Not much. In other Tesla news 9% of the workforce is about to be let go in a round of layoffs. Citing that they have never been profitable in 15 years. I would suspect that if there is a downturn on the horizon that Tesla is going to suffer big. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla...65500873.html#

And how many dotcoms went to zero that were founded in the same era as those? Impossible to pick long term winners if it's 1998 instead of 2018. Same is true for today's hot new ideas. Some will get lucky and rich, many will lose out on busts.

Don't know how many went to zero. Its a different market now. You could make a ton back then because companies went public much smaller than today with market caps in the low hundreds of millions and lower. Yeah many of them didn't make it but even then it still wasn't picking totally blind. There were obvious fluff not worth looking at but some stood out as having potential at some point if things fell in line.
Today's techs are valued at several billion already by the time they IPO. The multiplying factor isn't there anymore if you do happen to luck out and pick a winner.

So I bought some Yahoo stock last year and Altaba acquired them making the stock worth a little more. Now Altaba sent me an e-mail saying there is a Tender Offer for my shares. Question is, not sure what a tender offer is and has anyone ever encountered a situation like this?
As for weed stocks, I bought some MEDFF and it seems to be doing ok. Also, been looking to buy some RACE stock, anyone here think it would be a go buy?

everyone's portfolio should have been performing well in 2Q18 but it was scary in 1Q. not going to get complacent ...

there's nothing wrong with having an interest in a growing industry and buying stock, just be sure you can afford to lose it. it's all about having diversification in your portfolio. i have heard 4% to be the recommended maximum % to invest in one single stock.

A tender simply means that the company that issued the shares will tender (offer) you a fixed price for your shares on a certain date. It's typically, but not always a price advantage for you. In other words, if the stock trades at 6, they might offer you 6.25. If you accept the tender, then the shares magically disappear from your account and either money or shares of another company appear ( some tenders are for share swaps).

Ha, my thoughts exactly. I bought a small position at $185.98, am up 13% so far. It was really bumpy at the start, but seems to be somewhat steady now.

Their biggest selling vehicle the F150 is made from aluminum which the US has no smelters for. Therefore has to be imported and aluminum has just been hit with a 10% import tariff.
Maybe it looks worse on the surface than it really is.

Did Alcoa shut down all their US operations? I though there were a few left.
