How Covid Revolutionized The Investments Market

2 of 3 Investment App Users Got Started During Covid, Revolutionizing the Market

The fintech revolution is here and investment apps are leading the charge. 

Robinhood, Acorns, Betterment and other apps have simplified the investment process for everyday Americans by removing once-common barriers to access, like complex jargon and high trading fees. 

Investment apps shook up the archaic financial landscape by giving people user-friendly platforms to access the stock market with as little as $5. 

Then came the COVID-19 pandemic, which coincided with economic worries, stimulus checks and growing interest in investing apps and cryptocurrency.

This proved to be a perfect environment for app use to accelerate — especially among new and young investors. In a new survey of nearly 2,000 Americans conducted by The Penny Hoarder, 66% of respondents only began using an investment app in 2020 or 2021, and two out of three said the pandemic led them to become more serious users. 

The Penny Hoarder’s survey found more striking findings about investment app users, who are getting their feet wet in a stock market once roped off for white collars and Wall Street elites. 

  • They’re new to the scene: About half said they had little to no investing experience prior to using an app.
  • They’re starting small: About half of respondents have less than $1,000 invested on an app.
  • They’re using this new access to: Dabble with crypto, fractional shares and meme stocks.
  • Social media is a primary source of investing advice: Most investment app users flock to Facebook and YouTube for investment advice, although 18-to-24-year-olds also heavily favor TikTok and Instagram.
  • Celebrities also hold sway: 44% of all respondents said they would be more likely to invest in a stock if Elon Musk tweeted about it. Among high-income earners — those earning over $150,000 — 67% said they’d be likely to follow Musk’s advice.

Facebook Loses Users Plummeting $200BN: CEO Zuckerberg Blames TikTok

Facebook lost daily users for the first time in its 18-year history. CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes Facebook’s decline in users is likely due to the boom in popularity of the competitor platform TikTok.

Facebook lost daily users for the first time in its 18-year history in the final quarter of 2021, which CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes was caused by the TikTok boom.

The social media giant’s devastating earnings report on Wednesday sent Facebook shares plunging more than 20 percent, wiping more than $200 billion off the company’s market cap and erasing $29 billion from Zuckerberg’s net worth.

Facebook reported a drop of nearly 500,000 in daily logins during the last three months of 2021. 

‘People have a lot of choices for how they want to spend their time, and apps like TikTok are growing very quickly,’ Zuckerberg said during an earnings call Wednesday, according to the Washington Post.

Zuckerberg reiterated that Meta – the company that owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp – is pushing hard to develop its short-form video Reels in an effort to compete with TikTok.

‘This is why our focus on Reels is so important over the long term,’ he added.

Facebook, which now only has 1.93 billion users logging in each day, also saw its shares plunged more than 20 percent in extended trading on Wednesday after unexpectedly heavy spending on its Metaverse project led to a rare decline in its fourth quarter profit.

Meta saw its stock fall 22.6 percent to $249.90 in after-hours trading, wiping about $200 billion off the company’s market value.

The company heavily invested in its Reality Labs segment – which includes its virtual reality headsets and augmented reality technology – during the final quarter of 2021, accounting for much of the profit decline.

Zuckerberg, who is worth approximately $107 billion, held more than 398 million shares of Meta at the end of 2020, according to Investopedia. Based on his reported holdings, the CEO personally experienced a more than $29 billion loss when the company’s stock fell Wednesday.

3 Reasons Why Investing In Las Vegas In 2022 Is Your Best Bet: Crypto, Sports, And Real Estate

When I first heard of this adult-themed entertainment mecca I was a young child. The first images that I had seen were of showgirls in their extravagant headdresses, wearing rhinestones or sequin bikini-themed outfits. On television, their choreographed, in sync movements were classy. It drew you in, and even if you weren’t technically as rich as you looked on vacation, being entertained in that way sure did make you feel wealthy.

I grew to associate Las Vegas with making money. Many think of gambling, slot machines in particular. Aka losing money. Let’s not forget, gentlemen clubs. Giving away money. If these are things that you enjoy, so be it, live it up. But as a young teen, I then knew the probability of me getting rich from a slot machine or learning how to play poker and becoming a champion was slim to none.

I fantasized about having a piece of the pie. My thoughts of Las Vegas’ riches were composed of what it would be like to own a casino. Upon moving to Las Vegas, curiosity struck me and I Googled, “How much is Las Vegas worth?” I laugh now at the fact I thought there would be a direct answer as though there aren’t hundreds of thousands of enterprises connected to the city domestically, and globally.

Growing up in the largest economic state in the United States, California, you can’t criticize me too much for asking the internet such a question. See, my decision to move to Las Vegas wasn’t based on the televised images. Before moving I had been attending Oakland City Hall housing development and cannabis town hall meetings. Upon doing so, I learned much of what citizens were voting on had pretty much been decided years prior. Confirmation that it was then time for me to go.

Not knowing where I wanted to move to in the United States, I made an excel spreadsheet with a list of cities. I compared everything, from the weather, natural disasters, educational systems, pay rates, neighborhoods, racial demographics and anything else I felt was critical to know. I was leaving my sunny California beaches, and forest hiking trails. The waterfalls. The entertainment. The food. The diversity. Wherever I moved had to be worth it.

Las Vegas won. It was decided that I would migrate to Sin City. There was something about the city and its potential that was underway. And, many of my enjoyments could be found within the city or on a nice road trip to a neighboring state.

Let’s Get Into It: Las Vegas Loves Crypto

Fast forward and here were are in the city which is home to the $4.3 billion Resorts World Las Vegas which is also the most crypto-friendly resort around. Even the gentlemen’s clubs here have the understanding that digital money is the way of the future. Making it rain in binary. Bitcoin ATMs can be found in luxury shopping centers such as Trivoli Village, as well as common stores like cell phone repair shops.

Which Sports Game Are You Attending?

Home of the Vegas Golden Knights hockey team, and more recently with the completion of the Allegiant Stadium, now the Raiders NFL team. Las Vegas is no stranger to sports, as there are many genres of athletic teams here. But it’s the popular teams that make the news right? The A’s baseball team is reportedly eyeing the Tropicana hotel property for a possible Strip ballpark. Back in October Adam Silver stated that Las Vegas was on the consideration location list for the NBA expanding. That’s hockey, football, baseball, and potentially basketball all in one city. A guy (or girls) sports entertainment dream come true.

Home Is Where The Heat Is

Real estate is hot and with the increase of all-cash deals, The Treasury Department has included Las Vegas on the list of states it wants to monitor the transactions of. This is very significant because it shows economic growth in the city without the need for some to take out mortgage loans for their purchases. Las Vegas realtor Sonja Hanna keeps buyers informed via social media and her reports have shown the market isn’t slowing down. The top-rated entrepreneur’s website is SonjaSellsLasVegasHomes.com and can be reached at 702-425-3587.

Las Vegas has evolved from being a destination for retirement, and vacation gambling city to one of the most exclusive places to live in the United States. If you live here already now is the time to take advantage of the existing and developing opportunities. If you are considering moving here get ready for what all the financially smart and biggest entertainment city in the world has to offer.
