Who could have imagined it, but Peter Lynch is out and (fixed income manager) Ford O'Neil in at Fidelity, where investor cash parked in bond and money market funds now exceeds that invested in equities. "Own equities, forget the bond guys, that's for suckers," says a Fidelity research director, describing the attitude in 1999 that is clearly not so anymore.

    The hardest thing to do now is to own bonds and hold cash and avoid most equity, and to be selective. The party ended in 2008, but opportunities will arise. It will take time. Look at (BOND).


    Market isn't really buying QEx but QEx will eventually set-in. Just buy stocks at a discount to intrinsic value and wait.

    I suggest everyone thinking of buying stocks, and especially indexed investments, to look at a 20yr or longer graph of the S&P500. This index has only approach the 15,000 mark twice before - and twice before it was followed by a significant correction. It's a tough market for investors (i.e. people interested in investing in companies longterm) but a good time for speculators and profiteers. Especially with the volatility we've seen these last 4 years or so.
