I'm sick to my stomach.I put money in a stock and it went up and I made $12,000 in one day. I held on too long thinking it was going to keep rising and the next day it I panicked and tried to sell quick because it continued to then when I sold it back I lost $1000.I'm New to trading I wish I would of watched some of your videos before I jumped into it .I'm still recovering from that boneheaded move but I'm confident I will learn from that one.

How does the increased demand for pizza shares determine the precise rise of the stock's value ? Why does it go from $5 to $8.50 ? Is it because people are bidding on the right to purchase pizza shares ?

Just a few questions:
Where can I go to discover new up-and-coming companies?

Leo Irizarry says:

Ok, I have a question that has been bothering me for a while. I'm basically just confused as to what affects the stock prices. I know that when a company brings its capital up the stock prices should also increase. It is just like the pizza as a whole. If the pizza is bigger then the slices are also bigger. But I have also heard that the stock prices go up and down because of supply and demand. I understand the concept of that, but how those that connect with the company capital? Do they both affect the stock prices at the same time or am I missing something?

Jitendra Soni says:

I do have a question , as you said it is an investment made by people , suppose I buy a slice in a company A , so I made an investment in it , and than in 1 yr this company grown from $100 m to $1000m . than is there any profit to the investors like me ?
or is this something related only to sell or buy the stocks (slice).
I hope you get my question.

When a someone buys a share, how does the company benefit from it when the person is actually owning a part of the company. And yeah .. when you sell the shares you get the profit and not the company itself. So, how exactly is company benefited ?
