  5. Seeking advice (01/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Completely new to the stock market and started trading March 1st. I honestly have no idea what I’m doing but profited a few bucks. I started off with 300 investing and made a little over 70 bucks. I’m very impatient so I keep trading at a loss and buying even at peak (I need to learn to stop and not freak out but it’s so hard lol) I’m willing to take any advice on how to choose the right company to invest in. What should I look for when investing? Also, can someone explain What are and how do calls work? Also would Robinhood do this? What are the pros and cons to calls? Would you recommend a newbie do calls? How do you choose calls and for what price?   submitted by   /u/ImmaCamel102 [link]   [comments]

  6. Question on DD and how to pursue smarter investments (13/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Question on DD and how to pursue investments that aren’t a gamble. When you go to look at an investment into an equity do you usually pick and choose random stocks on a list then proceed to do DD on that equity and if so how do you conduct that DD to be sure it’s an investment you would be willing to pursue (what steps do you usually take for DD) I am asking for this information because lately I have felt like I’m in a casino and I don’t enjoy it. I encured my first loss as well this week and don’t want to feel so out of control on an investment again.   submitted by   /u/Stock-Possibility893 [link]   [comments]

  7. When and how do you choose to buy more stocks on a buy and hold strategy? (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I started to invest recently (last November) and I'm doing the buy and hold strategy, focusing on dividends, but I'm unsure of when to buy more stocks and how to balance the amount invested on each stock. At the moment I have 9 different companies that I'm investing in, they are all from different sectors like, automotive, pharmaceutical, technology and so on and I'm investing more money monthly. Some stocks went up 30% and others down to 15%, should I always choose the stock that is underperforming to reinvest monthly or it doesn't really matter, since it's a buy and hold strategy? Any clarification on this matter would be very much appreciated!   submitted by   /u/StonedRex [link]   [comments]

  8. Which value/growth stocks would you invest in NOW ? (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello everybody, I started investing in a moment, which was very unusual. It was April 2020. No matter what I bought, it soared almost 100% in just a few weeks. Now, being relatively new to investing, the last 3-4 weeks of volatility changed my newcomer mindset from „buy, keep for a few days, sell with profit“ to „choose carefully“. As we all found out, a lot of the overhyped companies are or were massively overvalued, as the current correction is showing us. Therefore I want to „repair“ my portfolio and concentrate only on good, healthy long-term growth stocks, which can survive the test of time. In my process of researching, I have 6 favorites so far: SQUARE, PAYPAL, MASTERCARD, VISA, SHOPIFY, AMAZON. What do you think about them and what would you choose? Thank you for your valuable input.   submitted by   /u/Sweet-Zookeepergame [link]   [comments]

  10. Are there any investors on twitter, reddit, tradingview etc. that have become well known for their investments? (25/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I was reading about Michael Burry on wikipedia and read that he built a reputation on this site called Silicon Investor for his value investments back in 1996. He was so successful that Vanguard was interested in him before he started Scion Capital. My question is, does anyone know of any more recent examples of this? Like any former or current investors that has a strong enough reputation to catch the eye of real companies? I'm really curious about this because I'm sure there's a lot of great investors on these sites and I'm curious how many people like this there actually are.   submitted by   /u/parrottalks [link]   [comments]

  11. Which ETF should I choose for long term? (10-15+ years) (06/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I have landed a solid job in my career and finally have money to invest in. I’m going to be playing with stocks alittle, but I’m also planning to build a solid nest egg out of a long term index-based fund. After tons of research, I’ve narrowed down my top 3 to be (in order): VTI (Vanguard Total Market) IVV (iShares S&P 500) VOO (Vanguard S&P 500) My main criteria were low expense ratios (these are all at 0.03%), stability, and longevity. I like VTI more than VOO because VOO wasn’t started until 2010, so it’s lifetime yield isn’t a good comparison since it missed the 08-09 crash. VTI has slightly better gains than IVV over its lifetime, but IVV has had better short-term growth. IVV and VOO also had better dividend yields. My brain is honestly fried going over all the numbers and I just want to know if it really matters all that much which of the three I choose. Is VTI a good investment over the other two? Is there a better long-term fund I haven’t listed? Any advice is welcome, I’m just trying to make the smart move.   submitted by   /u/gswizzle911 [link]   [comments]

