It … umm … has snow? Feasting? Cozy, festive vibes? The series is a semi-wholesome, heartwarming tale of friendship?

How We Avoided the $800,000 Robinhood Mistake

In late July, Robinhood Markets (Nasdaq: HOOD) went public. Robinhood is a financial services platform that allows users to invest in stocks, exchange-traded funds, options, gold and cryptocurrencies. And it was one of the most highly anticipated initial public offerings (IPOs) of 2021. Just a few days after its IPO, its stock surged more than 24%. But I didn’t like Robinhood’s business model and told Alpha Investors so in March 2021: I’ve never been a fan of Robinhood.

Complexity Can Kill Your Returns

It wasn’t the great, powerful Wizard of Oz that got Dorothy back to Kansas… It was something much simpler: Three clicks of the heels of her ruby slippers. Voilà. Investing works the same way.
