Freeman acquired his shares in Bed, Bath & Beyond when the price of the stock was below $5.50 a share with $25 million he raised from friends and family.
All you have to do is raise a small amount of $25M from your friends and family. I mean who doesn't have an extra $25M laying around and connections to rich people because of your pharma executive parent?
A true self-made success story.
The best way to make money in the stock market is either start with a lot of money, take extreme risks, or invest in blue chip stocks over a long period of time.
I've never done it but know plenty who do as a side hustle. Three things seem to stand out as good tips. One, play the long game. Two, don't invest what you can't afford to lose. Three, really really really know your stuff about your stocks. It's not pot luck imo. But you must take the serious approach or it's akin to throwing 20s bank notes off a clifftop in the wind and expecting them to return as 50s.
Volatility is far to high right now to enter as “New” investor , I highly don’t recommend penny or OTC stocks , commodities is the safest to enter into right now , In my opinion
If you have experience in the market , Shorting has been fairly profitable , although interest is a bit high on shorting . Swing trading is a crap shoot with the current volatility, it’s a get in and get out top side as quickly as possible right now, it too bouncy to play IMO .
