    What did you get during downturn?

    Picked up Raytheon, Applied Materials, Next Era and Starbucks. Had 40 percent in cash from year end selling that is getting put to use.

    Nothing..........

    I had contractors here working on the house. I was too distracted and rushed an order. I was trying to sell a put spread in AMZN for a profit, but instead ended up buying a boatload more put spreads at a terrible fill price. I was immediately looking at a big loss. It was too big a position, I couldn't afford to just sit and wait to see what the rest of day did so I took a loss on it. Of course, had I waited another hour or two I could have sold it for a big profit.......but thats what I get for rushing.....I pretty much shut down after that.........Oh well.
