    I read a lot about equities keep current with the markets daily. Curious to see what stocks some of you are invested in or are currently looking to take a position with. Can be long or short, any exchange it doesn't matter.

    I recently invested in:

    Celgene (CELG). Biotech that I have followed for years. Solid, aggressive play.

    Broadcom (BRCM). Analysts love it and they are a big player and drive a lot of wireless/mobile tech, networking, infrastructure.

    Rio Tinto (RIO). Huge mining/minerals co. based in the UK. That sector has been hammered this year. Think this has a lot of upside. Hope I am not trying to catch a falling knife.

    Will add more as time goes on as to what I am in. What are you guys buying/looking at?

    I heard having monkeys throw darts at stock picks is just as good as the analysts.

    Oh

    srs though, I stick with funds. Got some mid/large cap stuff and a sprinkle of international. I tried playing with single stocks once and it didn't go so well.
