Question about truly owning a stock.

Reddit Stocks

22/07/2021 - 04:09

If I have a cash account on Interactive Brokers and I buy shares of a company do I truly own that stock? I've been seeing posts talking about how certain brokers will trade your shares and move them back to you without you knowing. I think those are margin accounts? Can someone much smarter than I explain this to me please?   submitted by   /u/0x41414141_foo [link]   [comments]

  1. Another NVDA dividend question. (18/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So i basicall understand how stock splits work but im a bit confused for how this will work with 2 dates given by Nvidia being a month apart. So what is the benefit between owning the stock before the 21st of June and whats the difference with buying it after the 21st of June? That is just my question what is the diffrerence between buying before and after the 21st of June. I understand that you own the same amount in form of value, just more shares now ( assuming price doesnt change).   submitted by   /u/TheTortillawhisperer [link]   [comments]

  2. Historical Stock Calculator? (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I've tried searching online, but didn't have much luck. Is there a tool where you can calculate if you put a certain amount in a certain stock at a past date, and left untouched with dividends auto-reinvesting in the same stock, what the total worth would be now? Thanks in advance! I'm curious in researching the age old question of whether to buy your residence, or rent and invest your downpayment instead. Obviously there are other expenses involved in owning a home as well, but I'd like to look back and see what my downpayment would be worth today if instead of buying I had left it untouched in VTSAX.   submitted by   /u/TheRealMarMar [link]   [comments]

  3. ????Options Trading???? (04/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    question ???????. Say stock XYZ is $100 and I think it might go to $105 because I feel bullish on it. Is selling a covered call on this XYZ stock a legit strategy? I ‘sell’ the covered call, not ‘buy’ it, correct? I apologize if this seems basic. I am trying to learn options and just want to be sure I’m grasping this idea of me owning 100 shares of something and being able to sell covered calls based on this. Thank you for any insight that you may have, I am deeply grateful. Happy 4th.   submitted by   /u/Lerko911 [link]   [comments]

  5. What is it that one owns precisely as an average investor of company shares? (A line of thought perhaps somewhat out of place) (04/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    More specifically, my thinking arises from the seemingly concrete dividing line between owning a majority stake in a public company, vs owning any of the rest of the shares. Is there any ultimate merit to owning parts of companies, or does this become an arbitrary detail in a scheme of profiting off of speculation about speculation?   submitted by   /u/that-ngr-guy [link]   [comments]

  6. What gives non-dividend stocks any value? (06/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I'm trying to work something out in my head. Some people were saying Bitcoin is a ponzi scheme and my argument was that no, it behaves like any other stock, options, futures, etc... But that got me to thinking. With a dividend-paying stock, you get value just from owning the stock. A payment for the amount of stock that you own, plus capital gains if people also want that sweet dividend and buy it up and increase the stock's price. Is non-dividend stock completely based on capital gains (ponzi-esque) investing? Say you own 1000 shares of GME - the only value is based off what people were willing to pay for that, and you hope more people want it to drive the price up so you can sell, right? I've read the argument that non-dividend paying companies use the capital that could be dividend payments to instead expand the company, therefore creating more value (which sounds like bullshit to me)... cause even if the company is more valuable, you still get nothing from owning the stock except the hope that more people buy the stock and drive the price up. Am I missing something here?   submitted by   /u/jamesbdrummer [link]   [comments]

  7. Would pouring 100% of my market assekts into Berkshire Hathaway stock basically be the equivalent of owning a well managed mutual fund? (09/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Maybe this question is stupid, and maybe it's been asked plenty of times before, but I'll still ask it. I'm young (early 20s) and make decent money in a very reliable government job that allows me to live below my means without worrying about job security. Because of this, I am able to consistently max out my roth ira and contribute to an additional mutual fund in a seperate investing account. On top of that, I recently inherited a low 6 figure retirement account. I am interested in long term growth and have basically all of this in the S&P 500 for realiability's sake. Here's my question: would transferring all of this into BRK-A or BRK-B shares be the equivalent of holding a diversified, well managed mutual fund, or would it be as dumb as holding all your assets in any other single company?   submitted by   /u/whatidothesedays [link]   [comments]

