    Not the best time to invest for most stocks......been pulling a lot of $$$ out. Been adding a bit on the long term for oil and gas stock since they are low and will rebound at some point.

    Put a few more dollars in PTR, OXY and XOM in the past month.

    First and foremost never invest or try to invest into something you don't know or don't understand. So stay away from options.

    In the past and you can look up the posts, I have posted stocks to buy and if I went back and did a thread update, I would venture 90% + of what I suggested made people a lot of money.

    Without knowing what your actual portfolio is invested in and the value of it, it's pretty hard to say hey here's a stock, dive in.

    A portfolio needs to be diversified and not tied into one particular sector. While people will sit here and predict the market is going to go down and what not, the market and investing is a long term venture. The market will have turbulence and it has in the past and historically has roared back time and time again.

    I am going to list two stocks, both pay a dividend albeit nothing to write home about, but you simply have your dividends reinvested and forget about it.

    WFM - Whole Foods near $54
    SONC - Sonic Restaurants near $34.20

    Both are well positioned and have room to run. Both are a tad off their 52 week high and that's what you're looking for.

    If you're looking for a spec play - I would look at CAK. Around .40 cents or so.

    At the end of the day, it's your $, it's your call.

    Good luck with whatever you choose to invest in.

    Whole Foods and Sonic and about the worst picks you could make. Both losing market share per an on store basis. Sonic discounting and building too many stores....WHole Foods getting beat out by regional and local chains getting into the "organic" game, but that's a whole 'nother story

    WFM Debt to Equity ratio 0.02 the industry average is a staggering 17.79

    Last 5 years EPS 22.3% compared to industry average of 1.7%

    You may not like WFM but it is going higher.

    As for SONC they are heading into the time of year where 70% of their sales come from. Their last quarter showed double digit same store growth and considering the weather issues they faced in several of their key markets this was strong growth.

    You can have your opinion, I have history of successful posts on stock suggestions. Feel free to short them, it's your money, it's your opinion. Good luck.

    I am done educating.

    I have great success...

    I wouldn't short either but both are losing market share and wouldn't jump in now...much better out there.... Whole Foods is getting KILLED in the midwest by local and regional chains...not sure about other parts of the country.

    Whole Foods quarterly report from just 5 weeks ago.

    Both of those stocks would have been Great to have 6 months ago. Not saying they are not good now.
    Agree kind of what Loomis was saying with Whole Foods, would figure they would be hurting.... BUT they are still making money, which says... they know what they are doing, and doing it good.
    I actually have a back round in this sector, and made All of my Legit money from it.

    Sonc, who hit their 52 week High on Friday, is a little less attractive to me ( I'm no expert )
    I've seen them grow over the past year or so... turn around and you will see their TV ads. But upon small research I see a lot of Form 4's, but Don't blame them cashing in.

    For years I have owned stocks but always used a Broker. Now I opened a Schwab account to play around with. Still buying Long Term, just doing it myself now.
    Still have the Brokerage account. But I wanted something, so I would learn more about it.

    There are NO Guarantees in Life, and that Includes the Stock market.

    I've had plenty of Up and downs, but overall in the past 15 years I am up... because of two main Stocks.

    I've had FGP for years

    And if you are calling a broker to make a trade.....you are the only one left in the world that trades stocks over the phone.

    I bought FORD a couple of years back at a nice price.

    I have 1000 shares that I now buy and sell often, picking up $250 to $600 a trade.

    Goes down I buy...goes up I sell. Little at a time adds up after a while.

    I had Reynolds tobacco which I sold last year, should have kept it, reached a high of $76 several weeks ago.......my mom has quite a few shares & I told her to sell when it cane back down to $73, it'd now $69.90 or something like that.

    She won't sell, she says it will go back up......I hope it does for her sake.

    She bought in at a very good price. I just think the market will level off, it can't keep sustaining this upward climb.
