Stock Market Guide Reveals Basic Workings of the Market and How to Invest

The Stock Market Today, a new book by Greg Mason, covers the basics of how the stock market works and what to avoid before investing in it.

The Stock Market Today – How the Stock Market Works and The Basic Pitfalls to Avoid, by Greg Mason, has been released, giving readers insight needed to understand the market before risking an investment. It opens with a chapter asking the reader if they are investing for growth or income. A window is thus opened into the mindset of the investor prior to their jump into the market.

The second chapter covers how to find a strategy for stock market investing, which is followed by a chapter on how the market actually works. A synopsis on analyzing the stock market is next, and then readers get information on how to choose a broker, how to find the right mix for their stock portfolio, and how to research a company. Since so much of successful investing is about timing, the book also provides a chapter on knowing the right time to buy stock, and the right time to sell it.

Going on to talk about how to spot trends in the market, the book also assists readers in identifying their risk tolerance for investing. Getting a sense of how much risk one can take on, however, is just the beginning. Stock market industries are covered next, and then chapters on signs stocks have reached bottom or have hit their peak. Several tips on reading stock charts are provided next, contributing to the plethora of information intended to make readers aware of the stock market’s basic functions.

Additional chapters talk about bull and bear markets, indexes, the risks of stock investing, and the benefits of market cap to an investor. Readers then get an idea of what exactly their role is as a stockholder. While most people invest to gain something, the book also reveals why it can be a smart move to take a loss in the stock market. There is also information on who is best to turn to for advice.

After learning much about the market and why companies sell stock, readers also get a chapter on how important it is to not mix emotions with investing. The book then ends on a chapter about the benefits of a mutual fund. The Stock Market Today – How the Stock Market Works and The Basic Pitfalls to Avoid is available now to anyone wishing to start investing wisely.

Chapter 1 - Are You Investing for Growth or Income?

This is an interesting question and one that needs to be asked before you invest in the stock market. Your answer will determine the types of stocks you invest in. A Growth investment is one where you expect to see an increasing price value of your stock over time. Stocks bought for growth are not expected to give immediate rewards. You have invested in growth stocks for a period of time and need to be patient to see your value increase.

Growth investments don’t always provide you with a regular stream of money. A company experiencing growth will be seen to reinvest its profits into building its business base, whether that be through new equipment, new products or staff increases. If the company continues to do well you will see an increase in the stock value, which is a good thing!

A variety of stocks, mutual funds and real estate are viewed as growth investments; these might be stocks of companies going through rapid growth, growth mutual funds or growth unit investment trusts. As an investor you may look at past performance of companies that appear to be ‘growth’ investments, but you need to be aware that past performance is not a guarantee of future results. However growth investments do have the potential to reap greater rewards, in the long term, than income investments or combined growth and income investments.

The drawback of growth investments is that regular dividends are usually not forth-coming, or much smaller than income investments. Because of this lack of dividend output, prices of growth investment stock can be quite unstable. Income investments are basically that – investments that will provide you with an on-going income. These types of investments (sometimes called value investments) include certificates of deposit, bonds and fixed annuities.

Income investments generally work in reverse with interest rates. If interest rates decrease, your bond prices will go up and vice versa. Income investments pay regular dividends. If you’re not sure which is better for you, you can invest in a Growth and Income package. These investments provide potential growth through rising stock prices and supply income through dividends. Growth and Income investments can include common stocks with dividends, equity mutual funds with dividends and funds involving real estate trusts.

Dividend income through Growth and Income investments usually gives greater price stability than pure growth investments. There are also Aggressive income investments which can offer a higher yield but the risks are greater with this type of fund. These investments include corporate and municipal bonds and will generally decrease in worth when interest rates rise. Some aggressive investments will pay high dividends but these may disappear at any time. Others will pay no dividends but trade at high prices. If you are able to wait for your investment to yield results, a growth investment might be preferential for you. If you need a regular income, such as retirees, then an income investment might be more your style.

Chapter 2 - Finding a Strategy for Stock Market Investing

There is no one, sure-fire recipe to invest in the stock market successfully. However you can set yourself a plan, and stick to it. Investing in the stock market doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple or as complicated as you have the time for. Your investment strategy should suit you and your lifestyle. If you want to become a day trader then you need to offer yourself to the stock market on a full-time basis. But if you want to enter the stock market as an
