I love talking stocks and funds and other investments. My first purchase was proctor and gamble when it really sunk back when I was 20 or so. It was a shot in the dark for me as I knew nothing about stocks at the time. I still have it, it has more than doubled and split since I got it.
They say amateurs like myself shouldn't do individual stocks. They suggest mutual funds as individual stocks expose yourself to much more risk. I have made much more than I lost. I suppose people lie about that but I'm being honest.
In one stock I lost one thousand dollars which is everthing I put into it. The frickin company just went into the air.
My mutual funds have also been doing great, the past couple years they have been doing eight to 12 percent except my biotech which at one point was making 60 percent. But you should see it now, frickin thing tanked
Anyway I'm not trying to brag but I'd love ❤️ to stocks with anyone
