and superman i think money wise, Ford is a good investment for now becuase the stocks are going up like hemp said.
I really think Chrysler is done. Before being given to Fiat, the gov gave it too a company to rip it apart, and sell off the seperate brands under Chrysler. The gov't realizes they are going no where, I don't want to risk it with them...

They're a Brazilian oil company who do lots of offshore drilling. They fluctuate a lot, so it would be a risky one that could be well rewarded. I own virtual stocks for them on UpDown.com. They peak every time they find an offshore oil reserve and successfully build a driller.

Or, if you want you can buy some stocks on the company my dad has stocks in Brasil. 10 years ago he bought $8000 worth. Today, he is at $65,000 or so. He peaked at $120,000 before the global economic crisis.

PetroBras: http://www.updown.com/PZE
Vale do Rio: http://www.updown.com/VALE.P

UpDown only has very recent statistics for Vale.

I might try the first one you showed me.

The other two are a bit expensive, I want to take a small amount of money and put it into something high risk that could benefit well.

http://www.google.com/finance?q=AFTC...N&hl=en&tab=we

That's a penny stock I found. I'm going to put $10 into them. Figure it really can't hurt, maybe even $20... lol.

http://www.google.com/finance?q=PINK:PEFGF

is this the one?

That's not the same one I found in updown.com, which is the one you invested in? The one at $16, or the one at $1.69?

Google's statistics look odd. They're both PetroBras Energia SA, but UpDown gives a value of $16 and Google gives a value of $1.69.

edit: I guess you were looking at a different (?) PetroBras. Apparently there's a PetroBras PINK:PEFGF and a PetroBras NYSE:PZE, but I honestly don't know the difference.

Try this link: http://www.google.com/finance?q=PZE

edit2: I guess PINK is a different stock exchange. NYSE is the one where big companies are at.

Well no matter what you think of them, you can bet your bank M$ stock will be a sure thing. No matter what happens to the world economy, M$ will always be on top. Another one to look at is Internet Brands. That's the parent company of vbulletin.

I wouldn't invest in Apple if I were you. Their stock fluctuates based on their CEO, Steve Jobs. As a result, it can be extremely unstable at times during keynotes and press releases. People constantly judge his health and appearance as a representation of Apple as a whole.
