  • Some good news in the trade imbalance: the hefty gain in imports points to a pickup in business and consumer spending that indicates the economy in Q2 was the healthiest in four years, according to Morgan Stanley economists. “With much of the upside surprise in imports in a surge in capital goods, the outlook for domestic investment looks even stronger."  [View news story]
    Correct. If imports were down, consumers and businesses would be buying less.

    Lower tax rate (10%?) on dividends from holdings longer than one year? Mmmmm... now that I think about it, maybe it would help the buy and holds, or encourage buy and hold, but too many evil forces out there working against us individuals.

    I wish I was your twenty-year old son and learned from you. Alas, my dad thought CD's were risky. I had stops on all my dividend stocks and then the flash crash hit. Really messed up my portfolio. Can't protect yourself from the big boys.
