Things You Can Start Now to Earn More Money in 2023

Ways to make more money in 2023.

The year is almost over but it’s not too late, there are still things you can start now to earn more money in 2023.

In this article, I’m going to walk you through 5 different ways you can begin to set yourself up for financial success next year.

If you enjoy this article, be sure to join the newsletter below for more content like this.

Also, don’t forget to share this article on social media.

Let’s get started!

#1. Write a Financial Plan with Intention

financial planning

One of the most important things you can do right now is to begin writing a financial plan with intention.

The intention has to be there.

What are your financial goals?

What are your income goals?

Journal them and create a plan on how to make those visions become a reality.

Perhaps you’re looking forward to saving your first $1,000, your first $10,000, or want to hit your first every $100,000+ in capital.

The best way to start that journey is to write it down as a plan first.

Identify what it’s going to take, and the rest will follow through.

#2. Practice or Learn New Skills Now

If part of your plan involves earning more money for 2023 and you’ve identified that you’ll have to take on a whole new industry or develop a new set of skills, start now.

The only way we grow is by learning, and unfortunately there’s no shortcut for it.

You can learn new skills such as copywriting, public speaking, trading, graphic designing, website creation, sales, marketing, branding, etc.

Learning is painful because it’s slow and often times people put learning something new on the back burner to not start over again.

But the truth is you’re not starting all over.

You’re merely making yourself more valuable by elevating your standards.

If you want to make more money in 2023, chances are you’re going to have to do something different the new year than you did this year.

Remember, degrees don’t make you money, skills do.

#3. Solve Problems for Other People

This can be in the form of an actual business venture, or an educational or informational startup, such as an online business (blog, podcast, etc.).

You know this and I know this, there are people making a sh*t ton of money either online or through a traditional business model.

What these individuals are doing is they’re simply solving problems for other people in a particular community or niche industry.

Can you think of a way you can serve people in a manner that will solve a problem for them?

Whether their problem is they’re in the area and they’re hungry, or they don’t know how to dress themselves properly for a specific function, or they don’t know the basics of proper car maintenance.

There is something you know that can solve the problem for someone else whether that be physically or through an online platform.

#4. Start Putting Your Money to Work for You

If you have disposable income, the best thing you can do is to put that money to work for you.

Did you know you can buy stocks that will pay you a dividend every quarter?

These earnings then rollover and compound further growing your investment/net worth.

This of course just one example of how you can put your money to work for you in 2023.

If you have big capital at your disposal, buying a property cash could provide you with rental income while appreciating over the long-term.

#5. Create Something Original You Can Sell

One thing you can do now is create something original that you can sell.

It can be clothes, paintings, a service, a product, a book, literally anything that’s original.

You can sell on eBay, on Etsy, on Instagram Stores, or via a personalized website.

Heck, you can even sell at events or swap meets.

Your hustle is your hustle and you’re more valuable than you think.

Stocks Are Trading Sideways: Is Now Time to Buy?

Market News: Stocks are trading sideways, should you buy?
Market News: Stocks are trading sideways, should you buy?

Stocks are trading sideways, indicating there is indecision in the market.

Despite its macro downtrend this year, the S&P 500 (SPY stock) is retesting its $400 levels after coming down significantly to $350.

As the market sees some bounce, we’re also experiencing major barcoding, or sideways trading.

Market makers are capitalizing on supply and demand zones along with support and resistance levels.

And while day traders are also capitalizing on these swings, it’s retail investors who are stuck in the middle.

Is now the time to buy stocks?

Let’s discuss it below.

Will SPY Break Through?

SPY Stock Chart – Franknez.com.

The SPY is currently in a downtrend channel.

Breaking above the $400 level could mean a strong breakout for the market.

Rejection on the channel’s trendline will result in further market decline where SPY may touch $330.

Buying the market now will play a big role in the momentum needed to break the market’s downtrend.

Our weekly MACD shows us buyers are coming in while our TTM indicator shows us decaying selling momentum, for now.

Market makers and big whales still have the final say of course.

A break above the downtrend signals a great buying opportunity.

Rejection at $400 levels will signify more downtrend for the market lies ahead.

