    • John Rayhall: LINE good for your IRA it's an MLP I believe.

    • DAG Investments: its actually a LLC, but from what i can tell, it acts similar to an MLP for tax purposes. not sure if that means all the same tax headaches

    • Bob de'Long: No point in putting special tax investments in an IRA.

    • DAG Investments: how've your trades been doing? i'm getting beat up on some of my speculatives like NOK, MEG & SSN but core stocks are holding up pretty well

    • John Rayhall: I've been beat up a little but still holding tight. sold most of my spec biotechs expect for CLDX and IMUC. Hold big positions in KORS, KATE

    • John Rayhall: and BAC right now.

    • John Rayhall: Ya you think not for your IRA Bob? that way you don't have to deal with the tax headache?

    • DAG Investments: agree CLDX & IMUC are good. i wanted CLDX but missed my limit price a while back. im in ATRS, CLSN, VICL, PBTH & a couple we won't talk about

    • DAG Investments: those are just my biotech speculatives... the others that have been making me $ lately are FCEL, BLDP, HIMX & CHC
      4/11/12
    • DAG Investments: i'm not buying any more speculatives for a while... maybe until/unless a couple of the losers recover... if i dont decide to cut losses soon
      4/11/12
    • John Rayhall: Oh ya I did CLSN for a small profit may look to reneter. May be a bit of a dicey market for too much spec see how it unfolds. ATRS had a

    • John Rayhall: nie jump! I want to get into FCEL at some point but don't want to pay too high
      4/11/12
    • DAG Investments: my FCEL average is .90 but i don't think it'll go back there any time soon. down now from dilution priced 1.50 so here may be good entry.
      4/11/12
    • DAG Investments: i've got ATRS from just under $2. not selling til $12 or so lol
      4/11/12
    • DAG Investments: in fact, i'll probably buy more at $4... i like it a lot
      4/11/12
    • DAG Investments: i'm at $2 on CLSN too so i'm a little down now but i'm holding out for $6 or so
      4/11/12
    • John Rayhall: Ok thanks I will look at FCEL right here :) WTF is going on with CLDX hammered daily? Haha $12 I hope you get it. I like CLSN as well that's

    • John Rayhall: more of a 2013 play.
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: yes, 2013... i try to stagger speculative return/loss timelines. CLDX might be because of this: http://bit.ly/HDZIXC
      4/12/12
    • John Rayhall: Nice catch I didn't see that. I still think CLDX has blockbuster potential but this is getting ugly lol.
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: i agree blockbuster potential... i just can't buy any new speculatives right now... just add to some existing ones
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: only problem with these high-risk speculatives is they can get beat down in 1-2 days, but take weeks or months to get back where they were
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: FCEL is +7% today alone so might be good to buy soon if u plan to. i was +108% before dilution & correction, but decided to go for broke
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: might look at BLDP too... if i remember correctly, they're actually closer to profitability than FCEL and also aren't as prone to dilution
      4/12/12
    • John Rayhall: Oh ya I know about BLDP I am waiting for one of my specs to hit. Actually look at JOEZ that spec of mine had good earnings
      4/12/12
    • John Rayhall: CLDX may go to 10 one day but right now getting hammered. FCEL I like just need to free up some money.
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: wow JOEZ up 22% in after hours... congrats!
      4/12/12
    • DAG Investments: i hear ya about waiting for 'one day'... why i'm not buying anymore specs right now... opportunity costs of having the money tied up
      4/12/12
    • John Rayhall: Too many spec is def not good you're lucky of 1 out fo 5 of them hit. Thanks I think JOEZ easily goes over 2 maybe even to 3 this year.
