The start of the year brings new companies into focus for investors, particularly those that had a poor showing in the prior year. There are a few different ways to classify these opportunities, but most are based on being a “dog” of some sort.Originally, the strategy was to buy the five highest-yielding companies in the Dow Index—hence the name Dogs of the Dow. But there are variations, like using 10 names, or using the S&P 500 index, or sorting by other means.One of those means should include companies that had operational struggles in the prior year, but could see their shares soar as those troubles go away.When we add in that factor, Boeing (BA) looks like a great buy for 2020.The company’s problems are well-known, and seemingly aren’t going away. But the company is part of a global oligopoly for airline production, and that gives it an attractive operating structure due to minimal competition.We also know that the 737 Max problems are solvable, even if they aren’t solved yet.And we know that, despite the drop in revenues and earnings in the past year, a recovery is likely as soon as the fear dissipates.The only question is whether Boeing can survive that long. Many companies don’t have the financial firepower to deal with a major crisis without having to deal with some stark cuts.Thanks to Boeing’s low net debt, however, the company isn’t so leveraged that today’s problem creates an existential crisis. That makes Boeing a buy up to $350 per share—with the possibility to hit $450 or $500 as the 737 Max issues get solved.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running...Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/ 
With the end of the year, there are all sorts of predictions about the next. But more important than predictions are specific investment ideas.There are a few ways to take advantage of the changing calendar and find profitable investments. By focusing on a few key areas and concepts, traders can find specific investments that play to these opportunities. First, investors can look to buy stocks that have been out of favor with the market. By doing so, investors are taking advantage of the market’s propensity to revert to the mean, where underperforming assets catch up with the rest of the market.One obvious area for that is in the technology space. Many of these names are still off their all-time highs of a few years back, and have room to push the market higher even as some of 2019’s top winners become laggards.Another area is in companies that had some specific issues with the operations that held back shares in the past year. There are always some solid companies dealing with some short-term events likely to keep their share price out of favor with the market. But when those fears dissipate, investors will get huge returns as the fear subsides.Finally, there are areas where instability is brewing. That’s usually the most obvious in the commodity market, where supply and demand imbalances can set up for some sizeable profits in a short amount of time. By taking advantage of these areas, investors can ensure they make a profit, no matter what the overall market is doing.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running...Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
One of the best-performing stocks of the 2010’s was Netflix. And, with 2019’sbig push for new streaming services, the competition is heating up.The most interesting competitor to emerge this year was The Walt Disney Company (DIS), with its Disney+ streaming service launch.Taking advantage of its massive library of content spanning nearly a century,the company could have gotten away with pricing its service at a premium. But instead, Disney went with one of the most accessible prices on the market, with a $6.99 monthly fee, well below that of other competitors with fewer offerings.And the launch has hit the ground running, with millions of sign-ups, as well as a handful of hiccups on the first day of launch. But the company got its tech issues resolved, and it’s also got a solid hit with one of its original programs, The Mandolorian, a show that takes place in the Star Wars universe. While that’s a great development, what does it mean for shares? After all, the announcement of the new service early in 2019 sent shares soaring. And the lack of any issues or challenges to the service right away also sent shares roaring even higher to close out the year.That’s a potential sign that shares may have peaked. The billions of dollars incash flow from monthly subscriptions will help the bottom line. But the mediagiant also just had a great year at the box office, smashing records. It won’t be able to have that kind of lineup anytime in the next few years.Given that the Disney+ news this year has sent shares to 23 times earnings, it’s possible that the company may underperform for the next few years—and investors would be better to wait for a sizeable pullback before looking to invest.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running...Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/ 
