It has to be.
Closed at 10.06 today. I wish I would have grabbed some of this.
I've hung onto TWMJF and it's up 107% since I bought in. Still short though, so I'll hang onto it for a while. I think the Canadian weed market, especially with recreational expanding soon, could be a nice long term play.
You didn't miss out on anything. They did a reverse stock split in the summer which is rarely a good thing.

Ah ok, makes sense.
MU is a current darling.
Beat earnings and all firms have increased their targets for 2018.
A little recap.
Micron (MU) Stock Finally Getting The Respect It Deserves
Expect to make an easy move to 65 in 2018. Many think higher.
Did y'all pay attention? Trading at 41 during my last post.
I’ve been balls deep in LIGA since it was like .002. Gem of a little penny stock. If I’m correct, should get me at least $100k by 2019.
you guys going long or short term (or both?)
I’ve been in and out of LIGA depending on what the price and volume does. Up 51% over the last year of trading it.
I see something like this every morning when I start checking news, a Wall St play in 2 acts
I have some dividend stocks I've owned for a very long time.
Other than that, I look for overreactions and purchase stocks after a sell off. Those I typically don't hold very long - it just depends on how long the recovery takes.
I don't day trade. And I don't short - although it's tempting sometimes.
I do day trade, & even though this is the internet & I've never lost a trade, I wouldn't advise anybody to do it.
Musk has found the authors of his next business model, & after news of cutting costs by hiring a bunch of college interns to head up Tesla's accounting department, I'm now bullish
If you can't run a company that makes money, buy a reporting entity that will champion your decisions and make you feel good about yourself.
the media is starting to catch on, took them long enough Elon Musk is a messianic huckster
So over the course of a year what percentage are you guys making on your overall portfolios?
My longterm stuff is in Vanguard index funds, so a tiny bit behind what the market does. Though every day I get closer to going full Ron Paul & putting it into gold, something is not right in the market
Ford is a bargain right now.
They are getting beat up with some short-term losses due to the recall. But the fundamentals are strong and their truck production alone will carry the stock up.
Buy it for under 11 tomorrow.
Sell at 14.50 inside of 8 months.
I bought in last summer when it dipped below 11. Set the sell at 15 but it never hit. Now I'm basically even, but it pays a 5% dividend so I'm OK waiting for the rebound. Depending on how quick it climbs when it finally starts heading north I might tweak that sell price up.
I agree. Ford is a no-brainer at this point.
And I drive a Chevy
Right now my portfolio looks ugly because I have 1 turd that is killing me, but I'm too stubborn to take the loss and I'm pot-committed so I'm just waiting for a spike.
But if you count the profits of stocks I've sold off, I was up around 12-15% last year. Not great. Not terrible.
I have a few that are killing it. I bought PG forever ago at $30.
I bought into MO about 5 years ago at $33.
* But both of those are great dividend stocks. So they are making me money while they are making me money.
I've had some turds though. It happens. For an example - AOBC is fucking killing me right now. I can't believe it hasn't rebounded yet - but gun stocks are weird. Maybe I should have voted Hillary.
Fellow Ford holder. I think the Ranger and Bronce will set us up nice. I forgot what I set my sell order to...
