Your Questions About Successful Trading Companies

Betty asks…

What do you like/wish for by an organic delivery service?

I have to create an delivery service for organic products. so my question: what would you really appreciate or wish for? Or do you know a company with great service?

thanks for each help.

John answers:

It was explained to me just a few days ago, that in UK (& NI), there is an excellent wholesale supplier of organic / vegetarian / vegan / Fair Trade foods etc., called SUMA, who deliver, for free to most parts of the UK.

The company is the only UK co. Who are an equality based co-operative.

They save people “bucket-loads of money” – they don’t sell to individuals, but people can form a group to buy that way. It is, I understand, very successful.

Just google Suma.

Laura asks…

How do you invest in stocks?

Where can I find information about stock companies that I can invest in? How do you invest in stocks?

John answers:

“Stock tips” aren’t really tips at all.

To do successful trades, you have to have your own set of trading rules.

I’m going to share with you some of my trading rules.

I can tell you 70+ members of our trading groups can’t be wrong. We follow our own sets of trading rules. Whether or not you’ll use them is another matter. I’ll also include some trading sayings.

A] “On Wall Street there aren’t any gifts.”
No one gives anyone else anything – not even stock tips.

B] Bulls [Buyers] earn money.
Bears [Sellers] earn money.
Pigs get fat.
Hogs [Greedy Traders] get slaughtered. They lose the money in their trading accounts.

C] Here’s what no one in our trading gruops won’t do:
1] We WILL NOT trade “cheap” [inexpensive] stocks. We will not trade .BB [dot BB, which is the Bulletin Board],
.PK [dot PK, which is the Pink Sheet]
O-T-C [Over-the-Counter].
The above stocks are far too risky and volatile.

2] We WILL NOT trade any stock which trades less than $26.51 per share. We do not want to be part of any “pity party”.

3] We WILL NOT trade any stock which has less than 400,000 shares/volume per day. Volume less than this makes the stock too risky and volatile for the retail trader. Those traders with deeper pockets [having more money] can trade stocks with less volume.

4] We WILL NOT trade any IPOs [Initial Public Offerings]. These stocks do not have any history to follow. They are far too risky.

5] We WILL NOT trade any stock with less than 18 months of trading history.

6] We WILL NOT trade against the trend.

7a] We WILL NOT trade any stock betwen the price of $45.01 to $55.51 up OR down. Stocks in this range are known as “the doldrums” – they have a tendency to get stuck and not move.
7b] We WILL NOT trade any stock from $73.01 to $76.51 another “doldrum range”.
7c] We WILL NOT trade any stock from $94.01 to $106.51 – yet another “doldrum range”.

D1] When we do our research, we check the following: The Earnings Announcement Date. This happens 4 times each year, about every 3 months. Different stocks have different EADs.
D2] We check for stock splits.
D3] We check the sector and the industry. We check for the trend in that stock’s sector.
D4] We ALWAYS check the news for each stock.

F] When ALL the criteria and rules are met: Plan your trade. THEN trade your plan.
When you know the proper strategies, know how to use them AND you follow your rules, you can earn money when the stock goes up.
You can earn money when the stock goes down,
You can earn money when the stock goes sideways.

USUALLY numbers in the stock market are expressed in percentages and in dollars and cents.

Here’s an example:
ABC is currently at $27.50 per share.
You did your investigating and research. This stock passed ALL your rules.
You have your entry at $27.78 or 1% to prove the stock’s trend.
Your target is $30.56 or 10%
IF the trade should go against you and you lose money, you will get out of the trade at $25.56 or 8%. This is so you can trade another day.

As a foot note: We DO NOT put any more than 15% of our total trading account balance in any one trade. If our balance is $10,000 we do not put any more than $1,500 into any trade. Our entry is $27,78. We can buy 50 shares of ABC. For some reason or another, brokerrs and others like rounded off numbers of shares.

Ken asks…

Is it possible to set up a company with just one address?

I’m wanting to set up my own company to work out of my home, but when I go to register through companies house, it states my registered office (while not needing to be my business address) cannot be the same as my residential address… help.

John answers:

I am not aware of this being a restriction, and I am aware of small Ltd companies that do use a home address as the company registered address. Are you sure you have not mis-read the instructions?

