I am in for the dividends only. Making money in this climate is really hard and I dont have the time to do the proper amount of leg work needed do be in like I was. I am sticking with the blue chips, the GE's, P&G, Kraft, and Duke energy is giving almost a 8% yield. I like that. Big caps arent going anywhere, but stay away from the autos, atleast anything in Detroit.

SBSI " " 7.34%
UNH " " 5.02%

and a few others . . . but I was wrong, only 4.76%, end of day sell off

I look for good solid companies that have been ScooterBuilt (backhanded) by the market

most pros I listen to say not to time the market, because by making that a habit, you end up losing.

just invest ongoing with money that you don't need to have around
