Questions. What were the "hot stocks" the experts picked this time last year? And how well did they perform against the broader market or their respective sectors? And does anybody ever do a retrospective? Just curious...

Who cares what stocks are hot, or which are not? Buying in the 'short-term' is gambling, plain and simple. If you 'need' to gamble, either go to a casino and play Blackjack or see a shrink and get help.


Buy your stocks for the long-term, and you will automatically make smarter decisions. It is not that hard to do...

Let me tell you all something! Buy Cold or Silver, our own Gov. is not just spending more than we can pay back but now printing money to cover Gov. Debt. come on People wake up. Take a good look at our US Dollar the Value is going down fast.  Many other country's wont take it, Don't believe me talk to many big shots that travel the world.  there is only three thing to invest in Gold, Silver, or if you have lots of money in your pocket buy real estate if you can afford to hold on to it.


People take a good look at what Washington is doing, they have put this country in such a bad shape we will never get out. Why simple China owns so much of the USA  that you do not know about, and has more of our dollars  than we do. When the time is right China will flood the market with US dollars and drop the Value to nothing. People wake up if the USA looses the global Value of the U.S.A. dollar and the other country's  make it so our dollar is not the pot money in the world for value  we will have the worst depression ever. Washington needs to stop borrowing money and stop spending our money NOW, The only people that will be some what ok is the ones that have something of Value to trade and that will be GOLD, SILVER or Real estate, Because Washington and the Rich in Washington are making our Dollar worthless.  If I am not right, why is it on every street you see sign in the window we buy GOLD  in the next few years you wont be able to touch GOLD or Silver . Some of the Big Boys say it could go as high as $5,000.00 to $6,000.00 Dollars. Well that's my thoughts what's yours ?  If you think I am wrong its ok But I know that the next 6 generations can't pay off the U.S.A.'s debt that Washington has created.

Ive been on the gloom and doom side for a while, but now that things have stabalized in the housing market and invintories are low and selling fast, many companies will have more security in the future, to start moving money thats been parked on the side line and investing back into the company. Even though our economy has been running on QE fuel for the last few years emplooyers are starting to hire more and confidence is beginning to rise slightly.  This will eventually create a money multiplier effect, and even if your hamburger cost $10 at least youll have a job to buy it with. China has pulled back its reins, and I dont see a threat that their economy will do what ours did a few years back, meaning a stable market for now.  I think when they do start to taper we will have a substantial pull back which will create a great buying oppourtunity.  I see a decent market ahead for investors as long as your smart enough to manage your positions a little more closely.

Here's a Wall Street story for us... future financiers...

"While college freshman Mike Deng lay brain dead after a hazing ritual gone wrong last weekend, his Pi Delta Psi "big brother" made a call from the hospital — telling others to get rid of anything that would identify them as fraternity members, court documents allege. The apparent coverup attempt was detailed in a search warrant affidavit filed by police, who ultimately seized a heap of frat regalia, along with suspected marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms and paddles, from a house in the Poconos rented by the New York City students. That's where, they say, Deng was repeatedly tackled running a gauntlet blindfolded and carrying a sand-filled backpack in the freezing dark during a fraternity gathering. The papers say that the three Baruch College students who finally took Deng, 19, to the hospital early Sunday — more than an hour after he was knocked unconscious — initially claimed the finance major was wrestling in the snow, fell backward and hit his head."


This is like... Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan Chase-level future character and ethics behavior. How many of the students involved had a job or two and were managing 19 credit hours? TONS of students can't make it home for the holidays this year because they can't afford it or there is no "home" to go home to.

most of the so called experts also said to invest in the real-estate just right before the housing bust,


they said to invest in the banks just right before they got the tax payer bailout.


it has always made me wonder who is filling their pockets?


(the corporations that got the bailouts and idiot public to invest in them on the advice of these clowns, more than likely).

Wall Street greed goes to GITMO in 2014. Without QE it will be a race to the bankruptcy filing for most business "platforms". The worst thing you can be in 2014 is-- holding a Masters Degree and unable to fare with a salary for your welfare.

The DJIA is down 130 points today yet all the pot stocks are flying high (pun intended) thanks to Colorado. LATF was up over 100% at one point today. CBIS strong too.

just like the old saying goes,


a fool and their money is always soon separated.


the past few generations have gotten too impatient to work and earn what they want, they all want it yesterday and don't want to pay anything for it,

then cry and complain about how every thing else is too expensive.


none of the current generation are willing to spend any money on anything but their fashion, vanity and entertainment,

and then as I said they will cry to no end about how everything else is too expensive.

the simple explanation of why the country's economy is and has been in such a bad condition and won't change until people get and use a little common sense,


but common sense isn't all that common any more.
