Comments
Is the market in the near term, thru end of the year a buy and hold or should I be taking profit?

Marvin I think the board market continues to rally into the New Year but that doesn't mean every stock will go higher or the leadership won't change.† You have to assess the components of your portfolio and check to see the underlying fundamentals†still support for higher share price.† CP
