So, you have decided it is time to get in on the investing game. Rest assured, you are not alone.
Since November, investors have parked $569 billion into global equity funds. For some context of how popular investing has become, this is far more than the total of the last 12 years – $452 billion flowed into stock-based funds between 2009 and 2020.

HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. (WTVD) — A man who spent years giving back to his Wake County town now needs your help.
Rick Leach is a former sergeant with the Holly Springs Police Department who spent years as a school resource officer. He has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis which causes scarring and damage in the lungs.

Market rotation malaise has infected many investors. Last year, the growth stocks in the Nasdaq-100 index trounced the staid giants in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It’s been a different story so far in 2021, though. The big money appears to be moving into so-called “risk-off” stocks.
As a result, many of the high-flyers from just a few months ago are now stuck in the doldrums. Some are even down more than 30% from their peaks set earlier this year. There’s a silver lining in this dark cloud, however: Quite a few stocks with strong growth prospects are available

Growth stocks have been pummeled recently. While this is partly evidenced by the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite‘s 6% slide since Feb. 13, this doesn’t fully capture the beating many growth stocks have taken since the Nasdaq isn’t comprised entirely of growth stocks. Many growth stocks have fallen even further during this period.
While sell-offs are painful for shareholders, investors should keep in mind that lower prices lead to greater long-term prospects (assuming nothing has changed about the underlying business’ long-term potential). In fact, this pullback has created buying opportunities in some growth stocks. Two that are looking particularly attractive are
In the stock market, appearances can be deceiving. Securities that seem to be on an unstoppable upward trajectory can sometimes be rising for all the wrong reasons. However, some companies deliver juicy stock market gains for all the right reasons — because their businesses look to be on a path to long-term success in an industry ripe for growth.
