Share Investing Strategies:
To help succeed in the sharemarket there are a number of tried and true strategies worth adapting to suit your income, goals and aspirations:
Think Long Term of your Share Investments
Look for companies that present good value and above-average profit growth. If you are choosing to invest over trading shares, always think long term. Don’t go looking for quick gains through active trading.
Diversify Your Share Investing
Depending on your investment goals and risk appetite, you would diversify your holdings. Fluctuations of individual stocks leave you exposed to certain risks if you put all your eggs in one basket. Invest in a few different company shares across different industries.
Market liquidity refers to shares that can be easily sold if you need cash at short notice. This is one of the advantages of the sharemarket over property. Most shares, especially the blue chip companies (those in the top 200 largest listed companies) are very liquid stocks because millions of their shares are traded each day.
Actively Monitor Your Share Investments
Shares need to be monitored. For most portfolios, all that is necessary is that you read the newspapers to track their rises and falls. However, more volatile shares, such as exploration companies, may need to be monitored by the hour.
