
      stocks. Oil prices could sink.

      Suggest THO for your baby
      boomer strategy. RV's will continue
      to sell, and as with the last RV boom,
      oil prices don't seem to affect RV
      sales. Retirements do, and we'll be
      seeing a whole lot of those going forward.

      I still like SNH. This dip is a good
      place for the new buyer to get in. I
      may add some shares today. But, it's not
      foolproof. If interest rates go up,
      SNH could be affected.
