Your Questions About How To Pick Stocks To Buy

Joseph asks…

Since United is buying Continental would it be good to buy Continental (cal) or United (uaua) ?

I am new to stock buying and could use some good advice.

John answers:

I wouldn’t buy either, until evidence of a stronger economy is here, which may be many years away. Preferrably, an oil, gold, or big drug company will probably be a better choice. Take a look at KOG, CGR, and you pick the pharm/biotech.

You may also want to learn about stock charting. This will give you great help in deciding better when to buy and sell.

John answers:

Shares go up and down. Some pay dividends (from company profits). You try to pick shares whose profits are likely to grow. Hopefully the share price moves up if you have chosen wisely.
If you don’t know what you are doing then you will more than likely lose money and be paying some broker for the priveledge!
