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!

Anybody have a thought on (ALNA) ? A new PT came out today at $36

It's currently at $4.80

I found it a few weeks ago looking for biotech/pharmacuetical companies that are potential buyouts.

Right now, I am selling to a relatively unsophisticated buyer. His business is balls out so he just wants to buy without any hassle. I've lowered my price some, but I'm pocketing a huge spread right now on about 3 rail cars per month (~300 NT's). He's happy, I'm happy - a great marriage

Remember when I told you long ago that it would be forever until it even sniffed $30 again?

Yeah, that still pertains.

LOl. I think it was at .02 at the time. Today its at .44

I bought and sold it several times but missed the big payday.

I'm too impatient and it's cost me millions.

Might be an opportunity to grab some CGC on a dip today if you're sharp. CEO fired.

I'm batting a thousand.

Etrade has been a shit in my pants so far. Every single stock I've purchased so far is down between 30 and 58%.

Good times.

Yeah, medical device/equipment is a nice segment. Make tons of money and aren't targets of politicians like PBM's, pharma, etc. IHI is a good index, you can look through the holdings for other opportunities. ISRG is one of the holdings and I think you've mentioned it in the past or someone did. Just holding that index has returned about 30% a year the last 5. XHE is another
