How Do I Start Investing? How Do I Buy a Stock? | Ask A Fool
 
02:41
In this edition of "Ask a Fool," analyst Austin Smith answers the question "Where do I start? How do I choose and purchase a stock?" He defers to the proven Peter Lynch model of buying what you know, which means investing in companies that you personally understand and that have relatively transparent business models. For beginning investors, some popular stocks with easy-to-comprehend business drivers include McDonald's (NYSE: MCD), Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX), and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO). Once you've identified a stock you're committed to, the next step is to open a brokerage account. Austin provides some popular companies as examples. You'll need your stock's ticker symbol, which can be found easily with a Google search, or by typing the company name into the search box at http://www.fool.com. Decide on the number of shares you'd like to buy, and then simply call your broker or use their online interface to place a trade.

What's the Difference Between a Growth Stock and a Value Stock?
 
02:48
The Motley Fool's Austin Smith answers the question: "What is the difference between a growth stock and a value stock?" Austin identifies value stocks as those which are mis-priced, or trading to a discount to their intrinsic value. Value investors are buying companies with the expectation that shares will rise to reflect the real value of the company. Meanwhile growth stocks are those which investors are buying with the expectation of large earnings in the future. There are a few tell-tale signs covered in the video to help you identify whether you're looking at one type of stock or another. Austin reminds investors that growth and value strategies aren't mutually exclusive, and thinks Warren Buffet said it best when he quipped that "growth and value investing are joined at the hip".

Social Security Benefits: Is Waiting Just Plain Wrong?
 
03:12
Social Security gives you the choice of whether to take smaller benefits as early as age 62 or wait for larger benefits until as late as age 70. Even though countless analysts have shown that many people get more money in the long run by waiting longer before taking Social Security benefits, millions remain unconvinced and take them as early as they can. In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, looks at the arguments for and against waiting to take Social Security benefits. Dan notes that even though you get a reduced benefit by taking Social Security early, you get the money at a time when it might have more value to you in terms of enriching your life. Moreover, with break-even dates in your late 70s or early 80s, many people simply don't believe the actuarial figures that suggest they could live a lot longer than they expect. Dan looks at data showing that 40% of retiree-age Social Security recipients are 75 or older, with one in eight 85 or older, and notes that the data doesn't include the impact that delaying Social Security can have on younger spouses and survivors. Dan concludes that you must take health issues and other personal information into account to make the best decision, with no hard-and-fast rule applying to every single individual.

Many people are excited about our Foolish recommendations, but are still held back by one big hurdle -- knowing how to purchase shares of their favorite companies. Once you get started it's actually quite easy. Because we Motley Fools are advocates of the "do it yourself" investing strategy, Austin suggests opening an account with a discount brokerage firm. These companies charge anywhere from $7-$10 to buy and sell your positions. As a Foolish rule of thumb, don't forget to keep your trading fees below 2% on average. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

What's a Point? How the Dow Keeps Score
 
03:44
The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Investing Basics" series, in which Motley Fool contributor and financial planner Dan Caplinger discusses topics from around the investment world. Today, Dan looks at the Dow Jones Industrial Average to answer a very basic question: what do points in the Dow mean? Unlike stocks, where a "point" is a dollar, the value of Dow points isn't nearly as clear. As Dan describes, stock splits and component replacements over time require changes to what's known as the "Dow divisor" in order to keep the Dow consistent over time. Despite its flaws, the Dow's point system is an easy way for the public at large to track the stock market, and Dan thinks it's worth holding onto.

When is Dividend Reinvestment a Bad Idea? - Ask a Fool
 
03:20
Dividend stocks have gotten more popular than ever as a source of income, but what if you don't need the cash that dividends provide? Reinvesting dividends often makes a huge difference to your long-term performance, but there are cases when it's the wrong move. In this installment of our Ask a Fool series, Fool contributor Dan Caplinger answers a reader's question about when you shouldn't reinvest dividends. Dan notes that reinvesting dividends can work out badly if a stock stumbles, and so you should closely evaluate each dividend-payer in your portfolio to see whether dividend reinvestment is appropriate. He also gives some guidelines for other situations when you should think twice about reinvesting your payouts.

Fool.com - In the video above, I answer a question that came from Melissa on Facebook: "What is the minimum number of shares I can buy?" My take? The number of shares isn't what matters; it's about the amount allocated. When investing in small increments, though, there are a few things to keep in mind, including discount brokerage minimums, trading commissions, or low- or no-fee plans like a Direct Stock Purchase Program.

