Read the Reminiscences of a Stock Operator before talking to me. My twits are my and my dog (RIP Nov. 2015) opinions, not advice. I am often wrong and I love it. PS: I DO NOT short single stocks and I do not answer 3x ETFs questions.
I use IBD and the CAN SLIM investing system to buy top growth stocks at or near buy points to help maximize gains and minimize risk. Always do your own research, do not fight the Fed, take what the market is giving, never fall in love with a stock.
The stock market is a cesspool of horrible businesses. Scarcely 1 in a 1000 is worth examining closely. Go long MOATS. I don't like options, debt, leverage, or shorting. Go read Pat Dorsey, Bruce Greenwald, and Michael Porter. THE BIG 3
