How can I tell if a stock is going to continue to do well or if I'm too late?

Love threads like these... essentially asking "How can I determine that I'll make money with zero risk?!"

Look at Bghallgers and CoachPotato's posts. If they are talking about, you're WAY too late!
LOL.. AIG is out of their leauge. It's only trading in the $45.00 range. These guys are only interested in the triple digit securities like, TESLA, NFLX and GLD. :D

I wonder if coachpotato knows about BRK.A and that it's worth $173,800 per share....

I just auto report couchpotatoqb's posts to the mod team, his posts are all troll / joke posts that quick derail the thread. At least bgallagher's posts are genuinely uninformed / express a desire to learn.

OP - if you look at a stock's performance from a min/max perspective (i.e. from its lowest point to its highest point) you will always feel like you're underperforming... but in reality no-one is going to time the market perfectly to capture the full gains. If you look at it from a more realistic point of view and aim for 60-70% of the movement then your actual performance might be more satisfying (i.e. if something has a range of $10-$20 over the past 3 months and you got in at $13.50 and out at $18.00 for $4.50/share its still quite good even though true min/maxing would have yielded a $10/share gain).

I don't own/never have owned TSLA nor NFLX nor GLD. You guys got me confused with someone else (rfdr.. maybe).

Haha...pretty interesting fellow indeed...but it was this persistence/stubbornness of his that got him the positive result in the end.

... Although, I'm a little surprised you went against what everyone advised ,op. You've got balls and absolutely crazy at the same time to do this.
