Never thought SHOP (Shopify) would be my best stock ever
Bought $29 USD on a whim, and today, bam, $39 with blowout ER (+10~15%)

I can only say - I bought too little :P

My limit order for Avigilon at $16 went through. Easy trade income to sell at $17 or $18 I think, if not long term hold.

EA would be a good buy today before ER
Not sure why EA price dropped in after hours. They beat both top and bottom line as far as I know. Manipulation from the street? This stock should worth at least $80

okay the stocks that I bought last minute to take advantageER results (AAPL, EA, FB, CI) all beat estimate but somehow they turned out to be a flop afterwards. Isn't that bad luck?

I wish I could swap those for GOOL, and AMAZON

Seriously, are you [veryhumble]?

Hindsight is 20-20. I wish I could've bought VRX, which smashes everything else, including AAPL

LKND is -6% after hours now, are you sure you are looking correctly?

Who's that? I wish I could have bought VRX or NFLX last year too lol

Good call. LKND had a spike right out of the after hours gate. I haven't checked since then

I don't exactly remember Q1 ER season as I wasn't that invested 3 months ago (end of April)
Was it this crazy? like ER can beat expectations and stocks still move irrationally....
I know TWTR certainly had its problem with the leak and etc...

I know oil was $60 back then so all was good and people may have been in better mood
but if every ER is like this, I need a bigger heart :) (I don't trade, but looking at ER after-hours is crazy enough)
or every stock I own should be stock I want for next 10 years
