Rich and Poor

Published

on

I will start this article off by saying in no way am I a financial expert, or advisor. I am simply a young man who has spent many hours studying crypto, investing, and wealth in general and I would like to share my thoughts and findings with you. I have read multiple books around wealth including “The Richest Man In Babylon” and “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. I have also spent time studying family members who are successful, and who are not.

The first thing that sticks out to me about poor people is, they are afraid to take risks. I first began thinking about this topic while I was reading “The Richest Man in Babylon”. One of the lessons in the book was to be ready for opportunities and take them when they present themselves. Many people fail to prepare or are simply too afraid to act on the opportunities presented in their lives. Both are detrimental to their financial success, and can ultimately lead them to continue their poor mindset. I have also seen this in my life as well, with family members telling me stories of opportunities they missed, whether that be stocks they wanted to buy at bargain prices or prime real estate they passed on. Their reasoning behind each mistake was actually being afraid to make a mistake. When I see people who have generated great wealth, they talk about opportunities they took and ran with. The funny thing is many people did not see the opportunities back then or believed they were poor or would ultimately fail. However, the select few of those who took the opportunities used them to generate great wealth and prosper. Also, another important point to mention around the topic of risk, is these are calculated risks they are not “shots in the dark.” The successful people take time to prepare and understand the risk-reward ratio for each opportunity.

Do you work for money, or does money work for you? If you cannot answer this question or you would have to admit that you work for money, then ultimately your mindset is poor. This is the greatest way to generate wealth, in turn, it is also the most difficult thing to actually accomplish. What I mean by working for money is that you wake up every morning head to a job where you work for a set amount of hours, get paid a set amount of money, but ultimately you are working to make someone else rich. You are making your boss’s pockets bigger as well as the government’s. On the other side of things, if money works for you, your the one who is truly generating wealth. This can be a number of things, whether it be owning your own business, setting up a corporation (a great “hack” for the wealthy), or investing. Each of these vessels is a great way to reach your wealth creation goals, and ultimately you have to practice and learn about each to be able to take advantage of them. This is a really interesting topic, and one I plan on going deeper into it soon in another article!

Assets, assets, and more assets. Building on the previous idea of making money work for you buying assets is the best way to do this. To understand assets you must first know the difference between a liability and an asset. A liability is something that takes money out of your pocket, while an asset is something that puts money in your pocket. This is a very simple but effective definition of the two. An example of a liability would be your personal home or car. Both require you to pay money on a monthly basis, and the occasional fix for each. But on the other hand, an asset, like real estate, or stocks with dividends pay you on a monthly basis. Now obviously this is much easier said than done, real estate and investment are very trick, and require years of learning and experience to master, but if you know how to generate wealth you are a lot closer to actually doing it! Your own business is another example of an asset. A sort’ve secret “hack” the rich take advantage of is creating corporations. This is because corporations receive government tax breaks, and also take some of the risks of being sued for your assets away. Many people don’t understand a corporation does not require an office or a set number of people working for you. You simply need to pay a small fee and report certain financial documents to the government.

The last point of this article is maybe the most important. Poor people simply don’t take the time to educate themselves financially. The rich spend much more time educating themselves, than worrying about what other people are doing. They educate themselves on taxes, income, markets, and more. And due to their education, they realize they need to hire people to help them with managing their wealth, this includes lawyers accountants, assistants, and more. Again this is another example of making your money work for you. You are paying them to save you money, and generate income for you. It’s a very simple idea, but it is often times overlooked. They also understand ways to generate income, and ways to get around paying more taxes. Take the time to educate yourself financially, and see the impact it has on your wealth generation!

I hope this article helped you learn, and also take a look at how you are currently operating. Are you making money work for you? Are you scared to take calculated risks? I would love to hear your comments below! I would greatly appreciate if you upvote this article, resteem it, and follow me!

Is The U.S. Winning World War Trade?

Published

on

By

A global trade war

Since late 2017 President Donalt Trump has been threatening and levying tariffs on many of our economic allies. This has caused the global markets to experience volatility similar to the cryptocurrency markets .It is driven bythe uncertainty and FUD being spread by the media to investors, which has effectly created a direct correlation between the presidents actions and market movements. When the first tariffs went into effect the stock market took a masaive dive only to recover and dive again after anothe announcement of tariffs. Such volitility has led to increased fear of losin the trade war, yet it seems like this Tradewar has had far smaller of an effect in the U.S. than abroad.

