  4. Retirement plan (14/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Long story short, I was talking to one local multi-millionaire and he told me the story behind his fortune when he was a bit tipsy. He's in his 60s. So, this guy claims he never was really the wealthiest guy out there, quite the opposite he was working hard to survive from month to month like most people, saving some small amounts of money to buy himself a car or house over the years. I was actually amazed because everyone knows that at the moment he's a multi-millionaire, so I asked him directly how is this possible that he's a millionaire if he never really got any fortune in his life, and that was the moment he told me 'son, you're still young, I'll give you the advice I've had got from one of my late old friends back day. Put $100 on stocks every week, that's it. That's not much, you won't even feel it missing, but over the years your money will be stacking, and be growing over the years. That's how I became a millionaire after cashing it a few years ago.' He said that he invested in some copper company. This leads to a few questions: 1) is such a strategy really worth it? 2) if so what companies are worth putting your money into long term? 3) should I go on the market alone [via robinhood] or perhaps use some investment groups? 4) side question, how investment groups actually work? Are they giving you any warranties such as 'if you lose, you'll get back 80% of your deposits back?"   submitted by   /u/LuqmaisteR [link]   [comments]

  13. did Motley Fool beat you as a child? (20/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    really tired of this baseless trashing of Motley Fool. they're not demons trying to trick you into anything nefarious. no, they don't offer real DD and what they do offer isn't worth it if you are comfortable doing things yourself. however, as an absolute and nervous beginner with very little time on my hands for teaching myself, i found their rudimentary advice helpful and had at least a +50% return on the stocks that i invested in based on their advice. i didn't renew my subscription because by the time it ended their quite simple as vice was useless to me. but seriously, its just a company that offers a very simple, dumbed-down product. they're no more a 'scheme' than any other site with a lot of followers which offers investment advice. it would make a a lot more sense to be infuriated about how your attention is monetized by sites like facebook, google, and even reddit than it does to bitch about a site that openly tells you what they're trying to sell you and uses classic upselling technique to max out their income. if you don't want the child-proof advise they offer, just don't buy it and move on. it's hardly the basis for a freaking social movement.   submitted by   /u/codebcode [link]   [comments]

  21. No it’s not a Casino!! Stopping calling it one and you may start to see it’s potential! (12/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    To all the new and uninitiated welcome to the world of stocks and first off stop thinking it’s a casino! Please do not call the stock market a casino, it is not. If you treat it like a casino by having a few beers throwing some cash at something you know nothing about and hoping it’s your lucky day then you are the casino not the stock market. The stock market is the most powerful wealth generator in existence and it has few barriers to entry allowing anyone to build a secure and comfortable future for themselves and their family with virtually no risk and very little work. The only real barriers to succeeding are people’s own impatience and inconsistency and seeing past the dreadful veil of terrible riskiness the financial industry tries to drape over it to hide it from the man in the street. They want you to think it is a casino because most people have a deep held belief that casinos are rigged and sinful and in the end you will lose. They want you to think this so that you will give your money to the sales people they call financial advisors who are the only people legally allowed to tell you specifically what you should do with your money, oh the hideous irony in that! Then they will use your money to make a shit ton of money and give you back a little bit of it and pat you on the back for being sensible and careful. Meanwhile they will take their massive bonuses to the nearest chicken tendie shop and choke on their root beer laughing at your impoverished lifestyle. Once you have seen through this veil of deceit your biggest enemy is time and even that can be outmanoeuvred with good fortune and a fair wind. Anyone can grow a small sum into a fortune with the stock market but it’s even more powerful than that and the real potential is growing a fortune for your entire family and your future generations. I’m a thinking of publishing a simple man in the street roadmap for this process so if people think this would be useful please say so in comments and inspire me to actually do it. In addition if you want deeper background on how the stock market ought to be working for you the Motley fool’s book is an easy and worthwhile read I would highly recommend. Just look up motley fool on amazon.   submitted by   /u/ragerokit [link]   [comments]

