  1. Thanks for watching guys? Who’s early in the comments? Let me know! I’ll try to get back to you 🙂

    1. Great video and always inspiring Brandon! p.s. my name’s Brandon too lol and we’re both value investors!

    2. The question is when is the next opportunity? How do you know when to swing hard? Is it a fastball down the middle, or am I swinging at a hard breaking slider?

  2. Warren Buffett 7 Rules Investors must follow:
    1. Don’t hold a stock for 10 minutes unless you’re willing to hold it for 10 years.
    2. Don’t loses money.
    3. Always buy below intrinsic value.
    4. Stick to businesses you understand.
    5. Don’t buy cigar butts
    6. Be greedy when others are fearful, and fearful when others are greedy.
    7. Seize the golden opportunities.

  3. Beautiful and well explained. The US stock and real estate market is something everybody should exploit. There’s a lot of potential and I am seriously considering going into one of them. I have been confused on the better option and where and how to go about this. It’s becoming too much of an opportunity to pass on.

    1. Why not both? You should always remember to diversify your investments given the state of the US economy. Avoid putting all of your eggs in one basket. I have worked in real estate for as long as I can remember, and late last year, using only stocks, I earned my first million dollars (I hired a professional because I also don’t live in the United States). In addition, I try out a few other things. It’s hard to believe that I first resisted exploring new options.

    2. @Hayden Chen …Very sound and realistic. I too have been into both for sometime now and though I won’t say I have lost a fortune, I have squandered quite a lot… You mentioned using
      pros, if its not a problem. do you mind telling who you used or recommending a good one? I could definitely use the help of one right now… I look forward to you

    3. @Hunter Cole Yeah, I used one but that’s cos I’m not so knowledgeable in the field and I battle with time constraints. Not really sure I’m permitted to go into details here, but mine is Abraham Adam Keith, and you could possibly find more through a quick search.

    4. @Hayden Chen Followed this thread outta curiosity and boom, I know this funny man. Once attended a fundraiser he was also in attendance here in Vancouver,, serious looking man with with a funny accent,, He’s in the States though, I doubt he works with non residents,,,

  4. Taking early notes from Warren as to the importance of sound asset diversification and risk management It can’t be overstated. They can help you navigate through the challenges of investing. Judging by this i’m still in search for suggestions as to a way to improve my portfolio of $580k

    1. Each strategy carries its own set of pros and cons and picking the right one depends on your specific financial goals, but in order to execute such effective decisions, you must be a skilled practitioner.

    2. @Dylan Shultz Very true. Despite having no prior investing knowledge, I started investing before the pandemic and pulled in a profit of approximately $950k that same year. In reality, all I was doing was getting professional advice

    3. @Dan Leahfort How can I participate in this? I sincerely aspire to establish a secure financial future and am eager to participate. Who is the driving force behind your success.

    4. There are a lot of independent advisors you might look into. But i work with *Heather Ann Christensen* , and she is excellent. You could proceed with her if she satisfies your discretion. I endorse her

    5. @Dan Leahfort Thanks for sharing, I just looked her up on the web and I would say she really has an impressive background in investing. I will write her an e-mail shortly

  5. Once upon a time, I was an eager investor. With high hopes and dreams, I diligently built my investment portfolio over the years. But as the tides of the market turned against me, my once-promising investments began to crumble. Stock prices plummeted, bonds defaulted, and my hopes faded away. With each passing day, my portfolio dwindled, mirroring the sinking feeling in my heart. I watched helplessly as my hard-earned savings vanished, leaving behind a lingering sadness and a stark reminder of the unpredictability of the financial world. I’m here again because I want to get back on track.I need ideas to get on on a recovery process.

    1. Losses can provide valuable lessons and insights into the intricacies of the financial market. They can highlight areas where improvements can be made in investment strategies, risk management, or research. By reflecting on the losses and learning from mistakes, one can enhance their knowledge and skills, which can contribute to future success. I don;t have much to give but my thoughts are with you.

