How to Make Money in the Stock Market -- Growth & Value Investing
 
04:54
Hey I'm Fool.com editor Nick Sciple, and on this episode of FAQ we're answering the question you've all been asking: How DO you make money in the stock market? People invest to make money: plain and simple. Except in special circumstances, like shorting a stock, investors buy a stock with the hopes that it will increase in value, allowing him or her to sell the shares later at a higher price and pocket the difference as profit. But how can we know that a stock is going to go up -- before we buy it? In the short term, stocks go up or down for an endless number of reasons, from military conflict and news releases all the way down to individual Tweets. However, there's only one reason a stock prices increase or decrease over the long term [which is all that matters]: to match the value of a company's assets and cash flows. As Ben Graham famously said, "In the short run, the market is a voting machine, vacillating based on the news of the day, but in the long run, it is a weighing machine, measuring the actual value of a business." Now that we know why a stock's value increases over the long term, we can answer how to make money in the stock market. There are 2 ways make money in the stock market: buy a company for less than it's worth OR buy a company at a fair value and hold it as it grows over time. Imagine I offered to trade you a $1000 car for 500 bucks. Would you take it? Most of you probably said yes -- Free 500 bucks, right? You know you can take that car, and with patience and effort, find a buyer for the car's full value. Maybe the seller didn't want to put in that effort, didn't know what the car was really worth, or for whatever reason, needed the car gone quick. and that's why she sold it to you. This same thing often happens in the stock market: a stock falls out of favor, whether due to bad news around the company, market volatility, or innumerable other reasons, and its price falls below what the company would be worth to a reasonable purchaser based on its earnings and assets. Intelligent investors can then purchase shares of the company for less than the company itself is worth, and just like with the car, sell the shares for a tidy profit once the market realizes its mistake. Also like the car, it may take a long time to find a buyer, markets can remain irrational for a long period of time. However, this strategy has been among the most successful in the history of investing. This approach, buying shares of companies for less than the resale value of the company as a whole, is known as value investing, and has been used for decades by famous investors as Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham to build incredible wealth. Now, imagine I offered to sell you a grocery store in a small town of 100 people for fair value. This grocery store is the only one in town, everyone in town shops there for all their food, and it’s profitable. You know that in 5 years a new factory will be built in the town bringing 500 new people to the area and the total population up to 600 people. Would you take my offer? Of course you would! You know that in 5 years the grocery store will have 6 times as many customers as it has today. With a larger customer base, it should pull in even more money, making the store look extremely undervalued in 5 years! This same phenomenon often occurs in the stock market. For example, when Amazon went public in 1997, it enjoyed a market value of around $450 million. Over the ensuing 20 years as consumer preferences have shifted toward e-commerce and the company has wrangled emerging trends like cloud computing, streaming games, and advertising, Amazon's earnings have skyrocketed by 34,000% as it has enjoyed growth in those markets and the company now holds a market value of ¾ of a trillion dollars. For investors who were patient -- and confident-- enough to hold the company for the long term, through 50%+ selloffs, competitive risks, and probably some boredom, Amazon has provided life-changing returns. This investing style, buying companies with promise for future growth and holding for the long term to realize benefits from growth, is known as growth investing and has been used by investors like Phillip Fisher and The Motley Fool's Gardner Brothers to great success. Whether you invest for value or growth -- or you shoot for some of both -- successful investing requires knowledge and patience: ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

3 Top Marijuana Stock Picks

There are dozens of marijuana stocks that investors can consider buying, but not every marijuana stock is equal. It's only early-days for the marijuana industry and while the $150 billion market offers significant potential, many marijuana upstarts are likely to fail. Given bankruptcy risks and recent sky-high stock market valuations, it's gotten increasingly harder to separate the wheat from the chaff. In this clip from The Motley Fool's Industry Focus: Healthcare, analyst Shannon Jones asks guests Todd Campbell, Sean Williams, and Keith Speights: What marijuana stocks are smart buys now? Tune in to find out why Organigram (NASDAQOTH: OGRMF), Aphria Inc.