  8. Is have a $2 million portfolio better than owning a business? (30/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I ask this because if your $2 million portfolio were to make an average ish 10% return, that means you made $200K plus whatever you make for your job, which is awesome. Would this be like owning a business in a way except that it is completely passive in comparison to managing a business such as a owning a restaurant? Any restaurant owners here? How much are you taking home a year? I don’t care about revenue, I wanna know how much free cash flow and money in your pockets.   submitted by   /u/joeroganthumbhead [link]   [comments]

  9. Question about different exchanges (29/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Im new to investing and I dont really know how to formulate this question in google so I was hoping this community could help me. If I own a particular stock in the australian exchange (ASX) and the price of that stock increases on the US exchange does that mean the value of the stock in ASX will increase with it the next day? Or are those two prices different from each other even though they are the same stock?

  13. WTF on Dorman (03/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I have a question I'm hoping anyone out there can answer. I bought Dorman after their earnings call, and the stock had already taken it's dive, didn't hit the bottom, but I was close. Anyway my question is this morning pre-market 63 shares had traded hands, and the stock was down a $1.18, then 5 minutes after the market opened this morning, 1235 shares had traded hands, and the stock was up .88 cents. My question is what would cause such volatile swings like this? I mean there are 32.1 million shares out, how can such a low volume cause the price to move like that? It is not the first time I've notice it on this stock, so I figure I must be missing something.   submitted by   /u/dkstang67 [link]   [comments]

  16. What happens when you buy an index fund? (27/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a question about ETF's and Index funds, and what is the difference between them in terms of real assets?.So when you google this question you get:The biggest difference between ETFs and index funds is that ETFs can be traded throughout the day like stocks, whereas index funds can be bought and sold only for the price set at the end of the trading day. let's say for example there is an index that tracks 2 companies with 50% each, and there is an ETF replicate this index and it's 100$ a share, so my understanding is when I buy a share from this ETF I will be owning 50$ for each company in that ETF. But what happens when I buy a share through an index fund? I'm I contributing to these companies or I'm just betting on their performance?   submitted by   /u/tamtom995 [link]   [comments]

  18. ETN question (13/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This might sound like a stupid question to some, but my knowlage on ETN's isn't the best. Take a look at Microsofts stock, (I would post a picture if it was allowed here) it literally only goes up. Microsoft seems like an incredibly safe bet. So my question is basically, why doesn't everyone just buy Bull ETN's with gearing to increase their returns? I know ETN's are more risky, and volatility is your enemy, but microsoft isn't very volatile at all. Scrolling throught some Bull ETN's on microsoft It seems like you would make money on almost any time frame. More money than just buying the stock.   submitted by   /u/PurpleFiat [link]   [comments]

  19. Question about options (17/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I’m having trouble understanding something about options. I’m going to use an example. Today's date September 17th Nike is at $119 Let’s say I went with buy Nike $120 Call 9/18th my question is Question 1) Does the expiration date end on the 18th when the market closes or at 12:00 AM basically the 19th? Question 2) If I predicted that the stock was going up(call) by the 18th and it goes exactly as I predicted at $120 or over $120 would that mean that I just won 100 shares for a price of $99? Since it was at $0.99 a share? Question 3) Let's say the market ends up at $121 by the time it expires does that mean I made $12,001 if I sell all 100 shares? $12,100 - $99 = $12,001   submitted by   /u/PrinceGutierrez [link]   [comments]

    disclaimer: I am posting / asking here in the hope of being able to have a decent, objective discussion, not cause confusion, fud or any of that sort. background: I am part of a "movement" that owns certain securities. in this bubble of people, any objective, critical question gets downvoted and blocked. or so it seems. hence my question here. question: is there any real , validated evidence of stocks actively being traded on non listed exchanges and marketplaces (aka "darkpools"), thus making the public stock price more or less obsolete , depending on amount of shares traded via those back-channels ? or is this just something some people claim to fit a certain narrative ? thanks in advance, really looking for some insight.

    Hey, so I had a noob question. The current value of one of the stocks I'm looking at is $4.01. I use TDameritrade and when I look at the level 2 information I can see that the ask price is higher. I see someone (a company I assume?) Is asking for $6.60. Does that imply a higher value than the current stock price?

