1 Investment Tips for Beginners 2 Investments in stocks and shares have historically been one of the most lucrative methods of wealth accumulation often returning significantly higher rates than savings and bonds. However investment in the stock market on any scale is often complex and beginners should take the time to thoroughly understand their strategy and identify their strengths before taking their first steps into investment. 3 The first and arguably most important tip for anyone looking to invest in stocks is to not underestimate the value of planning and research. While it is not necessary to be able to predict the future a clear understanding of the workings of an industry and the companies contained therein allows even complete novices to somewhat accurately predict the performance of a given corporation. 4 After all the objective of investment is to make money and share prices rise and fall not only on the current strengths of the company but also their future prospects. Identifying trends such as high growth markets or clear expansion plans can aid in selecting a profitable stock. 5 Next it is important for any new investor to keep an eye on the progress of their investments. While no investor needs to become a part-time analyst watching tickers and news wires all day it is important to take a keen interest in developments surrounding an invested company or their industry noting any variation in the outlook either positive or negative and adjusting the holding accordingly. 6 Novice investors should also be acutely aware of diversification. Stocks and valuations fluctuate wildly even in the most stable of markets. Regardless of the initial amount invested fledgling portfolios should attempt to spread their capital between mostly dissociated industries in an effort to absorb volatility and increase overall capital appreciation. 7 While crises among one or two companies rarely cause an entire market to crash knock-on effects are almost always felt among businesses within a similar sector. It can therefore be much more comfortable to offset losses somewhat through small profits on unrelated stocks than watching entire portfolios rise and fall together. 8 Conversely as a smaller portfolio grows there can be some value in eventually investing in other companies related to those that are performing well. When suitable diversification is achieved combining certain assets into groups streamlines the industries that must be monitored in terms of news and developments. 9 New investors should always seek to keep their cost base low and accept as much assistance as possible usually in the form of a trading platform. These platforms work on commission but are one of the most convenient methods of entering the stock market for the first time. 10 As part of their initial research investors should consider the costs associated with their chosen platform based on trading frequency and additional charges enabling them to use the majority of their investment capital on real investment rather than fees. 11 Overall the keys to succeeding as a new investor are strategy and information management. A fully prepared investor who can assimilate and utilise key data has immediately set themselves on the path to success. 12 For more information visit our website at http//stock-trading-investing.com