Decades of investment data can reveal a lot of interesting patterns. A fun seasonal one right now is that of the Santa Claus Rally. Simply put, it’s the propensity for stocks to rally into the end of the year.Originally, this trend was noticed in the last week of December and into the first few trading days of the next year. However, looking at the data, the last six weeks or so of the year tends to be good for the market on average.Investors can expect an average move of 1.5 to 2 percent higher in the market. That’s enough of an historical trend to get investors excited.Of course, there are a lot of other factors at play. At the end of the year, investors will book losses for tax purposes. As investors only do that on companies that have performed poorly, however, it simply means that those companies are likely to skip on the rally. But in a great year like this year, companies that have been doing well are likely to keep doing well. While some investors may shy away, many fund managers will want to load their portfolios with top-performing names, so that they can show their clients that they were in that top performing stock—even if they actually missed out on the rally!Looking at the details, the Santa Claus Rally has a few caveats to it. The most important one, of course, we’re just talking about the average year. 2018 was a below average year, as the markets were tanking into Christmas day. While they recovered a bit in the last week of the year, it still bucked the trend. Investors looking for this type of seasonal rally need to look at how stocks have been performing in the autumn. This year, with the market heading up and near all-time highs, the rally is real. There’s still some time to play it this year, but starting next year, if the market is trending up the week of Thanksgiving, consider buying some call options on the overall market to follow the trade for leveraged returns.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running... Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
Tesla Motors Continues to Innovate, But Will Shareholders Benefit?There’s no room in life for complacency. Capitalism has been described as a form of “creative destruction,” whereby new products and services lower costs and shift demand to new products.In the past few years, Tesla Motors has shaken up the automotive industry. With a push for an all-electric car at a time when many of the major manufacturers were simply considering hybrid vehicles, Tesla’s existence has forced the industry to create all-electric vehicles of their own.While the company has launched a number of cars, it’s now getting into the trucking space, thanks to the Cybertruck. With a sleek, aerodynamic design and steel look, it brings back memories of the DeLorean car. The design may not be the most attractive, but for a vehicle that can haul a lot of weight with a 250 mile range, and at a price point just under $40,000, it could be a serious contender for the space. That’s just the base model. Two and three-engine versions of the truck are available at higher prices.Compared to the Ford F150 truck, which retails for about $10,000 cheaper, and gets a similar range on a tank of gas, the Cybertruck won’t win on price, but for the features it offers, it is still a serious contender.With Tesla motors coming off a great year of improved production on its cars, the Cybertruck can add an exciting new offering once it launches in late 2020. While that’s some time off, shares have already moved higher as the company has moved past the news events in 2018 that sent shares tanking. We see further upside ahead, but also see the potential to buy shares on one of their inevitable pullbacks as the best way to profit. Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
Markets often top out for a while—or go through a multi-month correction—when greed gets rampant. There are a lot of ways to look at this phenomenon. It can happen when everyday folks are suddenly interested in the stock market.But a more important one comes from corporations themselves. Specifically, one warning of a market top occurs when there’s a record-setting buyout offer from one company to buy another.When big companies merge, it takes big bucks to make it happen. And the acquiring company typically uses a lot of debt to make it happen. These big deals sound great in a roaring economy, when everything goes just right.But in the real world, things don’t always go right. Taking two big companies, with their differing values and cultures, to work together will often take more time, energy, and cost more than on the clean spreadsheets prepared by analysts to justify a deal.That’s when two companies merge. When one company is bought out by another as an investment, the danger is more acute. In that case, a buyout firm is typically based in the finance space, and may not have the operating expertise to understand how to best handle the company they’re acquiring.That’s why the latest record-setting buyout offer from buyout firm KKR to buy Walgreens Boots Alliance is a troubling sign of a market top. It doesn’t mean a big crash in the market is going to happen anytime soon. But if history is any guide, it is a sign that this market has gotten ahead of itself and may be in for some poor performance going into 2020.We’ve seen this trend before with the AOL-Time Warner merger in 2000, and even back in the 1980’s with the RJR/Nabisco merger. These record-setting buyouts saw some short-term market peaks. In the AOL-Time Warner deal, the combination of combining a tech company with a traditional media company was an early warning sign of the high valuations being placed on tech. The RJR/Nabisco Merger saw a food and tobacco conglomerate that had poor returns and profit margins due to high debt levels… leading to an eventual split of the two companies. Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
