Okay, so after our conversation here about penny stocks, I wanted to dig further because an interest was growing (again, not for serious investing, just for playing around) but I changed my mind after reading the forum. So I get to researching and read this article in Investopedia from three years ago that didn't feel right but yet, there it was. It was talking about how Warren Buffett admitted he made his wealth from risky penny stocks and day trading. *Then* I saw the April Fool's retraction. Okay now, I'm smiling knowing all you stock investors are rolling off your swivel chairs in laughter, but I'm a real estate and gold girl... and I'm sure glad I didn't rush out and buy a ton of penny stocks to hope for the same luck Buffett had. Moral of THIS story... be sure to read the small print.
