Like the housing market, it's all about risk and timing.

But some stability and growth would go a long way to making my stomach quit doing flip-flops, however.
now that Conoco-Phillips is planning to split, what's your investor have to say about how to play their stock?

Interesting read on the Hang Seng, btw.

it makes sense: an export-driven economy, but if nobody is buying, exports go down. france's GDP was zero the last quarter. the next downturn may be starting. it takes two quarters of negative growth to make a recession, but that's just a book definition
