Talking stocks, trading, and investing in general - Page 11

Nice move on those oil stocks; I'm sure you saw some nice returns. I'm actually pretty new to investing (only a couple years out of college) so I don't have too much in yet. Right now I have most of my money in stable bond funds just to pick up steady dividends until I find something else I want to put it in. I need to learn some more macro stuff before I decide what to do... Lots of people talking about another bubble right now.

Thanks, worked out well and now they're returning to normalized pricing, so I may do more buying once it shakes off a few more %.

Hitachi, but not just yet.

I know it's not a 'hot penny stock' but this one might get interesting.

Thinking of getting into Yahoo (YHOO) if it his $15. Thoughts?

I dont think very highly of Techs, especially ones with very high competition like Yahoo, I use google and I think google is much much more innovative.

Hope you got out. The bits and pieces are being vacuumed up.

Mini flash crash going on this morning. This may provide a good entry point as I think next week stocks should recover.

I'm going to hang out, the BP thing took a while to sink in, I think this could be similar. BP started in april, reached its lows in july and the market didnt fully recover until october, about 6 months from start to finish, so if anything I kinda doubt that it goes away in a week, I think i'll start looking at buying around Dow 11,300, the BP crisis sheared 1500 points off the dow from april til july, this may be similar or more since we're at a higher level and stocks arent as depressed as they were considered in early 2010.

I saw this shoot above $5 and I have to ask why? If they get into bed with T-Mobile you have the distant number 3 phone company getting together with the more distant 4 phone company. Hmmm.

Managing three network technologies (GSM, CDMA, IDEN) would be a tremendous burden on their balance sheet. We already witnessed the mess when S took on the IDEN network - I cannot imagine them cozying up to the GSM network now. This is on top of the loads of cash that Clearwire is burning through. Lose lose situation.

You guys thought about buying 'anti-radiation' stocks? Search Aeolus Pharma (AEOL-10150) for example (CBLI, OSIR too..).. :P

Yeah, I'm still in the black but might just pull out for a while instead of riding this roller coaster.
