We had this idea after the cancer thread so I'm gonna put it out there.
I will say from the begining that if you don't play the market, don't like the market or hate the government then stay out. This will be enforced strictly.

This thread is for those who play around mainly with small amounts but is open to anyone.

Give a brief discription of what you hold, watch, intend on buying, etc....

Leave it to members to do their own research on if they should buy or not but you may give your opinion on what or why you think it is a pick WITHOUT getting into too much detail.

My story, I started my Scottrade account several years ago with $500. In the past 3 years I've let it get to about $1500, I pull $500 out and do it again.
Over 3 years or so I've done this 3-4 times. I never make big big money because I don't invest big big money. (That is what my 401K is for)
This is a fun hobby with the hopes of picking a big winner one day.

So I play alot of penny stocks. Most who know will tell you with pennies that you can do well or you can LOSE it all quick. They are in penny land for a reason, most barely have capital to stay afloat.

Because of that I live by three rules.

1. Watch it close
2. Don't invest much
3. take profits.

If you inves $200 and it doubles at least take your original $200 back and leave the rest and ride on free money.

Most times I take it all so hitting the big one may never happen for me.

Study your picks and never chase a stock. I learned this the hard way many many times. I'm just now getting to the point where I'm getting decent at picks.

I do play P&Ds, (Pump and Dumps) they key is get in early , take any profit and get out quick.
So,



OK, We all know from the other thread about CBIS, I think it will continue to grow until FDA approval and/or they are bought out by a bigger fish.
My target is $1 in a year or so and possibly $3 in the long term.


Other than that I have and am LONG on ATIG,
ATIG is a small internet gaming company. The key is they work with the indian reservation casinos providing the service of linking them.

We all know that online gaming for money (IE; Poker) has been shut down by the gov. There appears to be a loophole in the law that makes indian reservations immune to this. Their goal is to create a online network where you can play (Many different games) at or through the indian reservation network systems.

If this works it will take off IMO.

I have 170,000 shares at a .0026 average.
It is down a little now but swings up to .0034 often. I don't take profits on this one.


Next is BONZ
Small gold mining company, they just blew their wad on buying up more land. They need financing to get it going. Their new CEO is a pro at this from what I gather so I'm betting on it.
It is a long shot but is up a bit right now.

I'm in 10,000 shares at a .025 avg.

I was in GEAR and plan on getting back in at the bottom, This was a golf equipment maker that totally switched dirrections and went into mining. lol


I also have another health care pick,
GNTA.
They also are working on cancer treatments. Even with new news it is still a little down at the moment so if you like it now is a good time.
I'm in 10,000 at a .0025 avg so this one is cheap.

BFHJ.
Appears to be a P&D. not sure why but without much research I jumped in.
lol
(Sometimes you just got to go with the gut)
I'm in 500,000 at .0002 so I'm doubled at the moment and need to follow my own advice and GTFO.

Last is PSPF, Powersports factory inc.
They import and market scooters/motorcycles.
This was pumped a while back and never took off for some reason. They recently hired a marketing firm to help boost shareholder value.

I;m at 20,000 shares all at .0055 and it currently sits at .0074 so a little gain.

The others I have are all long shots where you can buy 500-10,000 shares for like $20 and sit on it forever with hopes. If they never do anything I lose $20, big deal.

I will post later with things on my watch list.

Stuck, (because I can and it was requested)

A few other notes, For research I use.

Investors hub.
Barcharts for charts, buy/sell/hold tips (This is my main sorce for data)
Leslie Howard email reports, (Do opposite of what he says in most cases) He is always a little behind on P&Ds
And just to laugh, don't take anything serious until you get to know who knows what they are talking about, Yahoo finance message boards.

God they need some moderators. lol

Great idea. I don't have any money in the market to trade with, however I do follow them on a daily basis and I'm hopeful that in a few years when I'm more stable I will have more to add.

Just wanted to add that a couple good research sites are
- Thestreet.com
- Minyanville.com
- Yahoo Finance

I have 6 that I've done really well with (thank you Lord :rockon:). 1 of these 6 (Weatherford) is going to explode in the near future, for reasons I won't go into. The only one I'm watching right now and am looking to buy is Hyflux - Singapore. This is another one that has serious promise for different reasons.

IMHO if you are not going to say WHY you believe something is going to "explode" in the near future you should just keep that opinion out of the thread.

say what you have but keep opinions on it to yourself unless you are going to expand on the whys so that those of us with interest can make an informed decision.

Weatherford has been on a pretty steady slide over the last year, only 4 of the last 12 months have they closed out up in the stock market. analysts are hot hugely keen on it. it is interesting that one of their officers just purchased 1k shares this month.

I mainly play "blue chip" stocks which are stocks such as General Mills,General Electric, Proctor and Gamble, etc. I like these stocks because their established stocks with low votality and nice dividend payouts.


Right now I am long Ford,Bank of A,UPS, and Fedex.


Ford is way undervalued at its current level and I see it approaching 20 dollars a share by years end, beginning of 2012.

Bank of A is trading way below other financial stocks and they still aren't trying to implement a dividend increase, which to me is a good sign the stock is going to rise.

With UPS and Fedex, the USPS is eventually gonna fold and one of these companies is gonna take over regular mail trade.

I Hope BoA rises, I'm down almost 50% on it.
I also own alot of Honeywell. It sees hard resistance at around $60 all the time. I'm hoping it breaks that one day. If it does it should rise nicely.

Never gave much though on the USPS thing but it is something to look at. You may be right.

I see the end of the USPS imminent, with snail mail dying more and more, but even with its slowing pace ethier ups or FedEx will pick up what's left of the business.

I was in IRAQ when ford was at a buck and a quarter. wanted to get in on it but it took too long to get things set up. I finally got in at 900 shares at 5.25. so I am up almost 3x. hopefully it will keep going up. I may yet sink a bit into it.

I put in another buy for ATIG which will give me 300,000 shares. if it goes to a buck I am selling but for now I will just bounce with its ups and downs.

Dave, I hope you picked up ATIG at .0024 this morning.
I bought another 80k shares at .0024 put in the buy on Friday for .0025 and it dropped another .001 before the order when in WOOT!.

and I am giving GLUU some serious thought. with an 8.00 target if it drops a bit more am going to get a few hundred shares.

at some point some of this shit has to hit for me LOL

As far as ATIG, did you get in at .0024 and then jump out today at .0032?

Damn, if you are in at .0025 than you will be sitting fat at anything over .25+!
pretty much LOL. it is a real gamble tho. I bought 125,000 shares of a company called EXPO HOLDIND (EXPH) at .0091 while I was in Iraq. it went up and then tanked and then they went bankrupt and now those shares are worth .0001 or exactly 12.50. LOL and I can't sell them now. so if you are going to mess with penny stocks you have to stay on top of it. Wasn't so easy to do from IRAQ so now I have several that I have taken losses on that I am waiting to recover rather than dump them.

Odyssey Marine Exploration - OMEX $2.91

I bought into this in 2010 at under a buck simply because the story behind that sunken treasure they found off the coast of Spain. I buy into stocks like this for fun when I like the product or in this case, the compelling and ongoing legal battle.
