  1. Why are there different gains for s&p 500 ETF’s ? (04/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    hi, sorry if this is a stupid question, i’ve been trying to wrap my head around this and it doesn’t make any sense to me. so different ETF’s follow the s&p 500 and i don’t understand why there are different returns. i will use an aproximate example where you would invest 10000$. this is for the European market ETF : VUSA - 10000 / 55 (price per share in Jan 2020) = 181.8 shares. Today VUSA is at 65$, so that means a 10 increase. 181.8*10 = 1811 profit for 2020 CSPX - 10000 / 322 (price per share in Jan 2020) = 31 shares. Today CSPX is 405 so that means a 83 increase. 31*83 = 2573 profit for 2020 Unless i’m terrible at math, can someone explain why using the same money to invest, tracking the same fund, CSPX had more returns ?   submitted by   /u/Vicious00 [link]   [comments]

  2. Where would you invest the stimulus check money if you had to invest it all today? (30/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m wondering, if you guys still had all of the recent $2000 stimulus check and have to invest it all today or in the near future in the stock market, where would you guys park the money? I’m thinking more in terms of mutual funds, but don’t really know where to start. Would love to pick your brains a little. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/thsndmiles30 [link]   [comments]

  3. I have about 600$ to invest..thinking about consolidating my portfolio and buying more shares of certain companies, which should I buy more? (06/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    so my portfolio is heavily weighted towards ICLN, as I have 80 shares of it. (bought in at 16$ a share) my portfolio is worth around 3.5k in total AMD ( 4 shares) NET ( 6 shares) i have been trying to DCA a bit, have an average cost of 55$. PLTR ( 2 shares) ENPH ( 1 share) Currently have a side gig as an actor and i try to invest when i can. I have also been looking at TSM. I haven't done a ton of research so a second opinion would be appreciated. also I am quite young (high school) and wanna invest in individual companies rather then large ETFs for the time being. My overall plan is to keep adding to these positions over time, as I have been trying to ride the wave. ( perhaps the titanic rather then a wave, given the past few weeks) ​ out of these companies, which would you put more money into and why? these are long-term.   submitted by   /u/Thefishman1 [link]   [comments]

  5. SNDL Proposed And NDVAF Said Yes! (16/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    SNDL has died. Long live SNDL. Meaning that SNDL is a brand new spanking company. Paid off all of its debt. Sits on 300 million dollars in cash. Operates a thriving pot biz. Loaded with inventory, customers, grower inputs, employees and know how. Today SNDL bought 25 million shares in NDVAF a leading Canadian pot edibles company. Result is now NDVAF is totally debt free too. My guess is that we have witnessed the first step of a merger lol. Two smallish Canadian pot companies join forces to tackle a huge expanding pot market. 4.8 million shares of NDVAF traded today. It closed at .54 cents. Picked up 5000 shares of these cheapo bad boys today. This is free money. For all of those shorts in SNDL the noose is tightening... If my fellow Einsteins want profits then now is the time to load up.... Invest in one or both. Elevator is headed up... All aboard....????????????????????????????????????????????????   submitted by   /u/RobertTheQ [link]   [comments]

  6. So who's gonna invest in Coinbase tomorrow? (13/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am curious to know who's gonna invest in Coinbase when it DPO's tomorrow? Or at least in the near future. There is a a lot of buzz around this DPO's and you can argue it is the biggest DPO of this year(ROBOLOX was pretty big too). Coinbase is a direct public offering, which means shares trading on an exchange with no previously issued shares and everyone has access to the shares at the same time. This makes it more volatile than an IPO. Anyways, who's gonna buy Coinbase tomorrow?   submitted by   /u/gorays21 [link]   [comments]

  7. Chase Auto-Invest (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Does anyone invest with Chase with their auto-invest program. Up to this point it's been decent for the last couple months since I've joined (up about 3%) but today I logged in and 3 of the funds I'm invested in through them are up close to 100% ( 46641Q613, 46641Q381, 46641Q696) and aren't listed like the other funds in the portfolio (JEMA, BBRE, BBIN etc.). Is anyone else seeing this? Is this a mistake on their end and I should withdraw and cut and run?   submitted by   /u/itoman56 [link]   [comments]

