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.

But not everyone is as fortunate as I was to have parents who set a good example. Read On…

Are You Prepared for Lower Interest Rates?

by Marc Lichtenfeld

Months ago, The Oxford Club's Bond Strategist Steve McDonald told me he thought the interest rate on the 10-year U.S. Treasury was going to drop below 2.4%. At the time, Treasurys were near 3% and the economy was improving. I thought he was nuts. Well, not only do I owe Steve an apology, I now agree with him. Read On…

How Not to Be Scared by the Market

by Marc Lichtenfeld

I sat there in stunned silence. We were having dinner with our friends, when the husband told us he doesn't invest. "I don't trust the markets," he said. He keeps all of his savings in cash...I can say with 100% certainty he's wrong. Read On…

Buy From Amazon, but Not AMZN

by Marc Lichtenfeld
