i have a serious question,
So far im doing pretty well with my mixed portfolio,long term and short term positions.
one particular position is bothering me a little.

Im down about 10k on YELP I am not in a  rush to sell and im not planning on buying more to average up. Its end of the year so for accounting purposes i might want to make some changes.
I believe the market took a huge pounding the past few weeks and it might be a great opportunity to get somewhere  in at cheap.
i was thinking of taking the loss for this calendar year and buying  IEP at 97 instead, to make up for the 10k loss. i really believe IEP can hit $150 within the next 12-24 months. Analyst have a 12 month target price of  $150.

i really like the way IEP handles his business .
Back two months ago when it was trading at $115  i said to myself i  should have gotten in cheaper so  i was just waiting for a drop. and i believe its the right time to get in.

so far my 2 possible choices are

a) holding on to YELP for a while hopefully they will be bought out very shortly ( maybe PCLN,AMZN,FB...)( i hope not YHOO)

or

b ) taking the loss and buying IEP instead.



I would really love to get your insight.

Pls dont just respond by saying : buy APPL or AMZN instead  . why IEP and not something else? unless you come up with something else with a valid explanation.

also,
 this position is not necessary long term  but not limited to short term either,


looking forward to  some of your responses.

thanks in advance.

do a lot of research when you want a specific strategy.  can be very confusing

youtube can teach you many basic strategies.  can be pretty helpful for beginners

What the heck!
I signed up for Robinhoods waiting list on the 13th --

Checking a few minutes ago there are still like 400k people ahead of me on that waiting list  --

But I just got an email saying that my "wait is finally over" and that I'll get my invite in the next 24 hours --
 
I've since opened an account thanks to menachem_m sharing his invites, but what's up with that waiting list??

Can't you sign up online? Does it have to be through the app?
