As the attention of the media is shifting to a more mobile arena, Dish Network is a company that is positioning itself to stay ahead of the curve. If you have noticed, many people either go to YouTube, utilize free or low cost streaming services, or eliminate the television all together. This is a growing concern as people fight for the attention of millions of people. Ask any one of your friends, and they watch popular television shows, the difference is they watch it on their own time. Not only is attention getting difficult, but drawing people to use a specific platform is becoming more difficult as well.

For someone doesn’t look at the market often, it can be intimidating to catch up because the market moves so quickly and stops for no one. Many retail investors are unable to properly gauge the market and the market sectors because they don’t take the time to really get an in depth understanding of where the market is at. Thanks to the wonderful people that create products, ETF’s have allowed the retail investor to enter markets and market sectors without taking on company specific risk. The most popular is the SPY and that follows the S&P 500 index.

If you have not heard of Disney, simply visit your nearest store or flip on the television and you will see the impact this company has on the entertainment world today. Disney operates two amusement parks in the United States and has graced us with so many movies that we’ve all lost count. A reason this company does so well is they cause us to gain an attachment to their products and movies because we associate them with memories. Now, they are brining back the popular movies of the late 1990’s and 2000’s as people who were kids then, are no beginning to start families of their own.

As the financial world evolves and the way money is transferred changes, Visa is one of the leaders in the money business. The way we used to send money was through cash and wire transfers, but now we have the ability to essentially text money and receive money within seconds. The debit card transformed how we use and spend money, and with the addition of Bitcoin, there are new technologies in the works that will continue to evolve the way we transfer money.

Whole Foods is a higher end grocer that sells foods that are organic and healthier compared to the average store. Recently, there was an investor that took a percentage stake in the company that allowed them to voice their opinion on how the company should continue. With pressure coming from competitors, sales and traffic have been slowing, which could indicate that the market is shifting. There has been some news on the company that they should look for a sale, but that is too early to tell. If you’re looking to invest for the long term, that certainly is something to keep in mind because it could affect your returns.

If you have been at the gas pump lately, you may have noticed that gas prices have increased. This could be a result a few different factors, and increasing oil prices is one of them. Exxon Mobile is a company that operates within the oil industry and has been negatively impacted by the consistently low oil prices. Of course as a consumer of gasoline, you want to see oil prices stay low, but for the benefit of your portfolio and investments into oil, you want to see prices increase. Over the long term, price will stabilize and remain fairly constant despite the recent volatility due to an over supply.
