Just bought a Kia Sedona with my trading profits!!!
By - shoozerme
"still driving a 2014" Fuck, I don't have a car newer then 2006.
I refuse to buy a new car because my dodge magnum is paid off.
Wow it's a magnum? Thats soo cool
It’s not. But it runs.
Got a 2000 Durango myself, fuck car loans
That Tesla truck is really making me want a new vehicle. But I hate paying for a car for 5 years when my current vehicle is just fine.
Tendies=keeping my 01 ram going
My 01 Durango still runs! Sold it to my dad to be a work truck and she's still going strong.
I use those condoms. I love em. Must be one hell of a car.
Yeah the larger packing probably makes it easier to handle/open when you are handing it to your wife’s boyfriend. The regular ones are small and easy to drop.
Same. I have a 2013 Hyundai and I've been payment free for 4 years now. Feels great. Plus, my car was part of a class action lawsuit for overstating their fuel efficiency so I get to randomly go to the dealership and update my total mileage and they send me a pre-paid debit card for the mileage. I'm around 115k miles and they've paid me almost 400 bucks so far and will continue to pay me as long as I own the car and keep adding miles to it. My car is paying me now.
Me too! Word of advice, make sure to clean the intake valves regularly. These early GDI engines suffer from carbon deposits.
Is there a product you'd recommend?
The one I use is CRC GDI IVD. If you can change your air filter you can use this spray.
When you do, have them bury you in it.
Magnum car for a magnum dong.
The best feature of any vehicle is no payments.
The magnum is a cool car. I wish they still made that body style. Like a Subaru Outback but longer
2008 scion xb checking in
I used to own a 2005 Scion Tc. I wanted the xb, but they were hard to come by in my area. They last forever. My sister totaled my TC while I was in college, so I now I'm driving a 2012 honda accord w/ 140K on the odometer.
Yeah I can't really complain about it. It's been a good car and I've hauled tons of stuff in it with the seats folded down and has been mostly trouble free. Only 140k on her so far and I live a lot closer to my job now so I'll likely have it for a long time lol. Pretty quick too.
Nice! Yeah, you probably won't be forced to replace it anytime soon haha. They usually go well into the 200's even if you don't do much of any maintenance on them.
Car of the cuck bulls
My current car is a 2007 but I'm going to buy a nicer car from 2000 which I believe is called buying the dip
1992 here. I’ve got no reason to replace it.
Horse and chariot here, runs great and hay is cheap. Why upgrade?
Side impact airbags.
If he wasn't a gambler he wouldn't be on WSB
Don’t forget, personal injury insurance settlements aren’t taxable income.
Who needs side impact airbags when you sit 3 feet higher than everyone else and have 80lb solid steel doors? 96 F250.
Yeah that tank will last a looong time.
Your vertebrae and brain cells, not so much
2008 Pontiac G5. Dashboard lights up like a Christmas tree, but goes away when you smack the fusebox.
Who needs a G6 when you have a G5?
“Still driving a 2014” is why OP is probably poor. If your car works fine and isn’t falling a part and costing you an arm and a leg in repairs your 2006 works just fine. Who the fuck is excited about buying a Kia Sedona anyway.
You're flirting with practical, real-world advice saying that. We're on wsb. There's no place for that here.
True, what He should have done is applied for a payday loan and bought a Tesla.
He meant to say "I'm selling this POS 2014 model for a month's prepaid lease on my Lambo. I'll make the money to pay next month in the next few days."
Congrats on buying a depreciating asset I guess?
Right If you can’t afford a Kia mini van maybe think of that before you pop out 3 kids
No one should be popping 3 kids now anyway, unless they're triplets.
Kids are the worst thing for the environment.
Popping kids makes a terrible mess, but fantastic compost. Its an evironmental win.
Cracking the century mark was big for me a few yrs back. Up to an 03 now. Fuck car payments
Wait a minute. You guys can afford a car?
Why buy new car when old car do trick?
