  1. Hey Ryan, this is a great video for beginner investors like myself. I'm trying to do a lot of research and reading company's annual reports and basically understanding the businesses that I would like to put my money on. But I do have a few questions I hope you can answer.

    1. Can you elaborate on parameters guarding value of a stock? Is a value of a stock based on your own qualitative analysis and belief in that stock? Or are there measurable, quantitative parameters that we should be looking at and go, hey, that's a stock of great value.

    2. How do you know if a stock is overpriced? In order words, when the cost of a stock is higher than that of value?

  2. Hey ryan, good points of advice. Love the content,BTW I was hoping if you could elaborate the 15th point a bit further. Maybe through a short video. Thanks in advance, waiting for the next vid

  3. Can you do a video explaining how you calculate the value of a stock? Like where do you get the information, what information you use and how do you think about it and what calculations you do with it and determine what price you’re willing to pay for it.

  4. Key principles: Buy undervalued companies with low debt and consistently increasing earnings. That is the key idea when it comes to equity investing, but for the average guy it's hard to reach such quantitative conclusions and to be diversified .For anyone under 25 with little finance knowledge at present it would be best to just go with 2-3 ETFs one covering emerging Markets equities , one covering the SandP500low cap stocks and put the remaining 10% in a corporate bond ETF. And just dollar cost average bimonthly until retirement, if anyone needs more advice drop a message

  5. Ryan, I have been watching your videos and as a beginning young investor I have learned more in 20 videos then a life time about stocks, bonds, mutal/index funds. My question to you is I am in the saving stage. No debt except a house in CA . The market is a little overwhelming at the moment and I am unsure where to buy. My gut tells me wait for lower prices to get the value I am looking for, but it sounds like jumping into a index fund for the long term is pretty safe investment.

    Where do you make your trades?
    Should I save and wait for the next recession and keep my cash liquid not tied up in real estate?

    I know these are general questions and slightly vague, but CA real estate is insanely priced at the moment.

    Keep it up strong, support for life

  6. Can you please do a video on why beginners should stay away from penny stocks or why penny stocks are garbage companies to invest in 99% of the time. I see way too many new people get into investing and think because they don't have too much money that they need to get cheap penny stocks because they think having a lot of shares will equal higher profits. Lot of new people get burnt on penny stocks starting off and then never try to invest again.

  7. Hey Ryan do you think you might do a video on the ethereum mining causing Gpu prices to triple? Idk if it's anything to do with your channel. Cause It's like bitcoin.
