That the same time you're saying that they -- stocks you like right now the dividend payers and Chevron it's a Honda -- mean you you like these bigger -- stock name.
Yeah I mean basically we're looking at the fundamentals we're looking at valuations at solid dividend it's a clue that you've got a good.
