What stock should I invest in and why?

notice what you see going on around you. watch what people buy and notice what they're excited about. read the news and see what's going on in the world. read about what's going on in medical research, the military, pharmacology, cannabis, etc. when you find a stock symbol, use Yahoo Finance to learn about it. use the tabs to find out who else is buying it, the conversations about it, and it will give you a list of other companies that are similar.

none, the stock market will probably crash if I broke math.

Totally depends on your investment goals, risk perimeters, other investments, etc. For general wealth building for those starting out I recommend building positions in 10 blue chip dividend paying companies with a history of raising dividends before investing in anything more speculative. The S&P Dividend Aristocrat (etc) lists are a great starting point.

"What goes up must come down. Spinnin' wheel got to go 'round. Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin. Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin." - from Blood, Sweat & Tears, 1968.Prepare for a large decline. Stock prices are overvalued and the US economy is built on success at the top which is unsustainable. Decide about your risk tolerance and as a Las Vegas resident, if you don't realize it's gambling, don't buy any. My own estimated risk decline on a 30% stock market value crash is about
(6.4% x 30%) + (5.2% x 10%) + (29.6% x 20%) + (58.8% x 1%) = about 9%

Stocks that are less volatile and that are not
Over priced and have enthusiasm as they
Regularly show weekly slow gains. They should
Grow gradually through out the year and pull
Back at the end of the year due to IRS income tax Reasons. Stocks that have declined all
Year should be avoided. Stocks that show no
Enthusiasm like ford should be avoided. Look
For consistent growth and little volatility or
Sharp rises and falls in stock prices. I collect
The names of stocks scrolled across the tv
Screen on mad money that show a good increase in gains and check to see how it has
Performed this year. If it is as I have outlined
I will buy it at it's yearly low. How much you
Buy if a private business area. That is your
Business and should not be discussed with
Anyone. Good luck.
