    MF moment of clarity

    "There are many methods of investing in the stock market.  My favorite is the method known as "buy and hold."  The buy and hold method looks like this:

    look for solid companies poised for long-term growth
    buy into those companies (thinking five years or so ahead)
    hold those companies to realize steady returns on your investment
    Your company will not be immune to swings in stock price.  And you must be tough to weather some storms you may encounter.  But the general long-term trend should be up for shares of a healthy company."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • That sounds nice if you are close to your company and are sophisticated enough to buy and hold. The best investors consistently have sell disciplines to avoid major losses of capital. Buy and hold on developmental very small cap names like THLD is ok as long as you are not betting the world on speculative plays or making it apposition that will change your investment outlook.
      I like THLD a great deal and have owned names in the sector forever (AMGN was mt first holding in the sector in '95). I am just saying one should fall in love with a woman or a guy as opposed to a stock.

    • You forgot the part about "publish the blog opinion piece to drive down the price so I can cover the short position and buy more cheap shares".