  12. Should I hold or sell bad investments? (02/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I recently started trading and have quickly learned how bad things can really go from investing in some more speculative stocks. They aren't doing terribly, but there is no guarantee how these stocks will do and it's starting to terrify me. For reference, about 10% of my portfolio is invested in these. I strongly believe that one of my larger holdings of these investments will pay off, but for the others I'm unsure what to do. I don't need the money that's invested for anything, but for the others I really have no idea what will happen to them 1 year from now. Of course, there was some reasoning to buying these stocks, but I'm starting to really doubt if I should sell for a loss or just hold it forever.   submitted by   /u/parrottalks [link]   [comments]

  13. I just wanted a little upside (04/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Seriously. I didn’t wanted that much return. I just wanted a little upside. I know exactly the rule of compounding, for me even 100K could turn out to be 1 million after 20 years (with 12% rate of return). This is just OK. But I made total 166.81% of return. Thank you FED. Everybody locking for the fast return, meme stocks, meme coins. Moreover, I was a little bit old fashioned, started with only treasury bills. I was thinking back then, it is steady, gives you 2% annually, and it seems to start upside movement. I wasn’t sure what else can I choose, so I had invested only in it in the beginning. After only one year, I made more than 30% on it. Then more from other investments. I do not suffer from March 2020 fall, because I had never invested in something hot. Nice cash position multiply my return in that year. My believe: “Don’t lose money”, I’m trying to avoid hot stocks, in order to sleep well at night. I prefer low return than opportunity to burn money. People think there is nothing to invest right now, but it isn’t true. You just have to look better. Right now, I had three names on my buy list, and I will publish full investigation report on them when the time will come. Good luck for everybody.   submitted by   /u/A_nilsen [link]   [comments]

  19. How achievable is passive income? (06/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Earning a decent level of passive income is a great financial goal to set for yourself. I’m going to break down all you need to know about making money this way and how you can make it an achievable goal. [top_pitch] What is passive income? Passive income involves making an income with little direct effort or energy in maintaining the flow. Ideally, it’s a way of making money while you sleep! Our lives shouldn’t just be about making money. Earning this way means it happens in the background of your life so you can prioritise more important things. In an ideal passive situation, there’s no direct relationship between the amount of time you work and the amount of money you make. It’s not a get rich quick approach, but it is a realistic way to earn on autopilot. How can I earn passive income? There are loads of different ways to start earning some passive income. Depending on your situation and skill set, routes to consider include: Renting out your property or even just a room in your house Sharing your skills by creating online courses or content for platforms such as YouTube Selling your own creations, such as stock photos Writing and self-publishing a book straight to Amazon Creating a blog or website to monetise through advertising or affiliate links Investing in stocks and shares that pay dividends Whichever route you choose, it will probably take some initial work to get things rolling. Although there are plenty of tried and tested ways to create passive income streams, thinking outside the box could also work in your favour. [middle_pitch] What is an easy way to earn passive income? This is where things get exciting. There are plenty of things that you can do to help build up some passive income. You don’t have to be an entrepreneur or even be on a high salary to get started. Investing is a great place to start because you can kick things off with a relatively small amount. So could find yourself earning a small passive income almost immediately. However, it’s probably not going to be enough to live on. So you’ll need to consider what you want your passive income to cover. How do I earn passively with investments? Here are two great ways to begin earning some passive income with investments: 1. Stocks and shares ISA This is a great account for investors because growth and proceeds from aren’t subject to further tax. You can put up to £20,000 into a stocks and shares ISA each tax year. Proceeds from investments in a stocks and shares ISA are not classed as part of your yearly income. So if you invest wisely, you can gradually build up a bigger stream of passive income that’s shielded from tax. If you want a more stable source of income from your investments, you could look at something like dividend investing. This means picking companies that pay dividends to their shareholders. Investing this way can be less volatile when you’re no longer looking for growth and want a more steady stream of passive income. 2. Investing solutions Although the option above is good for selecting your own investments, it can be time-consuming. An investing solutions platform can be a way to create passive income. Instead of spending lots of time researching and maintaining your portfolio, you can let the experts do it for you. Some accounts also give you the benefit of including ISAs. This way, you don’t have to put in lots of effort or time managing your investments and passive income. Investing in this way used to be really expensive, but that’s changing. For example, InvestEngine has lowered its minimum investment amount from £2,000 to £100 and they’re currently offering a £50 welcome bonus. So you can get set up with an immediate boost on your way to earning some passive income. “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.

