What is contra in stock trading?

When you buy stocks, the actual stocks get delivered to your trading account only after 3 business days and you pay for the stocks only when they are delivered BUT you are already the owner of the stocks BEFORE they are delivered or PAID FOR. As such, if you sell those stocks within that 3 days, a cash difference of your profit or loss will result in your account without ever owning the stock or paying for them. This is known as stock contra.

How do you find if a company is diluting shares?

It depends on the kind of company, If it is a public traded company say OTC, the best way to detect is looking at the Level 2 of the stock. When you see bearish trades of the same size going in a lot. Let say you keep seeing 20,000 size trades coming in a lot by one or two market makers. if it keeps happening frequently by the exact same market makers, then there is possible dilution.

How much money does a stockbroker earn?

It varies. Success usually depends on skill and effort.

Being a Stockbroker, I feel qualified to answer this one. A stockbroker can earn any amount of money that he/she wants to earn. Since it is a Commission-Only business, your annual income will depend upon the following:

1. How much effort you put into your work.

2. How good you are at it.

The average stockbroker with a major firm (Merrill, Smith Barney, AG Edwards etc) will earn about $100,000 per year or more. This would be for brokers with 5 or more years of service. There are brokers that earn less and some brokers earn in excess of $500,000 per year.

Can you use your ESOP account as collateral on a personal loan?

Yes, the vested portion of an employee stock ownership plan owned directly by an individual may be used for collateral. Some definitions:

* "Owned directly by the individual" indicates that there is a clear trail of ownership that is held by a sole party (e.g., one has X shares of stock in the company or Y% of the company)

* "Vested portion" indicates the portion of assets owned by an individual that no longer have any contingency attached (e.g., one may be vested in 50 shares of stock if I stay with the company 3 years after receiving those shares; for the first 3 years, that stock may not be used in full by the individual)
