Kenneth Heebner of Capital Growth Management and Robert Doll of BlackRock share their reactions to the Federal Reserve's economic assessment and its decision to leave rates unchanged.
Heebner could not conceal excitement in this interview. For him, all stars and planets are lined up for the stock market to rally: double dip concerns are behind us, Fed has been very accommodating with QE2 and today with continued interest rate, US Senator has passed the bill extending Bush tax cut…
In particular, he sees the auto industry picking up the pent-up demand as the economy recovers. GuruFocus tracks Heebner and here are the stocks he bought the most in 3Q10:
