Got any Penny Stocks in Your Portfolio?

Penny stocks typically sell for less than $1.00 per share because they are extremely high-risk investments. But, if, by some stroke of luck, your stock thrives, you stand to earn incredible returns on a penny stock.

For instance, a simple $100 investment buys 200 shares of a penny stock selling at fifty cents per share. If the price rises fifty cents per share to $1.00 per share, you just doubled your investment, earning a 100% return. Your $100 investment is now worth $200. Where else could you do that?

If the stock continues to prosper, you may someday get a stock split which double the number of shares you own while cutting the price per share in half. Then, every fifty cent increase you gain on your (now) 400 shares, earn you $200 in profit rather than the $100 profit you earned on the first 200 shares. While stock splits are not a given, when they occur, they tend to increase your overall profits significantly if you continue to hold the stock you owned before the split.

Many people reserve ten percent of their investment portfolio for riskier investments such as penny stocks. Create a more aggressive investment approach by buying some penny stocks. The best advice in investing in penny stocks is not to invest any money you cannot afford to lose.

Educate yourself. Do your due diligence. As with any investment, proceed with caution. Understand that you risk losing your entire investment when you buy penny stocks. That is the risk you take for creating the possibility of incredibly high returns.

Disclosure: The author is not proposing any particular stocks for purchase and is not suggesting that investing in penny stocks is the right move for all investors. You and you alone are solely responsible for the choices you make when investing your portfolio. Penny stocks are just one of many options, and it falls on the extremely high risk end as investments go.

Have y’all seen that show on MTV called Friendzone? It’s all about people who have crushes on their friends but then tell them so they can see if it will turn into a relationship. I don’t know if it’s a new show or not but I just recently went to where I got some additional channels (Including MTV) so I am not really up to date on what the kids are watching nowadays. Anyway, I think the reason I like this show is because my husband and I were friends for a long time before we started to date so I can really relate to the people on this show and how weird it is to tell your very best friend that you like them. I know it sounds silly but you know, at the end of the day you have to put yourself out there and risk rejection like I did. Here we are now married and we’re happier than we’ve ever been and it all started out with a friendship!

Inside a Radical Polygamist Cult.

by Malinda Winkle

Carolyn Jessop (with Laura Palmer) wrote a book I highly recommend called "Escape". Read an astoundingly-candid account of life in a polygamist cult. At just 18 years old, she became the fourth wife of a 50-year old man--a total stranger--by an arranged marriage. She bore eight children for him during the next fifteen years. She worked as a school teacher and gave all her paychecks to her husband.

With just $20 in her pocket, Carolyn fought a courageous fight to gain freedom for herself and all eight of her children. This is something which had never been done by any woman in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Church (FLDS Church), a split off the Mormon Church. Some wives have left the FLDS, but none have ever managed to get all their children out with them, until Carolyn overcame all the odds.

This true story tells the vivid details of everyday life while sharing her husband with her "sister wives" and attempting to parent her eight children in a home where her husband eventually fathered over 150 children by over 10 wives.

Carolyn's valor led her out of a life of deprivation and subservience. In spite of the horrendous psychological abuse she endured, in spite of have two very sick children at the time of her escape and despite living in great fear of her dictatorial spouse, she made her extraordinary escape. And, yes! There is a happy ending. Highly recommended reading.
