the whole market was looking bad today. look at the opening paragraph to this <a href="http://www.reuters.com/article/marketsNews/idCAN0433330220080104?rpc=44">reuters article</a>:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>U.S. stocks tumbled on Friday, dragging the Dow to its worst three-day start to a year since the Great Depression, as a sharp rise in the unemployment rate heightened fears the economy is heading into a recession.<p><hr></blockquote><p>doom and gloom. if we hit a recession, i'd wouldn't be thinking buy anything . . . except maybe inflation-linked bonds, which i might do tomorrow anyway. <br><br>
I thought of getting out after a $5 loss but I didn't ...<br><br>damm, wished I HAD !!<br><br>if the whole economy tanks (very possible) and we enter a "R" ... it could be 2001 all over again !! ... stay in too long and you become the Titanic !!<br><br>David (OFI)
I bought 7 more shares at $183.75 ....I'm going to experiment with those shares this MacWorld. Usually the stock goes up and up until the keynote ..then it drops immediately after Steve gives us all the wonderful news (why, I'll never know)<br><br>I'm planning on selling just short of the keynote and then buying again after the drop. Unless, of course, the stock is barely higher than what I bought it at. In that case I guess I will just hold onto it.<br><br>zweisoft<br>
