I didn't say he should listen to Internet randoms where you read ? I actually advised not to, Majority get commission based which is why I said so.

An example is seeking alpha. If you think FT and WSJ are better than keep on investing on "real time news" and not "entertainment". By time WSJ FT and Bloomberg post they are long gone.

Well, I was really just kidding, not seriously disagreeing with you.
But the fact that we all offer random advice here sort of presupposes that somebody might listen to us . . .

Just curious: are you citing Seeking Alpha as a source of real time news, or as an example of folks getting paid to offer supposed expertise?

 Seeking alpha is mostly entertainment.

Solid sources are reuters eikon and markit.

Hey! My advice is not random and very consistent.

True, but it's also boring. If we all followed your strategy we'd have nothing to talk about in this thread other than how we're steadily growing incrementally richer. Where's the fun in that?

You raise a very valid point.

I think most of SF invests in cameras to take pictures of themselves in unnatural poses and a computer + internet connection to post those pictures. That market might not have been fully tapped though.

I bought some GEM today, which goes against my individual investing thing.

Thanks for all the advice guys! I really appreciate it. Now... Do you guys reccomend me reading books to learn how to invest and all that?

Haven't done much trading recently. Bought into DAL on Friday morning to add to my AAL and UAL holdings (both down like 10-12% currently). I'm hoping for 20-30% upside on these and willing to wait 6 months or something to see it. Let's see I guess.

Nah, just hone your intuition.

Who is still in VRX?  I know some of you tried to buy down on that Hindenburg.  

 

Opened up a 529 plan for the little guy last night after finally getting his SSN.  I went with an age based plan instead of straight S&P 500 so I can just add to it without having to worry about asset allocation.  After reading up on opening a 529 plan vs. adding to my own retirement vehicles which principal can be taken out without penalty, our incomes will still be high for any income based scholarships or whatever.

(my) airlines are coming back up today, hopefully they keep going

Bought some SWHC yesterday at 21.5 and another buy order at 20 if it hits there. Not a business/industry I'm much interested in or knowledgeable about but it seems to move around enough to make money along the range.

Yeah, my non-expert conclusion is that if your plan is to set aside enough money over time to fully fund the tot's education, the choice of vehicle loses some of its significance (since the extent to which assets count for financial aid eligibility becomes irrelevant). And not that you don't get this, but opening a 529 vs. earmarking some money in your own retirement accounts for college isn't a primary choice. My own view is that there's some benefit to spreading eggs among baskets (depending on one's particular circumstances, of course) to create some flexibility to adjust to changed circumstances, changed tax laws/rates, whatever.
