Richard asks…

What website should I go with to invest in stocks? (Points, credit, best answer, etc..)?

What website should I go with to invest in stocks?
I have heard of AmeriTrade, ShareBuilder, etc…

What companies do you all recommend? what is the average fee per stock? what are some advantages and disadvantages to each company and likes and dislies?

will give points

financi4 answers:

I use sharebuilder. I like it, i just use the basic free service. Trades seem to be pretty fast and real time, the site is easy to figure out. Plus i have an INGdirect.com savings account that used to get 3% interest (they dropped it down to 1.5% now) thats linked and i can instantly transfer money back and forth for free where it takes a couple days to clear with other banks that arent affiliated. Its $10 a basic trade, but if you devote a certain % of your pay check and invest at monthly intervals its $4 (i havent tried that yet). If you want a lot of their tools and stuff you have to pay a monthly subscription for the more advanced services, you get a 30 day trial with them and honestly i wasnt that impressed you can find just as good of research stuff for free elsewhere. I think scottrade is the cheapest at $7 a trade but ive never used it, though ive mostly heard good things about it so they might be worth looking into. If you decide to go with sharebuilder send me your email in private message and ill put you in as a referred friend, itd get me 5 free trades and you $25 more to lose in this crappy economy 🙂 i would probably stay away from ameritrade since they seem to be having a lot of financial woos, though maybe theyre fine i havent really paid any attention to them lately

Robert asks…

Which one is better ? having a high salary job or investing and making profits in real state, stocks,…what?

are advantages and disadvantages of each method ? can you make a living just by investing or you need a fixed job beside that ?
Please explain and also mention your own experiences.

financi4 answers:

High Salary Job:
Pros – Job security, insurance, retirement plan, pension
Cons – College degree needed in most cases, 40 hour work week, have to answer to somebody, limited vacation

Investor:
Pros – Work when you want, where you want, take vacations whenever you want, don’t have to answer to anybody, do not need a degree, shorter work weeks
Cons – No job security, a bad decision can cost you greatly, initial capital needed for investment, no insurance, no retirement, no pension

Some people make money solely on investing. But where do you get the money to initially invest? A job. (Or inheritance)

George asks…

How to start investing?

I am 16 years and I am thinking in investing. I know you need money in order to make money, I have about 400 dollars. And I want make it bigger. So what is the advantages and disadvantages of independent stocks and funds. I know the basic concept of independent stocks and funds, but I want to know in detail. And what are they. And what good company should I use to invest in stocks. I know that if you are underage you can get a co-operation from your parents account, that is what I am going to do. (Oh and can someone suggest a good book in which you can use in order to learn about investing). THANK YOU!!
omg sarah I wanted to learn about investing since it would be a correct move towards my future and becuase it is a good way to earn extra cash. I DID NOT ask for online jobs, okay? Sorry if I am being hateful but whatever you said had nothing to do with what I asked.

financi4 answers:

Ok, you need to keep with the times, im 17 and have made quite alot, because of this recession. You need to look for gaps in the market? Answer me this, if the world is in a recession, where are they going to shop? Pound land! I wish i had invested more, however, im only 17, and didnt want to loose my money. I have now £14,000 saved up 🙂
basically, you need to look for gaps. Another one was BP, they were obvioulsy going to get back up, cus they make millions a day, however i chose not to invest. The shares rose by 5% one night!
Yes you do need to look around. I wouldnt buy books, because times change real quick.
Visit the link, and it shows, that you should invest in houses, it says that house prices should go up 5% a year 🙂
good luck, and remmeber its a gamble 🙂

Daniel asks…

Accounting help, please. A company is currently seeking additional capital to expand its operations. ?

Company #1 is interested in investing in the organization and, therefore, would like to have part ownership through the sale of new stock.

