As for how the IPO goes the general thinking is you get the initial spike then at some point there is a pullback and that is a good time to jump in. No guarantee of that though. I talked to my guy this morning and we agreed to buy at 35.
How much of the price move is hype and how much is true value of the company? Example would be Facebook vs. Noodles & Co. which both IPO'd recently. Facebook fell flat after a few days because people didn't agree with the valuation. Noodles and Co went ballistic and actually is staying near the peak price.

I agree that $30,000 is far too much to have in savings. If you have a secure income, you are just wasting money by not getting interest. It's not like you can't get the money out if a true emergency happens, you just run the risk of losing some of the principle.

I have about one paycheck in my checking account, no savings account, everything else invested. As I have stated in the past though, I probably wouldn't recommend that following my actions, but it gives you a comparison point.

Also depends how steady your expenses are. I control my expenses very well and they are very predictable.

As far as Twitter goes, I think it's an interesting stock but the valuation is crazy right now. Jim Cramer has recommended not buying at a market cap of above $20b, I think I will stick to that if I decide I want some.

I'm starting a Roth IRA next month. Nothing huge, just a few thousand to start out and then maybe automatics contributions of $100 a paycheck. What's a good website to research different brokerage options?

studies have shown that stock symbols that are pronounceable in english such as WUBA, OCIP, and LEAF outperform their more complex counterparts like BRX and SRLP. post-IPO, the pronounceable stocks outperformed. interesting read on psychology and currency.

I have noticed a mix with IPO's. They either do really well or really bad on the first day.

I may consider Ebay just from everyone going out and buying a PS4 and Xbox One to try and sell. Ebay takes 10% of the cut, which is a nice $52 a listing so far for the PS4.

As of right now, $7000 is my total investment from just about 1 year ago, give or take 30 days.

Total return is 100% as of today. Before this shitstorm of a month I was up 160%. Pharmaceutical companies will shrink your balls on a regular basis.

INO (+300%)
KERX (+106%)
ONCS (+32%)
GALE (piece of **** was up 200%+ now it's down 11%)

Got a few losers as well, of course. But luckily it was just a few hundred, if that, on each one.

VICL
ACTC (just threw my last $100 at it because **** it)
AEZS

I usually like to buy x amount of shares so the dollar amount can vary. Somewhere between 6-8k.

Everyone made money last year. The disclaimer will also tell you past performance is not guarantee of future results. In the long run the stock market is the place to invest but you need to be able to sleep at night when they're down.

Everyone made money last year. The disclaimer will also tell you past performance is not guarantee of future results. In the long run the stock market is the place to invest but you need to be able to sleep at night when they're down.
There has never been a 10 year span where the market has gone down in its existence.

Probably depends on what dates you're looking at. When the market was in the toilet in 2009 it was significantly lower than it was in 1999. Having said that you can't touch stocks for being the best place to make money over the long haul.

I have lost out on a lot of profits by not being in the market the last few months. All the signs have led to, what I believed, as a big drop in the market yet it still goes up.
