Stock and Mutual Fund
Investing Strategies for Beginners
I remember my uncle once told me he relied on some “pros” to handle his
investments. At that time I thought it was a mistake but I was too
young to understand why. Almost all of he experts I listen to today say
this is mistake.
This is the primary reason why most investors fail. This includes
nearly all full-service brokers who charge commissions. Even the ones
that handle actively managed mutual funds should be avoided. There
could be a conflict of interest between the managers who run the funds
and the shareholders who own them.
The primary purpose of “financial services” is to pull your money from
your wallet. There is heavy emphasis on marketing and the cost
structure benefits the managers, not you.
There are some investment tactics you might want to employ, rather than
allowing the “pros” to suck you dry. Look for breakthrough products.
Go beyond the history and expert analysis to find out who is really
running the company and their direction. Many top investors prefer
buying leaders in the industry.
Buy low and sell high; that is if you want to sell. Warren Buffet once
made a comment about buying and selling. The sheer act of trading can
suck your profits dry. Market timing is incredibly important. Learn to
spot undervalued stocks.
Avoid the panic. I have had friends that bought stocks and immediately
sold them when they declined, only to see them rise shortly after they
got out. It seems like they habitually do this. I like to call this
the panic syndrome.
options. Pick some stocks and begin watching them daily. There are
many online sites that are set up for watching portfolios. Take
advantage of it and don’t give the “pros” all of your money.
