Stocks Double All The Time

Did you know that $1000 Invested one time, if it returns 100% a year would be worth over $1,000,000 in 10 years? Here is how it breaks down

Start $1,000

End of Year 1 $2,000

End of Year 2 $4,000

End of Year 3 $8,000

End of Year 4 $16,000

End of Year 5 $32,000

End of Year 6 $64,000

End of Year 7 $128,000

End of Year 8 $256,000

End of Year 9 $512,000

End of Year 10 $1,024,000

That is doubling your money every year.

Of course that scenario doesn't include taxes etc.. However if you had a 401K you wouldn't get taxed on it.

Maybe you have seen that before but that shows that the person with a Long term strategy can make a great deal of money from not a big investment. 100% a year isn't a lot when we are talking about HYIP investments but how many of those are going to last 10 years as well? NONE

Did you know a good percentage of Stocks double each year? I just did some quick research on this with the newspaper. I opened up the Stock Market section for the Nasdaq/AMEX. I decided to check the 52 week high and 52 week low for some stocks. What I was searching for is how many stocks under a certain letter were at least double from its 52 week low. In other words for a stock like "Hansen" (I have NO IDEA WHAT THEY DO OR ANY INFO ON THEM THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE) This company (Hansen) had a 52 week HIGH of $44.25 and 52 week Low of $8.51 and was trading above $44. So from the low of $8.51 to the high that is over 5x increase. Point being their are a LOT of stocks that move up 100% in a year, Hansen moved up 400%+!

I did research on a few different letters. (I only looked at letters that had a small # of companies just to show you the research. I didn't want to do like the letter "S" which would have hundreds of companies)

I did the letters "H", "J", "O", and "XYZ". In my paper the letter "H" had 33 companies listed for the Nasdaq/Amex of those 33 companies 16 of them had a 52 week hi/low difference of at least 90%. 17 of the companies did not.

The letter "J" had 9 companies that had a 52 week hi/low of 90% or better, and 5 companies that did not. The letter "O" had 27 companies that had a 52 week hi/low of 90% or better and only 15 companies that didn't. The letters "XYZ" had 17 companies with a 52 week hi/low of better than 90% and 6 that did not.

So of those 6 letters listed above companies under those letters had companies with a 52 week hi/low of 90% or better 69 times and not 43 times.

My point of this is MANY stocks each year double in value no matter what the overall stock market does. All you need is to find 1 a year that can double. That could go from .50 cents to $1. Or $5 to $10 or $20 to $40. You ONLY need 1 stock!

One stock I mentioned on our Alley Cat Trading Newsletter went from .26 cents back in late November to almost $1 in early January. That more than doubled in less than 2 months!The stock was CYGX. I am sure there are many stock trading newsletters online and off. Do some research on them and the companies they recommend. Remember you only need 1 good stock a year. You could very well have a situation like with CYGX where it doubled in a very short time You take your profits and go hunting for the next stock. You don't always have to be in a trade. If that trade took you 2 months you are 10 months ahead of schedule take your time to find the next stock that could turn. Maybe that stock ends up taking 14 months to double.

Find Job Online, To Make Money from Home Whats Right for You?

Whether its the crammed cubicle, aggravating boss, annoying co-workers or maybe just your desire for more freedom, both financially and hourly, youve come to the right review. It is possible to find a job online and start making money from home. Just follow my simple tips and you can make your dream of working from home a reality.

There are so many lies and tricks out there, especially if youre trying to find a legitimate work from home opportunity. Dont be turned off or run away when your first search doesnt turn up anything but scams. On the other hand dont be too trusting when it comes to any get rich quick scheme, even when they tell you therere not. Remember the golden rule when it comes to searching for a job from home, If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

With that in mind decide what you want to do. There are so many opportunities, no matter what you decide you like to do, or want to do; you can find something to match it. The goal isnt to leave your current job you hate to find a new job from home and still hate it!

Do you like meeting/talking to people? Do you like sales? Do you like to work on the computer? Do you want to be employed by someone else or are you ok taking the responsibilities that come with being self employed, like taking care of your own taxes? There are many things to consider, but dont worry, you might have to try a few things to find out what you like or dislike.

If you are ok with meeting and talking to people, there are several customer service or sales based jobs that can be found online. There are so many industries that hire outside agents. Some examples would be real estate, multi-level marketing, telemarketing, travel agent, personal training and much more. Most of the time, area-specific training is required and possibly a certificate or test is needed to work in that field. These can all be achieved online from your respected company and or organization.

If you were interested in working for yourself, by yourself, you can find many jobs online. These jobs would involve different industries or services online. Some examples of computer based jobs are paid surveys online, data entry, affiliate marketing or even selling products wholesale. Depending on what you decide to do online, determines your needed level of expertise. You might have to do things like running a website, dealing with customers, or even researching a product, but usually no degree or certificate is required.

My personal recommendation would be finding a job that works for you online. Most jobs Ive discovered online allow you to make money for a long time off your initial efforts. Having been in the customer service field for a number of years as a personal trainer, theres always a limit on your freedom and income. You have to work to make money and you have trade time to work, so you compromise both freedoms. See, by trading a specific amount of time for a specific amount of money, you can only do so much. If you decide to do something online you will have more time to do what you need to do, and the possibility of an unlimited amount of earnings.

Whatever you decide to try, give it everything youve got. See if its right for you and if it doesnt work, move on. Dont ever give up; it might only take a few weeks to see if something is right for you, but it will take about three months of hard work before the right thing starts to work for you. So do NOT give up! Thats what separates people that succeed from people that fail, as long as you keep giving it an honest effort if can work for you!

For me working from home is the only way to go. I must set my own goals, work my own hours and most importantly write my own paycheck. I can not understand giving my time to someones vision just to make them more money; I wont ever do that again. I walked away from corporate America a long time ago and I couldnt be happier working from home.

Thats why I take a personal interest in helping anyone seeking the freedom that Ive been able to discover. If you found this article helpful or would like more advice or reviews of legitimate work from home opportunities visit
