    Tips for investing in ONVO (or any other early-stage stock)

    There is quite a bit of ink spent here grousing about how SA articles are moving the stock. Could this just be the way that it is in the new social media world where anyone can voice their opinion (or attempt to move things to their advantage)? If so then complaining instead of learning to adapt may just be a waste of ink.

    Please comment here with what you have learned "to do" or "not to do" when investing early stage. For instance:
    • Expect that when an early-stage stock has had a number of spikes in the past ... like this one ... that it is likely to again unlike a more actively traded stock. QED, pick your entry points well.
    • Since dramatic price movements are a matter of course, wouldn't sell stop orders be useful?
    • Don't expect typical technical analysis (chart patterns, etc.) to be of great use since less activity leads to more erratic price behavior (less reliable prices)
    • Sign up for the company's news releases ... they have quick and dramatic impact at times
    • Don't put much faith in other people analysis (like SA articles) since in the early stage many movements are not based on rationale behavior and ... surprise ... someone may be trying to help themselves out not matter how good their logic is.

    ... your thoughts?

    Long-Term Sentiment Disclosure: Buy low, sell high ... not novel I know; but it can still get the job done.
