    I really don't research this stuff.

    It would be fun to plunk down some money for ten shares of Sodastream (SODA) and see where that would get me, though. Can they increase sales in this economy?

    Plus, a nice dividend stock like Seacube (BOX), might be nice. Shipping stuff in containers around will never get old.

    Forget trying to pick one stock- you'd do better buying lottery tickets.

    You're better off with a low cost INDEX mutual fund or ETF - Like Vanguards Total Stock Market Index. Or if you want total worldwide diversification try Vanguard total World Index fund.

    Eh, well it's all a far off dream for me, anyways.

    Still, it's nice to know when you can pic 'em. And some people really can.

    I'm staying away from stocks.
    I just sold some stuff in my IRA account and bought shares in a gold fund on the American Stock exchange.It mirrors the price of gold.My plan is to hold it for 10 years.I'm very curious to see where gold is 10 years from now.

    I think gold will be around $2,000 10 years from now. That's a total wild-assed guess, though.

    I recall something a guy who was in Sarajevo once told me about life there in 1993-4, after complete societal breakdown. You could buy anything...food, guns, women,cars...if you had a few rolls of toilet paper.

    Buy toilet paper companies. Everyone has to poop no matter what happens.

    There isn't just one, though. :lol:

    I mean, Proctor & Gamble has Charmin and the ass-wiping bears.

    Food. Water. Shelter. Self-defense.

    Those are what you should be "stocking" up on.
