Consumer Side Opinion
Would I buy stock in JPM?Personally, I would not buy JPM because the company is beginning to shy away from the stock market, and I feel it will hurt the value of their stock. I'd consider buying JPM in the future because I want to see what happens to the value after the company changes are steady.
What has my profit/loss been for the stock game so far?
So far, I am down about 5.6%. I've lost over $5,000, but I'm working my way to the top ;)
What have a learned about investing?
I've learned that investing in companies has a high risk factor because the market can change very quickly and drastically. There is no guarantee that one would make money in the stock market. In order to make sufficient money in a relative period of time, one would need to invest a significant amount of money into a company, not knowing what might happen to the stock. Buying and selling stock also takes a lot of strategy. Without buying when the stock is low and selling when its high, a trader will not make money. Investing can be a money-maker or a money-taker.
