So why dont you buy some stocks that are at all time lows right now? Theres plenty of them even though the market is up. If the market crashes again after happening not too long ago who knows how long it will take to recover.

Because they're probably bad investments.

The stocks that are at all time lows while the markets are at all time highs aren't good long term investments.

Yeah pretty much. Damn near every stock gained. Most doubled, tripled, or more.

I started trading in mid-late '09. Wish I had gotten in a year earlier.. I would have made a k!lling.

not true at all there are other factors that could be effecting the stock price and earning per share.

like what? bad earnings?

no matter what the reason is, there's a divergence for a reason, and it's a bad reason. meaning it's a weak company/stock.

I entertained the idea for a while and it slipped my mind and forgot about it. Then the stock rose to $62 in 2009. We're talking about a $290,000 profit off of a $2000 investment.....

Damn. If you take a risk you can see good gains off companies now if you expect a higher demand in the future. Sometimes you have to get in on the ground

Did they get delisted from the exchange for a period or something? I looked up the chart and I'm not seeing where it went to 0.45? searching symbol AIG.

No, in 2009 the stock did a 1:20 reverse stock split, meaning if you had 4700 shares before the split, you would have had 235 shares after the split valued at $20 x .42 or 8.40 per share so theres no real change in the value of your shares because the amount of shares has decreased and the price per share increased. If you held those shares until today, you would've seen a nice profit but not 290k!!

What happen to that thread about turning 10,000 to 100,000...

I posted about neom because I was talking with somebody about it before. Think it was around .008 I liked but can't remember (might have been lower or around .01) anyway was just checking and yesterday hit .058 I believe...

If it was .008 would be +700%
