Don’t leave your success up to luck…
Hey there…it’s me, Felix, your personal Ace of Investing.
We’re waking up to a whole new week, and this week is full of something exciting – IPOs. Here’s everything you need to know about what’s on the calendar…
If you’re ready to up your ante, keep reading…
Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) are exciting. They give you the chance to get in on the ground floor and buy stock for prices that will likely never be seen again if the stock takes off and the company is successful. Just imagine having put a few thousand on Apple’s IPO, Tesla’s or even Amazon’s. Yeah, you’d be pretty rich right now. So IPOs can be a lucrative long term investment if you buy the right ones. In the case of buying Apple, Amazon, or Tesla’s IPO, it’s almost like buying a cheap scratcher for a buck or two, holding it for 10-15 years and suddenly it’s a Powerball ticket worth a million or more. Pretty exciting stuff, huh?
This week the market is offering several opportunities to buy into some promising IPOs. It’s going to be a busy week as companies like Frontier Airlines, Coursera, Compass, and more are all officially going public this week. But which IPOs are the best bet? Frontier Airlines certainly looks like a promising option as airline travel begins to bounce back since virus cases continue to drop. Frontier had a pretty solid year in regards to company financials and the company has commitments to increase and improve its airline fleet by 2028, leaving tons of room for growth for this airline. Frontier plans to offer shares from anywhere between $19-$21 initially. Now might be the time to snatch up a few shares if you’re looking for an airline stock that will take flight on an upward trend over time. If you buy now and hold for years to come, this could be your cheap lottery scratch off turns into a high dollar lottery ticket moment.
There are a lot of other IPOs you’ll want to track and be aware of this week as well. What’s the outlook for Coursera and Compass, and what other IPO opportunities will be available to you?

With most investors focused on big tech, a frenzy is quietly erupting in one tiny sector.

It’s not everyday that top Wall Street analysts agree on stocks being long-term money makers, so much so that they signal an all in on the investments. But that’s exactly what’s happening right now on Wall Street. So that means it’s time to listen up if you want your portfolio to benefit. Which stocks have analysts so excited all of a sudden?
TIMING THE BOTTOM
There are three stocks that have experienced some success lately, but that success hasn’t come without some wild dips here and there as well. So in other words, these stocks have been extremely volatile. I know, much like the market, recently. But if that isn’t enough, the future outlook for these stocks doesn’t really look too hot long term, either. All three of them run the risk of hitting rock bottom as many analysts are warning investors to steer clear of them, at least for now. Which three stocks should you avoid and could they actually hit $0 per share?
LET’S ADDRESS THAT MINDSET
This is the key to successful investing
“All you need for a lifetime of successful investing is a few big winners, and the pluses from those will overwhelm the minuses from the stocks that don’t work out.”
— Peter Lynch
We’ve talked about how investing ebbs and flows. And I am sure you have heard of the “you win some, you lose some” mentality. This Peter Lynch quote helps remind you that while the market rises and falls and there is risk associated with every investment, over time you should end up with a nice return on your investments overall. This is why it’s important to remain calm if an investment isn’t doing as well as you’d like. Or if you made a bad investment or two and ended up losing money. If you have a diversified portfolio, the chances of all of your investments tanking at the same time are pretty slim.
So while one investment could cost you a few hundred bucks because it didn’t turn out like you hoped, another investment could earn you thousands, and even hundreds of thousands, over time. Sure, you may lose some, but as long as the wins are more than the losses, it’s all part of the game. So keep your head up, diversify that portfolio, and keep putting money in the market. The losses will seem like minor speed bumps on the way to long term financial security.
BUY & HOLD OPPORTUNITY
You know that buying and holding stocks is one of my favorite strategies. It’s a methodical and tried and true way to build wealth over time. But it can be difficult to know which stocks are best to buy and hold over time because let’s be honest, not all stocks fit the bill (I’m looking at you, AMC and Sundial). Anyway, there are three stocks that have disrupted the market lately in a good way, and you’ll probably want to add them to your hand for the long haul. Which stocks are they and just how bright is their future projected to be?
Friday’s market was interesting to say the least. In addition to the volatility, there were some mysterious block trades that occurred as well. So what do we know about these trades? Was it a one-time event, or are we in store for more this week?
GAINING WEALTH WITHOUT THE EXTRA MISERY
And it’s a lot easier than you think.
Oftentimes when there is advice about retiring rich, it comes with some pretty strict guidelines for changing your lifestyle drastically to make the numbers work. And while that advice can and does help people retire rich, it can lead to a difficult, and even miserable, 20-30 years while waiting to retire.
But there are a few tips that can help you retire rich, without making yourself miserable along the way.
One of the easiest ways to retire rich is to start investing early. It’s important to start as early as you can – in college or even high school, if possible. Even if you can’t put a lot of money into the market and other investments, every little bit helps, especially when you’re young. Starting with something early is better than starting with nothing later on in life. Investing early also helps your portfolio grow so much more, as it has many more years to grow than the average investor’s portfolio does. It’s like being in a long, drawn-out, high-stakes poker game. Throwing chips in round after round as players refuse to fold allows the pot to grow exponentially. And when someone finally does win and cashes in on the action, they’re left with a fat reward. So keep throwing into your investing pot as early as you can and you’ll be shocked how much it grows over time.
If you missed the boat on the investing early thing, it’s ok. There are a few other things you can do to catch up, retire rich, and not make your life miserable. Remember, it’s never too late to invest. So, what can you do to make sure you’re retiring with all the money you’ll ever need?
