What I think is that you could have made the same amount over the last few months with peaches instead of tomatoes with an identical investing strategy. If you like tomatoes and know how to cook them, then that's ok.ok but you're discussing tomatoes-botanically-are-fruits and i'm talking tomatoes-get-cooked-and-served-as-vegetables.
i'm trading my tomatoes, not as a stock proxy, but as part of a cash and cash-equivalent management strategy. Even if i held my tomatoes for income, they would still be a fairly short-term cash deployment for me. The lifetime of fresh tomatoes is only a few days.
just sold my tomatoes this am for the 4th time in 2 months. So far i'm up 3.17%, or about 19% annualized. Not that i expect to keep up that ripping rate for 12 months, but hey these days i'd be grateful for short-term cash and cash-equivalent returns of 5% per annum.
