    There are some companies out there right now that are making the grade for investing at a bargain. I believe that there is going to be more in the near future. What do you think the recession will bring for the bargain shopper/investor minded value seekers?

      There are always going to be bargains on the market, and no doubt there are more to come. I looked at your hub talking about American Eagle Outfitters being prime for a value play, I would disagree if not only for the fact that we are straddling the fence on a possible recession. I did see that you think we are currently in a recession but either way American Eagle Outfitters is a risky play. Even if the numbers are good it's a retail store and in an economy such as this one the risk greatly outweighs the reward.

      Stick with blue chips/ well known stocks that are highly undervalued for value plays. This ensures that even if they dip a few more points over the next few months they will recover and continue to climb. Companies such as Coca Cola, Nestle', General Electric, or Wrigley, I haven't looked at all these for current prices but I do know Coca Cola is trending below average right now and many of the others surely are as well. These companies will continue to increase in value in the long term. Key being the long term, in an up and down, possibly recession bound market, you can never know what a stock may do.

      If I had to guess I would think AEO is heading south before it will head north, but that is simply a guess without looking at any data.

      Hello Friend,

      You are right the time has come topurchase shares of big companies and make money. If purchased shares now will be great if not purchasing shares now will be a great loss.

    Given the slide in the greenback, US investors might do better putting their hard-earned cash into overseas markets.

    Even if the market goes sideways, you win on the currency conversion ... just buy an index fund.

    Market analyses will only tell you what the market is doing. The secret is to wait for the market to talk before trading and continue to listen in case it changes its mind. Right now the market is trending upward and you should trade in that direction. What the market will do in “future”, it’s only the same market that will be able to tell us then. If “then” it will be trending downward, I will trade in that direction.
