Stocks Fall to 12 Year Lows

According to, the Dow and S&P have fallen to 12 -year lows. At 7062.93, the Dow had its lowest close since May 1, 1997 and at 741.02, the S&P 500 had its lowest close since December 18, 1996.

Although the market may go lower, I think it will be a buying opportunity this week and plan adding to our positions in stocks that I believe will do well as the economy recovers, e.g. Amazon (AMZN), Monsanto (MON), and Google (GOOG).

Disclosure: At time of publication, we own shares of Amazon, Monsanto, and Google. In addition, we have sold put options to open on Monsanto.
