SGZA Selective Insurance Group

SGZA Senior Notes offering just under 6%.  I consider this an excellent quality long term hold but no more than 1.0% of the portfolio. Buy Under $25,00.  Selective Insurance Group, Inc., through its subsidiaries, offers property and casualty insurance products and services.

CNBC Goes Crazy. Hold On.

The Federal Reserve notes caused a bunch of consternation. What a joke.  CNBC was creating a frenzy……..for ratings.  People were selling and shorting like crazy.  If you think the Fed is going to raise interest rates, I have a bridge to sell you.  I am not prepared to fight the Fed.

Still expecting a pullback in the markets, which should provide an opportunity to buy dividend paying positions.  But with Bernnie dumping gazillions of dollars into the market, I would expect the markets going Higher long term. There are many technical indicators telling us to bide our time.  […]
