Default I need your advice! AAPL, CSCO or HAL?

Hi,
I am new to stocks and need your advice. I traded bkhm recently and lost some $$ and now want to get my money back. I am looking on aapl, csco and hal. Which one in your opinion would be the best choice?

Also, what do you think about RACK? Sell or hold?

Thanks a lot

what is your assessment as to why you lost on BKHM....to remedy your future selections? I ask as you say you are new. Why did you buy BKHM?

You must be looking at my portfolio. I don't own or have much to say on CSCO, but I do own the other three. And let me say I am in the house of pain on RACK. I bought in at 21 on the drop and then again at 18.80 and thought the bad new is baked in, but was smacked with reality today. I keep thinking the bottom is in, but have been wrong so far. I am looking for a rally above 17 today and will take that to get out and move on and lick my wounds. But if you are not in you could look for a bottom in the next week.

AAPL. I got out quickly after earnings, but bought it back a couple of days ago at 83.50.... looking to add more at 82. Try starting a position now and look for more opportunity soon. Quoting Adami..."look for volume over 100 million and that should be a bottom." He called the top the same way and was right.

well, I was trying to make some money(short term) on bkhm and did not sell it before the earnings. From now on I will never hold stocks like bkhm through earnings.

Buying or selling before earning report = Gambling. You never know which direction it will go. Only the big guys make decision. They can pick any excuse they want. If the company makes good profit, the big guy can say the future of the stock is "unclear" and "concern the future grow" and drive the stock price down. AAPL is a good example. If it is a solid company, don't worry about the dip, just hold longer.

Well, I think you have learnt the lesson in a hard way. So, don't make the same mistake again. Don't worry too much, as long as you are still in market, and learn from the mistake, u can make $ from the market. Invest, not gamble.

And you should adjust your idea of "earn your $ back". It will only make you take more risky decision. Like people who lost $ in casino, they bet more and more because they want to get their $ back and end up lossing all their $.

If you have enough $, break it into 2 parts. Long-term and short-term. Adjust the % depending on how aggressive you are but don't go ALL-IN! There is no sure win in stock market.
