To begin our discussion of dividend stocks readers may want to look at a letter we wrote last year  on dividend stocks at

We reviewed these stocks at year end 2010 as noted in the following letter.  NOT ONE STOCK WAS AT A LOSS FROM THE ORIGINAL LETTER.

Zip Markets…

When you want to send a big file to someone you zip-compress it.  The markets have zipped a crash and recovery (maybe) into 31 days, if you can believe that.  Faster than the fastest hands at the good old shell game the market compressed an 15.84% downwave into 14 days, then compressed a bottom and (perhaps) recovery (10.45%)  into 17 days (to present).  (The long downwave which demolished the market in 08-09 was 292 (elapsed) days.)

The markets are unfolding as we foresaw in our last letter.  Occasionally we keep our mouths shut in order not to spoil the illusion of infallibility, also, when there is nothing more to say, why say it.  The Beta wave was turned back as we expected and the C wave is now in operation.  (Illustrated in our last letter.) Meanwhile traders piled into gold and silver.  Here a long term gold chart showing the danger of what is going on — gold poking its head up above the long term channel and quite possibly going parabolic, which will quite possibly end with traders getting parboiled.