Typically, celebrities and investing seem like two entirely different subjects. That hasn’t always been true. There’s actually been a rich history of celebrities getting involved with publicly-traded companies as investors, active partners, and even board members.To use one historic example, actress Grace Kelly once served on the board of 20th Century Fox. Today, a myriad of celebrities can be seen as getting involved with a company. That may include a celebrity investment, like that of Leonardo DiCaprio and Orlando Bloom in digital bank Aspiration Bank.Or it could include a far more active investment and board seat like Oprah with Weight Watchers or Shaquille O’Neal with Papa John’s Pizza. The fact of the matter is, there’s a blend between celebrities and companies, and there always will be. Celebrities are high-earners, and astute ones will make investments elsewhere. That’s why both Shaq and Michael Jordan have made far more money from their investments than from playing baseball. Knowing how to balance time and money can be a key factor in a company’s success. That said, there are a few differences. Like any enterprise, a business is a risky endeavor with no guarantee of success. Even with a celebrity bringing their skills to the table, a company could still falter. Weight Watchers had a difficult time with Oprah due to her demanding schedule. And a passive investment by a celebrity in a firm doesn’t give investors much of an indicator of success at all—Aspiration Bank is struggling and in need of more capital right now.Those caveats aside, when celebrities take a big stake in a company, and commit to being a part of it, there’s a good reason to expect some big success ahead. That’s why it’s interesting to see Shaq’s involvement with Papa John’s, and more recently Drake’s involvement with pot stock Canopy Growth.  Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  /
There are many ways to invest—and many potential ways to beat the market.But one way, more than any other, will result in different returns than the market. Done right, it means beating the pants off of the index. Done wrong, it means underperforming.This secret has to do with portfolio allocation.While most investment professionals discuss the importance of diversification, they tend to do so to stress an investment that could go wrong. Having no more than 10 percent of your wealth in one position means never having to lose more than 10 percent if it goes to zero.So far, so good. But if you’re focusing on investments with a great future, there may be times when having a larger allocation to a specific company or sector could get you a better return.That’s the secret behind the wealth creation of Warren Buffett. A look just at the current stock positions in the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio shows that over 25 percent of the portfolio is in a single company—Apple. But on a sector basis, Buffett’s portfolio has over 35 percent invested in financials like big banks and credit card issuers. And that’s not including wholly-owned companies in the insurance space.That large single stock position and sector position alone is over half of the portfolio of the greatest investor in history. That’s a level of concentration that many smaller investors may never reach—or if they do concentrate, it may be on smaller companies with higher volatility more likely to falter and lead to a forced sale at the worst possible time.But the secret is right there, hiding in plain sight. For better market returns, focus your portfolio on areas with the best prospective future returns—especially where your specialized knowledge may come in handy as well. Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
We all come into some extra money from time to time. Whether it’s from a birthday card from a relative, some cash found in the pocket of an old jacket, or even just literally found on the street, that extra money can be put to good use.In today’s age, it’s easy to even take that money and invest it. While most say you need thousands to start investing, even with as little as $50 you can start to get yourself on a financial track to wealth.Of course, even $50 that grows quickly will still only be worth a few hundred dollars after a few decades. But what if you could take that small sum and make a regular investment contribution to an index fund? $50 a month, for five years straight, or 60 months, will mean a total investment of $3,000. After just five years, the power of investing will already create a total portfolio over $3,700 assuming an 8 percent return.Here’s the fun part: Say you keep that money invested for another 15 years with ZERO additional contributions. Getting that 8 percent average annual return will grow your balance to over $11,800.At 25 years, it’s over $25,400. Not bad for a total contribution of $3,000 spread over five years.Of course, that’s just one way to invest an extra $50. That kind of extra money could be put into more aggressive investments than just an index fund, especially if you’re already contributing to one. A mere $50 may not sound like much, but when used to buy an option contract trading at $0.50, an investor can potentially double or triple their money.Of course, an option trade can also get completely wiped out, but when you have money that’s been “found” in the first place, the feeling of a loss is a lot lower than a loss coming from previously committed money in an investment account.Those are just two ways to deal with found money. That’s the power—and importance—of growing your wealth by adding small sums at a time. And it goes to show that the extra cash in your pocket may be more valuable than you think. Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
