    Seriously if fundamentals mattered do you think the s@p would have ever seen 1038? we'd still be at 800 or less if they mattered.

    Then, they matter more than ever.

    you know what that means when demand drops around the world ? depression.

  5. CAT and DE are "best of breed" companies. As far as trading goes, the farther down these go the better. buy at a discount...dont be a sucker and pay retail price :)
