I bought Berkshire at $2010 and sold at $8768 and thought I was a genius until I watched it go to 9800+

Another nomination: I knew an Australian billionaire visited Bunker Hunt and took a ton of cash to buy 4.9% of Triton nergy. I bought $450,000 personally and $380,000 from my small company (30% of my net worth) on an alleged South Amaerican strike. Bought at 19. No news for 3 weks so I sold at a loss . .4.5. On Thursday of that week, this smal energy company announded the third largest hit in history and went straight to 64 . . .1600 % in a week. Would have become a multimillionaire in 3 more days.
