NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - September 9, 2008 - Wayne S. Kaufman, author of the popular daily market newsletter, "The Kaufman Report", and Chief Market Analyst for John Thomas Financial, Inc., a licensed, full-service broker dealer offering client-centric retail brokerage and investment banking services, was a featured guest on CNBC's "Talking Rebound Strategies" with Bob Pisani and Rebecca Jarvis on Friday, September 5, 2008.

Asked during the segment about his perspective on individual sectors during a volatile market, Kaufman was quoted as suggesting this is a "stock pickers market," citing several picks with "tremendous long-term prospects even with a weak market." Reiterating this theme, in the Monday, September 8, 2008, edition of "The Kaufman Report," Kaufman writes, "... this continues to be a bifurcated, opportunistic trader's market, with adept traders able to take advantage long or short, but the primary downtrend must be respected. Investors need to be alert to sector rotation and should not hesitate to move out of lagging sectors and stocks and into leaders."
