re: Opinions on Cramer’s Action Alert Plus investment club - Jag_Warrior
All I know is, this little guy beat Cramer 2 out of 3 years in overall returns - and he works for bananas. :nana: Mr. Adam Monk [img]http://www.diyinvestor.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/mr-adam-monk.jpg[/img] ...

re: Is it time to sell the profit on Apple? - Jag_Warrior
I'm not a good person to ask since I've owned my core AAPL position for almost 20 years. But along the way I've bought and sold AAPL shares outside of that position, as well as doing various option trades on it. If it constitutes more than 10% or so of your portfolio, you could always lighten up...

re: Money Talk Cooler Heads. Talk me down a bit. Civil Unrest - Jag_Warrior
[quote]I think a lot of what we're seeing is the media knows they are losing grip over our trust and they are becoming more like the proverbial soon-to-be-ex that keeps coming up with progressively more and more dire emergencies to hold our attention. Leave the media and live. Don't let their world ...

[quote]Are we still hating Tesla on this board? [/quote] Personally, I've never been a Tesla hater. But because of the volatility, I've admired it from afar. :lol: My uncle's brother-in-law was an early investor. He's a buy & hold kinda guy (apparently with a strong stomach and steely nerves)....