Company #2 is interested in providing a loan to the company

Companies have two ways to finance their growth: equity financing or debt financing, right? In equity financing the company is selling stock to generate cash. What are the advantages and disadvantages of selling stock? Debt financing is borrowing money. Is there a difference in the information that a lender and an investor would want? Which would be of interest to the lender and which would be of interest to the investor. What about the statement of cash flows, would this be useful? Explain any differences in the information that you have chosen to highlight and offer reasons why lenders and investors need specific information.

financi4 answers:

Well, if they sell stocks, they lose control of the company. In exchange, they can expand and make more money. But, by selling stocks, they also have a no risk opportunity to expand. If they fail, they do not need to pay back the money generated from the sale of the stocks.
In a loan, the company has to pay back with interest, regardless if they are successful or not. If this loan is large enough, it couple push the company down.
The interest to the lender is to have a strong business plan, which already has a successful track record, and a high interest rate that is back with collateral.
The interest to the investor would be a strong business plan, a successful track record, and a low risk plan that shows reasonable evidence of future profits. Statement of cash flows would be useful to the lender and investor. The investor doesnt want to wait to see their profits. They dont want to wait 40 years to see profits. They want to see it within 3 years. The lender doesnt really care. But, does want to see that the company is definately capable of making their minimum monthly payments.
Each need different specific information because each has different needs as explain earlier.

Mark asks…

Is it better to pay off house with funds or invest for retirement?

I am planning to retire in about 10-12 years and have a windfall from a stock spilt. What are the advantages and disadvantages from paying down my house loan with the funds from the stock spilt or would it be better to invest the money until retirement to take advantage of writing off interest from my mortgage on my income tax? Would buying an investment property be a better solution?

financi4 answers:

Excellent Question! Most people are faced with this.

Let me explain how I think and you should then be able to decide for your self.

When you take a mortgage, the interest paid is tax deductible. Hence even if you have a 6% Mortgage, your effective interest paid is just 3.7%. Where else will you get money at such ridiculously low rates?

I have been with a financial planner and he is pitching me post tax 9.2% which is pre-tax 14%.

So if you don’t repay your mortgage and invest it, you will stand to gain atleast 5%. This implies atleast $5000 more each year for every 100K in Mortgage.

I am myself a realtor, so I understand a bit more in real estate. The way it works in Real estate is very different. Say you invest in a financial instrument, you get a return of 9.2% after tax on the 100K. But if you invest the same 100K in Real Estate, you would be buying a property worth atleast 500K, or 1 Million. If this property appreciates at just 4%, much higher in places like California / Florida etc. If you consider that you are buying a 500K property with 20% down, the return on your investment will be 4% X 5 (Leveraging) = 20% per year. You can manage this investment pretty well using 1031 exchange etc. To be able to defer payment of taxes till retirement.

If you buy a property with a 10% down at 1 Million, your return will be over a 40%.

You need to seek a right reward to risk ratio. If you plan your investments well using a Estate Planner, Financial Planner and a Realtor, you will be able to reap good returns and save money from taxes.

Disclosure: I am a Realtor in San Jose, California working with Century 21.

Thomas asks…

Can someone please tell me about the benefits that CFD has to offer?

People have told me a lot about the disadvantages of “Contract For Difference”. I got to know that it is expensive to run for a long period and it makes taking up of stock difficult unless it is pre- arranged. I was just wondering, there must be some advantages too why people actually still invest in CFD. Can someone please tell me about the benefits that CFD has to offer?

financi4 answers:

Basically it comes down to gearing. You don’t have to put down the full value of the shares, only a percentage of the full value.

Larger gains for smaller initial capital outlay but larger losses also.

Paul asks…

33% Company Stock: Real Significance?

Hi there!

I have been offered a job in a growing company beginning a start-up operation in a new country. I have been offered a basic starting salary and the option to enter a partnership with them after a year. After two years I would be transferred 11% of their stock, after three years, 22%, and after four years, 33%. There are currently two owners. I would be an “equal” partner with them after four years.

I understand that stock values rise if the company is doing well, meaning that you can then sell them for a good price and profit. But does it mean anything for me in terms of cash in hand BEFORE I sell them?

Question one: is it a guarantee that a company will pay out dividends (cash in hand, right?) and use only SOME money to re-invest, or is that something very important to ask? Is there any other way, if dividends are not paid out and I do not sell, that owning stock gets me cash in hand?

Question two. When the offer says that stock will be “transferred” to me, does that mean as a gift? Or am I “paying” for it by accepting an ongoing basic salary without a rise? Or do I pay in real cash, and the term is misleading?

Question three: is there anything else I should know re: advantages and disadvantages of being a company owner like this?

