Investment Strategy 1. Too-late to sell large-cap financials. 2. Entering a period in which diversifying away from leading sectors makes sense. 3. Tax strategy could involve swapping within the high yielding financials. We continue to own Citigroup, Bank of America, Wachovia & US Bancorp. 4. We have confidence that low interest rates & a strong demand for yield will lead to a rebound in our high income portfolio.
