its not too late. either way if you can get some income on the books it may be even more worthwhile to open an ira/rothira and get the savers credit.
+1 The savers credit on the Roth IRA is amazing. Basically you get a tax credit to put money into an account that will never pay taxes (assuming the laws aren't changed). The kicker is that if you have a low enough income for the full savers credit you probably aren't paying much in taxes anyway. Plus with a Roth you can withdraw principle whenever you want and earnings for qualified expenses like purchase of a home, education or healthcare.

I consider it like an instant 50% (or 10% ROI) with the only downside being the ira/rothira or 401k/roth401k limitations

Does the ridiculous run of GoPro cause anyone else to consider shorting it?

$GTAT (the sapphire glass maker) is up almost 3%, might be a good stock to short, not too many reports (as of late) that the iPhone 6 will be sapphire


Win!
+90%

Trade king is a great safe place to buy and sell stocks. They are currently offering a $50 sign up bonus for new customers (if you email me, I will send you the link to sign up and I'll get $50 too- hebs89@gmail.com). They charge below market price per trade- $4.95.

I hate all these analysts so are so dumb. I followed one stock and every 3 days they changed their opinion on a stock.
The only way to invest is with Benjamin Graham's method.

Just some advice. Never buy the next HOT thing on the market. Buy good companies that are run well.......

Because it is/was a good company that is/was run well.

which brings us to a dilemma

Just some advice. Never buy the next HOT thing on the market. Buy good companies that are run well.......

What happens if its both hot and good?!

You know people always say lets by BABA and all these companies that have just been listed. Lets buy the next Microsoft because if you would've bought $1000 worth of shares when it came out you wouldn't have to work another day in your life. They have made studies certain years if you would've bought all these new IPO's you would've been down %25 more than the average market.