At this point, retail investors may hold off from buying until price hit the next support trendline.

The markets seem to be nowhere near a bounce as both stocks and crypto freefall; is now the time to buy or sell in the market?

If you’re part of the small percentage that’s in profit, maybe liquidating has come through your mind.

Especially if you’re looking to protect your capital and wait for other opportunities.

But what if your portfolio has suffered significant losses?

Is it best to cut your losses and conserve whatever cash you have left?

This article is going to provide you with perspective on ways to not only protect your cash during this nasty bear market, but also how to identify opportunities to multiply your wealth.

Let’s dive right into it.

Should You Buy or Sell?

Should you buy or sell in the market.

Whether you should buy or sell in today’s market conditions will depend on how liquid you are and on your future and current investment plans.

Value investors looking to add stocks to their long-term portfolios could benefit from buying the markets lows, though it’s important to keep in mind that the markets are still susceptible to fall.

Dividend stock investors could also benefit from buying these lows.

Diversified investors who are looking for the next opportunity may want to liquidate positions to have cash ready when the time is right for the next move.

Whether that be waiting for real estate opportunities or other markets to tumble, this will highly depend on an individual’s needs.

With so much uncertainty in the markets at the moment, the best thing investors can do is create a plan to guide their investment goals in the right direction.

Identify what you’re aiming to achieve when investing in the market.

Is it long-term capital gains?

Income?

And decide what it is you need to do now in order to meet your investment needs.

Bitcoin Falls Under $16K, Crypto Down

Crypto News. Bitcoin news.
Crypto News: Bitcoin News.

Bitcoin (BTC) fell under $16K on Wednesday.

Peter Schiff warned investors in a Twitter space call to sell Bitcoin today as the cryptocurrency could be headed towards lower levels.

The economists said he does not own any Bitcoin but urges holders to buy back in after a market collapse occurs in the crypto space.

On the other hand, FTX is causing a ruckus as the token falls more than 90% in the past 7 days with nearly 60% happening in the last 24 hours.

FTX investors include:

  • BlackRock
  • Ontario Pension Fund
  • Sequoia Paradigm
  • Tiger Global
  • SoftBank
  • Circle
  • Ribbit
  • Alan Howard
  • Multicoin
  • VanEck
  • Temasek

In recent crypto news, Binance backed out from saving FTX leaving the crypto on the brink of collapse.

FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried said that without more capital, bankruptcy is likely.

Stock Market Rains Blood

Is now the time to buy in the bear market?
Is now the time to buy in the bear market?

Stocks continue to bleed as the Fed struggles to maintain economic structure and institutional investors liquidate the market.

The NASDAQ and SPY have seen improvement in the past month, but economists, CEOs, and media influencers say the market has plenty of room to drop.

Stocks fell sharply on Wednesday, a day before CPI announcements.

Poor consumer reports could cause stocks to fall sharply again.

Traders should trade with caution.

With inflation affecting millions of families and corporations such as Netflix, Facebook (META), Twitter, and Tesla laying off tens of thousands of employees, a recession looms.

Whether you decide to buy or sell in today’s markets will ultimately depend on how liquid you are and whether you’re prepared to face a highly likely recession in the coming months to year.

Creating a plan and identifying what you can and cannot do financially as turmoil hits the economy is your best bet of riding this wave.

Retail Investors Have Big Opportunity in the Market Right Now

Stocks and Crypto to buy in a bear market.
Stocks and Crypto to Buy in a Bear Market | Opportunity in the market right now.

That’s right, even in today’s bear market, retail investors have big opportunity right now.

If you’re a new investor or entered the market during the bull run, chances are your portfolio is down significantly.

But don’t let your first bear market shake you off because there are numerous opportunities out there that have the potential to yield big returns.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ve more than likely capitalized on opportunities such as AMC, HYMC, Shiba Inu Coin, Terra Classic, and Bitcoin during properly and fortunately timed moments.

So, what’s new?

In this article, I’m going to go over the opportunities I see that lie ahead for retail investors.

None of the information on my blog is financial advice but rather speculative content based on current information and trends in the market.

And with that being said, let’s get started.

Not Invested in The Markets Yet?

