Ya, I've had a huge year so far. I think the key was I avoided most of the turmoil in '08 minus 2 dogs + bought C too early. I had cash in place to time my major buys in Nov and Dec where I went heavily into banks (BAC, CS, UBS, USB, WFC, STD, LYG, BBVA, CRZBY, SCGLY, RBS, MS) as well as some broader market plays. Took some profits and am in the process of putting some of the gains into non-cyclicals and GLD. With some recent profits I also bought some heavily speculative plays which sure panned out today. KERX finished up 34% and I dont think its finished running. Also, check out ZGNX... no needle migraine medication that works in 12 mins for most takers. Speculation of breakout earnings on the new drug. Earnings on Mar 8. Hey slo, what are your thoughts on ACTC's reverse split?
