Investment outlook 2011: Where will you put your money?

By Sarah Halzack

The Washington Post checked in with managers of three of the best-performing stock funds from 2010 to learn more about their investing strategies for the new year, what sectors they've got an eye on, and whether they have a positive outlook for 2011.

Now, we want to hear from you.

I would consider what money is before you 'put' it anywhere.

Money is a tool for society. It brings liquid inter-commerce interchange. One step up from barter really.

Money at the end of the day has value because of the integrity of a community.

Famous world philosopher of money Jacob Needleman points out that money has value because we merely believe it has money. It borders into the spiritual when it comes to belief structures. Needleman's "Money and the Meanging of Life" is a good read.

I like to believe that when you consider 'pocketing' money, you are really attempting to make static and atomic the integrity of the community. It is a nice gesture, but you really can not 'pocket' money.

The idea is more functional than anything else.

So, next time you think of 'money' ?

I suggest you replace it with 'integrity of community'.

After all- the idea of a nation state is to come out ahead as to otherwise not adopting nationalism ? right ?

Is it not profound 'money' reaches the tip of the cup of it's volume AT nationalism ?

Money ultimately divides us so long as it's nation state derived.

Nationalism divides humanity.

Money seeks to bring a collective economy.

I can not see the two ever lasting long before divorce.

Where should you put 'your' money' ?

When Warren Buffett was asked (of all places Fox Business News by Liz C.) "Why are you giving away your 38 billion dollars when you die ? "

Buffett responded "it was never mine, it was societies".

Indeed

I sit camp with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, BOTH TOP winners on capitalism who I observe said- SPECIES AS ATOMIC FIRST - before NATION STATE.

Yet ? Money is derived by a given nation states integrity.

You can figure it out on your own time.

I have to my own liking - money is a DEVICE - a TOOL - nothing more. It is not meant to be 'pocketed' -

If I HAD any money ? Where would I put it ?

Into business schemes, to hire people- I have unending business schemes, I lack ability to arouse venture capital.

Money is not capital either.

Capital generates money.

Money does NOT generate capital.

Author of Rich Dad Poor Dad spells this out. Money is NOT capital.

So many thoughts on this matter.

So little space to write about it.

I think money is better spent or given away than 'put away'.

I'd examine what money means

when you see poverty.

As fit as it is to say Nationalism divides humanity ?

Any money derived from a nation state model ?

has no integrity.

Nationalism can not integrate humanity.

It divides it.

Money can not integrate.

It is delusional to chase after money.

You are only seeking to destroy that which brought you into being.

part 1:

Forget the question "Where are you going to put your nation state derived currency".

I'd move upstream to ask

"Where are you going to place your identity when faced with the realization that nationalism divides humanity unnecessarily and why are you seeking to divide humanity unnecessarily ? "

THAT is the question.

Forget nation state derived money.

Ask yourself why you would want to divide humanity by nationalism ?

This nation - THAT nation - "I'm American- I hate the French" "I'm French, I hate Americans" ? Yet ? You need a kidney ? You tell me - does it matter ?

How is it the PARTS of humanity are traded - aside from religion OR nationalism ?

to seek sustaining life -

perhaps that is it ?

who's life ?

The needs of the many outweigh the one ?

OR ? is it ?

USA #1 Money MY personal afterlife through Christianity and Savings account at Bank of America- the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many ?

Banks to some degree play part in dividing humanity.

Nation States play the main part.

And that is why we are seeking to reveal this.

Wikileaks is MERELY A PART of the effort.

I'm taking EVERYTHING thanks to Porter Goss

and it's going to be BANDSTANDED TO THE WORLD TO SEE-

US ? and let's be fair - France too-

TOAST

When I'm done - there will BE NO US Department of State

Julian is merely a PLAYER.

And I dare you to tell me

the truth is stoppable.

And you know it.

And I hope you go celebrate being human now - and be BRAVE enough to stand up to nationalism and say- HEY - indeed- Tim is right - this unnecessarily DIVIDES humanity.

Besides, moving tectonic plate theory shows Pangea Ultima in 130 million years will have all continents as one again -

Join the winning model- TRUTH and HUMANITY.

Or -

Go decide what you will 'do' with 'YOUR' money.

The difference between you and Warren Buffett is - Warren realizes as TOP WINNER in capitalism ?

The money was never 'his'.

and that is the message I seek to enlighten you to.

If you do not understand this - I suggest you go open a savings account at Bank of America.

to which ?

You will feel the WRATH OF what the US DOJ only WISHES it could stop.

Too bad DOJ couldn't act on Goldman

When Goldman SUCKED 6 TRILLION out of US CITIZENS HOME EQUITY. Awe Gee- Goldman had to pay an SEC CIVIL fine of - 500 million.

TAKING - MY GOD - if only you knew.

Two things happen while I am alive - and I will live to see this:

#1 - US CIA is unbound.

#2 - I'll let you figure that one out.

It's bigger than a bread box, and it's bigger than a nation state.

hint - has to do with HUMANITY - UNDIVIDED.

And I dare say

Turn your back on your nation state? Traitor label - whatever

Turn your back on HUMANITY ? - There are few words necessary to translate that in any eternal context.

YOU PICK

MONEY - can not - be ANY means to derive persona.

Gates and Buffett don't go for the yacht.

I suggest you do not do either.

Humanity #1 -NOT USA - OR France - HUMANITY!

Think I'm kidding ?

Keep your eyes on WIKIELAKS and DOJLEAKS.COM (my site). I figure what jury will ever support the DOJ in protecting over 4,000 NAZI'S ! ! ! !

President Obama is a decent guy.

