Penny and high volatility stocks can be very rewarding investments but not without research and analysis, otherwise it's just slot machines of which you can also say "risky and very rewarding..."

TWGP is an insurance company that took a huge hit after Sandy. they were $22 in June and now at $2.85
They are on their way up, it might be worth buying 1k shares.
Why did it take until June for their stock to plummet? In other words, the stock fell significantly directly after Sandy, but the real plunge only happened in June..? Any explanation for this that I'm unaware of?

TWGP dropped because there was fraudulent accounting taking place. I guess you get what you pay for. I would however, like to pass along a good investment idea. O realty(REIT) has recently dropped from highs of 55 to 37. At 37 it is very attractively valued. it has a annual dividend of 5.6%. Analysts are predicting a big upswing in price in the next month. Buy O long.

Afsi bought twgp
For $3 a share. Would there be a reason to hold onto the stock untill the summer? Won't it just hover around $3 untill then?

Which brokerage you using? do you buy directly from the firm?
I want to know if I should buy vanguard funds from them directly (they have annual $20 account fee) or do you buy from TDbank for example and (I think) you don't pay the $20 fee
How is it adding funds when using a broker do u pay fees every time
Thanx

You can open an on line brokerage account. [ I use Tradeking. Only $5 a trade.] You can buy the indexes without being in a 'fund'.

i happen to use fidelity for that stuff, but vanguard is great. I believe that fee is waived if you agree to have electronic statments. Make a brokerage account there instead of a mutual fund account there and use there index ETFs, which often have even lower expense ratios than their mutual funds.
Transferring funds is generally free with ACH transfer but it takes a few days, as opposed to wire which often has fee but is same day.

I don't think so. The buyout is contingent on a review of the TWGP books. If there are any discrepancies, or evidence that their books were doctored (which certain people do believe), the sale will be off, which will in turn drive the stock down. In summary, I would wait to buy (or sell until, and buy back after) the sale is complete.
