Reading Comprehension

Dear Readers, First off, I don’t know why I am commenting when previous commentators have made such completely inaccurate conclusions to this article. Maybe to enlighten others, I don’t know, but a little reading comprehension folks. Anyways, I feel the article is going in a direction of responsible and irresponsible investing in addition to the spiritual aspect of stocks.

hashem has his ways of making someone rich. It can be through real estate or stocks. So the Rebbe’s answer is selective and does not reffer to everyone – as you can see that the Rebbe Maharash did make it in stocks

I personally dont think its ok to invest in stocks being that halachically you cant gamble and i see it as one in the same thing.
