I’m not buying for the appreciation in the stock price itself but for the passive income stream that the dividends would provide. The way I see it, even if the stock price remains relatively constant, I will continue to earn 3% or so as an income stream. That works for me.

You have to see how things play out over the longer term. Two months is just too short of time period to make a solid conclusion.

I think it’s all complete hogwash that the analysts are any better than anyone else in picking stocks. When you analyze data over long periods of time (20 – 30 years), all of the analysts perform incredibly poorly. Who cares if they hit a slam dunk over a 2-3 month period?

If they really were great at picking stocks for the long term, do you think they would publish that information to you and me for free? Of course not, they’d keep it to themselves and get wealthy. Analyst are there for one reason – to increase churn and turn us into traders vs. investors!

I’m with Holly – long term boring market index funds are the best way to go to build your wealth :-)

What product or service is being sold? Thanks!

Shares can go up and down day by day.

Aside from all the stock metrics and analysts opinions, I’ve always felt a key criteria in selecting an individual stock is to buy one you know. In other words, one in which you understand the business model and how the company makes their money. If someone asks me “What does Apple or Ebay do…how do they make their money?” I could easily tell them.
