Tanks met here for chief investment officer is here now with his reaction.
As well do you feel any better now knowing.
That -- you're speaking once again in a deal could be somewhat closer.
Oh absolutely and I think -- the big issue here is.
If we can bridge of the -- -- get framework.
With you can get an agreement another words avoid going over the fiscal cliff.
You're gonna have certainly replace uncertainty and that should unleashed pent up demand particularly in the form of capital spending.
Which is really been on strike during the second half of 2012.
Okay sir limited companies have been making big changes but a lot of companies -- especially those dividend payers have been.
-- -- in those dividends up to their shareholders before the end of -- year.
Does that trend deal like energy and not like it especially since we may have a -- -- Well I think it I think every S&P 500 dividend paying companies should be.
Our pain ahead a quarter or two quarter's worth of 2013.
Earnings today at a I see no justification not to do that.
In order take -- advantage.
Of taxable shareholders this unique opportunity where you know dividend taxes are going up.
Heck I -- -- -- our viewers know we're just showing some -- video we just got -- moments ago from house speaker John -- returning to Capitol -- he didn't make any statements but obviously are gonna monitor that of course for the market that are for our viewers as Bob -- -- bring up a couple of names that you really like -- to get you are sticking with those dividend payers has been so much controversy.
With whether or not we should indeed be staying with dividend names that you really like.

Over the next year but again this is -- your other topic and that dividend space but you're trying our viewers to go ahead and do no matter what.
Well yes and and little bit more economic exposure -- than McDonald's.
-- and if this stock has come down pretty significantly because of the fears of coal.
And the United States getting out -- coal business were knocking get outlook coal business.
All that's a big part of Norfolk Southern's.
They -- they do a lot of other things as well we think this is a good buying opportunity at a very attractive price and above average yield.
