Kahneman and Tversky did work on that.

I can confirm this as well.  With the wife out of town I had to grocery shop after work last night and I ended up with beer, stuff to make sandwiches, and ice cream.  The goal was stuff for burgers but that didn't work out.

Taking such a bath on RH. It's become the fucking Twitter of retail.

Didn't read yet but I assume it says because if you're not well on your way to being drunk you sure as hell should be.

On the bright side, it's probably in a fancy faux-vintage tub.

Anyone playing with lithium? Dont know much about the industry but between Tesla and other battery powered IOT devices it seems like a good play.

I can only speak for myself, but I was well on my way last night during my going away party. Didn't invest in anything thankfully.

Well, today certainly fucking sucks.

Oh wow LNKD. So MSFT just said they're buying them, for about $195/share... Stock just shot up nearly 50% premarket from 130 more or less.

Damn. I was playing around with this in the 120-130 range and sold it at 131, and was waiting to buy back in at 120-125. Seemed to have fluctuated around that range... oh well, would've been a very nice upside if I still had it.


Also, I was holding a bit of SWHC, bought at 21.5 a couple of weeks ago and was holding out for 24 but today it just jumped a little and I sold it off quickly at 23.5. Nice 10% turnaround! Now it was a pretty small holding but I'll take that kind of action any day. The reason behind it sucks (fear of gun control coming in becuase of this horrible Florida attack), but money is money.

Bad luck there Master-class, noone could've seen that coming. My buys at 102 and 114 have turned out to be pretty damn sweet. Not to be greedy but I definitely saw upside to the buy-out price, but I cannot be greedy...

It dropped from the 200-230/240 range and I was picking it up around 160-190 until the recent report when it dropped to 100-130 and I just bought and sold as much as I could between 115-130 to lower my cost. I think I made money by the end but have to check the numbers. Assumed it was going to bounce around from 120-130 for a while as it had and never really thought it would ever get back to 175-200, or at least for a long long time... total fluke on this one and it just so happens I wasn't holding when it happened. Oh well.

How do I buy Gold stock for the impending market downturn without have to buy real gold?
post #9704 of 11163
Gold ETF.

I hopped back on the UVXY train at 14.

So 6 months in and we are about flat for the year.  Seems like we had this conversation last year at about the same time.