  22. Who is the richest person in the world? (19/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is back to being the world’s richest person six weeks after ceding the top spot to Tesla founder Elon Musk.   Earlier in January, Musk had become the world’s richest person after Tesla’s share price soared. But on Tuesday 16 February, Tesla’s shares fell by 2.4%, wiping about $4.6 billion (£3.3 billion) off Musk’s fortune and ultimately knocking him off the top of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.   Here’s a rundown of the five richest people in the world right now and a brief overview of how they made their fortunes. 1. Jeff Bezos Current worth: $191 billion (£138 billion) More than 90% of the outgoing Amazon CEO’s wealth is tied to his 11% stake in the company, which is valued at £174 billion. Amazon is the world’s biggest e-commerce site. The company witnessed massive revenue growth in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic that has resulted in more people shopping online than offline. He also owns Blue Origin, a space exploration firm, and the Washington Post newspaper. 2. Elon Musk Current worth: $190 billion (£137 billion) Musk is the CEO of electric car manufacturer Tesla whose shares have surged by more than 700% in 2020, making Tesla the world’s most valuable car company. The 170 million shares he owns in the company increased in value by more than $100 billion in 2020. Tesla’s journey is a testament to the benefits of long-term investing. Despite plenty of wild swings, those who bought shares in Tesla right from the beginning and held onto their investment have seen its value increase exponentially from $17 per share at its IPO in 2010 to its current price of around $800. That’s an increase of more than 4700%! Tesla recently revealed that it has invested about $1.5 billion in Bitcoin. Musk is also the owner and a major shareholder in SpaceX. The company’s fortunes have also risen in recent times after a new round of funding that propelled the value of the company to $74 billion. 3. Bill Gates Current worth: $137 billion (£99 billion) Bill Gates has been an ever-present name in the world’s rich list for the last three decades. Much of his money came from his stake in software company Microsoft, which first made him a billionaire in the late 1980s after going public. Gates has sold much of his stake in Microsoft over the years. Right now, he holds just a little over 1% in the company. The majority of his current fortune is derived from Cascade Investment, a holding company that was created with proceeds of Microsoft stock sale and dividends. Cascade owns stocks in dozens of public companies around the world. 4. Bernard Arnault Current worth: $116 billion (£84 billion) French national Arnault, the richest man in Europe, is the chairman and CEO of LVMH, which is the world’s largest luxury goods company. Brands under LVMH include the likes of Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Hennessey. The bulk of Arnault’s fortune comes from his 97.5% stake in Christian Dior, the luxury fashion house that also controls 41.2% of LVMH. Together with his family, Arnault also holds an additional 6.2% stake in LVMH. 5. Mark Zuckerberg Current worth: $104 billion (£75 billion) Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of the world’s largest social media site Facebook. In fact, much of his fortune comes from his 13% stake in the company that had its IPO in 2012. Like his fellow tech billionaires, he has seen his wealth soar during the pandemic as more people have gone online, causing the value of companies such as Facebook to rise. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

  23. After 30 years, the Nikkei Japan Stock Market is still recovering after their crash, What are the chances it could happen to the US? (23/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    From my understanding, Japan seems like an incredibly growing country, especially during that time, with all the tech, car companies, Nintendo, video games, food, culture, and everything innovative that was coming out of there. Supposedly, the reason the Japan Nikkei stock market crashed in the early 90s was because everything was ridiculously overvalued, at high PE Ratios. Here in the US, we're now the country with lots of innovation, but we also saw multiple stocks rally up several folds last year, several with PE Ratios in the couple 100 to even over 1,000 range, like Tesla, Zoom, SQ, the 1st of which is inside many major index funds. Is there a difference between what we're going through and what Japan went through that time? I'm actually genuinely wondering and asking, and I know with any post related to something more bearish, someone might get sensitive about it, so hopefully someone can openly explain it from the other side, thanks!   submitted by   /u/LifeInAction [link]   [comments]

