What do you guys think about GoPro?  They are making $ but they are also a 1 trick pony.

I wouldn't buy long term into any camera companies. They're on the road to oblivion.

What makes you say that?  Yes, its true that cell phones are hurting the point and shoot market, but DSLR cameras will never be replaced by smartphones, at least not the ones manufactured today.  Further, at least or the time being, you cannot accomplish what the GoPro does with anything else (except of course some competitors similar products which are not as good).  Still, I am concerned about buying a 1 trick pony.

vanguard, fidelity.

look for a low cost fund. they will have tools that let you sort based on risk/"reward"/cost factors. Check out websites like kiplinger for recommendations.

You can choose a sector of the market that you think overall will perform better or pick a fund that tracks the overall market.

why is it hot? expenses are high and returns have not been spectacular compared to the market

5.5% sales charge is taking money right off the top. then an expense ratio of nearly 3%

there are funds that have no sales charge, under 1% expense ratio and have a history of beating the market.

Does anyone know if there are restrictions for the sale of GoPro stock purchased at IPO?  I know that sometimes companies place restrictions on sale of stock at IPO.

Nope. You can sell the day it opens with no penalty. I enquired already.
