I think it was the early 20th century Wall Street financier Bernard Baruch who said something like "when you get stock tips from your shoe-shine boy, its time to sell"

For about the last several months, many of the investment discussion forums I've visited have been dominated by shoe-shine boys. I see very little in the form of fundamentals and earnings potential in the discussions.

We have sold all of our tech and am working selling small caps. We're about 50% cash right now. Yes, this is exposed to inflation, but I'll take that in exchange for not feeling the pain of a significant correction I sense is headed our way.
