That investors are far from bullish may indicate more life and potential upside to this market rally. But nobody really knows. The third quarter saw quality blue chips enjoy better relative performance. As our posture remains defensive, we hope that this beneficial trend will continue.
Why doesn't Mitt Romney spend more time talking about housing given that Obama doesn't have a politically winning argument on this front? Well, it turns out that Obama hasn't left Romney many politically attractive options to do so.
