Hi Wealth Builders!
This week, the indexes ended lower. The main contributing factor to this sell off are the rate hikes. Should you be worried? No. Since we are investing for the long-term, we just have to ride out the short-term fluctuations. Take a deep breath and stay patient 😊.
Here's a look at the 5-day change for ETF's SPY (or the S&P 500), DIA (or the Dow 30), and QQQ (or the Nasdaq 100).
SPY : -2.14%, closed at $466.09
DIA : -0.55%, closed at $362.31
QQQ : -4.8%, closed at $379.86
Mattress Firm 🛏
Mattress Firm files for IPO. This company is a mattress store chain and primarily makes money off of the products they sell. Often times, many investors will invest in IPOs which are very volatile. They typically spike up initially and then sell off. We don't invest in IPOs. Consider revisiting our investing criteria to see what we look for before investing in a company.
Papa John's 🍕
This Pizzaria is planning to bring 1,350 locations to China. This is great news as it will contribute to the growth of the company. Who doesn't love a nice pizza, right?
Jobs Report 👩💻
December's job report demonstrated that the U.S. added 199,000 jobs. Adding jobs is great for the economy as it gives more money to people to spend. However, this is much slower than expected. We would like to see these numbers increase.
