Bottom Fishing

“We’re looking for out-of-favor, low-expectation stocks that may have already reflected a lot of negative sentiment, one of which would be in the telecommunications area.  We’re looking at a company called Qwest Communications , which is down over 60 percent since last year – a lot of positive things going on there yet pretty much abandoned by the market.”

Betting on Large Caps

"We like things that have a lot of international [exposure], have good earnings, are relatively cheap and have been holding up better than the market...Stocks like AT&T, which you also get some dividends with; Wal-Mart, ExxonMobil and Owens-Illinois, so there's some industrial in there.  A lot of international play and companies that are buying back shares are pretty important at this juncture in the market."
