    I think a similar sort of stock report on Hasbro earlier this month described their shares as 'recession proof'.

    Hello All!

    I agree with this post...Hasbro stock should have been upgraded to Buy last year before the Transformers movie even hit the theater. This kinda reminds me of a contest between the financial professionals and chimps with a darts as to what stocks to pick. The professionals would invest money into researched funds and stocks they would pick while the chimps selections were random as they were picked out by throwing darts. Surprisingly, the chimps won the contest! Ironically, this story was told to me in my Accounting classes by my professor several months ago :tongue:

    And here I am thinking I'm the only TF fan out there with a membership to Zacks.com. Saw this a couple days ago, nice to know other TF fans are on the stock watch like me.

    Hey guys, just a quick note, I used to dable in the market and did quite well. At least, with MY meager amounts (and double of nothing is still nothing).

    So I just thought I'd clear up one technical terminology misconception. "Hold" is good, in fact it's VERY good. If you think about it, it means you bought early, hang on and enjoy the ride. If you bought high and the stock is dropping, that means the analysts are predicting a comeback.

    A "buy" is usually for an undervalued stock. It's like picking the horse that went against Big Brown in Belmont. Everyone was so hyped on Big Brown to win the Triple Crown but Da' Tara actually won. Still there's a high level of RISK involved (there ALWAYS is in the market), and most traders are aware of this.

    BTW by the time you see it on CNBC, it's already to late.

    Infosaur's Rule of Trading #1: ONLY PLAY STOCKS IN AN INDUSTRY YOU UNDERSTAND!

    Then you read trade papers pertaining to your industry. Get a feel for what companies are doing well and which companies are doing poorly.

    Hope this helps:D

    Oh I work for an investment firm and know Hold is a good recommendation, but thanks for the elaboration. :)
