Re: Stock investment poll

It seems one of the best investments over the last year was Greek bonds, which yielded 117%. How about these for 2013??

Serious? Not sure, but there is certainly money to be made in Greece, Spain and Portugal if you know what you're doing. I know a guy who has done very well in the Spanish markets in the last couple of years. I'll stick with what I know...

Re: Stock investment poll

If you are willing to invest in high risk investments, you could win or lose a lot in countries like Spain or Portugal....

With every investment high risk or not there are winners & losers in every transaction ever made.

Good, the price could explode like Netflix did when the shorts have to cover.

we'll see. aapl seem to be very vulnerable to bad news right now. and although i think they have some serious challenges in the middle/long term, it might be premature to write them off already.

shorting at 600+ was one thing. to short at 420-ish is rather brave!

Re: Stock investment poll

dipped below 400, briefly.

http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=aapl&ql=1

Ouch.
I'm with the rumors that say it will take some more time for any really new products to be released (they had their share of half-assed launches, I believe they're not willing to risk even more customer-goodwill in that department) - in the meantime, the stock could be butchered further.

Are you sticking with your prediction for $1,000 a share by November 2013?

You have to realise that the sun going around the world which takes 1 year has little to to investments or the business cycle, unless of course your an astrologer.

Which I think is good news for speculators, the last thing you want to do is follow market sentiment or you would have been buying at 700. They dropped from 190 to 78 in 2009, I just kept holding!
When sentiment in Gold was low it traded below $300, getting comfort from the press in your investment decisions is not profitable. Profits are made by accepting pain on the way & not following the heard.
