Re: Newbie question about my stock in Amazon...

I mostly follow SeekingAlpha articles and I read the comments people write on there and base it off the mutual consensus of whether or not a company is worth what it's priced at. I'm still currently reading Bogleheads I'm about halfway just trying to find the time to finish it. The picture overall i...

Re: Newbie question about my stock in Amazon...

Here's an interesting read on what to make of Amazon and others -- m Great article just curious how did you hear about ...

Re: Newbie question about my stock in Amazon...

Haha yeah... I ended up selling half the stock I owned at $1020 for a profit and of course it got all the way up to $1080 so that sucked I sold early (who knew). However looks like it was short lived because as I'm sure you all know the stock kept tumbling down after Q2 earnings. Either way it was a...

Re: Newbie question about my stock in Amazon...

I can't believe the amount of people who have responded here, I had a feeling I would get flamed for being a newbie (and in some ways I did), but the great advice I've gotten from the majority of you has helped me greatly words cannot explain. I appreciate the words of encouragement and the words of...

Re: Newbie question about my stock in Amazon...

I personally invest most of my money into mutual funds like VTSAX and SWTSX and VINIX to hold true to the boglehead way of life. However I have about 12% of my portfolio in a few individual stocks I have a particular conviction in (Amazon being one of them) I personally feel that Amazon might do we...

When I bought it the stock was on the incline, I believe in the company I was buying. Next day the stock tanked 10% and just now with news of the Whole Foods acquisition the stock r...

Re: Newbie question about my stock in Amazon...

When you make an investment, generally it should be for the long term. A few weeks is much too short of a time to judge most investments. Amazon's all time high is $1,017 and right now it is $995 so you could only possibly be down a little over 2% at the most. That is a normal intraday fluctuation ...
