Luckily I invested in all of the mentioned contractors but it will be interesting to see what happens to the stock price after one of them gets selected to build this:

I'm really new to the stock market thing but so far it's been really good to me. i guess a 3rd grader could make money in it the last couple of years though.

Did you invest in all three ? Once one gets a contract dump half of the others and invest more into the contracted company ? Seems like 3rd grade trade economics to me. Haha

Actually I invested in all 3 plus a few more. All of them are actually doing very well so there probably isn't a need to dump any. I have no idea of the stock will be affected when one is selected but will be interesting to see. smile

In the last couple years? My portfolio is up more in the last year than the previous 7 combined.

I got in right about 2 years ago. I have doubled the money I took out of savings to seed this little project. Mostly thanks to AMZN, COP and a few others. Not all of my picks did that well but for the most part they are all in the green. Much better than sitting in that savings account collecting dust and not losing money on it by not keeping up with inflation. My only regret is I didn't stick more in than I did. I have pumped it up a few times during that period.

Wow, most of my stocks are taking a big dump today. I guess I had to expect it was going to come after last week.

I always have my eye on a lot of the big pharmaceutical companies and it seems like they have all been taking a crap lately. We just need another Ebola scare to pump them back up.

Yeah, when it got up to 17k I sent my buddy who bought in at 1k to SELL! I haven't asked him if he got out. He's still way ahead even if he didn't sell. smile