  29. Questions from a younger investor (14/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am a 28 yo, single w/no kids. I currently have approx. 6 months emergency fund in the bank. I have approx. $3k in crypto and $4k in my brokerage account. Before, during and now post-covid I have made literally almost no total gains. If I make $30 from a stock there is one I lost $30 from. I am a type of person who needs to sell a stock once it makes me $30-$40 and I am working very hard on making this trend stop because I know it is stupid. I currently have 14 stocks in my brokerage account. After doing some research it seems like it may be best to just buy 5 or 6 stocks and just hold for the long term. My questions are this: Does this sound like a good idea? I do not want to invest in all of FAANG because I believe Netflix will trade sideways/down in the next few years. I also believe Facebook is going to underperform the next 2 years. I only would want Apple, Alphabet and Google. The other stocks I like are Tesla (currently own) and Square (currently own). If I had to pick one more stock it would be Berkshire Hathaway Class B. So my portfolio would go from owning 14 stocks to 6: Apple, Alphabet, Google, Tesla, Square and Berkshire Hathaway Class B. I feel like 6 is a good number, and maybe to sell my Square and buy a bunch of ASO stock instead, or tolerate owning a 7th stock? Thoughts? Apologies but I am somewhat new to investing (started right before COVID).   submitted by   /u/Dynasty__93 [link]   [comments]

    Good people of the stock market. I’m relatively new to the game. But I’ve been able to grow my “portfolio” up about 40 percent this past year even with the last terrible two weeks and expecting it to grow to about 80 when everything gets back to normal. However - I’ve never been in on an IPO at this point and have a question - roblox seems like a good investment which I’m planning on purchasing this week when it goes public on Wednesday. If I’m using robinhood or any other app...can I purchase the stock pre market on Wednesday or do I need to wait till 930 AM? I’d rather get in as early as possible. Another question I had is I’ve heard around the internet that IPO’s tend to dip hard early on, do you lovely people usually wait for an IPO dip or do you try to get in right away?   submitted by   /u/emoguynyc [link]   [comments]

  36. Rookie question (14/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am just learning about options. I have been playing the stock market for a year or so but never wanted to dive any deeper. I have a question regarding selling a put. If you sell a put, you are agreeing to buying the shares at the strike price. What I don’t get is I sometimes see strike prices 100+% the value of the current stock. Why would anyone sell a put on a stock at that price when the option could be immediately executed and they’d be forced to buy the stock for 100%+ of its value. Even when you take into account the premium there would be quick money to be made in some of these scenarios. Am I missing something here or in reality is that how it works but nobody would ever sell a put at a strike so much higher than current market?   submitted by   /u/ovarybored [link]   [comments]

  37. Dumb question about Pfizer and their stock price (15/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi everyone. I’ve recently studied various medical companies, and one question occurred. Pfizer announced that they have developed a vaccine and are conducting clinical trials on November 9 last year. On December 11, the FDA gave them permission to use the vaccine. In general, the whole fall of last year was full of news that Pfizer is successfully testing a vaccine and is leading in this. Question: why hasn’t Pfizer's stock price increased last year? The chart doesn’t show any visible leaps except for December 11, but even then the stocks went up by only 15%. At the same time, the importance of the news about the vaccine was objectively high. Thus, the price had to be quite high as well for objective reasons. Maybe I don't understand how the market and its mechanics work, but really I hope someone here will give me an answer to this question. Thoughts?   submitted by   /u/vilnitskiy [link]   [comments]

  40. Options question (14/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So I’m just curious about this and I don’t understand all the “rules” regarding options. I’m sorry if this is the wrong sub and I’m sorry if this question is laughably dumb, I’m not the brightest. So the question is this, let’s say I want to buy 100 shares (1 contract) of XYZ, and let’s say it’s a solid S&P 500 stock. And how about the current price is $100 per share, but let’s say I buy a put contract that’s way OTM, for say $50 that expires soon. The premium will be next to nothing because there’s no way it’s gonna go that low. So what is stopping me from just buying the put and exercising it immediately for 100 shares of XYZ for a 50% discount? Are puts required to be sold immediately? Would I not be allowed to exercise OTM? Thank you.   submitted by   /u/ryuujinusa [link]   [comments]

Do they really have a difference? If they do please tell me what is different between them. What I do know is that contracts are 100 shares worth of a stock and put is kind of like shorting a stock i guess??? Lol probably all I said there is wrong but I hope you guys can help me. Also one more question should I do it because i have seen people gain MASSIVE amounts of money but I am in WSB subreddit so I have seen them lose there life savings on options.