  24. ???? Future-Fortune: I've built a financial future calculator (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.future-fortune.com Hi good people of the internet! I Know, I know, there are enough financials calculators out there. This one helps me a lot in planning my future, and as an avid stock investor for years, I needed a tool which can tell me when will I finally have enough money and approximately how much. Key Features: Easy-to-use, pleasing-to-the-eye (hopefully) design Range sliders for various parameters, such as expenses and yearly return rate Table of generated data, per year, where special extra sum can be added (ex. inheritance income or house-buying spending) Can create many future projections and compare between them using the line chart Changes to parameters are applied on-the-fly, which is helpful The URL reflects the current parameters so it could be shared with friends All changes are saved locally on your browser, so no data is lost on refresh Start by selecting the amount of years to run the projection for, and see the result on the line chart. The "random" Return Rate is calculated using a normal distribution with a slight skew to the positive side, to mimic real-life stock-market investments, although this calculator is not meant strictly for those kind of investments, it can also work for *real-estate* for example. I had fun creating calculator, and hope that you will find it helpful and would love hearing your thoughts!   submitted by   /u/yairEO [link]   [comments]

  25. Reddit’s WallStreetBets has a new favorite stock (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/reddit-wallstreetbets-favorite-stock-181749222.html Chris Morris Mon, June 7, 2021, 2:17 PM Chris MorrisMon, June 7, 2021, 2:17 PM BB+13.78% GME+12.74% GameStop and AMC are trading at levels no one could have imagined a year ago. Now, Reddit’s r/WallStreetBets community is looking for the next company whose stock is set to explode—and seems to have settled on Blackberry. The company behind the once iconic line of pagers and smartphones has seen its shares increase 137% year to date. That’s nothing compared to the 1,472% increase in GameStop and the 2,705% bump for AMC, but it’s the biggest surge the company has seen in two years. And, judging by chatter on r/WallStreetBets, interest is growing. A look at the subreddit Monday finds seven of the top 20 posts are dedicated solely to Blackberry. (Four others are focused on praising Clover Health Investments.) The stock is currently trading in the $15-$16 range, but the most enthusiastic investors are hoping to see it hit $50. “Don’t stop, BBelieving!!” encouraged user TehlorO. Meanwhile, user Substantial_Diver_34 showed a screenshot of what he says is his portfolio that is 100% committed to Blackberry, with over 6,400 shares. It was, at the time of the shot, down $14,000. The post is entitled “What have I done?” Other users gave nothing but encouragement. “I'll tell you what you've done: You've guaranteed your place amongst the millionares,” wrote kingandr3, while Firesice offered “You put in a winning bid...just needs a little time.” WSB bulls say Blackberry has grown from being a phone company to a cybersecurity firm that has deals with [hotlink]Amazon[/hotlink] and others and could be well positioned to take a position in the electric vehicle marketspace. Analysts aren’t as sure. Four firms currently have “Sell” ratings on the company, with only one suggesting investors buy. Of course, the r/WallStreetBets effect often defies the logic of analysts. AMC and [hotlink]GameStop[/hotlink] were floundering a year ago. Now, their stock prices and market caps have increased so much in recent months that they could join the Russell 1000 by the end of the month.

  26. Amazon exploring opening outlets selling home goods, electronics (02/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://fortune.com/2021/04/01/amazon-outlets-discount-home-goods-electronics/ Amazon.com Inc. has explored opening discount retail stores selling a mix of home goods and electronics, a potentially significant expansion of the company’s growing portfolio of brick-and-mortar locations. The outlets would carry unsold inventory sitting in Amazon’s warehouses at steep discounts, according to two people familiar with the plans. The company has considered opening permanent stores, as well as pop-up locations in malls or parking lots, said the people. The plans were preliminary and under discussion last year, but the pandemic and new Fresh grocery chain forced many employees to focus on day-to-day operations. This is a very good idea. Unsold inventory occupy the space and will cost company time and money. By opening the discount retail stores, it will be able to sell all the unsold inventory at a fast pace and save more warehouse space for useful inventory. This is also a good reopening strategy trend, which open physical stores to attract more customers to buy amazon products and invite them to become prime member. Many retail stocks are currently near 52 week high, so amazon could this the discount retail stores strategy to compete with them and increase retail market share. Investors will like any idea that amazon could increase revenue and the stock will be more attractive.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

  34. Difference between Ford Motor Company Stocks (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I’ve been doing some research into the Ford motor company and their stock, as I am interested in investing some money in them. However, there seems to be 3 different stocks all under the Ford motor company brand $F , $F-PRB , and $F-PRC. Now all 3 of these trade at different values, and have different metrics, but they all say Ford Motor Company. I know that for the Coke-a-cola company they have a few different “Stocks”, but one is the actual company, $KO and the other is the bottler $KOF. I can’t see the difference here between the 3 Ford Motor Company stocks though.

