Before or after trading costs? How much in dollars? And would you have posted if your losses exceeded your gains?

IMO this kind of thread as the potential to encourage self-destructive behavior as it will tend to be dominated by people crowing about winners when, statistically, amateur stock picking is a losing game, as is the vast majority of professional stock picking. BTDT, got the tee shirt, and eventually learned my lesson -- with embarrassing slowness, I'll admit. It is such fun!

DRAD +2.17%

I believe it went up over 1% since I posted this tip earlier today, on a down-market day. The event that made it a mover occurred two days ago and volatility has settled down. The price should now move more with the general market and the medical equipment industry.

IJJ (ISHARES S&P MIDCAP 400 VALUE ETF) -.38%

I hear you have to hold value stocks at least 10 years for them to pay off, though I think that's misleading. I was swayed to buy when Fidelity's analysis suggested I may want more mid cap and/or more value.

My gains barely exceeded my losses.
Gained $718.00 on my 200 shares FSLR & lost $703.93 on my 809 shares of CNSL.

As far as trading costs, there wasn't any, I'm not a day trader.

It's all in fun.

If you don't care for the thread, & think it encourages self-destructive behavior, you should probably just avoid it.

And it is fun. As long as people know that and treat it as such, I have no issue.

But IMO not everyone understands that. Just like some people go to a casino to have fun, but others actually think it is a good way to make money. It's a complete mystery to me, but my multimillionaire business partner/friend goes to the casino for fun and drops a few hundred bucks. He can afford it. He also trades individual stocks. He can afford that too, so I have no issue.

ABC was my big winner yesterday, up $3.86 or 4.67%.
Biggest loser was the same as ownyourfuture above, Realty Income (O). Fortunately we own a lot more ABC!

Biggest winner of the day: company I did not watch.
Biggest loser of the day: company I watched.

Bought ADM after a significant drop in price.

Watching FTR shares, which were a spinoff from something or other, plummet into the void. They may be moving into buggy whips soon.

Frontierís board of directors has approved a reverse stock split of Frontier common stock, and plans to hold a shareholder vote at the May 2017 annual meeting for approval. The reverse stock split ratio will be between 1-for-10 and 1-for-25, with the board designing the final ratio without 90 days post shareholder approval. Frontierís 11.125% Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock will be adjusted proportionately.
