This week's screens might provide some interesting buying opportunities.

Caution is advised though. The current administration seems intent on raising cap gains and dividend tax rates across the board.

That vast majority of my investments are in tax exempt accounts of one sort or another, so this does not bother me much. However, I believe the typical investor is going to be seriously consider continuing to sell off their big dividend paying stocks and some cap gains winners.

We might see a general sell off through the end of the year - meaning better bargains may be available in the near future.

If it looks like the fiscal cliff (the sequestration bill, tax break legislation expiration, and imposition of huge new taxes to pay for healthcare), then that general slide might more closely approximate a crash.

In democracies, the people get the government they deserve.
