More Evidence Of Looming Capitulation – And Buying Opportunity Of A Lifetime

Posted by AGORACOM at 6:11 PM on Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

In keeping with my theme of how to turn market turmoil to your advantage for both CEO’s and investors, this Globe article serves as further evidence that capitulation is near. Capitulation is the point where investors are overwhelmed with pressure and want out at any cost, as clearly demonstrated by the following quote:

“You’re seeing all of this volatility, and retail investors need to deal with that.
And they don’t want to deal with it. They’re willing to sell, because they aren’t
worried about missing out on a big rally. They think that’s a small price to pay
for the sanity of sleeping well at night.”

If you’re an investor with even a little bit of cash, this is going to be one of the best buying opportunities of your life.

If you’re a CEO of a small-cap company, this is the time to place your company head and shoulders above your peers so that investors come to you once they’ve calmed down.

    Now, the value of C$ is down compare to US$ by $0.10 +/- ,

    Is that means for US investors it is a good deal to buy Canadian Stocks?

    Is QEC is well known for US Investors?

    It was my 2 cents or 2 x ??
