Stock Market Basics For Beginners
Why Buy Stocks - Advantages
Stocks and Shares?

money into a savings account and letting it grow form the interest you
Well perhaps it would be safer, but recent events have shown us that
is not foolproof, however, the main reason for investing or
trading in the Stock
Market is to try to maximize returns on your
savings. Income from investments can provide a very healthy supplement
to your regular income or pension and for some it can be a means of
earning a living too.
Some stock markets saw quite a lot wiped off their values following the
highs in 2007 but the statistics suggest that over the long term,
generally, have been the best form of investment and some of the top
traders were telling us pretty much near the lows, that it was the best
time to buy stocks.
From the low in Mar 2009, in less than a year, the Dow Jones Industrial Average
(DJIA), Ftse 100 (UKX)
and Standard and Poors
500 stock indexes all gained 50-60% so as you can
see, even in times like these there are opportunities and fantastic
returns to be made from trading
stocks and shares.
Why Buy Stocks - Dividends
Another important consideration to take into account of why to buy
stocks is that owning an ordinary share of a company
you to a share of the profits. Many companies that make a profit will
reward its shareholders with a dividend
payment as a means of
distributing those profits to shareholders.
Dividends are commonly paid twice a year. An interim dividend
then a final dividend
based on their profits for their financial
A company can also pay out a special
dividend as a one off means of
returning surplus cash to investors.
Many companies will offer their stockholders
additional perks or
discounts. They use this to as a means of encouraging them to use the
companys products and to hold onto their shares as a long term
investment, thus helping to maintain stability on the share price. This
should not be considered on its own as a reason for buying any
particular stock but it can be an added bonus and is another reason why
buying stocks can be worthwhile.
who own and operate a chain of theme parks including Sea World and
Busch Gardens offer a 15% discount on the regular admission price to
some of its parks. You can also get 20-30% discount on orders from
their promotional products catalog.
There are many Shareholder
discount schemes like this one from all
around the world and some of them offer these to shareholders with as
little as one share. Others will stipulate a minimum number of shares
required to be held in order to receive the discounts or perks.
Why buy Stocks - Risks
The obvious risk is the worst case scenario where the company that you
hold shares in goes bankrupt. As a holder of Ordinary shares you would
be very unlikely to see any of your investment returned to you.
You are bottom of the heap and once everyone else such as the tax man
and any creditors or customers that have paid money for goods they did
not receive, all get a share of anything salvaged from the sale of any
assets the company had, it is very unlikely for there to be anything
left for you.
Even in the good times, the stock
market can be very volatile and share
prices can move against you quite substantially in a very
of time so it is
important not to invest anything that you can not afford to lose or be
willing to tie up for any length of time.
