Those Are All REAL Investments, Right?

The argument makes little sense and can be cut both ways. No one lost a lot of money this way, just a little bit. By the way, MSO is still around, but is hemorrhaging cash, just like Groupon. So, when the Groupon IPO came out, I saw the writing on the wall. What I was buying was a minority share in a company, whose only assets were basically intellectual property – much like Groupon and Facebook. I made the mistake of buying a stock I didn’t understand. Most people think the stock market crash in 1929 was the immediate cause of the Depression. The true believers never bothered to ask why someone would anonymously just tell them this, but instead went out and bought the stock, watched it go up, and then crash hard. But ask yourself this – in what way is it different from Groupon, Facebook, ZipCar, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, Green Mountain Coffee, or a whole host of other hyped companies that skyrocket in price and then crash to the ground? And the best way to avoid hyped stocks is to stop watching the financial channels, stop listening to the shouting guy, and stop being a Raging True Believer.

When the VIX goes up, stocks go down. The Chairman was forced to step down when it turned out that he was leveraging his shared on stock options. Come follow me as I implement my options trading system. January 2017, according to calculations by Reuters and Commodity Futures Trading Commission data. So in that case, the easiest and best decision I made is to just investing into Berkshire Hathaway back in 2011 when it was trading very close to just 1.0 times its book value. I say “technical” because there appears to be no way to value Bitcoin fundamentally. Why Green Mountain would shoot up in value by 25% is anyone’s guess. The first is Green Mountain Coffee, which shot up 25% for no apparent reason. If you confront me, I might say that licensing barriers can constitute a moat. You can invest in stocks, real estate, gold, silver, commodities, businesses, etc. But I want to state that there’s more to investing than meets the eye. It is often simply a matter of not being able to hire more resources as they cannot afford them. The more you contract a muscle group during a lifting, the more muscle mass you will develop!

A dealer salesman will say stupid things like, “If you pay cash for the car, you are losing the opportunity cost of investing that money!” – particularly when they are trying to lease you a car. In reality, almost every person who wants to own a car, for personal or for business purposes, takes a car loan or gets the car lease done for the same. It takes a while for the snowball to gather momentum and grow, but they can help speed up the process. I must have been reading your hub for this week’s inspiration topic while you were reading mine. Joke aside, as many of you have known, I know nuts about TA or any of the coloured line. And I know this because when I was younger, I foolishly bought Martha Stewart’s stock, Martha Stewart Omnimedia. Martha knew all about stock manipulation, as she was a former broker, who hyped Levitz Furniture stock, which bubbled and burst, and was the subject of an investigation and, well, Martha had to find a new job after that. Hyped stocks are never a good idea. Recently, two stocks have gotten a lot of mention in the press. Today you may have been able to claim Bush was somewhat pro-America, but the same cannot be said of Obama.

Market Cap may sound fantastic, but when you try to cash it in, it evaporates like ether. Most people think that emerging market real estate investing means you have to pay full price for a property in a rapidly appreciating market and carry massive negative cash flow. People who are new to the real estate industry have a tough time in understanding the basics of this field and because of lack of knowledge they end up losing their hard earned money. Read whether other people have something to say about their experiences with the company. The company has been around a long time (since 1986), has had two name changes, and really hasn’t accomplished much of anything. Sort of the same way the news waffled about Hitler at the time. Joining or starting an investment club is a great way to learn about investing in stock or real estate. Maybe a human interest story on the inside page of the Real Estate section, qualified with a “well, you never know what will happen” kind of thing. And yea, on page 2, there is a waffling piece where they quote some crank like me saying it is a lousy deal, which they qualify with a “well, you never know! Only time will tell!” kind of ending.