    2. The pathway to substantial returns doesn’t solely rely on stocks with significant movements. Instead, it revolves around effectively managing risk relative to reward. By appropriately sizing your positions and capitalizing on your advantage repeatedly, you can progressively work towards achieving your financial goals. This principle applies across various investment approaches, whether it be long-term investing or day trading.

    3. Despite utilizing the correct strategies and possessing the right assets, there can still be variations in the investment returns among different investors. It is important to acknowledge that experience plays a crucial role in investment success. Personally, I realized the significance of this and sought the guidance of a market analyst, which enabled me to substantially grow my account to nearly a million. I strategically withdrew my profits just before the market correction, and now I am taking advantage of the buying opportunities once again.

    4. It helps to invest in companies whose products or services are interesting to you and in which you can see potential value. Or else low risk boring stocks and ETFs, whose outputs are necessary inputs in other supply chains. Ex: apple; look into the components which apple outsources. In this way you capture diversification of the supply chain in addition to the primary stock.

    5. Interesting Rogers. I’ve actually been looking into advisors lately, the news I’ve been seeing in the market hasn’t been so encouraging. who’s the person guiding you?

  6. I think the stock market will go sideways or down just slightly over the next 6 months. I’m hopeful there won’t be anymore interest rate increases. The restart of student loan payments should be more than enough to get inflation in check. Personally, I think student loan payments should have resumed a year and a half ago. We probably could have avoided a lot of the inflation that has occurred over that time. It may have even been “transient” inflation as many were calling it back then. Early/mid 2024, interest rates should start dropping and the stock market will head to the moon. when news gets bearish start buying. “Keep it simple simple” that bear/ correction was the best thing that happened me.

    1. Simple step-by-step process, excellent communication and response times. The service was extremely streamlined and friendly throughout. Would recommend them to anyone give him a reply

  7. As a person who will get into investing these days I would like to give you my gratitude for making videos of this kind. They really do help a lot.

  8. Working with a financial professional can actually help you prepare for life financial struggles. I’m glad I was able to call my coach Marcia Ann Bice since I was actively cashing out from my portfolio and finally made over 370k just in the first quarter while everyone else was crying about the downturn. early this year……

    1. It amazes me greatly the way I move from an average lifestyle to earning over 63k per month, utter shock is the word. I have understood <

    2. I appreciate the advise. Finding your coach online was a simple process. Before we planned our phone call, I checked her up online. Based on her online resume, she appears to be knowledgeable…..

    3. I’ve been struggling with finances for months after my divorce, and I just discovered her exceptional resume when I Googled her name. I consider myself lucky today

    4. I discovered MARCIA ANN BICE as my consultant through a BBC interview where she was featured. I reached out to her afterward, and she has been providing me with entry and exit points on the securities I focus on. You can look her up online, I follow her trade pattern

  9. To obtain financial freedom, one needs to be a business owner, an investor, or both, generating passive income, particularly on a monthly basis….Thanks so much Luciana cruz

  10. The market’s direction can swiftly change, with indexes frequently transitioning from a bear market to a bull market precisely when the news is most negative and investor sentiment reaches its lowest point

    1. Investors should exercise prudence when it comes to their exposure, especially during periods of inflation, and be suspicious of new purchases. Such large yields in current recession are only possible with the help of a competent or trustworthy counsel.

    2. I had a terrific run in my first year in the financial market, so I believed I had a handle on it. However, things changed during the epidemic, and I wanted to diversify into safe assets, so I engaged a coach, who designed a structure that corresponded to my annual objective of $400k.

    3. that’s impressive!, I could really use the expertise of this advisors , my portfolio has been down bad….who’s the person guiding you.

    4. You can do your research and be on the lookout for one with intelligent strategies who’ll help your portfolio maintain an unwavering and a progressive growth. Carol Pasol Lewis is my FA. She has the Flexibility & Expertise to Meet Your Needs. Verify her yourself

    5. She gives off the impression of being a true expert in her field. In order to find out more about her credentials, academic history, and job, I searched for her online and discovered her website, which I browsed and went through. She has a fiduciary obligation to look out for my interests. I scheduled a time to utilize her services.

