Buy List - Time for a Fresh Batch? (Members Only)
I am one reluctant bull! I am still trying to be bullish, I am trying to get enthusiastic about this rally and it’s been 3 weeks since I went to mainly cash rather than leave the majority of our Buy List on the table.  The Dow was at 10,850 that day and I didn’t think we’d see the top of 11,000 for more than a day but now we’ve been up here for 2 weeks and yesterday we had strong(ish) volume on a strong up day and I’m still having trouble believing it BUT - believe it we must as long as our upside levels hold.   Those levels are now:   Dow 11,000, S&P 1,200, Nas 2,500, NYSE 7,700 and Russell 720. We had a nice, relaxing holiday but now we have hard work ahead as I think the investing environment is littered with land mines - ready to blow up in our face if we take any mis-steps.  This bull has horns and we were gored by daring to go bearish in our $100K Portfolio but our Buy List is all bull and, hopefully, no crap as we try to make safe plays out of the finest companies.   Ideally, our Buy List plays are about finding bargains.  We may love AAPL, but they are not on sale.  Earning season will hopefully be a great time to do some bargain hunting so this list will be a work in progress but for today we’re just going to review our remaining open plays from the last list and also I would like Members to please use the comment section on this post to suggest companies we should be looking at .  Who do you think is trading way too cheaply?  We especially love dividend payers, of course and I’ll be looking for companies that service the top 10%, not the bottom 90% - who still look pretty screwed to me and, from yesterday’s news, it seems like the top 10% is down to the top 8% but it doesn’t seem to bother the markets so we won’t dwell on the implications until we’re below 5% and, of course, our goal is to be in the top 5% when it all hits the fan… After having really good timing on our Feb 8th entries , March 18th seemed like a good time to take the money and run and we shut down 2/3 of our Buy List postions.  Let’s do a quick review of the survivors, ones that were "so good" that I couldn’t bear to cash them out and see how they…
