I've got an interest in learning the building blocks of creating an online business. I figured the best way is to accumulate the necessary information in setting up a website and then going from there.
I have no expectations regarding this other than to gain at least a little bit of knowledge on creating said website and marketing.

So, I really like investing in bull put spreads, because I feel like its a pretty low risk, moderate reward play and I've been doing well on them for awhile but I want to expand my horizons outside of AAPL and GOOG weeklies. Do you guys have any stocks that you think would be good for this type of strategy. I usually sell far out of the money puts and buy only a little more out of the money than that
>>1019535 I haven't tried it yet, but also I usually let it go full loss. My dad and I have been basically going halfsies on the plays and we've only lost really a handful of times, though that obviously adds up pretty quickly if you do it wrong enough lol.

How do I get money to start up my idea into a business?
I have this unique idea that can easily make millions if the product is made. Though, I do not have the funds to start up my own business as I am student. I can't get investors as they usually want to see pre-existing sales or some sort of a base first. A loan wouldn't do much for me either as I am not making a enough income to pay them back. Others have said get a job but I'm in school right now and won't land the job I'm going for at least another 2-3 years.

ITT: we talk about coming trends within science and technology.
Post leads within fields you are passionate about, and have a certain up-to-date knowledge. People can research resulting investment opportunities on their own I think.
Personally I am a big believer in the coming hairloss cure. Sounds like such a mundane issue but several companies are making promising and steady progress. Eventually one will crack the problem, and explode in market value over night.

How much money do you faggots even have? Bunch of pseudo-investors on this board with MBAs from the university of American Samoa. I'm a sound engineer and I bet no one on this board has more money than me. >early 20s >not being worth at least $100k USD
Which companies stand to gain the most from the lifting of the US oil export ban? Small-cap players in Eagle Ford? Is the lifting of the ban enough to lessen the threat of bankruptcy for little debt-heavy companies?
>>1019262 "Oil exploration and production companies that are willing to ship overseas will be the largest beneficiaries of the ban's removal. ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) and NuStar Energy LP (NYSE: NS) are slated to complete the loading of the first tanker of freely traded US crude oil on December 31.
The two are not the only ones planning to ramp up exports now that the ban has been lifted, though. Other companies like Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE: EPD) are also planning to sell abroad.

Does anyone here have any experience with covered calls? If so, would you recommend it as an investment strategy?
I am asking this because I understand how options work, but so far, I have only experience with vanilla stock investing, but I am looking at covered calls give me some serious income from the premiums . I know that conventional wisdom states that covered calls are a conservative investment strategy (more so than vanilla stock ownership), and can theoretically give you relatively huge returns with relatively little risk.
However, it still sounds too... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1019242 Covered calls mean selling your upside while leaving your downside intact. This isn't a good position if you are uncertain about the underlying's movements.
Capping your gains for guaranteed income has the same opportunity costs as investing your 401k in bonds instead of stocks while young. Lower returns than just holding the stock itself, unless the stock muddles along without moving much.
Selling calls falls apart if volatility goes up because volatility is a bigger input to options than stocks.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1019256 You left out the most important difference. Stocks don't move up/down in an instant. If you were selling covered calls for stocks in 2018 options, then you would be right. But we are looking at 40 day trades. A stock can do nothing in 40 day and when the call expires worthless, you made money on owning the stock.
This can be done multiple times in a year and only get called away once. Essentially, it is playing the fact that most stocks just aren't super whippy.

Hey /biz/, so I recently got onto a student investment team at my university. I requested the international equity fund and got approved (I'm in a dual degree for economics and finance so my professor thought the macro would be helpful) but as it turns out, what this fund really does is invest in international ETF's and mutual funds. ADR's are sometimes included, but I need to be researching specific areas.
What are some good news/research sources to use when doing my analysis? I have sites and analysts I follow for US equities, but I am pretty clueless... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1019198 This is excactly why uni is worthless and you wont learn a shit. These guys graduate with a piece of paper having never been traded, so with literally zero experience of the real markets. Cant blame them, the professors are just as bad. If they really know what they are doing they wouldnt be teaching kids, they would be top bankers or hedge fund managers.
>>1019207 .... we are doing real trades, my professor just doesn't like investing in single international equities because they're riskier. I can still push if I need to for a specific equity, but he mainly wants me looking at ETF's. I would love to sit back and trade options, which I have done.
what's the best choice for an engineering student with a part time job and no bills and wants to make a buttload of sensible money from investment plans? I have no biz experience unless accounting counts.
how do you deal with having a full time job. Let me explain- i'm working in an office, the job is great. low stress, great money, I like the work.
but now **I don't have any time left!** I just wish there were more hours in the day cause I get home from work and want to do a whole bunch of other stuff too but the job is taking up my whole life.
i can't be the only one who feels this way. what do you guys think about this? do you get used to it after a while? im not planning on quitting or anything but I want to know about how people with full time... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
