There are always reasons to be wary when anyone offers you a chance to make money. The stock market happens to be one of the most sound means of investment available, but there are very serious risks. The most obvious way to reduce risk is to spread your investments out over as many stocks as possible, but there may be a better way. You can also reduce risk by spreading your investment out over as much time as possible.
We are talking here about investing not in the stock market, but through the stock market. We are talking about finding the companies that simply have the best chance of being far, far bigger in two, five, ten, or even twenty years. For that reason, we won’t be looking at trend lines, or analyst upgrades, or earnings surprises, only global trends and the companies poised to ride them.
Remember to think of these ideas as just that, ideas, and do your own research before investing.
