    Everybody is trading aurora it seems.

    Activision-Blizzard is continuing to get destroyed. I opened a position. Bought 10 shares around $40.

    Currently holding BHC, MNK, COST. Did not get off calls today. Need MNK to hit 21.50 before I sell calls. Will sell BHC calls tomorrow and hopefully can get off some 210 COST calls tomorrow for at least a buck fifty

    I love how when I logged in to the War Room, there's a thread entitled 'What do we do about people who are stupid with money?' right on top of this one, about speculating in the stock market.

    If you are buying & selling individual equities, you are stupid with your money. Put your cash in an S&P 500 Index fund and you- proven by actual science countless times over- make more money. You are choosing to lose money by trying to be a stock trader. Index funds guys

    Most of my mining stocks have been getting wrecked the last two weeks. I probably should have sold some after they went up the first couple weeks this year. Everything else is doing OK except Vodafone, which is a piece of shit. Thinking of selling GE. I bought right before it plummeted from 12 to 7.

    I am trying to help you make more money. Would you like to make more money, or less money?

    Here is a scientifically validated idea on how to do it, accepted by virtually every intelligent person on Earth- just put your money in index funds, and don't trade individual stocks. Warren Buffett tells investors to do this!! Are you smarter than Warren Buffett?

    He probably thinks he is giving us new information we haven't heard. Again, I beat the market anyway.

    One of the reasons it usually makes more money is because of fees. Mutual funds and such ARE the market but they underperform it when you add in fees. All these etfs are the fuckin same. Amazon. Google. JP Morgan. It isn't rocket science to create your own with a few adjustments with no expense ratio.

    Warren Buffet doesn't take his own advice. He gives that advice to plebs and it is good advice, but pros like him and I pick stocks.

    Netgear died cuz of Amazon. Glad I sold it.

    Shares of Netgear (NASDAQ:NTGR) were down 13.1% as of 12:45 p.m. EST Tuesday after Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) agreed to acquire a privately held competitor in the home-networking space.

    Yesterday after the market closed, Amazon announced it will acquire Eero, a provider of mesh Wi-Fi systems capable of essentially "blanketing" homes with reliable wireless coverage, for an undisclosed sum.

    Index funds make greater returns than trying to pick individual stocks. The evidence is overwhelming. Arguing otherwise is like being a flat Earther. Good luck guys

    A Vanguard fund has the lowest fees possible. You have it exactly backwards, buying & selling individual stocks requires paying a commission each time, which is one of the reasons why passive always beats active. Not to mention the value of your time- I spend two minutes a year beating your returns, how much time do you put into doing research, etc.?

    LOL. I think I know who you are. It's actually kind of obvious.

    Should have stuck with your original schtick. You had most the board fooled
