    My post's have been limited lately due to my Lone Peak Asset Management obligations so I want to clarify my latest stance as readers have been emailing me regarding my takes. Here it is:

    1. As an economic timing investor, this is the stage when I want to be fully invested. This will continue as long as the economic data is showing improvement in its rate of change.

    2. I loved the banks off of the bottom. I don't love them as much anymore. I am out of individual names and hold a small position in the XLF. Any company that has Obama's money scares me. m2m didn't eliminate dilution because of the regulators new focus on tangible common equity. I don't like dilution.

    3. I am taking my bank cash and averaging into technology. I love this sector going forward with stimulus on the way. I especially love Apple with the Media Tablet coming. I think this product is a major game changer, even more so than the iPhone.

    4. I am not a day or a week trader. I consider myself a mid term investor. To me, buy and hold is dead, and economic timing is the way to go.

    5. The name Swine Flu scares me more than the actual virus. I am watching this very carefully. I know we've cried wolf in the past but one of these times the wolf will attack. Today I'm not worried but my eyes are open 

    For those who are interested in investing with us at Lone Peak, feel free to send an email of inquiry as we will be looking to add a few clients in the second half of '09.  To contact me, click on the link at web.me.com/jzapple/Eco...