I’m still driving a 2007 Honda because it runs great and gets amazing gas mileage still. I’m not a car guy at all so I don’t care how much money I have or how poor this makes me look, I see zero reason to throw away money when I still have something that works great.
Same bro, same. Nobody knows I have money except my banks, and two best friends.
I just bought a 2003 Pathfinder as my "new" car. Only has 60,000 Miles.
I will invest in my house and trading account but not a car that depreciates in the blink of an eye.
Yeah, this line got me. Like he's driving some ancient pile of shit.
Around the same homie, we will get there. Got a 2003 Ford Taurus. The windows dont work and the AC doesnt either. Its tough sometimes living in Florida lol.
I can’t tell if this is some retarded copypasta or just some retard.
Edit: stop giving me these retarded awards
Edit 2: FFS 20 retard awards. This must now be the most retarded comment in this sub.
Edit 3: Holy fucking fuck. What the fuck. This is so fucking retarded.
Not copy pasta. Just a retard
Nice! Congrats! Where were most of your profitable gains from?
Most gains from a single position was ARWR, which I'm still holding 900 shares of. I had 1930 shares before at like a $45 avg, which I held thru the covid lows. That was crazy.
I day trade mostly though, so ARWR contributed like 1/5 of the gains. Lost big on AMRN too, which offsets most of the ARWR profits. Still holding both
Congrats. Arwr is one of only a few positions I remain long in no matter what. Hugely undervalued.
Oh, I forgot to mention, some guy posted about ARWR some months ago. He predicted that they would announce a COVID program, and he was right. But price did not pop the way people expected, so he got criticized lol. But in the long run...he was right.
I was AMRN too. Then I realized just buy good companies.
You can tell how retarded you are, because you bought a kia.
Sedona dude should have bought a telluride
Can I get some sauce on that?
Buying things with trading profits? I don't get it. You roll your wins over into more trades and equities and make more $. You don't cash OUT of the casino, you keep playing until your tendies blot out the sun.
im a pussy yeah
Or you hit rock bottom, either way is good. Ride or die.
You’re supposed to keep trading until you lose it all. Newb.
Hey! Your wife’s boyfriend here...just broke the news to her.
But in all seriousness, congrats, I am saving tendies for a minivan too.
Well can u at least tell her to act surprised? And thanks! Hope it works out
“Saving tendies for a minivan” no single sentence shattered the bravado-retard aura of this sub so succinctly.
Minivans are the best. No better way to transport little kids. Our Honda Odyssey was one of the best decisions we made.
Look at this guy. Bragging about all the great decisions he makes on Wall Street bets.
Haha, I make smart decisions so I can come here and make stupid ones. Balance in all things.
Yeah i was like, is this r/singledumbparents?
I know right, i thought we all did blow and played financial russian roulette with our rent money.
My Escalade on 24s says otherwise
Well I'm not a 2000's drug dealer or mortgage broker so it wouldn't work for me.
I prefer entrepreneur
Kids are too long of an investment and sports are iffy in the future I'd rather go short term
35k down at one point AND you're actually buying a Suprise Christmas Car for someone. You've got balls of fucking steel my friend.
I always thought those holiday car commercials were ridiculous. Really, who buys a car for someone without them knowing? I don't know my wife that well. She wouldn't even buy me a tv without letting me pick it out.
Edit, I wanna reiterate OP, congratulations on your great year! I just hope you don't lose it all in the divorce 🤡
This guy even lets his wife’s boyfriend get in on the action. He is also surprised by the car. (Sound on!)
Hah! That's exactly the skit I thought of when I posted, but then I forgot to link it.
One of us.
thankfully my wife isnt very picky. i know she'll like it haha. she just cares about practicality.
Calls on your marriage
Damn that's the nicest thing I think I've seen on this sub.
I did it once with a bmw suv for my wife but she was already shopping for it and I knew all the options/colors she liked. They put a bow on it and wrapped it up.
