Re: Two Ideas

I have held MAT through thick and thin (mostly thin) since 2011.

I agree with Mungo's view that it is very hard to make money in toys. Keep in mind this is a consumer discretionary business.

Bought CAT

EOM... Oh OK, parked the rest of cash in SCHD and more JNJ. I am now 100% in stocks (no bonds) and taking a break from stock-picking to deal with other stuff.
