Man it has been such a roller coaster ride. I like my "thesis" still but looking at the actual short term results, I am about to throw my hands into the air. It really does get tiresome seeing my picks go down and down every darn day. Am I really that off base? Today I was up nice then wammo, April fools, down again.
I figured get the dividend stocks since they are paying more than bank accounts. Yet those stocks keep declining. I figure get the Ag/oil stocks since they actually are showing earnings increases year over year, yet they are declining too. Correction I think, but when they ALL go down doubt just starts to sink in.
I stopped listening to the analysts since they flip flop day to day. The worse is Jim Cramer. I simply can't watch his show any more, despite my owning GE (which owns CNBC).
So is it time to surrender and short the lot? Or stick it out and let the dividends start to add up at least?
