    PCYC crushed earnings. New all time highs. I'm killing it with this position. So glad I've hung in.

    I fear holding single pharma stocks. Everyone in here has seemed to have good luck with them but 1 bad FDA report and you could lose your shirt on the position. We have our next big investment lined up for the next pull back. I assume something international will happen that will result in the market getting freaked out and I will pounce.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    If you balance these out with more conservative plays, it should be fine.

    TSLA... WTF!

    I'm fucking JEALOUS at this point.

    Just a month ago, my project manager and I were talking about how he should get rid of his shares at $170. Now the fucking stock is at $240?!?!?!?!

    Random biotechs are booming today. Anyone have one of theirs jump?

    As for TSLA...I am amazed it just keeps jumping for a car that sells to a higher end segment. Seems to be acting more along the lines of a tech stock than a car stock.

    I'm so fucking sick of my AAPL stock. I've held it for 1.5 years at this point and want to get fucking rid of it. I wish it traded at AMZN's P/E ratio :nodding:.

    I feel the same way about netflix.

    I just have to keep reminding myself that 2-3X your money is still a pretty damn good deal (but not as good as 5X :fu:)

    I don't... and it looks like money is shifting away from my other biotechs.

    Which ones are popping?



    I'm up 61% on TSLA in less than 2 months. Wowza. I wish I bought more.
