Never let anyone manage your money for youHadn’t heard of them, website was painfully slow for me, and took me to a signup very quickly. From the pricing, looks like they are about the same as the big names if you are looking to simply invest money and let someone else manage it for you.
I would stay outta oil and gas...I looked into some REIT. Those are mostly a "takes money to make money" type thing.
Look for high dividend yield stocks. 7% is good.
Except OXY. Occidental Petroleum. That company is nuts since they acquired Anadarko, and nobody knows whats going to happen.
Motley fool has decent articles on high dividend stocks, but keep in mind they never tell you about the ones they've lost money on.
We put some money into Tradeking years back, then forgot about it for a few years. Wasn't much. 100 bucks i think.I tried it years ago,I didn`t do too good untill my acountant said I had a good tax write off on my losses
one stock I liked was a energy monthly dividend and I made a few bucks on it every month
then one day they disapperared and I found out they sold out
no more monthly divedends.....I tried a few banks,energy stuff,ritchie bros,which wasn`t too for bad quarterly divedends....I wasn`t much for a long term investment then
When I first came to Walmart the price was 66.xx.today Zoom is 411.83
dec 3rd 2019 the price was 66.05
wish I would have put some cash in this stock a year ago
Yep it really makes you think about getting out while the getting is good.When I first came to Walmart the price was 66.xx.
Four years later its at 150-ish.
Div yield is only about 1.5% or so, but I imagine the guys that have been working here and buying stocks for years and years a r e pretty happy with that going into retirement.
