    In this week’s episode of Market Mondays, Troy Millings and Ian Dunlap discuss a selection of companies, weighing in on whether they are stocks to keep or to let go of right now.

    McCardo Libre ($MELI), known as the Amazon of South America, impresses Ian, especially if it dips below $1425. He acknowledges its strong performance, despite wanting to see how it adjusts to the current market.

    Carnival Cruise Line ($CCL), despite a year of ups and downs, is seen as a "good trade, bad investment" by Ian. He suggests a cautious approach with a potential trade if it falls back to $12 or around $9.

    For The Hershey Company ($HSY), despite a tough year and rising cocoa costs, Ian expresses long-term interest, setting his ideal buying price at $132 but considering $165 to $171 acceptable for investment.

    General Electric ($GE) sparks a change of heart for Ian, praising its leadership and pricing increase. Yet, the boom and bust cycles keep him from a long-term commitment, though he's open to a swing trade around $71 to $75.

    UPS ($UPS) finds itself in a predicament with Amazon encroaching on its territory. Ian suggests looking out for a price drop to $128 or $110 before taking it for a "date," with a clear stance towards a cautious approach.

    Finally, the Timken Company ($TKR) is described as an unexpectedly attractive stock by Ian. With its price appreciation, he would take it on a date at the right price point, ideally at $72 or loving it at $50.

    Throughout the show, the chemistry between Troy and Ian makes for an entertaining yet insightful analysis as they dissect each company’s potential, with Ian providing specific price points that he believes would make for a good trade or investment.

    Study Hall: How to Turn 8k to 325k For Your Child's Future 

    Study Hall: How to Turn 8k to 325k For Your Child's Future 

    In this impactful clip of Market Mondays, hosts Rashad Bilal, Troy Millings, and Ian Dunlap share their expertise on financial planning for your child's future. Rashad discusses the power of compounding interest and the long-term benefits of investing in a Roth IRA for your child. With as little as $8,000 invested between the ages of 14 to 17, Rashad illustrates how this can potentially grow to a whopping $325,000 by the time they reach retirement, all tax-free and with a staggering 3968% rate of return. He emphasizes the idea that this is not just money for the sake of money; it's about securing your child's financial future and providing a stable foundation they can rely on as they age. Alongside Rashad's insights, Ian stresses the importance of long-term investment and planning for family succession, while Troy highlights the need to prepare for the future responsibilities that come with retirement, including caring for older generations. They all agree that the early start in savings is a gift that can help your child with major life milestones like buying a home or supporting their descendants. Whether you're an entrepreneur with the ability to start saving earlier than the typical working age or a regular employee, Rashad, Ian, and Troy advise that it's never too soon to plan ahead. The clip isn't just financial guidance; it's a plan for generational wealth building that every parent should consider.
