(A Top Pick Jan 9/13. 28.52%.) These are mostly regional banks. This was a no-brainer. We had the issue of home building in the US and it was an area that was poised to make a big move. Still likes.

(A Top Pick Jan 9/13. Down 2.87%.) Changed the name, which now indicates it is emerging-market momentum, which he does not like. The name change has affected how investors see this ETF and he would never Buy this now.

Would like to buy this bank but it keeps going up every day and feels he is chasing it. Buy now before it goes higher or can you see a pullback? This is always a dilemma. You have to establish a price that you want to pay for it and you buy it at that price. He would take a half position. There will probably be a Santa Claus rally that we get every year. The 1st quarter is always a good time to be in the marketplace.

Back in the 1940s every dollar invested in gold exploration returned $105. In 2000, that $1 returned $1 and today it is below $1. There is only one company that he has ever seen that has outperformed bullion. Buy iShares Gold Bullion (CGL-T) instead.
