Welcome back!
I'm the creator/former moderator/referee of the Fab 15 board -- but now WAY too busy to be very active on the board again.

So you have my every encouragement to reactivate the board, and let things shake out with a new moderator.

I'm still an active investor that has taken a defensive position against national or global calamity, which means I am heavy into (1) oil stocks, particularly Canadian oil stocks, (2) gold and silver stocks and gold and silver ETFs, (3) commodity ETNs (a cousin of ETFs), and (4) petroleum royalty stream stocks. I have 21 stocks in these areas.

Many of these stocks have a high beta, and yesterday (3/10/11) was a "perfect storm", where oil, gold, commodities, and even silver went down, after all these stocks had been going up for up to two years.

However, I am only holding and neither buying or selling at this time. I have Informal stop-limit alerts set for them generally set for a 30% decline, but on certain stocks, a 35% or 40% decline.

Well, gott to go, that's it for now.

Best wishes,
