Well, as far as the stock market is concerned, I'm licking my wounds like everyone else this week. I guess the only saving grace (to my mental state) is the wonderful win by my Heat last night. Congratulations to all Spurs fans for a scrappy, intense and fair played series, especially the last two games which surely go down in history as being among the best ever played. Denco, I'll be sure to let you know when we can come to Vegas to collect the bet.

Now that we have that little distraction behind us, I suggest we must decide how to best manage our respective investment portfolios, or at least learn how to identify and take advantage of our next buy opportunities. I personally feel this downturn is only temporary, is a much overdue correction, and will see a bottom (and turn around) soon.