  36. Google street view should be one of your first things to check when you think about investing in a stock. (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Forget the balance sheets, the financials , the ceo, the board etc. Before I do any of this, I tap the head office address of the company into Google and look at it on streetview. It might sound simple, but bear with me... If you get chance to watch The China Hustle on Netflix, do it. It's about how Chinese companies performed security fraud to get listed on the NYSE/DAQ with nothing but lies about how big, good and profitable they were. Basically, they said they were billion dollar companies. Nobody from the SEC or the US bothered to check and took their word for it. The documentary spoke to a short seller who uncovered the fraud. The very first alarm bell was when he looked at the road leading up to a paper plant that claimed it was running thousands of tonnes of high quality paper in and out daily. The road leading up to the site was a crappy dirt track road that could no way, take the number of trucks the company said they were running. Now, they physically went out to check the site, but theres a lot from Google Street View you can learn. I find this more so with chinese companies. As an example, I looked at a chinese company earlier that had a market cap of around 3 billion. Don't ask me what, i've checked so many today >_> Anyway, their head office, as listed on their website and SEC filings was nothing more than a shop in a line of other shops. It looked total garbage. I nope'd out straight away. The one thing I learned from the documentary, even more so about Chinese companies, is they present to the SEC/Banks whatever they want, and NOBODY checks it. They are 'auditors', as in they 'audit' what is presented. They are not physically checking if a company is trash or not. That's your job i'm afraid. Nobody will protect you, especially the banks or brokers, because they take your money. Now, bear in mind this might not be flawless, as companies might have holding adresses or something, but I find most of the time it's all good. This just doesnt apply to China. Check Europe or the US. Is the company that is "growing, expanding and breaking out" still running its office out of some fucking ghetto with some cops in the background of streetview clearing up some bodies? Or do they have plush offices in an affluent area which probably cost a small fortune to upkeep. This is by no means flawless, but if you wanted to buy a house, you'd want to look at it first. Same for a car. You wouldnt just read the stats/dimensions on paper. Why should stonk be any different? I think streetview is a very under valued tool when it comes to doing some DD and can give you a fairly good impression of if what they present on paper could be mirrored with what they present in real life.   submitted by   /u/electricp0ww0w [link]   [comments]

  40. Your favorite industrials (06/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’ve worked in Fortune 500 supply chains since the 08 recession and never seen anything like 2020 and the start to 2021. The bull whips have been insane and if reshoring becomes anything more than a flavor of the month in boardrooms, certain industrials could boom on top of what already are “expensive” share prices currently. My current industrial holdings are split evenly in shares between ETN, ROK, JCI. I’m fully invested to the extent I’m willing to for this sector. Is there something else you like better, or one among those three you don’t like? Especially appreciate any input from mfg engineers, procurement professionals, etc. Edit: I’m more interested in the infrastructure/robotics/machinery plays than the goods producers themselves that will likely have to invest heavily to restructure supply chains.   submitted by   /u/mikecm11 [link]   [comments]

Let´s compare Wikisoft, which is a relatively new company, with its peers and what they have accomplished: Hired raised 132$ million since founding in 2012. More than 10,000 of the top companies using Hired and can save significant time screening their candidates. In fact it is claimed that it reduces the time to hire by 33%!

