We're asking ourselves some important questions these days. We're at or near 50 and are socking retirement funds away like crazy but are nowhere near our goal.

For nearly a year now, we've let our retirement dollars accumulate in cash as we ponder--along with most folks--What To Do Now. A few of our stocks--JNJ, for example--have not been totally nailed, but we're concerned that stock valuations are still unreasonably high and vulnerable.

So, assuming that the market is unlikely to recuperate significantly over the next few years, here's a hypothetical question:

You have no debt. You own no property. IF all your tax savings were suddenly cashed out today, where/how would you invest those funds today and for the next 5 years if they were NOT in a tax-advantaged account?

If stocks are part of your strategy, what sectors will be the steadiest gainers, in your opinion? (Hmmm--waste management is starting to look good....can always count on waste...). Our thinking: consumer non-cyclables, medical care/drugs, value retail, banking(?)

yer thoughts?
