Looking back at my April 2008 post is mostly down the drain in this whip saw market. Vfijx is a good bond fund in this down market,and is making some capital gains along with a 5% dividend. Good sectors to be in now are Utilitys with a high yield ,like Q,FTR,WIN,and Oils will be back in the next 6-12 months,so get in near the bottom while you can.
What a great day to have bought a couple of weeks ago,when most technical indicators indicate a buy on PKD. This low flying driller was at $5.50 and now is$7.63 equals a 38% increase. This holds true for other stocks,when all the hedge funds don't hold them down,there is always a profit in the near term for value.