2 Industries to Invest in 2019, and 2 Poised to Plunge

Picking great stocks can be tricky, but you can do it successfully -- and helping individual investors do it is pretty much our raison d’etre at The Motley Fool. So if you’re ready to add more companies to your portfolio, we always have suggestions. As Motley Fool Money host Chris Hill previews the new year with senior analysts Aaron Bush and Matt Argersinger, he poses for them a core question: What sectors and spaces do they predict will really heat up in 2019? For Bush, it’s the software-as-a-service space -- and he has a three-stock basket to recommend. Argersinger, meanwhile, offers the perhaps counterintuitive view that with interest rates and inflation rising, real estate -- and homebuilders in particular -- are poised to deliver a rebound over the next few years. On the other hand, they suggest staying away from cannabis stocks and Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), even after their recent declines. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

Motley Fool's Tom Gardner on investing in culture

Tom Gardner, CEO and co-founder of Motley Fool, discussed how culture is the determinant of a company’s value – especially the way a company values its people. Motley Fool looks closely at the corporate cultures of the companies in which it invests, and Gardner said that this has been key to the Fool’s market-beating success. At his own company, he thinks about ways to increase social and collaborative interactions. He told the story of how one year he told his employees that in order to receive their annual bonuses everyone had to be able to name all other 250 employees within the company. Suddenly people were having more lunches with their colleagues, he joked.

What a difference a few years makes. Marijuana has gone from being a strictly illegal commodity virtually everywhere to one which is for all practical purposes legal in many U.S. states -- albeit with restrictions and regulations -- and totally legal as of last month in Canada. As a result, a number of public companies have sprung up to grow and wholesale the crop. But this early in newly open market, it’s still quite hazy how profitable those businesses might be, and speculation about that has led, inevitably, to seriously speculative stock price movements.

Why Motley Fool Stock Advisor Beats the Market
 
05:45
Journey in your mind back to March 2002. The stock market was still stumbling around in the aftermath of the dot-com crash, and retail investors were running scared. It was into that environment that Tom and David Gardner launched a monthly newsletter featuring one stock pick from each brother, with detailed explanations about why they'd been chosen -- a friendly fraternal competition that became the foundation of the Stock Advisor portfolio. The returns on those investments have well outpaced the broader market gains in the ensuing 16 years. Had you acted on all of their recommendations, you'd have reaped a market-mashing 1,955% return overall. Profit, however, isn't the only thing the Gardners have accrued in the intervening years. They've also figured a few things out along the way. So, in this Rule Breaker Investing podcast, David Gardner shares, not stock picks, but interesting conclusions -- six of them -- from his 200 months selecting recommendations for Stock Advisor. In this segment, the conclusion is absolutely fundamental. So much so, that if it weren’t true, the Gardners would probably have hung it up on this game ages ago: Self-directed investing though Stock Advisor should beat, maybe crush, the gains you’d make investing in mutual funds. But don’t just take his word for it. Let him walk you gently through the math. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

What Investors Should Expect in 2019 - 5 Predictions
 
20:50
Wall Street and the business media are filled with experts who will with only the slightest encouragement predict the future with enormous confidence. And their self-assuredness is entirely undented by the fact that darn few of them are right even half the time. But in order to be an investor, you have no choice but to attempt prognostications -- many of them. So for this episode of Motley Fool Answers, hosts Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp discuss the sorts of pundits and predictions you’re best off ignoring, and why, then offer up a handful of forecasts that are less than risky, but that would nonetheless be valuable for retail investors. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

Jack Bogle on Index Funds, Vanguard, and Investing Advice
 
51:14
Jack Bogle transformed the investment management industry. Over a career lasting nearly half a century, Bogle was a crusader for individual investors, working to bring the interests of asset managers in line with those of their investment clients. In 1975, Bogle founded the Vanguard Group, structuring the business as a mutual company, meaning that Vanguard is owned by the funds it manages and, as a result, the funds' investors. A year later, Bogle and Vanguard introduced the first ever index mutual fund available to the general public, aiming to track the performance of the broader market while charging the lowest fees possible. At first, many in the investment industry snickered at Vanguard's new index funds, but over time Bogle's idea took hold. While maintaining some of the lowest fees in the business, Vanguard has grown its assets under management from $1.8 billion at its founding to $5.3 trillion as of September 30, 2018, making Vanguard the second largest asset manager in the world. Despite Vanguard's incredible success, Bogle didn't become fantastically rich. Instead, Jack passed on as much savings as possible to Vanguard investors, bringing fees for his funds to razor-thin levels (and dragging the rest of the fund market with him). As a result, Bogle helped all investors get better returns on their retirement savings, drastically reducing underperformance caused by high management fees. As Bogle said in 2012, "My ideas are very simple. In investing, you get what you don't pay for." All investors are indebted to Jack Bogle for his efforts over 40+ years to make the investment industry better serve the interests of individuals. As we remember Bogle's life and his contributions, we hope you'll enjoy this conversation between Bogle and Motley Fool Motley Fool CEO Tom Gardner recorded in 2016. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

How Do I Start Investing? How Do I Buy a Stock? | Ask A Fool
 
02:41
In this edition of "Ask a Fool," analyst Austin Smith answers the question "Where do I start? How do I choose and purchase a stock?" He defers to the proven Peter Lynch model of buying what you know, which means investing in companies that you personally understand and that have relatively transparent business models. For beginning investors, some popular stocks with easy-to-comprehend business drivers include McDonald's (NYSE: MCD), Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX), and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO). Once you've identified a stock you're committed to, the next step is to open a brokerage account. Austin provides some popular companies as examples. You'll need your stock's ticker symbol, which can be found easily with a Google search, or by typing the company name into the search box at http://www.fool.com. Decide on the number of shares you'd like to buy, and then simply call your broker or use their online interface to place a trade.

