    Yes, Pretty much zero diversity but not a large wager either. It is gambling for sure. I'm always torn between taking a profit and buying back in cheaper and doing it again or just riding the overall trend. I guess if they raise the LT cap gains rate to more closely match short term rates I'd probably trade more often.

        BPOP

        Recently at $1.90, closed today at $1.49, down to $1.44 after hours. I'd get out after a 10% gain and re-evaluate.

        Gambling's fun!

        Mine closed at $1.79 today. Nice 20% gain. I'm in the wrong business..

          Simpson (SSD) is off a bit from it's recent highs. I just bought at a bit under $29. Pays a dividend, too, btw,

              I saw that! Nice return for one day. Lessee, 7% x 5 days a week times 52 weeks....

              1820% a year! Nice APR!

                  Not to hijack your thread but yesterday a market analyst predicted Apple to go over $700.

                    Not a hijack at all. I've been watching Apple for a while, and I keep thinking it's too rich to buy in, and it keeps going up. Are you a buyer at $542?

                    (BTW Simpson up 4.5% today)

                        And it looks like you got in (at least some of it) at 21.65? That's a nice 31% gain. Have you taken any profit? You think it'll keep going up as oil/gas prices go up?

                        I sold 15,000 shares of BPOP at 1.91 (for a 28% gain since I posted 3 months ago) then bought 10,000 back at 1.83 this week. It closed today at 1.91, after making it up to 1.97. I think I'll sell again at 1.98 or so then buy back in at 1.88 or so, I expect it'll bounce around a bit before busting 2.00.

                        SSD was up again today, but that one I think I'll just hold for a while.

                          Stock market is thru the roof today and of course up 96% from just 3+ years ago, happy times are here for investors, people with retirement accounts. I do believe the economy is rebounding.

                            BPOP closed at 2.10 today. Up 41% from my recommendation. Remarkable. (SSD is up 12% in six days since my March seventh recommendation when I bought at $29.)

                            I'm in the wrong business.

                                VLO has been chugging. Chevron refinery fire and the new pipelines being built is a big positive.
