I just moved all of my money OUT, that's right OUT of stocks and into bonds and other capital investments. Do you think this a wise move in this economic environment?

Let me make the following caveat...the move was made right after the stocks reached their 52 week high over 11K and before the most recent correction. By doing that I made about 46% and avoided the recent loses. Given the status of the housing market, lack of real financial reform world wide, and the condition of the European/Asian markets, I find it hard to believe that the markets will have much upward traction in the next 12 months...after that certainly, but not before.

I think now would be a good time to buy, because stocks will come back eventually. I also think you might want to invest in Apple, after all, they are releasing their new line of iPods in September. You should see a major rise then.

Apple seems to be the only stock that might be recession proof...something to consider!

I would stay away from the stock market mostly and stick to other investments like bonds and Roth IRA. I would only consider investing in stock market after I hit the yearly limit on those and only invest what I'm willing to loose.

I'm absolutely loving my Ford stock, among others. It's almost never a good idea to flee the market entirely, and you've waited an awfully long time to jump ship -- lots of stocks (like Ford) are flying well now. If you're near retirement age, maybe I can see liquidating one's stock portfolio, but anyone else should be in there and enjoying the ride.

I'm only 16, and I bought 3 shares of Ford back when it was 70% lower. I'm happy. :) (My Dad bought 200-some shares for an even cheaper price)