  11. Thank you for sharing your thoughtful content… for
    putting it out there with the passion that many of us need and strive for. I’m starting to listen to you
    almost every morning. Your voice and words are calming, clarifying, uplifting and motivating.
    It feels real and genuine. I am grateful to have your channel as a source for having a better relationship with myself and the world around me?

    1. The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment, You create a good future by creating a good present. The key to financial freedom and great wealth is a person’s ability to convert earned income into passive income to build generational wealth ,this trick has never failed.

    2. Some people are really ignorant of the profitability in Trading. and that has been the major issues limiting their investment?

    3. The wisest thing that should be on everyone’s mind currently should be to trading in different streams of income that doesn’t depend on government, especially with the current economic crises around the world?

  12. As a new investor, it’s important to remember that investing and trading require more than just technical analysis skills. Discipline and emotional maturity play a significant role in achieving success. It’s wise to keep in mind the adage of “time in the market vs. timing the market,” as this mentality can help you weather market volatility. With insights of Luciana cruz and my commitment to learning and growth, I’ve been increasing my earnings in just a few months. Keep up the good work!acac

    1. I was skeptical at first until I decided to try. It’s huge returns is awesome! I can’t say much.

    2. I’m surprised you know her too, I’ve been making a lot of profits investing with her for a few months now.

  13. Munger and Buffett have both achieved an incredible feat with Berkshire. They’ve turned thousands to billions, and have made a lot of people wealthy in the process. I really saw the potential of the stock market by reading Berkshire’s annual letters. I recently sold my $674k apartment in the Bel Air area and I’m hoping to throw it into the stock market. I just don’t want to lose everything.

    1. Most newbies either do not understand the power of compound interest, or are just impatient. For the average Joe, however, I think it is just best to invest in the S&P 500, and just wait, which is reliable, albeit extremely long– lots of years. Or just use a professional analyst and speed up wealth creation. Most people underestimate the power of the latter.

    2. @Roy King I stopped listening and taking financial advise from these YouTubers, because at the end of the day, I end up with a bunch of confusing stocks without knowing when to take profit, In reality, all I needed was professional advice.

    3. @Margaritas Bunny How can I participate in this? I sincerely aspire to establish a secure financial future and am eager to participate. Who is the driving force behind your success?

    4. @Helena Bonham I’m a contractor, and my job doesn’t permit me the time to properly analyze my holdings/evaluate stocks myself, so I’ve had a fiduciary “Elizabeth Pan Holt ” actively restructuring my portfolio for the past 7 years now to match the present market condition and that’s how I’ve been able to stay afloat, knowing when to buy and sell…maybe you should do the same.

    5. @Margaritas Bunny Thanks for sharing, I just looked her up on the web and I would say she really has an impressive background in investing. I will write her an e-mail shortly scheduling a call.

  14. The stock market rally run is gone, but I’m not sure if equities will swiftly recover, keep falling or swing in a narrow range for a few weeks, or if things will quickly get worse. I’m under pressure to increase my $450k reserve.

    1. The market has gone berserk! regardless of experience level, everyone needs a sort of coach at some point to thrive forward.

    2. A lot of folks downplay the role of a professional until being burnt by their own emotions. I remember couple summers back, after my lengthy divorce, I needed a good boost to help my business stay afloat, hence I researched for licensed professional and came across someone of due diligence, helped a lot to grow my reserve notwithstanding inflation, from $275k to approx. $850k so far.

    3. @Dr Laszlo Lee I’ve been down a ton, I’m only holding on so I can recoup, I really need help, who is this professional that guides you?

    4. @Melissa B Wehner Can’t divulge much, it’s only right you do your due diligence. I’m been guided by “Susan Bauer Normansell” and most likely, the internet is where to find her deets.

    5. ​@Dr Laszlo Lee Thank you for this tip. It was easy to find your coach. Did my due diligence on her before scheduling a phone call with her. She seems proficient considering her résumé.

  15. Thank you for providing such sincere and informative guidance. I like that you said to set a goal and plan this year by reading a book or an annual report, for example!