I also agree with the comments in Masked Landlord’s answer. If you are working on your own and from home then a Ltd company is almost certainly unneccessary bureaucracy and expense. Just trade as a sole-trader and see if the business takes off. If its successful you have the option to incorporate at any time.

Sandra asks…

How can i be an actress on disney channel?

I have auditioned for 2 companys Barbizon and IMCE something like >> i really want to act on disney channel but i don’t know how to what are the steps to get there??

thanks

John answers:

Hi,

the first thing that comes to mind after reading your question is, “Are you ready to audition for Disney?”. The reason I ask is because there has been an onslaught of questions here recently by folks asking the same question. It seems that Disney is the place everyone wants to be.

Having said that, you know that the people already working there are trained professionals. Are you? If so, then I have a suggestion for you. There are many actors who are very, very good, but don’t get seen and don’t get a chance to audition for the casting directors they really want to audition for, because they don’t have the business skills they need to be successful. And so, their talent goes unnoticed. What a shame. Really. I have a friend who was like that for a long time and now she is beginning to come around.

In the long-term, you will want to develop these four areas, these four key factors if you want to be successful in this industry. Studying and taking classes is a given as is studying the industry (which, by the way will help you to be able to answer that question for yourself in the future). In addition there are these four thing:

1) KNOWING YOURSELF AND FIGURING OUT EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT: greater knowledge of yourself: strengths, weaknesses, resources you have at your disposal (and not only financial!)
Clarity of your vision for the future of your career in a very detailed way. If you can do that, your actions will be more focused and you will waste less time and energy. To put it in a positive sense, you will optimize your efforts and probably get results faster.
2) DEVELOPING YOUR MOTIVATION & CREATIVITY: The ability to keep yourself motivated to do what is necessary daily to further your career. Knowing how to do that will help you tremendously!
The creativity and innovation to apply in promoting yourself and helping you to stand out. You can imagine how important that will be with all the competition there is!
3) PUTTING TOGETHER A PLAN: a solid and detailed plan for how you intend to achieve that vision. Many people think that planning is writing some stuff down on a piece of paper and doing those things. There’s much more to it than that!
4) MANAGING YOUR BUSINESS: essential business skills that will help you to be successful as the free-lance professional that you are as an actor. Unfortunately many actors don’t realize that they are in business, with a product to sell and promote, that is themselves.

I have been paying close attention to actors now for the last 3 1/2 years and I have seen it over and over again. So, so many actors overlook these basic, four crucial steps and when I see acgors who are successful, a good percentage of the time, they have met all four characteristics. When I see actors stumbling around, wallowing around, not really getting anywhere in their careers, most of the time it leads back to one or more of these four things.

So what’s the answer to your question?

Go to the following page and take the actor quiz. It will help you realize some things you know and things that you don’t but should know with regard to your acting career. Http://www.actingcareerstartup.com/actor_quiz.html

Make sure you are prepared, so take classes and be the best you can be.

Study the industry, so you know what’s going on.
Start with this basic industry trade paper:

Ross Reports. It comes out monthly and has information you need about who to get in touch with.

And whatever you do, don’t forget to work on yourself.

Good luck!

Paul asks…

How do you choose what stock to purchase?

I’m just getting into investing, and all I see in some professional videos are very complicated looking graphs with linear lines everywhere, and I also here about “strategies”.

What I want to know is how do you go about purchasing stocks? Is the main idea to research (look up recent news of a company i.e. maybe new products expected to be a top seller), look at all the ratios a stock has (p/e eps etc), and hope for the best?

Or is it more to it? It’s like everyone is TRYING to make it seem very complicated to the point that I have no clue on how most successful investors choose a stock they want to invest in! All I hear is strategy this, do tons on research on that- *how do YOU decide on whether or not you invest in a stock???*

John answers:

They are two approach to decide when to enter and exit a trade. The Fundamental Analysis (numbers, ratios, etc.) and the Technical Analysis (Charts, Volume, Moving Average,etc.)

In order to be successful for most trades, you need to do both: a fundamental analysis on the company and then enter the trade when technical analysis is favorable.

It is a lot of work but don’t give up as it is worth it.
