Perry Hall Baptist Church. From Psalm You are now made for eternity, so avoid life-suckers. What is a life sucker? Well, it's the thing that keeps us from living an abundant life in Christ.
It usually pretends to offer life but in reality over time it replaces your life in Christ with itself. My bottom line is that many people cannot do what it takes to accumulate and protect sufficient wealth on their own.
They need guidance especially when the rules change. You are very right in that upgrading your human capital is the best investment that someone can make.
Many people are stuck in their personal comfort zones. Comment by Kevin - January 6, at am. Comment by J. There is a floor to how much you can lose on a CD.
With the stock market, you can lose everything and the comission. The stock market is not insured in the same way. Comment by nate - January 5, at pm. I think you should put your money where your mouth is and prove it to everyone. Maybe you should invest some money in a mutual fund, an etf, a CD, and an interest bearing checking account for a 1-month, 3-month, 6-month, 1 year, 2 year, and 5 year returns and see which one does the best.
Also as to your comment about losing some of the benefit when you have to withdraw money from your account due to financial hardships, the same theory holds true when you have to withdraw money from a CD, in that instance you have to withdraw the whole amount, pay a penalty and then start your time period over.

It seems to me that is part of the problem that people have. They lose their money early on. Is it perceived as a hopeless train wreck by the people who would normally be in the market researching carefully? Has George, my CPA, cashed out his portfolio?

You would think that the vast majority of the trades are done every day by institutional investors, and that they would have finance or economics or MBA background, not to mention CFA, but not sure.

He broke a stock price down to the simple definition of Present value of future cash flows. When you think about it, it makes total sense. Try looking at stock prices based on the present value of their next 10 years estimated future cash flows and you will see that many are dead on.
However, you will also find some good stocks to short, and some good ones to go long on. Granted, you are looking out 10 years, so many have to be held longterm. The key is to know what yours is, and stay within it. But be sure to educate yourself on all options before jumping head first into something. Comment by Matt Baehr - January 5, at pm. If anyone wants the file, I can e-mail to them. Taking an idea and turning it into a billion dollars- or in this case, the suckers at Yahoo, who were suckered enough to pay such a high price for your company.
I was just wondering if you ever read your comments from your blog. Comment by Jay - January 5, at am. Bottom line, there are lot of idiots in the world and consequently some of them will end up running companies.
There will also be others who will set up companies to take advantage of idiots. On the other hand there are some good honest people in the world, and some of them may have good ideas and set up companies. He is talking about investing in the right comapny run by the right people.
