What are Stocks?
Public companies have sold shares in their businesses for hundreds of years. These shares or stocks are traded on stock exchanges across the world. The trade in stocks generates huge revenues, both for corporations and investors.
Stocks rise and fall in value according to the perceived performance and worth of the issuing company. Investors will often seek to exploit drops in stock values, buying shares cheaply in the expectation that they will subsequently rise in value. Many investors recommend retaining a core of more stable stocks (usually of multi-national corporations) as part of a diversified portfolio.
The Fundamentals of Stocks Trading
Stocks trading operates on the basic principle of buying cheaply and selling at a profit.
You buy 100 stocks in Microsoft at $120.62 per share (a total of $12,062). After 2 weeks you resell the stocks and earn profits of $1,983.
How did you do it?
After you bought your Microsoft stocks, the company launched a new version of Windows, and then published a strong Q3 earnings report. More investors started buying Microsoft stocks.
Demand for the stocks continued to grow, increasing its market price. You watched the progress of the stock and decided to sell when the price reached $140.
You sold the stocks for $14,000 – earning an immediate profit of $1,983.
