I've been buying BDV, BDT. I just like the simplicity, dividend play, and I'm confident in the growth of financials long-term (these are overweighted to the financial side due to their investing mandate).

I've been buying PFE and TROW. I think the mutual fund game (asset accumulation) really benefits Fidelity, Vanguard, and TROW. I like BEN & Janus as well - but like what TROW offers over the long-term. Although I don't like conglomerates, per se, I do own MMC due to Kroll and the Putnam issues.

KO - I'll be buying on additional dips. I am no longer short PEP - and like what Frito will be bringing out in their new product mix.

I'm still buying, selectively of course :), energy firms.

I always add to a diversified index fund mix.

Google at $135 doesn't interest me. I wonder who it does interest...I hope I don't ever get that excited about a stock. I am using the service.

High growth firms like, OVTI & KTEC, are addressed over at the value thread. They don't really interest me at this point.

Mr. Softee offered folks a quick $3 bucks when the outcome was almost preannounced for a few months now.

I'm always trying to focus in on the large-moat business models (who isn't?). M* today has an article titled "Five More Hidden Stock Gems"
by Paul Larson for those who subscribe.

Why do I still get Ken Fisher, Marty Weiss, and every dooms day is coming newsletter offer for $189 - every single day! Unbelievable. I thought Ken was of good breeding - solid father in terms of investing; good financial writer; but he just won't let any of my mailing addresses alone with his advertisements. Please Ken please. Leave me alone....and then Lou Dobbs has his coming out. I like Lou, but ever since he went to and came back, I'm a little hesitant about taking his advice. :)
