3 Signs It May Be Time To Sell Your Stocks

I find that it is much easier for investors to buy stocks then it is for them to sell. I say this because I have seen investors who hold onto the stock all the way to bankruptcy, or when the stock has made a sizeable gain and the investor still refuses to sell. Some of the thought process that goes on are: They believe the stock still has more room to go up in price so they patiently wait for it to increase further, only to miss out when the stock was at its peak. The stock has dropped and the investor believes that the stock has bottomed out, and it will go up in time, so they continue to hold The stock has dropped so much that by this point, selling it would cause a big loss, so they hold onto the stock in the hopes that one day it could go back up again

Ford Motors The Turnaround Success Story

Ford in its most recent quarter had much to celebrate about. It was its 22nd consecutive pre-tax profit, it reached a record market share in Asia, and the operating results in most global operations have been positive. Spurred by this financial success, Ford had increased its dividends to $0.15 a quarter from $0.13, at a stock price of about $16.17, this was a 3.71% dividend yield. Ford had much to be proud about Going back a little less than a decade ago, Ford Motors was a contrast to what it is today. In 2006, Ford was bleeding cash and its operating loss was a staggering $12.6 billion. This road to a slow financial ruin was a result of poor management, a lack of cohesive product development, and lax cost controls.

3 Rules to Working Successfully With Your Boss

I entered the work force not too long ago. At the time, I was fairly green and fresh out of university. I have to admit, there are a lot of things I wish I had known then, such as building more of a rapport with my colleagues and paying more attention to the office politics. When I started working, I always had a tendency to work by myself, and I liked to do things my way. It took a while before I learned to read situations and how to put myself in my boss's or manager's shoes.

3 Interview Questions Job Applicants Must Always Answer

I attended a speed mentoring event the other night where I was the mentor. Similar to a speed dating format, people ask as many questions as possible within a set time limit. This event was hosted by an employment agency where they help immigrants and the unemployed find a job. When I sat down to listen to the questions they have, a lot of them already have a resume to show me. I was blown away by their work experience and years of industry knowledge. In comparing job experiences, 75% of the people there could have been my boss. Some of the common issues raised were they have the experience but they still struggled in securing a job. Most of them are able to secure the face to face interview, but after that, they do not hear back for a follow up interview.

How to Network for Introverts

I am an introvert at heart and have always been. This doesn't mean an introvert cannot show moments of being an extrovert. I work in the real estate industry that sometimes requires me to go out and network. That means being surrounded by people I may not always know. I still remember sometimes feeling awkward around strangers and I just wanted to leave. I know for some people out there, they feel the same way as I do. The though of just approaching a random stranger and starting up a conversation can be a scary thought. But luckily, any skill can be learned and mastered.

4 Reasons to Never Stop Learning

For the past year I have been working towards a leadership certificate. I took it to expand my skills and keep my resume attractive. After taking some of these courses I realized that these courses were not like the academic courses I took in university. It was not dry material where we had to memorize theories. This class taught more about life lessons and how to respond to challenges in life. I actually enjoyed these classes. It was boring at times but there is something to be learned. So, here are four benefits to continuing education even after those school days are long gone.

The Micro Condo Revolution

If you ever in the market to buy a brand new condo, you will perhaps notice that the condo sizes are becoming increasingly smaller. If you live in Hong Kong or Tokyo, the small apartment sizes are really the norm, but if you live in North America or even Europe, the small spaces are just beginning to catch on Welcome to the micro condo revolution. Perhaps it is not a revolution yet but trends do point to ever decreasing condo spaces in newer condo or apartment builds. A micro condo is a unit that is about 200 - 300 square feet in size. The micro condo certainly has its appeal. For the single professional who does not have a family and wants to live near the urban centre, a micro condo has a lot of advantages. It is definitely cheaper to upkeep and it maximizes smaller spaces. For example, murphy beds can be folded to create room for desk space: This is the result of a crazy condo boom where developers are trying to fit more and more units into one condo development. A broker friend had sent me floor plans of a recent development (occupancy in 2018) and none of the suites had square footage above 1000. Like it or not, this is the new norm for condos in downtown Toronto.
