Frequently Asked Questions

Our head office is in Dallas, Texas. We have strategically set our eyes on Texas as the next economic boom and forecast looks to be bullish. Texas saw a 10.1% increase in the annual rate growth of real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the last quarter of 2021 compared to the national average of 6.9% GDP — according to data from the Bureau of Economic.

Texas offers a combination of unique competitive business advantages that no other state can claim: a business-friendly climate—with no corporate or personal income tax—along with a highly skilled and diverse workforce and easy access to global markets.

The economy of the State of Texas is the second largest by GDP in the United States after that of California. It has a gross state product of $2.0 trillion as of 2021. In 2011, Texas was home to six of the biggest 50 companies, and 51 in total, in the Fortune 500 (the third most after New York and California).

Deciding to take a company public offers many rewards for those who have a financial stake in a business. While there are risks, the benefits of going public include an influx of cash, increased public awareness, better valuation, attracting better talent and more easily raising funds for future projects.

By going public, a company provides liquidity for its shareholders. When a company grows, its major shareholders may wish to cash in on the wealth they have tied up in the business. The public offer creates a market for the company’s shares that gives investors the ability to sell their holdings.

Over-the-counter (OTC) securities are securities that are not listed on a major exchange in the United States and are instead traded via a broker-dealer network, usually because many are smaller companies and do not meet the requirements to be listed on a formal exchange.

If you go with a real-world full-service brokerage, you can buy and sell OTC stocks. The broker will place the order with the market maker for the stock you want to buy or sell. Bid and ask quotes can be monitored constantly through the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB).

Here are four types of stocks that every savvy investor should own for a balanced hand.

  • Penny Stocks
  • Speculative Stocks

  • Cyclical Stocks
  • Value Stocks

The three most widely followed indexes in the U.S. are the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq Composite.

NYSE American was formerly known as the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) before it was acquired in 2008.
