Hey congrads bro on your investment! I too have had similar success with my "Vegas" account. I usually scope out Big Pharma penny stocks and buy ones that have promise. Example in early 90's bought 1000 shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals @$6.78 a share. In 3 years stock had shot up to $149.00 a
share, bailed and re-invested in Imunex that eventually went up to $254.00 a share in one year and then split 3 to 1. Then I bailed and had enough to pay for daughter's education and an apartment in LA for 4 years. Most excellent bro.
Invest only in stock you know something about. Buy penny stock
investing no more than several thousand initially, and then presto!!!
Lift, fuck, make money
I did the same with vanda years ago and use to buy alot of pharma penny stocks and make good money. I gave myself a cap of 1k per penny stock and made good $ but vanda was my big payoff of 8k but I sold too early and should've made 22k+.
It's not as impressive to hear it was employee-owned company stock with the OP. My boss was a multi-millionaire after our merger. I know several P&G employees who also retired as multi-millionaires while working blue collar jobs and hoarding company stock. I also know a guy who was devestated from owning large amounts of Enron (through a Enron-owned company) in his 401k so it's very risky to hold alot of it, no matter what company.
