this is unsolvable. There are no laws imagined or otherwise that would guarantee that no casualties will be result in the future. Be realistic. It is , what it is. Its the return of the "wild west".....no question.
It depends if you are a trader. I'm sitting in my rocking chair looking at my screen to see when my various dividends 'hit'. Keeps me bz.
morris. I've been telling you people that Cramer 's track record is not very good. Stay away from him and CNBC. Do your own DD.
and how about the non-chartists? We believe that anything is possible. Who thought it would return to 94? Not the chartists, thats for sure.
funds against individual stocks is like comparing apples to oranges. An individual stock like JNJ cannot be beat over the LONG term since just by holding it garners 3.5% with the extreme possibility of capital gains. I bought at 55 a few years ago. Look at it now after in a downturn. An ETF doesn;t perform this way. An ETF has built in expenses ( 1.5 - 2.5 % ) _and you have to average out the gains of the fund usually below the 3.5 % div. of JNJ, plus the capital gain y o y. Holding JNJ is boring , but the ETF is very boring with less of a payout.
