Comments Off on BUYING APPLE STOCK BEFORE THE IPHONE 5 ANNOUNCEMENT

This is one of the things that I think is actually a smart thing to do, rather than a thing for dummies to do. If you want to get in on the iPhone 5 mania and make money buying Apple stock, you need to buy the stock NOW, before the September 12, 2012 announcement and NOT after the announcement.

Stocks run up on ANTICIPATION and before the announcement that is when the anticipation builds up. Once the announcement is made (along with any other news like perhaps the iPad mini), the stock might actually go down.

So, if you are thinking of profiting from Apples extreme popularity before the iPhone 5, the iPad mini, and the Apple TV you need to be buying the stock right now before any of those things actually become a reality. That is not saying that the stock will not go up after those things are rolled out but there might be a lull or even pull back between the announcement and the earnings that show just how popular those products are.

If you haven’t bought stock before, check out this quick tutorial on how to buy Apple stock.

DON’T BUY STOCKS BECAUSE RAPPERS RECOMMEND THEM ON TWITTER

Comments Off on DON’T BUY STOCKS BECAUSE RAPPERS RECOMMEND THEM ON TWITTER

Of all the stocks for dummies stories, this one has to be near or at the top.

Apparently rapper 50 Cent owns about 30 million shares of H&H Imports which is a penny stock. Right away warning signals should be going up for any knowledgable investor because penny stocks are very risky, especially ones that sell for between 5 and 10 cents.

Over the weekend the rapper started pumping the stock on Twitter to his 3.8 million followers. He was telling everyone they would double their money and that he owned the stock and they should too. In response to this, the stock at one point was up more than 240% all the way up to 39 cents. That equated to a gain very nice gain in the millions of dollars for 50 Cent.

The stock is down today more than 25% and he has now backed off his recommending it. Now he is telling everyone to do their homework before they buy but for those foolish folks who didn’t, it’s too late and many of them have gotten burned.

I’ve always said that penny stocks are for dummies but a story like this one is better than I ever thought I would find to illustrate it. It goes to show how gullible people are and how much influence celebrities have over their fans. It is really sad that so many people would buy a worthless stock just because a music rapper told them to. In reality, it is hard to feel sorry for those folks that have lost money on this bad penny stock.
