    Lmao this market stuff is so crazy. My eyes are literally glued to my phone all day at work when I'm at my desk.

    Booting out

    3 Shares of AMD
    Disney
    Johnson and Johnson
    1 Share of Shopify

    Bringing in

    TMobile
    ATT
    McDs
    Paypal
    Verizon

    NVDA over AMD, but AMD is setting up something with Amazon or some shit so I might regret not holding out longer. I missed out on the NVDA blowup last week too, real bummer. Disney is garbage and I'm taking out the trash, why they won't sell ESPN I'll never know, it's probably because nobody wants that ish especially with all the media attention now (not waiting for SW either). Johnson is a great health stock, and it has pretty good dividends too but I'm just not down for health shit now. Shopify is growing and I have plenty of stocks there.

    McDs is literally on every fucking corner in America. I need to make money off shit people are using everyday, and together with Domino's I like it. You can feed a family 4 with Domino's alone, or cheap shit off the McD's menu. Phone/Wireless shit just getting used everyday man, people are gonna need plans and shit for those iPhones coming out. All this tech coming out. Sprint is just going to merge with T-Mobile so don't need them. Paypal is getting bigger too, all the ATMs are going to have some kind of option for this lmao they're everywhere.

    Amd might be a good thing to jump into. I prob wouldn't trust Mcdonalds though.

Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    I think McDonalds is in a similar situation as Walmart, in that they had a great business model, but are failing to adapt to the times.

    What I want is to find something and just stick with it lol. I've been changing my portfilio a lot lately even though I understand that's the market in a nutshell. You win some, you lose some. McDs can be a hit or miss at times, but what I wanted to do is pair another popular food product with Domino's since they are absolutely killing it right now. Chipotle might be too risky, and McDs pays more dividends than at Jacks. I need to sell some shit, and find a way to target Boeing and Tesla. I need bread winners!

    I'm selling Apple, iPhone might be overhyped. This phone shit can go too (T Mobile, whatever), I need Aerospace products. Alibaba and NVDA I want to keep, but I don't want to put anymore money in this portfolio it's like at 2K. I might go ham and sell both! Let's get some bread winners and profit off this administration!

    What is everyone's guess on when this bull market going to cool down? This is the 2nd longest bullish run in the stock market history, going 8 1/2 year strong. It is bound for correction.

    No clue. When we end up fighting a new war I guess. That always is enough to jolt the stock market.

    Starting to see the effects of diversification. Gains have been in the positive the last couple of days:

    NFLX
    TEVA
    ABBV
    SHOP(2)
    DPZ
    FB
    MCD
    BA
    BZUN(3)
    LMT
    TTWO
    EA

    ABBV was killing it today. It jumped up pass 6%, but then it cooled off around 4%. Jumping in TEVA might be risky, but I heard the new CEO has big plans for it. It took a massive hit already and I would like to think there's nowhere to go but up. Food stocks are doing their thing, McD's jumped again today and I'm just going to hold on longer for the dividends. FB is rebounding after the tech correction, but I missed out on buying the dip unlike Shopify. As long as BZUN is cheap I will continue to buy, it has a market cap of like a billion dollars so they are going nowhere.

    Recently I added TTWO and EA. Why? Because e-sports. Love it or hate it, arenas are getting filled and crowds of people are watching kids play video games. They are slowly becoming recognized as 'athletes' and it has become more global throughout the years. I think those two companies will have a hand in all that growth and development. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to add Activision Blizzard to the mix, but I like where I am at.

    I want to add the HD and Paypal to the portfolio, and then focus on consumer valuables. Along the way jumping back into NVDA, Microsoft, or BABA would be a good idea too.

    ive slowly been getting back into AMD, like i said before, its so volatile, you sell the pops, and buy the flops.

    my biggest winner this week was OPK, thing basically ran from 6 to 7 in a week, its been killing it since the JPM analyst downgrade

    For health stocks, now is a great time to get into Johnson and Johnson. Recently it dipped to 129 a share, that's a great mini discount for its actual worth. I did a swing trade and got out just before the dip, but now I'm back lmao. Dividends are pretty nice too.

