If you're going long term - what about biotech ETFs like BIB, IBB, XBI?  Short-term might be a little rough though.

I think Citi (C) has quite a bit of room to move up this year to catch up with the other big banks.  BAC is solid though for a while. 

US companies with lots of $$ overseas to repatriate back will be a good play as well.  CSCO and AAPL come to mind.

My non-sexy/value pick is American Eagle Outfitters (AEO).  3+% dividend, 11.5 P/E Ratio and low Price/Cash Flow and PEG Ratios to boot.

XLF is a good one at $23.  With the inevitable going to happen to Dodd Frank.. financials are a good play and this ETF is safe.

Haha I just left the market as well

I had AMZN, DIS, GM, TSLA, FB
sold all of them when the dow broke 20,000

my personal thoughts on those I bought (amzn might hit $1000, who knows, dis is solid with marvel, but I think espn holding it down, GM gives good dividends, tsla with the trump situation might be tricky now, FB hasn't done quite as well as I hoped, maybe due to fake news/VR)

so around 21% gain in a year...decided not to try my luck anymore.  Short term it was a good idea as those are all lower now...but I'll probably not be able to buy into those stocks anymore especially amazon.  I bought the day it fell to $550 or so...I think with the announcement of some competitor (Netflix I think with new shows)

I wish I was more ballsy to keep them forever, but I figure now is a risky time to be investing.

Biggest regret in the past year, I bought 1000 shares of GSV when it was around .95 or so (yolo style)...sold it when it hit around 1.03 since it was so up and down.  Today it's 2.81.... ugh that could've been 300% increase  :'(

I'll probably hold it as cash for a little longer until I see another amazon like situation

Hindsight 20/20.  There are plenty of times I missed the boat.  I got into Netflix early during my start of career at $15.. sold at $30.  Thought I did well with 100% right?  lol.

Just like Irvine real estate. Long ago could have bought some condos for $100k and SFRs for $200k, now how much are they going for? :)

So I'm putting my foot down and gathering fellow TIers to not let a good thing go!

IPO price may be high to see short term appreciation? FB took a while to see growth..
As someone pointed in the other post, I agree - no risk, no rewards!

In general, stocks are at an all time high today.  Do you TI'ers see this continuing for a while or a slow down?  If it's a slowdown, are any equity sectors safe?  I personally think bank stocks are relatively safe and utilities (with their higher dividends) might be a decent hedge. 
Thanks in advance for the 'thanks'!!

long term, snapchat will die. short term is a toss up.

I prefer FB as the social media play. I have a feeling they will be getting into the china market "soon".

I say this every week, then the next week I say the same thing.  Guess I'll keep.riding the wave, shorts are getting crushed.

I have WAY too much $$ in bank stocks...I'm just being hesitant to pull some out.  Maybe the market keeps going up until Trump gets impeached!

I'm concerned but not because how high the market goes up but rather how fast it went up base on euphoria of Trump policy. 

I'm very cautious right now, will hold on the index funds but seriously considering unload some tech stocks.

Cash is KING right now and in the near future. This run up is full of hot air.