  8. Pump and Dump (01/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So this is a question that’s kind of been bugging me and I can’t seem to find an answer anywhere. We all know what a pump and dump is. But, what if a pump and dump was enacted by a single person or company? So the idea is that say I have $500,000,000 (example) and I want to invest it. Rather than splitting my assets and buying shares in multiple companies what if I was to invest in a single company. Like $GME for example. Now with a normal pump and dump, you’d basically get a lot of people to invest in a stock and then unload the shares when the price skyrockets. But if I was to invest that $500,000,000 into $GME myself wouldn’t the price then jump by a decent amount meaning I can just cash straight back out with the profits? Would that be classified as market manipulation? Would it even be classed as a Pump and Dump scheme? I don’t know why this came to mind but it’s been bugging me for a while and I was hoping someone out there would know the answer.   submitted by   /u/TheWelshRussian [link]   [comments]

  9. Want to know what's happening with APHA & TLRY today? Read this! (03/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Today APHA & TLRY announced that the merger is officially closed. Yay! Ok, but what does this mean for my stock?? If you were a holder of APHA shares as of 5/30/21 (Friday), each of your APHA shares will turn into 0.8381 shares of TLRY. This means that if you had 100 APHA shares, you will not have 838.1 shares of TLRY. Keep in mind there are NO fractional shares. This means that if your shares come out to 838.1, you will only receive 838 shares of TLRY. That number is always rounded DOWN, not up and there will be NO CASH to compensate you for your fractional share (so you can lose at most 0.99 shares of TLRY depending on how much APHA you have - which is like ~$18.56 (if TLRY is at $18.75)) If you were a holder of TLRY shares you are STILL a holder of TLRY shares. Nothing changes for you. In the announcement, the company mentions the TSX listing, but this is a DUAL LISTING. TLRY will continue to trade on NASDAQ. TLRY will ALSO trade under the symbol "TLRY" on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) starting May 5th. Really nothing for you to do here, just gives you the ability to trade them on either exchange - it provides extra liquidity. Another thing to keep in mind is the "back office" - this happens at big banks and at big hedge funds too. APHA has HALTED today and will no longer trade. TECHNICALLY you now own TLRY shares that were given to you in the merger. When those show up in your account and you have the ability to freely trade those depends on what broker you use. If you're worried about it - call them. If you want to buy TLRY today, you can. Just go buy more and then the APHA shares that converted to TLRY will be added to your position when everything settles with your broker.   submitted by   /u/Grey_Patagonia_Vest [link]   [comments]

  10. Are you young? Today doesn’t fucking matter. (18/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I work night shift and have the randomest 3am thoughts, but if you’re young today’s market evaluation does not pertain at all to you if you invest for the long term. You can view my complete portfolio in one of my previous posts, but I’m 24 with $40,000 in the market. My biggest positions are in MSFT, DKNG, SQ, V, HPQ, and ARK funds. Do I see any of these companies shitting the bed in the next 20 years? With the exception of HPQ which is my dividend king right now, no. Sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day, but I just got paid and what am I doing again today? Investing more. If the market collapses tomorrow, sure it would hurt seeing my 40k go to 20k, but does it really matter in the long run? Probably not. TLDR: stop stressing about what tomorrow brings. Invest for the long term and an early retirement ????   submitted by   /u/101emptyfireplaces [link]   [comments]

  12. Help a Novice Improve Embryonic Portfolio? (17/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I recently started investing the last few months and am getting cold feet from modest losses. I plan to invest roughly $1000 more in the next few months. I got a few shares of AAPL (I’m a total fanboy) at 135 and quickly learned I should have DCA’d. I started to diversify, adding in small $10-20 portions of GOOG and FB here or there—whenever I saw a dip. I have 10 shares of FNMA at about $2 (my friend from college was convinced it will moon...) I dabbled in crypto with about $200 (split between ETH, ADA, MATIC,BTC) but because of my timing the results have so far been dismal—so I’m here today! I’m considering UAL as a reopening play, and want to diversify out of just tech. Maybe into alternative energy/sustainability projects, and perhaps in gene mapping and editing techs but I don’t really know where to start. Since most of my assets are crashing I want to invest in some safer ETFs. I’m thinking SPDR and NASDAQ, and maybe some tech and green energy ones, and some that will profit from massive gov infrastructure spending. Again I don’t know where to start. I’ve seen a lot of mentions that “growth” stocks are bad and “value” stocks are good because of worries about inflation. But I have no idea what the difference is. Is now even a smart time to invest? I feel like I should have done this a year ago... :( I’m in this for the long haul, but I don’t want to invest in something that might be deep red the next few years (hence I’m not putting a dime more into crypto; stocks and etfs seem as safe as savings by comparison and that’s what brought me here) How can I improve/expand/diversify this embryonic, uneven, clumsily assembled portfolio?   submitted by   /u/redratus [link]   [comments]

