Do you tithe, what are your thoughts about it?🤔

A tithe is giving a 10th of your income to God...we see the 1st example as Abram giving a 10th to the priest Melchizedek. We also see references throughout the Old & New Testament about it.

Here are 10 things to consider...

🧵
1⃣ It's no longer about 10%

Tithing is no longer about a percentage but its about where you place money in your relationship with God. Jesus highlighted the widow who gave out of her poverty because it was about her heart vs how much she gave.
2⃣Prayerfully ask how much to give

Some give consistently 10% to their church, however, they neglect other ways they can give - to their family, to the needy, or as the Lord leads. Seek the Lord as to the right amount in each season.

#StockstoWatch from GK Capital as at June 28, 2021

Here's how to interpret this watch list...

Source: files.constantcontact.com/6b59398d601/c5…
1⃣ Price - market price for the stock as at that date.

This information can also be seen on @jastockex website under market data here: jamstockex.com/market-data/ma…
2⃣ P/E - Price to Earnings Ratio. Shown as times.

Example $GHL.Ja is trading at 7.22X Price to Earnings. It's calculated by dividing Share Price by Earnings Per Share.

7.22X is considered low versus 33.90X for $DTL.Ja might be considered high (comparably). Context is important

⚠️How well can you read Analyst Reports?⚠️

Here are some terms you are likely to see in the next stock or market overview from your broker.

Buy - the security is likely to provide short term upside

Sell - the security is likely to see a short term correction or is seen as overvalued

Hold - the security is likely to either move sideways in price or not move much from current price
2⃣ Overvalued/Undervalued

Overvalued - the current market price is seen is higher than the broker's calculated intrinsic value of the security.

Undervalued - the current market price is seen as lower than the calculated intrinsic value.

Note: this usually differs per broker

🚨Highlights from the Session with @simplifyingfin over on IG🚨

Title: Before You Invest

🧵
1. Have a Spending Plan (Budget)

This provides room to invest consistently. Without getting a handle on spending you won't be able to invest as much as you need to achieve your investment goals.

2/
2. Build Your Emergency Fund

Save enough to cover unplanned or emergency expenses. This will prevent you from selling Investments too early to cover unplanned expenses.

What are some of the ways you can use debt to invest?

Is it a good idea to use debt to invest?

What are some of the considerations to have when using debt?

Let's look at some of the answers to these questions from our last meeting with @anandchokkavelu from @themotleyfool

🧵
Let's start by defining margin...

Margin is the money borrowed from a broker to purchase an investment. This is usually a $ of your overall portfolio and your existing securities are used as collateral for the loan/margin.

1/
The use of margin can amplify gains, however, it can also amplify losses.

@anandchokkavelu shares the perspective that many do not consider enough the disadvantages to margin in considering the risk of their portfolio going in the opposite direction when using margin.

Here are some tips to help you take control of your finances, increase savings and manage debt

These tips may not work for every situation, however, can be adapted to suit each persons needs

Thread

1/
Tip #1 - Start a Budget

You probably guessed this first one. It's obvious, it works but many are not sure how to start and how to remain consistent. A budget doesn't mean you are perfect with your spending...it means you consistent track and measure where your money goes

2/
cont'd...

If you spend more than budgeted, think about why it happened and try to put measures in place to stop the habit or mitigate against the decision for the next month.

Also, look for patterns of spending that represent opportunities for savings.

🚨 Beginner Mistakes to Avoid In the Stock Market 🚨

Experience is no doubt the greatest teacher, however, there are some mistakes you want to be aware of as a new investor.

Watch out for the following mistakes and tell us if you have made any of them...

Thread

1/
Mistake #1 - Not Understanding What You're Buying

A #stock represents part ownership of a listed company. When you own it you should treat it as you would a business that you're now a shareholder. This means you should manage your portfolio as a list of companies you own

2/
Mistake #2 - Not Doing Any/Enough Research

Imagine being successful in the Stock Market and not knowing why. Sounds weird? This happens to a lot of new investors who BUY because someone else told them to BUY or they inferred from a post on social media
