How to Invest in Stocks — Your Step-By-Step Guide to Beginner Investing

20

In the video above, I lay out the five steps to successfully investing in stocks. If you’re a beginning investor looking to learn more about the stock market, it’s a must-watch.

You don’t need a ton of experience or a fancy degree to invest well.

You don’t need to spend hours listening to talking heads chatter on TV.

The key thing you need?

Time. Time to research. Time to think. Time to read the opposite viewpoint and make sure you have a great margin of safety. Time to dig deeper and find opportunities that the rest of the market is missing.

Of course, if you don’t have time, you can invest profitably in stock funds (index funds and ETFs) – check out this video (https://youtu.be/omuMbgHjH7k) to learn more about fund investing and why it might be right for you if you’re looking for automatic diversification and lower-effort investing.

But if you’re ready to take the plunge and learn how investing in individual stocks can change your life, you’ve come to the right place.

In the video, I share:

– How to source investing ideas from your everyday life;

– How to research those stocks – and their underlying companies – to really understand the investing opportunity;

– Characteristics of the very best stocks to invest in;

– How to diversify your portfolio so you aren’t dependent on one or two companies for all your investing returns;

– What you need to invest successfully through bull ¬and bear markets;

– And so much more.

  1. So wait, if you invest in stocks- you’re committed to investing the same amount annually? You can’t purchase stocks and just let it sit and come back to it some years later? You have to keep putting money into it..?

  2. Learn how to value companies and buy the ones you want when they sell well below your valuation – repeat over and over – if you do not know how to value a company then you should not invest in it
