Resources Used and What i Learned

I didn't use any resources, i just bought stock that seemed interesting to me. I learned however that massive research must be taken place before actually buying stock in the real world. Its important to find stock that interests you, but at the same time, must be a positive stock to buy by looking at trends within past years and present activities.