Many thanks!

financi4 answers:

1st… Having stock in a small company doesn’t mean that you can trade it. There’s no market for a stock with 3 owners. Secondly as a insider and large shareholder your shares would most likely be restricted anyway, even if there was a market. You would only be able to sell your shares under certain circumstances after a period of time. Of course I’m basing this on US Secs Law. Look up Rule 144a

You would have a direct participation in profits as a large shareholder but small companies do not usually pay dividends, there is no guaranty of dividends. You will not get cash in hand unless you sell or dispose of your stock in some way.

You would be receiving equity in lieu of cash as part of your compensation package. You will have to claim it as income. If the equity has value, you will have to pay taxes on that value, whether you sell the stock or not.

An offer like this can be a great thing if the company takes off, or it can be a bust. One thing for sure is that you should have an atty look over any employment contract you recieve, as I’m not sure you really understand what you are getting into here, They might say something, but the contract can say somethign completely different. And the contract would stand up in court, should you ever find yourself there.

The days of watching movies on the cheap via the Web may soon be over.

Time Warner Cable and U.S. pay-TV companies, weighing how to profit from surging Internet demand spurred by Netflix and Hulu, are on the verge of instituting new fees on Web-access customers who use the most data.

At least one major cable operator will institute usage-based billing next year, predicts Craig Moffett, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. in New York. He said Cox Communications, Charter Communications or Time Warner Cable may be first to charge Web-access customers for the amount of data they consume, not just transmission speed.

“As more video shifts to the Web, the cable operators will inevitably align their pricing models,” Moffett said. “With the right usage-based pricing plan, they can embrace the transition instead of resisting it.”

U.S. providers have weighed usage-based plans for years as a way to squeeze more profit from Web access, and to counter slowing growth and rising program costs in the TV business. While customer complaints hampered earlier attempts, pay-TV companies are testing usage caps and price structures that point to the advent of permanent fees.

According to media researcher SNL Kagan, about 12.1 million U.S. households will receive TV shows and movies from Internet services rather than a traditional pay TV provider by 2015, up from 2.5 million homes at the end of 2010.

Cable’s best option is to find ways to profit from the online shift, said Moffett. If the companies were to lose all of their video customers, the revenue decline would be more than offset by a lower programming fees and set-top box spending.

In the end, it will be the best thing that ever happened to the cable industry,” Moffett said.

William asks…

Is it okay for a 38-year-old man to date a woman who is almost 20 and without legal status in the country?

So I know this East Asian guy. He is close to 40. Single. Never married. No kids. And he is dating a woman who is almost 20. (Okay, she is really 19.)

It is not like he is a loser or something. He went to top-ranked schools, (i.e., Stanford for Computer Science and Economics, and then MIT for MBA,) graduated summa cum laude and magna cum laude . Has a great job, and have a consulting business on the side. He earned well over $240,000 in 2010. Owns his own home. Owns stocks and bonds. Owns rental and commercial properties, (some in the US, some in Asia.) He even just bought a small yacht. He has terrific credit score and has no credit card debt. He plays the piano and violin. Speak seven different languages, (i.e., English, Mandarin/Cantonese, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, German, Russia.) He has never smoked and never used drugs. He does not even drink.

The only vices he has is that he plays too much video game and spend too much money on buying gadgets and toys (for his age,) and he is a bit short (he is 5’9″.) He stays in shape and work out twice or thrice weekly.

Why isn’t he married or dating a woman his own age? For whatever reasons unknown, women were never really interested in him when he was younger. Maybe he was socially awkward, (but he has outgrown his shyness;) or maybe he spent his 20s and early 30s working and working; or maybe he is Asian, and the dating scene back in the 1990s and early 2000s was not particularly receptive to Asian men (unless they just wanted to date Asian women.)

The problem is the women his age are usually divorcees, single mothers, or have too much baggage; and he believes he deserves better. Although he likes cute kids, he really, really does not want to deal with single mothers or another man’s kids. He wants kids someday, but just not other men’s kids. For whatever reasons, he did not date a lot in his 20s and early 30s. Now that he has finally started to look around, all the good women his age are gone. It seems like he is surrounded by single women who are divorcees or single moms, and it is depressing.

