OK, if you have done all of the above, you are ready for INVESTING. What follows is a first course in investing, which amazingly, is almost all that anyone needs to know.
The reason you almost never hear about the following facts is that they are somewhat dull, they don't change much from year to year, and no one will get rich telling you these facts. In our age of advertising, that means no one is going to tell you about these. No salesmen will call, and no TV program or magazine can get more viewers or buyers with them. (Would you buy a magazine that month after month tells you the same thing?)
This first course in investing is made out of the following subjects:
Mutual Funds and Individual Stocks
Example of a simple asset allocation
Real Estate and Collectibles
