How to Invest in Stocks for Beginners - How to Start Out!

The U.S. stock market has proven to be one of the best ways for the average person to build long-term, lasting wealth. Over the last 10 years alone, the S&P 500 is up over 250% on a total return basis. In the modern era, the U.S. stock market has thoroughly beat the returns earned in the housing market and it has CRUSHED simply holding cash. Unfortunately, a recent Gallup poll indicates barely over half of Americans have any money invested in stocks. At the Motley Fool, our goal is to make the world smarter, happier, and richer, and we can't think of a better way to do that than to help would-be investors get started. That's why we're going live on our YouTube channel! Our team is going to walk investors through the checklist of items they need to do before they start investing in the stock market, what to do when they buy their first stock and, they'll even give viewers two great starter stocks for their watch list. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool
