No proof required. Two numbers are recommended.
% of gain and number of shares.
I've averaged about 15000 shares from Nov 2008. I got in at $3.33 but churned alot. I coulda had $500K but wound up with $300 gross, for a profit of "only" $250K from flipping covered calls, a huge price to pay for 8 hours sleep.
11X raw score, 5X actual net. Ballpark.
Lotta 1/4M'aires out there since the debacle of 2008.
Let's see us do the next 1/4. It isn't as easy as it was, but no less assured.
We got about three years of ease before the Fed squeeze provided Ben's philosophy. more involved with defaltion and jobs than inflation holds.
I never traded or held more than 6,000 shares until about 2 months ago, but I just sold those extra shares. I trade just about every commodity and future out there, except animals. I give much of my profits to the caring of children and animals. I am not into material things, except my wheels.
You give much of your profit to the caring of animals, huh? Hmmmmmm...............
Woof. WOOOF! (pant pant pant) ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....
(haeh, haeh, haef, slurp slup smack....)
Arr Arr Arr OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
I have also given a lot of money to friends. A lot of money. Also some to older people with medical problems. I have done very well with my investments from sizable income from employment over the years, but wish to leave it there. If you get rich, remember to help good people.
newscentral...Very kind of you.I like most animals and some kids. I don't trade animals either.
This has been an incredible run; up 10k in two days.
Before I give it away,I'd like to feather the nest a little more.
Rang the register for better than $400,000 profit to date...and a click away to bring in an add'l $600,000 profit
Sitting on 46,500 shs

Wow! Don't forget to double down with physical and stock up on whatever you'll need for the next 20 years as the dollar disappears literally from the landscape.
Things will be worth more than paper and barter will rule the land, since people will trade houses rather than demoralize themselves trading colonials for groceries.
GLTY! and let me know if you sell covered calls against your stash, since 45000 shares would next you an instant $6.65 per share now--to buy more close in covered calls at 35 due at $2.30--that's the power of 135000 shares--all with somebody elses's $$$
Lol..too funny, I posted my other post before reading this one.
All in profit taken 1400%. I might jump off a bridge if I calculate what I could have made v what I did made. For a very long time, there was an amount I didn't touch, I just had it invested in SLW. And, when I did trade I only traded 30% of the total amount in the beginning. In this last year I traded the *&^%$ out of it.
