  1. Waste management. Only going to get bigger as more packaging waste is created with popularity of online purchasing

    Where was this video before I got stuck in some mining stocks

  2. Great videos. I have never invested in the stock market, but as a beginner I'm doing research to start investing. I want to start small as possible. want to invest for the short term (if I'm saying it right.) I herd that I can invest were I can earn a payout (money) monthly, bimontihly or quarterly. Very interested in that. Can you offer any guidance on that. Thanks and keep up the good work.

  3. Hm….can these stocks go in a Roth Ira account on Vanguard in addition to some of vangaurds' index funds or can I only invest in vanguard in a vanguard account? Btw, thanks again for another informative video.

  4. I definitely made a mistake I bought penny stock from a friend promising me good return
    It would ha e been the same if I’d have torn those bills up
    It did yes make me not want to invest
    But I’m seeing it differently now as I’m getting ready to invest

  7. plz tell me some more safe companies names whom ratio is going high yearly.i am very beginner in stock market and i want to invest for long term give me 5-10 names please. hope u reply sir.

  8. Quick question. I am new to studying stocks and I have been on binge with your channel these last few days. I was under the impression that medicine is something great to invest in. Companies like Phizer should be a stable company right? Usually they have many patients that protect new medicines, and plus people still get sick and they need the drugs, right? So why did you say to avoid pharmaceutical companies? Thanks

  9. Is it smart to invest, say, $1000 on Apple then wait a year? Will you gain money from that investment since Apple is always growing? That's what I plan on doing during college since I'll be so busy? Thanks!
