How to choose a company for investing .

I want to know how to choose a company to do an investment. ie knowledge to invest.

How to invest depends on what you already know. We’ll assume that you’re beginning.A good primer is How to Make Money in Stocks by William O’Neil. You can get it cheap just about anywhere. It’s widely available new or used.Another good one is one of Jim Cramer’s books.But books will only get you so far. At some point, you’ll also want to get at least a little training. There are some great education companies if you want to make the investment. Investools.com or optionetics.com are both very good companies as is tmitchell.comFor free, you can start by visiting thestreet.com. That’ll get you a pretty good primer so at least you’ll understand what the markets are and what a stock is, etc. If you get a chance, watch Mad Money on CNBC. Don’t trade any of his picks. Just use the show to get you to understand some basics and get a feel for the market itself.Next, subscribe to something like investorsbusiness daily or something like that that can help you identify good stocks.Do a quick search (at the top of the page) on ROTH IRAs. You’ll want to put some money in there.Once you understand stocks, go to 888options.com. It’s a website that’ll help you understand options (what they do, how they work, etc). You don’t need to trade them, but the more you know, the more you’ll see how options can really be the safest way to invest (once you’re educated).As you get more advanced, you might want a technical analysis book like Murphy’s Visual Investor or A Technical Analysis Course by Meyer.If it’s discipline (which is crucial to successful trading), probably Trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas or Mastering the Trade by John CarterI know that’s a LOT to absorb. Just take it one step at a time for now. Start slow, then as you figure things out, move out of mutual funds into ETFs and/or stocks.Congrats on getting started. If you have any questions, please let me know.Hope this helps!

What are some good books for stock investing BEGINNERS.

I m trying to find books on stock investing that teach how to invest in stocks from complete scratch, books that teach like this person has no idea whatsoever about the stock market, not books that brush up on your current investing skills. Any good suggestions?

Before you spend $0.01 on any investment, you must know what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and how to do it and make sure you have the money to do it. Also, you must have an understanding of the rules & regulations that govern what you’re trying to do. Before you invest in any security, the first investment you should make is in yourself, and the best investment you can make is by educating yourself.Begin your education by learning why you should invest and the importance of being able to make your own decisions or how the pro’s make theirs. Start your education by reading “Investing for Dummies” by Eric Tyson.To continue your education select some of the followingBeating the Street by Peter LynchBulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered, by GalleaFrom Riches to Rags, by I.C. FreeleyHow to Make Money in Stocks” by William O’Neil24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success by William O’NeilThe Intelligent Investor, by Benjamin GrahamCommon Stocks, Uncommon Profits, by Philip A. FisherOne Up on Wall Street by Peter LynchStocks for the Long Run, by Jeremy SiegelUncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits by Joel Greenblatt.What Works on Wall Street by James O ShaunesseyYou Can Be a Stock Market Genius by Joel GreenblattYour Money and Your Brain by Jason ZweigWebsites that can provide instructions and help with procedures and terminology are Investopedia – http://www.investopedia.com/ http://www.investorshub.com/ and 1 Source for Stocks – http://www.1source4stocks.com/info/stock… or Smart Moneyhttp://www.smartmoney.com/Visit some of the more professional websites like Zacks Research – http://www.zacks.com/ Schaeffer’s http://www.schaeffersresearch.com/ Investors Business Daily – http://www.investors.com/default.htm?fromad=1Some of these web sites will have advertisers who are worth looking into also. And remember, if they offer free information, get it.And when you think you want to invest/trade, try some paper trading to test your skills without spending you money http://simulatorinvestopedia.com/ http://www.moneyworks4me.com/and/or http://www.tradingsimulation.com/After you feel comfortable with what you re trying to do, visit the Web sites of some of the more popular brokerage firms. So if you feel comfortable with what you see on line and look at the cost and/or charges. When you are ready to go, just open an account with the firm using their on-line services. Please remember, the cheapest is not always the best. Even though you’re opening an account on line. you can always call the firm s “customer service” area for helpYou at least have made the right decision to start investing, this is the first big step and it won’t be your last. Keep taking those steps forward and along the way never take the advice from people that are not in the market or try to tell you not to invest.Good luck on your journey, study hard and you’ll invest well.`

does anyone know good tips on how to invest.

