Microsoft has proposed to Yahoo, will they accept? If they do, the marriage will probably happen late in 2008, but is it a match made in heaven? Sources say the pre-nuptial agreement has Microsoft offering $31 per share in a combination of 50% cash and 50% stock. Microsoft's best man, Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer, is determined to see these two joined despite Yahoo's refusal of Microsoft's proposal last year.

Proving that Microsoft doesn't intend to take no for an answer, Ballmer wrote that the company "reserves the right to pursue all necessary steps to ensure that Yahoo's shareholders are provided with the opportunity to realize the value inherent in our proposal." Yahoo has yet to ring the wedding bells of acceptance.

Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN) rose in early trading Friday at $16.12, up $0.23 (1.45%) on a trading volume of 952,330, right around the center mark for the 52 week high -- lows of $25.55 and $11.29 respectively.

Arris Group Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) rose $0.31 (3.53%) to $9.10, on volumes of 207,563, about $2.00 higher than the 52 week low of $6.91.

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors. The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 and #2 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast. We need to learn to take advantage of these economic factors. Think of homeland security. Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks -- right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly. Visit to receive two Special Reports -- free when you sign up! Or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

It's also about adding stocks to your portfolio that have little or no effect against the state of the economy. The world as we know it has changed. Gone are the days of tradition and old school values. The entertainment industry is booming with the new technology in flat panel TVs. Take a look at some of the most recent headlines and you'll also see that the movies are setting box office records. Visit under our focus section to receive a free report on this sector.

Another sector we need to be focusing on right now is homeland security -- for obvious reasons of course. Visit under our focus section to receive yet another free report on this sector.
