Stocks you bought/sold at bottom end of March

Sunday night before the market hit it's bottom the next day March 24th iirc. I sat down and put together 100 stocks in the S/P 500 that looked attractive (like shooting fish in a barrel it was that easy). Since then those 100 are up on avg. 46%, top 50 another 48% top 25 43% and my top 10 over 50%.

But because I'm poor (and bought early into it late February/early March like a df) I really didn't have any capital left to buy anything.

Just wondering what anyone else bought around that time and what it's done or conversely sold b/c they panicked, etc and what that stock may be worth today.

    Nothing ground breaking. Looked for cheaper stocks in the 10-50 range that were growing rapidly right before COVID hit. Figured to ride the rebound and hoped they would pick up where the left off when things normalized. We are still not normalized but they have picked up.

    Purple was always interesting to me since they were a disruptor for that industry. Their trends before March were good.

    Later on i looked and threw some money into ERI and Draft Kings. Both have faired pretty well although draftkings is volatile as hell right now. Hoping we see some pro sports I think they will do good in the term but who knows.

    Shopify is another one i quit on too early. The growth on that stock is so rapid for a long time some of the most bullish even jumped ship but I am huge pussy so there is that.

    Late February I put $5000 into Zoom and my brother did too.

    Bought at $96.39. Is at $260 right now. I actually saw something in advance for once. Just sold enough to get my initial investment back plus a few thousand for an upcoming vacation.

    Thank you, Shutdown!
