Actually, looking back at my transaction history I'm seeing that I've misremembered how it went down for me. Here's how my PLUG transactions actually went (and now I'm kicking myself even harder for not starting off with more...)

11/13/19 - 2 shares purchased that day. 1 @ $3.28, 1 @ $3.38....
10/16/20 - 1 share purchased @ $17.44
11/5/20 - 4.4 shares for $77.97 (reinvested from another stock I wasn't happy with) @ $17.48/share

If I'd had more ball in Nov '19.... Damn...

Can't believe no one even commented on my Ford pick. I know it's not a sexy as PLUG but it's up 45% since I bought it. Am I the only one that stuck my toe in the Lake Erie water?

Anyone here in Bitcoin? 2020 has been great to me in the BTC world.
From what i can tell, it looks like the new and improved gold, but I just don't understand it, so I'm afraid.
I'm considering starting a recurring order of like $10-20 biweekly. I feel like there's money to be made there but I don't want to just dump a bunch all at once. I know that's not the MOST rewarding way to do it but it would be the least noticeable to my monthly expenses. It's basically the same as adding a few streaming services (or bottles of beard oil for me ). What do I know though.

Well, luckily most of what I lost in PLUG and FCEL after a JP Morgan analyst said they were over and full valued I've gotten back this morning. It was about a 10% lost on Friday and this morning has been about a 10% gain. The market in general (at least all the ones I have in my watchlist) are a lot happier today than they were late last week for some reason.

This market noob is confused... Biden is in, KXL is cancelled but all of the renewable energy stocks I follow are dropping... What gives? lol. They were all going through the roof last week and now they've done a 180.

No chart is a straight line but, if I was a guessing man, I would say profit taking ahead of a potential tax increase.
