I think it is going to be a while before things get better, and if things with Iran get out of control, the price of oil, and the market, can get worse quickly...I am shifting some of my MF to cash for the next few months....

What do you guys think of the alternative energy stocks? I have done well with FSLR....and what about this Pickens Plan that he has been pushing all over TV?

I asked about alternative energy stocks...his plan may or may not have an effect on that(whether legitimately or by affecting speculators).

most of this sector's stocks (jaso fslr eslr) don't look higher here in the near term. Don't meet my long screen.

Longer long term, its a pure guess anyway so we might as well as the dog. of course i purely use TA...i'll leave FA to the "smart money" crowd. ;-)

Since i'm a huge fan of Ethanol, i decided to look into the ethanol producers in the US and they've been given an absolute pounding due to the recent floodings in the mid-west. So, i decided to do some bottom fishing on AVR and VSE recently and looks like a bottom might be found as both have been having pretty big intraday upswings recently...
:coolnana:

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- UBS on Friday upgraded the beaten-down ethanol sector to a buy, saying margins are improving in the business of turning corn into ethanol for cars.

I had my 401k primarily in equities, but I took a major hit the first two quaters of '08- I got cold feet and moved most of my retirement fund into guaranteed interest, just until things stabilize a bit-

Hey look, I understand the whole buying stock while it's cheap bit, but I was beginning to woory about not having anything left to invest- :shrug:

I've been to Vegas twice (on business), and I've never gambled a dime- I'm just that type of person-
