Your Questions About Investing Tips

Susan asks…

What is the best way to increase my funds?

I want to have a sucess life and i some investing tips Please help!!

John answers:

– Set aside a specific amount each paycheck.
– Invest that through sharebuilder.com on an ETFs such as iShares MSCI EAFE Index Fund (ETF).
– Once that amount cumulates to more than $3000, invest the lump sum in a Vanguard index fund.
– Keep contributing the specific amount to that investment account.

– always look for tax-deferred way of saving such as 401k or IRA accounts.

Hi, I am a freshman in college and im interested in finance. I have some money in my savings account and with my summer job more money will roll in.

I have an account with chase and i was wondering if i can invest my money from there? Can anyone give me tips on how to get started with investing? much appreciated 🙂

John answers:

Before you start investing you have to educate yourself about financial markets and financial instruments. First, read scholarly, peer-reviewed articles; secondly, get some market data for stocks that interest you and study them analytically. Maybe you can find the S&P500 or Dow Jones Industrial end of day and intraday stock market data on the web or simply buy it on ebay if it’s still there.

Mary asks…

Tips for Investing in stocks?

I have recently started to research stocks and have read that things such as a high return on equity or a low p/e ratio are signs of a good investment. I have found many companies that meet these criteria but are in fact no good investments. How can a company meet these criteria and still be a bad investment and what other factors are important to a good investment?

John answers:

The most important factor in driving the price of a stock is Buyers.

Without buyers, the price of the stock will fall, if there are many buyers, the price of the stock will increase all this regardless of how good the fundamentals are.

You can have the greatest stock in the world with the greatest products of all times and sales that are going through the roof, AND if no one wants the stock, the price will go no where.

Mandy asks…

I have $10000 dollars and i want to invest any tips?

I need some ideas to invest I want some tips if anybody can help please let me know thanks

John answers:

Your question is too generic hence the answer is very subjective.

Should consider the following factors before anyone can answer your question:
1. Expected return
2. Risk tolerance (How much volatility can you take?)
3. Liquidity (Do you need to cash out regularly from your portfolio?)
4. Time horizon
5. Tax

There are thousands of investment opportunities out there, no one can give you a definite answer without the above information.

If you insist for an answer, I would recommend ETFs on China stocks. They are dirt cheap now, but the risk is high.
