    Don't Be a Bull; Be a Balanced Bull

    "There is a proper balance between not asking enough of oneself and asking or expecting too much."

    -- May Sarton

    The year's off to an impressive start, with the Nasdaq in particular on a tear and technology and select retail stocks providing leadership. After threatening a technical breakdown at the end of 2005, the major indices have righted themselves and are threatening to break out to price levels they haven't seen in years. The Fed has seemingly adopted a more market friendly stance and economic data seem to be generally solid.

    Of course, things don't look so rosy to the bears, and they characterize this strength as just some temporary insanity caused by the new year. They argue that the consumer is due to die an ugly and painful death as the value of his home plummets and he cuts back his WalMart shopping budget. Maybe the economic stats don't look that bad, but just wait it will catch up with us, they warn.

    What is a market player to do? Do we ignore the strength that is in front of us and is making us money or do we ignore the fact that maybe we have gone a little too far, too fast? The answer is that we attempt a little balance. We stay positive but we make sure we don't set expectations too high. We take some profits when our stocks make big moves rather than focus on the hope of even more gains.

    Many market participants fail to realize that you can still be a bull even though you are doing some selling. Being bullish doesn't mean holding on to positions no matter what, but many investors have been brainwashed by brokers and mutual funds into thinking that selling is a sinful action that should only be done in the most extreme cases.

    The truth is that often the best way to play a market rally isn't to just hold on to the same stocks the whole time but to take some gains and rotate into some new stocks that have yet to fully participate. Obviously when a stock goes straight up the risks of a pullback increase. You can lower your risk and still stay invested by rotating into other stocks that may not be as technically precarious.

    Be a bull but also stay balanced. Taking profits while you continue to look for new buys when the market is hot is the way to keep growing your portfolio.

    We have some fireworks this morning on the jobs report. The headline number is well below estimates but is more than offset by a revision upward in November and a drop in the unemployment rate to 4.9%. The market is up strongly on the news, probably because of some hope that this will nail down the end of the FOMC interest rate hikes. The market seem a bit overly euphoric given the mixed nature of the news and I would not be surprised to see this open sold if the gap upward holds.

    Overnight oil and gold moved upward and overseas markets were mostly positive. Microsoft (MSFT:Nasdaq) has a downgrade this morning and we'll see if that has any effect.

    Position: No positions in stock mentioned
