My Next Life-Changing Stock Pick? I Think So..
What happens to batteries from phones, electric vehicles, power tools, etc. at the end of their life? Up until 2017, virtually nobody was recycling or recovering the precious metals found in end-of-life lithium ion batteries. Instead, companies paid huge dumping fees to convert these batteries to waste. In a world where the materials needed to create batteries are scarce and in high demand, this makes no sense. Fortunately, companies like Li-Cycle (NYSE:PDAC) identified this problem and got to work.
How To Make Your Largest Asset Work for You
For most people, their mortgage payment is the largest recurring debt payment they make each month. But what if, instead of needing to earmark part of your take home pay for that, your house paid for the mortgage itself? Anything left over after the mortgage payment comes to you as a bonus.
Meet My $50,000 Penny Stock Investment | Interview w/ Creatd CEO Jeremy Frommer
Being a creator and public figure myself, I was able to see what Vocal already provides, and what it could become.

10 High Growth Stocks Down 30%+ To Buy NOW!
After months of high flying growth stocks setting new all-time highs, we have finally seen valuations come down for many stocks, specifically ones in the Nasdaq. Like many predicted, funds and institutional investors alike have flooded back into the safe, defensive stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), and out of tech stocks in the Nasdaq. Just yesterday, the DJIA was up 306.14 points (0.97%), while the Nasdaq was down 310.99 points (-2.41%). This sort of 'breather' was much needed for the Nasdaq, which has seen almost 100% return since the lows in March of 2020.

I heard a quote once from Nate Obrien, a personal finance videographer, that went like this: "If you invest in a company, you are saying the market price is wrong."
The Forgotten SPAC Stock
SPACs, or Special Purpose Acquisition Companies have been very popular among retail investors. After all, they've seemed like a foolproof way to make money. Although a bad example after they were discovered to be fraudulent, Nikola Motors (NKLA Stock) brought the frenzy to SPAC investing.

I believe this has presented a great buying opportunity for the company.
How Groupthink and FOMO Influenced GameStop
Imagine you are in a cattle chute with thousands of people. Everyone is pushing forward. Some look worried. Others are excited. You are not sure what you are doing. You can barely see, but it seems like the people in the far distance are disappearing into thin air. This starts to worry you, but you ignore your concerns. Wouldn’t they come back if something was wrong? Why would so many people be behind you if this wasn’t a good idea?

CleanSpark Reports Another Record Breaking Quarter
CleanSpark Inc. (NASDAQ:CLSK) reported Q1 earnings before the bell this morning. Revenue more than doubled year-over-year, to $2.3 million.

Hedge Funds, Reddit, and GameStop: is Fintech democratizing Finance?
Quite a fascinating story that unfolded over the past weeks. A finance drama from films like The Big Short. David vs Goliath in the trading world with a “Rich against poor” vibe. An amazing saga to start 2021. Here is a quick recap if you have not followed. Which is particularly hard since everybody is talking about it. Also, why it actually matters for fintech. In a nutshell, a group on the social media platform Reddit is taking on hedge funds. It is called WallStreetBets, and it is not a couple of guys in their moms' basement.
