I'd short it an hour ago, it trades at 75x earnings. Crazy.

It's a bubble.  It was overvalued even at the IPO set price. 
What do you do after your dreams come true?

I have a question.  I hold a fund, AONIX, conservative allocation (fund of funds but no added layer of expense).  All the rating companies rate it low--Morningstar, for example, gives it two stars.  But when I look at the five star funds in this class, their risk profile is much higher than AONIX.  Look at BERIX, for example.  Solid fund, relatively lower risk, but its overall risk is somewhat higher than AONIX.  How can Morningstar compare a 2 risk fund with a 4/5 risk fund, even if they are classified in the same investment style?  I ask because it seems that AONIX is a solid fund for what its supposed to do, but no one will agree with me.

On a different note, does anyone hold SICNX?  Seems like a solid player as of late, against OAKIX, which I hold, and which is supposed to be solid.

VWINX is the non-institutional class.

I'm not sure if this is the right place for it but here goes:

I have $5500 in a Roth IRA with Chuck Schwab.
I want to put it in to something that is safe yet will earn. I don't want to pay any fees or service charges or anything. Just put it in and forget about it for 30 years (other than adding to the overall account every December).

Does anyone have any advice? (Assume I have zero/limited experience with market terms and rules).

How safe do you need? An index fund is usually the way to go for your situation, check out DIA or SPY.

instead of IRA i bought BRK.B
i find it a very stable stock with limit or no risk involved and has a record of beating the market on a downfall