If you or someone you know are not invested in the markets yet, the two articles below are going to walk you through, step-by-step on how to buy stocks for the very first time and how to buy cryptocurrency for the very first time, too.

Much information on how to invest in the markets is outdated so I wanted to create easy guides for beginners.

You can read them here to get started:

Remember, one of the greatest wealth you can share with someone else is that of knowledge.

Opportunities in the Stock Market Today

opportunities in the stock market today
Opportunities in the stock market today.

During a bear market share prices tend to tumble, hence why many long-term investor’s portfolios tend to lose value.

And although we can’t entirely time the bottom, we know that at some point the stock market is at a massive fire sale.

Value investors such as you and I can pick up shares from our favorite companies at these low prices before the market reverses trend.

Economists, analysts, and entrepreneurs alike predict there is still room for another 10%-15% drop in the markets.

But for the record, these are just predictions after all.

The point here is for value investors to capitalize on this falling trend by purchasing low and holding during the next bull market.

Whether you choose to capitalize on opportunities presented in a bull market or not will ultimately be up to you.

However, capitalizing during a bull market will require value investors to buy during a bear market, not during the bull market.

After being involved in the retail community for almost three years now, there are stocks and crypto that just stand out as having big potential during the next bull run and I’m going to discuss them below.

Stocks Worth Buying During a Bear Market

None of the information provided below is financial advice, but rather speculative in nature based on market trends and current information at the time of publication.

AMC Entertainment Stock (AMC)

You’ve probably heard all the ruckus on AMC and ‘meme stocks’.

It’s true, the stock jumped from $5 per share to an all-time high of $72 per share.

AMC Entertainment stock is currently trading below $6 again due to this bear market.

What makes this stock such an interesting value investment is that it has a huge community made up of millions of people who plan to take its current price up again.

Plus, the company has beat earnings every quarter since 2021.

Investing in the largest movie theater chain in the world could prove to pay out big during the next bull market.

SPY Stock (SPY)

I’ve talked about SPY stock numerous times on my blog.

It’s even made the list of best divided stocks to buy for passive income.

SPY is the S&P 500 index fund that tracks the top 500 performing companies in the U.S and has been a favorite amongst value investors for a long time.

Warren Buffett himself says he’s moving 90% of his wealth to this specific stock when he departs us.

Just this thought should speak for itself.

SPY has a great track record for its increased value over time.

Vanguard Real Estate REIT (VNQ)

I believe every value investor should have at least one great performing REIT, or Real Estate Investment Trust.

VNQ is Vanguard’s commercial real estate investment trust with a great track record since the recession of 2008.

The REIT is also on the list of the best dividend stocks to buy for passive income.

While the real estate market is set to retrace some of its gains, keeping an eye on this stock may provide retail investors with big opportunity during the next bull market.

GameStop Stock (GME)

What GameStop is doing with their NFT marketplace is genius and not a lot of people know about it.

Wonder why, *ahem, mainstream media*.

The video game company is making it available for people around the world to own actual digital items inside games through the use of blockchain technology.

The opportunity this technology will bring to entrepreneurs and flippers alike in the future is massive.

Investing in GameStop early on could have massive potential as our economy shifts towards the digital/metaverse economy.

Amazon Stock (AMZN)

Amazon is now affordable for just about any value investor to buy shares from.

The company stock traded above $3K per share before its 20-for-1 stock split made it available for everyone to purchase.

AMZN is currently trading below $100 per share and it’s a steal whether you’re anticipating another 10%-15% market drop or not.

Tesla Stock (TSLA)

Despite what you might think of eccentric billionaire Elon Musk, you cannot deny what the entrepreneur has created is fascinating in its own respect.

Tesla stock has shown outstanding growth in the past even after stock splits.

We’ve seen this company’s stock reach massive popularity during the previous bull market.

In fact, it was right under AMC Entertainment stock as the most searched for stock on Google in 2021.

Meta Platforms Stock (META)

Most boomer investors, like mainstream media, don’t truly understand the potential of Meta.

While Zucks might currently get made fun of by Wall Street ego, there’s a huge opportunity investing in early technology, especially a technology that one day may change the world as we know it.

