Individual stocks I have:
AAPL
RCL
CRM
JPM
NKE
UAL
DIS

I bought all these (except CRM) when the market tanked in March/April.

I put a little bit into ETFs/bonds every month with Betterment though.

I invested for the first time earlier this summer but I don't really pay attention to it. Some stock + mutual funds

Thanks for this man... I bought in at $0.24. It got as high as $0.90 and I see that the high is at $3.09. I'm going to hold and sell when it gets around $1.50-$2.00 range. But for real... this was an excellent call and I commend you sir.

I was looking at NIO when it dipped to around $40. I hear it's the Chinese Tesla, but how safe do you feel vested in the company? I only say this because I bought Luckin, the Chinese Starbucks, and that stock got delisted in a manner of weeks.

Regardless of how I feel about it, I spend a looooooot of money at Amazon. By far the most of any company. I feel like I should have a piece.

Robinhood and M1 let you buy fractional shares.

Bought a little bit of BP today while they’re in the toilet. It will be a loooooong play as they figure out how to go to renewables.

The Rev has a thread on this already.

I invest in a M1 Berkshire Hathaway fund that has Apple, Coke, BofA and a bunch of other stuff and an Aggressive 2035 retirement fund.

Also own Tesla.

I invest twice a month but I need to throw more at it.

I got burned on that back in the summer.

I bought in at 55 on a Thursday, then on the following Monday the premarket price was...88. I thought to myself "do I let it rock or do I move and make a profit." I held on. Market opened, price moved to 94 then it tanked. Thankfully I had a stop loss in place but I still managed to lose a few.

MRNA is tricky.

some shit like "the tri delta lambda flying eagle china cup"

see it leverages daily volume and creates a counter spread on calls so when the market inverts the catalytic conversion of onomonapia plasticizes the upside my brotha.

put about 6% of every paycheck to company stocks and get an extra little something back every quarter. and FIS stock just keeps going up. it's pretty great. i will occasionally dip into others. made some money off AMD last year when ryzen was washing intel CPUs but dumped when the nvidia 3000 series cards were announced. probably should have held on a little longer. could have been in on AMD like 6 years ago when they were under $10/share (now at $80+!) and am constantly kicking myself for not going in back then. holding on to abbot labs (ABT) and walgreens (WBA) for the moment but unsure how vaccine release will affect these

i really want to get into rare earth materials stocks but i don't know where to start. also looking for companies that will be producing materials for making foldable screens but also at a loss on how to find them

depending on your company's policy on selling company stocks (i can't sell shares until one year after they were purchased) your portfolio could be viewed as a limited-access savings account that has a huge return every x months or whenever the matching funds kick in. it's free money if you plan on gaming the system a little by dumping the shares as soon as you're able to

I have some boring ones and some exciting ones and some in between

bought TSLA before the split...

Vanguard Growth Index Mutual Fund that gets fed every week

building up cash to get another fund (most likely the Vanguard Real Estate Fund)

and for some strange reason I have some IBM stocks in my Vanguard account

I like Vanguard


I also have the bird app.. (RH)
brought Apple before the split..
i have some berkshire... B stock (i might sell and get something else)

I have other stock (intel, amd, and some other ones i can't think of)

I've been aiming for stocks that give out dividends... so i can reinvest that shit



oh and I have a 401k type account from the job that does matching..

26. "BRK.B is supposed to be bought and never sold. "
In response to Reply # 20


  

          

buffet himself considers ownership of BRK A or B to be a curious thing you just own. No dividends are ever paid. Its supposed to be a stable loooooooooong term item that may grow incrementally.

Crazy to think BRK.A is 344K but its been growing since the 60s. it was 71k in 1990. 1000 invested at IPO would be worth 26.5m.

24. "I became overwhelmed with trying to learn everything."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i made a few bucks off some dumb luck smart plays.

there are so many ways to go about it. Once I learned some 101 level things, I kept learning then I realized how much more I don't know and that the real money making takes a level of commitment I don't have.

I read the Warren Buffet bio and learned what it takes to make big boy moves and I knew it wasnt for me. On a level of making substantial gains it takes a lot of work. Dude spends his waking hours just reading through every nook and cranny to find advantages hidden in plain sight.

the only rules I play by are value driven moves. no options or schemes.

