Let's learn from the successful

 Everyone interested in investing in stocks, I guess, has at least heard of him. Author of books and "teacher" of the next generations of financiers. Benjamin Graham is one of the successful professional investors, researcher of financial markets, and lecturer at Columbia University. Graham was the first to clearly distinguish investing from speculating. It defines investments as stock market operations carried out based on detailed analysis, from which a satisfactorily high return can be expected at a low level of risk. Any other way of trading, according to him, is speculative. He has indeed left a lot of materials with which we can gain knowledge. But certainly, his principles are interesting and qualitatively oriented. Principle No. 1 Always invest within safe limits This is a principle for buying a stock at a significant discount from its intrinsic value, which assumes, in addition to bringing a high return, but also minimizing risk. This concept is very important for investors to note that value buying can provide significant gains after the market inevitably revalues the stock and raises it to its fair value. It also provides downside protection if things don't go as planned and the business takes a nosedive. Principle #2 Expect volatility and profit from it Investing in stocks means dealing with volatility. Instead of fleeing the market during turmoil, the smart investor welcomes corrections as a chance to find excellent buying opportunities. Use it to find good deals or take profits when investments become too overvalued. And remember, Graham's philosophy was, first and foremost, to protect capital and then try to grow it. Principle #3 Know what kind of investor you are. Graham advises every investor to know themselves. To illustrate this, he makes a clear distinction between the different groups operating in the stock market: Speculators vs. Investors. Not all people in the market are investors. Graham believed that it was very important for everyone to determine whether they were an investor or a speculator. The difference is simple: the investor views the stock as part of a business and a shareholder, the owner of that business, while the speculator views himself as a player in expensive securities with no intrinsic value. Look in the mirror and ask yourself this question. Am I a speculator or an investor? If you feel like an investor, you are likely to stay longer on the stock market. Because you believe that this business can feed you. If you feel like a speculator, you are much more likely to beat the market than an investor. But there are always little problems in life. As a speculator, you will pay much more fees. Load frequent purchases and sales. The probability of hitting a mine under your feet increases. Everything in life is not luck.

Follow the money - a rule for every investor.

 Many people really follow the big players where they invest. They think that when they buy it is right and important. The big players keep an eye on the company's revenue. They are looking to take advantage of the dividend Then they can part with at least half of their investment in this company. It is more important to monitor what people like and what they spend their money on. Those companies that offer a good product have at least a few years in advance to have competition or to produce a good product themselves. But when we look at our daily lives, what we spend money on is very important. Look in the store which product runs out the fastest. Which thing is most important to us and we constantly give our money for it. Then who is the manufacturer and you can get to the important question for you. Is it worth investing my money there, so that even if I buy a product from this manufacturer, it will return to me as a dividend? This is not to be ignored. At least that's what I think. Whether the utility company or the Internet provider. Whether the local store. The idea is to answer the questions in as little time as possible. Just try to answer the questions and then search for the answers.. They are the factor, whether their goods are good and whether they will be bought. When there are many buyers for a commodity, its price rises. Or vice versa. But is it worth buying a stock that will return the money after more than twenty years? Just because she's famous. Don't allow yourself to have some bad manager during this period and drown at the end of the river.

The company itself has the income and can afford the dividend

Investing in a utility company can provide a steady stream of income. Utility companies are generally regulated, which can provide some stability and predictability for investors. Utility companies often have strong balance sheets and generate a lot of cash flow, which can make them attractive investments. Utility companies can be a good way to diversify a portfolio. There are many different types of utility companies, so investors can find one that fits their investment goals. But in reality, their incomes are known. Accept yourself as a regular payer. Assume that your neighbor is also a payer. Thus, all users of their services are payers. The company itself has the income and can afford the dividend. Another thing is that the stock market has a crisis. The company will always have these customers. Or something like a plague to wipe people out. Realistically speaking, you don't expect a sharp rise in the share price. But you can always expect it to drip a little. For me, it is mandatory for an investor to have at least one utility company in their portfolio. This is my opinion. This is not a recommendation to buy at the end of the day everyone has an opinion. Not everyone can win, there must be losers.

Investing in times of crisis - my opinion

 Everything during a crisis goes downhill. As normal as a person gets sick, he is not in great shape. Mother Nature finds a way to remind us. Because people get carried away and very quickly forget themselves. Ever since the world can remember, there have been crises and there always will be. As the sieve sifts, so the market also sifts. Some will sink because they didn't do their homework. Others because they have lied. But the crisis allows the better and far-seeing. A simple example. For example, a very farsighted person even if he sees that the fruits are already despised will figure out what to do. Will make vinegar or fruit wine. You have to recognize those companies that have a future and bet on them. Not the ones you like or are well-liked by others. The biggest mistake of the small investor is to target the top ten large companies. Because their market valuation is growing by large percentages. Are their revenues growing at the same rate? Better in companies in utility services that, regardless of the crisis, we continue to use their services. But without risk, there is no future. But in most cases, now is the time to take a risk. Time will tell if the investment was worth it. In the right companies that have a future. It's good to trust your instincts sometimes.No ads and experts direct people to certain companies. I'm just expressing my own opinion on the matter. Because I do it myself.

