Hello TPU. I am finally entering the stock market this year and am quite surprised at the lack of discussion surrounding stocks like Intel, AMD, Qualcomm, Time Warner, etc. Where would be an appropriate place to discuss such topics?

I am torn between investing in AMD vs. Intel. I am aware of Ryzen, Kaby Lake, 5G, VR, list goes on. Would love to hear some feedback from members who are veteran or novice stock share holders and investors.

Sorry, am I missing something, what is so funny about investing in the stock market? Based on my observations, if you invest in the right stock, at the appropriate time, you have a good chance of doing well in the market. And I'd say LOL @ the British Pound; however, Brexit saved your country.

Speaking as a former investor of sorts... (cryptocurrency, but some things are all the same)

The first thing you must do (and this is not up for debate if you want to do well) is absolutely become emotionally detached from your investments. Comments like "Brexit saved your country" tell me you aren't thinking like that. An investor doesn't care if Brexit saved or wrecked Britain, he watches the ups and downs and will buy low, sell high. His question will be not if Brexit will save Britain, but rather if he should jump on the opportunity of the lowered pound (everyone knew it would drop) and furthermore if the pound will ever bounce back to recoup on an investment.

A bit of a strained analogy, but again, you shouldn't be asking for advice on stocks on a forum full of tech fanboys. Sorting emotion from it will be impossible.

Just some friendly advice from someone who failed to do the above, and was virtually ruined for it.

There are plenty of forums/boards out there that discuss investment/stocks etc, to be fair they are probably much better than we would be on this topic...... this is a tech site, thread closed.
