"I will continue to re-invest dividends, capital gains distributions and take gains in my tax-deferred accounts to invest those proceeds in areas that I feel are undervalued at this time. In addition, if interest rates continue to rise I will look for long term, high coupon bonds with short term call features."
-- Cary W., Arizona

"Continue to invest in fairly conservative vehicles. I don't think this market will last."
-- Michelle M., New York

"I only buy companies with positive earnings and who also pay dividends, never buying companies with a PE over 16."
-- Steve W., California

"Have a well diversified portfolio with bias toward dividend producing blue chip stocks. The market will continue to up in this sector. I think the dollar will continue an orderly slide so people continue the flight to quality."
-- C.W.

"I'm a long-term, dollar cost averaging investor who builds my investments each month. So I'll be doing for the next 5-10 years what I've been doing the last 20 years; putting the same amount in each month regardless of market gyrations."
-- Ray M., Florida
