As the economy continues to grow and individuals remain hungry in their pursuit of new streams of revenue, investing in stocks seems more and more attractive as time goes by. The stock market’s generous return over time is only complemented by the risk-and-reward thrill which comes with any investment.
Higher return on investment
While no investment is without its drawbacks, the stock market offers the potential to earn higher returns as opposed to other investment alternatives. Most investors tend to purchase low and sell high to capitalize on companies’ appreciation in value while others prefer a regular cash flow from companies that grow at a moderate rate and pay dividends.
Whichever way you prefer investing, the potential income from stocks is enticing enough for would-be investors to at least research the market and take a look at what they may be missing out on.
Potential for passive income
The term ‘passive income’ is thrown around a lot nowadays, with investors and entrepreneurs highlighting the importance of having at least one stream of passive income to contribute to financial security. Simply put, passive income is a regular source of earnings obtained through another source over and above your employment income.
Passive income could be anything from rental income to any business activity in which the earner does not materially participate in or in this case; dividend income. Owning dividend-yielding stocks will allow the shareholder to receive payments at regular intervals, meaning that if you invest in the right stocks, you could secure a solid stream of passive income.
The ease of buying and selling
Unlike other type of investments, the stock-market allows quick buying and selling in a matter of a few seconds. Having 24/7 access to the stock market and the ability to constantly monitor your portfolio, with real-time pricing, the MeDirect app allows you to benefit from the swift and abrupt movements of the stock market.
Needless to say, despite being easily accessible, the stock market is also volatile, and returns aren’t necessarily guaranteed so staying on your toes and playing it safe when needed is important for even the most experienced of investors.
The ability to diversify
Due to the liquid nature of stock investment, diversifying one’s portfolio based on their financial goals is one of the largest advantages. A diversified portfolio carries more advantages than disadvantages, allowing the investor to lower their investment risk.
Diversifying means that one spreads the investment capital over several companies across the globe which vary in size and market share. So whether you’re feeling bold and want to go for the big fish or try your luck with a more stable and safe investment, you can via the MeDirect App!
