    Investment sales guy

    About a week and a half ago, I got a call at work from an investment guy in New York, who evidently thinks I have a lot more money than I have. Anyway, he was a complete ********, but I listened to his line because I was curious, and he was trying to get me to buy $20,000 in this stock he said was a steal. Called me everything but sissy when I told him I wouldn't buy anything over the phone, and certainly not in that amount with consulting my wife. Anyway, so I've been tracking this stock for the last week. Check out the ten day

    Re: Investment sales guy

    LOL....

    I bet it would have been easy to sell when it got to that peak.

    I would be more interested in the next 10 days..... it looks like ppl are selling like crazy right now.

    We get fax scams at work all the time like that, and basically the scam results in a bunch of people buying it up and making the stock rise, and then it drops shortly to where it was before, if not lower. I'm sure it burns anyone who can't get right in and right out.

    Re: Investment sales guy

    your '10 day chart' is not accurate (it is tracking a full year). SPWRA (a stock I own right now for some of my clients) is up 32% over the last 10 days.

    *EDIT: Nevermind - i thought initially you were saying it has been horrible over 10 days. As an aside, solar stocks are very volatile right now - so expect a wild ride if you buy into them.
