    I heard a rumour that someone said there's going to be some news. This is only hearsay but it is true.

    What I am referring to here, kids, is the long held rumor of a major corporate tax cut.

    Markets rise based on expectations. The actual even is often a trigger for many to pull the plug.

    Thus...in my experience "Buy the rumor but sell the news" has proven in many cases to be right on the money.
