In this episode of All About Business the Podcast we give a brief overview of stocks, debate which types of stocks are better, and let you know what stock to invest in.
Segment 1: What are stocks?
In this segment I will give a brief overview on what stocks are, how they work, and where you can start investing.
- A stock is a type of investment that represents an ownership share in a company. Investors usually buy stocks in hopes that the price will increase so they can sell and receive a profit. Companies benefit from this because they receive the money from investors that purchase stocks and they can invest this money into their company/business.
- Buying and selling stock seems easy at first, until you realize the risks involved.
- Fluctuating Prices: Many stocks fluctuate a lot. This means that the price of the stock increases and decreases quickly. This means if you invest a lot in a fluctuating stock there is a high chance you could lose a large portion or even most of your investment. This can be a huge problem for companies if they invest primarily in a few fluctuating stocks. If these stocks lose value these companies could go bankrupt. This is why most companies and people diversify.
- Diversifying: In this case it means that people or companies will invest in multiple different stocks instead of a few stocks. This way in case a couple stocks lose value you have other investments that you can rely on.
- There are many ways to invest in stock, here a couple websites (I will include the links in the show notes):
- Fidelity Investments: https://www.fidelity.com/trading/overview
- TD Ameritrade: https://www.tdameritrade.com/
- Charles Schwab: https://www.schwab.com/open-an-account
- Robinhood: https://robinhood.com/us/en/
- E-Trade: https://us.etrade.com/home
- There are also many different types of stocks, a few of them are:
- Common Stock
- Preferred Stock
- Large-cap stocks
- Mid-cap stocks
- Small-cap stocks
- Domestic stocks
- International stocks
- Blue chip stocks
- Volatile stocks
- In the next segment we will be debating which type of stock is better, Blue chip or volatile. If you want to learn more about the other types of stocks I will include a link in the show notes (https://www.fool.com/investing/stock-market/types-of-stocks/) that you can check out. See you in the next segment.
