Hate to Say I Told You So, But...

...check out this clip from the 10/4 commentary.

"If I have not made my point clear enough by now, then let me try it again. The bull market is not over. Just unfortunate that our political class continues to cloud the issue with their ill-timed antics. So best to buy the dips when the opportunity avails itself like now."

For all those who did not waver in the face of this recent pullback, then congrats on the reward that came your way with Thursday's massive bounce. Now stocks are back above the 50 day moving average...and likely to stay above if the folks in DC can avoid mucking things up again.

Now we can gladly turn our focus to the profitable investing ideas in the articles below:

Earnings Whisper Access Closes Tomorrow

The government may have "shut down," but a Zacks research breakthrough can help you ride what might be one of the best earnings seasons ever. With astonishing accuracy, it signals a handful of positive surprises before earnings are reported. So you can buy before the surprise. Then sell after the price pop.

By special arrangement, while 2,656 companies are reporting during the next 30 days, you can focus in on those quick, substantial gains for a total of only $1. But please note that this is a restricted service. Entry closes Saturday, October 12.