I am looking for information on how to properly invest, and prepare for the future. How does investing works, and what are some useful websites and tips. Thanks to all who respond

Standard investment advice is that you should invest in a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, and money market funds. If you are like most people you will invest part of your money aggressively in stocks, and part conservatively in money market funds and bond funds. However, some young people will go all stocks, and some very conservative people will go all money markets. The links below have on-line questionnaires which will give you an idea of how to do “Asset Allocation,” determining how much to put in each type of investment.You want to buy a diversified portfolio of stocks as individual stocks are too risky. Highly knowledgeable people can buy a properly balanced portfolio, but most folks have a difficult time balancing things on their own. They will misbalance their portfolio by buying all small stocks or all growth stocks, or some other misbalanced assortment of stocks. Back in 2000, Some people bought all Internet stocks; they got burnt when they all crashed together. You have to diversify across industries. Unless you know what you are doing, it is best to buy mutual funds that will diversify for you. Buy no-load, low cost funds. Mutual funds should have expense ratios of less than 0.5%.I like index funds. Because of their broad diversification, you are less likely to have a dramatic drop in value. They also have the lowest management fees. For stock funds, I like putting ~70% of one’s money in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund. and ~30% in the Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund. The Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund is good for a bond fund. The Vanguard Target Retirement funds can be a good all-in-one stock and bond funds for an IRA. (If you have less than 3,000 dollars, you can’t invest in most Vanguard funds. For such people I would suggest Schwab funds.) There are many different opinions out there on what the best mutual funds are. Read the links below and form your own opinion.Once you have stared investing, you need to keep adding money on a regular basis. Many funds allow you to set up automatic investment programs that take a set amount of money out of your bank account each month.If your company offers a 401K plan at work, try to invest the most you can. The money grows tax free, and some companies will match your contribution. Investing in a mutual fund IRA is also a good idea. If you have children, you may want to consider a 529 plan or other college savings plan that grows tax free.Buying a house instead of renting will save you a lot of money in the long run. You don’t have to pay rent and you build equity in your house instead. Buying rental property can be a good investment for some people. However, being a landlord can be hard work, and many people are not good at it. If you don’t know how to handle deadbeat renters, you can have trouble.If you have high-interest debt, like credit cards, it is best to pay this off first before trying most of the investment ideas above. You should also have 3-6 months of salary saved up as an emergency fund in a bank or money market fund before trying more risky investments.I will warn you that there is a tremendous amount of stock investing books and websites that teach stock investing strategies that don’t work. Particularly bad are people that teach “technical analysis” systems that sound impressive, but don’t work.Believing advice you get on Yahoo answers can be risky, so read these websites for further information. If you find it too confusing, contact a professional financial advisor. They will charge you significant commissions, however.

Are there any books that educate you on how to invest in the stock market, and make a profit.

Thank You for your time

there are TONS of books that tell you how to invest. None of them guarantee a profit.Schwab.com, etrade.com, yahoo.com all have excellent information and advice, as do many others. The stock market is not for the weak willed. It is an unemotional sea of money to be made, and lost.I’ve made several thousand, and lost a little less. I’m in mutual funds now and real estate and haven’t looked back. You might consider them too.Good luck.Remember, buy low, sell high and you’ll be rich before you know it.

Is there any books on how to invest using Money Flow Index.

What are some of the best books that show how to invest using Money Flow Index?

TA indices are often not much more than a calculation with a relatively simple interpretation so unless it is book that is just devoted to TA indicators, I doubt you will find one dedicated to MFIHowever, this index and most others are quite well discussed in the Chart School section of Stockcharts.comhttp://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?i…give this a read and I think most of your questions will be answered.Actually I have just been assembling a new chart using Ichimoku clouds and Stockcharts.com free charts will only allow 2 indicators with this type of main chart….I had placed ROC as one of them but I think MFI fits better…thanks for the memory jog :)Hope this helps

  1. there are alot good books out there, start simple and work your way up, you can’t learn it all in one night so try this “investing for dummies” its simple and actually teaches alot, this is how i started why don’t u get to it too!

