When my portfolio goes down it is often because of AMZN. I have a lot of AMZN long term, and then occasionally (obviously, not right now, with AMZN hitting new ATHs) I get stuck in some additional trading shares of AMZN that I have to hold until it comes back up. So, absent AMZN's tanking, I'm not too worried. Yes, I have a lot of other long term stocks but most of those are not nearly as volatile as AMZN. Even TSLA, which I also hold long term, with its ups and downs, doesn't move as violently as AMZN.

In the biomedical field I really like the science behind CRISPR. Gene editing will be the future but I don't know if CRISPR will lead the way or not. I bought some thinking that in 5 years hopefully it will double.

I have a couple of friends that are research scientists. Have been singing CRSPR praises for years. Wish I could easily trade individual stocks.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Why can't you trade individual stocks?

I can but itís a lot of red tape at work. Easier to just buy ETFs.

Bloodbath today. Pretty much ALL of my stocks are down in pre market. I havenít seen it this bad since the beginning of the pandemic induced rout. I think Iíll pass on looking until the close..

Well, it does seem that every time my account (or yours) hits a new ATH, that SOMETHING rattles the markets, no?


We're already off the lows, but general economic recovery fears are the "something" that hit the markets today.

Okay - look at that! AMZN went from minus something like -75 to +37. That's what I'm talking 'bout!

TSLA just turned green too!

Anybody notice their local bank branches are going out of business? That coin shortage must be making them irrelevant.

Well, you could answer DRich's question because you have analyzed the stock more than I have.

I do know that the last time it dropped below 2 or almost to 2 it rocketed back up, but this is like an almost triple bottom this year for the stock...no? I mean AMZN hit the 3100s two or three times this year and look at where it is now (around 3700), but then again, that's AMZN, which seems to just go up over time no matter what.
