    Oh I know. I figured I'd take a gamble on KEK and I was ok losing 30% on like $400-500 though didn't want to lose anymore. Good thing I did since it's been dropping even lower. When I invest thousands in a blue chip like DIS or KO, I'm in it for the long term so even if goes down 2-3% from what I bought my shares at, I'll buy more shares to lower the average cost. If KO drops below $40 or DIS drops below $100 again, I'll swoop up another 50 shares or so.

    Thoughts on Under Armour? It closed at $25.80 today. 52 week high was $46 and low was $23. It IPO-D in April of this year from the looks of it. Nike historically has always sat around $50-60. Does Under Armour have the same potential? Plus the new MLB deal they signed which goes into effect in 2020, and all the star athletes that are associated with them (Steph Curry, Bryce Harper etc.), the company has huge potential.

    DIS up 4.5% today thus far, now at $106.20 per share. Probably the bump this morning can be attributed to the solid weekend of Rogue One. I'm telling you this will be $120 stock again in no time and has greater potential. Wish I bought in at $92 back before the election ugh.

    My cousin said that it will most definitely have a positive effect. This current CEO is pretty reluctant to change and is more happy with the status quo. The new CEO hopefully is more innovative and is willing to expand the company.

    My Christmas penny stock picks. Encanto Potash (EPO). Acerus Pharmaceuticals (ASP) and Westernzagros (WZN).

    I own all of these stock's and paid a considerable more for them, then where they sit. I am also buying them again at their current price. All high risk, decent reward potential.

    Encanto is a junior potash company in Saskatchewan. Westernzagros is an oil company currently in a war zone. (Kurdistan). Those two are very high risk.

    Acerus is Eugene Melnyk's pet project and has developed nasal spray testosterone for both men and women. For men to make your mid life crisis suck a little less. For women, to make them orgasm again.

    Mr Melnyk got in a considerable amount of trouble for funneling a whole bunch of his own personal equity into stock over the last couple years.

    One other that I have bought and owned a whole lot of at all different prices is Ecobalt Solutions (formerly Formation Metals). They have rights to the largest and would be only North American producing reserve of Cobalt. (Idaho Cobalt Project). High grade cobalt is going to increase in demand as we move more to electric/battery power.

    Please do your own research before buying. I sell house's not securities!

    Interview with FGD's CEO:

    http://www.financialpost.com/m/wp/mi...intech-company

    He is talking big numbers here, big numbers I believe he can make good on. Reading the transcript you'll get a good idea of what this company is doing within the mobile payments world. There's a million different companies out there, so you have to carve your own niche.

    Might as well post this as well:

    http://web.tmxmoney.com/article.php?...&qm_symbol=FGD

    Since the beginning of the third quarter 2016, the Company has experienced an average of 18% growth week-over-week in its international payments business, representing an overall growth in transaction volumes of 2,869%

    Since the September 20, 2016 launch of its mobile payment service in India, the Company has experienced an average of 22% week-over-week growth in number of new customers and an average of 20% week-over-week growth in transaction volumes, with customers performing an average of 3 transactions each.

    "These are extremely promising statistics especially when you consider the Indian toll stations accepting VPayQwik™ and the Hidase Telecom initiative in Ethiopia are not yet contributing factors. FINTECH is the future and our mandate is future forward. The focus for 2017 is to continue deploying on numerous geographic segments with large enterprise partners, penetrating their respective embedded customer bases and monetizing these clients. We look forward to an exponential year of growth in 2017.", said Andre Itwaru, the Company's Chairman and CEO.

    Have 1500 shares in FGD. If it dips again below 0.25 might buy another 1000 or so shares.

    PKK at 0.06 now. Hopefully it continues to go up instead of keeping the status quo which it has done haha.

    DIS at $107 now :P I want to buy more shares before it gets way too expensive.

    That reminds me, I think I saw for people trading with CIBC that they have an active tier that reduces the commission to $5 if you make more than a certain number of trades a quarter.

    I don't day trade this thing. Imagine how I feel. I think people would shit bricks if they saw the day-to-day changes in my portfolio this week. 5 to 6 digit figure changes lol. Penny stock investing is not for those who have weak hearts.

    If you buy when shares are around $1.20, it's worth taking a small risk in hoping it has a day where it jumps 20%. It's a risky stock though. Either goes up 15-20% or drops 15-20% on any given day. If you invest thousands into it, you could easily lose a big chunk of money in just one day. Wouldn't touch KEK right now since I assume in the next day or two it probably drops back down somewhere between $1.20-$1.40.

    If there is news on their new platform UI it's going to skyrocket. If there is no news for another few days then you're right it might retreat back to that level.


    www.peeks.com or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keek

    Really cool concept that people can get paid for livestreaming (kinda like YouNow with the tip jar)...but the app is really, really fucking porny right now. The webcam girls are getting several dozen viewers though and even the guys wanking it are getting a few viewers lol. These people are obviously making good money which means the company is making good money with a 30-50% cut otherwise why would these people be broadcasting day after day when there are a million other sites to show web cam girl stuff and get paid they could be using instead.

    The new UI is badly needed so the porn is segregated and not too blatant so they can actually start promoting the app to the mainstream.

    More news out on FGD today. Coming along a little slower than I expected this month, but still coming along. It's 29 cents now.

    First Global Adds Movie Cinemas and Food Courts to Mobile Wallet
    Canada NewsWire

    TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2017

    TSX Venture Exchange: FGD
    Frankfurt Stock Exchange: 1G5

    TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2017 /CNW/ - First Global Data Limited ("First Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that more than 400 movie cinemas and food courts across India will be accepting the VPayQwik™ mobile app as a payment method.

    First Global Data Limited (CNW Group/First Global Data Limited)

    The many millions of customers who frequent these movie cinemas and food courts on a regular basis will be able to scan a QR code to make payment for movie tickets and food. The service has already been successfully rolled out in select cinemas and the Company is working to complete its full roll out.

    Mr. Pankaj Kumar, CEO of the Company's India subsidiary, MSEWA Software Solution Private Limited ("MSEWA") said, "according to Wikipedia, Indian cinemas produced 1,969 feature films in 2014. The number of admissions in 2013 was 1,978,000,000 and gross box office receipts in 2015 was $1.6 billion. This is an unparalleled opportunity to mobilize payments in the Indian cinema entertainment value chain."

    "We are very excited about this cinema roll-out as it provides us with a monstrous Indian footprint and is an enabler for massive user outreach in the tens of millions to drive revenues while providing customers with more options to use VPayQwik™" said Andre Itwaru, Chairman and CEO of First Global.

    About First Global:

    First Global is an international financial services technology (FINTECH) company. The Company's two main lines of business are mobile payments and cross border payments.
