    Given all of the volatility in the market over the past several months, many experts are betting that making money in the first half of 2008 is going to be largely about savvy stock picking.  But if your stock picking prowess isn’t up to snuff, you may want to consider investing in exchange-trade funds instead.

  • Outlook '08: Housing Will Be Wild Card For Economy Wednesday, 12 Dec 2007 | 3:50 PM ET

    Uncertainty and housing. Those are the key words in forecasts of the US economy in 2008.  And just how bad the economy performs depends mostly on the depth and duration of the housing recession and the great unknowns of the credit crunch.

  • Outlook '08: Real Estate Offers Bargains And Damaged Goods Wednesday, 12 Dec 2007 | 11:39 AM ET

    Betting on real estate these days is not for the faint of heart.  Between the housing correction, economic uncertainty, the credit crisis and predicted softening in the commercial property markets, determining where to invest for future returns requires an extra dose of due diligence and, let's face it, good old-fashioned courage.

  • Outlook '08: Commodities Will Run Hot And Cold Friday, 14 Dec 2007 | 8:40 AM ET

    The boom in commodities prices have captured the spotlight in recent years, but investors need to be selective going forward as some of these markets have likely peaked, analysts say. Energy and base metals should be approached with caution given expectations for a sluggish US economy, a major consumer of virtually all commodities, but grains may have room to rally.

    Fake Jane is very excited about 2008! She hopes to afford major reconstructive surgery which will turn back the hands of time. Or maybe she can at least afford better skincare products. Maybe she'll even go on a date! She's very optimistic that, even if she doesn't meet Mr. Right, she'll meet Mr. Desperate. Yes!
