We focus on the stock market

Shareks does its own proprietary stock research. We try to follow (own?) the top 75-100 stocks in the market.

Stock Education

We looked back to some of the best stocks of our yesteryear to find characteristices top long-term winners possessed. From Walmart (WMT) to Home Depot (HD), Microsoft (MSFT) and Starbucks (SBUX), these top stocks fit a certain mold.

Stock Research

Armed with this information, we focus our attention on researching stocks that "fit the mold". Recent holdings include big names like Booking (BKNG), UnitedHealth (UNH), Adobe (ADBE), Servicenow (NOW) and Trade Desk (TTD).

Portfolio Managment

Equipped with our proprietary stock research, we manage stock portfolios for clients (including IRAs and 401k Rollovers). Clients can view their holdings online at anytime at one of our two custodians TD Ameritrade and Interactive Brokers.