What Warren Buffett’s Investment Strategy Tells Us About Today’s ValuesOnly a few investors have come close to Warren Buffett’s track record. Over the decades, he’s beaten the market handily. That success all comes down to one factor: Value.Whenever you buy shares of a company, if you don’t have an idea of what the company is worth, and will be worth in the future, it’s impossible to know if you’re buying at a great price or not.In Buffett’s early investment years, the 1950’s, this could be taken to the extreme. Back then, stocks were still seen as a terrible place to invest following the Great Depression. As a result, values in general were a lot lower—and many companies could even trade for prolonged periods of time for less than the value of cash on the books! Under that kind of market sentiment, value investing is obvious. You could take control of a company, shut it down, and end up with more per share than when you started.As the markets started regaining popularity, Buffett’s focus on value changed yet again, this time towards insurance companies, which have built-in capital advantages, as well as by focusing on companies with strong brands. While brands are a bit more intangible on a company’s balance sheet, they can usually charge more for their products than a generic peer.Today, Buffett has been making a big mark in Apple—a company with a strong brand, but also one that has a lot more intangible assets as well. And it’s clear that such a company in the 21st century can still be a value play, thanks to the fact that it has also built itself a consumer culture around it. That kind of trend may become more important as companies become more intangible and hard assets like factories are no longer as important to building a long-term profit powerhouse. Not sure the best way to get started?

As tempting as it is to just dive into trading, it’s important to know a few things first. Knowing these “rules of the game” ensure you’re going in with sufficient knowledge to profit more often than you lose on a trade.With just three simple numbers, however, you can get most of the knowledge you need to know if a trade is worth making or not.If you’re trading on a fundamental basis, for instance, you should look at a company’s PE ratio. That’s a simple calculation of showing a company’s current price, divided by its last 12 months of earnings. While PE ratios can vary across companies and industries, it can give a quick “gut check” to determine if there’s a value worth buying or not. You can also compare the PE ratio to the stock market as a whole.That’s a valuation-based trade. Traders looking for faster profits or to make more leveraged options trades have other numbers that can give them a better idea of where a stock is heading in the short-term. A company’s relative strength index, or RSI, is a great tool there. The RSI can tell a trader if a stock is going up or down, and whether other traders are continuing to buy or not. With an RSI, you can also get a quick gauge as to whether a company is overbought or oversold—making for a quick indicator of when to get out of a winning trade before it becomes a loser.Finally, swing traders can find opportunities looking at companies making new 52-week highs or lows. Value investors can focus on the lows, and momentum investors can make trades on companies making new highs on the logic that the trend will continue.Combining these numbers, as well as some of the more complex numbers the market throws your way.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running... Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
While most investors think of the potential returns possible, they do so at the danger of overlooking the flip side to the equation: Risk. All investments have risks. It may be the risk of a bond losing value over time due to inflation. It may be the risk of owning a company that goes bankrupt. Risks can vary, and knowing how to manage those risks is critical.While financial analysts think they can plug some numbers into Excel and know a company’s expected risk—usually by referring to an asset’s volatility, or “beta” in Wall Street lingo, risk is a more nebulous concept than what can be captured by numbers alone. An investment that has low volatility only has that when looking at past data. Many companies with slow movements during a bull market may get swept up in the fear of a bear market—as was the case with slow-moving companies in bland, boring businesses in 2007 and 2008. There’s a reason why an investment prospectus will often state (in the smallest font possible) that past returns are no expectation of future returns—yet many investors think they are.Most investors starting out have a bigger risk, however. They tend to misread position sizes in their portfolio. While buying what’s called a “round lot” of 100 shares may make some sense, with many higher-priced shares of companies, it may end up creating a lopsided portfolio that’s a poor fit for the market’s natural gyrations. Worse, it may mean putting more money into a poorer-performing position while smaller portfolio holdings have better percentage returns.Risk management is at the core of investing. There are many ways to look at it, but understanding how a position may perform during an extreme event, no matter how unlikely it seems, and keeping portfolio positions reasonable, can do much to take some of the biggest investment risks off the table.

