Luckbox Presents: One investor’s wild meme-stock ride

A veteran trader counsels a protege in an episode of Money Makeover. Investor Brian benefitted immensely from WallStreetBets, a popular online forum where traders share tips and discuss potential “investments.”

Brian turned his modest poker earnings into a staggering $1 million in less than 18 months. But then things went wrong. Brian invested heavily in a telecommunications company and found himself on the losing end when the company filed for bankruptcy. The experience served as a stark reminder of the volatile nature of trading. Watch the video below.

Another AI stock to consider

AI investing is about more than owning Nvidia (NVDA) stock. Shares of UiPath (PATH) are up sharply in 2023 because the company’s robotic process automation (RPA) services are viewed as fertile ground for recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI).

These digital robots are essentially software-based “bots” that help automate business processes. Recent market research indicates UiPath controls roughly 36% of the robotic process automation market.

U.S. retail sales drop, but not at Walmart

Retail sales in the United States recently dropped for the first time in 7 months. Despite those headwinds, Walmart (WMT) posted impressive third-quarter sales growth, including a 24% increase in online sales. Walmart’s revamped digital strategy, alongside the company’s demonstrated ability to increase sales during economic downturns, makes the stock especially attractive. Read the whole story.
