  1. A little confused, so when company A acquires another company, they just issue some new stock? Isn't this sort of pulling money in the thin air? Theoretically they can acquire whole lots of companies just by issuing new stock and don't have to actually pay anything?

  2. Don’t be deceived by the scammers,I’m just a beginner and I met mr Greg Jordan in an online seminar where he teaches people how to trade which he guided me with a super and amazing strategy and I am able to make $33,280 last week he is a super mentor I'll highly recommend you contact him on gregj8430@gmail.com✅if you are a beginner or have been blowing your account he is very honest he will help you perfectly for free he gave me cool lectures privately

  3. The major challenges investors face may range from controlling impulsiveness to the frail of compulsion. Most newbies and would-be investors often undermine and often neglect the importance of technical analysis with regards to trading. Technical analysis overly predicts the movement of asset prices regardless of what is happening in the wider or broader market. Essentially, the process involves studying the parts of a particular asset movement in the past so as to establish a sustainable pattern that can be used to predict future movements.
