    I enjoy Emmett and wouldn't dream of saying anything negative to him but I had an evil and ruthless moment earlier this week when I refrained from posting in an introduction thread of a guy who rolled into the the site, mentioned he lost his job, and plans to make up his salary with day trading. Truth be told, I should be banned for that behavior.

    :D

    I find that guy extremely interesting. He is a very nice man. At the moment, he is acting like an egomaniacal asshole. I have full confidence he will settle down, once he loses a bunch of money and discovers his mortality.

    I'm no expert. If I could pick all the right stocks, times perfectly to buy low and sell high....you think I would be here? I would degrade on RobinHood, while living in Thailand. None of my ex's would be able to collect a.dime.from.me. And I would be a legend on an adult hobby forum.

    He is dry humping a penny stock pharmaceutical. And not getting extra $600 to stay home.

    My broker EF Hutton says.....If you put $5 million in @ 5¢ per share; you make $1,000,000 with each penny.

    Investing is usually better because you have a long-time horizon (depending on your age and finances) and a lot of time to make a decision.

    Trying to use stocks to create a monthly income is much different unless you are charging people a service for like an investing service... but that isn't stock investing or even trading.

    Well, would you look at that? 52% investors, 12 total as of today. And at one point we were under the impression that there were only two investors on here, @TomB16 and @WXYZ .
