The Stock Market for Dummies

Learning about the stock market can be a long, painful and complicated task. In order to avoid all the migraines and all the mental disabilities that can be caused by such information overload, there are easy ways to learn all about it. That is of course to read this package: The Stock Market for Dummies. There are a few basic points that everyone needs to know in order to be able to achieve success. Obviously how things work in a stock market is one of them as well as types of stocks and bonds, which one's could bring more profit an 20220v219u d other such boring pieces of information will be very useful to know. Let's start from the beginning.

The stock market is a place where stocks, bonds, or other securities are bought and sold. When you buy stocks or shares in a company you gain part ownership in that company. In today's world people buy stocks in order to gain dividends on money that they have invested. Some advantages of buying stocks over bank deposits; money-market funds or bonds are that stocks have a long historical track. Although the disadvantages of buying stocks are that the market fluctuates very often and the stocks are never guaranteed so you may loose all of the money you have invested.

Before deciding on what type of stock you are going to purchase, you must determine what type of investor you are. There are two types of investors: technicians and fundamentalists. Technicians are investors that tend to buy and sell stocks very quickly. These investors are not interested in book values, dividends or earning although they study the price patterns of that certain stock. Fundamentalists are investors that look for long-term growth in a company. They consider such factors as earning, dividends and book values and are as interested in the price patterns because they are in for long term growth so they know that the market will fluctuate.

When you are buying stocks there are three different types that you may choose from: penny stocks, growth stocks and blue chip stocks. Penny stocks are stocks from a company that has almost no chance of developing into a big company and the stocks are of very little monetary value. These stocks for example would be a chain of local pizza stores that would never make it into the big market of restaurants such as Pizza Hut but would do well in it's local market. Growth stocks are companies that have a high potential to achieve great success, but they can also be very risky investments because they not are well established. An example of this type of company would one that invents a product that may make a big impact on the market similar to when air bags were invented their stocks probably rose drastically. These stocks would be the intermediate level in the purchasing of stocks. The highest level of stock purchasing is buying blue chip stocks. These stocks are of companies that are very well established and have almost no chance of its' stocks dropping drastically. Some of these stocks would be of companies such as McDonald's Corp., General Motors Corp., Coca-Cola Co., etc. Although blue chip stocks are the best stocks to invest in, they can also be very expensive limiting you to only buy a few of that companies shares. Often when the price of a stock plateaus, the company decided to split it's stock. When this occurs you receive more stock for your money already invested. But when your companies stock splits two for one you get twice the amount of stock but the value of that stock depreciates by 50%. Reverse splitting means that the stock double in value although you only get to keep half the stocks you had before. Any way the stock may split you will not loose your money.

In any companies stock they are two different types of stocks you can buy: Common Stock and Preferred Stock. Common stock in a company shows you that you own a fraction of a company. Since common stock has a high potential for gain they are the last person to receive their dividends after those who own preferred stock. Preferred stock is sold to the public after all the common stock is sold. Companies who are going out of business have to pay out their preferred stock owners first because they have paid a higher premium for that same stock. Preferred stock owners only receive a fixed dividend payment making it the only drawback for people to purchase this type of stock.

After you have decided what type of stock to purchase you must find a broker. This person will only take orders to buy and sell stock tickets. Every brokerage firm has two types of brokers. Stockbroker's help by giving advise to on investing and by doing research on stocks. Discount brokers are the "middle man" of buying and selling stocks and do not research or give advise. After you find a broker, all that you have to do is give him or her a call when wanting to buy or sell your stock.

After reading this, you probably have a huge headache, well we mean everyone who's read this has. But we can assure you that you have learned at least only piece of information about the stock market that you did not know before. And that's why this package was put together, to inform 'not smart' people about the stock market. Most of the important things were covered in here but again it is all up to you to apply your skills, which many people are lacking. The only thing that this package does not guarantee is success and wealth. This would keep our readers from suing us, the publishers of this package. Good luck and have fun losing money.
