$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ( -$2,371.47 ) Week - 12 The Quarter Pole! Well this isn’t anything like they promised in the brochure… For the first time since starting this game, all twenty positions are in the negative! A hefty loss on the week overall as well. There was devastation, destruction, discontent, discord, disappointment, and woe! Oh the woe. Wow! The week wavered by almost $324. I’d have to check but...

$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ( -$2,047.60 ) Week - 11 Fire! Our Window to the Past! I sat in the backyard with a beverage this past week. The wife and I are renovating a bedroom in our home. Took down a half ton of plaster from the walls, then began the process of removing the exposed wooden lath. Most of which will go out with the other trash later in the week. Some scraps however made for a cheery blaze and...

An actual gain this week, not much but welcome. Driven mostly by nice gains in a couple of tickers I had as favorites to do well at the start. OZSC & MMEDF are both positions I hold IRL (in real life). I’m happy to hear that MIND MEDICINE is uplisting from the OTC market to the far more...

$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ( -$2,187.88 ) Week - 9 One is the Loneliest Number! Only one lonely positive symbol left… The only one to show a gain from last week too! 9 weeks into the game and rapidly approaching the half value loss mark. What’s going on? I should be picking out Italian marble for my villa in France by now. I tell you, this patience thing may turn out to be wildly overrated! Let’s just leave this...

F lying in a big airliner Chickens flyin' everywhere around the plane Could we ever feel much finer? Well represented and diverse in form, dripping with potential is the pot stock sector. You know for a plant that is still illegal, there sure is a bunch of above board economic activity going on. Probably be more if the...

$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ( -$1,416.26 ) Week - 7 Short Week - Short Post! Overall drop again this week but slight. The market in general was substantially calmer and made a noticeable upturn from the carnage of the past month. With the US markets being closed to observe the religious holiday, all the major action was on Thursday. CYIOS Corp. (CYIO) took an 8 position tumble and gave back a little over $54 on...

$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ( -$1,385.02 ) Week - 6 I’m an Eagles Fan! If you know what that means, no explanation is needed. If you don’t, none may suffice to adequately explain. I watched the only Superbowl win for “My” team, went to the parade in the city afterwards, got literally crushed by the co-attending throngs and enjoyed the experience for what it was or may be. If this is to be the only Superbowl...

It’s a good read! I tried to post a link to the song in a FB group I joined. The group pertains...

$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ( -$834.21 ) Week - 4 Witchcraft & Wizards Belief systems and the market and life in general. I think, I want v. I feel, I need. The paradox of mathematical perfection against the chaos of belief and feeling. I was raised Roman Catholic and so had an early and somewhat rigid version of beliefs gotten at second hand. I never really took to it myself and if pressed on the issue today...

$5K - 52 Weeks - 20 Penny Stocks One Winner!! Current Status ($934.91) Week - 3 Dungeons & Dragons Sometimes displayed as D&D should not be confused with DD. Normally we refer to “Due Diligence” as a process of vetting a potential investment. Is it a stable company with a reliable customer base, adequate financing and a strong track record of profits? I personally recommend Caterpillar (CAT). Just the highlights here: A $200 share price...
