We are starting off the February list a week early with the following recommendations.
The market will now face a test of what to do with that 60% plus run up in prices from 2009.
Always remember, those stock buyers still have to get to the profit window and the profit window after a market run up is to take those profits by selling.
Deferring taxes from 2009 could have been a factor from not taking profits off the table last year, however; what is the reason not to now.
Stay tuned as this week should answer a lot of questions regarding this extended run up of prices.
In the meantime, we are recommending a few early February credit spreads in the following issues.
