StockGravity.com was founded in 2008 as a free educational website dedicated to identifying quality investments. We employ nearly all types of strategies – both long and short term investments. We also use all vehicles of trading including common stock, options, (LEAPS) and selling short.
Unlike some other financial websites, authors of our site frequently put their own hard earned money into the investments they write about. This very fact forces our authors to handle investment ideas with a high degree of responsibility and integrity. Members of our site give full disclosure of securities mentioned in publications and rarely comment on low-priced or low-float stocks. If you are interested in trading “penny stocks” you should go with the best and visit TimothySykes.com pennystocking website.
What is Stock Gravity?
Although we coined the term first, LearningMarkets.com best describes its meaning with the following:
Stock-market gravity is known by many names—negative investor sentiment, lack of confidence in the system, panic, depression and a whole host of other fun terms. Regardless of the term you use, market-gravity is the phenomenon that causes all stocks, even healthy ones, to lose value because investors are selling anything and everything in the belief that the entire market is going down. Unfortunately, it is typically the belief that the entire market will be going down that causes people to sell stocks, which in turn, ends up causing the entire market to go down.
Long Term Philosophy
1) Discover undervalued stocks with lucrative dividend potential. Moreover, identify stocks with a history or capacity for increasing dividends over the long term – particularly foreign dividend paying stocks.
2) Identify companies with the ability to grow from global revenue streams and companies who will benefit from the process of globalization.
3) Diversify out of the US Dollar and Euro into stable asset classes. Position capital in companies operating in emerging countries with appreciating currencies and real economic growth.
Our friends over at Profit.ly have come up with a niche website aimed at market transparency. The website has the role of weeding out the bad traders and giving credit to the successful ones. Our short term trades (non-retirement/IRA) are posted and verified through Profit.ly’s system. They also created a neat little widget (shown to the right) that streams our trades onto our website within 24-hours. This creates fair disclosure for all of our readers. Here is what Profit.ly has to say:
Studies suggest 90% of traders lose and 70% of professional mutual fund managers fail to beat the S&P 500 each year and yet there are thousands of “gurus”, traders and investors who claim to be consistently profitable. But who is ACTUALLY profitable? It’s time to put up or shut up. Just like Investimonials does for financial products, Profit.ly aims to discover the best traders and investors and weed out the worst.
