Hi Ed,

I'm going to want to be redeployed into other strategies (well before rates actually start to move up).

That certainly is the thing to do with bonds, REITs and other inflation sensitive positions but strong growth companies, also paying dividends (AAPL, ORCL, INTC, etc.), will continue to be the best play on overall appreciation. This can be checked with 50 years of data going through 18% interest rates.

Bottom line, other than going to cash or some exotic investment, strong companies paying dividends cover all economic conditions (IMHO- FWIW and all other disclaimers).



if the above was from TMF marketing, there would have been many "sales" words
