  • What's In Store For The Market This Week/

    The short-term Contrarian Index dropped into neutral-ish territory. All the stocksentimental indicators are in neutral territory now. Another article supports the idea that there may be a temporary platform. Likely, next week will be positive and maybe the week after.

  • Cover Half Your Shorts Of PGP.

    The Wardrobe significantly outpaced the benchmark by rising 3% largely due to the tremors caused by the departure of Bill Gross from Pimco funds. This caused Pimco High Income Fund (NYSE:PHK) to fall 9% and Pimco Global Stocks Plus & Income Fund (NYSE:PGP) by 8%. If you want to get your money out, it is a good time. We will likely see a rebound. Cover half of PGP.

  • Funds To Buy If The Markets Start Slipping.

    In their annual report, managers of Boulder Growth and Income Fund (NYSE:BIF) (rated "hold") mention the possibility of a liquidation of the fund. Considering that the fund has a 20% discount to its value (NYSE:NAV), that would give us an instant 20% gain. If you are going to buy stocks at this time, buy BIF or Boulder Total Return Fund (NYSE:BTF), which will combine soon into one fund.
