For those who hold companies like $V $MA and $WMT — are you watching what’s going on with the Credit Card Competition Act? Pretty much it’s break up the Visa-MA duopoly,which was just introduced to the House. If it does pass — See more
Stock Futures were a hot topic is AM on Twitter based upon China economy performance. As you know (well I say this over on $TWTR ) that I watch internationally just as close as I do the the markets here. Stock Futures kind of are like the movie previews for investors to know what to expect. They usually are seen around early evening hours in the states. When ‘futures’ are down, you could potentiaSee more
While I will talk things #GDP and #recession later, I do want to touch on the earnings we’ve seen with platforms that thrive or have a heavy revenue line tied to ads. The latest have been $SNAP and $META . While they both have other hiccups, one of the things hammering away at their financials is how much they are bringing in from other brands purchasing ad space on the platform. I’ve spoken about hSee more
With Google Q2 Earnings coming up today — There’s a couple of companies that have multiple tickers or share class. Google is one of them. Alphabet is the parent company. $GOOGL - Class A or Common shares. Meaning — voting rights See more
Health is wealth. Well over the last couple of months it appears to be for companies. It’s been a couple of health-base start ups popping up along with acquisitions happening especially with publicly traded companies. Specifically when it comes to #AR #VR — tele-health, etc. A good bit of people are talking about See more
The #ETF market has been runneth over the last 18-24 months. A couple sectors that we see them popping up #crypto , digital payments, space, energy, single stock, metaverse. But I saw this chart earlier and it was interesting. 91% of 660 ETF launched since 2021 haven’t performed well. One major reason is this economy and market volatility, without a doubt. But a lot of investors look for #etf s thatSee more
The #ETF landscape has been shifting and moving since the start of the pandemic. We’ve seen it with Cryptocurrency/Blockchain ETFs and a new type is rolling out in the middle of Bank earnings… talk about wild times. Back in April I shared insight that I’ve been seeing about a “Single-Stock ETF” that could be coming. At that time, it was roughly 21 with a prospectuses (rundown of the historical peSee more
So $TGT was the topic of discussion when it came to performance of their not only their #earnings , but also the pivot of inventory unloading. Retail is going through it due to the shifting from what happened during the pandemic. When news hit of them increasing their dividend by 20%. Sorta gave a confused feel to investors and consumers. In retrospect, this was done to give both confidence in thSee more
So @ the beginning of the year we saw a couple of headlines of companies such as $JNJ splitting some of its LOBs into stand alone companies. I said here ( that this will more than likely become a trend that we could see throughout this year as companies either give fresh wind into their biz model or de-risk because of an uncertain economy. Well this AM $K announced that willSee more
Whoa. The S&P 500 $SPY has officially wiped out all of 2021's gains. As easy as it is to say “don’t be afraid”.. it isn’t while looking at the markets. Another thing I want you to do is look at the holdings separately vs looking at the overall Account Value during times like these. Until you build up your tolerance or appetite to handle the tides of volatile markets — this will help you builSee more
Soooo, I know we are talking about the stock and crypto market being a 🩸 bath. But did you see where $REV is preparing it file Chapter 11 Bankruptcy? The company has more than $3 billion of long-term debt, and has narrowly averted multiple defaults by cutting debt deals with creditors. While the decision is a long way away.. here’s what happens when a stock turns into bankruptcy stock: https://See more
I know a couple of you are saying close the stock market! Yeah, stocks are down. The stock futures were showing the pending sentiments of the CPI report that we got a couple hours ago. As my thoughts confirmed, inflation is @8.6%. The former 40 year high, got knocked by a new one. Here’s how much the cost of things went up: -Groceries +11.9% y/y -->Biggest inc. since 1979 -Chicken +17.4% ->LarSee more

This material is not intended as a recommendation, offer, or solicitation to purchase or sell securities, open a brokerage account, or engage in any investment strategy.

Product offerings and availability vary based on jurisdiction.

Stocks, ETFs, Options, Bonds.

(“Public Investing”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. Additional information about your broker can be found by clicking here.

