    Energy stocks are always a good bet for long term. Exxon/Mobil (XOM) is a good one.

    Force Protection (FRPT) for short term. They make mine sweeps and armored tanks that are literally indestructable.

    eBay (EBAY) is a winner for long term and the stocks are low right now.

    Yahoo (YHOO) isn't going anywhere and I think we all know it's a winner for the long term.

    Online brokerage firms are up and coming. Etrade (ET), Ameritrade (AMTD) and Charles Schwab (SCHW) are all good.

    Pet medical supplies and vaccines to consumers is always a good bet. There is only one publicly traded company to invest in - PetMed Express (PETS).

    Bonds are an excellent choice for long term savings.

    Certificates of Deposit are hot right now - with high yields.

    utilising authentic money is a worldwide remote from simulator. That stated, in user-friendly terms play blue sky breakouts. discover shares that are breaking out to new all-time highs. Use 10% below the breakout cost as your getting out factor. carry on for as long as accessible. sell losers, carry winners. in no way lose extra suitable than a million% of your finished account (money administration is extra import than technical or user-friendly prognosis). ie. you have a $5000 account. inventory breaks out at $10 (ARNA does no longer at present qualify, it had a blue sky breakout around $3 if I bear in mind). you purchase at $11. So your provide up loss is 10% below breakout or $9. meaning you have $2 turn away possibility. a million% of your $5k is $50. how many shares are you able to purchase? 25 shares. good success.

    For the short term I like Ford. The energy bubble is deflating, because of slowing economies and increasing inventories.
