Tips for Investing Your Money in Stocks - The Ultimate Guide

Personal_Finance / Investing 2021 Aug 04, 2021 - 05:54 PM GMT

By: Mark_Adan


There are many ways of investing your money. Some of these ways include stocks, casino gambling, real estate, among others. If you want to invest your money in stocks, this is the right guide for you.

Successful investors use these tips to win, manage their emotions, and keep perspectives.

It is recommended that you don't invest more than 10% in individual stocks. The others should be low-cost mutual funds. However, if you need the money in five years, don't invest it in stocks.

Let's dive into these tips:

Consider Your Emotions

Remember that success in investing will not correlate with your IQ. You need temperament of controlling your urges which get investors into trouble while investing.

If you are an investor who allows your head and not guts to drive your investment decision, be careful. This is because trading overactivity but triggered by emotions is a common way to hurt your portfolio returns.

Pick Companies, Avoid sticker Symbols

The other tip is to avoid stock picking become your abstract concept. This is because when you buy shares from companies, you become part owners. So, you have to know how the specific company will operate, its position in the industry, a long-term prospect, and if it will bring a new thing to the portfolio of your business.

Plan Ahead

As an investor, you may be tempted to change your relationship status with the stocks. However, when you make a heart-of-the-moment decision may lead to a classic investing gaffe - where you buy high but sell low.

Write down the things that make every stock you have in your portfolio worthy of commitment. So, when buying, consider things that make it attractive to the company and opportunities you can see in the future. These are also the metrics that will matter and milestones you will use to judge your progress.

The other tip, consider things that can make you sell. Sometimes, you will get a good reason for you to split up. If that's the case, compose an investing prenup that will spell out things that will drive you to sell the stocks. It is not about stock price movement, particularly the short term. They are the fundamental changes for the business that can affect the ability to grow in the long term.

For example, the company can lose a major customer, a major viable competitor may emerge, the CEO successor will start to take the company in a different direction, or the investment thesis will not pan out for a reasonable period.

Build Up Positions Gradually

The time for an investor will act as a superpower. Successful investors buy stocks because there are rewards they get through dividends, share price appreciation, among others over the years.

In other words, you can also invest in stocks too.

Avoid Trading Overactivity

Check your stocks quarterly to get the reports. However, it will be hard for you to keep an eye on the scoreboard. So, this is something that may lead to overreacting to the events.

If your stocks experience a sharp price movement, find out the causes of the event.