However, were I on my job I would consider reading up some things, like the dry boring shit which lays a foundation.

Security Analysis, by Benjamin Graham & David Dodd https://www.amazon.com/Security-Analysis-Foreword-Buffett-Editions/dp/0071592539


The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing. A Book of Practical Counsel

I found Martin Skreli's investing videos to be pretty fucking interesting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI_riscmviI&ab_channel=MrMartinShkreli

Buffet's Letters to shareholders: https://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/letters.html

SEC Database great place to look up company filing & status for research https://www.sec.gov/search/search.htm



Options...I have no idea where to begin with that. It's so goddamn confusing.

In response to Reply # 24


          

If you don't want to make the stock market your hobby, just regularly put money into index funds and hold for a long time. The gambling with individual stocks is for fun money you wouldn't mind losing or for professionals/hobbyists. In my opinion.

I have an automatic transfer every week, and my job (hobby) is to think about the world and make a bet. Occasionally I'll lay out for a blue chip e.g. AMZN but mostly I'm just having fun.

Though I am making money for now. Up on 19/24 positions this year.

In response to Reply # 43


  

          

I'm the same with thinking about world events and how that might affect the market

the story that came, tossed the smoke grenade and disappeared was the Russia - Saudi oil price war.

I'm like reeeeally trying to remember the whole play by play which was this year and feels like 50 years ago.

but, it was something like, the price of oil dropped, no one was biting and there was such a surplus we ran out of storage so then shipping and logistic companies took on the surplus and then speculation on which shipping companies would be good bets took off. My fave moment during that time was making a really dumb play at the top of the hype with a company named Frontline Ltd which has the ticker symbol of FRO. My man, alright, alright, my man.

Short-term trading is overwhelming, long-term not nearly as much if you can manage to not obsessively check your portfolio and panic-sell.

when i was on facebook 3 years back, I joined the....Stash App group because I'm a masochist.

it was a panicky group of people new to investing and everyone there seemed to display the same trajectory.

day 1: "look at god, we made it , I wish more young people Would Get Like Me"

day 20: "oh shit, weed stocks ya'll. I wish more young people Would Get Like Me"

day 23: "hey ya'll uh, these weed stocks went down 4%, I think things are about to crash. I can't afford to lose $400. SHIT"

day 30: "alright, I shouldn't have sold them stocks ya'll. had I stayed in I would have had $600."

day 32: "what you know about crypto?"

Mainly a bunch of smart tech buys from one or two years ago. I peak every now and then especially when those prices dip but have consistently just held. But I think I want to start buying again in the new year. I pretty much stopped buying once covid hit because my heart couldn't do the speculations.

But yeah I want to play with this more. A few buys per month with options to cash out (or reinvest in long term funds) any profits like every three. This way I'm only playing with a little at a time. Supplemental investing for fun rather than thinking I am actually doing something.

I trade options and naturally stocks as a result. Options trading is cheaper and riskier than stocks depending on contracts bought.

Right now I'm buying and selling spreads while using calls to generate hundreds of stock shares cheaply.

Currently a mod in Stock/Options discord too growing as a trader.

54. "Question about options"
In response to Reply # 48


  

          

So let's say you've got $12,000 to spend. Would you rather buy 100 shares of Apple (give or take a couple hundred... I know it's at $122 right now) and sell a call for Apple at a $126 strike price and collect roughly $60 a week on the premium?

Or would you rather sell puts of various other companies? For example, DraftKings at $45 (currently at $49.25) to collect $40, NIO at $35 (currently at $42.95, but pretty volatile) to collect $40, and let's just say maybe 2 contracts of Workhorse at $20 each (currently at $21.95) to collect $45 each.

The reason I bring this up is because Apple seems safer and you're almost likely to collect the $60 a week on selling the call. On the flip side, those three other stocks are kind of volatile and I may end up being stuck with one of those stocks, although the premium may be higher (I think combined, in this hypothetical example, the premiums would be $170 a week).

And I'm sorry if those terms aren't the right terms. I hope you got the general gist of what I was saying. I just started option trading and I'm trying to figure out the right way to attack it.
