Not true. Good investor diversify their investment. I work at a bank and an investor told me what works best actually is 70% safe, 30% risky

Safe you can get 1 to 3%
Risky you can get 5 to ??

With this you can get easy 5% per year. That's when you don't have a huge capital to invest. Around 10-20k approx. When you have more you can diversify more thus increasing the % of risky investment.

Those who are buying low are usually newbies thinking it will go up easily since it is low but the risk is also higher to lose more. The above post from jagged is also true reversed.

Let's use a $5,000 investment as an example.

Investor X buys 1,000 shares of company A for $5 per share. Total investment = $5,000.

Investor Y buys 250 shares of company B for $20 per share. Total investment = $5,000.

Shares of company A drop $5.

Shares of company B drop $10 !!! This is TWICE the drop value per share compared to the investment that fool X invested in company A!!! I lost $10 per share while he only lost $5 Nuuuu!

Now let's do the math:

$5 rise x 1,000 shares of company A = $5,000. Lost for investor X = 100%.

$10 rise x 250 shares of company B = $2,500. Lost for investor Y = 50%

Thanks for the investment advice E.F. Hutton . rolleyes.gif

The point is that companies who trade under ten dollars are usually in trouble. (Like AMD).

If you go into investing assuming that a company's share price is going to rise just for the sake of assumption you are a fool. A good investment for a small time investor is putting money into a stock like Mcdonalds on a down quarter and letting it grow for several years not trying to quickly double your money on a down stock.

You are obviously new to this.

Not true! You can make good investment but the risk are higher as stated.
The advantage is that you can get a lot of share so the gains are huge when there is. I don't think AMD is in deep trouble. They are doing well in mobile and graphic lately.

You are obviously new to this.

Think about the context of where the company is in the industry though. Knowing that monopolies are not allowed, and that there really are only two major CPU manufacturers for consumers, do you think AMD is going anywhere but up if their stock is in the range of $2-10? Of course not. Sure, they'll have their daily or quarterly fluctuations, but understanding what the company is doing and their direction can make it just as good of a buy as mindlessly investing in a company that has historic stability. For the time-being, AMD is on an upward-swing, probably won't be a short-term thing either. Their APU production and adoption is mostly un-rivaled in terms of cost to produce and performance delivered to the customers. They practically couldn't make enough to satisfy demand (hopefully partnering with IBM will help with that). Coupling that with a demonstrated showing of strength in areas like APU production and adoption only reinforces their position. If someone doesn't have a ton of money to invest, there's nothing wrong with buying a sub-$10 company if you understand the situation. What's McD's short-term plan?

And here I was looking at their stock during Bulldozer release almost biting the bullet while it was sitting at around $4.52 and didn't because of the news, mad.gif

Let's not act like AMD is honest and doesn't do shady deals. How many times have they been caught price fixing to try and shut out Intel now? Neither of them are completely "honest".

You guys can say all you want. Buying a stock trading under 10 dollars is almost universally a bad decisions. Obviously people have done it and made money but any good investor is going to tell you the exact same thing. It's just a good rule of thumb to go by especially if your new.

That doesn't mean AMD can't lift themselves back up as has already been said. There are good risks and bad risks this is a bad risk end of story. No matter how much you like their products personally you need to be careful with your own money. If you let your feelings for the companies products get in the way you will lose money.

So the fact that a stock price is sub-$10 negates any information and understanding you have about the company's objectives, project plans, and demonstrated improvement of strength?

There's a lot of Apple and AMD hate on this site, for sure. I'm going Intel on my next build, for the first time, ever. And yet I don't feel the need to harp on AMD. After all, I DO love their GPUs. Jagged is a little right though, there are several mods that have their own agenda and will give infractions to good users for no reason. Like a little sewing club of gossiping old ladies.

What's with the black licorice hate?
