Hindsight; is always easy, but to Rain a clefcr perspocttVe view of the future takes work, thought and energy, Currently we have a similar situation. For example the merchandising and luxury. lines of business are set for a mlltf boom this fall and winter even after an extremely ffood summer. The trend of sales is strongly upward and is expected to do so tho balance of the year. Along with Increased sales have come wider profit margins which gives a double boost to the earnings factor. Tho earnings of a corporation give the leverage to a stocks market possibility for good earnings mean better dividends. In the present instance extra declarations are the prospect at or around the end of the year. Kxtra payments In themselves will in themselves help the merchandising business as those funds will bo spent with the holiday season. Aside from Individual and group situations the longer term money aspects of the market are favorable. Bond prices are extremely high and yields consequently lower than slock dividends. Cash in the bank Is undesirable. Cash in foreign markets Is doomed unwise. As a corolarry foreign funds In this country are more than likely to stay here with overseas uncertainties. And so to go with tho trend to buy good stocks und hold them IH deemed to be prudent management of money and Investment funds. (United Prcta Leased Wire) LOS ANCUSL138. Scot. I. ILKS, Sept.
