    I just finished the book "too big to fail," and Wells Fargo is the one bank in the book that does not come away with a black eye. My concern with your recommendation of Wells is the Wachovia acquisition. In the book several banks (JPM, MS) look at acquiring them because of their deposit base. But, (and this was obviously several years ago now and hopefully that has changed) but they all walked away because of the bad debt on Wachovia's books.

    I think buy and hold is still alive. This is the three year anniversary of the bottom of the stock market crash . Thirty six months for Las Vegas Sands share's to go from 1.38 cents a share to 54.83 dollars. That means if you had $13,800 dollars at the bottom of the crash on 03/09/2009 and you bought 10,000 shares you would now have $548,300 dollars on 03/09/2012. With 10,000 shares you would be paid $10,000 dollars on your dividend every year. That's a 72% return of the money you invested 36 months earlier, and that's just on the dividend, and over a 3,500% increase in your stock price. No other stock did that
