Hohumm77, no actually sold it a while back (for a profit of about 25% if I remember correctly).This is as good an example as any of how this group can help male money. I was reading the "coloring book" (USA Today) while away at a hotel one morning about a year ago and read two disconnected articles: The first said that the US had cut the tariff on Brazilian ethanol and thee other was about increasing the authorization of spiking out gasoline with ethanol (both arguably macro factoids). I posted a question on METAR, explaining why I was interested and asking for stock of Brazilian companies which exported ethanol. Hohum77 stepped up to the plate and suggested CZZ (Cosan). While I only had to trust the judgment of one other person (after a bit of DD, of course), I guess others would have to trust two people (myself for the idea and Hohumm for the suggested solution), but all the information was available here.Similar discussions have taken place over the years (Wendy TIP's, my Australian currency thing, the late Sonny Page on Silver Weaton, the various gold bugs, Frank Martin's call of a market bottom and, yes, even Androcles's Apple whining) and provided ample opportunity for those who listen (and believe) to make money.If everyone agreed on every idea, this group wouldn't provide the stimulus to thinking that healthy difference of opinion does. Andy's observation that everyone here is somehow negative in their opinions and somehow not able to make money in the stock market is not only wrong, but shows that he simply hasn't been paying attention :-)Jeff
