    i have had EL estee lauder (wifes pick) for years. Right before the crash they announced a great quarter or something and spiked to $52, right now its at $29.

    I might take half that money from the intraday discussion and put it into them...

    I also have some speculative money in the terrestrial side of the business. Citadel Broadcasting, symbol CDL. It is a bargain at it's current price if they can manage to pay off there debt over the coming years. I had some bank stocks and got burned on them but got out before the bottom really fell out.

    The safe money is in AT&T and Qwest. Both have seen a drop this year but both pay good dividends. I won't get rich on them but the lower the price the more shares my DRIP buys.

    I think AAPL and MSFT are dead money... Until Steve Jobs can come out with something that rivals the ipod and iphone, there really are not a whole lot of catalysts out there for AAPL. Sure, once the market recovers, everything will start going up again, but I think there are probably better plays. I have been researching alternative energy plays, but nothing seems to be going right there either.

    Some of the bigger plays can be found in pharmacuticals, but those are so speculative that a single drug can bankrupt you or make you set for retirement.

    One of the biggest questions I ask myself is this: What companies have been hit the hardest by the economic slowdown, which when finished, will have the most to gain? The answer: Housing and Automobile Manufactures. Of course, now is not the time to be investing in those. I think come March or April it may be a different story.

    what are some good housing plays? i researched pharmacuticals but couldnt find anything i felt comfortable with, everything was either too expensive or too cheap. An alternate energy play my friend is always harping about is bfre, they deal in ethanol, have recievd quite a bit of money from the goverment to open plants, there in the middle of building a big plant right now, supposedly when they get it finished they'll shoot up. I hear there going to be making fuel out of quite a few diff things, supposedly there's all kinds of waste there planning to turn into fuel. Personnaly I dont think ethanol is going to take off, but i could be wrong. You should obviously research yourself cause i havn't, and im only going on what my friend has told me.
