Melodicfish says:

Ok ryan so I don’t want to sound completely stupid but… I understand how compound interests works but how will I be getting interest in the first place? Is this interest the difference between my purchase price and my gain when I sell? I am a little confused on how I am getting intrest in the first place.. can you explain how I am getting this intrest from the stock and how this is then becoming compound interest? If I keep parking my money in a index fund am I gaining compound interest ? If my question isn’t a giveaway….complete stock noob here :p

Josh Reyes says:

Best informatitive video I’ve found on YouTube, I appreciate your sincerity when giving the facts. I’ve subscribed and will be using your links I hope you receive your credit. Have a great day and thank you.

Ian McDowell says:

One thing that you should mention is that if you’re only going to hold five stocks then you need to expect serious amounts of volatility compared to someone who’s holding more stocks. I am personally holding 15 individual stocks right now and am not having any issues keeping up with earnings or any other updates, just mark the calendar for earnings calls and be sure to look at it. There is nothing wrong with having 50 stocks as long as you buy them cheap and have a thesis on why you think they’ll go up.

Your Investment Guide on your blog is amazing, thank you!

Jared Immerman says:

Thank you, Ryan. I found this information very helpful.

Pieterjan Lauwers says:

Interesting video.

VWdeni says:

Warren Buffett is a very old conservative and his inputs are obsolete. Crypto currencies and Cannabis producers are not hard to understand, not at all. What you’re saying is that Buffett is right all the time and if he’s not investing in it you shouldn’t either. You’re so wrong with that statement. That guy doesn’t understand Microsoft, he doesn’t understand Apple or Amazon. He doesn’t understand Aurora Cannabis. But he sure praises Coca Cola and Wells Fargo…

Eliza Knight says:

Thanks so much for the video. I am 25 years old, I start to join the stock market about 1 week ago to prepare for retirement 🙂 I am still unsure how many % should I put into each category, this video gave me some helpful info.

AR -MRX says:

every trader should learn invest like Rothschild…..please talk about them because it’s very important to learn

O Santiago says:

I was motivated to start learning i even bought a couple of books, finished 3 of them, charting, stocks introduction, stocks for dummies etc, then i opened an account on ameritrade , made a deposit of $5k, started looking for what i think are good stocks .stocks like ONEOK Planet 13 ACB and CLOUDERA caught my attention because of the volume, projection revenue , recent acquisitions etc but then i was like what am i doing? i started questioning myself, how tf i am going to make any profit and compete against millionaires and pros that even own a Bloomberg terminal or whole firms that will be ahead of me all the time, like any good information i may find, some one will find it first, i dont know.. i was really motivated but then… i dont know what to do.

Ross Doughty says:

I’m 20 years old and I just started investing in the stock market recently, this video has helped tremendously thank you.

Joana Ramos says:

I enjoyed the video but as I am completely new to this world I still miss those basic steps, for example, how do you actually make money out of shares? I mean, as far as I’ve acknowledged you make money by 1. Buying low and selling high and 2. Just by having shares from a certain company, it means that you will receive money from time to time? Am I correct? What if the share price goes down? Do you still get money just by having it? Thanks a lot!

Arnab Bhattacharya says:

Fabulous. ..i have read The intelligent investor. ..but you took out the gist and presented it so lucidly. Salutes

Alfred Cammy says:

Hey, thanks very much for this video. I have mixed feelings because I’m disappointed in learning about the long game, and because I’m 40, I guess it’s too late for me. So you may have saved me a lot of pain and frustration. I’ve been reading the wall street journal, and that is my introduction to the stock market, and from there I’ve discovered you.

I guess you’d tell me it’s too late for me, right?

StockInvesting 360 says:

Well, if you want to succeed on the stock markets, you need to invest on companies that:

– Are profitable
– Are healthy financially (balance sheet)
– Are growing their sales and profits
– Have a positive market sentiments (Professional Analysts)
– Are not too expensive

So there are no quick and easy way to succeed. You need to understand financial statements, and you need to search for good stocks.

That is what we do at StockInvesting360

What do suggest a 60yr. old that has about 10yrs? What would you invest in?


Am I misinterpreting the “buy low, sell high” idea then if you cannot perceive the market like an elevator? At some point shouldn’t you be deciding when the best time to buy into shares? You should be looking at a low point or plateau in the prices of shares right? My main premise and question is: is there an ideal time you should continue funding your portfolio or should you not care and just fund your account on a consistent monthly basis? *Note*. I currently only have my money in vanguard index funds but I am trying to learn about owning shares in individual stocks in addition to my index fund portfolio.

Dominic Sinableng says:

@ryan scribner – thanks again for this video sir! This was a very clear and concise video. Amazing research!

by the way- as of right now im trying to learn about the difference between an ETF Vs an Index fund. Do you have any videos about this difference yet? I was looking on youtube about this and it doesn’t look like there are that many in depth comparisons. Just my two cents in case you didn’t have one yet. thanks!

Maurfin says:

So much information in this video. Thank you Ryan.

Gabriel Molina says:

Amazing video again. Thanks thanks a lot…

Harold Burkett says:

That was a really great video, thank you for putting all of that together. I know the general It YouTube trend is to keep videos 10min or less or people will stop watching, but i appreciate longer in depth videos. I usually listen while i work and it can be a headache to constantly be changing videos. Plus most short videos are to the point, but not always very thorough.

Danish Zeshan says:

What would be great books to read for stock markwt and forex?
