Re: Short Term Growth Investing

What stocks have you been following?

Educate yourself, play on paper, read and learn everything you can. Ask more questions. DO NOT subscribe to services such as this who promise to send you a pick or two a month and make you think [more]

Re: Paying down Mortgage

I don't know what your interest rate is, let's be conservative and say 5%. Now we'll take a simplistic look at it (very rough numbers).

You drop $10K extra into your home loan, it's gone (not liquid) unless you take out a home equity loan to [more]

Re: What to do

Investing is not a guessing game ... don't try to "guess" which stocks will return you any money.
I strongly beg to differ ... now think about it. EVERY investment you make is an informed educated guess - OR - it's a total shot [more]

Obviously what they found was a new lower boundary to add to the numbers they were using in their radiation pressure calculations. Averages on assumed parameters always change based on new discoveries such as this. Now they also need to statistically [more]

Re: Defense Industries

Sorry that you were referred to Fool boards that haven't been posted on in years! Also the CAPS site is a game and does not really reflect what people are truly thinking regarding a certain stock (well maybe some people take it seriously, but it [more]

Re: New Tiller

As already mentioned, there is no slowdown in tine rotation during tilling.
Perhaps you have some fantastic tillable soil there. Try using your tiller in some Georgia red clay.

Re: $10, 000 to invest

Just my opinions

Sonic Healthcare (SKHCY or SKHCF) are very low volume stocks plus on the OTC Pink - I just personally would not venture there.

Merge Healthcare (MRGE) should be a good buy. Might do good long term, might [more]

Re: New Tiller

PSU "Engineer" ?

So if all the Mantis tillers have the same tine rotation spec and also the same tine design, you would think the digging ability would be based on the weight of the machine. A heavier machine would dig faster. [more]

Re: Short Term Growth Investing

cslewis42,

Every investment is a risk so you need to mitigate some of the risk where possible to put the odds more in your favor. IPOs are extremely risky and most brokerages do not like clients that pump & dump them.

Re: buy recomendations

Why would you do that? Investments should be based on YOUR in depth research. None of their recommendations that I have seen are 'timely', usually that are for opportunities that have passed or speculation of the future that is usually incorrect.

Re: Bonus money

What % of your portfolio consists of AAPL now? If it is over 8-10% you would definitely be better off splitting the money up and buying some other stocks to diversify. If you don't have an emergency fund, you might want to put that cash aside and not [more]

Re: MF staff sold AMBA but still recommends

I recall that there is some kind of regulation that MF cannot disclose buy/sell recommendations within a certain number of days before or after they personally took an action. I think it is 30 days. The information was on one of these boards [more]

Re: The downside of 401k loans...

We do have enough liquid reserves to cover the tax hit if treated as a disbursement. Wouldn't be happy about it, but we could do it if needed.


We could take money from another 401k to repay the loan. Avoids tax consequence, but the

Re: Credit Card Vs 401k

Not for nothing Tychon,

You do have another option.
Try to avoid paying the extreme penalties if at all possible and roll over your 401K to a fund that you can possibly borrow from. In this way, you can take out the $5000 as a loan to [more]
