Ever since the Dow broke above 8,000, stocks have been in a trading range. And so far this week, volume has been very light.
What does this mean? Is the market going to press forward, rewind or pause?
Steve Reitmeister, Kevin Matras and I discuss the current trends and where stocks could be headed in the Roundtable Review.
In the video, I explain why investors should continue to look at stocks.
But that does not mean overpaying. Rather, you should seek out good companies which are trading at attractive valuations.
Also, Kevin Matras shows you an easy way to use Price-to-Cash Flow to find such stocks in the Screen of the Week.
Wishing you prosperity,
