Nice!

Paired down on a few oil stocks I've had since before BP (and re bought during BP), sad to see them go, but i feel this thing might be pretty out there price wise. I've kept about half my position in case I'm wrong in ether direction, lol.

someone likes it! I think its a high risk play, but I've met quite a few people who like the options that they provide for phones and service. The underlying question for me is always that there is actually a consumer behind the stock and if they have pricing power. Not sure that sprint has great pricing power but the industry as a whole seems to lack pricing power.

Compare with oil and cigarettes which certainly have pricing power.

I would definitely consider sprint if I were not paying for a line tacked on to a family plan on at&t

Especially back when you could get in on a good SERO plan it was a no-brainer (although I don't know that my desire to get in to sprint with a dirt cheap semi-fraudulent rate plan actually bodes well for their stock...)

Look for a stock that pays a dividend then invest in that stock.

I prefer larger brokerage houses and places like Vanguard which offer excellent research and once you have over 1M they basically allow you to trade for free. Whats also nice is that you can buy large blocks of shares without a hitch, no commission on them.

Buy any of the following: VIG, DLN, DVY, SDY, DTD, DLN, PFM, etc PS: Seriously, this is probably the stupidest place on the internet to get investing advice. Find an investing forum and post your questions there.

Not a lot of "ideas" coming out of this club, however my call looking to short NFLX at post 2 is looking brilliant.

I like WFC for the long haul, bought some last week at $31ish. Hoping to buy more where I sold it in Oct 2009 (about $28.50). It didn't do much last year, but Buffett is really hot on this stock as usual and I'm excited to see that they will be paying out a dividend (one that is worthwhile) again in the next coming quarters.

Lost it big on XPRT...

Was hoping for some different news before the details of the strategic alternatives came out (I am in the industry and couldn't accept their valuation...didn't expect the end result to be the company being broken into pieces).

At this point it isn't worth selling and I am gonna hold on just in case.

Sure it is, b/c if it goes to .07c, you just lost half your money (again)
Amateur mistake.
At least use your XPRT loss to offset other cap gains for 2011.
