I'm only down 90% of my investment in SOSO. I've also got a pretty stable stake in Large Cap and Intnl. I only have about 15% in Micro, however I am a young investor and would like to entertain my "large risk" investing while I am still single and have no debt. That being said, what would be a realistic return goal for my 15% "high risk"?

Clearly I think I spread myself out too much in these micros. My strategy was to mitigate risk by diversifying, however that tactic seems to have backfired. Sooo, would you reccomend making fewer, more confident moves in small cap?

Thank you again!!!

Thanks for the help. I'm only down 90% on SOSO, my other postitions that are down but are long term buys, so I'm not too worried. I have between 70-80% in Large-Mid Cap and Intnl. Its my 20-30% in Micro that I'm struggling with.

I had tried to spread my Micro over several different stocks so as to mitigate the risk I'm exposing myself to, but I think you are advising to make/have fewer, but less speculative micro positions?

Thanks again!

Can you offer any advice? I've lost a ton on SOSO ( I bought it with QTM after the spike and it has since lost 90%). I'm down on SSHS and UTRM. I just sold off my RNMM and QTMM to buy FAZ. I'm holding 5000 shares of MESA, 1000 shares of EEE and 1000 shares os SRZ. In two months I've managed to make and then lose 3K. Looking for anyone's opinion on wha to hold and what to dump and what to then buy. I'm a Military guy stuck in the middle east right now and I can't spend my pay anywhere else so it would be nice to come home in 2010 with enough scratch to put a down payment on a house. Thanks for reading my rant, and thank you all in advance for any replies!!!!!

Ok Taters,

First off....you have played with some fire there with the OTCBB stocks. Get away from that!! Ok, the stock market right now is very uncertain right now. I agree with TEX. I have never heard of most of them with the exception of FAZ, EEE, SRZ. I have never owned any of them before. I read something about ETFs which is what FAZ is and it said they are designed for those who want to hold for a few hours. So in other words, if your busy with the military, you might want to dump it when you can. I would buy various stocks each month or every several weeks. You will average your price over the months. I think the markets will be up big with in the next year or two.

Don't chase stocks!!!

If you can't babysit your account then don't buy risky stocks. Good less risky stocks would be like GE, T, WMT....and others like those. Grab things that pay divys. Has earnings and good balance sheets.

Stay off the other threads on here. Most of them are all BS scams.

Good luck man.

I also agree with TEX..jut do steady buy with a fixed amount of funds every paycheck..say 300 bucks or what ever you determine..its called averaging..what ever the price, every friday, buy, some time you will get more shares some weeks less..just kiip in mind, F is not going anywhere for a long time and SIRI , although a penny stock, it is a really unusual penny stock, unlike anyothers, I very rarley put mola into sub dollar stocks, but think about it, they own the whole network in the country, they got howard strarns, opra winfry and others on the payroll..they are not your normal start up penny stock BS..the other time I put big bucks into a penny stock was just after the crash of 2002 when NT was around 40 cents I had been buying from 2 bucks and when it hit 40 cents i put what was a ton of bucks for me then into it..they and CSCO where at the time the biggest telco equipment mfg in the world..it jumped to 3.50 in about 2 months..my good muck then..I think (and feel) this is just that same situation

Morpheus,

I love F, I'm holding 200 shares after buying 500 at 1.87 and selling 300 at 3.30, thus my 200 are pure profit.

I'll check out Sirius thanks!

MESA is up 56% before the bell! I've seen a lot of activity with them lately. I think they have a good business model and stand to do well as long as oil is stable.

I wish as well. I may buy into a bit more FAZ near the close today ... I am down quite a bit on it, so I am still undecided.

At least my AGQ has recovered some, I am only down like $1,200 on it now, lol [Smile]

understood, but even then -- every trade, ideally -- you don't enter unless you have an exit strategy in mind, first. In other words, plan your trade, trade your plan...

good luck

I bought in at .14 and hopefully I will begin a veeeery gradual sell off at .29, or a dump if it dips to .19.

Thanks again for the advice. Do you recommend any particular books on the market/trading? I've already ordered a couple from BooDog's post on the 17th.

I'm going to start some paper day trading after the 1Q earnings are all done and see if I can manage to earn $2k a month for four months with a $50k stake. (on paper only!)

Cheers!

DNDN....one of my father's picks. Well, it shot up to $24 from $5 and now they released some news break and crashed down to $11 and halted now. Will be NUTS when it re-opens. 20% of the stock is short.

this is mostly speculative, but I spent four years in HI. With Aloha Airlines out of the market there is definately less competition between airlines. However the intra-islands carriers make a lot off of military flights going from Oahu to the big island for training exercises. These flights are way down for this quarter as the majority of military units from the island are deployed right now. I think earnings might be under the mean. Just speculative, but thought you might be interested.
