Long term, short term?

 

I try to keep it simple.  Set up an account and don't be a "day trader".  Buy good stuff, and let it sit.

 

That said, I think that the market is over bought right now, and I am not investing in anything other than rock solid stocks.

A friend of mine who has made some money in the market told me to always invest in companies and that make products you like.

I haven't had the chance to invest personally yet, still in college ATM.

Pretty much the only thing I've invested in is my kids, my house and my 401K, and in that order. Not much advice here... I probably need some myself.

I would say that in general... unless you're in that business yourself, get some help.

Your key now is getting a diversified portfolio. Big cap, small cap, international, some bond, real estate, precious metals, commodities, dividend stocks. The only work you have to do is investigate the funds you want (your online broker should make this easy) and not putting too much in one bucket.

 

There are tons of books on building a diversified portfolio and they all pretty much say the same thing.

 

This is easy to do on your own and you can't really screw anything up too badly.

 

I think where you want to get a guy is for the niche markets. My uncle for example invests primarily is small regional banks. Once I am happy with my portfolio I will give him some money to invest because he has me beat for sure on knowlege of that industry.

 

If you play individual stocks keep it simple and read a lot. 

 

I have invested in NLY and Oil over the past two years as far as individual stocks and that is plenty.

My father is a broker, but i hardly pay attention to him when he talks about it. Last time i did a couple months ago he just said he had people buy stock in utilities because they were the safest. He also said Garmin is a good company he had people invest in.  You need to feel comfortable with your broker though, some people will just put you in stuff that makes them more money, but isn't necessarily the best for you. But i hardly know anything about these things so...

My biggest issue, as it was a limiting factor in the past but less so now, is the amount I have to throw into it every month. I have State pension plan going, but I hope to be leaving that in the next 2 years. So I figure if I can start something small now I will have a base to add to.

 

Does that make sense ?

Besides what goes to my 401k, my main other investments are Cam Newton cards. Please Cam, be the best QB ever.

Open a Krispy Kreme on Eastwood near Cardinal, in that abandoned Kwik-E-Mart by the kayak place. You'll make millions. Tourists and drunk college kids.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