No, it can be easy -- in the sense of not demanding you spend an enormous amount of time watching Wall Street for just the right time to buy or sell. But there are hard parts too. Among them, buying regularly, even when all your emotions are telling you to hide your money under the mattress. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

In this segment, best-selling author LouAnn Lofton discusses the formative years that gave her a passion for investing, and shines some light on a number of research studies highlighting the differences between how men invest and how women invest. Because women consistently take less risk, trade less frequently, and invest with a longer time horizon than men do, women investors often outperform their male counterparts, who are more prone to temperamental investing mistakes. It was these studies that led her to write her best-selling book, "Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: and Why You Should, Too."

When Should I Start Investing?
 
05:06
Hey! I’m Motley Fool contributor Dan Kline and on this episode of FAQ we’re talking about when you should start investing and how starting as soon as you can will help with all your long-term financial goals. In most cases, we tell beginners that the best time to start investing is NOW, but there is one big caveat. You should pay off any high-interest debt before investing. What counts as high interest? Anything over the 9-10% annualized return you can expect over the long-term from investing. Those returns, of course, aren’t guaranteed, but that’s historically what has happened when you factor in stock prices rising and dividends. So, before you start investing pay off your credit cards, personal loans, and payday loans if they’re over that threshold. After that, it’s time to figure out how much you can invest. To decide how you should invest you need to do one major thing first and that’s make a budget. Examine how much money you have coming in and how much you have going out. Break down your mandatory expenses like rent or mortgage, car payments, food, utilities, and any other pay-every-month bills and then look at your discretionary spending -- things like entertainment and eating out. Ideally, you will have a surplus and that’s money you can invest. Of course, that does not mean you should only invest that money. You may want to tweak your budget and make spending cuts in order to be able to put more into your investments. You may also consider taking on a second gig or a side hustle to further your long-term financial goals. Once all of that’s settled, it’s time to start investing and that can be scary. The stock market isn’t something most people think about on a day-to-day basis and much of the news about it focuses on the extremes. It’s important to remember what stocks are. They’re shares of individual companies. You may not be able to read a balance sheet and you probably don’t read quarterly reports but you do have brands and companies that mean something to you. Start there. We’re not going to fully go into how to start investing -- that’s a broader topic for a different episode -- but when the time comes remember the old adage that you should buy what you know. I, for example, own shares in Apple and Microsoft -- two companies that are part of my everyday life that make products I love. New investors should also be aware of index funds. An index fund is collection of stocks designed to match a market index -- like the S&P 500. This lets you invest your money broadly with performance not dependent upon one company but the market as a whole. This is a great way to get started without having to become a stock market expert. However you start, the most important thing is that you do start and that’s because of the magic of compounding. Okay, it’s not really magic but compounding can work wonders if you start early. What is compounding? It’s the concept by which your money grows over time because you’re not just experiencing growth on your original investment but on any gains it has made. Imagine if you buy shares in a company that sells robot-produced pizza and coffee, well call it Robo Joe & Pizza. If that company grows by the market’s historical average of around 10%, a year one investment will be worth $1,100 at the end of the year. A year later, assuming the same 10% growth, your investment will be worth $1,210. It starts slow but after 10 years you’ll have $2,594 and in 15 you’ll be at $4,177. Of course, the stock market isn’t that predictable. Your portfolio won’t increase by 10% exactly each year but over time, but this is generally how compounding works. Invest early and your money will go to work for you. Over time, relatively small gains can produce a big balance in your retirement account. Using a simple compounding interest formula that assumes a 10% gain, $1,000 invested at 20 would be worth $72,890.48 at 65. Shorten that time table from 45 years to 20 and it’s only worth $6,727.50. That’s why investing isn’t something you should put off. It’s a lot easier to meet your retirement goals if you start early. You don’t have to be a genius or even pick individual stocks. You can buy index funds -- and like one of those rotisserie cookers -- set it and forget it. Of course, while a chicken might take a few hours to cook and your portfolio will need decades, but it’s still the same principle. Start early and you won’t have to work as hard later. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool
