If you are going to spend a lot of time on investing, then you need to look at as many things as possible, and you will find some bargains. The world isn't going to tell you where the opportunities are, so you have to find them yourself. The worst investment is cash, it will go down over time. The best investment is always a good investment. The financial panic is behind us. This will all end, but we don't know whether it will be a month for now or a year from now. You can't predict the bottom.