The women his age also do not share any interest with him. The women his age do not play video games or know anything about the video game culture, do not go to Lady Gaga concerts or comic con.

Which brings us to the girl he is dating right now. They met through an online gaming session, and then they arranged to meet at a Lady Gaga concert. So they already have plenty of similar interests right there. They even like the same genres of video games, music, movies, and same types of foods and toys. She also loves video games and technology. And, honestly, she is young and much hotter than the women his age, and hotness play a huge factor. What guys don’t want to be with a hot girl?

They have been together for over a year. (So they met when she was 18.) The problem is that he has not told any friend or anyone in his family (who are mostly old women) about the girl. Honestly, I think the age gap really bothers him more than it bothers her, but it bothers him more and more as the relationship becomes more and more serious. But EVERYTHING ELSE is just great. He has never felt happier and younger when he is with her.

Also, the girl is from South America and she is not a resident in the United States. (Although you would not be able to tell she is not an American just by looking at and talking to her.) Just a couple week ago, he has (pretending to be joking) talk about the prospect of marrying her and petition for her legal status, and she is very receptive. You may think she may be using him for green card, but honestly he is okay with that. Because he thinks he is still getting the better deal in this whole relationship.

The problem is the… the age issue. He is really really afraid/embarrassed to met her parents or introduce her to his mom and friends because she is so young, even though he really loves her. The legal status issue they can just keep it to themselves, but the age issue is obvious. So what should he do about it??

financi4 answers:

Age is just a number. Most people dont agree. They think that older people cant date younger people becase thats wrong. But i dont find anything wrong with it when there’s love in between. There ofcoures well always be poeple out there trying to separate whats called love. But the chains are so stong no one can break it apart but the person who’s in the relartionship. Were not iternal so why not ejoy the great things that come to us. It can be a little hard for an older man to date a young person but its more harder to let them go for just the age. From what you wrote i find the guy very cool. No drugs, no alcohol. I would say the girl got lucky despite of the age. Depsite of what everyone says. No one has the righ to break someone apart becase one person is older and the other perosn is younger. I think they should proudly say they are in love and ejoy life becase no one knows of the day we just might die. Anyway hoiped i helped.

John asks…

If a U.S. economic crises can affect Europe, can a European debt crises affect the United States?

Also, the United States govt. is currently operating on a “too big to fail” doctrine. But at what point will the U.S. govt. start having a debt crises?? (I mean other countries are EVENTUALLY going to realize we have no intention/means to pay any of these debt off, right??)

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100428/ap_on_bi_ge/eu_europe_financial_crisis

BERLIN – Europe’s debt crisis mushroomed Wednesday as Spain saw its credit rating lowered, just as Germany sought to reassure nervous investors that Greece would not be allowed to go under, saying Berlin’s share of a key aid package could be approved in the next few days.

Stock and bond markets had begun to regain their composure after stinging downgrades of Greece and Portugal the day before, when Standard & Poors delivered more bad news by cutting Spain’s rating to AA from AA+ amid concerns about the country’s growth prospects following the collapse of a construction bubble.

“We now believe that the Spanish economy’s shift away from credit-fuelled economic growth is likely to result in a more protracted period of sluggish activity than we previously assumed,” Standard & Poor’s credit analyst Marko Mrsnik said.

Spain is considered the key to whether Europe’s debt crisis can be resolved — its economy is much larger than that of Greece and Portugal and — many in the markets postulate — may be just too big to bail out if it gets into serious trouble.

Though its overall debt burden is fairly modest at around 53 percent of national income, the country is running a high budget deficit and has done less than others to get a handle on its public finances.
pilip……….”y don’t we all forgive each others’ debts and start from zero?”

I don’t think there will be much forgiving, but we are definitely going back to zero at some point. (Kinda creepy when you consider what people like McKenna have been saying for decades)

financi4 answers:

The US will affected on the trading side of business. American exports will cost more to Europeans because the Euro is continually sliding in value against the US dollar despite the massive debt we have. All American companies that export to Europe will be hurt. The entire European Union is going to go into a recession. We will see in the coming months how it will affect us. The US dollar will still go down in value still which will cause our own problems, but Europe will not be the reason for our collapse.