  14. Best growth funds to invest in young. (06/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I saw a post earlier today I want to say it was on r/stocks but I’m not sure. One person mentioned what should I invest in at 17 and many people commented growth funds. So my question is what are some good high growth funds to just put money into regularly? I too am 17 and have a decent size portfolio for my age mostly dividend and blue chip stocks. I want a fund that is pretty stable and but has lots of growth potential. If a dividend is also included that’s great. If anyone has funds they’ve researched or invest in themselves I’m all ears. Being able to invest an x amount is also important to me so a mutual fund will be ideal but like I said if anyone has any sort of fund they would like to share I would love to hear.   submitted by   /u/Cooper-N [link]   [comments]

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/02/17/cathie-wood-says-her-confidence-is-growing-in-tesla-ark-invest-has-been-adding-to-position.html Cathie Wood said Ark Invest is still bullish on Tesla and continues to buy up shares of the electric carmaker. Cathie wood is managing the ark funds very well and she still believe that tesla will be able to transform the world. Arkk and tesla are both going down now and investors could buy those shares now for a long term holding. Tesla under $800 is a good entry point, with tesla start to entering India market, that will be a big grow opportunity.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

  17. Is it wise to invest in Coca Cola for Dividends? (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I am a new investor and while I am learning more every day and looking into stuff more and more, Coca Cola has caught my eye. Basically, coca cola (I'll just say KO for now on) was shown to have a div/yield of around 3. On top of that, KO isn't going anywhere any time soon, and even though it's a gigantic thing, it's only at around 54 dollars per share. I'm thinking of buying a bit more shares of this than I normally would, around 19-20 or so, so I can get a decent amount of dividends and put those back into investing. I have tried to play it as intelligently as I could, and while something may seem dumb, to me it made logical sense. I've mostly been investing in ETF's, with only Visa being my one blue collar company. I was wondering if it would be wise to then buy a few of KO as my next blue collar company, and buy more for the dividends aspect too. I do not want to invest in random stuff I don't understand like crypto, and I just want to be a long term investor. So again, as intelligently as I could think My comparison, my portfolio right now is: 2.51 shares of VOO (Vanguard S&P 500 ETF) 3.02 shares of V (Visa)1.05 Shares of SPY (SPDR S&P 500 ETF) 2.53 shares of VTV (Vanguard Value ETF) (I plan on buying a few shares of KO but here's where I come to ask if it's worth it to buy more, around 19-20 or just buy a few like I did with the others) Thanks for the help and if you read this far, thanks for reading this far too.   submitted by   /u/MythrowawayAcc5678 [link]   [comments]

  18. ARK saw today as a buying opportunity for PLTR (17/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Cathie and ARK bought about 1.6M shares of PLTR today on the earnings price drop. It is still only a ~1.2% weight in ARKW after the purchase, so it is not a huge holding (#32 in the fund), but this was a ~67% increase in shares held. Yes it is a speculative investment but I see this as another positive sign for the future of Palantir.   submitted by   /u/FF_Junkie [link]   [comments]

  24. 3 ways I aim to generate £250 a month in income from UK dividend shares (14/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    UK dividend shares are companies that pay out income to shareholders. If I buy shares in the business, then I become a shareholder. In this way, I’m entitled to the dividend paid out, and can work out my payment amount depending on how many shares I own and the dividend-per-share. Over time, I should be able to build up my dividends to a level I’m happy with. In this case, I’d like to generate £250 a month. To begin with, I need to assess how much I can afford to invest. This will then dictate which UK dividend shares I need to buy in order to make £250 a month. Each UK dividend share offers a constantly changing dividend yield. This calculation looks at the ratio of the last dividend-per-share that was paid, relative to the current share price. The share price changes all the time, as does the dividend yield. However, if I’m looking to invest right now, the swings in the yield over the course of a day or two shouldn’t materially change my opinion. Investing an upfront sum The larger amount of money I can invest upfront, the lower the dividend yield I need to target. For example, the FTSE 100 average dividend yield sits around 3%. So if I had £100k to invest, I could achieve my goal of £250 a month in dividend income just from the average yield. The benefit of this method is that I don’t need to take on high levels of risk for my investment. If it’s the average yield, the companies I pick at this level should be stable. The downside is that the initial investment needed into UK dividend shares is quite high. A second way would be to target a much higher dividend yield, enabling me to invest a smaller amount. I could buy several stocks that offer a yield between 6% and 7% instead. At this level, I’d only need to invest around £46k to begin with to make £250 a month.  This is much easier on my cash demands, so could be preferred. However, I do need to watch out as I’m targeting the highest dividend yields possible in the FTSE 100 index. In most cases, the higher the yield, the higher the risk associated with the income payments. Regular investments into UK dividend shares Instead of going for an investment into UK dividend shares all in one go, I could look to invest every year, quarter or month. I’d prefer to make monthly investments. If I invested once a year, I could have missed out on some opportunities within that year. After all, the market moves quickly (think about the stock market crash and reversal last March/April). If I invested £1,000 a month, I could build up to my level of £250 a month in income. As with before, I could choose the dividend yield to target. This would impact how long it would take for my pot to build up. At a 3% yield, it would take me just over seven years. At a 6% yield, I would hit the mark in-between years three and four. Of course, I have to remember that my returns aren’t guaranteed and I could lose money as well as make it. For that reason, I’d diversify my investments to ensure I’m not over-exposed to one company or one sector.