Would I invest in Canadian stocks - I only express my own opinion

Investing in Canadian stocks - Would I invest in Canadian stocks. My answer is yes.  Why. A country that is one of the most democratic. There are many well-positioned companies in the Global 2000. But one cannot invest in everything. He has to choose a company which can increase his money. In practice, there are also many that are related. I personally would choose only five companies. I will not mention it. The first is in the finance sector. You can pick two but split equally between the two. The second is in transport with railways. The third one is in the energy sector. Fourth necessarily which extracts raw materials. Fifth necessarily with real estate management. That's basically my motto no matter where the companies are located. We always make the best choice by sympathy or what is drilled into our memory from advertisements. But it is better to check back at least ten years to see if these companies were doing well. The other option is to buy from those companies that you really use. So that your money, which you use in everyday life to charge your car or the bank that serves you, also earns from you.  In Canada, there are many penny stocks that are not to be underestimated. Always gather information then invest your money. Don't blame someone else for bad choices. Nothing is ever guaranteed to be good forever. I only express my own opinion. I am not agitating anyone towards anything.

Investor quotes from great investors

Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure? It's to see my dividends coming in.

John D. Rockefeller

One of the funny things about the stock market is that every time one person buys, another sells, and both think they are astute.

William Feather

To beat the market you'll have to invest serious bucks to dig up information no one else has yet.

Merton Miller

1."Never invest in a business you don't understand."

2."The 19th century belongs to England, the 20th century belongs to the USA, and the 21st century belongs to China. Invest accordingly."

3. Stocks are not ordinary pieces of paper. They represent partial ownership of a business. So when considering an investment, think like a future owner.

4. Always invest only in assets you know well!

5. Rule number 1: Never lose money! Rule number 2: Never forget rule number 1!

6. Whether it's stocks or socks, I like to buy quality goods at low prices.

7. Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

For many people, these are just quotes from Buffett, but they should be rules for every investor

My opinion Investing in real estate

My recommendation is if you really have the opportunity you should do it.
But I recommend you really read a bit more before you put your money in. There are countries where they have more yield on property. Not just states but regions. The determining factor is close to jobs and good communication. Yes, you can buy property, but if it doesn't bring you income you just throw your money somewhere in the woods. I have bitter experience of such properties. You get lured by the low price. Yes, but you also freeze that money. Always follow the 30/30/3 rule for buying property as a minimum. Whether it is a personal purchase or an investment. For me, this is the rule for a successful purchase, but I never use credit. The best thing is if you don't have money for your own investment in property you can invest in Property Management Funds.
Because every month you can invest a little bit. The best are REITs which by law even pay up to 90 percent of their profits. The little money you have can bring you income. Instead of piling up in the bank and inflation melting it down.

Investing in shares - my personal opinion

Honestly, I prefer to invest in them. When my kid asked me what a stock was. I answered very briefly and understood. But this is my thinking. It's kind of a brick of a building. If you have a lot of money you can directly buy a house apartment and so on. But generally, people don't have that much money to buy a big business /huge building/. They can buy shares of that business. This business may be huge but one can afford to buy as many bricks/shares / for as much money. If this business generates revenue profit is distributed to each brick /share/ equally. Of course, after taxes are paid and a decision is made to distribute to the owners of the bricks /share/. Basically, the management of this business tries to earn more and thus proves how skilled they are to run them. So the money invested for the bricks /shares/ can bring in more revenue. If the money stays in the jar there is no way it will increase. If we leave it to the bank it may give us some interest rate depending on many factors but no more than avoiding inflation. What stocks you choose to buy depends on what type of person you are. Led by the crowd for more money. The ones you like.The ones you think are good for people and the future. It's all about thinking. The truth is simple. Everyone wants to have more money. But I at least realized that you don't have to have a lot of money but you just have to learn to manage it or put it where it moves and it increases on its own. But to achieve success we come back to the first rule of success. You have to invest in yourself to learn a lot about what you want. To be able to shortcut the mistakes made by others. Definitely back to the repository of information /books/. Then in habits and character overcome fear and start building your dream of being a successful stock investor.

Hence, when making an investment, it is wise to invest the allocated resources carefully by going through proper research as to why the company is bringing in new shares in exchange for money or a portfolio of shares, why do they want to do this fundraising activity? Is it urgent for them to launch new shares if they have not faced any serious problems in running all their operations smoothly, how have these shares been doing recently and what are their investors' expectations from them?
