Thinking of investing after seeing all the cash made on Tvix last night. If I had an account I would have bought at 2.86. It went to 3.4. That's like 20% bank loot right?

Flat broke, if you aren't you're doing it wrong.

A combination of luck and shrewd investing, mostly luck though.

Am 45 now and have only had 5 big moves in amounts.

1994 AWB had bought 1000 chinese 75 round drum mags previous to this for $5.95 each - sold them for upwards of $80 each plus shipping

13,484 shares $XTO stock got in at $4.64 - they were bought out for $85

more recently 75,545 shares $ACI near the bottom $1.26 and out at $8.33

Now am waiting patiently for a buyout of $RNN - 30,202 shares and growing.

books are for suckers