  43. Historical price estimates (25/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi all, are you aware of any database of historical price estimates that doesn't cost a fortune? I'd like to run some python analysis to separate the wheat from the chaff, but the only one I've found (Quandl) costs a delightful 1.2k. If you are aware of one and willing to share I am happy to share my findings :) From the sample data on Quandl you can see that predictions for some instruments are actually not too bad, but some are way off https://imgur.com/kuhgrOn Now I'm aware that analyst price target are like opinions and a-holes, everybody has one, but I'd like to see if there is some usable meaningful correlation somewhere where some alpha can be extracted :)   submitted by   /u/davodesign [link]   [comments]

  44. Question for you let’s say company A acquires company B in February. March rolls around and it’s time to announce Q4 earnings... (22/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Do the earnings of company B during Q4 now get combined with those of company A, even though the acquisition closed during Q1 prior to the announcement of Q4 earnings? This is in relation to a stock I own, LMPX. They made a monster acquisition relative to their size, that I believe will balloon their earnings 5-10x. They are announcing Q4 earnings on Thursday. Will company B's numbers be counted with their own when they announce Q4 results? Thank you in advance.   submitted by   /u/bearwave [link]   [comments]

  45. $FROG made big changes to their customer pricing model last week and there has been zero PR about it (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    As of the time of this posting, no news or PR has been posted about this. On April 2, while the market was closed, JFrog quietly made a major change to their licensing/pricing model. So what does this mean for the stock? A study of Fortune 500 companies found that increasing subscription prices by 5% results in a 22% jump in operating profits (http://users.metu.edu.tr/mugan/Hinterhuber%202004%20value%20based%20pricing.pdf). Details of their new subscription model is live on JFrog’s website at https://jfrog.com/pricing/#hosted. A summary of the changes, as far as I can tell: Pricing changed for all tiers, increasing cost per customer by 10-40% depending on what product they own All their subscription tiers now mandatorily include their vulnerability scanning component, which was optional under the previous model They have introduced some utilization-based pricing that will allow for organic growth as customers increase their number of development projects Additional Info: I made a post not long ago about JFrog, the software development/deployment infrastructure company that powers over-the-air updates for autonomous vehicles and other IoT hardware: https://www.reddit.com/r/trakstocks/comments/mcftsx/frog_due_diligence_the_necessary_next_step_for/   submitted by   /u/Thermotox [link]   [comments]

  46. How can I find any information on a company I have an old paper stock certificate from 1917? (15/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a situation like the post on the front page earlier today. I found a paper certificate from my late great grandfathers things for 100 shares of a company named The Southern Alberta Land Company Limited. I have tried googling the company and I can't find any information on it. I don't know if the company has long gone bust or bought out or still running. I was wondering is there any way to find out about the company, if the shares are worth anything. Is there any resource or website out there to discover these things?   submitted by   /u/epicness_personified [link]   [comments]

  47. Crypto for the uneducated. Could this take off or flounder? (CKB) (22/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Was interested in getting into crypto. The last few years the sector has really taken off. But the past 6 months it’s changed drastically and everything is moving quick. Bit coin is a fortune and hard for me To comprehend how much higher it could go. Dogecoin seems like more of a meme stock without much chance of it taking off too much. I was thinking about trying out (CKB) Nervos Network, does anyone have insight into this crypto? It says it’s supposed to be able to integrate into other block chains to help them develop. If that’s accurate would it not be a great one to get into. It’s sub .03cents right now. What does everyone think. Is this a winning lottery ticket if you get in early. Will it crash down to sub .01cent in the near future? Or will it stay stable and just fluctuate a few cents in either direction. I’d love to be into a stock that soars but it’s very hard to tell being so new into crypto. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks   submitted by   /u/Foreign_Pair53 [link]   [comments]

  49. Do you think CLDR is undervalued as it shifts from on-prem products to cloud-based ones? (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Cloudera has come a long way from offering on-premise Hadoop distribution to Fortune 1000 companies. They now offer private and public cloud solutions. Though the "Edge-to-AI" line seems a bit too shiny yet, even though they are pushing the machine learning platform hard. They've FIPS certified their new product, which opens then gate for government agencies to use their new products. However Wall Street does not seem to appreciate their solid revenue stream, even though it's a lot better looking than new competitors'. Even though growth is very far from stunning, can it make a good middle/long term investment in the tech sector?   submitted by   /u/AnaDubois [link]   [comments]
