The Stock Market & Mate Selection
Let’s look at purchasing stocks and compare it to mate choice, shall we?
- Read as much as you can about the subject, be it the stock market, publicly traded companies, or finance. Websites are abound with information. The more you read, the more you will know what to look for in a company. Man or woman should be learning as much about the opposite sex as they can. Roissy, Spearhead, Girl Game are sample sites to choose from.
- Think of products you like or companies that provide quality or popular services. Look for attributes in a mate that are of interest to you – start with what you definitively know (e.g. church boys versus bar boys).
- Research the parent company that manufactures the product or service. Get to know your love interest by looking at who their friends and family are. For example, meeting the parents: sometimes it’s amusing or scary, depending on how you look at it. (Watch the two vids – you’ll get it.)
- Look at the company’s financial statements. It takes lots of time to learn how to analyze these properly, but you should definitely have looked at them before investing in a company. It’s very important to know how the potential mate handles their finances – know what questions to ask.
- Decide how much money you are willing to risk. Imagine you were to lose all the money you invested, how much would you put in? Analyze how much you’re willing to put into this relationship, what would happen if you over-invested with this particular mate? What are the risks?
- Enter an order for a certain number of shares after you have followed the stock for a couple weeks to see where it is. Ease into the relationship slowly, test it.
- Learn how to identify stocks with criteria that may indicate potential for future price appreciation. Keep your eyes wide open. Learn how to identify quality.
- Determine a method of knowing when to be buying a stock and when to avoid adding new money to your investments. Date a lot this way you’ll know how to identify the real McCoy.
- Learn technical analysis tools like candlestick charting, EMA, MACD, etc. to better time your entries and exits. Learn Game to better time your entries and exits from relationships.

A wise friend/reader puts it another way:
If a car manufacturer designed a car that required 100 gallons of gasoline per 100 miles, needed its tires to be changed every 200 miles, whose engine broke every 1000 miles, etc., that car wouldn’t even be brought to the design board, let alone be manufactured. That car would be one heck of a “high maintenance” car.
A girl/guy with good fundamentals, on the other hand, is all the more opportunity for a good LTR. Good entrepreneurs, designers, investors, etc., all look at the potential winners of tomorrow. That’s how you get a serious ROI (return on investment). You build/create something that hasn’t been built/created, and you reap the rewards handsomely. Nobody got rich by buying today’s winners, say a stock at $148, and selling it the next quarter.
So my friends invest wisely for your futures.
I’m off on a mini-holiday to the US – so if any comments are made directly to me – I won’t be ignoring you – I’ll be shopping and helping the US’s embattled economy like a good Canadian neighbor should.
