Sounds nuts and it is. There is a story to it. My son has a genetic disorder that as he passed through pubity emerged. He went from studying Computer Science at Sydney Uni full time, to studying 50% load to giving it up and working as a casual warehouse guy in a computer hardware business to eventually being laid off, as due to his situation worsening he was not reliable on shifts. Best worker and they did what they could for him but let him go. I went from retiring at late 50s (after working 6 day weeks 50hr plus) for 17 years in my 30s and 40s, to continuing on as our retirement plans meant we needed to cover three adults not two. He also could not socialize normally as he needs to avoid air conditioning and usually has his eyes shut by 9.00pm. The next one came when 4 years ago he told us he had to move out as Sydney''s weather was very painful. It would also keep his sight longer. We eventually bought him a house in Coffs (over 25% of our retirement funds) and I was glad I kept working. As he was home all the time and a natural IT guy he played a lot of computer. He also had almost been killed in a car accident at 16 and had a $150K settlement that had grown to $220K before GFC and then crashed to $160K. That was the end of external planners and he decided he would invest for himself. We then allowed him to trade in our super fund. (yep pretty brave but he would either succeed or we would loose and he would stop). It was basically more about giving him hope for his mental health than anything else. He lost on Billabong and Elders and that shook him but I told him with companies know who you are investing with. Know the product the market and the people who run it. The Aust Fin Review is a sales mag. It runs press releases and calls them articles. He then took that experience and looked like he was just watching for the next few years. He had always liked AMD as a product. He backs underdogs. When the new CEO came on board he bought in at $2.20. He soon had a mill. That had been his goal to have a mill by 40. He was 35. My wife and I had 10,000 shares bought at around $6. I was not really paying much attention until she showed me he had made that mil. I said to my wife imagine if we had 20,000 share or even 40,000 shares. At the time AMD was around US$12.50 -14.00. What a huge risk. To back someone with no real track record. Was he just lucky or did he know his stuff. I visited him and stayed there for a few days. While there I saw him spend almost all his spare time on podcasts, youtube reviews, pre-release product analysis. As I walked through the lounge room he said watch this. He played on the screen, a fist person shooter game with the best Intel chip and then the AMD. I saw no difference. Once more, I saw no difference. In quiet frustration he walked to the screen and pointed at the blood splatter. "now watch again" . "Wow you are right, much better". I realised that my 35 year old son, unemployed for over 10 years had not just given up. He had worked hard and found something. Went home to my wife who always had confidence in him and said, put it all in. That was in 2017 it then dropped down from $14 to $10.00 in early 2018 but she held firm, "trust him it will hit $30 within three years, " and then boom. Oh yeah he has now gone from $1M to $3m as well. Buying him that home was the best investment I ever made. He was the healthiest he had been since 16, his mental state improved and now he is financially set. Lesson in this was know the CEO. When she joined she bought millions of shares.
