    Borrow and Buy?

    I have to agree with you on GE. I don't borrow but I often convert my dividend income to GE, PFE, VZ, T as these are safe havens and yield between 4 and 6%. All of my money is IRA and thuse protected from dividend taxes at the moment.
    Perhaps options would be your better choice if the Dow does actually go that low.
    They are cheaper, your losses are limited and they have great leverage. Just a thought. I believe that BB&T is a safe haven here as well although I sold mine back in the mid twenties and have not reentered. In fact I put the proceeds into GE
