We're all getting excited now, aren't we? Who's smart enough to tell us where we peak next week? Never mind the long term, the Dow will hit new lows by late June. Any takers? Remember, I own a ton of this stuff.
A lot of economic indicators are slowing their downward trend, if not reversing. Financial institutions are lowering divs to conserve cash and rejecting further govt money, and some companies with ZERO problems are selling below book values and with PE's in the single digits.
I agree with the last guy - you are one of those that will ALWAYS see the glass as half empty and will not truly be happy unless the rest of the world is miserable. Lemme guess, a die hard liberal through and through, right?
Seems a sad way to go through life when there are opportunities of a lifetime for those that have cash to buy shares at these levels.