Certain requirements must be met in order to trade options. Options can be risky and are not suitable for all investors. Options transactions are often complex, and investors can rapidly lose the entire amount of their investment or more in a short period of time. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing in options. Refer to the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before considering any options transaction. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request. Tax considerations with options transactions are unique and investors considering options should consult their tax advisor as to how taxes affect the outcome of each options strategy.

Options Order Flow Rebate.
If you are enrolled in our Options Order Flow Rebate Program, Public Investing will share 50% of our estimated order flow revenue for each completed options trade as a rebate to help reduce your trading costs. The exact rebate will depend on the specifics of each transaction and will be previewed for you prior to submitting each trade. This rebate will be deducted from your cost to place the trade and will be reflected on your trade confirmation. Order flow rebates are not available for non-options transactions.

“Bonds” shall refer to corporate debt securities and U.S. government securities offered on the Public platform through a self-directed brokerage account held at Public Investing and custodied at Apex Clearing. For purposes of this section, Bonds exclude treasury securities held in treasury accounts with Jiko Securities, Inc. as explained under the “ Treasury Accounts” section.

Investments in Bonds are subject to various risks including risks related to interest rates, credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors. The value of Bonds fluctuate and any investments sold prior to maturity may result in gain or loss of principal. In general, when interest rates go up, Bond prices typically drop, and vice versa. Bonds with higher yields or offered by issuers with lower credit ratings generally carry a higher degree of risk. All fixed income securities are subject to price change and availability, and yield is subject to change. Bond ratings, if provided, are third party opinions on the overall bond's credit worthiness at the time the rating is assigned. Ratings are not recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell securities, and they do not address the market value of securities or their suitability for investment purposes.

High-Yield Cash Account.
A High-Yield Cash Account is a secondary brokerage account with Public Investing. Funds in your High-Yield Cash Account are automatically deposited into partner banks (“Partner Banks”), where that cash earns interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. See here for a list of current Partner Banks. Your Annual Percentage Yield is variable and may change at the discretion of the Partner Banks or Public Investing. Apex Clearing and Public Investing receive administrative fees for operating this program, which reduce the amount of interest paid on swept cash. Neither Public Investing nor any of its affiliates is a bank. Learn more.

Alternative Assets.
Brokerage services for alternative assets available on Public are offered by Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”), member of FINRA & SIPC. “Alternative assets,” as the term is used at Public, are equity securities that have been issued pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) (“Regulation A”). This content is not investment advice. These investments are speculative, involve substantial risks (including illiquidity and loss of principal), and are not FDIC or SIPC insured. Alternative Assets purchased on the Public platform are not held in a Public Investing brokerage account and are self-custodied by the purchaser. The issuers of these securities may be an affiliate of Public Investing, and Public Investing (or an affiliate) may earn fees when you purchase or sell Alternative Assets. For more information on risks and conflicts of interest, see these disclosures. An affiliate of Public may be “testing the waters” and considering making an offering of securities under Tier 2 of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until an offering statement filed with the SEC has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC or as stated in the offering materials relating to an investment opportunity, as applicable. An indication of interest to purchase securities involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Cryptocurrency trading, execution, and custody services are provided by Bakkt Crypto Solutions, LLC (NMLS ID 1828849) (“Bakkt”). Cryptocurrency is highly speculative, involves a high degree of risk, and has the potential for loss of the entire amount of an investment. Cryptocurrencies offered by Bakkt are not securities and are not FDIC insured or protected by SIPC. Your cryptocurrency assets are held in your Bakkt account. Bakkt is a licensed virtual currency business by the New York State Department of Financial Services and a licensed money transmitter, but is not a registered broker-dealer or a FINRA member. Your Bakkt Crypto account is separate from your brokerage account with Public Investing, which holds US-listed stocks and ETFs. Please review the Risk Disclosures before trading.

Treasury Accounts.
Investing services in treasury accounts offering 6 month US Treasury Bills on the Public platform are through Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information.

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. Although T-bills are considered safer than many other financial instruments, you could lose all or a part of your investment. 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.
