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.

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.

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.)
