    • sethlemay: 1. Never chase a stock after it has already achieved large gains quickly. Don't chase. 2. See #1....

    • sethlemay: Also a sub-note that has worked for me. Trade only 4 or 5 stocks at a time, and keep half of your portfolio in cash.

    • Grand Nagus Kelly: Noticed that. Whenever I'm close to 100% invested I lose. Greed makes for rash decisions I guess.

    • Xvansan: Wow how the heck did you find all those winners? I'd be happy to break even this year at this point ha

    • sethlemay: This was over the course of 2 1/3 months. Some where just buying at extreme lows before earnings like $YUME and $SQNM.

    • sethlemay: $ELTK I got lucky and sold first thing in the morning after earnings. $AMBS-OLD and $CYNA thanks to Jason Napodano

    • sethlemay: $PCYC was due to the behavior economist pointing out that it was a $140 dollar stock when it was $100, $SING was a momentum penny stock.

    • sethlemay: and of course $PHOT. Hard to lose on pot stocks right now.

    • sethlemay: My losers and poorly timed trades were $PVCT $PLUG $TNXP and $WYY. While TNXP and WYY are good stocks I just mistimed them.

    • DaveMoo: $PLUG, stay long.

    • D-struction: Watched this one undulate too much. Seems like it's the same path of the nat gas engine: $WPRT, $CLNE, $FSYS, etc. Ridiculous.
