It’s very easy to be distracted by all the negative noise around us!
Between the government shutdown, Fed Chair Jerome Powell, the trade dispute with China, and the stock market decline over the last four months it’s enough to make any new investor nervous about jumping into the stock market.
I can assure you that we will continue to have volatility. However…please keep your mind on the bigger picture, and don’t be afraid to get started.
You see, there are things in motion that cannot be undone.
In fact, history has demonstrated that recessions or economic slowdowns are good for disruptive innovation. Companies like Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) thrived during the Great Recession. It was not reflected in the stock price in the short run, but they crushed the market over the long run.
I share in my book, The Stock Market is For Everyone, about how I missed out on Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) early on.
We are now at the beginning of quite possibly the biggest tech boom ever. Please, please don’t miss out!
Tomorrow morning, I’m going to post a list of five stocks currently priced at under $50 per share. If you have not yet started investing, any number of shares of any of these companies would be a great place for you to begin.
What could your investment in a disruptively innovative company be worth in 20 years?
