Hello Champ,

There's a difference between trading and investing for the long haul. If you want to trade, the best returns after a market whoopin' are always in the crap. In recoveries, the real junk always goes up more and faster, than the cream of the crop, or the "good stuff."

In the Fast Grower names you raised, if you can find some that have profits, even if small, but their stock is getting absolutely smashed by the market, you can make a lot of money in a hurry. As with most trades, it's all in the timing, knowing when to get in and not falling in lust with any holding.

Myself, I'm going back and forth between the SaaS ride and longer-term holdings that will let me sit and rock on the porch when I get old - even older, without getting up early to catch conference calls. I have decided that both methods are worthwhile, so I'm mixing things up. Might need 3 groups of ports now. Fast, Slow and Discover.

Sounds like TMB is even thinking of dividends! (I got some dividends once by surprise.)

They say it's a new world, but man. What will they think of next? Pretty soon we'll be DRIP investors.

Ha, I knew that was going too far.
