Step Out of Your Investing Comfort Zone: Buying High-Priced Stocks

The latest edition of the Finance Trends Newsletter was sent out to subscribers on Thursday. If you would like to join our free email list and receive new updates, please subscribe via the title link.


Our latest email report, "Going Outside Your Investing Comfort Zone" provides a brief update to this week's Amazon (AMZN) and Google (GOOGL) post. Namely, the question of how to step up to the plate and buy such high-priced stocks as they cross the $100, $200, or even the rarefied $1,000 per share mark.

Now, I am slowly retraining myself to act on my analysis, even when it comes to buying very "high-priced" shares such as AMZN, PCLN, etc. As I remind myself lately, you don't need to take on a very large position, just buy a few shares and participate in the uptrend.
