Travis, you have done the impossible, you bought some Disney (DIS) on ”1/18/2019.” Please get back to me and let me know how you did that as it may open the way for me to do a little post mortem trading for the benefit of my heirs. Have fun with this, I did.

3-D printing and Graphene

That’s no misprint. If you’d been following this group, you could have netted 670 times your […]
