^^ Check out Hess. that is a good oil play as it is trading at a big divergence to brent, possibly the biggest discount to its peers.

I bought at 1.05, sold and made some profit. I bought higher later, am barely up now. My take on the Irish banks (IRE, AIB) is buy as low as possible, hold for a long time. Ireland won't be in crisis mode forever. If these stocks go back up to where they were, you'd make a big return. But there's the chance these banks will fold before this happens.

AGNC is going down.. possibly due to the possible downgrade of America's credit rating? Time to sell?

I'm holding mine...I am reasonably confident that the debt ceiling thing will get worked out. I know that politicians are morons about this stuff, but when things *have* to happen...they usually do.

Crazy dip this morning though....people are edgy but that price dump was probably a single big holder trying to dump shares.

It'll be mostly in the red until the next bond purchasing program starts and the debt ceiling is lifted. Well assuming they can keep inflating this bubble with quantitative easing. Eventually the fundamentals will deteriorate so much it'll pop and we'll be back in panic mode and a flash crash. With the market mostly HFT, with an average stock hold of 23 seconds, we're setting up for the next crash. I wouldn't buy now, everything is overpriced.

I'm a conspiracy nut, and even this sounds like a little much to me. Any links with stats on the HFT?

Just checked my portfolio. +3.98% for AGNC! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Still -2.47% compared to when I bought it, but I'm optimistic.

did you buy it before the last dividend was cut? because if so, you are still up. Most things list returns excluding dividends...but when you have really high yields, the dividend/no-dividend split gets big really fast.

After; I bought it about a month ago and I haven't received any dividend payment.

A crappy penny stock that I hold (BSRC) did a 30:1 reverse split.

My brokerage correctly moved my data to the temporary split listing and adjusted the price....but they failed to correctly apply the split.

Until they fix it...it looks like I made over a 2000% return in one day smile.gifsmile.gif

Wow look at the bloodbath today. IMO....suckers selloff before QE3

I'm keeping my stocks, and my silver....for better or worse.