    I did a swing trade on my TEVA stocks and used the money to hop in Paypal, which finished the day strong after a slow start. Everything is coming together man, I love it.

    one of my noobie regrets was J&J, i was in it around $86, then i sold it for a small gain, now look at it 2 years later, i should have chosen J&J as one of my long term holds instead of AT&T.

    BZUN up almost 10% today! I sold off around 4% fearing the dip! Fuuuuuck I missed out on a lot of money today lol, I had so many shares....

    Jumped into Square because I believe Paypal and Square work very well together. I also got into ROBO, it's a great stock (err ETF) that hasn't really had any dips. AI is changing the future!

    Interest on top of interest



    Trading for me has become like a hobby now, I'm on this boat until it sinks lmao. Today I sold off my ROBO shares because I want to jump back in BZUN, and I really shouldn't have left in the first place. It's legit asf.

    I sold one share of SHOP just before the dip and got into Costco since it doesn't seem to be affected by AMZN. Sold TMUS on a brief peak and bought Microsoft on a dip, then hopped right back to TMUS when that dipped lmao!

    Got recked by SHOP today, RIGHT before I bought AMZN and was gonna sell. Damn.

    Well good news is that I sold some of my shares before the freak out, so I didn't take that much of a hit. I hate selling dips but I was going to get rid of SHOP anyway, it's overpriced and no dividends. I used that opportunity to jump back into AAPL since I think 152 is a good buy (I wanted 150, but this will do)

    Good thing I jumped outta TEVA too, down -13.81% holy shit. Nice avoid there.

    Jumped in CAT at the perfect time, it has a very positive outlook under this administration.

    EDIT: Okay I'm gonna sell Facebook and T-Mobile man. FB is just overpriced too, and they have been in the news a lot lately. I ALSO heard Mark is gonna sell off a huge chunk of stock soon. I got in about $171; waaaaaaay too much. T-Mobile is not growing at the pace that satisfies my needs. Replacing these two with Coca-Cola, a great stock that's still recovering from a dip months back. Now is the time to get in, I can get it around a $30 dollar discount!

    Netflix was on fire today. I sold at $189, but it got all the way up to 194!!! Damn son, I should have held out. Now I gotta wait until the next dip.

    FB and T-Mobile went up today, but I don't regret selling. FB is really overpriced right now, and another dip is coming I know it. That's when I'll jump in, and T-Mobile well burn in hell lol it never grows. Used the money to get back into NVDA and BABA on their dips, very excellent! I also added COKE, much safer than EFX long term. Sold Microsoft on a peak, but I plan on jumping back in!

    All around I made $50 bucks today sitting on my ass

    I got out of NFLX because I heard there's gonna be a price hike.

    Costco dip! I got after hours trading....hmm.

    Not bad today +23.38, I'm loving this ride. NVDA is better than AMD, sorry Ken. AMD is too volatile for my taste. Also, Google hit $1000 for the first time today.

    Paypal and Square continue to make me money. Really underrated, quiet stocks.
    Health stocks are up. Amazon cleaned house last week, SOOOO glad I jumped in!
    Added to my shares in FB and Netflix
    McDs has been hot lately
    Defense stocks are starting to rise again
    Added Home Depot

    I'm very diversified. My gaming shares dropped, but this is a minor correction. ESports will make me a shit ton of money, like them or hate them.

    AMD has been doing its thing the past week or so, my target this time around is $15, if it gets to 15, but cant hold above it, sell, if it breaks down below 14, sell. im just hoping i dont get knocked out of it before earnings.

    No expendable $$ atm so going to just sit tight for awhile. So that Lowe's position i have, with all the recent calamity happening, it has risen 8% value so far. On one hand, I feel like an asshole making $$ off people's misery but on the other hand fuck it $$ is $$. Going to hold till next Spring and make a call then.
    Speaking of Chinese stocks, my next goal is to get in on Alibaba Group(BABA) for long-term holds. Better get on it while the price is still 'affordable' for my broke-ass and before it balloons into Amazon/Alphabet/Priceline price level.
    Things I've regret: not finding the Motley Fool's Rule Breaker Investing podcast ( https://www.fool.com/podcasts/rule-breaker-investing) sooner. Finished listening this year's podcast episodes where he reviewed his stock recommendation on previous year and goddamn man, solid advice overall. Granted most of his recommendation are long-term (3~5 years minimum) hold, it still amazes how so many of his pick beats the S&P 500.

