    One would think that if a company was going to fail it would of done so.

    Just remember that all markets go in cycles, looks like we are having the war scenario doom and gloom and this will drive up resource stocks, inc Gold.

    But remember that this is but a small blip on the investment timescale, I think that it is time (or nearly time) to start looking at stocks that have been oversold due to the ever hopeful finally selling out from the tech boom and people withdrawing from the market due to fear about terrorists and war.

    I do tend to trade the cycles but invest counter cycle, that is why I am still here posting.

    Take a leaf out of Warren Buffetts book and go against the sheep.
