  • Sucker's Rally? [View article]
    I agree that retail investors can not challege the rally. When market is heading higher it is better to go long or watch from sideline. Clearly fundamentals are not supporting this huge runup. It does not matter where the indicies is .... may it be at 11,500 or 10,000. When funamentals support, investors should be less worried about investing in quality stocks.

    Good article. "Selling is the most underrated tool for the individual investor". This is very true. Better to be on sidline than selling.

    Better than expected. Unemployment is still at higher level. Still the better than expected numbers should bring some relief to market on Monday.

  • GM's purchase of AmeriCredit (ACF +21.7%) puts it closer to being "back in the game," says Gamco Investors CEO Mario Gabelli. Yes, writes Felix Salmon, but why? The government spent an incredible $17.2B that it will never see again bailing out GMAC, so is it a good idea for GM to use its taxpayer largesse to get back into subprime lending?  [View news story]
    Sad to see market going up despite bad economy.
