  • No Time for Tech Thursday, 13 Nov 2008 | 11:43 PM ET

    Today was a triumph of the technicals over the technological. Today was a day we touched the Dow 8,000 level -- down 20% from where Cramer last said to sell. When you hit that level, you catch buys. If you're using Cramer's strategy of buying stocks with bountiful dividends like CAT at 4.5% or Nucor at 4%, you caught a great price earlier in the day. Now you should be done buying and, as the high-yielders rally, it's time to start the selling. You can't buy again until the stock takes out your last low price and the yield's even bigger. That's the only strategy that's worked consistently in this crazy market -- stocks that bounce most have the biggest yields.
