I need real advise

I am about to receive $1500, and i want to invest it. With the market down what should i do? Any day now congress is going to pass a bill to fix the market, right? I was reading on these forums for a bit, i know one person says AAPL, anyone else? Dell is at $15 compared to Apples' $100. Does anyone here expect dell to bounce back?

It was sent to the Senate and attached to another bill, they voted yes and it was sent back to the House and then they voted yes on it. Bush signed it like an hour after it passed. And as soon as it passed, the markets dropped.
I would say hold on to your money for a lil bit.

Invest in my college education. I'll pay you back someday, or better yet when I run and win a congressional seat I'll send some pork barrel cash your way.

Pharmaceutical companies, Health Care providers, Energy Companies

PG is a risky bet considering most of their products are for hygiene and personal care on a superficial level. People will cut back on those first.

Full disclosure: I am in growth mutual funds, foriegn mutual funds, SGP, EMC, & RBS

Money markets are ok. You just have to remember that they will not grow for you as well as invested in somthing that is a higher risk.

Farther away you are from retirement the high risk you should be. Hold on tight while the market goes up and down. Closer you get to your retirment day get less risky.

Hate the player not the game.

Aegon is a life insurance, annuity, pension company. They had a 6% increase in applications 3rd quarter and a 5% decrease in premium for there goal. This means there business is growing. Sure there investments are down right now, but whose isn't.

Long term businesses that btw, just received 3 billion Euro...

John Deere is a very profitable manufacturing company, that is down right now and is run very well. They have orders lined up for over 2 years...

Why would a manufacturing company making profit every quarter suddenly be worth 1/3rd its value?

The market is trading on emotion right now. These are two of my longer term plays in the market. My last short term plays averaged just under 14% gain in 6 days.

My earlier post since you want to bag on me for not knowing my ****...

Ok people last week at this time I told you that a rally was coming in the market, and I touted 11 stocks right here. Well I thought that I would give you an update on those stocks.

NAME------------Open 10/24----------Close 10/30-----%
DIA--------------$79.97--------------$92.50---------15.67
SPY--------------$84.87--------------$96.30---------13.47
XLF--------------$13.17--------------$14.81---------12.45
QQQQ------------$28.12--------------$32.84---------16.78
GS---------------$96.62--------------$91.11-----------5.70
AAPL-------------$90.28--------------$111.04-------22.99
MCD--------------$52.00--------------$57.87--------11.28
GDX--------------$15.84--------------$21.70---------36.99
MS---------------$15.57--------------$16.09---------3.33
BA----------------$42.97--------------$50.70---------17.99
C-----------------$11.99--------------$13.11----------9.34

Now Goldman will sack you lost money and Morgan Stanley would have qualified for my stop loss, but all the others are doing nicely. I think that there still is quite some upside to go, although the financials really haven't been participating yet and we are coming to a resistance level at 9500. If the financials can manage to follow along here for the next couple of days, the market could break through the 9500 level and start heading for the 10500 level before it all comes crashing down again. However, it has already moved over 10%, and if it fails here, rest assured I will catch it and get some of the 10-15% decline that is sure to follow.

That's a 13.8325% gain on funds invested

My short term stuff is on hold. I do not think the market is ready to bounce back this next week, I think we will have mixed reviews/reactions to it as mortgages slow, credit remains harder to get, unemployment rises, and the wars continue.