  24. Why would one choose to short an ETF? (10/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    My understanding is that ETF's are generally a very good investment vehicle for the majority of investors because they target a very broad market. This mitigates risk and provides reasonable growth. But why would someone short an ETF? How does shorting an ETF even work? It seems like such an odd position to take when you can short a few of the poor looking companies in the ETF itself rather than the ETF as a whole. ETF's are safe investments because they invest in many companies, so why short something that is generally understood to be safe?   submitted by   /u/nams0 [link]   [comments]

  32. Getting started with ETFs - how would you allocate $2000 using the following list? (21/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm 24 years old and will begin dental school in a few months, which means I'll have ~$400,000 in debt after I graduate (US private school, fml). As a way to hopefully reduce my upcoming financial burden, I've been learning more about finance and investing and retirement accounts. I currently have about $2000 in a Roth IRA through Fidelity and want to put that money into some good ETFs. Ideally I'd like to maximize my returns via a mix of high and low risk investments, but based on my understanding, it's more beneficial for me to go for high risk because I have several decades until retirement. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I've selected 14 ETFs that have interested me and now need help deciding which to actually invest in. I understand 14 investments would lower my risk, which is why I want to simplify my portfolio to maybe 5 or more ETFs. Thank you in advance!

  35. The Three Dollar Portfolio: My Framework for Novice Investors (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Get Started This document attempts to describe a system that: Is cost effective and accessible for any range of income. Incentivizes curiosity. Adapts to the investor that uses it or grows it. Ultimately, what the following strategy written is a strategy knowing as “Focus Investing” which is a style that embraces volatility and rigorous decision-making. The reason this document is written is because there are systems in place that allow for automated investments for as little as a dollar a month. That is an incredible tool that opens access to the markets from people’s pockets that otherwise would never be able to invest. The goal of the document is to guide an investor past two major beginner hurdles: Investing in your first stock Keeping your decision-making process under control TL;DR The art of investing will always be based on the practice of making good decisions and the practice of maintaining the correct temperament through the good times and bad. You have to be comfortable missing out and you have to stay confident in a self-respecting strategy. The Setup There are three primary components, so it will cost an investor as little as $3 a month. The automations that allow this to happen are: Monthly scheduled deposits Dividend re-investment Recurrent $1 daily/weekly/monthly investments The three components that work together in a step-by-step assembly-line: Save cash to be prepared for proper opportunities. Maintain a pool of sound and common sense ideas to control decisions(ETFs) Create a list of assets that feel as valuable as property such that initially purchasing and finally selling the asset is a time-consuming process. My recommendation is the following on a recurring schedule: Purchase $1 of your favorite company that you analyze rigorously. Purchase $1 of SPY ETF to diversify Hold cash to practice having saved cash for good opportunities. Never allow yourself to hold more than 10 assets. The reason that I recommend this setup is because you will inevitably have a million questions that may feel like they need to be answered. And often times you best choice is to not make a choice at all. Your goal, again, is to master the decision-making process and not the action of actually investing. It is the nature of feeling uncertainty to ask many questions as a means to gain control, but truthfully, most of the best investments are often the most obvious ones in your respective expertise. An auto-mechanic that figured out to invest in Autozone and Home Depot is fundamentally as effective as a PhD engineer that invests in Tesla. You are young. So take your time. Time will always be your most valuable asset, so use it and spend it wisely. My $720 setup is as follows, with each stock written about at length in my profile. $120 cash (waiting to invest in MOD Pizza and Impossible Foods) $120 split up into 30 sector-targeted stocks/ETFs $120 per asset (Autodesk, KSU, Pinterest, Square) http://imgur.com/rrwyJOe   submitted by   /u/notbrokemexican [link]   [comments]

  39. Moving Investments Into a Roth IRA (17/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello all I've essentially come to the realization that I should switch my account to a Roth IRA. I know that you can simply flip a switch and make the change and that it will require me to sell my stocks and then use the proceeds to fund the roth. As of now if I cashed out my Schwab account it would find about 4 years of IRA contributions. When I started my schwab accounts I didn't know about different accounts and I initially started it to use money from a CD to buy an ETF I can't name in 2017 ish. I guess my questions are should I seek to buy the stocks that I sell from one account in my IRA? Should I focus more on switching to ETF's? Looking at ARKF, VOO, VTI and maybe XLE. The account that I will be selling positions out of to fund the IRA is heavy on ETF I can't mention, followed by mostly energy stocks with good dividends (OKE, RDS-B, BP, EPD, USAC, KMI, ENB), then I have some DOW, EXPI (purchased at $8), KO. Lastly as far as additional information I am 28 years old, working steadily in a job that will provide me with a pension when I retire. I have a mortgage that I owe less than 100k on and live within my means. Thanks in advance for your help or suggestions.   submitted by   /u/nkrell_doh [link]   [comments]