  2. Supply and demand for their product or service. Have suppliers saturated the market yet? Is there still more demand for the product than suippliers in the sector can provide? If so, that keeps prices and profit margins up. If prices, for the companies product, are falling then demand is probably also or competition among suppliers have saturated the market.

  3. To Start Investing3- ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds): ETFs are like a mutual fund but trades like a stock and that is the main differences between ETFs and stocks and mutual funds. There are some ETFs that represents Index’s. An Index is like S&P or DOW. Index’s operate just like a mutual fund with a group of stocks in deferent sectors, manage by professionals. You can’t buy Index’s because they are not for sell. A company owns them. But you can buy a mutual funds or an ETF that has the same stocks as the Index they represent. There are a lots of different kinds of ETFs for someone to choose from. There are some that represent almost every kind of sub-sector. And there are some that have 1x leverage, some have 2x leverage for aggressive investors, and some has 3x leverage for more aggressive investors. If you wish you had more money to invest, the 3x is like having three times the amount of your money in the market. You will make more in an up market but lose more in a down market.

  4. Unfortunately, there are many books out there that make great reading, but promote investment systems that don’t work. Finding good investment books is difficult.There are beginners courses available, some free and some very good low cost ones.if some-one in family, friends/aquaitances, work/school, is financial-aid, stock-broker, stocks & bonds, stocks & trade, buisness dealership, & you know them ask them what businesses they think will take off in upcoming 10-33yrs.

  5. Invest in stocks of biggest industry , why , because government bales them out . Stay away from banks investment but get into gold or silver or insurance companys like separate from bank

  6. No one can tell what you should invest in the market. You need to decide what’s right for you at the present time. Before you start investing, the first thing you need to decide is what risk level you want to take. CDs backed up by the government has about 3-4% annual return for the long term with a low risk. Bonds or Bonds Funds has about 5-7% annual return for the long term with a medium risk. Stocks or Stock Mutual Funds has about 8-10% annual return for the long term with a high risk and are more volatile than Bonds. A person can make more than 10% annual return with the right investment. Usually the more risk you take, the more return you will have, but not always.I am not sure of books but http://www.investopedia.com is a great place to start I found

  7. what’s up Ryan? i also want to learn how to invest tooTo buy stocks or funds, you need a broker account. You can open an account online or in a broker house and it is free to open. You can find several good discount brokers that charge $8.00 and under per stock trade and no fee on Noload Funds. If you only have a small amount of money to invest, it may be best to start in Noload Funds because of the broker fees. Most broker websites have good research tools. Some popular broker websites are Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, E-trade, Scottrade and others. I think you need a min. of $500 (some sites $2,500) to open a broker account and need to be at lease 18 years old. If you not 18, you might could get your Dad to open an account for you.The stock market is basally made up of stocks and bonds. Investment managers pick a group of stocks to make a mutual fund or a group of bonds to make a bond fund. They even put a mixture of stocks and bonds together and call it a Growth & Income Fund.All those stocks that are at 2 year highs friday , that had ever increasing blow-out earnings..are the ones you should own, but not at the 2 year high price, you’d wait for corrections not related to the individual stock or it’s sector…and in this crazy world with crooks in control it’s getting to be an easier occurrence.

  8. Invest in companies that you are interested in… things that you and people around you use every day… then jump in !If you are not familiar with the ticker symbols I mentioned, I would suggest that you research them through yahoo and google finance pages.

  9. To buy stocks or funds, you need a broker account. You can open an account online and it is free to open.

  10. 2. Determine your risk tolerance.buy business newspaper or go on interner and do reserch about the concerned party and find out what is companies possibilities are for next 5-10 years

  11. its simple yaar. i would suggest you to invest in companies that are traded daily i.e. blue chip companies.do well

  12. Technical analysis is the best way to pick stocks for trading. There are many forms of technical analysis of which Elliott Waves analysis is one of the ones that I use regularly.

