Your Questions About How To Invest In Stocks

William asks…

whats the best company to invest stock in as of now?

I’m 15 and want to learn how to get easy money by just putting my money in a company. It would really help. I want to get into finance when I’m older.

John answers:

That’s great to hear that you are thinking about saving and investing at such a young age. I would suggest researching renewable energy companies such as solar or wind power. Companies that produce solar panels and parts for wind turbines have sky rocketed in past years.

Don’t worry about the “In India” part. Stock markets work the same everywhere. Read about stock market investing and don’t worry if the examples are from US or European markets.

Jenny asks…

How much money is not enough to invest in stocks and bonds?

I have always wanted to invest in stocks,bonds. But have never known what is the minimum money i need. Can i start investing with $100, $200 or $300? Or do i need thousands?

John answers:

Some brokers have a minimum to open an account.

Scottrade is one that has a very low minimum: $500. The others I am familiar with are in the thousands. Now there is one brokerage firm that I know of that does not have a minimum. TradeKing.

You can start with $100, but the brokerage commission on such a small amount will be significant. With TradeKing their fee is $4.95 which is 5%. That is not a lot for a long term investor but for anyone buying and selling short term, that is a lot. If you were to start with $1000, $4.95 would represent only 1/2 of 1%.
