What is going to be the next big thing? If I am correct right now there are people buying something up. I am not sure what , but in a year or two you will start hearing rumblings about how "THIS" is the best investment and these people quietly buying now will sell off for billions while all the mini trumps jump in and try to make millions, while tohers get in too late and crash and burn.

I got into the .com a little too late. I made some profit but nothing close to others I knew. I missed the metals runup. Some metal stocks litteraly went up 10 fold in a year. I sat on a metal stock for 2 years. Sold it, broke even and a year later it went from $7 to $70. Too bad. I missed the oil boom. I should have dipped some money in a company like Valero that went up about 20X. I really missed the real estate boom. I remember in 2001-2002 driving through carmel valley and seeing signs for new 5 bedroom, 4 bathrooms homes from the mid $300s and laughing at who would want to live in this desert area. Little did I know...

So I ask you piggs. What is the next big thing?

Shhhhh. Don't tell anyway I told you. But, I "heard" that home prices in San Diego NEVER go down. Buy lots of SFHs now!!!!!!

You got to buy now, otherwise you'll be priced out!!!

It's never been a better time to buy a SFH then now!!!!! Prices have stabilized, and mortgage rates are going to go up soon!!!!! You better lock in that low low 8% rate while you still can!!!!!

Can't afford a home? That's all just a state of mind!!!! There are great loan packages that don't require you to sell your kids, your arms and ,legs. 1st and second mortgage not sufficient? Don't worry there are 1st, second, third and , fourth mortgage programs!!!!!! And the great thing is that if you really can't afford a home later, well the problem really isn't yours!!! What a great country we live in!!!!!!!!

But hurry, rush to your nearest realtor/loan officer/appraisal today. This great deal won't last soon!!!!!!!

And shh,, please keep this investment tip a secret!!!! You don't want other people to find out!!!!!!!!!

I think even the shorts have made their money. When the DOW had its two big dips the Money Makers probably walked away with a lot of cash. Usually by the time you hear about a good deal, its too late.

Geriatric plastic surgery.Replacement Knees. Artificial hearts with on board computers and a usb connection.

I remember about 8 years ago artificial hearts was the next big thing. I knew a lot of people that invested and maybe doubled their money based on the hype, Time magazine had stories, 60 minute ahd a story but nothing really panned out in an investment sense. Maybe this time around it might be the next big thing.

You mentioned this yourself, but it seemed like everything opposite to what you do turns out good. Therefore, for my selfish reasons, I wanted you to short the markets.

That is funny!
I was thinking to adjust for vital demands on a situational basis. Exercise vs. sleep ect. Maybe communication devices will be implanted. Would you like and Ipod or a cell phone to start?

I am ready for a subdermal identification chip. If I can eliminate my car keys, wallet, money and not have to remember any passwords, sign me up. The dog has one and doesn't seem to mind.

The next big thing is SPAM.

Leverage up big-time Buy Hormel stock now.

In the upcoming recession and panic, you will need to stock up on ammo, water and something with a long shelf life. SPAM is the ideal long-shelf life survival food.

SPAM consumption is currently 40% below it;'s long-term average. Since we believe in mean reversion the consumption levels have to return to normal.

Plus it's their 70th anniversary and they are marketing like crazy
