How to Pick a Stock: Basic Best Practices for New Investors

| September 11, 2021, 06:00 PM

New investors are wondering how to buy shares in companies to stay in the black. There are two safest ways to buy stocks today. Thus, you can buy 505 stocks from the S&P 500 or buy ETF stocks on the S&P 500 index.

In this review, you will learn in detail how much 505 S&P 500 stocks are worth, what ETF stocks exist, and how safe it is to invest in this niche. You can also find other valuable information about promotions at, a reliable, reputable news portal.

What Is ETF?

ETF is an Exchange Traded Fund. Within the ETF, the manager collects shares of various companies and makes a fund on their basis. Anyone can purchase shares of this fund and become the owner of all the targeted shares.

And here is where a logical question arises. Why invest in an unknown fund if you can just buy the shares that you are familiar with? In fact, not everything is so simple. Google shares are worth more than $2,300, and Amazon has more than $3,200. To build a portfolio of at least one share of the largest technology companies in the United States, you need to have more than ten thousand dollars on hand. Not everyone has that kind of money.

One of the main advantages of ETFs is affordability. Thus, ETF stocks usually cost anywhere from ten or twenty to several hundred dollars. This means that almost everyone can buy them, without a need to invest a lot of capital. Accessibility also allows you to invest in ETFs from different areas at the same time. For $2,300, which is worth a share of Google alone, you can take shares of two dozen ETFs, forming a portfolio from different industries – diversifying your portfolio.

ETF Benefits

Here are some of the benefits that every investor will definitely love:

  1. This is a convenient tool for those who want to invest funds but do not have time to build a portfolio at all.
  2. An opportunity to invest in an entire industry without really understanding it. This is especially important for new destinations, such as cannabis-oriented companies in the United States, where there is active legalization.
  3. On average, the profitability is just over 10%.
