    Yup, a lot of excitement yesterday without a lot of substance to it. I'm actually in the green on the portfolio I was buying for last couple weeks, and the others recovered nicely but not all the way. Took the opportunity to shuffle my last remaining bonds into stocks in order to eek out a little bit more yield.

    I still see buys, so I don't think it'll get slaughtered, but there is likely a bit of a pullback again. Too much bad news about the economy and China's economy to bring us back to 16500 in my opinion.

    Almost even with TWTR again. FB is knocking it out, its hitting all time highs every 2 minutes. I'm up 27% on TSLA in 3 weeks. I think I got thru earnings unscathed save for MA which got hammered pretty good. I made it thru this correction ok, I like my picks... I still have strong bias towards biotech and banks, its working so far.

    I love some of the stock market discussions in my office from non-financial minded people. I never interject unless someone is blatantly making things up for the sake of talking.

    As for this little correction, the wife finally funded her 2013 Roth and we are maxing 2014 soon. Her employer is going to start matching 401(k) vesting immediately so I was happy to hear that. Other than that just plugging more money away.

    Oh and someone mentioned FOREX investing previously, I am scared of that area of investing.

    Palo Alto networks on a tear lately, though the trial stuff is still ongoing. Probably gonna hedge with options but it's been a solid winner for me past few months

    Don't have it but like the stock if they can monetize their data better, lot's of data from users that would be helpful for HR or maybe companies wanting to analyze workers? Not too sure how that would work out but feel that possibly more valuable than it's standard networking features in long run

    I bought LNKD in its first few days of trading and sold it. Never touched it since.

    Your gaming app is not worthy of an IPO...ask ZNGA how that's going.

    My superstar GD is up over 60% from when I bought it at $66.22 (now it's up over $106).

    Anybody else holding any superstars?
