Criminal probe into VRX -- down 12% AH.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha


....

Panic selling will ensue at the open. I bet we see it tank 20-30%.

Or at least start lowering that average entry price!

Shorted some NVDA at close today. Love the company but man, the rise has been too meteoric and needs to retrace.

Oops.

Full marks for candor, though.

Oh well, it's only up 3.5% AH with a pretty big beat. At least I can rationalize that the high pricing was baked in.

Hmm. Just reached a new all time portfolio high today. This means we'll get a 5% or so market pull back next week.

Been hitting those for about 2 weeks now; very close to hitting another major net worth milestone. Yet, I feel largely indifferent. Funny how the brain works that way.

Net worth is an odd milestone.  Most of ours is tied up in our house but I think at some point next year our portfolio will overtake our house and become greater than 50% of our net worth.

I exclude our house when thinking of my net worth and only think of income producing assets and/or investment.

So, to the though of a pullback as I hit another milestone...yeah, all read today. tongue.gif

I talked my coworker into investing back around Feb / March this year and he put it in a meager amount into a robinhood account just to try it out. I threw him some stock picks I was personally interested in, NVDA being one of them as a play on driverless cars, neural networking / deep machine learning, etc. It was around $31 back then.

He bought NVDA because he liked the balance sheet / fundamentals and story.

He now has a 100% gain on that stock while I weep in the corner because I was too big of a pussy to buy it. Even when it was at $52 I was thinking, "damn, this is priced to perfection; it either will correct soon from some earnings miss or just pull back after this insane run-up."

Nope. Now at $62. He asked me to tell him when I finally buy NVDA so he can short it then tongue.gif

But anyway, back to my coworker -- he's sitting at a 50% overall portfolio gain from just ~5 months of investing. I guess the timing was ripe given that we were at lows around the time, but still. He sees the light and plans to pour more money into the market.
