I’m a big proponent of investing in the future. The money we have saved, or invested in the stock market, can be used to cover medical bills, buy a house and a car, pay for college, pay for college tuition, pay for a down payment on a home, pay for college textbooks, and so forth. This is just one example of how we’re able to use our money to create a better future through these investments.
But there is another way of doing this, and that is by investing in the stock market. In fact, a study by Bank of America found that investors can actually use the stock market to reduce their taxes. The Bank of America study showed that investors who owned stock between the years 2000 and 2009 received a tax refund of $3,821 a year in 2009 and $5,914 in 2010. The tax refund was generated purely from stock investment.
I don’t know how many of you have been reading our stories for the past few months, but I’m sure you didn’t expect to see one of the best parts of our recent Kickstarter campaign: The Swell Yearbook.
In the Swell Yearbook we have two case studies in which investors made money from their stock investments. The first example was by a family in the U.S. who purchased 4.5 million shares of Home Depot stock in the year 2000. They saw their taxes go up, but in the end, they got a tax refund of over 10 million dollars (as opposed to the 3 million dollar tax refund they had anticipated).
A simple way to look at that is to say that a company can be expected to make money in the short term. A company can’t make money forever. A company needs to be making money. If there are too many people sitting on the stock, then people are buying it up and not selling it. The “short” is just a way of saying that companies make money by taking in a small amount of funds that are invested into a company.
Of course, this isn’t true in all companies; in fact, many companies make money by buying and reselling stocks. The amount of stock is irrelevant to the amount of money. If your company makes money, then you probably need to make money.
The main reason why companies are making money is to make more money. Just like a carpenter’s son, you also need to get more money out of the building. Of course, the most efficient way to do this is to buy a car, and then have it run the factory. The carpenter who buys a car has the right to run the factory, but is also the guy with a car. The carpenter who buys a car is the carpenter who gets the money.
A new carpenter who buys a car has a lot of information. He knows who owns the car and what is on the car’s title. He understands how to get a loan and has a strong understanding of the building business. He also knows how to buy a car from various dealers. He knows the company he is buying the car from, and how to move money around. All of this is very useful knowledge for a new carpenter.
Why does a carpenter need a car? To get a car up and running.
The carpenter who buys a car needs to do a lot of other things to get a car up and running and make sure it is in good condition. The carpenter who buys a car also needs a lot of other things to get the car to be in good condition. So there is a lot of information that a new carpenter needs to know about how to get a car up and running.
