Go capitalism @ 02:57 pm

The market went bananas on Varian Medical today.
VAR 41.02 +6.38 +18.42%
I made $5000 today for sitting on my ass. Go capitalism!

In other news, Spaceship One got the $10M X Prize for the first privately-funded spacecraft to make two launches within two weeks. Coincidentally (?) today is the anniversary of the launch of the first artificial satellite in 1957. Damn Russkies.

Wow - have you ever lost money on the stock market?

Certainly! That gain actually brings my total value back up to where it was a few months ago.
The last three stocks/mutual funds that I've invested in have all lost money since I bought them. One of them pretty catastrophically.
