Finding the Right Investment

Finding the right investment can be difficult. There are a lot of companies to chose from. When you’re just starting to invest, long term investments are usually the best. The only problem is long term investments usually involve investing in blue chip companies, which can be quite expensive for a beginner investor. Try saving up your money and investing in big companies with somewhat low stock prices such as Microsoft, Mattel, Starbucks, and Nike. Don’t go for big investments like Google and Amazon unless you have thousands of dollars to do it. When you’re looking for a great stock to invest in, think about the companies you already love. Do you think  they’ll grow. If you like the company and you’ll think the company will grow more in the future do some research. Find out things like how much debt they have and where their CEO went to university. Companies that you like are bound to be liked by others too. One very important thing to do is to never invest in an industry you have very little knowledge about and aren’t interested in. It’s always safer to invest in an industry you know a lot about and are interested in. Even the top investors refuse to invest in something they know almost nothing about.

That’s all for now, Ben
