Again, for emphasis, I am not a perma-bear or a Cassandra; I am simply responding to the fundamental and technical realities of the marketplace.
If the U.S. stock market falls in line with my expectations, I am optimistic that there will be plenty of developing opportunities. Indeed, even in the recent modest 3% drop from the recent highs, I have already begun to uncover selected and new long investment ideas, including Yahoo! (YHOO), Sourcefire (FIRE), Fusion-io (FIO) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY).
As we enter this year's final three months, the one thing I am certain about is that uncertainty will characterize the investing, economic, profits and political backdrop.
Accordingly, I continue to expect the balance of the year to be one in which there is a lot of volatility.Hopefully, this will provide us with a chance to deliver good investment returns through opportunistic trading, a strategy that I have begun to employ more aggressively in recent weeks.