    I took out a small margin on Robin hood just to try it out oddly, even though I have the funds to stonk around. Now my question, if someone can help, how do I pay back the margin? Is it when I sell that specific stock that I bought shares with the margin? I just need to know so I can pay it. I also if the stonk keeps rising want to keep gaining on my investment that's why I wanted to see if someone could help and answer my question. I understand if the stock goes the other way the losses come out of your account value not what you took out on margin and you still have to pay it back.   submitted by   /u/FatherOvDragons [link]   [comments]

  44. Trailing stop loss/buy question (27/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    New to trading and had a question regarding trading software/apps. While I've seen plenty of software which will allow you to create a trailing stop loss which will monitor a stock price, and sell it if the stock takes a down turn based on predefined parameters, but I'm having a tough time finding out if anything can do the opposite. Say you own shares of a stock and have a trailing stop loss on it. The stock reaches a peak and declines in price to a point that triggers the stop loss. I'm looking for something that will then monitor the stock as it is declining, then once the price begins rebounding, will automatically buy me back in on the stock if the stock price reaches a predefined parameter. What would such a function be called, a trailing buy? Maybe I'm just not using the right terminology.   submitted by   /u/starmandan [link]   [comments]

  45. New into trading and stocks, have a small question regarding buying and selling strategy (26/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Sorry if its a silly question, but I need to know if this is a valuable method of buying the dip. Lets assume I have 100 shares @ 10 dollars ( total value is 1,000). Now the stock dipped to 6 dollars making my total investment value at 600 dollars. If this stock has a previous ATH of 30 dollars, and its a new company meaning that there is a lot of room of improvement and expansion and potentially the stock will each 30-50 by the end of this year or at least climb back near its previous ATH. Is it a good idea to sell @ 6 dollars, add another 400 dollars to return the investment value to 1,000 and then buy again @ 6 ? or just hold and wait for the stock to rise ? Or do I just add the 400 dollars to my initial investment ?   submitted by   /u/bartdidit [link]   [comments]

  46. Question regarding puts (20/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hey r/stocks I’m learning options and have a question about puts. It seems like towards the end of the day (from 3:40-4:00pm) some of my put contracts skyrocket to +100% then back down to -50%. Does this normally happen at the end of the day with puts or is this a bit wacky? Especially if the stock has been climbing all day. The Jump   submitted by   /u/dredwarlord [link]   [comments]

  47. Confused about the stock market but want to get into it, why do people ever sell their stock after its lost value? (25/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Was talking to a friend the other day, he put £200 in whichever stock and ended up making a loss of £50, pulling out and keeping the £150 of the £200 he originally put in. Now I’m interested in getting into stocks but I’m not completely sure how they work, so I guess my question is, why didn’t he just leave his money in and wait just in case it goes up? So my kneejerk reaction is “because he didn’t want to lose £200” but didn’t he already lose the £200 when he put it in stocks? I mean the money went out of his bank account and into their’s. Doesn’t that mean he’d already lost it? Doesn’t it also mean that he stood a better chance of getting it back by keeping it there for up to a few years just in case it went back up again? I guess my real question is is does the stock market take more than YOY originally put in? Did he stand to lose more than £200 (like if he ‘lost’ the £200 in the same way he lost £50 would they keep taking money out of his account)? New to stocks, and yeah this is probably a stupid ass question. Just worried before I get into the whole thing.   submitted by   /u/BlackKnight6660 [link]   [comments]

  49. Question about capital gains tax (17/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Let's say I put 10k into a stock, and it jumps to 20k, and I want to just pull out 10k to cover my initial investment and leave the other 10k, do I have to pay capital gains tax on that 10k? Possibly a silly question but just want to be sure I understand, I'm leaning towards no. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/merkwerk [link]   [comments]
