My Personal Top PICK & TRACK Stocks for 2018

Staying informed on stock market investments

Search engine for things you can buy with Bitcoin
The "2018 Wehit "Pick & Track" chart will be a personal top 20 pick that I have an interest in. These picks, I will post as of this posting several times a week on their progress.They are a variation of biotech, technology, cannabis and cryptocurrency entities. I am watching the performance of these stocks as part of an on-going research into these industries in 2018. Again, these are of interest to @wehit and are in no way a recommendation.

Stocks are a weird entity of sorts.  For centuries humans have made and lost fortunes in the markets. Billions have been invested, millions spent trying to understand it's behavior. Which is probably why we are drawn towards it's unpredictability and risk it's financial rewards.


01/16/2018 (LOTs  of REDS)

Today, the Dow hits 26K yet closed out at $25,792.86  -10.33  0.04% (+4.34 for the year)

As the Nasdaq slides $7,224.00 -37.06  0.51% (+4.64 for the year)

While the S&P500 holds @ 2776.42 0.00  0.00% (+3.85 for 2018)

All on the heels of the euro as it hits a 3yr. high against the USD.

GE takes a beating, dipping -0.55  2.93% to $18.21

In the crypto world,  also on edge, even though the altcoins are performing as expected when you throw volatility in the mix. Still, most took a grave hit today.

  • Bitcoin - $11,256.55  -16.39%
  • Bitcoin cash - $1,770.17  -23.03%
  • Ethereum - $1,036.69  -17.42%

  • Litecoin -$189.46  -16.37%
  • Neo - $142.17  -21.58%
  • Cardano - $0.595  -19.67

It seems that most altcoins took a huge dip between -16.00% to -30.00%

Welcome to the world of investments........

The stock markets with it's SPIKE's (up's) and DIP's (down's) acts almost as if they were a pinball machine, bouncing around, up & down day in day out.  Never knowing when that ball will slip between your flippers. 

Yet, the financial returns are a sense of  future security, particular when in it for the long-term. If you are planning to invest in a company knowingly for 5, 10 15 years. Tracking will only cause you an emotional distress. That seesaw reflection you will witness, likely will keep you up at nights.

However, tracking the companies that you have shares with is your obligation .  As an investor, you want as much information on financial reports, company earnings, quarterly meetings, management changes and data on stocks. Again, this is your duty, as your future yields & gains depends on knowing the happenings of said company.

Below, I have taken the first 5 of 20 companies that I am researching in 2018. These are not recommendation as stated, yet, are within industries that I feel are worthy of potential gains.