Donald Trump is winning!!

when he started this trade war the president stated that “trade wars are easy to win” to racous dissent from the pundits and economists. Yet it seems that his confidence in the american economy was not misbegotten, since the trade war has started the stock market overall has been able to make gains on a weekly basis that has led it to approach new highs. Along with a booming stockmarket with companies reporting stellar earnings, the U.S. FED has also stated that interest rates will go up thanks to the stability of the economy. Meanwhile in Europe markets are struggling with various internal issues compounding the effect of trumos tariffs. China isn’t fairing any better with the majority of its stock market seeing red and thier central bank attempting to do currency acrobatics to stem the bleeding.

The end may be near

Now that all the rhetoric has passed it seems to be time for the ice to break and tensions to thaw. On wedensday August 22nd 2018 Chinese and American Officials will meetin to discuss trade terms and seek an end to the globally devastating war. Europe has already chose to come to the table an negotiate on the subject of tariffs so with Chinas apparent concession it seems that donald trup had actually wont the trade war. Maybe the other leaders realized it would be dumb to follow Trump down such a destructive path or maybe the U.S. economy is actually strong enough it could defeath the whole world in a fight!! Whatever the reasons it seems this saga of trumponomics is coming to an end, I dare say im excited to see what the future holds for us.

3 stocks you’ll thank yourself for buying in 10 years

stocks to buy

Disruption is a good thing

the world is changing at a breakneck speed and alot of it has to do with the plkethora of disruptive technologies and companies that are emerging in todays market. Everything from the areospace to the financial sector has seen a shake up in the who’s who amongst their ranks. It is frankly an exciting time in on the stock market as the trade wars unfold and earnings season seems to not even flinch. Currently several stocks are recovering from dips that occurred pre earnings season, thanks to the initiation of the USA/China trade war. This presents a tremendous buy opportunity as many of the most valuable stocks are available for great prices.

most of this list will focus on companies that are disrupting their respective fields and possibly extending tendrils into others.

Square will take you to the winners circle

Square(SQ) is a creditcard processingcompany that is takingthe financial services industry by storm. Since this timelast year Square has grown 191%, thanks largely to is popularity being boosted by services like buying and selling bitcoin. They have maintained solid growth even in the face of a floundering bitcoin market and rampant trade war rhetoric. It has proven that is ecommerce platform is here to stay and will continue to grow. Square is still trading below $100 at $72.90 but is likely to surpass that mark by the end of the year. Zacks rates Square as a 42% buy, because its growth could be stagnated by the increasing saturation of the mobile financial services arena.

The trade war casualty

One of the biggest value stocks that has recently been dipping is Alibaba (BABA) Chinas ecommerce giant. Its looking like the fears of escalations have driven retail investors to dump the stock. This dumping is cutting loose the weak hands and soon the Alibaba price will recover and surpass its current highs. With its earnings call around the corner on August 23rd you can rest assured this one is in for a wild ride! If your not into volatility I would suggest waiting until post earnings, but if you get in pre earnings you stand to make a nice earning in a very short period of time! Regardless of the impending pump, Alibaba is a value stock that you should grab and hold for at least 10 years.

One for the dividend lovers

Recently Intel has been taking a backseat to its younger rivals AMD and Nvidia which have both seen gains thanks to recent innovations and the cryptocurrency mining boom, which saw graphics cards sold out nearly world wide. Fortunately for you this has allowed intel to slide a bit, into affordable territory. Intel is a good buy for the long haul because not only does it offer a healthy dividend of 2.33% they also have a variety of new products slated to hit the market soon. Since 1966 Intel has be innovating, so it is very likely they will be around for the long haul. For now Intel is inside just about every computer and many cellular devices, they have such a huge marketshare its hard to miss such a value stock when its practically on sale. This stock is rated a 51% buy and would bea great addittion to any retirement portfolio..

The Mexican Peso Explosion.

Published

on

By

Mexico’s peso jump high as sentiments improved because the country’s next president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador may seek a kindred relationship with President Trump. In their meeting, Trump and Obrador talked The North American Free Trade Agreement, Border security and also a potential bilateral trade deal.

In the second quarter of 2018, the peso was one of the worst performers and this was mainly because the investors were scared of the leading contender’s leftist politics.

The peso showed a 2 percent increase(19.57 peso to 1 USD) on the 3 of July. This jump can be called the strongest closing level in more than a month.

The peso has benefitted from the high-interest rates(local) which have caused foreign investors to buy domestic bonds in Mexico by borrowing dollars.

Day traders and investors were encouraged after the meeting of the 2 Presidents and the fact that Lopez Obrador has pledged central bank autonomy and the peso being allowed to trade freely has helped a lot.
