I guess Google is still an outlier, but the rest of the market is up due to the promise of another round of massive money-printing.

Apple has been going up really well too.
It is now over $300 at $305 today.

Aug 24th it was at $240.

My stocks however are in the toilet!

AMD was $10.24 but is now only $7.
I lost alot on HIG and waiting in hopes to break even to sell it.

Should not have listened when Cramer and other articles were saying to buy bank stocks.

There've been some studies showing that a monkey throwing darts is every bit as good as most mutual fund managers.

AMD back up to $9.
MSFT is down.

Bought Sonic (Drive In) then sold it today and bought Macy's.
But only 20 shares.

I am back up to making $3000.

GM is actually going up now after the first few weeks.

Pretty much we just buy companies we use in real life.

We read the news on yahoo finance and different websites.

Have not bought anything outrageous yet.

Well, this doesn't look good at all:



In related news, Germany has more jobs than workers.....who have to wait the longest in Europe to retire.

I'm just glad we're finally on the uptick, and grateful that this recession didn't kick my ass personally.
