STOCKS ARE DIPPING
We’ve had another strong run up on stock values so investors are taking the opportunity to sell some of their stocks to take some profits.
The minor pullback should be short lived and creates an opportunity to jump in if you haven’t already.
Facebook is having some issues at the moment. I own Facebook stock in the Badass Stock Portfolio and have been watching the situation.
A app that used the Facebook platform took the information they pulled from Facebook users and used it for election data and advertising. Obviously not good. The stock has been dropping a lot.
I still think that Facebook is a solid company and stock due to the continued earnings growth.
In addition, Facebook has huge potential in the future with their acquisition of VR / future AR company Oculus.
I think it’s still a good buy and the dip in value only creates more opportunity.

QUESTION AND ANSWER
Question: What retirement accounts should I be putting my money in?
Answer: This is a great question that applies to everyone.
First off, if you work for a company, make sure you are contributing to the company 401k plan. Also, make sure you are contributing enough to get the full company match.
If you don’t work for a company, you can replace it with a Roth IRA.
Second, even if you do work for a company, make sure you are also investing in a Roth IRA.
Those are the two investment account I highly suggest for everyone to have. 401k and Roth IRA.
Everyone’s circumstances are different so always make sure you review your options and do research as there are circumstances where a IRA would be be better than a Roth IRA.
See you next week!