Today’s innovators will carry the baton, whether old power likes it or not.

Crypto to Buy During a Bear Market

Compounding starts with reinvesting

Which stocks to buy?
Which stocks to buy?

The list below is made up of cash dividend paying stocks, companies with enough cash at hand which allows them to pay cash dividends to its investors every quarter.

The key here is to ensure that you opt in to ‘reinvest’ these cash dividends back into the asset so that your number of shares automatically compound every quarter.

On some occasions, the default setting is set to ‘cash’ instead of ‘reinvest’, which means your broker account will receive the cash dividend as a form of payment and settle in your funds like a deposit.

When you’ve built a strong retirement portfolio and you’re ready to claim the fruit of your labor many years from now, then you’ll want to begin taking that big cash.

But in the meantime, we’re focusing on setting ourselves up for that chapter in our lives so make sure you opt in to ‘reinvest’ that cash dividend.

Over time, you will see your number of shares grow fractionally and then eventually turn into whole numbers.

This process will continue repeating as you continue to fund your cash dividend stock portfolio.

Which Stocks Can Take Care of You Forever?

Long-Term Investing vs Short Squeeze Plays vs Day Trading

Long-Term Investing vs Short Squeeze Plays vs Day Trading
Wealth Building: Differences between Long-Term Investing, Short Squeeze Plays, and Day Trading

Today’s article is going to be extremely educational; I’m going over the biggest differences between long-term investing, short squeeze plays, and day trading.

In this article you’re going to discover what makes each one more susceptible than the other to market manipulation and overall risk.

When you’re looking to build wealth in the market, it is important to identify the major differences between the three.

Be sure to bookmark this page so you can come back to it in the future for a mental refresh.

Let’s get started!

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – join my newsletter to receive more content just like this straight to your inbox.

I’ve helped people learn how to invest in stocks, crypto, and how to day trade options as well.

My goal is to help you take your finances to the next level. Be sure to browse the blog for market news, wealth building tips, and other valuable content.

Let’s dive right into it!

#1. Long-Term investing

Long-term investing is the #1 traditional way to build wealth over a long period of time.

Investors looking to build wealth this way tend to invest in high dividend yielding stocks such as the S&P 500.

Here, an investor’s portfolio compounds over time as dividends are rolled over or reinvested back into the asset – further purchasing more stock on its own.

During the years of retirement, investors may decide to stop reinvesting the dividend and accept the dividend as cash instead.

This is how a dividend stock portfolio may yield investors with big passive income in the form of cashflow many years later.

Many of these stocks are not heavy victims to market manipulation due to the security and minimalistic risk there is to invest in these funds.

#2. Short Squeeze plays

Short squeeze plays have a high risk/high reward ratio that has attracted many new investors into the market.

When a stock is being heavily shorted, the short interest percentage of the stocks float tends to rise.

This means that with enough buying pressure, investors may increase the probability of squeezing short sellers from their positions.

We saw this occur when AMC ran from $2 per share to $72 per share and when GameStop skyrocketed into the hundred-dollar levels.

While both these two stocks are still heavily shorted, these are just two examples of short squeeze plays where investors could have taken advantage of an opportunity to make big bucks.

Short squeeze plays are more susceptible to market manipulation since market makers tend to have a lot of control of retail investor’s orders.

They may drive share prices down by overleveraging their already bias positions, which means a lot of momentum is required for a short squeeze play to be successful.

Short squeeze plays are a form of swing trades that may last weeks to months of holding a stock before trading it for profit.

This type of investment strategy may be viewed as mid-term investing to cash in big on a rather unique opportunity.

#3. Day Trading

Day trading uses leverage as a multiplier to trade stocks in a short-term timeframe.

What makes this investment strategy attractive to most investors are the possibilities to earn massive gains in such a short period of time.

Traders are earning money whether the market is up or down through ‘put and call options contracts’.

Unlike long-term investing or short squeeze plays that have a buy and hold approach, day trading is a skill that requires focus, discipline, and a deep understanding about the psychology of trading.

Day traders can earn hundreds to thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars on a daily basis (you can view my gains here).

While day trading is mainly a form of income, traders may still allocate earnings towards long-term investments to further build their wealth.