The stock market can do a lot of things efficiently. It can digest news about a company’s performance in seconds, for instance. But it also picks up on the fear or greed of traders. If traders think a company is going bankrupt, they won’t wait to sell, and shares may end up going bankrupt as a result of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Likewise, a lot of high-tech companies that went public in 2019 fizzled after their IPO as more investors were able to weigh in on their high valuation relative to the money (if any) that these companies were likely to make. While the market throws out a lot of data about the economy and companies in particular, no number can truly give an idea as to whether the market is pricing in fear—sending prices generally higher than they should be—or greed, where prices are lower than they should be. That’s where judgement comes in, and a willingness to think about the market logically.Investors who can ignore their own emotions, and even act against them, buying during periods of fear when others don’t want to buy, and selling when everyone looks at the recent rally as just a starting point for future profits, will do better over time by taking advantage of that one trend.Traders who follow this strategy are more likely to buy bargains, giving them an edge and margin of safety on their trades. These traders are also likely to sell into the frenzy, getting out with a great profit and leaving a little bit of upside left for traders right before the top of a trade. It’s a far cry from many traders who buy something that’s going up simply because it’s going up—or traders who buy more of something going down in the hopes that it will recover soon.Tweet this Video:https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=...Share this Video:https://www.facebook.com/dialog/share...Watch More Videos:How to Make Passive Income with Stockshttps://youtu.be/aFOPmqDLT-IThe Three Most Important Steps for Trading Success (You Won’t Get Anywhere Else)https://youtu.be/hGGO72rg_IENot sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running...Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Dividend Investing Mini-Course:  https://m.me/TradingTipsDotCom?ref=fr...10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-...7 High Yield Dividend Stocks: 
How Stocks Are the Best Game in Town For IncomeWhen most people think of the stock market, they think of big price swings that can make—or lose—a fortune quickly.While that’s certainly a component to it, smart investors know that price moves higher, or capital gains, are just part of the investment equation.In fact, capital gains are only about half the market’s performance in your portfolio over time.The other half? Income.The stock market is a place to buy and sell fractions of businesses. Some are great, some aren’t. But the successful ones usually like to ensure that their owners, the shareholders, receive some of the profits along the way.That usually comes in the form of a cash payment called a dividend. Most companies that pay them do so quarterly, although some do so as little as annually, but some do so as often as monthly. There’s a wide variety. Best of all, studies have shown that, over the course of an investment lifetime, dividend income from your holdings, reinvested into your portfolio, can generate as much as half of your portfolio’s total. And, of course, once you get into retirement and need a steady stream of income, that cash can be diverted away from reinvesting and into your pocket. Dividend-paying stocks tend to be steadier and less volatile than smaller, faster-growing companies... but they’re also likely to stick around, reducing the risk of a big loss. But combine all those factors together when thinking about a lifetime of investing, and it’s clear that a focus on dividend-paying companies alone in your portfolio will lead to better overall investment results.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running... Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports: Dividend Investing Mini-Course:  https://m.me/TradingTipsDotCom?ref=fr...10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-... 7 High Yield Dividend Stocks: https://www.tradingtips.com/7-high-yi...

