I would like to get involved with stocks, not sure where to start I have a bunch of stock that I have not touched in 18 years. When I was younger I use to dabble but with no knowledge of what I was doing just trusting a adviser. What's the best way to get my feet wet? Are there any apps that's let u trade with fake money and build a fake portfolio?

even if there you do use one (i am sure there are) it won't compare to the emotions that can alter your judgement when you are up or down.

i should clarify that I don't necessarily think its a bad way to get your feet wet, just was throwing out the pitfall.

If you buy at these prices you won't regret it in 6-12 months from now.
Depends, I got in at around 93 6-12 months ago, see where it is now...

true. It's 20% less than it was one month ago. It will likely be up 20% in 6 months. Hence:

Personally I would've sold when it was overvalued, but still-
you made 5.3% plus 2% dividends- not a bad return and nothing you should regret in a flat market.
Give it some more time and it'll be overvalued once again.

I agree; I am in it for the long haul.
20% in 6 months, possible but not likely, definitely not steadfast.

I obviously can't put a time frame on when it'll go up 20%,
I just think that 6 months from now it won't be lower,
and in a few years from now it'll probably be at least 30-40% higher.

Thoughts on ACI? Bought at $1. Good to hold on or sell it now?
Hope you sold. http://k2radio.com/arch-coal-inc-files-for-bankruptcy/

I'm basing it on the fact that after the IPO it dropped to this amount as well.

You mean this one
AMZN doesn't follow rational thought.
Pull out whenever you feel comfortable but I wouldn't suggest buying this stock no matter how great you think the company is.
