Re: Emerson Electric

The companies with a long history of dividend increases have a bias to keeping the string going. Even if a token increase, when conditions recover, they will pick up the pace. EMR is a solid company

Re: Watch out for Exchange Traded Products

I may be naïve, but I would hope this would not apply to the companies specializing, such as ishares, Fidelity, Powershares, Barclays. Also, check their holdings.

Re: bottom indicator

Don't use the cutoff from one set of history and use that with a different kind of current data source.

Data source is important. Yahoo is reporting 17.2 for SPY

Re: Oil Prices and the stock market

The Saudi's & maybe others are selling from their sovereign funds to support budget deficits brought on by low oil prices.

In part, may be a matter of supply & demand for stocks

Re: Best Timing Method

If you were "forced" to pick one timing method, considering whips, drawdown, return, etc., what would it be?

Re: Opinions, please?

Fortunately, I do not need the money. DW and I are both in our 70's, retired and we do not need our investment funds to live on. The only thing we withdraw money for is major home repairs or an occasional get-away trip.

Re: Sold KMB
