    Default Investing: Even for small-scale investors

    So recently I've been giving thought to the stock market. I don't have thousands to invest in, so I was looking for a broker with no starting minimum nor high trading feeds.


    So, right now I'm adopting a medium-risk strategy that consists of maximizing shares with a short amount of money. At this point I can only spare around $100 a month, so it's an all-in transaction, dumping $100 in shares in a company that has a promising future or that is severely undervalued. You won't be making money in the short term, unless the stock skyrockets; but you are most likely going to get a huge return on those $100 than by just putting them in the bank.

    For example, the downgrade of European debt for Spain and Italy had an impact on some important companies here, making the price to which they fell more than standard appeal to buy and hold for a couple of months.

    I won't be posting names of the ones I think are sleeping giants just yet, mainly because my bank account is not completely set up with the broker.

    I'm also thinking about starting a blog in order to "document" how this will turn out, as well as some advice, especially for small investors, extremely small even.

    What do you think OT?

    Yes, but not on a company that's not moving money at all. I would've found the way to get a piece of it if it had acquired the company it was intending to acquire, and seemed to be moving some land. It looks like it's just sitting there, not doing much.

    I'll try to elaborate. It looks like it's sitting on a new mine rather than hitting anything. The stock might be undervalued, if it were to hit a new mine anytime soon, and it would still be worth little because of the longevity of the process.

    I'm all for waiting 2-5 years to have a stock appreciate to $100. But by the looks of it it'd take a miracle for them to get out of that hole for now.

    Plus, if they are just sitting on the gold instead of selling it to invest in themselves or another venture, there is something wrong there.

    Ahh, it's basically only doing exploration right now. Won't be surprised to see them get bought up so all their holdings can get shipped to china while our country burns.

    That means nothing really, when so much of their money has been going into exlporation/development, as opposed to the payoff. I duno, i like them longterm, i'd look at the shit their reporting first and foremost. The ring of fire projects are going to make them alot of money once developed.

    Lol I'd only invest in them if I knew they were sitting on enough gold to give me a return on ANYTHING.


    But it looks like they are REALLY struggling.
