Financial stocks... They've been beaten up so bad. Some are making a comeback.

You're holding shares in terrible industry groups, or did you just buy them recently??

What do you guys think of Starbucks(SBUX)?

My friend deals with stock as his job after retirement, and he suggested this to me.

I monitored SBUX for a few days, and i don't see anything special. What do you guys think?

my next door neighbor's daughter worked at google before it went public and bought shares at .40cents each. my neighbor said at some point it reached $6xx. she still has some but sold alot around high $5xx to pay off college tuition. she now lives near silicon valley and continues to work for google.

my neighbor is about 77 years old in amazing health is retired has the house next to mine which is about $650k in value and another upper west side of city which he spends most of the time.

he said i can have stock lessons from him during summer so im taking that. he is a great man with alot of knowledge/wisdom. i respect him very much. he was a physics teacher at columbia and also taught at the community college near me and now is retired and does stock still making $$.

That's a tough one to answer. It depends upon your risk tolerance and how much money you have. I personally tell people to start with Mutual Funds. They are professionally managed. After you have a steady and consistent Mutual Fund saving plan then take some disposable income and try your luck with stocks.
Most brokerages require between $2,500-10,000 to open an account. I would advise practicing picks (stocks) and seeing how you do. Once you are comfortable- jump in!

If you are just starting out in investing in stocks I recommend you do some research. The WWW is one of the best source of information you can really use. If you don't want to invest in a broker and want to get your feet wet try online tools such at ameritrade, e-trade or so many others that I can't think of at this moment. I don't believe there is a minimun charge but you do have to pay for each transactoin fee. Usually, ameritrade and e-trade will give you so much trade free in the beginning. Just so you know stock market is really just like gambling, think of it as blackjack it has rules and laws if you play your cards right you have the highest percentage of winning.
One stock I will give you to play with swks, go day-trade that tomorrow.

hey guys lets have a stock competition. This kind of gotten me back interested in investing. Lets like pick a stock of the month Large cap, mid, small whatever and see who has the largest percentage gain. I think it would be interesting and gives one something to brag about. no wager of course just bragging rights. What do you think?

SBUX looks like they could go either way over the next few days, but on the 1year chart it's ready to come down strong. It has good fundamentals, but it's in a terrible industry group.

Quote:
SEATTLE, Apr 08, 2008 (Dow Jones Commodities News via Comtex) --
Hundreds of coffee-obsessed consumers chimed in moments after Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) launched a Web site asking customers to pitch changes the company should make to revive its struggling U.S. business.
Quote:
Apr 09, 2008 (Dow Jones Commodities News Select via Comtex) --
By Matt Andrejczak

Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) has terminated a license deal that involves 45 sites located inside supermarkets in Northern California and Nevada.

Starbucks plans to close coffee stands at Save Mart Supermarket and Lucky Supermarket locations. The process, which has already started, will be completed in the coming weeks, said Starbucks spokeswoman Bridget Baker.

"We decided not to renew that license," Baker said. "We decided it wasn't the right thing for our business at this time."

She said the 45 stores aren't part of the 100 U.S. stores Starbucks has pledged to shut down by September.

mmm.. I wouldn't recommend giving your money to a broker, because half of them don't know how to trade at all. If they do make a 10% or more profit, they feel that their job is complete and they will let your money sit there all year long.

Basically having a thread where everyone picks a stock on the 1st of the month that they think will give them the most profit?? Paper trading I assume??
During the summer I am down with seeing who can make the greatest % profit in a month/week.
