    I don't think it was luck.

  • The New Nokia Has At Least A 20% Upside Potential [View article]
    Did you put all your capital in one basket, i.e., stocks? I split my capital and put half into stocks and kept half liquid. The stock side soared while the safe side, remained, well safe. I did not make much money on the safe side with my savings and CDs. And what made it worse is that I kept selling stocks to buy others because I did not want to RISK any more capital. Risk aversion is also key. That is not the whole story: I have a solid 401K that I install 1K into every month. I have a TRS which is retirement for teachers. I have a home that has increased 155% in value since I bought it.

    I have not risked any monies that I need in the immediate future.

    we loosen our capital when we buy shares :) but we lose capital when we sell short. I've done both.

  • Twitter IPO Impact - Price To Users Defined [View article]
    Oh, and did you note how many fewer shares of this stock are available? That's my metric. You can't own what is not for sale.

  • Meeting In The Middle Market: The Symbiotic Future Of Tesla And Car Charging Group [View article]
    My two cents: the local Kroger's has installed an EV charging station. Garages are not as important as outdoor plugs. I have a garage I made into a studio. It is electrified but I don't put my car in it. However I do have outlets on the outside of the house and I can use one of those just fine if and when I get a Tesla down-the-line model. I am bullish on Tesla...take note.

  • Report: AMR and U.S. Airways have settled with DOJ [View news story]
    OMG that stock has rocketed to 12.30 today. I was told to cease and desist trading it, or I'd be rich right now. Will add to it later.

  • Twitter IPO Impact - Price To Users Defined [View article]
    Your article reminds me of the wisdom of the crowd. That means that their valuation and literally take is closest to the proper explanation. I have my own crystal ball that Twitter despite what we Matter Horns think will soar.

    If it is anything like other tech giants you have to hold it before it grows exponentially. That's what I did not do before.

    I would also say that Occam's razor comes to mind: that the simplest explanation is probably the best one. I like your metrics. I am old enough to tout the fact that I bought into that early tech bubble, moved to Texas and sold all my shares in 1995 before I left Chicago. If I had not I would have lost money. Instead the small starter of 1K grew to 5K in one year.

    I mean ask yourself...do you think Buffett has bought stocks wherein he lost money? Of course he has. But he has made more than lost.

  • Tesla Results: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly And Some New Predictions [View article]
    I also put in a limit order for 75 because it might hit that low. If it don't I'll wait. Gotta get my historic home painted first.

    I ordered the sell off (in my mind) because I wanted to get in at 155! It hit 155 last night and dropped to 150. I got a couple of shares to hold. At least I did not pay full price! I am going to add a little at a time like I did with NOK.

  • TwitterMania #Bubble [View article]
    Was that true when they launched their IPO? I think the floor was 80 ps and it never looked back.

    Why was this not true when GOOG launched, which I clearly recall. I wanted to get in the ground floor and missed it. Now, I would be rich. So bubble is as bubble does.

  • Tesla Motors down over 10% after Q3 report [View news story]
    My yoga instructor drove a Tesla to class and I saw it in the parking lot. I also saw a Karma EV driving in front of me the next day. If you have not seen or driven a Tesla you should. It is more than gorgeous to look at. Both cars were white and quite handsome as cars go.
