Listening to Walter B. on Ike. I disagree with his long term thoughts 110%. We already did a sideways move for 16 years. (1966-1982). Alternation won't allow for that.
NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.
And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.

Time to decide whether to hold REITs

NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- Richard Band, the cautious veteran editor of Profitable Investing, has just cut back on REITs. What next?
Band's warning came Thursday in a special email bulletin to subscribers. He wrote:
"We've had a spectacular run with our real estate investment trusts. From the bottom in late 1999, the average REIT has racked up a 154% total return (including reinvested dividends). And this happened during the worst bear market for stocks in 60 years!
"Alas, most REITs are now severely overvalued. REIT dividend yields have dropped to an all-time low, below 5% for the typical equity REIT. (Data go back to 1972.) What's more, my technical studies lead me to believe that a major price top is coming soon in the REIT sector.

jstrack... never underestimate the courage, imagination, and bravado of a shitzu.
When I lived in Detroit, a tiny black shitzu lived two houses down. Each day he came
out his front door wearing a bright red ribbon, and headed up to my house.
Down the sidewalk, down my driveway, he'd then slip through the small gap in
the gate to enter my back yard. Ah... he thought, here is heaven.
Well, "heaven," was my 260 lb female St. Bernard in that back yard.
God only knows what was in that little guy's mind, but she would gently nuzzle
him away, yet he persisted. He totally ignored the danger that this huge lady
posed to his own modest little body.
Day after day after day, he returned! Now that is truly one heavy duty goal-seeking little critter.
He was absolutely a delightful little doggie, friendly, bold, and determined.
He just wasn't scared of anything!
Then, he didn't show up anymore. I went to the neighbor to find out why.
Someone had stolen her dog.
Perhaps there is a lesson here.
