  1. 1. The Stock Market, a Big Green Money Making Machine
  2. 2. What is the Stock Market?  A stock market is a place where shares of stocks are sold and bought  The main stock markets are NYSE (New York Stock Exchange), AMEX (American Stock Exchange), and NASDAQ (National Association of Security Dealers Automated Quotations)  You can’t actually go to the stock market; you have to contact a stockbroker  A stockbroker is someone who buys or sells stocks for you for a fee (commission). Internet based brokers charge a small commission, so anyone can afford to invest!
  3. 3. Why Invest In the Stock Market?  The stock market is a great way - maybe even the best way - to grow your money  Most companies increase their value of the stock at higher rate than the bank interest rate  Some companies pay a dividend, which is like interest  Even though the stock market is riskier, if you invest correctly, it gets you much more money than keeping you money in the bank  Higher risk means higher reward  The average stock value grows faster than does the bank’s interest

What is stock?  Stock is a part of the company that people can buy to own  The stock is divided into “shares” that you can buy  The money from a company’s stock funds their operations  After paying expenses, the money left over is their profit  Some companies will share their profit with their stock holders  As the company’s profit grows, the value of the stock grows Value of a share If you invested $100 in each company 2004 2014 2004 2014 Apple (AAPL) $28.06 $592.00 $100.00 $2109.76 Nike (NKE) $17.79 $72.99 $100.00 $410.29 Google (GOOG) $54.10 $527.93 $100.00 $975.84 The Gap (GPS) $24.15 $39.28 $100.00 $162.65 Disney (DIS) $23.47 $80.31 $100.00 $342.18 $500.00 $4000.72

How to build your stock portfolio  A portfolio is the collection of stocks that you own  To build your portfolio, the best way is to:  Identify good companies  Buy at a low price  Hold on to your stocks for a long time  Buy lots of stocks  It is safer to invest $100 in 10 companies than it is to invest in $1,000 in 1 company  Don’t panic if your stock drops! The best thing to do is to hold.  Sometimes, it is a good idea to even buy more shares! Warren Buffett once said, “Be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful!”
