TIRED OF GETTING NO WHERE…CAN WE DO SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT..AND MIX THINGS UP!! TRAVIS INSTEAD OF DEBUNKING THESE TEASERS WHICH I NEVER WIND UP BUYING HENCE NOT MAKING ANY MONEY, WHY DONT MEMBERS SEND IN ACTUAL STOCK PICKS THEY HAVE IN THEIR PORTFOLIO OR WATCHLIST THAT THEY REALLY LIKE..SHORT TERM OR LONG TERM AND THEN YOU CAN GIVE YOUR TAKE ON EACH OF THOSE. FOR INSTANCE IF I SAID I REALLY LIKE SPRINT AT THESE PRICES…IF THEY BUY T-MOB THE STOCK WILL MORE THEN DOUBLE WITHN 6-12 MONTHS. THEN YOU GIVE EVERYONE YOUR TAKE ON SPRINT. MAYBE WE CAN DO ONE OF THOSE ON MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY? WE CAN CALL IT LOVE IT, LIKE IT OR HATE IT!!

Interesting idea, Paul, thanks! By the way, convention dictates that ALL CAPS when you’re writing online is the equivalent of yelling — I know some folks prefer to write in caps for physical reasons, but some will take offense if you “yell” all the time.

I’ll have to think about what we might do — maybe we can have a weekly feature with a submitted idea from a reader or a few such ideas and get up/down/sideways votes from readers on it along with some thoughtful comments. If so, I’d like to see us start with thoughtful questions — not, “What about XYZ ticker” but a paragraph or two explaining why it’s of interest and worth considering that we can react to.

There is no such thing as one right opinion on a stock, of course, but there can be a lot of value in hearing different opinions and reactions from different investors who look at it from different angles (and with different time frames, portfolio concentration, or world views).

If other folks have ideas for interesting ways to consider and “vet” some stocks and spur discussion on ideas that aren’t currently being “teased” or pushed by newsletters or pundits, feel free to let us know. I’m open to participating.

What or whom is this ‘we’ you speak of referring to. I joined the ‘irregulars’ because I enjoy the information presented. It has been fruitful to me in my investing. There is quuite a lot of other ideas presented in the comments that follow most articles. IMHO change would not be welcome. Keep up the good works Travis, thanks.

I would love this! This is what I was expecting from signing up as an irregular. The rest has not helped me in my investing other than what to stay away from. Please do this!

I think there are enough postings here that having three more a week that are slightly different won’t harm the site. We are already getting a touch of this from Travis sharing his own portfolio with us.

This sounds like a good idea to me,,,,May I suggest that everyone should bookmark the site so it doesn’t get lost among all the other postings.

I would like to subscribe to a site that would lead me to picks before they go up. I’m new to this all and I get emails for suggestions , I go and buy them then they drop. Any ideas ? Thanks
