What stocks are people buying in the stock market correction? Any good long terms plays with dividends.

Nothing right now. The dip is not done dipping.
Word is Credit Suisse is in deep shit with their inverse exchange traded note aka XIV.
Some sort of a trigger in the way the notes are constructed may cause them to liquidate the fund and that will have a ripple effect for sure. How big? That's the question.
Look for XIV to go to zero Tuesday.

I do not have the time to deal with single stocks. I pay my financial manager to deal with my investments.

I moved a bunch of money to cash a couple of weeks ago, I wish I would have moved more but at least I moved some. I sold 4 more stocks to move to cash. Good thread, I was thinking the same thing about where people would be moving money to.

I think I am going to move my money to stocks that pay dividends. If I can get 3-4% dividends on a stock that would be great. If the stock performs well that is even better. My FIL lived off of his dividend stocks.

I had some reitís paying hefty dividends. Luckily I was in low enough that itís done quite well.

If itís a true correction then the dip isnít over. Weíll see. Iíll probably buy the same ones I already own but now at a discount. AMD is finally making money for the first time in a long time. It seems so cheap to me right now.

Sell stocks before dip. Capital gain. Commission.
Buy stocks after dip. Commission.
Sell, or buy, before dip really happens or before dip really hits bottom. Blood pressure increase.

Bond Fund - Vanguard Long-Term Investment Grade Fund Admiral as of 1/31/18 - 1 year 9.39%, 3 year 3.09%, 5 year 5.58%, 10 year 7.67%.

Beats every dividend yield mentioned.

For every "look what I did" you have a "please don't look at what I did".

Before I was all index funds, I held Amazon. Money was tight with one in college, so when his tuition was due I had to sell something. I chose to sell Amazon, which hadn't moved in years. Got tired of waiting for Bezos to do something. I bought and sold Amazon since 1999, and in my buying and selling had made over 10% in less than a year (1999 - 2000). Then I bought a chunk in 2000, and between 2000 and 2006 it dropped 56%. I got tired of waiting, sold it. 400 shares at $31.04. End of January the price was $1,450. Those shares, sold for $12,400+, would be worth $580,000.

I dumped my stocks over the years and now am nearly 100% index funds, except for some IBM that I got below market when I worked there over 30 years ago. I should have sold it years ago when it broke $200, but I didn't. Huge tax gain. In over 30 years my money has grown by over 150%, but if I had put it in index funds it would have beaten that.

John Bogle is the man.

Funny, you advocate buying and holding funds, yet did not do that with individual stocks.

Are you saying your AAR was ~3%/year for 30 years?

Put $46K into an S&P 500 Index today; thank you for the discount.

Buy when everyone is selling but do not try to beat the system. Your secret info is from last week and the machines are way faster than you.

I never thought I would do it but I bought 10 shares of Amazon today. Just so much steady growth who knows when it will stop going up. If/when my stocks go back up close to what they were early last week I am going to move my money to stocks that pay dividends.

Right. I used to buy and sell. I stopped doing that close to 20 years ago.

IBM, since I bought it in 1984-85, is a lousy return, yes. I would have done much better buy the Index 500 back then. I've gotten much wiser over the years.

My $.02 worth... I think Amazon is changing the way America shops and will prove to be the next Microsoft. Once they get that market share, itís hard to knock them off. Thatís the only single stock I own and bought 20 more shares today.
