My overall view of the markets has not changed much since early October. My Best Buy (BBY) investment has yet to pan out, and the stock has dropped as the company has put out near-term warning. But we may soon see some clarity as to whether or not the founder will make a fully funded buyout offer.
The election is over, so that uncertainty has come to an end. However, I expect this to quickly be replaced by other uncertainties regarding US company earnings, the global economy, and the fiscal cliff. As always, I am standing by, waiting for any opportunities that may arise from investors getting either too hopeful or too fearful.
