Whether You Like It Or Not, You Are Tied to the Stock Market!







You’re Connected to Wall Street!

I understand that a LOT of people are turned off by Wall Street, and the stock market is usually looked down upon as a symbol of greed. But…

We are all connected to it in some way, whether we like it or not. So, we might as well interact with it, no?

You, or someone you know, might have a 401K as a means to build towards retirement. 401Ks could have mutual funds, which is still a portfolio of stocks.

Even your regular savings account is used by your bank to buy and sell shares of stocks in the tune of millions of shares at a time.

The companies you interact with on a daily basis. Starbucks comes to mind. A publicly traded company that have stocks.

Whether you like it or not, the United States is a capitalist system that thrives on ownership of stocks in a company.

I guess my point is, we are so interconnected with the stock market that even if you don’t care for it, you are affected by it, and as a consumer, you affect the stock market!

And Now, For Some Trending Stocks

Raytheon Company (RTN)

Of all the defense stocks out there, RTN (and also NOC) seems to be holding up pretty well despite the downtrend since late January 2018.

Okta Inc (OKTA)

Okta is another one that I’m watching closely. I was in and out of the stock last month for a profit, but still looking to get back in again, possibly for a longer term.
