    There's probably not more than 75 houses within a mile of me, and I'm not sure how I'd find out if any of them went into foreclosure so it's kind of a wack bet, so just send me the Patron and we'll call it good.

    Oh, a lot I'm sure. But the combination of rising materials and labor costs and diminishing land availability will keep prices at least stable in my 'hood, I'm betting.

    I'd like to suck on some of that Patron titty, if you please.

    Don't I get some kind of kickback for starting the thread that produced the bet?

    I'll collect, say, 3.7% of the liquid volume of the Patron from whichever one of you two win.

    Last quarter treated me well, this quarter is looking pretty good. My investments are spread around a bit, though.

    Anyway, should I take the profits & reinvest after the crash? If so, plz indicate dates and safe harbors for the interim period.

    Note that a 4% drop in the next six months and 20k by 2012 aren't even remotely mutually exclusive.

    The question remains, is the DJIA going to tank/drop/hiccup/whatever you want to call it based on your relative and long term perspective/etc in the next six months?

    If the S&P 500 holds near 1500 through June contract expiration I'd say no. Short term, accelerated gains in Nasdaq and S&P 500 are needed to confirm the new highs.

    I am pretty sure they delisted your holdings in Confederate Slave Trade, Co., the East India Company, and Wright Brothers Rubber years ago.

    iceman is so old he remembers the days of tickertape.

    And to answer Yoss's question, I have greatly diversified my portfolio in anticipation of an overvalued US equities market.

    You're right, should we make the burden higher?
    Any takers at DJIA 12,500 within the next six months (while on the way to 20,000 in 2012, of course )?

    Seven years after the crash of 2000, the NASDQ has yet to come near its highs of that time. It is possible that it never will.

    Some analysts see that as bullish, arguing that all of the indexes have to see new highs before this bull is over. Others posit that it is highly bearish since this bull market ran its course a long time ago and it's just matter of time for the entire market to realize it.

    After losing all of my retirement in the crash of 2000, I was comfortable lightening up a little bit last month. I can't (and won't) let what happened to me in '85, '97 and '00 happen to me again.

    I probably lightened up too much and too early this time but that's OK by me. I've learned I'd rather kick myself for gains I may miss than kill myself for losing money I actually had.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- U.S. home prices fell for their third straight quarter, according to an industry report released Tuesday.

    The median price of a single-family home fell 1.8 percent to $212,300 for the three months ended March 31, compared with the first quarter of 2006, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

    It was the third consecutive quarter of decline, and prices are now down 6.5 percent from their peak of $227,100 in 2006.
