Held onto palantir and feel like dancing a jig this morning, also bought more rkt on this mornings dip.

On the flipside I'm punching air for not buying fcel.
Can't gamble feeding baby on that dope money, might not always be sufficient.

FCEL's jump in stock price has been pretty fun to watch, but I'm thinking these gains might be temporary.

Investors often spend a lot of time researching when to buy a stock but little time into when to sell. I'm pretty much a buy and hold investor but when I have a big run up I usually try to lock in some profit and run with the rest. When an investment heads south it's tricky. It's human nature to not want to admit a mistake and sell. You keep hoping for a rebound. But being able to cut your losses is important.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

I’m trying to get stock for my 4 year old but i am literally lost in this world. I have no idea how risky to go or what to choose.

I would study ETFs that reinvest dividends. That way it is growing in multiple ways plus you are diversifying your risk in a sense that your ETF will be made up of 10-20 companies.

For instance, I moved some money into XAR which is a space/defense ETF. So it lets me have a piece of Boeing, Lockheed etc at a cheaper cost (then buying into the stocks directly) plus I enjoy reading on advanced military weapons and planes.

So maybe find an industry or area of interest for you and your kid and research there to start. Otherwise there are more general ETFs that are long term plays that are bigger and follow the general economy.

Good luck
