    Investors unite!

    I was thinking it would be good to have a thread whereby those of us in the market can share information/tips/ask for and receive advice.

    I thought we could start by sharing a bit about our portfolios.

    Here's mine:
    Stocks
    Siri
    ge
    mmm
    Goog
    Amzn
    Kog
    aapl
    Nvda
    Ngd

    Mutual funds
    Afjcx
    Fesgx
    Mclox
    Tegbx

    As you can see, I'm tech heavy but that's the industry I know.

    My first question for you all is whether anyone has an opinion on Amazon. I bought at about 160 and I'm worried about them having another bad quarter. Should I sell now, take a profit, and get back in in a few weeks or months or hold?

    I got out of the equity markets back in 2007 and never looked back. Unless you really know the markets and investing, I'd say let a professional do your investing for you. The $ you will spend in fees will be much less than any potential loss from bad investments. Personally I don't like the equity markets at all - but I really like the bond markets - specifically, municipal bonds.

    Seems a little high cap heavy but then again i have no idea how old you are so maybe that was the intent. Other than that...tech heavy like you said. Always good to know the market but diversification is better. Maybe correct with mutual funds in area you aren't as familiar with so someone else who is can manage a bit.

    I actually have about half of those myself though. Have to get home to post a more inclusive list.
    Never thought I would see the day...

    investing 101, don't go onto a forum site and say...what do you think. good for a laugh but don't take the advice too serious.

    I manage a modest portfolio and unless you don't mind spending 10 - hours a day researching, this isn't the game for you if you want to make serious money.

    And lastly, in light of my last sentence, if I had some good advice because of the the '000's of hours I invested, nothing personal but I wouldn't tell you without charging a fee!

    I assume you are correct. I have an advisor with Merrill lynch who handled about 70% of my investments and has it mostly in those mutual funds. The rest is my "fun money" which is mostly in the stocks above.

    For what its worth, I've made a much higher rate of return with my fun money than my "buy high sell low guy" has done for me. But I know in the long run I'll be better off with him than alone.

    Fair enough. I intended this to be more of a "for fun" board for novices such as myself to bounce some ideas off each other and provide a diversity of opinions. But mostly just a place for car guys to $#@! and brag about the comings and goings of the market.

    pretty much this, if you dont do tons of research and put in thousands of hours you might as well go to vegas.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
