Well, seems like we’re in a resession. And there is always a lot of money to be make if the market is low. Which bank do you use?

Best of luck to you! I have also dabbled in the stock market for a while now, and as of current make around $10,000 a year. Nothing extremely great, but considering the amount of work involved, it is well worth the investment.

I will tell you this, you are on the right track, patience is the key to success with stocks. When I first started I thought hey I will drop a few hundred in the market and cash out in a few weeks, never happened. It took some time, but it has been a learning experience. Again good luck, hope everything works out for you.

Good move for you. Of course your dividend increases just as your investment also increase.

The last word in your post is the most important! It’s good that you know that up front.

Get your dividends paid in shares initially. your not going to do anything with $11 so reinvest it in the stock rather than getting the cash. When you have say $50 div then maybe start getting soime of it in cash.

Dump it if it falls too much, maybe 20%. Why hold on to a looser? Buy something else. Good luck!

I have invested a small amount, but the stock went down so have to be patient if it ever comes back. How do you pick which stock to buy? Have you ever tried forex? I’ve heard so many things and about programs to help you, it’s just so confusing. I would sure like to figure it all out!

I have often thought about investing in stock market, but then I thought that perhaps commodities would be a better investment-think about it-oil, metals such as copper, and other products go up in price every day. Investing in commodiities would be the wiser choice, I think.

I hope it ends all good for you

I agree, investing in commodities is a little bit more predictable, especially with finite resources available and ever-increasing prices.

Investing in the stock market is something I’ve always thought about doing. Good luck with it.

I have considered playing around a little with some stocks. Nothing large and not a lot of cash, just mostly to get my feet wet.
I hope you keep us updated on your progress.

How many shares did you buy?

I heard that your income depends if the company is making money or not. If they don’t make money, you will loose your money. Sort of like that , is this true?

tough time to have gotten in – any updates?

Thanks for sharing idea on share stoke exchange.Fortune Investor has some of the best columns – “Street Life” is my favorite. It has a stock/mutual fund pick, links to online Fortune, Money and Time and gives you and old fashioned ticker (NYSE and NASDAQ) in a separate window. Like most stock sites, it will track your portfolio.

stock market is the best source for investment opportunities. But it is a very big hassle to buy shares from stock markets.

Awesome to hear that you are growing your money via the stock market! It sounds like you are going for dividend growth rather than growth in price. Have you heard of DRIP plans, DRIP stands for Dividend Re-Investment Plan. You can begin with as little as one share, and other companies want you to begin with a few thousand dollar investment, but you transfer shares you own or you can begin it with the investment manager of the company and you do not pay a commission when you buy new shares. You will pay a small commish when you sell your position, but it is much less than it would be with a broker. There are some plans out there that even give a discount when you buy with them. Beware though because some plans charge more, so do your homework, but I own a few and I feel that these are the best way to go as far as dividend growth is concerned. In the interest of fair disclosure I do not offer or promote DRIP plans, I am just trying to add to the discussion.
