I wanted to start a poll, but I don't see any mods on so I'll just post a regular thread and they can change it if needed.
Instead of blowing my tax return money on high-tech krap, drugz, women, vacations, and other meaningless things, I dedicided to do something different this year.
I read an article on yahoo similar to this one, and decided to invest in Google at a time when their stock is at what seems like a low point. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The total cost was about $900.
So, my question is, is that overly impulsive? or something normal, that you all would do?
yes, it's impulsive, i wouldn't do it
no, it's not, i would do it too
edit: i paid $441.77 per share for google when i bought it. i only had $1,000 to work with total so i bought 2 shares. After the $12.99 they charge to do the trade, that left a little more than $100 leftover to invest elsewhere.