  13. 2- STOCKS: Stocks is more volatile than funds unless you spread you money in several different areas and know witch area will do best. There are 10 stock sectors and over 100 sub-sectors to choose from. Stock trading restriction is only a few days, not like mutual funds. If you own stocks, you will need to keep up with all the company’s business so you don’t get stuck with a bad stock. That could take a lots of time. If a person buys just a few stocks he probably is hoping to make a bigger return but he may be taking more risk. If that’s the case, look at the leverage ETFs that represents a large group of stocks. That could be another choice.

  14. These courses provide a lot of information on how to start trading and then I would suggest practicing first in a virtual trading account to learn more.

  15. 1- MUTUAL FUNDS: Mutual funds have a group of stocks (could be around 100+) invested in different sectors, and manage by a professional. Managers have lots of schooling for investing in stocks, around 8 years. So I think managers can pick stocks better than I can. There are lots of different kinds of mutual funds and they have different risk level. There are 100s of funds that does not charge any fees to buy it’s shares and they are called Noload Funds. There are also some funds called Load Funds that charge about 5% of your investment. You can make a buy or sell order anytime of the day for mutual funds shares but it will not go in affect until the close of the day. Most funds has trading restriction and you may not be able to trade more than 4 times a year. That’s because it makes it hard for the fund to make a good return if there is to much trading in the fund, causing the fund manager to make more buys and sells and keep more cash on hand. Mutual funds are meant for long term investors.

  16. The best tips to invest is to construct a diversified portfolio and be a long term investor. For example, my favorite ETF’s for a diversified portfolio are: VTI (for total US stock market exposure), VEU (for international exposure), VWO (for emerging markets exposure), TIPS (Treasury-inflation protected securities for hedging against inflation), and BND (bond market exposure, although it is risky now with interest rates rising up. But BND still belongs in a diversified portfolio. I also like GLD and SLV for my portfolio.

  17. invest in things you’re I treated in (sport-wear, cloths, building-equipment, furniture, board / video / card games, car-dealerships) the ones to invest in ’80s were walmart, Microsoft, face-book, medical agencies, video-game Corp. (bungie, infintry-ward)

  18. For your skilled growth, as you recognize, you would like to urge such fast inputs on several vital topics as otherwise you will unwittingly build several mistakes in your career.

  19. You will learn a lot and you will still have your start up fund in the bank until you know you can make money from trading.

  20. It takes a long time to learn the stock market and it would help if you read some books from your library and information online. It would also help if you did some practice trading with play money. You can do this by using a watch list in Yahoo Finance > My Portfolio. Just pretend you bought some shares of your choice. If you need help to set-up the watch list, let me know.2- STOCKS: Stocks is more volatile than funds unless you spread you money in several different areas and know witch area will do best.

  21. but you need to hold these shares for a minimum period of 3-5 years inorder to have a fair idea of how the value of your stock grows..3. Identify how long you wish to invest. Are you going to need the money in 2 weeks, a year, 10years? This will place limits on what you can invest in.

  22. If you mean as in a financial institute with a financial planner then asking here to get peoples opinions on their planners was a good move ! I have been happy with “American funds group” go online here and search for the nearest one to you. See what they have to offer !

  24. To Start Investingright now i’m reading the book “a beginner’s guide to day trading online” that i bought at the Barnes and Novel. i think the reading is quite a little hard to understand, but so far i reached to chapter 2, understand a little bit. all sources from internet are all useful but i prefer book because i could write on it whatever term i don’t know. but just start with basic reading first, get the base, and then go from there.

  25. The stock market is basally made up of stocks and bonds. Investment managers pick a group of stocks to make a mutual fund or a group of bonds to make a bond fund. They even put a mixture of stocks and bonds together and call it a Growth & Income Fund.
