Yeah, it's probably a good time to invest but the stock I own is killing me right now.

SUN (SUNW) is one I also have my eye on they are staying around $4.00 right now. I'm not sure what I want to do... but you don't lose until you sell so I think I might be putting in a buy order for $3.75

I invested in 3dfx a long time ago and tripled my money :) I wish I invested in nVidia back then, too!

Remember how Qualcomm jumped up a huge amount towards December 1999? Well we bought some at $181 per share then. It stands at $27.77 per share right now.

I guess we really haven't lost though - we haven't sold it yet. ;)

my sister and I have a little money in some mutual funds and those things have performed horribly, much like the market has...so I'm really thinking about selling them and putting the money into stocks...but then, I know the market will go up again at some point, and the mutual funds will make up what they've lost so far too...

Oh, decisions. I only have like ~$600 in them now, my sister originally had like $1500 (she's 16), and now it's probably well below 1000. ouch.

I read somewhere in an investing magazine that Nvida could be the next Intel.

They're business strategy is sound, new products every 9 months. They have a good stronghold on the market, they've branded very well. The GeForce name is synonymous with good performance, I think the whole ATI and Nvidia gap that has been apparent until ATI's 9700 has really hurt ATI in terms of sales and marketing.

Whats a good way to buy stocks when you don't have an account open with anybody and are only looking to buy like say 20 some shares of a ten dollar stock? Or is that too trivial of an amount to even mess around with?

I think a whole lot more people know what Pentium is than what a GeForce is.

True, but it's almost becoming a standard with ATI

Yeah, I have a little extra money that I would like to invest, but I have no idea how.

Datek is good for beginners with not too much money...so is etrade. Both of their transactions fees are relatively low.

Id personally like to see a headline like....."Microsoft to use AMD's new Opteron processor in the XBOX2!!"
Stock would shoot up quite a bit for them.
