Ended up with 25 cents.
Did they send you a check, cash, or postage stamps?

I got it through the state of NY via a check from funds that I was due from lost money!! Last year I was looking around a website missing and found out I was due something like 77 dollars. I did all the paperwork and then sent it in 6 months later I get a check from the state of NY with a list of what the money was from. It was listed along with some other small things that I guess from moving and not having the mail get to me.

I know it's not polite to correct spelling and grammar, but "Loosing" your ass is kind of disgusting. Then you talk about success at the "craps" table. And, just how do you pronounce your name, anyway?
No worry, it should have read loooooosing your a$$. (as is assests.) Depending on your accent it will sound like Anes.

I would think that your time would be better spent reading about investing (if nothing else, read these boards). Following penny stocks will take more time than you can imagine. It's going to be more exciting than working on asset allocation, but in the long run, it's not going to be as fruitful--IMHO. I know of only one person who made a tremendous amount of money on a penny stock (actually, it was a low price stock) and he's given a bunch of it back. Everyone else I know that did well in the stock market had long-term plan and pretty much followed it.

That said, somewhat like unclemick, I have recently bought two individual stocks, for trading purposes, just to satisfy the hormones (mine, not unclemick's). Both of these stocks are not penny nor low-priced nor do I have much of a financial investment in either. And, I only did this after putting a bunch of money in pssst, Wellesely.

Oh, one other thing: The money you lose with penny stocks could have been growing for you for the next 30-50 years. That's a lot of time to make that money work for you. And, once you use up time, it's gone. Damn, wish I knew (and understood) that 40 years ago.
