Re: October

All I can say is that I called the peak with my 2-bagger post. I think it was flyingcircus who told me to sell, which I didn't, because it wouldn't have been mechanical.

Re: 2 bagger

...and in the course of an hour the 2-bagger drops by a third, and a 124% gain turns into a 40% gain (less than a half-bagger). Still sweet, but I do hate the math of how the bigger fall harder.

Re: 2 bagger

Maybe this is getting off-topic, but I'm not sure I'd call teaching teens how to win a national debate championship a "comedown" from wannabe hedge-fund operator. Just look at what got Bill Gates on the cover of the Sunday Times Magazine [more]

Actually, my returns over the past 12 months are looking like 1999 all over again. Right before the dot com bust wiped me out, and then took me the past 14 years to get me back to where I was to [more]
