  • Update: Winners Losers & Realignment [View instapost]
    you and I were on very similar tracks when you wrote this. 2014 did indeed turn out to be something great IF you got out of potstocks about the end of March or so. I mostly did get out in good time.

    I still got a couple lines in the water but not very hopeful about any pot stocks at all right now. You?

    Welp, time to fire up the old Da Vinci Ascent, or maybe the little Irish made Alfa. You know a good 'must have' vape?

  • Ready To Retire? Do It With A Dividend Growth Portfolio [View article]
    good stuff, no doubt.

    one of the problems for many people is that they never seriously get around to saving much of anything.

    and for those who do save, chasing the elusive 'high yields' often loses them the little they have.

    this article makes a lot of sense to whatever [even modest] degree someone may decide to pursue the strategy...

    in a sensible world there will be a good bit of 'profit-taking' today...[or should I call it loss minimization?]

    to the silent: its not much fun when a bad reality finally dawns on us but don't worry, we've all been wrong many times, in my case a great many times. I once believed in PHOT.

    Thanks, Matt. Somewhere out there a guy was just about to take a long position and this article saved him money...and ultimate disappointment.

    To anyone still interested in buying FITX, why not just send your check directly to Big Bill? He'll end up with your money anyway...

    there may indeed appear a 'reversal pattern' but that may just be one of the great many meaningless fluctuation we continue to see in this sector.

    there is no reason to expect any substantial sustained growth in this stock share price. for that to happen the company would actually need to start generating real income and so far that looks a really long way off-- if ever.

    I beg the guy who is just not sure: stay the hell away.

    But as Dennis Miller used to say, "Of course, this is just my opinion, I could be wrong."

  • 96 Marijuana Stocks For Your Do Not 'Buy And Hold' List [View article]
    marinokv-- thanks for sharing your story. There are 1000s of people out there in a similar situation. Given your age and limited resources, I would put what you have left in the bank so you know where it is when you really need it. The hopeful dreams of a year ago are not working out in this sector and should ONLY be indulged in with money you can afford to lose. And it is a well known fact most individual traders do lose money and in MJ stocks its safe to say nearly ALL 'investors' have lost money and will most likely continue to lose more money.

    I would not recommend anyone invest in MJ stocks at all at this point...its true that 'lightening can strike' but it is highly unlikely...

    I've never seen any mj article covering ALL the bases, I guess that would be impossible, but this article says a very great deal indeed and, for their own sake, I hope the overly optimistic 'longs' are paying attention.
