For a longer term aspect (which is rare for me) I think we should start a serious discussion of those sectors (stocks) that we should look into. The us economy has just been drastically changed, and the federal government is guaranteed to spend hundreds of billions in an effort to combat terrorism. Lets try and work together to figure out which sectors will experience a significant insurge of business in the next year or so. --------------------------------- Because of the significant opportunity costs involved in longer term investing... Unless I can make at least a few hundred percent like 4 months out, I'm not gonna bother, even though there are tons of great ideas that will do 50% in 6 months or so, I'd rather not tie up the capital like that cause I can make more actively trading. Therefore, lets look at names that trade under like 10 or so (50 dollar stocks rarely quadruple, especially in today's markets)... Don't rule out the use of longer term options however.