Here’s how you make money trading the S&P 500.
Read: How to Trade Options in The Market with a 9-5

Which investment strategy is best for you?

As investors, we need to identify the best way to take advantage of the tool that is the stock market.

Long-term investors should focus on increasing their income to flood their portfolios with compounding effects.

Short squeeze traders should draw out a macro vision board to determine which path to take after short squeeze profits are secured.

Day traders would be wise to invest a portion of their income towards dividend paying assets or physical assets (such as property or a business) that will produce cashflow.

Building wealth is about having your money work for you so that you can have the time freedom to do what you love most.

Investors want to know; can AMC stock reach $100 per share?

Last year AMC’s share price skyrocketed to an all-time high of $72 per share.

Retail investors were able to trigger this price surge when a few short sellers decided to close their short positions.

AMC’s short interest percentage during that time dropped from 23% to 20%, and then to 14%.

AMC Entertainment was barely recovering during this time.

Today, the company is stronger than ever before.

Here’s what we know.

Comparing AMC this year to last year

Can AMC stock hit $100 per share?

AMC is no longer the same company it was last year.

So much has changed ever since the retail community armed the century old movie theatre chain with more than a billion dollars in liquidity.

AMC repaid $45 million of deferred rent reducing their balance to approximately $272 million in Q1 of 2022.

The company plans to reduce the deferred rent by another $125 million by the end of this year.

CFO Sean Goodman announced that AMC seated 39 million guests in Q1 alone this year; it had seated 7 million guests in Q1 of 2021.

A whopping 32 million difference.

AMC Entertainment earned $785.7 million in revenue this first quarter, more than five times the revenue in Q1 of 2021 ($148.3m).

The company also ended Q1 with $1.4 billion in liquidity.

Quick updates

  • Financial reports suggest AMC is on a road to financial recovery from the impact of Covid-19.
  • AMC’s Perfectly Popcorn business is on schedule to enter the retail game later this year.
  • The company is currently doing product testing, research, and looking at new concepts.
  • AMC says the launch of an AMC credit card is going to be a lucrative business opportunity for the company.
  • 8 different NFT programs have been launched or are in the works of being launched so far, further fueling movie ticket sales.

AMC Entertainment is a stronger company fundamentally today.

Its innovation with crypto and NFTs are going to propel not just the business forward, but its share price in the long-term future too.

Can AMC stock reach $100?
Can AMC stock reach $100?

AMC stock almost reached $100 per share when it surged to $72 last year during the month of June.

The stock price was only at $14 when it began to uptrend.

AMC traded at $14.66 on Friday.

Can AMC stock reach $100 per share?

Of course it can.

But the process will require retail investors to be patient.

Whether fundamentals play a role in it or not, AMC only needs a few short sellers to close their positions in order to make this share price level come to fruition.

Will Redbox Stock Keep Going Up?

Will Redbox stock keep going up?

Redbox stock has been having an incredible rally despite the current market situation.

The stock is up more than 430% on the monthly chart.

Today RDBX finished up 15.68% but saw gains up to 30%.

Retail investors want to know, will Redbox keep going up?

Let’s discuss it.

Redbox Stock outperforms the market

The stock market had one of the worst trading days in history today.

SPY stock was down almost 4% on Monday and the NASDAQ almost 5%.

Seeing the market today seemed unnatural – catastrophic almost.

But Redbox stock outperformed the market.

It closed today’s trading day with 55.3 million in trading volume from its average of 18.9 million.

Redbox has been exploding in the past month due to the massive surge of retail investors jumping in on this new ‘meme stock’.

It earns its ‘meme stock’ title due to Redditors discovering its incredibly high short interest, and short squeeze possibility.

Mainstream media is saying today’s rally was due to Redbox squeezing, but in order for us to track its short squeeze we’ll have to take a close look at the short interest data.

Will Redbox stock squeeze?

Will Redbox stock squeeze?

Redbox stock currently has a short interest of 225.59%.

This is massive.

But mainstream finance platforms say RDBX stock squeezed today.

We will have to keep an eye out on this short interest percentage to determine whether shorts indeed closed some positions.

You will know shorts began to buy back shares if the short interest drops significantly.

