What is the best way to learn about stocks?

Question Jaish

Before investing money in stocks, it is important to learn about the stock just as you would when making any other investment decision. Stocks are not always easy to understand unless you understand the market or have had a personal experience with the company. Nevertheless, there are a few different ways that you can learn about stocks which I will discuss here.

Firstly, you must select a broker. There are two main types of brokers; full-service brokers who offer advice, recommendations and research for buying and selling stocks, or non-advisory brokers who simply execute your buy and sell orders. As a result, full-service brokers charge a higher brokerage fee than non-advisory brokers. Despite this, using a full-service broker can be a good way to learn more about specific stocks and build your confidence in entering the stock market.

The second option is to read books. There are thousands of books aimed at the beginner, intermediate and experienced stock market investors that you can use to gain a better understanding of how the stock market works. A few recommendations to consider are;

  • A Random Walk Down Wall Street (By Burton Malkiel)
  • The Little Book of CommonSense Investing (By Jack Bogle)
  • How to Make Money in Stocks (By William O’Neil)
  • Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (By Edwin Lefèvre)
  • Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (By Roger Lowenstein)
  • How to Make Money in Stocks (By William O’Neil)
  • Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (By Edwin Lefèvre)
  • Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (By Roger Lowenstein)

Finally, you could find a mentor to help you understand the market and how to chose specific stocks for your portfolio. A good mentor should have a core understanding of the stock market and have experience trading stocks in the sector that aligns with the stock that you are interested in purchasing. But remember, not everyone is an expert and you should carefully consider their experience and credibility before you act on their advice.
