I know there are a few smart dudes among the dawgsaloon, any finance guys? Thoughts on the following 1) buy real estate and rent it out? or wait for real estate to tank once again, then buy and rent stuff out. 2) selected indiv dividend stocks, both foreign and domestic? 3) EFTs both US and foreign? 4) gold going up or down? how about gold mining stocks? 5) bearish foreign currency ETF that trade higher as the dollar weakens?
