    POET Technologies

    Exchange : Over-the-counter (OTC)

    Symbol : POETF

    I was going to post this last month when the share price was under a $1.00 but a lot of investors have an aversion to investing in companies at that share price.

    Financial professionals only consider stocks with a share price of at least $1.00. This is a good time to pass this along.

    I like this stock. I owned at .07 a share and sold at .26 a share. I personally think its over valued at it's current .11 a share. Wait until it is back around .05, it will go back there. Stock is extremely volatile also so not for the restless. Every time there is any kind of pot hype the stock pops though.

    How about telling us what they make, and why you like them?

    Woohoo! Opportunity to reference the only other forum I frequent: Bogleheads.org. Passive index investing, because picking winners is a loser's game. Boglehead principles probably don't have much traction among gamblers since we are all convinced we can pick the winners. In the end, it's the fees that matter.

    Passive index investing is fine - unless you have the time, energy, conviction and understanding to research companies and invest directly and cut out the fees.
    Its hard word though and its tough to be able to research a company and then admit you don't understand it.

    then theres the timing... arrrrrggggg



    anyway I invest direct, have very few holdings, hold for a long time and my natural procrastination helps me out as I want to hold stocks for a long time...

    otherwise yeah - go with a low fee index..

    This is another major tenet of passive index investing. Timing the market is risky business. You not only have to be right once (when to buy) but you have to be right twice (when to bail). Then you have to be right again (when to get back in).

    Just like religion, I've long given up on trying to convince people on passive index investing. People hold onto long-held beliefs tightly and don't let go easily. You either believe or you don't. That being said, there is a lot of academic evidence that supports buy and hold index investing.

    I couldn't agree more. I have divested all my individual stocks except MO & PM. Everything else is in Vanguard funds.

    I put most of my life savings ($900) into North American Veeblefetzer stock.

    When our plant was sold to the Belgian / South Korean consortium and became part of the new Royal Canadian Veeblefetzer, my NAFZ stock was rolled into RCVZ stock.

    Jimmy Poon sold all of his, and exercised his options without telling me.

    And now, neither of those stocks are listed on the exchange.

    Never invest in a Veeblefetzer!!!!!!!!
