>>As I mentioned in my last post, I don't value stocks strictly on their P/E ratios. That is why I don't get too jazzed up about current P/E values<<


KJ,

You are right there is a better indicater than p/e. Its called the insider sell/buy ratio. The insider sell/buy ratio is now just below 6. This means that insiders have been selling almost 6 times as much stock in their own companies as they have been buying. Why would they do that? Do you think they are selling because they think their stock is going higher?

As I mentioned to another poster - if you know more about the state of corporate america than the insiders who run the various companies, than all the power to you -you are a better man than me.
