HODL - 26K Think Long Term & Other Investment Trends

Access to Financial Information

It's a brand new day.......

After a rollercoaster of a ride yesterday on Wall street, record high ends the session today. The DOW Jones after breaking the 26K barrier yesterday did not sustain there. However, today.......

  • DJI closed over 26K at $26,115.62 (+322.79   1.25%)
  • Nasdaq $7,298.28 (+74.59    1.03%)
  • S&P 500  $2,802.56  (+26.14   0.94%)

Encouraging statements out of APPLE (APPL) $179.10 (+2.91 1.65%), as they announce a $350 billion investment excluding a $5 billion advanced manufacturing fund & expects to add 20,000 jobs over the next 5 years. All the while it will pay a $38 billion tax bill, so that foreign money can be moved back into the US.

Boeing Co (BA) $351.01 (+15.85   4.73%)  Travel, airbus demands seems to be the motivation behind it's strong market growth.

IBM (IBM) $168.65 (+4.80  2.93%) up on speculations of cloud computing, possible share gains in microprocessors on the wake of Intel & Advanced Micro Devices chip flaws.

On the crypto front the word of the day is 'HODL" 

As I mentioned in yesterday post. This is what the markets do. Spikes & dips......Candlesticks

Yet, rest assure that the current market actions are just what is needed......volatility! When you have a 2000% upward trend over the course of 12 months, one can surely expect this kind of market actions 01/16/2018. Where most altcoins took between a 16.00% and 30.00% dip.

People have to remember that in the early stage of the game, long-term should be the thought process. Hold, study what are the causes, act but don't over react!

There will be multiple situations over the coming months/years that will cause one to go into panic mode. Regulatory concerns, China, Korea, the US dollar, gold prices. The list can go on. Yet, knowing that you are in it for the long haul should be of some relief.  

If you are one of the early birds that got in some year ago and beyond. You are still sitting pretty. Your gains far out weight any current losses of recent days.  From the chart below, you can see that most top coins are up in the plus range over the last 24 hrs.
  • Bitcoin - $11,426.15  +8.28 (24 hr. Change)
  • Bitcoin cash - $1,769.67  8.09%
  • Ethereum - $1,045.12  12.26%  
  • Ripple -  $1.33  +33.60%
  • Litecoin -$192.89  +16.33%
  • Neo - $152.69  +30.56%
  • Cardano - $0.673  +29.61

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%  
  • Ripple -  $1.21  -24.39%
  • 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.

Bitcoin ~ NEW All-Time High, BlockChain & Wall Street also Investors/Tax Bill Provisions

DISCLOSURE: This post contains sponsored ads which I will be compensated if a purchase is made after clicking on my links.

Up 7500% plus for the year

The Future of Possible

New TAX bill includes individual investor provisions:
   If the proposed tax bill is passed investors could be paying as much as $2.7 billion more in taxes over the next decade. 
It would require individual investor who decided to sell off stocks they have owned the longest. 

   It's a process called 1st in - 1st out. The scheme is that the oldest shares generally has the biggest yields, thereby higher capital gains tax.

Wall Street eyeballs CVS as it continues it's interest in Aetna. 

Blockchain adds to it intergration into wall street. 
   This disruptive technology "Blockchain" or distributed ledger - in it's simplicity is a decentralized "digital ledger" database. Meaning third parties entities such as a middle-person could be eliminated.

   Here on Wall Street a consumer and suppliers or investor & asset managers are in direct contact with each other in what are known as "Smart Contracts"

   Cryptography or hashing keeps the exchange secure. The transactions or "BLOCK(s)" are on a chain of computer seen by everyone on the network who have verified & record it's approval.

   Depending on it's applications, technically there are several forms of this  "Blockchain" and distributed ledger.

   This is also the same technology behind the popular Bitcoin phenomenon.

The Wealthy Smell Opportunity - That's Where They Go

Two expensive cars on the shores of Dubai at night

Shut up & just do what the wealthy do!

   In an earlier post, Wall street & the stock market  I mentioned that it seems the wealthy just know where the money is.  They smell it and that's where they'll be. I'm sure there's a little more to it than that. Yet, it would be quite impressive if that were true. 

   What they do have, is they share traits that are consistent with each other. They are entrepreneurs, constantly looking for opportunity. They are disciplined, self motivated & go-getters. 

   You don't have to tell them to put an effort into a project. First in - last out! They want shit to get done. Which brings into play an obvious trait.......leadership. In order to have their vision brought to fruition, they must be able to delegate the right team players to produce the required performance.

   On the other side of that, are those with the negative notion that the rich just get richer. Which actually is a true statement. But to some, being rich or wealthy has a negative stigma attached to it in their mind. Of course, this clearly would have a profound effect on a persons ability to engineer a profitable wealth building strategy.  

   Without fully understanding their reasons for wealth deficiency, they tend to just has a negative outlook on the rich and affluent. Let's just call it what it is........HATERS!  ok

   To be honest with you, once you're rich, is there any other way to go?  SAVE & INVEST, there's only a certain amount of material things one can buy. (most wealthy citizens, are not generally flashy) Only so many properties you can reside at. How much money can you spend in a day. At which point, logic would entitle one to invest it into something worthwhile and be charitable. 

   If you work arduously to gain wealth and a good life. Would you want to go back to anything less? Of course not! 

A box on the bed with a million dollar neatly stacked
  My view point is this, if I knew someone had one million dollars and by the next year they were broke. I'd be a bit upset at them. How could someone blow away a million dollars?  Yes,  I'd be disappointed cause I know I would have done something differently.

   How many of us have been at the office or workplace. And been asked, what would you do if you had a million dollars?

   Now, I've been in this scene a few times myself. And 85% of the time, people have had a fairly decent response on their spending habits with that million dollar.