  26. Palantir Woes: Hey all how bad do you think this is for Palantir. Is it time to get out and rebuy later? (18/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Palantir's direct listing in September unusually included a lockup period, which expires today. Insiders were only allowed to sell 20% of their shares in the listing, which means the remaining 80% are open for trading today. Palantir shares are down 5.8% pre-market. Palantir has faced valuation concerns with shares closing yesterday at about 274% above its direct listing reference price. Soros Fund Management will continue exiting its position that amounted to 18.46M shares as of November, when the fund said it regretted the investment and "does not approve of Palantir's business practices." The fund said at the time it had sold all the shares it could and would keep selling.   submitted by   /u/Potential-Guide-9562 [link]   [comments]

    There are several tickers you can invest in to get exposure to Volkswagen and its enormous EV potential: Ordinary shares: VLKAF and VWAGY Preferred shares: VLKPF and VWAPY The only difference between the two is that preferred doesn’t have voting rights, which is moot point for most investors. VLKPF and VWAPY are also tickers that are traded on the exchange and a lot more liquid. Traditionally preferred stock was trading at 20% discount and is considered a better bang for your buck. That 20% is also expected to slowly dissipate in future. Amazingly enough VLKAF and VWAGY (ordinary stocks) have increased a lot more last few days compared to VLKPF and VWAPY. The discount right now is sitting at about 35%, which is a bargain compared to ordinary shares. So that is potential arbitrage #1. No reason preferred should be trading at 35% discount. Another play is POAHY - Porsche Automotive Holding company. They own 53% of ordinary shares of VW! And yet ordinary shares of VW (VLKAF and VWAGY) are up 30% today alone and POAHY is up only 5%! Once again, just like with preferred shares, it doesn’t seem like investors are realizing the relative bargain they are getting in POAHY. One way or another there will be some reconciliation of these inconsistencies. And for POAHY and VWAPY it is to go up quite a bit to catch up with the recent parabolic ascent of VW ordinary shares.   submitted by   /u/Dowdell2008 [link]   [comments]

  29. Here’s why now is the ideal time to invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA (13/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    It’s already a week since last tax year’s Stocks and Shares ISA allowance expired, and many investors have dropped the subject by now. This happens every year. Once people use their ISA allowance for one tax year, they don’t give it much thought for 12 months, but they should. I think the start of the new financial year is actually the best time to invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA, rather than the worst. The early bird catches the worm, they say, and that is certainly the case when it comes to investing in equities. Every UK adult was issued with a new £20,000 ISA limit one week ago today on April 6, and it pays to use it earlier rather than later. Figures repeatedly show that those who invest on the first day of the new tax year beat those who leave it until the last minute. Early birds beat late risers It’s common sense, when you think about it. Over the longer run, stock markets go up more than they go down. So the longer your money is invested, the more time it has to grow. That’s why I wouldn’t let any money I might invest in my Stocks and Shares ISA sit idle for 12 months. Early bird investors who invested £20,000 on day one of the financial year would have £264,136 after 10 years, assuming an average return 5% a year, according to new research from Interactive Investor. Those who left it to the last minute would have £251,558, that’s £12,578 less. Over 20 years, the impact is even more stark. Early-bird Stocks and Shares ISA investors would end up with £694,385 while last-minute investors would have £661,319. That is £33,000 less, despite both investors generating the same annual return. Although most of us won’t use our full £20,000 Stocks and Shares ISA allowance, the principle still holds. The earlier investors use their allowance, the more growth and dividends they generate, and the more their wealth grows. I’d use my Stocks and Shares ISA today There are plenty of exciting opportunities out there right now, both on the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250. Some top-class companies have seen their share prices climb more than 50% year-to-date. Why wait? Early investors have come unstuck just once in the last 22 years, according to research from AJ Bell. The sharp market crash in March last year, triggered by the first lockdown, handed last-minute Stocks and Shares ISA investors an opportunity to buy cheap shares. There is little point trying to time the stock market in this way though. Nobody knows where share prices will go next. What I do know is that the longer my money is invested in a Stocks and Shares ISA, the less I need to worry about short-term stock market volatility. History shows that 21 times out of 22, the best time to invest is this year, rather than next. I’ll take those odds. Here’s an opportunity. One stock for a post-Covid world… Covid-19 is ripping the investment world in two… Some companies have seen exploding cash-flows, soaring valuations and record results… …Others are scrimping and suffering. Entire industries look to be going extinct. Such world-changing events may only happen once in a lifetime. And it seems there’s no middle ground.

