Many people look at the share market as a place for legalised gambling, where every morning people place bets and win or lose small or big amounts of money. The Honest Truth is that this is exactly what seems to be happening for many of them. At least until they get tired of betting.
When I first said that buying good solid companies with potential for growth will give you superior returns over long term than any fixed income scheme, not many believed us. When it happened for those who believed, they doubted their own ability and gave credit to a rising market trend. I guess people are reluctant to believe that they can make profits in stocks, even when they do it on their own.
In this little E-book, I have written about The Honest Truth of Stock Investing.
Why did I title it The Honest Truth? Because it covers some of the most basic yet important lessons on investment education. Some people learn these lessons the hard way (and after losing a lot of money in the markets); some never do. These simple lessons form the contents of what we call The Honest Truth about stock investing.
► What is the Stock Market?
► Why Invest – A Case for Equity Investing.
► Why do you need to learn?
► Do you understand your ‘Purpose’?
► How much should you learn?
► Essentials of Reading.
► You know the basics. Don’t lie to yourself.
► Are you able to spot marketing gimmicks?
► Be realistic.
► Afterword: Finally, simplify and take it easy.
