Get Success in Share Trading : Become a Successful Investor

To be a successful investor by trading in shares there are definite steps to take. Following texts can help you to succeed in stock markets..

Look for company financial data

Before investing in company shares on the stock market, you should be aware that all publicly traded companies must provide access to investors with company financial data. The data is generally available from the company so if you are considering buying shares from a company, then get access to this financial information and make happy yourself that the company is in a good financial state before owning the shares of the company with your money.

Key aspects to Look in a Company’s Financial information

While researching the details of a company, then take a look at its financial position of atleast two to three years into the past. There is no need to go back further than this but if you go back less, there may be significant trends in the finances that you will fail to spot. Take exceptional note of the quarterly statements and the revenue and earnings per share of the company.

Figures tell the Story of a Company

Try to identify trends in the figures. While there is no guarantee of what might happen In the future of the figures, it is unquestionable that an upward trend in revenue and profits will be a positive sign to look out for. In simple words, a company having steady growth for past 2 to 3 years should have a positive growth in the future, until or unless some major changes occur.

After you are satisfied with the financials of the company and that the projection of making good profits into the future are favourable you will be in a situation to consider putting money into the share.

What Kind of Shares will give more returns? (Growth or Dividend)

It is an continuing debate over whether it’s preferable to buy shares that will grow in value, or shares that pay good dividends. The answer to this question should always lie with the individual investor. It is always suggested to avoid chasing dividends. We refer to the practice of certain investors of buying a share just before a dividend is expected to be announced. Please note that the price of the share will already have taken the dividend into account so you will be paying for it in any case.