  30. New to the stock world (11/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, all! So I will be graduating in May and am looking to invest in my future with stocks. I just have a few questions how to start investing? A few of these questions are, what does one invest in? How to know when and when not to invest? And does the amount you invest matter initially? Also, when to trade and when not too? I’ve tried to do research but a lot of it is word jargon to me. I majored in Kinesiology, pre-med and so I never took an economics class (I know it’s awful). Thanks for all of the insight any of you can provide. Happy trading.   submitted by   /u/medicinal_medicine [link]   [comments]

  32. Portfolio allocation tool (24/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Does anybody know of a tool that allows you to calculate how many shares or the dollar amount required to reach your portfolio's specific allocation targets? I know it's easy if you're starting from scratch. Like it's easy to understand, 10% of 1,000 is 100, so I buy $100 of this share. However, I am talking about calculating allocation targets for an already established portfolio. For example, I invest with Robinhood and already have $1,000 invested in a ton of different companies with no set allocation. Let's say I wanted to invest another $1,000, but I want to clean up my portfolio as a whole and set allocation targets for each company. With the original $1,000 invested, some shares are way over what I want my target to be, and some are way below. How could I calculate precisely how many shares of each company I would need to sell or buy to reach the overall target allocation percentages, including the original $1,000 invested? Is there a tool that allows you to do this? If not, does anybody else see this being useful? I might try to make something if nothing exists to do this yet. Thanks for any suggestions!   submitted by   /u/airick0 [link]   [comments]

  35. Question about shorting (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)

  36. Ubisoft stock and why you should invest soon (10/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    While I was in school today, like any other day, we were learning about investing stock and economics. I remembered during that that I had though of investing in Ubisoft stock for Assassins creed Valhalla, but by that time it was a few months old. Getting to the main part of the story, I thought that I could cash in on another popular game franchise, Far cry. Far cry 6 is coming out on October the 7th, and if someone invests September they have a high percent chance at snagging a low price for a share, buy low in September, sell high in October. (Ubisoft is a publicly traded company) also adding onto this the Far Cry series is immensely popular, having each one rack in a few million dollars respectively. Just like the GameStop stock rocketing up because of us Redditors and stock examiners, it is possible again too make Ubisoft the second GameStop. And as a second reminder, you don’t have to be loaded to invest either, a 10 year old kid cashed in his 75 dollars worth of shares for roughly 2,000 dollars. This isn’t a list cause, it’s more of an opportunity.   submitted by   /u/VideoGameHunter24 [link]   [comments]

Kind of wish I did, looking at how AAL and BA is doing. Was eyeing PLTR in the $23-25 range (it closed @ 25.21 today so I might still be interested) but would this make my portfolio rely too much being tech heavy? Other than that, would any of you have any recommendations or advice? (I'm not looking to diversify into a 'huge' amount of different stocks, but to be able to cover a good range of industries, in the 5-10k range per industry would be great.

