#MacroEconomics #InvestopediaCliffNotes Do we have any econ majors here on Public? Did they teach you how to invest in those classes? I'm super curious because I did engineering and pre-med and essentially had zero exposure to the stock market. The Breakdown: - Macroeconomics is the big picture study of the economy as a whole and primarily focuses on national output, unemployment, and inflation -See more
#EarningsCall #InvestopediaCliffNotes I've read a few earnings call transcripts, but as I will cover later on, this can be time intensive. If you are busy with your day job and investing on the side, just remember there is nothing wrong with just trying to track the overall market w/ low expense ETFs. "Being the market" isn't so bad. Doing proper due diligence requires time/energy cost and emotionalSee more
#CorporateGovernance #InvestopediaCliffNotes Has anyone ever read a company's corprate governance before? I personally have never read one in detail before investing, but I was able to find FIGS no problem on their website, so this was easier than finding a business model. The Breakdown: - "The basic principles of corporate governance are accountability, transparency, fairness, and responsibility."See more
#BusinessModel #InvestopediaCliffNotes Happy Monday! Today, I talk about a Business Model and this is probably one of my favorite ways to evaluate a company when deciding whether or not I want to invest in a company. If the why and how doesn't make sense, I don't want to put my money into it ... this is especially true of small cap and growth stocks where they might not yet be profitable. The BreakSee more
#CashFlow #InvestopediaCliffNotes Happy Friday! Can't believe it is already October ... today we are going to talk about a company's Cash Flow, but don't forget to do a little self reflection. Earlier this week I encouraged people to think about budget. Now today, I want people to think about ways they can grow their cash flow as well. Have you considered a side hustle that monetizes something you aSee more
#IncomeStatement #InvestopediaCliffNotes So this is just a fancy way of saying that you are reading a company's personal budget. It is probably around time that I remind people that it is important to have a proper budget and emergency fund before throwing money into the market. What you do before getting the market has a significant impact on how you will perform in the market. You don't want the uSee more
#BalanceSheet #InvestopediaCliffNotes So to be completely honest investigating and making sense of a balance sheet is a lot of work. If I did this much investigation for every single dollar that I invested ... well I wouldn't invest that much or literally would be invested in 5 companies max. This is one more reason why there is literally no shame in just dollar cost averaging a few ETFs such as theSee more
#QuantitativeAnalysis #InvestopediaCliffNotes So digging deeper into Fundamental Analysis for the next two weeks. Fundamental Analysis can be further subcategorized into quantitative or qualitative analysis. Today we will talk about quantitative and be sure to stop back the same time tomorrow morning for qualitative anlaysis. The Breakdown: - "Quantitative – 'related to information that can be showSee more

#CrossOver #InvestopediaCliffNotes All I want is to be able to spot a crossover, make some money, and do a little Steph Curry shimmy! I think it is so great to see atheletes get paid for their likeness and to see athletes on here that are trying to build financial literacy is good to see - 👀 @amobisays . Because quotes like this hurt me to see "Burke says he felt Michigan could have helped him structSee more
#Breakout #InvestopediaCliffNotes Hope everyone is enjoying this series. Just a reminder that my #StockMarketChallenge for this month concludes on Thursday and I will Venmo the winner $100 just like I did for July and August. I will be running it back for October so don't worry if you are just finding out about it. Check out my YouTube for more details. The Breakdown: - "A breakout refers to when thSee more
#Correction #InvestopediaCliffNotes "We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful." - Warren Buffett The Breakdown: - "In investing, a correction is a decline of 10% or more in the price of a security from its most recent peak." - Investopedia - A correction can last for days, weeks, months, or years; however, generally lasts 3-4 months - CorrSee more

U.S. Treasuries (“T-Bill“) investing services on the Public Platform are offered by Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information. When you enable T-Bill investing on the Public platform, you open a separate brokerage account with JSI (the “Treasury Account“).

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.

Banking services and bank accounts are offered by Jiko Bank, a division of Mid-Central National Bank, Member FDIC.
