Got lucky again.

I'll be da**ed , Got lucky 3x now. Makes up for all my loser's.
CASY finally popped, I knew they would. Up 25% since I bought it. AAPL is still a winner for me as well. MMM tanked on me so I guess now it evens out.

I've only been lucky 3x. AAPL and CASY, with MMM up 1% since I bought. Sold XOM, CAT, TASR, UNP at losses lol. Nothing signifigant but hey I was doing some tax loss harvesting as well

I am guessing with the summer season in full swing they will end with a nice year. CASY is a midwest gas station that also sells pizza. I wanted Pizza exposure, so this is what my analysis brought me to. I should have bought PZZA but hindsight is 20/20

So did you sell CASY? Or are you counting your lucky chickens before they actually hatched?

Lots of things are up about that much since the December lows. Even the Total Stock Market Index fund is up 24% through yesterday. It seems that perhaps everybody got lucky.