  40. What to do on green days? (15/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I started investing right at the beginning of February due to a certain meme stonk that shall go unnamed. I understood the risk, lost some money, and started to seriously get into investing. I feel as if I have learned a lot, and am actually positive in my investments now. I invested in ATHs in almost all companies that I have in my portfolios but averaged down throughout February and March and caught the bottom on a few of my favorite companies. This allowed me to mitigate losses and actually come out ahead as of today. Now my main problem, I dont know what to do on green days like we have been having recently. All I see is a company that was worth x amount last week now being worth far more today and I'm tempted to wait to see if the price drops to buy more. Is this a good strategy? Would love to hear what everyone else does on green heavy days and weeks. It just feels weird that I seem to be paralyzed into inaction on positive days. Also, bonus question. I have a couple companies that I believe will only go up long term and have recently started to look at call options. It seems like an almost too good to be true scenario that long term calls at affordable prices where you can leverage 100 shares for a significant price reduction on the shares. Would it be intelligent to buy calls 1 to 2 years out if you believe the company will go up? Or should I just stick to buying the stocks themselves?   submitted by   /u/Ka11adin [link]   [comments]

  42. Why would someone choose to short sell over buying puts? (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m serious, for the life of me why would anyone choose to short a position when you could buy put options? So from what I understand when you short a stock you effectively borrow it from your broker and sell it. You are hoping the stock price will fall and you can buy it back at a later date for less money than you sold it and return the stock back to your broker. With this option you have limited gain (because at some point the stock with worth nothing) and unlimited risk of loss if the stock price shoots up. With put options you purchase the right to sell at a strike price (please correct me if I’m wrong) which ideally would be above CMV. Buying put options you can only lose as much money as the contracts cost (as opposed to short selling where if the stock price keeps going up you lose more and more money) and as the price of the stock drops the value of your put contract goes up exponentially. So why would someone choose to short sell vs buying put contacts? I just don’t see any advantages to short selling.   submitted by   /u/Ever-Wandering [link]   [comments]

  47. This new app helps make ‘green investing’ as clear as the sky is blue (20/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Green investing is a relatively new concept. We all want to try and make better decisions to reduce our impact on the environment. Sometimes, it can be a simple act like avoiding plastic straws. Other times, it can be a little bit harder to figure out the least harmful decision to make. This is especially true when it comes to our finances and investing. Thankfully, there is a new app to help you check the carbon footprint of your investments, helping you build a greener portfolio. What is green investing? Green investing is slightly different to other forms of ethical investing. ESG investing and socially responsible investing (SRI) tend to focus on the big picture. Sometimes this can be unrelated to the environment and more to do with things like business practices. A green investing approach focuses more on the environment. However, researching the carbon footprint of each of your investments would be a lot of work. The good news is that there’s a new app on the scene to crunch the numbers and do the work for you. What is this magical green app? Launching soon and free to use, Sugi lets you easily check how green your investments are. All you do is pop in your investments or funds and it gives you a breakdown of the annual carbon impact. You can also see industry averages and check how your picks compare to similar investments in the market. This means that you can easily keep an eye on how green your selections are. Even better, you can link it up with your portfolio to automatically scan things. Josh Gregory, Founder and CEO of Sugi explains: “While Covid has accelerated awareness and demand for green investing, it’s hard for retail investors to take action. Research shows that over 75% of UK investors want their investments to have a positive impact; however, only a small proportion of people actually follow through with it.  “The reasons for this vary. Sustainable investing is full of jargon and investors are rightly concerned about greenwashing. Another problem is ESG ratings: they’re meant to simplify complex issues but are themselves very confusing – even for experienced retail investors. All of this ultimately stops more people getting involved. “By providing users with simple, objective data, Sugi aims to make green investing easier, understandable and more accessible for everyone.”  How do I get started with green investing? If you are a new investor, completely fresh to the market, you should check out our complete guide to online share dealing. You’ll need to have a share dealing account set up somewhere before you can link up to an app like this. Everyone has their own idea about what is green enough for them. These days, there are a lot more options for you to choose investments that match your moral views. Creating your own investing strategy is something that will give you greater control. It can also allow you to make your investments as green as the sky is blue if you would like them to be! “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.

  49. Options help (03/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I'm trying to learn what options are. I think it is where you pay a deposit on a stock so you can get a shitload more and sell them all if it goes up but if it goes down, you can choose not to buy it but lose your deposit. Like if you had $1000 and want to buy a stock that is $10 that you think will go up. Instead of only able to buy 100 shares, you can put that 1000 down and get like 1000 shares. If the stock goes to $20/share, you have $20k and can sell for that. But if it goes to $5, you can choose not to buy and lose your $1000 deposit. Am I close at all? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you   submitted by   /u/sdrewusmc42 [link]   [comments]
