  • Supply and Demand in the market for specific stock
  • Earnings and Expectations of stockholders
  • Sentiments and Attitudes of people in the market
  • Economic Indicators of the country
  • Mentality of the overall mass (investors)
  • Deciding what amount of risk you can take while remaining comfortable with your investments is very important
  • The risk/return tradeoff is the balance between the desire for the lowest possible risk and the highest possible return
  • The risk/return tradeoff could easily be called the "ability-to-sleep-at-night test” “While some people can handle the equivalent of financial skydiving without batting an eye, others are terrified to climb the financial ladder without a secure harness”. 
  •  Shares provide great diversification to ones earnings (investments), apart from job/salary, business, land/house, gold/silver, etc.
  • Shares are highly liquid, so one can sell them instantly when in need to cash 
  • The return on investments (on average) in the market are significantly higher than inflation, savings and treasury bonds despite regular ups and downs in the market
  • Through thorough analysis and carefully crafted investment strategy, one can attain superior returns while minimizing risk in stock market investments 

 

 

  • Set Investment Goals:
    Before making any investment decisions, the first step to a successful investing is figuring out one’s investment goals. It’s like creating a road map like, whether the investor is buying a house, buying a car, saving for retirement purpose or for kid’s college fund from the investment.  The investor should understand his/her/its investment objectives (capital preservation, regular cash flow requirement, wealth maximization, etc.) and investment horizon. Based on the investment objectives and investment horizon, investor should formulate strategies (short-term, long-term, loss/profit booking, IPO/FPO/auctions, analysis modality, etc.)
  • Assess Risk Appetite:
    All investments involve some degree of risk. Investor’s goals decide his/her/its risk taking ability. As a general rule, higher the risk of an investment, the more potential for higher return as well as for higher losses. However, not everyone can take risks with their money over a certain level. Not everyone can handle the ups and downs of the stock market. Some investors may be so averse to risking their money that a potential higher rate of return may not be worth the stress while some investors can accept losing money for the possibility of getting much more profit on their investment, they can choose aggressive investments such as growth stocks.  
  • Diversification:
    As the saying goes, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. Diversification means spreading investment fund across different categories of stocks. Different categories could include different industries, different size of companies, different geographies the companies operate in, different business models, etc. Proper Diversification helps minimize unsystematic risks.
  • Consult a Portfolio Manager:
    If an investor doesn’t have sufficient time or expertise for all the above mentioned activities, or doesn’t want to spend own time for investment management, or doesn’t want all the mental pressure from handling one’s own fund, the investor can handover the investment fund to portfolio manager, who will professionally manage the fund.
