Personal finance and investing megathread extravaganza

I know lewdog (and maybe others) have mentioned the desire to have a place to chat about personal finance stuff. We'll see if there's enough interest to keep this going in the long-term, but at least for now, here's a place to chat about whatever personal finance topics come up.



If you're just getting started thinking about saving and don't know where to begin, this flow chart can help. Ask for advice in the thread for more help!

I bought $500 at ~50 on April 1st. Not bad almost doubling in a little over a month. But like I said, I'm holding out for $1000 which I think we will easily see.

I got in ETH at $7.50 now $100

I got in PIVX at $0.10 now $1.60

Nem at $0.009 now $.075

LTC at $10 now $27

And, of course, my first love Bitcoin at $700... though I tried to get in back at $7 but it was just too difficult to buy back then. Giving up is one of the bigger regrets of my life lol

You're welcome.
Anyone who felt like they missed the boat on Portola (PTLA) could find a nice jumping in point now. Earnings conf. call yesterday, ramping up for production for an end of June approval for the first of their 2 drugs in clinical trials. I averaged down a wee bit yesterday, picking up another 100 shares at $37.35. Could be looking at $45-$50 per share or higher by the end of June.

I almost bought it last year. My finger was on the button and I decided not to. Oh, well.

My TTWO stock has been on a nice run. I've had that stock for at least a decade and it's been a nice investment.

On the other side of the table, my SSW stock has been killing me. I'm down 50 percent. I keep buying to dollar cost average because I keep reading that it's going to come back, but I'm about at my max for it. I can't figure out if I'm buying a bargain or if I'm on a sinking ship (pun intended). On the positive side, the dividend yield is nice if I keep buying, assuming that the company doesn't disappear beneath the waves.

Dammit rain, I gave you the lead on it. If you had bought 1 million shares you'd have $160 million dollars.

I spent it buying a mid-sized Caribbean island that was pure folly.

Damn brother, I owe you a steak dinner or bottle of champagne or both! Based solely on your post, I started doing research on these and ended up buying 500 shares of Portola at $37.88. Kept averaging down every time it got below my entry point. Ended up with 1000 shares at $37.66. They just got a drug approval about an hour ago and the price skyrocketed. It's around $55 now, I'm up around $18,000 so far, and I'm holding because the other drug they have in clinical trials is even more likely to get approved than the one that got approved today.

Nice work, and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

Are you holding any?

You're welcome. I will probably sell 25% since I purchased a good chunk pretty low and let the rest ride. I think there's more good news to come but there will probably a little volatility until that news comes out. Still surprised there hasn't been any news on andexanet alfa and we are into late Q2
