I had roughly $5,000 in my Scottrade account about 2 weeks ago. i have $1,600 sitting on the side lines waiting to buy in. Should I buy some CROX and AAPL today or wait for more pain to ensue? Crox is down 9% today, and AAPL 6.5%. what the hell do i do. im down $200 today. i've dropped about $800 from 2 weeks ago.
When do i buy?
AAPL- 7 shares @141.83
CROX-20 shares @ 48.25
CROX 12 shares @ 54
JSDA- 32 shares @ 15.25
anybody else down this much in the past few weeks or am I the only one. I almost want to cry, $800 is nearly everything I've packed away this summer from working and now its all gone.
Don't worry. I have been investing for 2 years. I have lost about 50% combined. I would have made all of it back had i waited for the stock to play itself out(example HANS). The lesson is to buy something with confidence and hold on through the rough periods. I have seen internet stocks dropped 95% before, but it was a dotcom stock. You are investing in something that has a product, growth potential and have good track record (Jones has seen 30+ 4 months ago - whatever took it there will take it there again. I am not fantasizing about Jones soda making my money back, but I would rather have it when it does, than cry about the fact that you got rid of it prematurely.
id like to not hav to work all day like you do. i would like to do something with my life and become something other than some 30 year old dick head who sits on a computer all day picking fights with 15 year olds. and, the shit im holding on to, well that would be aapl and crox. aapl just released an iPhone, iMAC, and will be coming out with a new ipod pretty soon, in case you didnt know. CROX is the maker of that ugly shoe that everyone says to short. my dad has made 110% gain with that stock. im currently down looking to buy more. they hav new products coming out this school season and are acquiring companies. they are also going global. now what do you own again. i understand ur up 1.5% but with what stocks.
Whine whine whine...
JSDA is down because their earnings for two quarters have been shit, and investors lost interest, sell sell sell.
The other shit your holding on to? Who knows.
You'd like to be a millionaire? Get a fucking job and quit sitting on your ass playing games on the internet.
House payment? bleh...
"Interest rate thing"...bleh...
Go buy some mutual funds, or 90 day CD's...
My portfolio? I'm up 1.5% on the week...which isn't bad for what is going in the greater market...
