    Just posted this in another thread. I love playing around with a few bucks in the stock market. Nothing crazy just a handful of stocks with always 10 g or less. I rake the profit and keep the 10G rolling.

    Couple of winners of the past few years was Smith and Wesson. Bought around $3 and sold at $12 something
    Wendys was a recent one got it at 4.80 ish and sold the other day at over $11. Huntington Bank at $6 now at 10.40 with a 3% yield.

    I look for stocks below $10 that have a decent PE and the holy grail is a nice yield.

    That being said... Im betting that oil has had to reach the bottom or near it. It has never not gone back up

    They are at an all time low... if you have the cash BUY BUY BUY not just Exxon and the usual but other providers midsized.

    I cant imagine it can last.... but again it may.

    EPE for instance. MPO is another I've gone long on with a few G, upside is crazy and down side is limited to a few bucks. Be careful of the debt ratio though. A bunch of these guys are very leveraged and with low PPB they are a house of cards.


    You folks have any stocks that you like?

    If I'm gonna gamble, I prefer blackjack. I had some Worldcom stock in high school.

    If anybody is looking for a sign that the stock market is ready to cool off for a bit, a the first Dawgshed stock thread might just be it.

    FWIW, I like to invest in REITs.

    I hear it makes great wallpaper. Oh, and you can wrap that leftover bean burrito from Taco Bell in it as well.

    If the Russian market rebounds, as I believe it will, I like QIWI long.

    But I mostly go with mutual funds because I'm too busy to invest in actual stocks. It requires far too much research. But I have a large portfolio, with only about 10 total stocks. The rest are a variety of mutual funds with most of my money currently going into biotech and has for the past 4 years.

    Bought VPOR last week at .0015/share. Made it up to .0035 yesterday and has retraced downward. Will hold for six months.

    Well, for starters, the share price itself has nothing to do with anything. It's a function of the number of shares outstanding vs the value of the company and its future income, so it could be 10 shares at $30 or 100 at $3, it won't affect the rise or fall. So feel free to choose any stock that meets your other criteria.

    Low P/E's can be a sign of value. Or a sign others know the compan is in decline for a good reason. Or a company had one-time bad results in the quarter it's based on. You have to dig further. P/E are elevated curently in general due to low interest rates and with Ukraine, rates supposedly rising at the Fed, and fundamentals in the economy not as good as the market prices would indicate, buying any stock now has elevated risk. But yeah, oil is a better bet than say some tech stock right now. Because it's already had a big drop.

    If you like ETF's and a little leverage DIG is up about 15%-20% since a month or so ago when I purchased some. That's an oil play. Or you can invest in the index itself with no leverage (IYE)

    Top Ten Holdings
    1. Exxon Mobil Corporation XOM: 22.89%
    2. Chevron Corp CVX: 11.98%
    3. Schlumberger NV SLB: 6.56%
    4. ConocoPhillips COP: 4.79%
    5. Kinder Morgan, Inc. KMI: 4.31%
    6. Occidental Petroleum Corp OXY: 3.84%
    7. EOG Resources Inc EOG: 3.02%
    8. Anadarko Petroleum Corp APC: 2.56%
    9. Phillips 66 PSX: 2.41%
    10. Halliburton Co HAL: 2.10%
    There are different ways to play oil. Upstream producers, who have fields and get it out of the ground, or the companies that service them, such as Schlumberger (SLB), who, as long as they're adding wells/fields, and expanding production, will do well regardless of the price. They took a huge hit in the downturn as producers shut down production and don't need their services. But if things go back up they'd go up quickly. They are also up about 15% since the low, but with no leverage required.

    I think there is little doubt low oil prices are temporary, but the question is how long till they rise again. Could be this year, could be 5 years from now, I don't really know. This is why you want to make the play based on the general oil price, not specific companies that could have bad results even if oil were rising. (hedging, unrest, type of oil soure, etc). Too hard for an amateur to research all that.

    Out of favor major producer gold miners also have tremendous upside, but they have disappointed for years.

    Spirit Airlines just exceeded expectations on their quarterly because of exceedingly low fuel costs. (ditto Jet Blue the prior week.). If you look at the chart of Spirit/SAVE, you'll note that if they breech the $85 long standing resistance area, and not pull back, it's a nice jaunt up from there since its a 4 year high with virtually little or no overhead resistance. Presently trading at 81.90 up 1.35 for the day. Why am I mentioning this? Because I have some call orders until acting just that and the more buying pressure the better :)
