Default Regret not pulling the trigger? Stock Market

I was soo tempted to buy Keycorp (KEY:NYSE) 3 days ago at $8.00/share and not that it's up to $10.85 I'm kinda kicking myself

Anyone else have stores of butt loads of money they could have made if they would have followed their gut feeling.


And how about the buttloads you lost following that same guy feeling?

Yeah, look at AEP when it was around $17 or AK Steel when it was around $17.

It'd take some serious research, as well as a LOT of cells in Excel for me to calculate.

When I think back on my hesitancy to jump at google due to the dotcom crash that had gutted the 1st, and 2nd round of star internet stocks...


I did avoid a big hit by dumping Lucent shortly after they split off...

Some of the top dogs here financed Concentric on start up. Sold at the top.

Lots of money was made.

Then they watched as it spiraled out of control. The creator got in trouble for molestation and what not.

I bought Flag Star Bank just as the banking failures started.

I'm happy.

When I did my report on them for school a few years back they were heavily leveraged with mortgages. I'm kinda suprised they lasted.

I'll sell soon, but for now it's been working.

I'm putting a good amount in a Goldman Sachs BRIC fund.

Most of my money is in Franklin Templton BRIC fund

I would love to get back to "playing the market" but I just don't have the time to sit and look at stock quotes all day long so I pay some other smucks to do it

I already made my prediction on banks.

If someone is patient and has the cash to run the risk I will be suprised if they don't rebound very very strong. They all better be writing down the losses and as they roll ahead they will be posting pure profits having cut the losses.

I bought stock in a metal coatings company in '00 after playing the CNBC online stock game. It was doing well during the game so I actually bought some at around $6/share. The company was owned by college students were were developing methods of coating metals. After the group graduated they put their company up for sale and I got a letter saying the buyers are interested in my shares. I paid around $30 for what I bought and sold it for almost $700. Nothing big, but it was my first time.

My ex bought utilities stock for our IRAs. Guess what utility we had. Enron. WooHoo. I cashed mine out, paid the IRS a fee. He waited it out and lost every penny of his IRA.
