How To Invest Your Money For The Best Possible Returns

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever wondered how your mutual funds really work in the hands of your professional investment manager? Although it may not be a good idea for you to handle your mutual funds and other financial investment personally, it would not hurt you to understand some of the basics concepts involved in investment handling.

There are many advantages that you can derive if you understand the basics of the stock market. First, understanding the movement of the stock market will help you determine whether or not your investment will be growing in heaps in the next few years.

Second, it would help you forecast your earning potentials so that you can actually foresee how much you will be earning even after you have retired. To understand what is a stock market, let us first define what is a stock. A stock is a certificate of proportional ownership on a company. Note that big companies have shared ownership, meaning, there are many people, organizations and other corporations who has ownership over it. The shared ownership is facilitated through the distribution of stocks based on the amount invested by the person, organization and other entities over the company. The ownership of stockholders over the company is proportional in the sense that the value and the number of your stocks in a company would determine the degree of ownership you have over the company.

If you own stocks in certain companies, you can actually share in the profits that the company will make over a certain period. Companies usually give out dividends or profit shares to their shareholders at the end of the fiscal year or the calendar year depending on the accounting cycle used by the company. For companies that are really doing well, they sometimes give dividends more than once a year.

This could be very beneficial to shareholders who invest a large sum of money in the form of stocks in the company. Another way for you to earn on the shares of stock that you get from a company, is because the value of shares of stocks tend to appreciate if the company is doing really well. If the company is listed in the stock exchange you could actually cash in your investment for a handsome profit when the value of the stocks appreciate.

Is it possible to really earn a lot of money investing in stocks? There have been many people who got rich investing in the stock market but there are also some who lost their shirt in this venture. You must understand that the stock market could be volatile every now and then. The key here is to be really ahead of the game by keeping close watch of your investments and the movement of the market. Or that would be the job of your professional investment manager.
