When retail investors discover TiiCKER, some have questions about how stock perks work. So the editorial team periodically digs into our mailbag to answer some common questions about TiiCKER. We want you to get the most out of the platform that rewards shareholders for simply owning stock in their favorite companies.
Question: “I’m an investor that really enjoys learning about companies that I choose to back, so I spend a lot of time poking around the TiiCKER website to discover new stocks. I’ve noticed that some brand pages like Whirlpool (Tii:WHR), Apple (Tii:AAPL), Real Good Foods (Tii:RGF), Microsoft (Tii:MSFT) and SurgePays (Tii:SURG) have more content than other companies I’ve searched. Why do some brand pages have more content than others? Keep up the good work and thanks for highlighting companies that care about retail investors like me.” – Emily S., Agoura Hills, Calif.
Answer: Emily, thanks for the question and thanks for using TiiCKER to find brands that reward you simply for owning stock in companies you love. A lot of investors use TiiCKER to discover brands that offer valuable perks or find companies that are attractive to individual investors and we are very glad that you do too.
There are more than 4,000 publicly traded companies in the U.S. alone (and more than 40,000 worldwide) so at TiiCKER we prioritize those that provide exceptional value to retail shareholders. For those brands, TiiCKER builds custom, dedicated pages. So far, we have designed and built out more than 1,000 pages to help TiiCKER users get the most out of the platform. Hundreds more are in production at any given time. So to give you an answer, our programmers are hard at work making sure you have all the information you need along with the best perks.
And even if we haven’t built out a dedicated page for a company you are looking at, you will still find a landing page with basic company information such as its leadership and headquarters location and a news scroll along the bottom that also includes a chart showing the stock’s current and historical price. Our pages are chock full of information for investors looking to increase their stock market know-how.
At TiiCKER, we create a conduit to connect retail investors to the brands you love. We also create an important communication link in the other direction as well – between the companies listed on TiiCKER and you. Smart public companies want to hear from you as an investor. That’s why if you find yourself on a page for a company that does not have perks, you are able to send a message by voting for them to consider offering rewards. Your vote counts and sends a strong message to companies that they should reward your loyalty.
So keep coming back to TiiCKER for helpful information and to build your investing knowledge. We are constantly adding fresh content to our Insights that we hope will help you be the best retail investor that you can be. If you have ideas for stories we should cover, reach out to TiiCKER Managing Editor Rob Kirkbride at email@example.com. In the meantime, keep redeeming those perks!
