Massive discounts, frenzied crowds, and incredible deals.
Black Friday evolved from humble origins to a nationwide phenomenon…
Today, it marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season and has become synonymous with consumerism and bargain hunting for millions of shoppers.
If you’re wondering if we can apply any Black Friday lessons to our trading approach for better results, the answer is a big yes. Read on to see four that might resonate with you.
Origins and Evolution.
The term “Black Friday” originated in Philadelphia in the 1950s.
The police used it to describe the chaotic post-Thanksgiving traffic jams and crowded sidewalks caused by the influx of shoppers and tourists. Over time, retailers adopted the term to signify moving from operating at a loss (in the red) to turning a profit (in the black). This would mark the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season.
Traditionally, stores opened early, often at dawn, offering doorbuster deals to lure in eager customers. However, as the years – and decades — progressed…
The event grew in scale, with retailers extending their opening hours and launching online sales, leading to the rise of Cyber Monday as a digital counterpart to Black Friday.
Food for thought:
In the same way retailers offer discounts to consumers, there are always world-class stocks trading at fantastic discounts that translate to substantial gains for savvy investors.
The trick is to look in the right places, as this internal briefing outlines.
Shopping Extravaganza and Traditions.
Black Friday has become synonymous with blockbuster deals, deeply discounted products, and shoppers camping outside stores overnight to grab the limited-time offers.
World-class companies like Apple do something similar, and you can profit when you understand how to leverage discounted stocks. Are you familiar with stock splits?
In June 2014, Apple split its shares 7-for-1 to make its shares more accessible to a larger number of investors. Before the split, each share’s opening price was approximately $649.88. After the split, the share price at market open was $93 (649 divided by 7).
Existing shareholders received six additional shares for each share they owned before the stock split. So, if you owned 1,000 shares of AAPL before the stock split…
You had 7,000 shares after the stock split.
Do you know how much each Apple share is worth today?
That’s more than double your money if you got in at $95 per share back then.
Evolution Into Online Shopping
Black Friday transcended from brick-and-mortar stores to e-commerce.
Online retailers embraced the concept and introduced their version. That is Cyber Monday, the digital shopping event offering similar or even more enticing deals.
This shift has revolutionized Black Friday, enabling consumers to access discounts from the comfort of their homes and fostering a new era of online shopping extravaganzas.
As a trader, this makes you appreciate technology even more. Today, you can trade anywhere with your smartphone, but many years ago, we didn’t have that luxury.
This also means you needn’t be a high-level insider to be consistently profitable.
When you leverage advanced tools the average trader isn’t privy to, you can easily become an informed trader or investor, taking advantage of new opportunities.

Challenges and Changes
While Black Friday remains a pinnacle of consumerism…
Its prominence has faced challenges in recent years.
The rise of year-round sales, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and shifting consumer behaviors have led some retailers to rethink the traditional model.
Many have opted to spread out their promotions over a more extended period.
Some start earlier in November and continue through December, blurring the distinction between Black Friday and other shopping days and increasing their profit margins.
