Today i am going to share with you my knowledge on making money on stock market.

Making money on stock market: Method 1

The first method on making money on stock market is to invest in stocks for the long term.  like Warren Buffet. Look for a good company and invest for long term. Every time a company performs well and the results are better than expected then the value of the stock of that company will increase. So you will have to do a good research on that the company and the market that they are active in.

When you do a research you have to look at the potential of what a company can be. After all investors invest because they believe they will make a good profit in the future. So when you invest in a company make sure you know exactly what the potential of the company is and know if the current CEO and his/her management team can make this potential come true. As you all probably know, a company can only grow if they have a good CEO with his/her management team.

How to recognise a good management team?

One of the best way to know if the management team  is good, is to check the company’s quarterly results and see if the management team of that company  have achieved their goal or  did they do better than what wall street analyst had  expected. Most companies have we website with a section investor relations. You can find the quarterly results on the investor relations section. Or just google for it.

Now a example of a company that has a clear potential is Starbucks. Starbucks potential is that they can open thousands of store in the future where consumers can enjoy their Starbucks products. So it is easy to understand that the more stores they open, the more money they can make. And thus the value will go up in the future.

A example of a company that doesn’t have a clear potential is Twitter. For me I don’t see or understand what the potential of twitter is. Like all social media, their revenue is relied on ad revenue. To earn more ad revenue, twitter needs more unique users. At this moment I don’t see how twitter is going to create a large base of unique users compare to Facebook and snapchat.

 

Making money on stock market: Method 2

When you buy a stock, you can buy a dividend stock. A dividend stock gives investors a piece of the company’s profit. In the video How make to make a passive income with dividend, i explain more about this subject.  

Making money on stock market: Method 3

The third method on how to make money stocks is by going short. You probably have heard the term of going short on the market. This one of the few ways of making money when the stock market goes down. Meaning that you can earn a profit when the stock price value goes down.

So how does this work? When you are going short, you are making a deal on contract with a buyer. In this contract you have a deal that the buyer will buy the stocks of you for the current stock price where you have just gone short. So if the price dropped in the future then you are making money. However if the price goes up then you will be losing money. Because when you go short , your broker buys the current stock and hold it for you. So when the stock price goes up , you will have to pay the difference to your broker. This procedure is called margin call.  Each broker have their own margin call policies. In  margin call you have a deal with your broker , that if price goes over % of the stock price value of your short position. Then you have to pay for the difference.

So guys these are the three methods were professional traders, investors make money on the stock market. If you have any questions or remarks, please put it in the comments section. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for reading and good luck with making money on the stock market.

After their IPO on 19th September 2014 the price of Alibaba stock was started at $92,30. And reached the highest price of $120 on the 14th of November 2014. From there the stock price of Alibaba declined to $82,15 today 21th of April when writing this article.

 

What causes the declining?

Well since Alibaba’s highest pike on the 14th of November, the company have been receiving critics from Chinese regulators on their e-commerce activities, forecasts that missed estimates and Alibaba is also currently facing slow growth in sales. And don’t forget the Chinese e-commerce market is growing that fast as many are expecting it.

 

What to do now?

Alibaba is still facing many challenges; they are still testing the waters of the international markets. Jack Ma announce a while back that Alibaba is going to focus a lot more on making money international then only on China. In the long term might succeed in this but in the short term its going to be difficult. Having Amazon as a competitor…

On the other hand Alibaba profits are still rising and sales are still good despite it didn’t met the expectations of many analysts. And Alibaba is making big investments in small tech us companies that could give Alibaba a good return on their investment. One the start up company that Alibaba have invested in is SnapChat.

We at TradeAndInvest101.com are thinking on holding Alibaba stocks with put options. We might go in the swing trade with CFD’s on Alibaba stocks.

Alibaba stock Price Movement 21-04-2015

As you can see from the screenshot. From march till now the Alibaba stock price movement has been and still is in a indecisive trend. You might have notice the double inside bar which indicates that the indecisive trend will continue. On 7th may 2015  Alibaba company will  announce their first quarter results. We think that day is the day that might end the indecisive trend of Alibaba stock price movement. If the results are good and Alibaba stock price close above 85 dollars we might get a uptrend of Alibaba. And if the results are bad and the stock price of Alibaba closes below 80 dollars we might get a downtrend of Alibaba.
