Ask a Stupid Question…

Have an investment-related question, and embarrassed to not know the answer? A question about what the heck Stock Gumshoe does? Today's your lucky day!

Have a question in mind that you think is so dumb you’re embarrassed to ask it?  That’s what we’re here for today!

This bonus post was inspired by a reader who wanted to know “where to ask a dumb question” here on Stock Gumshoe… and while his question was not actually stupid, and I’m happy to see questions pop up in our comment threads anywhere on the site, I thought it would be a great idea to open the floor and be more welcoming for the shy, the embarrassed, or, yes, even the uninformed.

So this is a no-judgement zone… smart people do things we’d call “dumb” all the time: Warren Buffett didn’t invest in Google in 2004, Albert Einstein married his cousin, and I just had to go back and double check that I didn’t call him Alfred Einstein (which I’ve done before, in print).  So if you have that question that you can’t ask your stockbroker or your brother-in-law or Twitter without feeling like a dummy, let ‘er rip by submitting it below.  I’ll be nice… and we might all learn something.

And yes, the SEC is always watching, so I must remind you that I can’t give personal investment advice… but I’ll try to share whatever opinion or answers I can provide to any investment-related question you’ve got, though if we end up with a lot of them it might take me a little while to answer thoughtfully.

So please, let your questions fly using the friendly little comment box below… and thanks for being the best readers in cyberspace!

(I will moderate the discussion just to make sure we don’t get too much profanity or offensive stuff, or personal attacks, but I’ll use a light hand — you can be mean to me if you like, just don’t be mean to any other participants.)

The broker will love you. Complex option charges. But the way I understood the webinars, he does all the work. Adjustments etc. he can say he has a great success rate, but how much does he lose when he does?

Awesome idea. I still don’t get crypto currency. Is there an idiots guide out there?

There is a podcast, Invest Like The Best, that has several crypto episodes. It is really informative but will (probably) require multiple listens.

Yes! This would be Hiku. Started by former Google executive Alan Gertner. Alan ‘s business model is a triple threat as he will have growers, accessories, and retail outlets.

Zacks stock services is always teasing their highly rated stock pics – and for exorbitant fees. Have you investigated these gems or not enough clues? Or maybe you did already and I missed it?
Thanks

If you would like Travis to investigate a teaser, just send it to him and request he takes a look,. ilovestockspam@gmail.com. Since there are thousands of people writing though, and only one lovable Travis with his cranky Thinkolator, don’t hold your breath.
