The indices finished the week lower for the 3rd week but not that much lower. Investors are confused as to which way to turn. We are all looking for some kind of sign. Perhaps the Good Witch of the North will offer some assistance come Halloween but if not I am afraid we will remain on our own simply because no one knows what is coming next. What I do know for sure is this is the most overvalued stock market I have seen in my 36 years in this business and when it decides to drop it will be like falling off a cliff. The best bet might be to take profits on the big stocks and find some small stocks to move to. If we want to get into this market we have to look for bargains in the small caps and special situations in the low-priced arena. Choose wisely! (continue)
