May 2008 Issue & Supplement

These are uneasy times for investors. So why not make it just a little easier on yourself? We’re in the midst of a steep downturn for housing, and a credit crunch to boot.

But my warning was on target. We’re in the midst of a nasty little “correction” on Wall Street that promises to pull stock prices somewhat lower over the next week or two, maybe a bit longer.
