What the hell? Is this normal?

Two weeks ago I bought stocks for the first time. I heard you get 10% a year on average from stocks. I thought I would get $4,000 by December. Is this normal?

How can you tell if something is in a bubble?

Do you guys have portfolios? Is it normal to get thousands a month doing nothing?

Don’t i have to pay 30% in capital gains taxes for cashing out without holding for a year? What would I invest the money I cash out into?

No, it's not normal but it's just a hossa. I managed 78% return last year with pretty popular stocks.

But I get nervous now. Thinking of cashing out.

Why'd you choose to deposit $40,100 into your account?

Key word is average. Could be 40%, could be -40%.

What the fuck?! 78%? What did you invest in?
I have never invested before. 50% of normies don’t own stock - including all my friends. Is this some secret club where you get money doing nothing?

I inherited it. before I’d usually have around $1k in my banking account so I never thought about investing.

This is normal. The 10% statistic is averaged out over time so some years you'll do better, some years you'll do worse. Overall you'll end up around 10% holding a diversified snapshot of the market but there's always the chance of doing better or worse.

I don’t know if anyone is still reading this but 2k is basically my moms monthly salary, so it blows my mind that I am getting this income from thin air.

You’re invested in one of the biggest equities bull runs in history. Even newbies like you can make crazy % gains from just buying and holding. Don’t get dumped on

Oh shite! how can you tell if something is in a bubble? I’m just now googling it but there’s no news saying the bull run is about to end. I thought stocks are just something you set and forget and come back at the end of the year to this.

I’m not an investor at all and pale at the thought of investing in companies that I morally disagree with; BUT, your go-to about these answers should be trends and politics. I mean, look, if everything is going up, and Trump is recklessly advocating a trade war, it sounds like a bull run, it sounds unsustainable.
But no-one’s gonna make your mind up for you.

Thanks for this response user. It made me see stocks in a different way than before. I feel like I have too much of a normie mindset towards this