Otherwise, the price movement could have simply been from big buying pressure.

AMC Entertainment stock saw gains up to 3,000% last year when some shorts began to close their positions.

GameStop saw gains upwards to 1,500%.

Redbox stock has only seen some 430% gains so far and has a much higher short interest than what AMC and GameStop had.

Will RDBX stock squeeze?

Just like we saw with AMC and GameStop, heavy buying pressure all at once may trigger short sellers to close, initiating a short squeeze.

How high will Redbox stock go?

Redbox has a high probability of reaching all-time high share prices.

The stock was hard to knock down despite the stock market heavily getting splattered.

While majority of the stock market was pulled down, Redbox stock finished the day green.

It’s always difficult to determine how high a heavily shorted stock such as Redbox will go.

This is primarily due to how many factors affect its share price.

The incredible thing is that it’s also costing short sellers a lot to short this stock.

RDBX has a cost to borrow of 636.42.

There’s no reason why anyone in the market should be able to short the stock this much.

It’s as if institutions did not learn from shorting both AMC and GameStop.

The short interest data in this stock is so high, there’s no doubt shorts will be getting burned on this one again.

I published an article on RDBX stock almost two weeks ago before it began to rally even higher.

Are Institutions Preparing to Close Short Positions in AMC?

How soon will institutions close short positions in AMC stock?

Retail investors have been waiting for big institutions to close their short positions in AMC for over a year now.

Many short positions in AMC Entertainment stock still remained open after January’s and May’s runup last year.

This year’s bear market has dropped stock prices back to all-time lows.

Will this provide institutions with incentive to close short positions in AMC now?

Let’s discuss it below.

AMC drops to all-time lows again

Are institutions preparing to close short positions in AMC stock?
Are institutions preparing to close short positions in AMC stock?

The entire market is on a free-fall.

AMC Entertainment stock managed to fall below $13 on Monday despite heavy buying volume.

The off-exchange trading for AMC is currently around 62.26% according to Fintel, and shorts have borrowed an additional 1M shares to short the stock according to Stonk-O-Tracker.

These predatorial strategies have retail investors pinned and losing money on their investment.

The economy’s health isn’t helping much either, but further fueling the market’s stress.

Interest rates are rising, inflation is at an all-time high, and the U.S is battling several issues outside the country with Russia and Ukraine, and at home.

Today’s economy has the entire market beat.

And AMC Entertainment is no exception the free-fall despite the company’s continuous progress.

AMC has become a trading ground

Traders and institutions are trading AMC at all times.

At some point, positions will have to get closed.

DTCC B16845-22 raised margin requirements by 25% for stock trading above $10 per share.

If AMC stock drops below $10 per share, then margin requirements will be raised to 30%.

This is rather significant because it requires institutions shorting AMC stock to carry more collateral.

Unfortunately for the rest of the market, institutions will continue to create massive selloffs just to keep up with these margin requirements.

But it gets worse for them because the lower AMC drops, the more collateral will be required of them.

Financial institutions are being stretched beyond their means and it’s not going to end well for them.

We’ve already seen hedge funds fall – and we can expect this trend to continue.

Could institutions be preparing to close short positions?

Institutions will eventually begin to hedge on the upside (long).

For this to happen, they will need to identify the market’s bottom.

Economists believe there is still quite aways to go before the market begins bottoming out.

Others such as Forbes believes the stock market is finishing this crater of a selloff.

With this in mind, institutions always strategize when it comes to market conditions.

It is very possible AMC short sellers could begin to close their positions as the markets begin to bottom out.

When this will occur is unknown.

No one has been able to perfectly time the market; however, there are always signals in the market that allow investors to foresee specific trends.

A reversal is imminent

Despite where the bottom lies, investors holding AMC stock should know that a reversal is imminent.

A reversal is a change in the price of an asset which can occur to the upside or downside – depending on a securities’ current trendline.

For AMC, a reversal would push the stock up.

Not only is a reversal imminent for AMC stock, but for the entire market as well.

Stocks can’t keep going down forever, at some point they must go up again.

I have a feeling this is going to be one of the biggest reversals in history.

I’m interested to learn what you think.
