Where to go to Learn About Investing

The first few months can be tricky when trying to get into the investing game. I struggled, as many of you reading this probably will too, to know where to get information and learn about owning securities. After three years of what I would call amateur investing, here is what I think is the best list of things to do when starting out in the daunting investing world. Use Investopedia Investopedia is, like the name entails, the investing encyclopedia. There are a ton of defini

Does Shopify Have Pricing Power?

With news out today that Shopify is expanding vertically into e-commerce fulfillment, I thought it would be timely to write about their pricing power. If you don’t know already, Shopify is a subscription service that provides solutions for e-commerce sales, in-store sales, payment processing, and now, in the near future, delivery fulfillment. Here is what the company had to say about their new delivery initiatives, which they are rumored to be spending $1 billion on: “Our sma

What is Your Investing Range?

I’m halfway through the book Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World and already think it should be required reading for anyone looking to be a happy, successful investor. The author, David Epstein, was interviewed or talked about on multiple podcasts I listen to, which has turned into a surprisingly great way to develop a reading list. A short summary of the book would be this: popular culture would have you believe in order to be the best of the best you need

Robintrack: the Best Investing Site You’ve Never Heard Of

I recently discovered Robintrack, a website dedicated to (you guessed it) tracking the investment moves of Robinhood users. Chart screenshots periodically show up on Twitter, so if you’ve seen anything like this before, chances are it came from Robintrack: The beauty of these charts is their simplicity. The green line shows how many users owned a company over a certain time frame, and the pink line is the stock price over that same period. However, within these charts is a tr

eSports has Grown Up Fast, but This is Just the Beginning

Let’s travel back ten years. Gaming, as we knew it then, was a niche industry with a somewhat fringe user base. Most of you, if asked to picture someone playing video games, would have pictured a lonely guy glued to his basement television. Everyone (well, mostly just suburban parents) gave video games a bad rap because they wrongly believed it caused obesity and violence in kids. Like television, radio, and books before them, video games got unjustified negativity because th

iRobot Looks Fine if You’re Playing the Long Game

Robotic vacuum maker iRobot reported its 1st quarter earnings on Tuesday and got absolutely roasted in after-hours trading. Shares are down 14.76% on the news, making it one of the worst days ever for the stock. I personally thought it was a bit of an overreaction, but it still wasn’t a great showing. Here are the highlights from the report: Sales of $237.7 million in Q1, up 9% YoY. GAAP earnings per share of $0.78 compared to $0.71 in the 1st quarter of 2018. Reaffirmed full

Disney is Treating Streaming as a Loss Leader

At a media event on April 11th, 2019, investors finally got some information on the highly-anticipated Disney+ streaming service. It is going live on November 12th, will cost only $6.99 a month (nice), and will be kids and family focused. Wall Street apparently loved the announcement, with Disney shares up over 10% during intraday trading. The beautiful thing about streaming for Disney, at least from an investors perspective, is that they can treat it as a loss leader. The en

Being Biased to the Long-Term

This is the third post in a series I am calling “Investing for the Long Term”. You can read the second post here and the first post here. “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”- Warren Buffett Humans, at least generally, struggle with being patient. I think I speak for most of us when I say two-day shipping and on-demand taxis are now expected, not wanted. Our instant gratification society is conditioning us to demand immediate

How Compound Interest Affects Every Part of Life

“The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself…the more you learn, the more you earn.” – Warren Buffett. This is the second post in a series I am calling “Investing for the Long Term”. You can read the first post here. In my last piece, I mentioned how compound interest (CI) was omnipresent in our lives. I am now going to expound on why I believe this and give some examples to prove my point. Most of us know CI impacts our investments. You put some money in a
