It So Difficult To Wait At The Dock

I am writing this right now as a diversion! I want to buy something so bad today but a  Low Tide  has not formed so I should sit back and wait for it. A  High Tide  recently rose to +9% and research showed a  Low Tide  forming in the near future was likely. Sure enough, the winds ( VIX ) have started increasing and the tide has started falling but I find myself chomping at the bit to buy something even though a  Low Tide  has not been verified. Investing with discipline and patience  is very difficult, in part, because the weather is so hard to predict. Buy too soon and you drop with the tide, but if you stay on the dock during a  High Tide , you miss out on gains. Trust the research. Fair winds and following seas and buy  low and sell high!

Cheap Stocks To Buy

Image
Trading stocks has been a popular topic lately with stories like Gamestop $GME dominating the headlines. Take a look at this chart by Google Trends showing the number of searches for "cheap stocks" since 2004: Cheap Stock Google Searches When Hurricane Corona hit the market last March, searches for "cheap stocks" spiked before subsiding and then exploding again recently. So what is a "cheap stock"? Is a penny stock cheaper than a stock that trades for more than $1,000 per share? Which is cheaper: a stock you can buy for $0.05 or a stock that costs $567? The answer is slightly complicated and it is probably best explained by an old saying in capitalism which is "the price for anything is what someone is willing to pay for it." So was Gamestop $GME worth $300 per share? It was for whoever paid $300 per share at the time to buy it but it isn't worth $300 at this moment! Invest in companies and not symbols. Generally speaking, instead of looking
