Nothing is more dissatisfying than seeing your portfolio down.

You work so hard to earn the money to invest it, finally begin to see some growth, and then the market dumps.

Now your stock portfolio is down.

Most of you aren’t ‘hedging’ against your losses like most financial institutions are either.

So, what can you do to navigate this bad weather?

Here are 3 tips that will get you through it.

Welcome to Franknez.com – if your stock portfolio is down right now some of you might be wondering whether you should cut your losses or not. Here’s what I’m personally doing.

#1. Increase your position(s)

One way I personally take advantage of the market when my stock portfolio is down is by increasing my positions.

If you’re a long-term stockholder like I am then you understand the current market situation is only temporary and the market always tends to bounce right back up.

This means that any stock that’s red in my portfolio is at a discount.

Some of you who are part of my private community have received alerts and notifications of when I’ve bought a dip (both stock and crypto).

It’s these types of strategies that have allowed me to weather the bad storm when my portfolios are down.

Why buy on red days?

Buying on red days even if your portfolio is down means you will profit as soon as the market begins to trend upwards again.

If a stock you purchased is down -5% then it goes down to -10%, you can take advantage of buying the asset cheaper at -10% if you anticipate its value will go back up.

In this scenario, if the value goes up again and the original stock you purchased has broken even, then the other share(s) you bought low are up +5%.

If your conviction towards a stock or company is strong, buying heavy during the lows could significantly increase your portfolio’s value as the stock begins to climb again.

While many novice investors might panic at the sight of their assets declining in value, it’s best to stay calm and rely on your conviction and have a strategy in mind.

#2. Invest your money in other assets

Other assets you can invest your money in when your portfolio is down could be a business, a crypto wallet, or even in yourself.

One way I’ve invested my money during this bear market aside from stocks and cryptocurrencies has been in my business and in my health.

The reason we invest is to get a return.

So why not invest in a startup or even in yourself?

Because ultimately you are the vehicle that’s going to take you to where you want to be.

Think about how else you can make a return on the money you’re about to invest.

Nothing is ever certain, not even in the stock market.

Take a risk and invest in yourself.

Assets you can invest in other than stocks

  • Cryptocurrencies
  • NFTs
  • Startup/Side Hustle/ Business
  • Health

You’ll find that once you invest in other income generating opportunities, those same opportunities will eventually allow you to invest more into the markets and within one another.

This form of diversification is going to armor you up for when your stock portfolio is down.

Keep track of your net worth as well as the sources growing it to build your portfolio’s confidence.

#3. You can always play it passively

When your stock portfolio is down, you can always choose to play it passively and do nothing.

You understand building your net worth is going to take time despite what the market is going through.

Perhaps you don’t find cryptocurrencies or startups attractive, and that’s okay.

This third tip is to be patient and let your portfolio go through the growing pains.

Believe me when I say I’ve been there too.

The important thing here is to stay calm and not let your feelings control your financial decisions.

I know too well this is one of the hardest things about having money planted in the stock market.

But in the end, this all about taking in that learning experience so you can do better the next time an opportunity comes your way.

When should you cut your losses?

when should you cut your losses?

You should cut your losses only when you’ve identified an investment is a dead play or you are not seeing results after 1-2 years, especially if you’re going long on a stock or company.

Day traders cut their losses quick because they’re in the stock market for short-term gains.

Long-term investors should keep a close eye on what they’re investing in to identify whether there is future growth of a stock.

One way I’ve identified a potentially great long-term stock is by looking at the stock’s history chart.

If there’s been consistent growth for over a period of a few years, then you can assume the trajectory will follow in the coming years.

I created a list of these type of long-term stocks here.

I cut my losses on SPRT shortly after the merge with Greenridge because at that point I didn’t trust the company nor its partners.

Another stock I sold was AT&T because after a little over a year all it did was consolidate and its performance was not on parr with my expectations.

These are just my personal experiences selling stocks in the market.

AT&T has a great dividend, and I might create a portfolio specifically based on dividend stocks in the near future to further amp up my portfolio strategy.

Is It Worth Buying 10 Shares Of AMC Stock Right Now?

