Getting Started In Investing
Are you ready to open your pathway to financial independence?
Stock Market Retirement Investment Plan
For a successful retirement investment plan to work in the stock market, some 'reasonably sure' assumptions would have to be made:
A Safe Port For Mutual Funds But Not You!
Soft dollars, a form of legal kickback, is a sly way you can get ripped off by mutual fund managers. Full service brokers give these kickbacks to non-indexed mutual funds in the form of a "rebate" to purchase research, software, and even computer equipment.
A fickle stock market encourages good-humored mockery.
Invest To Make Money, Not To Get Rich
The technology boom of the '90s romanticized the "rags-to-riches" ideal that all of us dream about when investing. For those that invested $1000 in Dell at $5 during 1990, held through the seven splits, then sold in March 2000 at $59, the dream was a reality. That investment would have returned an amazing $1,132,800! Image making over $1 million for every thousand dollars invested. Beyond Dell, companies like EBay, Amazon.com, and many others made their investors very wealthy.

Coins of this type vary in value with the ebb and flow of the collector market and are not strictly tied to metal value. Also, these coins often go for much more over spot price than bullion coins.
Time is Money and We Are Running Out of Both!
One of the fundamental principles of finance is the concept that $1 today is more valuable than $1 a year from now.
Profitability And Stock Turn Rate
The inventory of the typical store represents the largest single element of its total assets. The sale of goods from this inventory is the merchant's chief source of operating profit. Thus, the way in which this merchandise investment is put to work is of utmost importance in achieving a profitable operation.
