As always pigs eat and hogs get slaughtered. Its all about taking profit while your up and that keeps you making money and trading. Also when you buy a stock always have your exit plan before. Institution money make stocks go up not the people on stocktwits that lie about what they are trading. Always do your own DD(due dilligence), people on SA that write their own articles becarful who knows who is paying them or what their real agenda, if you do the opposite of Cramer you will probably make more money, know what industries are in favor and trade those stocks, never buy a stock that keeps falling its hard to catch a falling knife wait till it hits support levels, you can make more money buying stocks that are up instead of thinking you can get a great deal cause stock has fell so much percent, watch unusal option activity, writing put contracts on stocks you wouldn't mind owning is an excellent way to collect a premium and not actually end up having to buy a stock but if you do you get it at a deep discount and if not you just keep the premium for selling insurance and making money is what it is about period. Warren Buffet isn't the innocent nerd he portrays. He got alot of his seed money from running pinball machine route, but these pinball machine's where pre 1947 not they kind your thinking of but gambling machines. He says he only had a dozen or so his sister says he had way more.Either way it was a cash business he got in and made some quick free tax free money I am sure that sent him on his way and he is a very smart man one of his biggest investments is in Coca-Cola the only business in the USA that can import cocaine and use some propritary part of the coco leaf in its pop and then has to sell the cocaine to a pharmicutial company.

Reading every sec filing on stocks you have interest in is important but understanding them is more important. Knowing the amount of outstantding shares , amount of shares available, and float is very important.
