AUPH up to 9 USD (+17%) already today. Glad that I bought in last week when it was stable at ~7.70 USD. Thanks for the tip, ColdPizza.

Just don't be mad at me if this dips back down from here. =)

I suspect their latest offering is closing today, hence the move up.

Hoping this will test new highs later this week.

I'd be fine with it hanging out here for a couple weeks, my puts expire in 32 days.

Is it still a good time to get nVidia?

Now that we know they're doing the Switch chips? Nvidia has been on a constant rise for a year now.

What's the infleunce of the new AMD stuff (Ryzen, Vega) on them? They are too stable right?

And isn't it a pretty bad time for Vega? I got the feeling that everyone bought new graphics cards last year and there won't be low end Vega cards, right?

Yes i think nvidia is a good buy for long term but not because of the reasons you have listed lol i dont think couple of million more switch sell will change their outcome but their work in automobile will start to pay off.

I thought this graph was kinda interesting. It shows how long we've gone without even a 5-10% correction.

Tomorrow might be the trigger of the GOP can't push their health care package. We need a 5 to 10 percent pullback as the market has run too high since election. Well the USA market at least. I still think developed overseas and a little emerging market is where to be right now but I could be wrong.

I expect the bill to pass though, unless there are huge developments tomorrow that would make the GOP want to distance themselves from Trump in every imaginable aspects. Doubtful that would happen tomorrow.

It is really hard to time the crash, every quarter someone predicted a crash and yet it been going up every year. May be Obama just did fine job of building our economy.

If I have to make a bet, the crash will probably happen 1 or 2 years after the tax cut and deregulation actually happened.

Anyone remember what stocks performs relatively well during the previous crash? Wasn't it McDonald, Walmart, and a few food companies?

Wanted to get your guys opinon on this.
I've been socking all my extra cash in ally for an emergency fund. I'm reaching close to 20k and am investing $500/mo in robinhood. I was thinking about moving half of that emergency fund into investments so it could earn more than 1%. I was thinking one of the Vanguard funds. Any advice?

Have a look at http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=749978

Take a certain amount of income as an emergency fund like you have now (I do 6 months of expenses). The rest goes into investments.

Vanguard funds are good and cheap. I am in their Total Market and S&P 500 ETFs. Depends a bit on your goals though. Is this for the very long term, or do you plan to use the money sooner? That might impact if you just throw it all in now or not.

This is pretty long term, as I don't really have a need for the money minus catastrophe. I'm already maxing out Roth IRA and 401k and investing in RobinHood on the side. Just wanted to put my extra money to work.

Look at I Bond Treasury direct. I did not own any myself, but the inflation one is 2.7%. You can't withdraw it within 12 months, 3 months interest penalty if withdraw less than 5 years. The interest in Federal taxable but no state tax.

There's a 10k purchase limit per SSN per year, so layer it out by buying some every 6 months so not all your money are locked at the same time.

Watch out over the next two weeks, it's extremely unlikely that Trump's big infrastructure bill can go through with what happened this week, so the markets are likely to tank.

I don't think you understood the graph.
The top row isn't always small caps the order is colour coded to the different investment types, top row being the best performer in a given time frame.
The entire point of the table is to show how important it is to diversify and not put everything into an S&P500 ETF.

ETFs are more tax efficient so that's what you want.
