Since I'd like to talk about stocks and why exactly they are where they are, I think this would be a good place to put this topic.

My Apple is all the way up to 275 from 265 a week ago, meaning I'm $1000 richer. However, I'm probably going to lose it back soon.

TAKE DA MONIES! TAKE DA MONIES! :D But, seriously, you could do a lot with $1000, so, yes, take the cash.

Unfortunately, the long term capital gains tax is such that if I were to sell, I'd lose half the value of my stocks. Short term is worse, but fortunately, I've held the stock for more than 2 years now.

I can't figure why Apple is going up like this, though.

They are!!??

But seriously, I was looking, and Microsoft has a LOWER enterprise value and market cap than Apple. Tesla Motors is all the way up to 21.5 or so, even though they have yet to make a profit. Exxon mobil is worth $60.78 a share, and Shell is at $56 a share. This is just wierd.

Spongebob Squarepants, Spongebob Squarepants, ohh Spongebob... Squarepants!!! [/spoiler] [/spoiler]

I could not stop laughing long enough to sing it to myself, and I pride myself on singing, despite a lack of voice lessons.

Go to YouTube and search BP spills coffee.

I guess that would explain why Shell and Exxon are up.

That was my point, nobody is buying from BP but they still need gas.

But still, the Tesla Motors thing: what have they done recently?

Note he said "up" to. Not down to. It must be a good thing.
