Default Ot: I Am Rich!

I bout ONXX stock a couple of days ago.

It was at $11. somthing

Today the stock jumped $11.89


IT DOUBLED!


Too bad I only had $390 in there. But still, I am $400 dollars richer.



Should I sell it now? Or is it going to keep going up

I read the news. It said they did some new cancer trial that helps treat cancer.

Should I sell it? I think it will keep going up now, I got so lucky

Well 89 cents isn't doubling but it still is really good for a day.

I'm not a stock guy, but I'd sell it the next day.

400 dollars isnt really that much. i would hold onto it and hope it becomes a windfall. my friend bought a few thousand worth of some dollar stock once. he sold it at around 100,00 and thought he did well. that stock would have been worth over a million now if he had kept it. o well, he still made money.

yeah i would hold onto it and monitor it a little. if it doubled you might have something great, you wouldnt wanna bail out now and only have 400 to show for it. worst case you lose a few hundred.

When was the last time you made $400 without doing any work and living your life at age 16?

But the more amazing part is, I can't believe it doubled, how often does that happen?

monitor it in the morning. there will be a bunch of people looking to cash out quick which might drop the stock for a bit, but i guarentee you there will be ALOT of folks looking to jump on the wagon which might raise the price even higher...at closing time tomorrow you should definitely sell and make out like a bandit.
