Investing On Maybe?

Do you believe you would invest on a deal that has a 50/50 chance of working in your favor?

Do you believe in taking risks at all? How careful should one really be
when dealing with a 50/50 chance?

I guess if you can stand to lose the money if things didn't go your way it would be fine, if not better stay away from a deal like that.

Personally the odds wouldn't be good enough for me.

I am not much of a risk taker so only getting 50/50 odds doesn't sound all too appealing to me.

All power to those who do but its not for me.

50/50 is not a deal its a toss of a coin..........I would need an 80/20 b4 I invest.........................you need to see what is already there and look at what is needed..........................



50/50 odds ? you may as well cut the cards. A fools game

A wise man once told me "Never risk more than you can afford to lose."

Words to live by. If this 50/50 "deal" isn't coming out of left pocket, and you wouldn't be inclined to jump off a bridge if it comes up snake-eyes, then go for it. Why not? But if this is money you can't afford to lose, then 50/50 odds is a stupid gamble as it would have a 50/50 chance of screwing up your life.

P.S. 50/50 isn't "investing" it's "gambling", and not even very good gambling at that.

I agree. Don't risk more than you can afford to lose.

50/50 does sound more like gambling. Nothing like at the casinos where the chance of winning the jackpot is 1:1,000,000 or even worse.

Usually investments have market research, a business plan, and things like that. People don't go into it thinking there's a 50/50 chance it could succeed.

If you like I could recommend some good penny stocks with a better than 50/50 chance of rapid growth. If you're happy with 50/50 though, head to the roulette wheel and bet on red. :)

Here's how to invest with better than 50/50 odds and only a few grand.
Find a stock with the following characteristics...

1> Cost less than $5.00 a share (but more than $2.00) on average.
2> Stock price historically fluctuates by at least 15 cents per day (up to 60 cents)
3> Stock price over the past (at least) 2 years hasn't been prone to sharp plunges
4> Company has a high Enterprise value and low debt (preferably none)
5> Earnings per share has remained fairly consistent

Watch the up and down trends day to day and virtual trade on the stock until you get a feel for the up and down patterns. If you can succeed in making virtual money with the stock on a consistent basis then you're ready to start making some real money.

Never invest from left pocket. (Poker term for bill/rent/food money)

P.S. I don't guarantee you will be successful at making money using this scheme, only that your chances of making money will be substantially higher than 50/50. I use an only slightly more advanced system myself and so far so good.
