My new car. I'm bucking the crossover trend as long as the marketplace will let me.



Stash is an investment app that allows you to invest in stocks at $5 intervals. Figured I could throw down $25 or so a check, hopefully more soon. Been doing it since december and finally it has shown a turn around. I had to dump non-performing stocks like fedex in favor of other funds.
I got in trouble with the Mrs. for using Robinhood. I made money, but still ... I might start putting a few bucks in here and there again.

What's good and bad about Robinhood and Stash? I was thinking of doing one of those.

I always figure Dan as a Subaru guy, but I guess not. Way to shock my ill informed vision of you. I kind of like WSUs guess of a Jetta, but I'll throw out Altima just to play the odds.

I'm going with a Subaru Legacy.
You know, now I realize that's the old car! It's buried so deep, I didn't recognize that.

Anyhow, that was a 2016 Subaru Legacy in black. The new car is a 2019 Subaru Legacy in ... ahem, Abyss Blue Pearl.

I've had Robinhood for like a year or so. I started with like 150 bucks. I'm at like 75 right now! I'm uh...not so good at this.

I only have experience with Robinhood. I have no problems with it, but it does have a significant lack of information when looking at specific stocks. You need a companion app with it, FinWiz or something like that. It's nice not having any real commissions to worry about, and trading is pretty easy. They do have a "day trading" lock, so if you're using it to trade penny stocks often, it won't work without having a certain amount in your account IIRC. I've lost a lot of money on it, but that's no fault of Robinhood, it's just mine, picking poor stocks or buying at the peak rather than the valley.

EDIT* Whoops, didn't realize this was a split about some car. My bad, but that Robinhood info stays.
