Apple ($161) investor Mick: For people who bought at $200+ are you holding or going to sell? I am holding but getting very stressed about it.
Micron ($31) investor Sam: I have 100 at $41. That sweet spot where I'm not sure what to do. can't average down till I know there's a bottom. can't sell at this price. guess I'll wait and see.
Fedex ($162) Investor George: Oh Dear God, this is an after hours disaster.

Ali - It's official. Family members will be getting empty boxes with Tilray wordings in it.
Kerry- do hope this continues to rise! it's been a fun roller coaster ride but it's making me nauseous! 😉
Eagle One- AMD ($18) I could not have had a worse day than this - a 7% drop is more than digestible. However my sister who has been fighting cancer for the last fifteen months was today admitted to hospital for emergency surgery. It's the 13th medical intervention and I pray for her good health which she so bravely is fighting for. I kindly solicit ten seconds of your precious time for a considered thought for those who are suffering in this time who many celebrate in good health with their loved ones. God bless you all.
I'm glad these people can keep their sense of humor as they watch their savings go down the toilet. I love the term "investor" and the assumption that investing "long term" pays off.
The term should be "speculator" and buying and holding is a disastrous strategy.
The prospect of "money for nothing" is a temptation few people can resist. Unfortunately, your money turns into nothing. I like Seinfeld's line: "Instead of putting my money to work, I'll work and let my money stay at home." There is a moral there. Should we want money we haven't earned?
Clearly the stock market is not about investing. It is gambling. You can make money whether it goes up or down. Gambling is as serious an addiction as cocaine or porn. People are hooked on the warm fuzzy feeling they get when a stock goes their way, and the poke in the stomach when it doesn't.
Furthermore the market unites everyone on the level of greed. We all vibrate to the same tune.
It dehumanizes and degrades us.
Restricting the stock market to one day a week would go a long way to restoring peace to this tortured planet and raising our true standard of living.
