Investing 101: Taking the Mystery Out of Investing

We receive many questions from people who want to start investing. What is an on-line investment newsletter? Why is it so important that the person giving me investment advice be independent? How much money is needed to start investing? Do I need a stock broker? What is a mutual fund? What is a discount broker? As we answer these questions, remember that investing is as simple or complicated as you choose to make it. We choose to keep it simple.

Pick a subject area in which to start exploring:


Best Investment Vehicles

Why stocks and mutual funds are better than bonds, certificates of deposit, and all other types of investment vehicles.

The risk level of investing in individual stocks and stock mutual funds.


Where To Get Investment Advice

Advantages of investment newsletters over stock brokers.

On-line investment newsletters versus printed newsletters.


Mutual Funds

What are mutual funds? What are no-load mutual funds?

No-load funds versus loaded funds: which should you use?

How important is it to choose mutual funds with low expense ratios? Very important, as you'll see in this article.


Stocks

Are stocks better or worse than mutual funds?


Getting Started

How much money is needed to start investing? How to minimize the commissions you pay.

After viewing our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), if you still have questions, please contact us.

BeatTheStockMarket.com is an on-line investment newsletter specializing in stock and mutual fund recommendations.

From 1998 toOctober 11, 2018our Primary Stock Portfolio has averaged 31.9%  per year. We use a proprietary investment selection method that has been under development since 1993. Our performance is based on simply buying and holding stocks for 1-3 years. Our model portfolio has never recommended risky futures, commodities or options (although at times we have recommended some options outside of our model portfolio).

We believe in investing, not gambling. And we also don't utilize market timing or day trading. We simply focus on stock and fund selection and let our profits ride.

Why don't we recommend day trading? Because to profit from day trading, your investment needs to make enough profit in a very short time to overcome the cost of incurring frequent commissions, the higher taxation of short-term trading, the cost of proprietary information systems that day traders are led to believe that they need, and the excessive time that day trading requires.

Our method of investing is not time-consuming for our subscribers. Merely monitor your email for our buy/sell recommendations which occur roughly once every two weeks for our Primary Stock Portfolio (subscribers also receive buy/sell signals for our alternative model portfolios). We will tell you via email and on our web site exactly what to buy and when to buy it. And even more importantly, what to sell and when to sell it. In addition, subscribers receive weekly emails to keep them up-to-date on our recommended portfolios.

Furthermore, when we notify subscribers of buy/sell recommendations, subscribers are notified by email in real-time. That's just one of the many advantages that on-line investment publications have over printed publications. Subscribers don't have to wait for us to send our data to the printer so it can be printed and then mailed via the oftentimes slow U.S. Postal Service. Waiting for the next regularly-scheduled publication would be a disservice to our subscribers since timing is immensely important in the securities markets.
