What bonds"? Would it be better to invest in a co. that was wiped out in the blast? BP

Get ten shares of Triquint NASDAQ: TQNT. They make gallium arsenide chips. Then walk away from it for a few years. You will be happy when you look at it again. Don't buy in pre-market activity or at the open. Wait until about 10:00 Eastern time. Jim

Buy US Gov't bonds only if you want to park funds in something safe not for an investment. Govvies are trading below 3% for maturities below 5yrs. Applied Materials. That cause I own it and I want it to go up. So please buy a shitload of Applied Materials. For no apparent reasone other than my benefit. I got it at 65, then 40, then at 30. So my cost is 45 anything higher than that would be greatly appreciated. I figure with 10K members buying 10K share a piece that would rally the stock a bit for me to get out at say......sixty. So help a fellow member out, buy yourself 10,000 shares of Applied Materials tomorrow. Cause I really need the money. OH BTW, word is institutionals will be buying heavily tomorrow if Main Street sells off.

I only want to demonstrate confidence in the market, not make money. BP

I recommend a few Bulgarian, AK folding stocks. Seriously, any defense related stock should prosper, and would be patriotic to boot.

I'm not an investment advisor (although I play one on TV), I'd say that just any defense-related stock would probably be a decent choice — Raytheon, E-systems, Texas Instruments, etc. Really bad choices would include Boeing, Airbus and most airlines — at least for the short haul, or unless you can buy at ultra-bargain-basement prices.

Texas Instruments (TXN) - defense related and I think Cisco (CSCO) could be a good choice for the networking aspect. I believe companies that don't have alternate data sites soon will.
