HOW TO INVEST MONEY IN STOCKS? HOW MUCH MONEY TO INVEST IN STOCKS?
What I do is, I invest money in my stock market portfolio on a month by month basis. I have a model stock portfolio that I started with $10 thousand and I add $1 thousand every month no matter what. I do not necessarily buy with all the money that I add, that depends on the opportunities in the market, more about how I find opportunities and track them later.
My goal is for this stock market portfolio to be at $1 million in 20 years. This will be achieved if I reach an investment return of 12% per year. I believe, this can be achieved with proper research, good risk reward analysis and proper portfolio diversification. Investors that I admire like Klarman, Buffett, Schloss, have achieved even higher returns than 12% over the very long term. Other value investors are steadily above 15% which shows that this can be done over the long term.
WHAT ARE THE BEST STOCKS TO BUY?
The best stocks to buy are those with good businesses that lead to growing earnings, cash flows and dividends over time no matter what is going on with the economy or stock market.
HOW TO FIND THE BEST STOCKS TO BUY?
Here it all boils down to research, looking for the best businesses, following sectors that are cheap at the moment due to temporary reasons.
STOCK MARKET CRASH PROTECTION
On stock market crash protections, you have to see when do you need the money and then balance between cash and investing. Stocks to expensive, have more cash and then balance as the market always fluctuates.
SHOULD I INVEST IN PENNY STOCKS OR BITCOIN?
Penny stocks and cryptocurrencies attract lots of people because big money can be made there fast due to the high volatility. However, that is speculation and you depend on someone paying more than what you paid.
HOW TO INVEST IN BLOCKCHAIN?
To invest in the technology you are looking at long term investments in companies like IBM. There is even an IBM blockchain page.
HOW TO INVEST IN STOCKS ON YOUR OWN?
The first thing to know is to understand all the terms related to stocks and investing, all the accounting factors (I have to make a course accounting for investors, will come but I can’t promise when), read as many books as you can (we have made a summary of the intelligent investor here) and there is also my book, and give yourself time to learn. Invest the money you can afford to lose as tuition, you learn much better with real money.
