Unless you can predict stock prices, it’s never a bad time for bottom fishing for things that are cheap.

In my experience, when things are cheap in an overpriced market, and the rest of the market drops by another 30%, then the cheap things will probably get even cheaper, unless we’re talking about 2000, when small caps with really good earning potential were just totally out of favor.
Do we have a situation like that, or are those cheap companies cheap because they are in some kind of financial trouble? Because that’s not likely to get better in the coming downturn, and there’s nothing so cheap it cannot get cheaper. I don’t have to remind you of 2008 :)
