Since Kings Island is owned by Paramount which is owned by Viacom, thee Sponge Bob Squarepants hangs out there. When I first started learning about stocks years ago and decided I might try my hand, I read a book that suggested that you look at your own environment and see what products you regularly use and research the company and see if they have a solid foundation and are diversified among a number of products. I looked around and saw a number of Nickelodeon crap in my environment thanks to three small children. I did some research and found Viacom was the parent company. I took what little bit of savings I had and bought some shares and within two years, tripled my investment. Thanks SpongeBob!
