    Does anyone here own stocks?

    Why not just put the money on sports, it's gotta be better odds than buyin stock right now, the whole market is in the red, either take a short position or don't invest, buying stocks right now has gotta rank up there with online casino

    There are many more ways to make money in the market than being long or short on stocks.

    I trade stocks daily.

    I don't own anything long term and haven't all year.

    This will be pass eventually and there will be great buying opportunities. I don't expect this to happen anytime soon though.


    And yes, depending on the size of your investment, sports betting can offer much greater returns -- but you better know what you are doing.

    I bought FNM at .82. Doubled and then dropped back down. Either way I'll hold it till this all turns around in a couple years. I'd expect it to go back to 10 at least.

    Otherwise I'll probably be buying in soon. Looking like the time to jump back on when it's all low.

    Sports betting will definitely have higher returns on bankrolls up to a certain size but it definitely isn't perfectly scalable and as Durito says you better know what you are doing. As for you, you're better off holding a diverse long portfolio or buying T-bills at the very least.

    It is pretty much the same thing in my opinion. In sports you can usually get better information, and in stocks you can choose when the game starts and ends. The stock market is more accepted than the sportsbooks, but it really should be the other way around. The stock market is really all about telling stories about companies, you know which ones suck, what sector is getting the hotest,etc... Sports investing is much more techincally oriented.
