The live nation market has been booming since the presidential election.
But if you’re in the market, there are some questions you should ask before buying and selling.
Live Nation CEO, Michael Rapaport, has made a list of questions to keep in mind before you start buying stocks and bonds.
Here’s what you need to know.1.
Are there more options than stocks?
Rapaports point out that stocks and bond markets are not equal.
There are many companies with a strong financial foundation, but that doesn’t mean they will outperform a company that is struggling.
A company that has a strong balance sheet may have some upside but not nearly as much as a company with a weak balance sheet.
If you’re buying and you have money on the sidelines, that could give you an edge.2.
Are they in a better place?
Rapaports says the market is getting closer to an equilibrium and investors are not buying stocks because they’re worried about a recession.
This is why stocks and Bonds are trending lower.
But there are many other factors that could have the same effect.
Rapoport says stocks and Bond are at an all-time low.3.
What are the trends?
Rapoports point to a slowdown in the global economy, the fact that the Fed is spending more than it makes and that the housing market is cooling.
But he also points to other factors.
He says the Dow is now down more than 200 points and the S&P 500 has dropped more than 60 points.
The Nasdaq is down as much over 100 points.
He points out that the U.S. dollar is up over 30% over the past month.4.
How much do I need to buy?
Rapacort says you need more than $1,000 of wealth to make a strong case for owning stocks.
You don’t need $100,000, but $1 million or $2 million.
If your net worth is over $1.2 million, you can still be good at investing.5.
Are stocks cheap?
If you have more than a few hundred dollars in the portfolio, you’re likely to be better off buying stocks.
If the portfolio has less than $100 in it, you may need to invest more.
If it has more than that, you need at least $1 trillion.6.
How to make sure you’re saving enough?
If your portfolio has more money than you need, you could end up with a lot of debt.
That’s a problem because the U,S.
Treasury, Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and others have all gone into default in recent years.
Rapacort warns that a good investment strategy is to start small.
That way, you have enough to save if things go wrong.7.
Is there a downside?
Rapancourt says stocks are still cheap, but the market may get more expensive as investors are more cautious.
If that happens, the risk may be even higher than if stocks were cheap.
