GamTrak asked 1 year ago
I’ve never paid much attention to the stock market, but wanted to know if now is the time to buy into companies that cater to ‘necessities’ that we use everyday? I’m also thinking of Gambling, Alcohol & Tobacco Companies since they are known to do well in hard times. <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” />

Any tips you guys can offer?

Last week was the week to buy Seriously if you got 10-20 years to tie it up this is a buyers market.

I would only gamble (invest) into things I know a lot of information about but overall it’s not worth my time to sit down and get this research done. It’s gambling if you don’t know the game and investing if it’s your job; similar to a poker player. I have decided long ago stocks are not for me. Sure it might be tempting to buy into them in times like this but I still don’t trust what I think is happening behind the scenes to make this crash happen. To me it’s like a rigged game of poker and I don’t have any inside information of who is helping who.

I do think ity’s time to buy – wisely – stocks that will benefit from a massive recession. Because I do think this isn’t just going to blow over.

Well I think todays market action shows that it’s never wise to jump on a one day rise after a major sustained down turn.

Chips keep the political jabs in the politics area. We have plenty of threads there to discuss the elections. I am editing your post so I dont have to delete it.

Last week was the time to buy if playing the bounce, legal online gambling?

Last week was the week to pump your 401K as well, although the next 3-5 months should continue to be excelent 401K padding months as long as you have 5 or more years before you need it. Just like gambling, do not invest more than you can afford to lose.

Hey Bonustreak

Interesting you mention that… Was reading this article earlier:

Once the markets settle down, I’ll probably buy more of the index funds I already own. It certainly seems like a great time to invest.

On the other hand, these events are unprecedented — who knows how long it will take for the market to get back to where it was….

Yep, some cards have insane interest rates. I use my card as much as possible because I get 1% back on all of my purchases (and 3% back on all gas purchases), but I pay it off every month. Visa hates me.

Agreed.

I’ve been in cash for 9 months …

Mind you that’s easier to do confidently down here – when call accounts are running at 8% interest – and the local govenrment has just announced a limitless guarantee on local bank deposits.
:santa2:

We’re still earning well in business – so we are looking to protect wealth rather than speculate on a share market that is only slightly better than a roulette wheel.

Having said that – some stocks are looking damn cheap on historic fundamentals – but then again this is a new world with new credit rules – and it would not surprise me if in the next 6-9 months we see a mass of downgraded earning reports either – meaning share prices of poor performing companies have room to drop more.

Be careful out there guys n gals – don’t succumb to fear – and don’t fall for greed.

The raise on stocks this morning was pure logic.
The virtual nationalization of the banks in Europe was a relief for a global disaster, but the bills of the party are still there.

IMO, the real economy will be badly affected many years and the big question is about the future for real estate, manufacturing, commodities, impo/expo etc.
Japan was in recession from 1991/2001 after a similar crash.
