re: What stop-limit do ya'll typically use? - fasdit on 4/9/15 at 2:29 pm
Let's assume I want to buy $1000 of Twitter stock. The future of this company is not entirely sound at this point because while they are popular and growing on the stock market, they have high operating expenses and have never posted a profit. It's trading around $52 right now. What is a good st...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
What stop-limit do ya'll typically use? - fasdit on 4/8/15 at 10:55 pm
First of all I realize the answer will vary depending on numerous variables such as company fundamentals, volatility, holding period, number of shares, etc. I am searching for recommendations on unacceptable percentage of loss for a tech stock with a planned holding period of 1 - 3 years. Fo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Is Twitter a buy? - fasdit on 2/8/15 at 6:54 pm
Update On Friday Twitter stock shot up 16% - one day after the release of quarterly earnings. Their revenue doubled from the previous quarter and substantially exceeded estimates. And most of the gains were from increased ad revenue. What is more interesting from the report is that user base...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Is Twitter a buy? - fasdit on 1/24/15 at 10:20 am
I have been watching Twitter closely for the past 3 months and am considering buying and holding for 1 to 3 yeras. The price appears to be stabilizing around $40. A quick summary of the facts. 1. Twitter has not made a profit since IPO, but is narrowing the gap between break even. 2. Twitte...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Tax Deduction - New Laptop - fasdit on 10/10/13 at 11:33 am
Does anyone have experience taking the price of a new laptop as a tax deduction? More specifically a laptop that is used 50% of the time for work and 50% of the time for personal. I will be purchasing a new one before the end of the year at around $1200. I understand that if I was running a smal...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

I'm not suggesting that they would necessarily jack their spread that high though.

Update. I've ruled out the Delta AMEX Gold as a choice. Apparently they recently ditched the $99/yr companion credit for airline tickets.
