Then there are stocks. And let me tell you, there are more stocks out there to invest in than Carter has liver pills. Just check with the NYSE to see how many stocks are actively being traded. Stocks are much riskier than bonds. A stock can sell for a share one day and drop down to a share the next day. Imagine investing in 1000 shares. You would have lost ,000 in just one day. Conversely stocks can give you a big windfall literally overnight. The key to stock investing is to get a good broker who knows the market. And don’t worry, he WILL have your best interests in mind because he wants to make money too, as he gets a percentage of any gain you make on the stocks you invest in.
Let’s take a stock investing 101 example here. Let’s say that I would like to buy a stock because I think it may increase in value. However, I’m a little unsure and don’t exactly want to take the chance that it won’t rise. Instead, I can buy a call option for about the current market price and wait to see if it does rise. If it does, I am know granted the option to buy the stock for the lower price. I then have the ability to hold on to my stock or sell it for a profit (minus commissions, taxes, and the cost of the option).
Review the prospectus for information on the fees and expenses charged by the funds. Fees and charges are particularly important in a bond fund, since high expenses could significantly reduce the return on your investment.

As an investor and flipper of foreclosed property do you want to know what I say? I say let them talk. Let all the media spread misery and fear all across the US and beyond.
First of all tax liens have sort of a government guarantee. I am purposely saying “sort of” for a reason. It’s because if you end up been deeded to a property that is worthless because you haven’t done your own research then you can end up losing your investment. This is one of the minor pitfalls of investing in tax liens however, many consider tax liens to be safer than stocks.
As A wholesaler you position is easy! Find a particular type of property that buyers/investors are looking for. Simple right? Why yes, yes it is.. Once located you just pass the new found deal onto your buyer/investor. Basically all you are doing is acting as the middle man or a bird dog (plus a few steps) type. With this type of investing you can make upwards of 10k from each and every deal you do, depending on the type of deal you uncover. With nothing more than time invested in these deals how can you go wrong!!!!
