New guys

February 29, 2008 – Comments (6)

Even though I'm a really young investor in the grand scheme of things, it still really bugs me when somebody who joined CAPS two months after I did has a higher score than I do.

1000 Points

February 28, 2008 – Comments (4)

I closed over 1000 points today for the first time, mainly on the strength of my mining stocks rising 10-20% far sooner than I was expecting (or hoping, for that matter, as I was considering them for real $).  [more]

Bear market pickins

February 28, 2008 – Comments (0)

If I tell you that I'm expecting a bad bear market over the next couple of years, you may think that I'm telling you to start red-thumbing stocks. Quite the contrary, if you have good ideas for companies that will maintain or increase their value over the next couple of years, a bear market will make those stocks phenomenal green picks.  [more]

Green-thumbing all one-star pharmas apparently worked out just fine. Thank you, Bayer.

A comment on TDRH's latest blog post (actually aimed at the other comments)

February 05, 2008 – Comments (9)

It wasn't until I read the Ron Paul supporter rants that I realized just how opposed to free market economic policy libertarians are. I always thought they were for letting the economy be, but now it's all about how evil corporations are, and how we're going to lose to other economies because of the trade deficit, blah, blah, blah.  [more]

Is this the big one?

February 04, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: SPF , MHO

I'm really getting hammered on my subprime/housing short calls on CAPS. Is this the big recovery?   [more]