I really feel for him

that he stepped into a hornets net left behind from the Bush family.

I wish a second term - and I wish he takes ACTION with PROPER INTEL -

and I hope under his Presidency - we witness the END of the CIA.

I'm going to make that an EASY choice for him.

One world.

One species - we can act responsibly towards other life forms - yes.

But FOR STARTERS -

NATIONALISM ENDED on August 7th (Was the 7th in Japan) in Hiroshima.

WAKE UP TO THAT ?

And you're 1/2 way there to my game.

I'm not ANTI-humanity.

I'm anti-nationalism.

There is NO REASON TO DIVIDE humanity ANYMORE -

BUY INTO THE DIVISION ?

And I HOPE you bank at Bank of America.

FIGURE IT OUT.

Post Hiroshima ?

It has been one long train of energy sector profits purported as nationalism.

Cheney and Bush were the PINNACLE.

It is sad to witness privatization by those seeking energy profits

when you have true leaders like Buffett and Gates - who at the top of the 'known' ladder ?

recognize money is a device of the people, for the people.

Then you have the Bushes, the Winfreys- the Yacht seekers.

the phony front of humanity -to where it's all about how FINE they can cover their OWN arses.

Fine cushions.

Fine yachts -

There is a movement to undermine all nation state currencies -

I suggest you prepare for a few year interim after the ball is dropped.

Wikileaks is MERELY a player-
Jman is NOT the orchestrator - I'd leave Julian alone.

However - fascist governments will collapse through ONE FORMAT

MPEG

And you can take that ?

All the way to Monica Goodling and Lane McCotter ALL thanks to the US DOJ.

Think I'm KIDDING ?

WANT TO SEE SOMETHING ?

PSSST- it's FAR BIGGER THAN ME -

And the TRUTH IS UNSTOPPABLE US DOJ

TOO BAD you didn't CLEAN THE BLOOD ON THE TRACKS at Abu Ghraib

we have GIVEN YOU AMPLE TIME

AND YET ?

NOTHING

Goldman ? YOU JUST SIT THERE -

NOTHING - while the US Citizens home equity was LOOTED.

BUZZER RINGS -

Are you shooting for the hoop DOJ ?

Even after all the negative publicity of the way the Wall Street has been doing its "business", nothing seems to change for the better! For many years,other than occasional success stories in catching the "crooks", SEC is routinely being outsmarted by the powerful Financial Community. The Bi-Partisan Commission which investigated the recent catastro-
phical events could not even agree on a unanimous "Final Report" on the
misdeeds of the Wall Street Rating Agencies, Banks, and the rest of the players!. They are not being blamed to the extent they deserved to be blamed! The Banks got "bailed out" and the Wall Street folks now are back to doing business "as usual" and, as in the past, soon will be rewarding themselves with "huge bonus"! In the meantime, Trillions of Dollars of wealth of innocent investors,401-K and Retirement Funds got wiped out! "Synthetic Derivatives" and other bogus esoteric instruments, Super-Speed Computers and even
the new gadget of "Circuit-Breakers" - these are some of the tools being used by the "Mighty Smart Folks" of the Financial Community. Furthermore, other factors making the future look "dark" are: this Nation's huge "National Debt", "deficit financing", "low Savings by public", "the overhang of future Inflation" and, of course, Wall Street's "Greed is Good" mentality. Against this backgrop, average American Investor has no chance of
getting ahead! It is a shame!

I got back into the market in late January of 2009. The market dipped further for another two months or so. It was a little hard to swallow then. Finally, by March it turned around. I bit my lip and held on during those months, and that was tough. You have to be able to lose money (even if it's paper) to work the market. The good news is since March of 2009 have never done better over the past 2 years.

Now, moving forward, I don't think it will ever be as good as the past 18 months. I have now put a 10% stop loss orders on all my riskier stocks so I can lock in at least 90% of those profits. Large cap high dividend stocks will do good for the next year and I will continue to buy them.

Housing is another story. If housing hits bottom and begins a real rebound, the market will explode. I don't think that will happen for another 3-5 years. There's a glut of housing inventory that needs to drop.

In the short term(0-2 years) assuming the housing market lags, the market is still risky but it's on the right track as long as the Government doesn't raise taxes on gains or dividends. If those taxes will go up significantly, (assuming nothing happens when the last tax bill provisions expire) move your money into cash or other equities less affected by those tax laws.

Out of bonds except for inflation-adjusted instruments. Most of portfolio is in dividend paying stocks, with a healthy cash reserve. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

The variety of Nations, races, cultures is a creation of God. It is a chance to gain immense graces by learning to respect, share and view variety as riches. This is a chance to both take and receive from these riches. Variety of size, colour, culture, clothing, in the human specie along with variety in plant and animals is a richness that is provided from God...... so take advantage of this to reap from it. Your challenge is to advance His kingdom and rejoice in variety.

I have some money, and it has to be put somewhere, so....

The banks aren't really paying much interest right now. Ditto for the Fed with their treasury bonds and bills.

I've been in and out of various stocks on a trading basis since May or so. I think I'm up about 15% since that time, but I've been conservative. Anyway, I've been doing better more recently, so maybe things will get better. Many people think the economy is improving, so the market is moving higher. Whether the economy is really improving is another matter, but for the time being, I'll go with the flow and pretend that it is and invest accordingly. If things start to look bad, I can sell my stocks in about two minutes and be back in cash.

Citi. Pullback this week on Mass court ruling on mortgage foreclosure documentation is a buy opportunity that will keep price under $5. Price will close over 5 within three months, opening up stock to more investors. Dividend announcement coming before end of year. Price target by year end: $8. Two year price target: $15.
