    For example, what I mean is, let's say a company sells 10 stock. Now, doesn't that 10 stock represent the entire company? How can they in the future sell more stock?

Also, how do companies decide how much profit to keep for raw materials, labor, research etc for next financial year's products and how much profit to release to stock owners?

    Best answer: To be a trader you must first learn how to invest. You must know the products and the markets in which they trade and more importantly you must know the rules that govern those products and markets. You need to address four major policies and have very strong discipline to follow them

    1 - You need a written sound trading/investment plan with rules that will not only help you but more importantly protect you, mostly from yourself. Always use stops either to protect you on the down side or to lock in profits on the up side. Never trade on emotions, when emotions get involved walk away. Don’t try to out-smart the market, you’ll loose but if you always take what the market is willing to give you, you’ll be successful. Other words, you don’t trade against the trend since the market is always right. And NEVER trade on emotions, once you let emotions in your trades you will loose

    2 - A written money management program is essential. Remember never invest 100% of your capital into any one security and never have 100% of your capital invested. Never go into a trade without knowing when and where you are going to get out of it. Never let a loss on a trade get greater than 8%-10%, always take you loss and walk away - don't loose more than you need to and don't be afraid to take the loss. Remember you never can get hurt taking a profit. Never average down, but you can average up.

    3 - You must have sufficient trading/investment capital. Use your own money, there’s no need to go into debt so that you can trade and/or invest. Margin can be used but only with restraints, never let the account wall below 45% equity. Unless you fully understand margins you should not use it.

    4 – A full and complete understanding of the rules & regulations of the industry. If your going to play in the game be sure you know the rules of the game and always follow them.

    Before any one jumps in and tries to buy stock, they must first decide if they are going to be a trader or an investor. (A trader is very short term holder of a stock – 1 minute to 3 months, an investor is a 6 months and beyond holder). Decide on how much capital you have available for investing/trading and how much of that are in going to spend. (You should never spend 10% of you investing/trading capital on a particular stock. Decide what industry in want. Look for good trades/investments in that industry and move with caution.

    If you want to trade, NEVER NEVER, go into a trade without knowing where (or when) you are getting out of it. If you’re an investor, look for good company sound fundamental.

    Here’s a list of books you should consider, at least read half of them
    Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered, by Gallea
    How to Trade in Stocks, Jesse Livermore
    Millionaire Traders, Lein & Schlosberg
    One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch
    Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, Edwin Lefevre
    The Disciplined Trader, Mark Douglas
    Trader Vic-Methods of a Wall Street Master, Victor Sperandeo

  • The Rothschild family is worth $700 trillion. How do we get rid of this evil clan and give it to people who need the money?

    Best answer: You're going to need a very very very well-armed army. I believe you can buy all the armaments you need from The Rothschild's, who are also arming up the other side.

    Best answer: I too want to thank you for your service.

    Without having more information about your personal information, such as age, current income and other data such as risk tolerance, martial status, demographics, income & expenses, and your current liabilities it would be very inappropriate for me or any other responsible person to provide specific investment information in this type of media.

    Also it would not be appropriate for any professional to provide any specific investing advice based on the information provided. And it would not be prudent for you to accept any specific investment advice from unknown individuals here at YA or a similar media.

    There are many people just like you that are, or were looking to invest and those that did bought Mutual Funds and/or Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). One purpose of mutual funds is to help investors like you, who are either just entering the investment world or who have no investing experience. Once you feel you at least have an understanding of investments you should look into ETFs which are similar to mutual funds but are traded on the exchanges.

    Mutual Fund companies as well as ETFs and Master Limited Partnerships have an entire array of products many will fit your needs. Read about the various products and in doing so you will be getting investment ideas and at the same time educating yourself about investing.

    You could also contact the funds companies for more information. I have found that Vanguard (http://www.vanguard.com/) & Fidelity Investments (https://www.fidelity.com/)
    can meet your needs for mutual funds. The service and information they provide is all free and you will find it helpful. You can also read about Master Limited Partnerships at “the Dividend Detective” http://www.dividenddetective.com/
    Since you are in the service, you could contact USAA Investments, they specialize in helping with the military.

    Regardless of what you decide, do not ever let anyone tell you not to invest, especially those that do not invest themselves.

    Good luck on your journey, stay safe and may God Bless
