Reason 5: Get Started Easily

Get Started Easily

Investing doesn’t have to be super time-consuming or complicated. Neither do you need a lot of money or knowledge to get started.

There are so many different stocks and companies you can invest in. Let’s compare this to investing in real estate to illustrate this better. To start investing in real estate, you’ll most likely need tens of thousands of dollars at the very least. With stock investing, you can start with a much less intimidating $500, or even less than that.

The legendary mutual fund manager Peter Lynch recommends that you “Use your specialized knowledge to hone in on stocks you can analyze, study them and then decide if they’re worth owning. The best way to invest is to look at companies competing in the field where you work. Someone with deep restaurant-industry experience would have predicted the success of Panera Bread Co. and Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.”.

“Twenty years in this business convinces me that any normal person using the customary three percent of the brain can pick stocks just as well, if not better, than the average Wall Street expert.” — Peter Lynch
