Your Questions About How To Pick Stocks To Buy

Donna asks…

Can I pick up UPS packages somewhere when I’m on the road?

I have a small internet business and I get my stock shipped to me by UPS. I want to buy an RV and travel around the united states. My only concern is how to get my stock shipped to me if I don’t have a home? Anyone have any ideas?

John answers:

Find out where the UPS package centers are in the places you will be going to and have your stock sent there to be held for pick up. Just make sure your supplier indicates HOLD FOR PICKUP on their shipments.

GUYS: Have you ever had to go buy tampons for your GF, wife, or sister?

Last night I went out shopping with my best friend (we’re both girls) and we went to Target to stock up on woman things like razors, shampoo, tampons, etc. When we were at the tampon isle, this guy walked down the isle and was “hovering” there. He was acting like he was embarassed to be down the isle, was all anxious and couldn’t decide what to get. He was freaking out. So I laughed and asked him if he needed any help finding something. He was mortified but he let me help him pick a box and then ran away. So, my question to you is, why is buying tampons or pads such a big deal? I’ve sent a guy before and he absolutely hated it, and it seems like most guys do. Have you ever had to buy them and how was your experience lol? Did it traumatize you for life or could you care less? And how old were you when it happened? Honestly, I just don’t understand why guys make such a big deal of it… Thanks!

This guy had to be 25-30, in case you were wondering
Bender – good point, but honestly, if a woman needs them, she can make do with whatever you get her. But then again, we get really bitchy on our periods, so I can see getting mad haha.

Lunatic – That’s a good point, but I don’t think it’s necessarily true…it could be that he’s a good big brother, son, friend, etc. I know thay my big brother has picked me up tampons a few times actually and it was really sweet of him (I guess having GFs had gotten him used to that before he had to get them for me) and I’ve also had one of my best guy friends buy them for me before. He was pretty embarassed about it, but I think that’s a litte more understandable for him because he’s an only child, raised by his dad and was only like 18 at the time.

As a guy who has to do this..here is why. Guys are immature and let things like this make us feel stupid. We want to be all macho and stuff and wont even take a shortcut thru the womens underwear section in a store. It’s stupid, I know. Once you have to buy this stuff once or twice then it becomes no big deal and it was probably this guys first time. Another reason is because we don’t want to buy he wrong thing and get yelled at so we have to stand there forever and read all the boxes since we are unfamiliar with the products and the longer we stand there the stupider we feel.I am sure after he got out of the store and was able to breath he appreciated your help.

Richard asks…

Poll: would you buy Pandora bead bracelets?

I work in a small locally owned jewelry store. I’m pretty much in charge of inventory and what we carry. My boss was speaking with another store we network with about an unrelated issue, and they happened to mention that ever since they introduced Pandora Jewelry, they can’t keep it in stock and we should try it. So naturally, I’m in charge of finding out how popular it is, since we carry nothing like it (we mostly carry estate/antique jewelry, pearls and bridal and do a lot of custom work). The store that mentioned it was selling well is in Vermont, we are in Arizona, so Im not sure of the difference in east coat vs west coast clients. We would be the only store in town that carries it.

-would you buy the Pandora bead bracelets?
-if so, why or why not?
-what part of the country are you in?

Thanks in advance, I will pick a best answer, and I hope to find out if this is a good fit for our store.
We do have another company that offers a similar style, but are much less than Pandora. They are not a well known brand, but look essentially the same and offer them in sterling and 14k gold and cost about 30% less. Would this possibly be a better option, keeping price point in mind over brand recognition?

John answers:

I live in north east england and in my opinion no i would not buy them. 🙂 they’re much to exspensive and you can just get cheaper one’s that look exactly the same! However, all my friends have them and want more so I think them stocking them would be a good idea. 🙂 hope this helps

Steven asks…

what is the best way to buy airplane tickets? etc.?

Does anyone have advice for finding the cheapest flight tickets for a trip a few months away?
I am planning to fly to Japan in December. The dates are flexible.
Are travel agents obsolete? Are some websites better than others? What is the difference between working with a specific airline, working with a search engine like kayak.com or something like travelocity? How do those websites even work?
So my main question is about techniques for watching airline tickets like the stock market and picking the best deal. But I’m also curious about how these websites get their tickets and deals and if there is something besides those where I can look for a deal. Hopefully this can open up into a great thread on travel deals in general. Thanks Answers community!

John answers:

I think it’s best to check out the online sites (like expedia, orbitz, etc) as well as the websites for the airlines. Also, you may want to check with some Japanese travel agents, such as JTB – they frequently offer promotional deals.

In my experience, traveling to/from Japan in December is expensive. If you’re on the east coast in the US, you may be looking at $1200 r/t. Tickets can be as cheap as $700. The fluctuation in prices seem to be a hit-or-miss type thing. Check frequently, and if you see a deal that’s good, take it.
