  • I have a few stocks in my portfolio and most of them -- except for Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) -- are going down. Here's the rest of my portfolio: Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Level 3 (LVLT), Goldman Sachs (GS), Trinity Industries (TRN), Rite Aid (RAD), Celgene (CELG) and ConocoPhillips (COP). I actually am looking for a stock for a quick trade. Any plays?

  • I recently received an email recommending a 65-cent stock. I have no idea how they got my email address, but I looked into the stock, Legacy Mining (LEYM.OB). The company has no key statistics only news that it's acquiring a mine in China. Would it be a good idea to invest just $100 in this company?
