Welcome to Day 4 of the Build Your Watch List series!

Today's industry: Shipping and Storage

You probably see companies in this industry every day and don't think twice about them! Shipping and storage companies seem to do fairly well no matter the economy so they are definitely worth looking at.

Today's tasks:

  • Look up at least two companies in the shipping and storage industry

  • Check in with your accountability partner or group to share what you've found

In case you need it again, here's the video on how to research each industry and stock. You can watch it here.



When picking stocks for trading:

  • pick stocks that move at least $1 or more per day

  • pick stocks priced at $20 or more

When picking stocks for investing:

  • pick stocks of companies that have been around for a long time and will continue to be around for even longer, classics

  • pick companies that are seen as solid and well ran
