COST was removed from the Conviction Buy list, according to Goldman Sachs. Valuation call, based on a $148 price target. 
We may be shifting to a "sell the rally mode" vs. "buy the dips."

There are some stocks you should buy.
Still, it's a good time to review what's happening, so we never forget.
To stay long, you need an extremely long investment horizon.
Some offbeat views on the selloff.
