  Advice  

  • Professional investors rely on many of these same websites to research potential investments.


  • For beginning investors it may feel overwhelming, in which case take it one decision at a time.


  • Before picking websites, determine what information and features are most important to you.


  • It’s always good to get your information from at least two different sources so you can cross-check opinions to gain a complete understanding of the market and your potential investment.


  • As a general rule of thumb, each stock you buy should only be a maximum of 5% of your total portfolio to minimize your downside risk.


  • Most successful investors follow the “buy and hold” approach and ignore the periodic share price dips.
