Marc's Investment Beginnings

What was the first dollar you ever earned?

Shoveling snow when I was 9.

What's been the most satisfying dollar (or dollars) you've ever earned?

It's a tie. There was the $300 I made buying my first stock, when I was 22 – I bought 50 shares of Harley Davidson at $18 and sold it a short time later at $24. I thought this stock market stuff was going to be easy. The other one was being paid by Don King to ring announce one of his shows.

What's your favorite way to make money?

Finding stocks that Wall Street has not yet discovered or misunderstands is one of my favorites.

What's the best investment advice you've given or ever heard?

Zig when others zag.

There have been quite a few hot IPOs this year. Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) and GoPro (Nasdaq: GPRO) to name just a couple. Both of which are up from the price where they came public, handing new shareholders big gains. But the real money was made before these companies even went public. Read On…

Be Right When Everyone Else Is Wrong

by Marc Lichtenfeld

"Stocks are going to head higher. There is nothing out there to push them lower." "Stocks will crash and continue lower for the next several years."
