How to Become a Millionaire
Good advice from Ben at A Wealth of Common Sense,
“For most people, your best bet is making more money over time, saving a decent chunk of that income, investing wisely, and getting out your own way.”
But there are some significant pitfalls to avoid both on the way and once you’ve got there. Learn how to avoid them.
Why has the IPO market gone quiet again?
via Short Squeez
The weeks before Thanksgiving usually bring a spate of large IPOs eager to go public before the holiday season starts.
Except nothing is happening.
How much do you need to retire?
There’s an ironclad law when it comes to saving for retirement — figure out how much you want to spend every year, then get 25x that than that in the bank.
Crypto Is Cooking – And Looking Delicious
via Daily Dough
There’s now a 90%+ chance that a Bitcoin ETF gets approved, and that’s sent the price of Bitcoin through the roof.

🧠 Stock ideas
Let’s check in with Yellowbrick Road, which highlights 15 stocks every week. Here are my three favourites.

Remember to always DYOR.
Following the release of PayPal’s Q3 2023 results, the company’s shares experienced an 8.6% increase in two days, although they are down nearly 25% year-to-date and more than 80% from their 2021 peak.
Estee Lauder ($EL)
Estée Lauder (EL) shares dipped by 18.9% on November 1, following Q1 FY24 results, but rebounded 7% to $112 on November 2. Despite a 70% decline since 2021 end, EL maintains a 20.4x P/E based on FY19 EPS and a 2.4% Dividend Yield.
NatWest’s Q3 2023 results triggered a 14% share price decline, mainly due to fears surrounding Net Interest Margin (NIM), which fell from 3.27% in Q1 to 2.94% in Q3, impacting the Return on Tangible Equity (ROTE) which dropped from around 20% in Q1 to 14.7% in Q3. Despite this, the bank’s strong customer relationships and economies of scale are expected to support better NIM and ROTE compared to competitors.
That’s it for this week.
