I like watching WMT. It's a great proxy for the economy. Bernanke tells you everything is just fine and WMT tells you the only thing people are buying is food.

Who do you believe? A kuncklehead economist who said "green shoots" were forming in the economy right before the biggest crisis in modern history in 2008? Or...the CEO of WMT where half of America shops every week and has the best distribution and technology of any company in the world?

The stock is flat since 1999. Even though it's been creamed the last few days, the relative strength is picking up. Someday this looks like it could be a huge winner again.
