Why won't this work?

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

In high school we played this investing game. You start off with $1M and at the end of the month you see what kind of gains or losses the class makes. I just searched for undervalued stocks and other stocks that always perform. It felt good when I came in first place. But now I'm a wagecuck and have nothing :(

It won't work because speculation and performance are already priced into those stocks. That being said, it might work, it's just not some foolproof plan. NFLX is highly susceptible to stagnation and "flavor of the month" subscribers jumping to competition.

PCLN is the same. They have a long way down to go, and not much more they could innovate. They're at their full potential for use cases. It is very possible some kind of advancement renders them obsolete.

AMZN is a good bet, but you're buying at the top so be prepared to hold for a while. They have an incredible infrastructure and user base in place and their profits have gone from non-existant to steadily improving. Best of all, there's plenty of innovations they have yet to make. They could launch their own brands of products, software, stores, marketing data, etc. I know they already do some of this, but they've barely scratched the surface of their potential.


just my uneducated two cents.

Most of the value in active management comes from minimizing losses during down markets. Beating the lows is much easier than beating the highs.

Amazon has room for growth despite the price, but EVERYONE knows that, and it's way too fucking expensive.

I don't like the rest.

Netflix has a market that is highly vulnerable to competition.

We did that too. I invested everything into a pennystock which droped 75% of it's value in the first day and never regained.

penny stocks are pump and dump schemes

Half the girls in this damn world are pump and dump schemes man. Go with it.

Enjoy getting cucked by the dumpster

See you are the type of guy to fall for the pump and dump rather than using it. YOU enjoy being cucked by the dumpster, and I'll enjoy pumping that sucker for all she's got. Let me know how your savings is doing in 10 years!