  45. Best way to invest $1000 as a newbie in the stock market? (14/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello, so I currently have 5k lying around and figured I'd want to invest it. I've been thinking about investing for a long while and have been really nervous about it until recently. I've been investing 500 ish in robinhood (Since I downloaded that before everything happened), and only recently been investing my money. So far I have 1.04 shares of ORCL, 2.51 shares of RIOT, 0.152 shares of AMC, and I just placed an order for VOO ETF. Am I on the right track? I picked ORCL since at the time it was cheap enough for me to buy and that company had a good track record. RIOT seemingly has been giving me great returns already and I plan to sell it once I get a dollar or two in profit, and I have been wanting to mitigate my risks for the long term and have heard that ETF's are very good for that, so I got VOO. So now with nearly 520 invested, I plan on investing another roughly 500 to get 1k invested and just leave it at that as I'm a newbie. Thanks for the help and advice. I've watched a few videos already but so far all I've heard is "Buy companies like visa, etfs, and just wait"?   submitted by   /u/lolmaster1337420 [link]   [comments]

  46. There's a reason why people tell you to only invest money you don't need in the foreseeable future. (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've seen at least 2 post today on reddit of people claiming that they are gonna pull their money out of the stock market due to consistent losses. Most of their holding are stocks that were once popular on reddit and more than likely they bought at the very top of the hype but that's not here nor there. The fact is that if you invest money that you don't need any time soon you can just ride the wave of losses. I'm personally living paycheck to paycheck and could definitely use the money I have invested but I keep trying to see that money as LOST already. Maybe not the greatest thing but I'm definitely not dependent on it and don't plan on using it anytime soon. There's a certain Game ticker that has lost me a ton of money these last 2 weeks and I haven't bat an eye because I'm not counting on that money. I know a lot of us have been and continue to be broke and when we hear people on reddit discussing a damn near certain winner you want to jump in and make some money. But the truth is most of the time it's either a Pump and Dump and more often than not these people are just wrong. So my advice to you is if you can't afford to invest money and not touch it for at least a year whether it goes up or down then just don't invest that money. You'll most likely pull out too soon and just lose money.   submitted by   /u/ragstorichespodcast [link]   [comments]

  47. I have 3.5k and I don’t know what to do. (30/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I know that the amount is insignificant. But I’m trying to find a good investment strategy and currently this is all I cam start with. I have already opened an account on IBKR but I’m not sure how to tackle my situation. Should I buy a maximum of three or four stocks? Because diversification isn’t going to do much to me. Should I invest in something and sell it to increase the capital? Should I invest and leave it and add more to it every chance I get? How should I approach this? PS. As a muslim I can’t buy shares on leverage and I also can’t buy stocks that are harmful to humans such as cigarettes companies, gambling stocks, weaponry and such stocks.   submitted by   /u/Tomtanks88 [link]   [comments]

  48. Would you rather? (24/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Would you rather have 1 share of Amazon or 5 shares of Nvidia? I have a IRA with Wells Fargo. I have a variety of Shares in GOOGL, GOOG, Microsoft, APPL, and Amazon. Wondering what people's thoughts on EOY is for something like Amazon and Nvidia. Amazon is sitting around $3300. End of the year possibly could be $4000. So $700ish gain from today if it were to sit around $4000 on December 31, 2021. Now there's Nvidia. Currently sitting around $600. End of the year possibly could be $750ish. So $150ish gain for 1 share So 1 share of Amazon gains you $700. 5 shares of Nvidia could be $750. Now look these are just estimates. They could be spot on they could be way off. Amazon could end the year at $4500. Nvidia could end at $1000. Who knows. All I'm asking is would you rather have 1 share of Amazon or 5 shares on nvidia? Or maybe you have another interest. If not amazon if not nvidia what would you rather have if not either or. I'm only asking because I like both companies but Amazon has been idling for 9 months at the same prices. Nvidia has gained significantly. They both have Alot of potential. Something in my gut tells me Nvidia has more growth than Amazon. Like 5 years later maybe 5 shares of Nvidia nets you more than 1 share of Amazon starting today. Sorry about the 5 paragraph essay and my rambling. Hit me with some conversation please and thank you.   submitted by   /u/SeanEazy [link]   [comments]

  50. What determines the price of an ETF? (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    ETFs trade just like any normal stock. The price is determined by the bids and asks at any given moment. Except at the core of the shares, is not a company, but instead a fund that will invest into multiple companies and other securities. So my question is: Why are ETFs considered safer investments than individual stocks? My understanding is that ETFs do not invest your money, secure profits and distribute earnings to individual shareholders. Therefore, the only way to earn money on ETFs is via growth in the share prices of the ETF. If that is true, then the it is more or less irrelevant what companies a particular ETF might invest into because at the end of the day what will determine the share price more than anything else is market sentiment. Can someone help me understand what I’m missing here?   submitted by   /u/A_P666 [link]   [comments]
