Top Market Stories of The Year

I do these kind of recap things only when I remember to post on my blog, and I remember to post on my blog about once a year. So it actually works out perfectly. I just wish I could remember to post on my blog on December 31 instead of July 12.

Here’s a recap of my 10 most read Benzinga articles of the past year. As always, these stories aren’t necessarily by best work. They are merely the stories that got the most attention and more of a reflection of the topics people cared most about in the past 12 months.

For those of you who read my last list of top market stories of 2019-2020, you’ll recall that people mostly cared about how much $100 worth of certain stocks bought 10 years ago would be worth today. Of course, with the pandemic and the economic shutdowns and all the geopolitical drama of the past year, a lot has changed. In the past year, people instead cared mostly about how much $1,000 of worth of certain stocks bought one year ago would be worth today.

Without further ado, here are my 10 most read stories of the past year:

Want to learn more about how to profit off the stock market? Or maybe you just want to be able to look sophisticated in front of your coworkers when they ask you what you are reading on your Kindle, and you’d prefer to tell them “Oh, I’m just reading a book about stock market analysis,” rather than the usual “Oh, I’m just looking at pics of my ex-girlfriend on Facebook.” For these reasons and more, check out my book, Beating Wall Street with Common Sense. I don’t have a degree in finance; I have a degree in neuroscience. You don’t have to predict what stocks will do if you can predict what traders will do and be one step ahead of them. I made a 400% return in the stock market over five years using only basic principles of psychology and common sense. Beating Wall Street with Common Sense is now available on Amazon, and is always available on your local internet!
