Submit the stock name or symbol you want to buy when or if the government shuts down and the market crashes!!
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime for many on this board. It most likely will not happen again in my opinion.
I want to buy FB, Groupon, Dot Hill, LXRX, Siri, Nok,(you know if I sell), ALU, PBRA, FBR, BRFS, and more. I will be composing my list today. Hmm...how about Telsa?
I've been long NOK and ALU since Jan. But in the meantime I play with volatility on INO and PLUG (I know very different plays). PLUG seems hotter right now, as it seems to be starting a run towards $1 to remain listed. I'm up 15% in one week.
I have done quite well recent years. I do not own many stocks. I only concentrate on a few manes. My two largest holdings are ACAS and NOK. I have owned ACAS since 2009. Last year, I bought one stock only, that was NOK, starting on July 23 at $1.699. I added a few lots through the middle of November. I am very happy that since I rarely trade my stocks, my gains are almost all long-term capital gins, which reduces my tax payment. This year, I have bought only two more stocks for my non-retirement account. One is QCOR, in April, bought just below $30. The other is RMTI, first bought in July at $5.00 and then in August at $6.06. Both have appreciated significantly, yet, both have far greater potential to go way up. Check them out and you will love them. In the case of QCOR, it dropped significantly recently, providing a great buying entry point.
Sorry. I did not realize this thread is related to Gov shut down. I cannot predict how my stocks will response. I will sit through this event. If my stocks tank because of this event, I will try to find some money and buy more. But I do not have a lot of dry powder now.
