Re: Sea Ltd (SE) Great performance, high risk

For these games, Sea wouldn't have to worry about using resources to build these games, which possibly means higher gross margin,

Re: Sea Ltd (SE) Great performance, high risk

Re: Entire Workplace on Robinhood

I do find RHood's marketing of options to suckers...I mean retail to be morally repugnant.

You have better odds of long-term success with scratch-offs.

Re: The Best Investment Books of All Time

If you're looking for a true investment classic, I'd recommend 'Quality of Earnings' by Thornton O'Glove. 1987 published so a bit more recent than the 1920s-1950s tomes.

People are saying this is like the tech stocks of 1999. They say this because they are worried. Everyone remembers that drop. I think they are right but they have the year wrong. This is the start of the tech run. Think of Microsoft in 1986 when [more]