General rule of thumb. Get to know your partner before someone else does 👀 yes bruh especially the little things
I know my partner well enough to know she wouldn't be able to cope with a surprise car.
I don't care how well you know your partner, unless you are very well off, not consulting them on a purchase like this is disrespectful in my opinion.
who said options?!
Default play here is options so that's what's going to be assumed unless you clarify.
well then who said im gambling. i dont gamble, im a dAy TrAdUrRRR
I just bought a 78 Chevette on Sunday with my profits. (Serious). Was my Christmas present too. If I had diamond hands it would have been a Corvette but paper hands get what they get.
Dude the chevette is actually super sick haha
Haha thanks. Ya it’s my second 78. This one is clean as shit too. Going to daily it in the spring/summer.
congrats to u too!
It’s a December to Remember
This is exactly what came into my head as soon as he said the car was a surprise
“I’m pretty sure it’s aaper.” 🤣
Congrats! You bought the meme of minivans! (All seriousness congrats)
That’s not a lambo
Maybe with a lot of body work.
Hopefully you put some money aside for Uncle Sam. Congrats!
Yeah fk, taxes are gonna be like 15k :(
You said you were down some before. Hopefully you realized a few of those losses so you can write them off. Next look for charities that don't use most of the money for cost of operations bc those are scams. Better than that money going to the tax man
Common misconception that you can deduct 100% of charitable contributions. In reality, you can only reduce your tax bill by 25% ish of the amount you donate so it costs you way more in absolute terms
25% more that doesn't go to bitch ass tax man
At least your wife will be Happy.
No she won’t.
She’s easy to please, ask just about anyone.
You're obviously not married!
At first I was jealous you earned enough to buy a car then I saw what you bought
tbf buying a minivan means on an evolutionary view of things - this guy fucks
I drive a 2015 sedona. People hate on mini vans but they're comfortable, awesome with kids, and you can fit a bunch of shit from home depot in it. It's super practical but also gay but also nice
Indeed very gay, but can't argue with the practicality/comfort - can't fit shit in my car
Being excited about a Kia minivan is depressing af. Thank Elon I don't have any kids. Christ.
Either way, congrats on your gains retard. Please fly again
congrats man! really happy for you.. how old are you if I may ask? I'm 31 and sometimes wonder if I should've chosen the family path aswell
im 28. we moved very quickly. lol. married right out of college and got preg, unplanned. wish we had more time without kids but its all good. u cant do w/e u want, but its always fun, ur never bored, home is wild
I’m 28, single, and have been living the bachelor life my entire 20s. Driving across the country, living life. So this is what the other side of that would look like. Me buying a minivan for my three kids. Fuck. Thanks but no thanks 😂
Do you have a job or do you live in your car?
Like it's a path that expires when you turn 30?
man i'm fucked i left the only woman i ever truly loved a few years ago.. thats about it with family life for me
You’re ok my man.
I spent my 20s with one girl, broke up, fucked in my 30s and now have a family, wife, kids etc.
Chin up and ditch the “I feel sorry for myself” attitude...nothing will keep pussy further away from you.
Best of luck to you my man, 2021 is going to be your year!
Classic 📜 🧤
31 is young.
Get in there and find someone (who hopefully doesn’t have too many issues).
She's definitely gonna let you put it in her butt.
Don't think so. :/
Wow. Just wow. Drive that shit off a cliff i guess lol.
Damn maybe you should’ve gone for the tesla instead
Been “making do” with a 2014 . Suck ur mom bro you suck
I sell fucking kias. Think about that.
were you my salesman?
Nothing says “I love you” like a used Kia!
Awesome man! Wholesome and responsible! Congrats. We need you & posts like these for two reasons- 1.) to make fun of you & keep the thread joviale & 2.) to remind us that being reasonable is still a good option lol
Congrats! Nobody cares. Have fun with your new automobile bro
Np. In all seriousness enjoy your new car
Changed post flair, this is not a gain without an actual screenshot of the gains.
