I'm not buying for clients yet.  Betcha a dollar the market pulls back now again today.  THe BKX is failing.  Cant have a rally with out the BKX.  Right now the DOw is up 42 points and the NASDQ is up 8.


Watch it fail now.

CD...buy 3-4X your normal position and then when the breakup happens, buy enough to round all lots.

Sure they have...mutual funds have made many common folks wealthy.  That being said, I'd say a good mutual fund will be as good as or better than the four stocks you've listed.  If you want to get rich with individual stocks, you're doing to have to get further off the beaten path than those four...

I love "don't tell" it made me laugh.  And, I instantly love anyone in this business with a sense of humor.


But, why ACAS?  I took a look.  I mean I like the Financial Sector, but this stock doesn't look like it will move alot any time soon.


Whisper what you know and I promise not to tell.

Be very careful wrabbit.


GM - - -well, until the union contract is negotiated nothing will happen.  They will never go bankrupt.  I will buy when I see a substantial management change.  Beside York, these are the same idiots who got them in the mess they are in.

I don't know nuttin... and you know I don't cause u know where I work... 


But I do like me some Mezzanine company and they are one of the best.  I do wish they would go more int'l though.  If you look at their exits, they plus outweighs the minus more than 2 to 1.  They know how to pickum.  And very little tech.

ACAS has a very consistent dividend, currently yielding over 10%.  Dividend has increased multiple times in the past few years.  American Funds is a very large shareholder of ACAS and has been for a few years.

That's what I'm talking about Willis!!!!!!



Now that guy can sell.

Please tell me,


Why do people keep talking about the same old stocks?


MSFT MRK GE INTC GM DIS


Not trying to be a smart ass, but of all the undervalued stocks


why these? Do clients feel more comfortable with household names?


 better growth and value plays than those don't you think?


(not that I am the best stock picker in the world but why the same old low volatility names??)

Salespeople find it easier to sell stocks that clients recogninze and stocks that a story can be created with.  That's it.


With that said, MSFT has nice relative strength today and last Friday.  It is a possible trade if it breaks through todays high now with resistence at $24.20.

Good grief!  Everything I've seen mentioned here I could get on CNBC from Maria.  Almost everything you guys/gals rec'd are in major downtrends and the other 2 were bustin their 50MA.  What makes you think these positions are gonna change their down trends??  Personally, I rarely buy a company that you hear about on TV or Yahoo.  The only thing I bought last week was BEARX and I don't do loaded MF's cause clients pay me a commish.  Really now, you folks are kidding about these positions, right?  In the last year we've bought a lot of positions you never heard of and some you'll never hear of again!  LOL!  But BABY, PETS,Guess, CWTR, EAGL, AMED and numerous others especially in the energy sector were bot  with worry and trepidation and sold with $ in our eyes.

Well, Microsoft is FLOODED with cash, and their revenues are incredible.  Good management, good products- - -what more could you want.  Yes, and it is easy to sell.

Dogdooki-  Yoo my friend you are LATE on the BEARX fund.  I hope you put it in a wrap account so no up front commission was paid by your clients. 


I cant tell what you are trying to say by your inanely written  post.


But one thing I know for sure.  If you just now are getting into the BEARX, you are not too bright.
