Oprah TV show discusses Windfalls and their Pitfalls

The Money Coach's Guide to Your First Million by Lynnette Khalfani

Windfalls can be a wonderful financial break. Oprah discussed with a number of guests how coming into a large sum of money has changed their life. It was a surprising show to see how people handle their money, and how it can cause unwanted stress and problems in their lives.

Oprah’s first guest was a lady that struck it rich in business. She moved to New York and in 2 months time made $60,000. She opened her own shop and in the first year sold 1.2 million at her boutique. Her and her husband lived large. She estimates that she would spend $1,000 a week on eating out at restaurants. She would travel to London and Paris 4 times a year. In this time, she didn’t have a savings account. She instead chose to use drugs because she felt like she wasn’t fitting in with the wealthy. Her drug habit cost her around $600 per day. She estimated that she spent $250,000 in drugs in a year’s time.

Two popular terms which often confuse investors are "trend following" and "momentum investing." Perhaps the most glaring commonality between these two is their blatant defiance of "buy and hold," the practice of selecting an investment and holding it indefinitely, believing that over time the market goes up, and therefore any investment will appreciate. Although the buy and hold approach has been touted for years by academics as the best method of investing, in reality it has its shortcomings, which are apparent in every Bear market.

Fix And Flip - The Formula

Fix And Flip - The Formula

Making money with a "fix and flip" property is a great way to make money in real estate. However, it isn't about repairing drywall and planting flowers. It's all about how you do the numbers.

People often buy and sell a fixer-upper without a definite plan. They buy a house, fix it up, then add $10,000 or $20,000 onto their costs. They then put the house up for sale at this price.

Have you ever bought a house according to what the seller has into it? Of course not. You look at similar houses to determine the value. If you have $110,000 into a fix-and-flip project, and similar homes are selling for $105,000, how much will you get? It has nothing to do with what you've spent, does it?

There is no set accepted definition of Penny Stocks or Small-Cap Stocks. The following definitions are a good guideline as defined by common use. Our definition of a Penny Stock is not dependant on the price at which it trades (although many refer to any stock under $5 as a penny stock) but rather the total market cap. We define a Penny Stock as any security trading with a market cap of less than one hundred million dollars regardless of which exchange it trades on.

Breakdown by market cap looks like this:

Micro Cap/ Penny Stock: Any stock with a market cap less than $100 million.

Small Cap Stock: Market Cap between $100 million and $1 Billion.

Mid Cap Stock: Market Cap between $1 Billion and $5 Billion

Large Cap Stock: Market Cap over $5 Billion.