Is it worth buying 10 shares of AMC stock right now?

AMC Entertainment stock (AMC) has taken over the financial world. AMC stock is up nearly 3000% and it hasn’t even squeezed yet. The stock is currently trading at $51.96 per share.

Perhaps you’ve been debating whether you should get in and purchase something. Don’t feel bad if fear of missing out is kicking in. Here’s what you need to know.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Lets get started!

Despite the desperate attempts from the manipulative media to divert the public from buying AMC stock, new retail investors continue to educate themselves.

Disclaimer on the home page, I am not a financial advisor. Why would anyone want to be a financial advisor any when most don’t even follow their own advise. With that being said, I have a passion for guiding people. If there’s an opportunity on the horizon then I will share it with you.

It is up to you whether you want to take it or not. AMC Entertainment stock is that opportunity at the moment.

Will AMC stock keep going up?

I just recently published an article on the technical setup that shows us the support levels that will take AMC to $100 per share. This post goes over the levels of resistance the stock will need to break in order to continue surging.

Zoom out to the monthly chart and you’ll notice that AMC stock has had a very bullish run based on what seems to be merely volume. Retail investors are buying the stock to squeeze short sellers out of their positions.

This event is what is known as a short squeeze. A short squeeze could skyrocket this stock beyond comprehension. How high can AMC stock go? Retail investors will have to hold their positions long enough to find out.

What you need to know before buying AMC stock

I published a list for new retail investors on 6 things they need to know about holding AMC stock. In short, they are:

  1. To detach your emotions from this stock trade
  2. Shun negative people
  3. Hedge funds are playing dirty
  4. Don’t invest more than you can afford to lose
  5. Share positive content and due diligence to help new retail investors
  6. Be patient

I’ve been buying and holding AMC stock since early February. I’ve seen the price go up from $5 to where it’s currently trading. And although at some point I was under $9K (on paper), I’m now up close to 6-figures.

BUT, I’m not cashing in. That’s because my conviction in the stock is #AMCSTRONG.

The AMC community is holding for many reasons. Everyone has a story. And the beautiful thing about this movement is that the data tells us there’s no ceiling as to how high this stock can go.

How much is 10 shares of AMC stock worth?

AMC’s stock price as of July 5th is worth $51.96. This means you 10 shares will cost you $519.60. This is the average cost of a car payment today.

Where will your investment be when AMC is trading at $100 per share? Your 10 shares will be worth $1,000.

So, is it worth buying 10 shares of AMC stock?

Considering you can double your money short term, this might be a good trade for the novice retail investor. However, you must know that if hold the stock, you might just be able to make a life changing trade.

The AMC community is not planning to cash in at $100 per share. No, the community is riding this out for the short squeeze where the potential is well above 4-figures and beyond.

I’m personally building capital to multiply in AMC before it goes to $100 per share. However, I will not be pulling any investment out until short sellers have been squeezed from their positions.

If you’re an AMC shareholder, not only do you own the biggest movie theater company in the world, but you hold a very valuable ticket to financial freedom.

What are the risks of investing in AMC Entertainment?

The number one risk is always never taking the risk. This of course is merely my opinion. And that of many highly successful individuals but you can make this assessment for yourself.

If you’ve been watching the stock for quite some time but haven’t gotten in, your risk increases as the stock price increases. Your chances of making significantly more money on this trade decreases by a bit.

If you plan on getting in on AMC for this 9/10 squeeze potential rating by Fintel then you don’t have much to worry about regarding entry price. Just try to buy on a red (discount) day or during a dip.

AMC short squeeze score fintel

The only scenario where you lose money is if you get in on AMC stock at $60 for example, it drops down to $55 and you take your money out because this small drop scared you.

This is not the way it’s played. The market does this, it goes up and goes down. AMC is currently bullish despite the high consolidation at the moment. It’s nature at the moment is to trend upwards.

If you’re a seasoned ape reading this article, you’ll have to identify whether buying 10 shares at this price is going to make a difference to your portfolio. It may not be a lot of shares from a glance but it a few thousand can add up.