What Investment Beginners Really Need to Know About InvestingThere’s a lot of excitement around investing—and rightly so. It’s possible to build a fortune. But it’s also possible to lose your shirt. If you’re just getting started—or if you’ve tried to start in the past and can’t seem to get any momentum going—investing can seem intimidating at first.There’s a lot that goes into it besides your money, after all. Investing also carries with it all the hopes and dreams, and also the fears that you may have.That’s why one of the most important things to do when starting to invest is to actually start. Put some money to work in a company you like, even if you only have a few hundred dollars. Once you’ve made that commitment, ratherthan waiting to build up a cash balance of some arbitrary amount like $1,000, you’re in the game.Once that happens, you’re able to see for yourself what works and what doesn’t work in investing in a way that no article or video can show you with your money truly at work. And, by starting small, you’ll learn from your mistakes with smaller amounts of money at risk. Investors who start by putting a large amount of their net worth into one stock are taking on a huge risk, but by starting small, the invariable losses in investing will show you what went wrong with your investment ideas without permanently holding you back.Finally, many small investors don’t use leverage correctly. While riskier, thereare ways to use leverage to improve your portfolio returns without increasingthe amount of risk involved. Instead of buying 100 shares, for instance, you could buy one call option. Sure, maybe for the same money as 100 shares, you could afford 10 call options, but knowing when to substitute options for shares—rather than putting as much as possible into a leveraged trade—can make a huge difference to your investment success.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running... Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports: Dividend Investing Mini-Course:  https://m.me/TradingTipsDotCom?ref=fr...10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-... 7 High Yield Dividend Stocks: https://www.tradingtips.com/7-high-yi...

Trading isn’t for everyone. Most active investors fail to beat the market’s average return. That’s because they make a lot of mistakes. While that’s an inevitable part of investing, failing to learn from those mistakes and build on successes can end up costing traders even more.One of the most important things a trader can do is think about risk. After all,every investment has a tradeoff between a risk and a reward, and most folks start by seeing the big dollar signs that represent a fat reward. But when you’re just thinking about the potential upside, you may be blindedto the dangers that lie in a potential investment. Avoiding as many losing investments as possible is a great way to ensure your long-term success in the trading world.Second, most investors don’t know how to set appropriate limits. They may load up their portfolio heavily with incredibly risky companies, without balancing out smaller trades. Or they may have just two or three stocks in their portfolio when they should be trading with more on a regular basis to ensure any single position doesn’t blow up the portfolio.Finally, most investors fail because they get impatient. The market moves onits own time, and if you’re expecting to buy on Monday and profit by Friday, you’ll often be disappointed. But if you think a move is coming in a stock, you want to give yourself enough time for that move to play out. That’s the way astute investors play the market to win, time and time again.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running... Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns:  https://www.tradingtips.com/book-of-chart-patterns/The Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/  
Study after study on the market indicates that investors in smaller companies often get a return premium over time. There’s some common-sense explanation behind that superior return. Bigger, more established companies may get all the attention in the market, and investors may have already paid up to own a big, established, blue-chip name. But smaller companies that could become the next great blue-chip firm still remain off-the-radar, and consequently far cheaper than they have any right to be.But there’s another way smaller investors tend to profit in excess of investors in larger companies. Through a process called industry consolidation, over time the number of companies that are needed to serve an industry will naturally shrink. Unprofitable companies will go by the wayside, and small profitable companies will be bought out at a premium to bigger companies looking to grow quickly.This process plays out with varying speeds in various industries. Today, there are only three major automakers in the United States, and a few small players. But there used to be hundreds of automotive companies when the industry was starting out and growing at a rapid pace. The trend is playing out well in the financial space. 35 years ago, there were nearly 14,000 different bank companies. Today, there are around 4,000. In the next 35 years, if this rate of consolidation holds, there will be a few hundred. Investors looking for smaller banks can find better valuations than some of the larger, more established players. And they can find companies that are looking to grow by acquiring competitors. It’s a win-win situation, if you know what metrics to look for.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running...Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/ 