    BABA is trending a nice dip too, so now is the time to get in. It has made me quite a bit of money; I jumped in and sold high on many occasions. I def plan on adding to my position for this stock before it really blows up. I am thinking possibly around 5 to 10 shares.

    Another thing I am looking at is the Seaboard Corporation, there's not many stocks where I would literally say "buy it and hold on until you die" but yeah man. SEB has the highest share price of any company traded on an American stock exchange, and it's super-super diversified by itself. The only thing that concerns me is that its earnings can fluctuate greatly due to the hogging of prices on pork products, but for a buy and hold it's a no brainer. For somebody like me, this might be possible considering I am rent/utilities free for the next couple of years.

    EXCELLENT CALL on Baidu, it jumped up 3% today. Tons of money was just flooring in, and I loved this bull rush. Ironically, it costed me WYNN, which ALSO jumped up 3% wow. I might jump back into WYNN even though I hate casino stocks, I mean for me I just love the diversification. Another 30 dollars racked in today for just sitting on my ass.

    Sold off the Home Depot for 2 Microsoft shares. It's a no brainier, twice the dividends plus it's like immune to huge dips. My portfolio is getting a little tech heavy again so might pick up Pepsi along the way.

    I'd say I'm averaging around $7-10 extra bucks per day on normal days, and it's really thanks to my diversification in the market. Highest I have lost so far is around $25 bucks one day, but I have no fear at all about that because my money is sitting on some really great companies and blue chips. My total return on the year is close to $200, and I have only been in the market for 1 month so that's stellar to me.

    I have around 4K in the market right now, so I can assure you 3K is totally enough to jump in. I have a desk job, so nobody bothers me when I'm looking at graph charts and doing my work. By this, I can keep a keen eye on the market and do swing trading, or I can buy stocks whenever hot news comes out. If there's a dip, I can get the hell out possibly fast enough to save extra $$$

    Those days I made $30 and $50 were REALLY good days lol

    2K is a VERY good return for the year, most of it must come from swing trading AMD so much lol.

    You should try to swing trade Ford too Ken (if you haven't yet). In fact, the ex-dividend day is on the 20th. I plan on buying a shit ton of Ford shares tomorrow.

    yea not going to lie, most of it is from amd lol, last year i made most of it from TWLO and LABU. there is always "hot stocks of the year" every year you can ride or swing trade. this year there was a ton because this has been the best bullish year in a while, off the top of my head nvda, baba, amzn, aaoi, atvi, amd, visa, etc.

    right now im in amd waiting on earnings, and my long term holds are opk(in at $6.50 average), T(in at $33 average), and i recently added GE(in at $25), only extra funds i have laying around are for a rainy day type sell off, you should always have like 5-10% cash free in case some big ass sell off comes in the market that has nothing to actually do with the fundamentals of companies you are watching.

    Speaking of earnings, Paypal announced theirs and the stock jumped 3.28%--so I missed out on that. I sold it today to put more shares into Ford, but I wouldn't say that was a complete miss because I bought 115 shares of Ford and it's up 33% right now. In fact, I sold a bunch of my positions to get as many Ford shares as I can (ex-dividend day is tomorrow). I dropped Paypal, Square, EA, TTWO, GLAD, MAIN, and PEP.

    Ford is a gold mine: great dividends, swings, buy and holds, dip buys, rally sells, it's all their man. I fucking love this stock.

    Gonna redo my portfolio, I'm satisfied with the money I made and now it's time to move on. I want to focus on capturing some of these dividend monsters, and since I can watch graphs at work I need something a bit more than buy and holding strategies.

    Gonna start with buying 80 shares of MAIN. Monthly dividend and OK growth? No brainer. Extra $15 bucks a month is nothing to sneeze at.
    Ford swing trading is also good. I got in before ex-dividend day so that's just more money coming my way.
    APLE and GLAD could be future holds, both are monthly dividends without too much volatility.
    Whatever else that goes on sale, I'll jump in. For instance, SHOP is trending back up from $92. That's when I should of jumped in.

    One risky move is the Seaboard Corp.

    I can get in on this dip, and sell the rally (with that volume it will be hard asf though). I could make about $500 quick dollars off this really risky move.

    Or NVR, I think Imma jump in NVR. It's insane
