purchasing a two year subscription to "million dollar portfolio" on aug. 25th 2008 for $899.00. my results so far: (all stocks i bought were/are "buy first" stocks.)

500 shares aib 08/25 $23.90 @ = - $5510 = - 46.11% now $12.88
500 shares unh 09/16 $26.50 @ = -$3610 = - 27.55% now $19.20
500 shares cx 09/12 $18.97 @ = -$4425 = - 46.65% now $10.12

thank goodness i stopped there.

so far: -$ 5510 - $ 3610 - $4425 - $899 = - $14,444

and now emails to subscribe to "motley fool pro" using options, etf's, and other hedge strategies--someone must really consider me a "fool" thanks, but no thanks.

p.s. nice portfolio--1 year performance is stellar.


p.p.s if only i would've "shorted first"
