Well, this one will surprise you folks. Of that I'm certain.
Today's free money recipient is Craig, who emailed me a few days ago and asked for money to invest in a particular company listed on one of the major stock indexes.
Given the up and down (mostly down) nature of the market in the last month, you might think this sounds like a ridiculous idea. Well, I never said your request for free money had to make perfect sense or even be logical. But in all reality, I think that Craig has the right idea.
I don't know a lot about investing. But I do know that the old saying "buy low, sell high" makes a lot of sense. If the market is down and you've had your eye on a particular company that has a good business but whose stock has been hit hard by a volatile market, it only makes sense that you'd want to jump in and buy when the price is at its lowest. Its a good business decision and a smart move.
So Craig, I'm sending you a money order for $125. I'll add your stock ticker to my "watch" list and keep an eye on things to see if you have success with your investment.
For the rest of you, keep those requests coming! Maybe I'll find a little money for you to invest too.