   Paying off  bills, buying a home, giving a little something to their closest relatives are the typical responses.

   However, I love it when I hear the ones that get a bit more defined. Knowing about savings, investing and buying property.

   Before we go into the body of this post, which is doing what the wealthy do to remain financially independent. I  also want to take a look at several view points surrounding the pros & cons about wealth! Along with some of the causes why there are people who never obtain prosperity while others do. 
Sometimes over & over again.

When it comes to wealth & riches.........

Let's make one thing perfectly clear that the two are different. Yes, they really are.

Rich technically is having enough money for a comfortable living today. One can afford the luxury of life NOW!

Wealthy - in it's simplicity, the wealthy are rich for generations. Wealthy beings have not only their children life's financially secured. They have their grandchildren children secured.


 The theme itself  (creating wealth or riches) can be a little like politics to some. Sure, most people want to EARN their fair share. Even aim to become a little secure & comfortable with the abundance in life. 

   Some will and have commit unspeakable crimes to control it. And be controlled by it.  Others fear it all together. Being as.......
Money is the root of ALL evil!

Begging poor person with a rich wealthy person
   I personally, struggled for years with my own demons. One of them being that money would change me. Or I would forget where I came from if I was to wealthy. (You would be amazed at how many feel like this). Another was my negative sub-conscious mindset. Mine, the fear that I might not be around tomorrow, so I'll live and spend day by day, pay check to pay check. Many others do just that in their own lives.....sabotage their future with reckless financial thinking.

A luxury home with a lavish back yard with a large beautiful pool and patio
   Which brings us to the core of this post.....changing the way we think about money. Doing what the wealthy do, point blank!  There's nothing wrong with being wealthy. Nothing at all. That's just it! The only unsound belief in becoming wealthy would be how one gains that wealth status. An honest hard working effort, should NOT demean anyone from enjoying their spoils nor the lifestyle because of your assets! 

   Those of us who have had that negative mentality, have to realize that somewhere somehow, someone or something implanted a virus in our conscious that has conditioned us to that way of thinking. It did not happen over night and will not be cure nor debug/rewire itself over night! 

 Dividend Stocks

   You must simply, re-condition your thoughts. You must want to be wealthy. Picture yourself in that nice home, taking great trips. Surrounding yourself with readings, pictures, videos and people who you will interact with on that level. 

   Mapping out a plan, fine tuning those steps every single day. It's one thing to see or dream the end goal yet, entirely another level to get there. 

   Picturing yourself helping others, because giving back is essential to wealth building. But, you must help yourself first in order to be able to help someone else. To empower others you must first empower yourself. 

 Bitcoin Revolution Guide
   Wealthy people believe it or not, generally don't spend crazy money. Just cause they can doesn't mean they do. If you think about it, that would seem to go hand in hand with being wealthy. Mostly, because they invest.
   Control self-gratification. Stop living day-2-day. Learn saving techniques, budgeting habits. 

    Stop putting off tomorrow what can be done today! Just get it done and out the way. And move on to the next step or goal.

   It will take time. There will be many up's & down's, setbacks......disappointments, rejections not to mention failures. All of which are needed so that you will learn what you are really made of. To build up character & strength.

Failure is the must ingredient in a well done success story. 


   To be honest with you, as I wrote in my success/failure. Failures and setbacks in our lives are simply a test. Do you really want what you are going after? 

   See, winner don't quit right? You are not failing nor undeserving of riches. You must also master the achievement, respect it, along with appreciating the efforts it took to fulfill it.

   Those that receive money fast, most likely will lose it the same way. That scenario has been played out time & time again. Ask any drug dealer, there are plenty of lottery winner that'll tell you the same. Whether they learned the hard way.

If one....lives by the sword - surely they will die by the sword.

   Earn it by honest hard work, play hard honestly. Hard effort includes putting in sacrifices. Giving up the now for the tomorrows

   Remember we are changing our thought process, the attitudes & those nasty bad habits.

 International Solar Energy Provider

   Understanding that once those old habit and thought patterns are broken. You can now began to think in earning money passively.  You will still need to put in the work, the 9-5  or even overtime. Because you must now think about having while putting that money to work for you. 

   What is your you have a meaningful reason behind getting wealthy. 

What is your WHY

This must become your passion. 

   Have something that gets a fire lit underneath that ass. Believe me, when you are passionate about something you're going to go for it. You're going to want to get it done. That's when you know your heart is in it for the long haul.  That it's a true destiny and not just a fad nor wish.

   You are going to have to take risk, get use to it. Do the necessary research, footwork and due diligence. Remember, at times actions will not always come out in your favor. You will understand why it didn't later. These are your learning curves. It could be telling you, it's time to do something different or try harder. Time will inform you on which!

Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over again then expecting a different result.  

 ChartMiner Investment University
That above statement was put there for a reason. Read, learn & carry it within you. 

        It does mean something!

  Passive income simply means you are making money without you directly participating in the venture. A savings account is a passive income. It is sitting in a bank making you more money without you doing anything more than the initial work.

   Writing a book, producing a song or music album, making a movie. Opening up some franchised stores ALL are passive income. What do they ALL have in common?

Doing something once, get paid over & over again for the effort.

   Owning rentals, investments  & real estate are also passive income. And here we are. The point in which this post supplements.

Invest, investing & investments 

Yes, another  attribute the wealthy & rich ALL have in common? They invest!

   They take their money, buy into an investment and hold onto it for a long long time. Over time as the markets whether it be stocks & bonds gradually climb. So does their value as well as their profits. It sounds simple and it is yet. The hard part is your initial monetary investments. You first must come up with the investment dollars, then learn how to pick great stocks and study how the market system works.