If you just follow the stock market, you may have missed the biggest financial news in years. That news is the rise of negative interest rates—or bonds that pay investors less in total than what it costs them to invest. In the past, you may have bought a bond with a par value of $100 for, well, $100. And after receiving interest, you’d get back your $100 value, ensuring a total positive return. Negative yields occur when bond prices are so high that, even after all interest payments are made, you don’t get back $100 for every $100 you put in.The rise of these negative-yielding bonds is underway, and could spread to other places besides some government debt markets they’re in now. If that’s the case, then the bond market could give investors some great returns over the next few years as bonds priced at $100 and required to pay back $100 may go to a price of $110 or higher!Of course, negative yielding bonds go against everything we know about finance and capital formation. It’s uncharted territory, and when bond yields are negative, investments with no yield, like precious metals, start to look attractive. That may be part of the reason for gold’s strong performance so far this year.Finally, in a negative-yield world, any stock that pays a dividend can produce a positive yield and return over time. This push for lower bond yields may entice investors away from bonds and into the stock market—and give stocks the mother of all rallies!Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running... Step #1 - Get These FREE Reports:Big Book Of Chart Patterns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/ 
Hurricane season is in full swing this time of year, and once again the east coast is in the crosshairs. It’s something that’s happened before, and will happen again. While the unpredictable weather can sometimes cause billions of dollars in damages in a few short days, astute traders can take advantage of these developments to make an extra profit from it as well—as long as they’ve planned ahead carefully and are prepared.For instance, it’s easy to see long lines at gas stations and grocery stores ahead of storms. And companies that sell electric generators, storm shutters, and other supplies tend to likewise see their shares advance more than the general stock market ahead of a big storm. And companies with risk exposure to an affected area, like a home insurance company, will see its shares drop. How far that happens depends on the likely impact and the value of all the properties in the area. But markets tend to price it in quickly. Investors looking for a short trade during hurricane season should buy put options on certain insurers as soon as it looks like a storm may hit—chances are it will drop substantially. However, shares will rally somewhat after a storm when the damage assessment is done.Adding some of these trades to your portfolio during a storm will give you some small, but predictable gains. And with the use of the options market, you can leverage those gains for the best results. Understanding what moves—and when—during a pending disaster can give you an investment edge and a trading strategy that comes up during the summer months.Not sure the best way to get started?  Follow these simple steps to hit the ground running...Big Book Of Chart Patterns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/big-book-of-chart-patternsThe Ultimate Stock Trading Toolbox: https://www.tradingtips.com/ultimate-toolbox/  10 Great Stocks Under $10: https://www.tradingtips.com/10-great-stocks-to-buy-under-10/7 Cheap & Good Stocks: https://reports.tradingtips.com/7-cheap-stocks  Step #2 - Join Our Premium Advisories:The Next Superstock: https://www.tradingtips.com/3-disruptorsTriple Digit Returns: https://reports.tradingtips.com/pot-mania/Step #3 - Connect With The Community:Trading Tips Official Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tradingtipsdotcom/ 
Hindsight is 2020. While it’s easy to look back on a great trade that you passed up, investors make a much more common mistake.They tend to use recent trends and extrapolate them out forever. The problem with that strategy is that investment looks like the best opportunity after it’s already had a great run. Early investors already made their money. And no company can always be on the growth path. There will be times to change course and even restructure, sell, or close a business.Investing is about looking forward. While looking at recent financial data can give some clues about likely near-term performance, it doesn’t tell you anything about how the market will value a company in the future.For instance, in the 1990’s, tobacco stocks were facing billions of dollars in litigation over the health problems caused by cigarettes. After agreeing to one of the largest fines in history, the sector was able to retrench and head higher. For starters, the government outlawed advertising by the industry—saving the big tobacco companies billions of dollars that could go back to shareholders. And secondly, the government taxed cigarettes just high enough to collect revenues while being just low enough to discourage folks from quitting. But in the early 1990’s, that outcome was far from certain, and investors using a rear-view mirror approach wouldn’t have found the big opportunity there.Many of today’s attractive companies will go out of favor. Or we’ll learn that they weren’t all they were cracked up to be in terms of sales or profits. Likewise, many companies out of favor today may post surprisingly good returns in the future now that current expectations are so low.Not sure the best way to get started?
