couple of cancer pharma stocks that have real promising drugs that are past phase 2 trials: Onocolytics ONCY and pharmacyclics PCYC. PCYC has done really well for me wish i had put more in up front. might be worth a google.

Let’s just say we can expect to see some big real estate deals to go down in California in the next few months–and some expensive toys parked in driveways soon thereafter. But if you want to be cool in California, not just any car will do–you’ve got to prove you’re as discerning as you are rich.

Here are nine cars Facebook’s newly flush should consider:

can i give you some advice? don't throw money at ideas just because you have a hunch.

we are approaching a short term top with all of this bullishness...whenever everyone goes gaga for stocks and ideas...its usually time to sell.

You taking some profits after this NFP pop gents/ecto? Seems like a good time to dump manufacturing/materials positions.

i dont have any materials positions because the charts are all nasty and below their 200 day averages. i sold mostly everything earlier this week and now have two tech positions waiting for earnings.

i think we head higher but this extreme bullishness is not for me. there's plenty of lower risk opportunities available in the future.

I use Investopedia for their tutorials
http://www.investopedia.com/#axzz1lYDxa5HP
Khan Academy finance and valuation & investing sections are helpful for understanding broad concepts
http://www.khanacademy.org/
I end up on Seeking Alpha a lot too (along with the other major news sites: bloomberg, wsj, etc.)

Books: The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, Saving for Retirement by Gail MarksJarvis (this can be substituted with many conservative, index-based retirement strategy books.)
