I have no idea what I'm doing but I invested $1k in Oil stocks 4 weeks ago and I'm half way to paying for my new trolling motor already. HAL is up almost 100% from what I bought it at.

BT. I have been messing around by myself since 17. Started an account with $1000 and just bought blindly. It was the best money I have spent. It has been a learning experience and you will developers your style of investing. I like to look at companies debt to assets. Also look for companies where there top guys are buying or opting for shares instead of bonus. I still throw a Yo bet out every once in a while but know that when I pitch the chips. I still have my retirement done by others. Im still chump change but over the years. I put a few $100s in a month. I set my dividends to reinvest

I bought a few shares of RCL as planned last month. It's doing well right now. Too well. LOL I’m ready to buy more but not where it’s at currently. Need it to slide back to the mid-$30’s before I jump back in. If it hits $50 though I’ll probably sell and take my profits and initial principle and hope/wait for a slide back closer to $40 and reinvestment that money plus what I’m sitting on and buy back in.

I'm also no expert, but I'm in with energy stocks for the long run (VLO, HAL, XOM, EOG, MPC, APA, and OXY). I know it'll get worse before it gets better, but I think at the price I bought in at a week ago, I'll make some money in the future.

TDOC just had a good dip after people pulling gains, so good time to jump in for the long haul.

Apache and Oxy are pretty risky right now. Oxy reports earnings on Tuesday. Not expecting it to be good. May be another buying opportunity. Not sure if the current price is already factored in for earnings.

I'm thinking this dip may continue this week. They may be trying to cause panic to see if they can get the DOW back down to 21-22k one last time.

It's really strange times watching stocks rip higher like this is the last chance one will ever have to buy...and then tank like they are all going bankrupt the next day.. Then repeat.

I'll be a buyer this week. A big buyer if it gets close to 22k

I pulled all mine out after the craziness Thursday and Friday. I am new to it all but I agree with RiverRat1. Something felt off end of the week.

I bought some AAL, as well as Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) today. They are at a 70% discount from a year ago, and though times are rough I think they will bounce back.

Take a look at Upwork right now “UPWK” it is on fire and I think it will double again. Closed today @ $13.58 and been jumping 10% everyday for the last few days. I bought in right before the crash @ $8.92 and wish I doubled down when it was in the $5’s.

The company focus’s on freelancers that contracts out to company and also partners with companies to guide them how to have employees work from home. Microsoft is a client of theirs, they are growing fast

I bought some more RCL today. I've been watching it the last month and moving my purchase price down as the stock market contracted, but then this morning I got busy and took my eye off it for a little while. I ended up buying at the price point I had initially been wanting to, but if I'd had a chance I would have bought it for at least a $1.50/share less. Oh well. I was content a month ago to buy it where I ended up getting it so I guess I can't complain too much.

I'm confident they'll be back. People aren't just going to quit going on cruises.

Well I feel kind of smart after today. LOL I had bought RCL with a cost basis of $33.50 then cashed it all in today at $53.50. I made a nice little profit so now I'm going to take all the principle and profit and wait (and hope) for a down-turn, then buy it back. Hopefully it'll get somewhere around $40/share and I will wind up with almost double the number of shares I had before. That's the plan anyway.

How bad will Second quarter numbers destroy the inflated growth right now? At some point these companies hemorrhaging money yet their stocks are soaring are going to get caught right?

I don't see how they can't. That's why I sold RCL when I did. They're making $0 right now so there's no reason the price should be marching up like it has been.

Stocks are priced off of a multiple of future earnings.

Yes but when their second-quarter earnings are zero people are going to act like they never saw it coming and that the company's about to fold or something. Then they'll sell. It's stupid but it seems to happen every single time. I'm just hoping that it happens again.

ECL hit an all time high today at $212...sure wish I would have bought more when it was down to $125 back in March! Apparently selling hand sanitizers and sterilization products is a good business to be in during a pandemic

Wait a week or so and keep an eye on crestwood equity. If it drops to $10 or lower again Id buy

I have made a good chunk off of RCL since I got it at $24.04. Also bought Draftkings DKNG at $28.99.

Looking for AMD to go below $50 and Tesla to go below $800. Missed that one today.

Anybody have any EFT's that they're invested in and/or would recommend? I've been investing in ITOT, which is indexed against the S&P, but it just doesn't seem to move a whole lot.

Vanguard has some good ETF funds for many sectors. VTI.....VDE ( Energy so this one could be more volatile ) VOO, etc. They have a long list. I would reach out to one of the guys here that does this for a living.
