Is the US market lagging behind its European counterparts? The answer may surprise you. One of the factors that may have a significant impact on the US market, is the state of the global economy.

    Dow Jones Price Outlook Tied to Earnings as Netflix Soars on Subscriber Bea

One good thing about investing in stocks like Netflix, Microsoft, Apple, etc. is that their profits are not tied to the stock price. As long as the company makes profits, its stock price will stay the same. This is why I personally like Netflix stock. There are always concerns that a company like Netflix, which operates in two different markets, will…

Despite being part of the Eurozone, the Euro has its own set of financial rules and regulations. Its official name is the “European Currency Unit” and it is not subject to any international supervision. This unique status has made the Euro more vulnerable to market forces than other major currencies. The Eurozone economies tend to have relatively high…
