Both my wife and I did very well the past 8 years.
If you own stocks or make great money you should not be panelize from doing great or pay taxes
for folks who just want walfare and not even try to get a job!

What do you think?

John answers:

What do I think?
Thanks for asking.
I think that just because you make money, you should not be penalized (and NOT “panelize”) outside of paying a fair tax.

As for folks on welfare, there are so many reasons why some people are not making the kind of money you claim to make.
But if you were a faith-based person, you’d recall that God asked us to set aside a percentage for those less fortunate than us.

I don’t have a problem with a portion of my tax going to help my fellow Americans…although I support our government in going after and penalizing welfare cheats.

But there are plenty of cheaters in the business world as well.
And many of those people are rich and Republican (as well as Democrat).

And that is what I think (and know)!

James asks…

which percentage of stock traders or investers during the years of 1995-2008 really made any significant money?

also, which years saw most people who invested in stocks making decent money in return? and how this increased and then turned back again and why? how comparable to what happened during the 1930’s and the Great Depression ? (is this really the last time that the stock market saw the type of mass interest like it had in the 1920’s?

how compared to the 1980’s? and why, when, and how much (percentage wise) did most people lose? and which percentage of those were just people investing over their computer? (is this really what allowed this type of mass interest in the stock market btw?)

when will return this interest again and how in comparison? which years saw the most in the past 20 years? and how this changed again and when?

thanks fo ryour answers!

ALSO, HOW INVESTING BY AVERAGE UPPER CLASS PEOPLE CAUGHT ON IN COUNTRIES LIKE THE UK OR EUROPE? HOW IN COMPARISON TO THE USA AND WHY THIS WAS?

John answers:

I don’t have an exact answer to your first question. However, let’s assume you bought the FTSE 100 around January 1, 1995 and sold around December 31, 2008. From the link below, the FTSE was about 3,000 at the beginning of 1995 and about 4,500 at the end of 2008, for a yearly return of about 3%. However, you then have to add in a roughly 3% dividend return, for an overall return of ~6% a year. Not great, but not too bad either.

If you had bought in 1985 and sold in 2010, you would have done better. Stocks are for long term investing. You start buying at age 18, and sell when you are in retirement.

Maria asks…

Which stocks are best to invest in?

I currently have $2,500 to invest in stocks. I’m looking for a short term investment to make money quickly. Any help is great!

John answers:

What is short term to you? If you are talking same day, the day after a holiday weekend is uncertain. Watching charts on some that looked good on Monday could tell one much.

I think FTCH is going to see a short term bump up monday, because it got lower than it really should and it has a cycle of doing so. Could be a good 40% bump up, but I am not sure. I love it for being worth several 100% of it’s current price within a month or so, and within a few months being worth much more than that and possible making gains in the 1000%s.

I’ll know a lot more Monday, summer trading is tricky.

George asks…

Where should I invest some of my money I made this summer? ?

I have made just over 4,000 dollars and I’m about to graduate college this up coming spring. I want to invest my money somewhere where I’ll make money. Should it be stocks or shareholding? I’m not quite sure where to go from here.
Any advice would be great, thanks.

John answers:

Do you have any debt, loans, or outstanding credit card balances? Pay those off completely first.

Do you have a job? If not, save your $4000. It’s not a lot of money, and you will need it to last until you do find a job. If you have a job, save the $4000 for now, as likewise, it’s not a lot of money. When you have more, consider talking to a financial adviser. Unless you are willing to read and learn countless hours of material on investing, it would be a good idea to not do it yourself.

Helen asks…

Why do I just want more MONEY no matter how much I get?

I like to invest & play stocks. But no matter how much I make, I just want to make more money everyday & lots of it. I am quite wealthy so please don’t think I’m an addicted gambler on the streets of Vegas with a 40.

Right now I’m making $750/mo off of investments.

At first it was great & felt good. But now I want more.

It’s frustrating. I don’t need the money for anything. I just want more.

John answers:

As the old saying goes “you can’t be too skinny nor too rich”
