You may have noticed I added a new AIM Soiree link – I see Philip O’Sullivan fell for this site also! I found it last year, and (a bit of a surprise to me) have enjoyed visiting it regularly since. Take a look, I recommend it – the design has a ’50/60s cartoon vibe (unusual for a finance website!), and it (rather smartly) ranks the Top 10 (& 100) AIM Stock Discussions from across the web.
Why the interest? Well, I’m fascinated at what pops up! Yeah, you guessed, it’s stuffed to the gills with natural resource penny dreadfuls! Oh Lord, fuck a duck… Not too much of a stretch to assume the most discussed stocks are also the most popular stocks to invest in (occasionally to short, but for the overwhelming majority it’s to go long)? And trawling through a few boards, it seems like there are plenty of people out there who believe they’ve got a well-diversified portfolio simply because they own 5 different resource stocks (not all oil stocks, you know ;-))!?! This idea’s even more insane than the stocks themselves. Got any friends like this? Can you help ’em out, buddy, please?!