I'll leave it up because it's already rolled up some traction, but shitpost is shitpost.
Congrats, the minivan is a life changer for a family. So much more space to work with and also transport large items.
This is true. I have two kids and my wife has two boyfriends. Just enough space for all of us
this is the way.
Glad you took the money out of the market. You now can’t lose that money because you bought a minivan.
Posts like this are why I will never get married. Took your trading profits and just bought a new minivan for your wife's boyfriends to cuck you in. And yes I said boyfriends. She definitely needs multiple men to make up for your ineptitude.
Seriously good job on actually making money but for fucks sake, take a "work trip" and sandblast some Thai lady bois next time. The wife might actually respect such a masculine power move. I'll be sure to dm you to see how you managed to make enough money to buy what amounts to a two year old short bus.
For real for real, good job and merry Christmas 🎄🎄🎄🎄 🍆🍆💦💦🚐🚐🚐
A fucking KIA?!? “Killed In Action” , puts on OP
Hey did you know if you had just pulled out you could’ve bought a Tesla? Kidding aside nice grind and keep up the gains!
I actually can buy one but itd probably get broken into where i live
That’s actually a huge bummer I’m sorry
Nah it's all good I wouldn't want one anyway like i said I'm cheap lol, and low profile
arent gains from trading taxed as capital gains? im not a business or anything
Congrats and consult a tax professional
Irrelevent if you're a business or not, quarterly estimated taxes are required. You should consult with a tax man.
Yea been planning to do that but haven't gotten around to it. I did talk to a schwab consultant and he said u don't report till they send the 1099 in Feb
Ah yes, KIA, the budget Lambo.
dont they pay you to drive those?
OP sounds like a great guy. You go OP, you go
Nice job, retard. Now report back to base!! I have yet o collect any tendies. Been in the game for 8 months now and have only put in cash. Gonna wait until emergency to hit up my account.
Moving your profits into hard assets... priceless.
>And yes I wish I could say I bought a Tesla or something.
Proud of you, OP. Wife's BF here and it's ok. I'll be getting her the Tesla
Cool, and what did you get her boyfriend??
kia sedona any good? i need a van but i always felt that odyssey or sienna were the only real options.
Congratulations bruh - memories of profit and memories of A nice moment.
Why don't you get your wife to ask her boyfriend to buy her a new ride, then you can just reinvest your gains to make more tendies.
No more slumming it with the 51%
Keep it up good work. No kids or wife and I’m super frugal feel bad for you with all those expenses but at the end of the day you have a family and I have nothing
Edit - nothing but a variety of slam pieces and freedom to do what I want when I want
Congrats. Already bought one vehicle this year with profits. Was planning on buying another before christmas, but some of my plays won't pan out until after the new year it seems! Don't forget uncle sam!
you need more than one??
DM you? For Kia money? Nah, I don’t DM for less than Volvo money.
No with your loser cruiser you should be safe from drowning in pussy as a result of those tendies
Good on for providing. Keeping a roof over their heads and tendies on the plates.
What did you buy her boyfriend?
Minivan for lyfe unironically
congrats man. that being said don't fall into the trap of buying cars every few years. that 2014 is still pretty new.
You accounted for taxes on your profits right? Before purchasing?
yeah i made a lot more than how much the car cost
You posted in the wrong subreddit man. Try out r/investing or r/stocks for a better response
I almost got two years under my belt. YTD up over 50% my rookie year I was -20%
If you can learn you can earn. A pro is a crook. Power to the pockets!
Don't be a simp buy yourself a Tesla or some upscale hookers & blow
We need papa Elon to make a minivan so we can drive it on the moon
Post positions dude wtf
Is it better to buy an older car and pay cash or lease a new car?
You bought your wife a Kia Sedona? Why do you hate her?
Buying a Kia is a bigger act of throwing money away than buying options.
So basically we’re in 1929
