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!

Today was a good day to own PMD. I bought it a couple of years ago and it immediately lost 20% and stayed there. But today's gain of 31.39% is the largest single-day increase I've ever had in a stock. I'm now in the black on it for the first time ever.

Finally yesterday I had made up my mind I wasn't waiting any longer because I found a real winner I wanted to move that money into so I SOLD. TODAY that company announced a million dollar contract with the US military and the stock moved up 35 %. That's exactly the ****ing news I had been waiting on for the last year. If I had just waited one more ****ing day !
I threw $3000 back at it right after and it's currently up to about $7000. I'm on pins and needles because I'm afraid the investors are going to take their profits and crash it. I still think this company has long term success, they are making bullet proof vests out of spider silk. They genetically crossed the Golden Orb spider with silk worms and the product is stronger than Kevlar or steel. They just opened up production in Vietnam and opened a facility in Indiana to increase production.

I'd take the profits out of that and keep the original $3k only in there to grow. Invest the $4k you made in something less risky or sit in cash for a good time to buy. But that's just me.

I know , I know. That would be the right thing to do ! And in the back of my mind there's this little devil telling me it could go to $10 and you'll be rich. And I think this company really has a future.

Just play with the house's money, bro. I did something similar with that NVDA stock you were asking about. I got into it when it went down to ~30. Sold half at ~56, despite the company's significant upside. The old saying is that pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered.

In one of my accounts, I set a policy that I would buy a stock, and then when it went up 20% I would sell off the original money, keep the profit in it, and then use the original money to buy another stock. My theory is that I can take advantage of random variations in prices to increase my return, and in the long term I'm building my zero-fee mutual fund.

Lots of smarts in this thread!

It lessens your risk while maintaining your profits, while still being able to profit from that company should it continue to rise. It's a risky sector though, which is why I would maintain a success where I doubled my profits.

Nice job by the way!

My dad and I were kicking around a similar idea. Just cash out after a good pop and leave the remainder in the stock to build a diversified portfolio over time.

I've been doing it for quite a while in one account, but eventually switched to a different strategy. I think I was matching the market but not beating it. I adopted it for a new account and it's been doing quite well.

All in all, I like doing it because you minimize risk, keep some skin in the game if you happen to identify a stock rocket, and you don't get fleeced by mutual fund fees.

I think one of the major upsides is that you end up with a portfolio of companies you have researched and actually like/liked at one point or another.
