Stock Selecting and Investing

Stock selecting has shown to be a bit of a challenge for people, yet it’s not as difficult as it should be. Some of the guidelines get perplexed which can result in disarray.

Some techniques will assist in minimizing your time and selecting stocks to invest.

Search for Assured Price Drive

Where do you look for Assured price drive companies with real momentum?  Your source should be one that is not just the opinion of a Brokerage firm or from the potential biases of financial reporters.

In financial newspapers seek the Highs list of paper for the 52 weeks.   You will be able to observe the trends of a year instead of just in a day.  Looking at the highs and lows as it develops over the year is a more accurate way of investing.  Seeing the big picture assist in our decision making sets a tone for us to discard the stocks that do not increase.
Make yourself aware of how frequently a company reacts to a price when a situation is negative.  Also, be conscious of how often a company either closes or trades at a new price during actual circumstances.

Checking the Highs list is does not guarantee always good results, but it is just as good as the advice you may get from your broker or even better because it is not tainted with biases.

Some may reveal that choosing your stocks and what you invest is better than having someone else choose for you.  Why?

  • You will know why you picked the stock
  • You don’t have to give the responsibility of taking care of your money to another person. As they may be busy checking other accounts to provide you with the quality attention you deserve.
  • The closer the attention you give to your portfolio the better your finances; unfortunately, not all of us have the luxury of giving the desired attention. The wealthy seem to have that luxury by using their advisors and brokers.

We’ve always been taught to diversify, and that’s another technique. Expand your stocks in different industries.  Diversification is to help reduce some risk by spreading your money out.

Beware of Stocks that move microscopically during a positive and negative market.  Reason being is that these are conservative choices that may not perform optimally.

There is also what we call defensive stocks.  Avoid these stocks.  The outlook for these increasing in prices is minimal.   Utilize your time better. Although these stocks are well, in general, they do not provide a much as the stocks that are riskier.  In your portfolio, for the forward portion put a little more risk in stalks that make a lot more money.

Before making a decision on purchases, it is best to check out the news and the highlights of the company.  Especially concentrate on the buyouts and takeovers.

It would be to your best interest to avoid buying stocks a result of a buyout.  You can check this in the price charts.  When you are buying stocks make sure you check out the price charts history of the company for the past two years.  Check out the chart of stocks with explosive price patterns for the year.  You can observe these charts on the computer, or view published data.  You can find some tables in the book of stock charts.

These charts are only necessary for selecting your stock with original information.   Charts are only a glance of the trend of the stock.  You won’t need to carry your data around to manage your portfolio with these tables.  It is just useful for getting a quick tip.

US Vows 100% Tariffs on French Champagne, Cheese, Handbags Over Digital tax

The US government on Monday said it may slap punitive duties of up to 100 percent on $2.4 billion in imports from France of Champagne, handbags, cheese and other products, after concluding that France’s new digital services tax would harm US tech companies.

The US Trade Representative’s office said its “Section 301” investigation found that the French tax was “inconsistent with prevailing principles of international tax policy, and is unusually burdensome for affected US companies,” including Alphabet Inc’s Google, Facebook, Apple and

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the government was exploring whether to open similar investigations into the digital services taxes of Austria, Italy and Turkey.

“The USTR is focused on countering the growing protectionism of EU member states, which unfairly targets US companies,” Lighthizer said. His statement made no mention of proposed digital taxes in Canada or Britain.

The US trade agency said it would collect public comments through Jan. 14 on its proposed tariff list as well as the option of imposing fees or restrictions on French services, with a public hearing scheduled for January 7.

It did not specify an effective date for the proposed 100% duties.


The list targets some products that were spared from 25 percent tariffs imposed by the United States over disputed European Union aircraft subsidies, including sparkling wines, handbags and make-up preparations – products that would hit French luxury goods giant and cosmetics maker L’Oreal hard.

Gruyere cheese, also spared from the USTR aircraft tariffs levied in October, featured prominently in the list of French products targeted for 100 percent duties, along with numerous other cheeses.

The findings won favor from US lawmakers and US tech industry groups, who have long argued that the tax unfairly targets US firms.

“The French digital services tax is unreasonable, protectionist and discriminatory,” Senators Charles Grassley and Ron Wyden, the top Republican and Democrat, respectively, on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a joint statement.

Spokespeople for the French embassy and the European Union delegation in Washington could not immediately be reached for comment.

But prior to the release of the USTR’s report, a French official said that France would dispute the trade agency’s findings, repeating Paris’ contention that the digital tax is not aimed specifically at US technology companies.

“We will not give up on taxation” of digital firms, the official said.

France’s 3 percent levy applies to revenue from digital services earned by firms with more than €25 million ($27.86 million) in French revenue and €750 million (£644 million) worldwide.

The USTR’s report and proposed tariff list follow months of negotiations between French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire and US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin over a global overhaul of digital tax rules.

The two struck a compromise in August at a G7 summit in France that would refund US firms the difference between the French tax and a new mechanism being drawn up through the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

But Trump never formally endorsed that deal and declined to say whether his French tariff threat was off the table.

Stocks Just Spiked to Record Highs After China Budged on a Key US Trade Demand



According to a Fox Business report, China “issued a document to ‘effectively curb’ violations of intellectual property rights such as trademarks and copyrights.” This move is aimed at increasing the chances of a trade deal between the two largest economies. The S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq Composite Indexes reached all-time highs after China’s statement.

Adam Phillips, director of portfolio strategy for EP Wealth Advisors, said “I don’t think we would be seeing these types of deals if the outlook for markets and the economy weren’t favorable. This is one additional piece we can look at to see the outlook for markets is a positive one.”

Bloomberg reported that equities climbed across Asia, “led by those in Hong Kong, where local elections brought a landslide victory to pro-democracy candidates. The dollar gained versus the euro and yen.”

Andrew Yang Wants You to Make Money Off Your Data by Making it Your Personal Property



Andrew Yang, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, plans to regulate the tech industry by prioritizing in giving people the right to own their personal data (“data as a property right”), thus allowing them to make money by sharing it with companies. Currently, companies entirely own users’ data – users do not have much control over it.

Yang said, “our data is now worth more than oil” and gave emphasis to the great amount of data people create and how companies make money over it. “By implementing measures to increase transparency in the data collection and monetization process, individuals can begin to reclaim ownership of what’s theirs,” he said.

He also cited a report saying that the collection and use of Americans’ personal data has become a $198 billion industry. Yang believes that people should have more control over their data, such as being able to see how their data is being used and having the freedom to opt out if they choose.

Yang added that we need politicians “who understand technology and a modern way to regulate it,” as reported by Engadget. “In order to regulate technology effectively, our government needs to understand it. It’s embarrassing to see the ignorance some members of Congress display when talking about technology, and anyone who watched Congress question Mark Zuckerberg is well aware of this,” said Yang.