  16. I’m not even kidding when I say that the market crash and high inflation have me really stressed out and worried about retirement. I’ve been in the red for a while now and although people say these crisis has it perks, I’m losing my mind but I get it, Investing is a long-term game, so I try to focus on the long term.

    1. I cannot focus on the long run when I should be retiring in 5 years, you see l’ve got good companies in my portfolio and a good amount invested, but my profit has been stalling, does it mean this recession/ unstable market doesn’t provide any calculated risk opportunities to make profit?

    2. There are a lot of strategies to make tongue wetting profit especially in a down market, but such sophisticated trades can only be carried out by proper market experts

    3. This is the problem! Most times people with little or no knowledge of the stock market try investing by themselves. It once happened to me, then I learned my lesson and contacted a US-based finance consultant by name Olivia Maria Lucas and everything changed. In in the first quarter of this year i made $370k and counting.

    4. Thanks for sharing, I just looked her up online and I would say she really does have an impressive background on investing

  17. My spouse and I are diversifying our long-term investment portfolio by adding various stocks and ETFs. We’ve allocated $220k to begin with, focusing on inflation-indexed bonds and companies with strong cash flows. I think the current market presents a good opportunity for long-term gains, but I’m also interested in learning ways to make short-term profits.

    1. While the current market offers short-term profit potential, it’s crucial to note that executing such a strategy requires expertise and skill.

    2. Having an advis0r is the smartest approach in today’s market, especially for those nearing retirement. I personally gained over $270K during this market downturn, which highlighted that there’s valuable insight the average individual may not be aware of.

  18. In my opinion, the most popular investment portfolio strategies include diversification, where you spread investments across different asset classes to manage risk. Another is the growth strategy, focused on capital appreciation through high-risk, high-reward assets. Income-oriented strategies target regular income from dividend stocks or bonds. Finally, there’s the value strategy, seeking undervalued assets for potential long-term gains.

    1. According to Warren Buffett, dividends are less valuable for growing businesses and more suitable for established ones. Investing in companies that offer dividends might be seen as parking capital for steady returns, especially for those relying on portfolio income. This approach resembles bond investing, serving as a means of generating consistent earnings.

    2. I agree. Based on personal experience working with an investment advlsor, I currently have $985k in a well-diversified portfollo that has experienced exponential growth. It’s not only about having money to invest in st0cks, but you also need to be knowledgeable, persistent, and have strong hands to back it up.

    3. @josephbush How can I participate in this? I sincerely aspire to establish a secure financlal future and am eager to participate. Who is the driving force behind your success?

    4. @aureliobjm Well there are a lot of independent advisors you might look into. But i only work with ‘Heather Lee Larioni’ and I have been working together for nearly four years, and she is excellent. You could proceed with her if she satisfies your discretion. I endorse her.

    5. @josephbush I just googled her and I’m really impressed with her credentials; I reached out to her since I need all the assistance I can get. I just scheduled a caII. Thanks for sharing man.

  19. l Lost a fortune lnvesting in emerging companies… How are other people in the same market raking in over $200k gains with months, I’m really just confused at this point.

    1. Yes, a good number of folks are raking in huge 6 figure gains in this downtrend, but such strategies are mostly successfully executed by folks with in depth market knowledge

    2. Having an lnvestment advser is the best way to go about the market right now, especially for near-retirees, I’ve been in touch with a coach for a year now mostly because I lack the depth knowledge and mental fortitude to deal with these recurring market conditions, I nettd over $320K in profits so far, Its clear there’s more to the market that we avg joes don’t know that Investment advisors know.

    3. How can I participate in this? I sincerely aspire to establish a secure financlal future and am eager to participate. Who is the driving force behind your success?

    4. There are a lot of independent advisors you might look into. But i work with Viviana Marisa Coelho and I have been working together for nearly four years, and she is excellent. You could proceed with her if she satisfies your discretion. I endorse her.

    5. I just googled her and I’m really impressed with her credentials; I reached out to her since I need all the assistance I can get. I just scheduled a caII.