This Little-Known Social Security Trap Could Leave You With No Benefits
 
02:01
Social Security is a key part of your financial security in retirement, but many people don't realize that they're not even eligible to receive Social Security benefits. One little-known rule often gets ignored until it's too late for unsuspecting retirees. In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, talks about this trap for the unwary. Dan notes that in order to qualify for retirement benefits, you have to have earned 40 Social Security credits over the course of your lifetime. Dan points out that it's not hard to earn the credits, with earnings of just $1,200 producing one credit in 2014. But because you can only earn a maximum of four credits a year, the requirement essentially leaves those without 10 years of work history unable to claim benefits based on their own work history. As a result, those who start their careers late need to be mindful of the rule in order to avoid mistakenly believing that they've already earned Social Security benefits.

Investing made simple: The Motley Fool's essential guide to investing is now available to the public, free of cost, at http://bit.ly/1atRpHZ. This resource was designed to cover everything that new investors need to know to get started today. For your free copy, just click the link above. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Brendan Mathews take a question from a reader who asks, "I am a relatively novice investor trying to move away from managed mutual funds into more index funds/ETFs. I'm hesitating to buy index funds right now though, because the market seems to be at a peak. Does this matter when buying index funds? Will there be benefits (like dividend payments) that make it worthwhile no matter what level the market is at? Or should I wait a while and hope for cheaper prices of ETFs?" Jason and Brendan both think investing with ETFs and/or index funds are great ways to cut the costs that many actively managed funds can bear. Buying shares in something that mirrors the S&P 500 for example can give an investor plenty of diversity while offering them all the opportunity to partake in the market's overall gains. Because Fools tend to look at investing over the course of many years though, instead of trying to time the market and invest when prices are lower investors are better served by investing on a consistent basis. Buying in both the good and the bad times will help smooth out returns over the long haul while eliminating the need to try to figure out where the market is going to go in the short run.

Dividend Investing: 3 Things You Probably Didn't Know

Investing made simple: The Motley Fool's essential guide to investing is now available to the public, free of cost, at http://bit.ly/1atRpHZ. This resource is truly all you need to get started today. To claim your free copy, simply click the link above -- no credit card required! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dividend investing has become one of the most popular investment strategies for millions of investors, as it gives you the potential both to get substantial income from your portfolio and to reap the long-term growth that stocks offer. But many investors still don't have all the facts about dividend investing. In this video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, discusses three things that many people don't know about dividend investing. Dan opens by noting that it's important to understand that dividends don't always track a stock's earnings potential. For instance, real estate investment trust Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY) and master limited partnership Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE: KMP) are both required to distribute nearly all of their income as dividend distributions in order to keep their favorable tax status. By contrast, ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) and Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (NYSE: FCX) also pay relatively healthy dividends, but they pay only a small fraction of their overall earnings to investors. The second thing Dan discusses is that in many cases, looking for dividend growth rather than high current yields can pay off in the long run. High-yield stocks often end up cutting their dividends, causing loss of income and often a subsequent share-price drop. Finally, Dan concludes by discussing the behavior of stocks that declare special distributions and why you should think twice about buying a stock that has just announced a special dividend.

How to Invest: 5 Effective Investing Principles
 
07:46
One of the most common questions we get is: “How do I get started investing?” It’s understandable – the stock market is confusing (and volatile!), and the financial media makes it seem like you need a doctorate in economics to even consider investing in stocks. But the truth is, getting started investing – and investing well -- can be easy. Surprisingly easy. What you need is a simple framework – a step-by-step guide on how to invest. So, we made one. It’s packed with information – how much you need to have to invest (it’s probably less than you think), how to build the right mindset for investing, and how to find great investments. We even give you a great fund to start your investing journey. Now, maybe you want to know about how to invest in individual stocks. We don’t cover that in this video. We cover that here: Our goal is to help you get started on a long investing journey. That’s why principle #2 in the video above is: “Play the long game.” The available data shows that long-term investors dramatically outperform short-term investors in the stock market.

Howard Marks: Mastering the Market Cycle
 
45:17
Howard Marks' Oaktree Capital (NYSE: OAK) earned billions by investing heavily at the depths of the financial crisis. It may not surprise you to learn that Marks and his team made out huge by investing at a time when everyone else in the market was terrified. It might surprise you much more to know that these are no robots. They were actually quite terrified, too. Marks' memos, which he has written since 1990, have long been priority reading for some of the best investors in the world -- Warren Buffett has famously said that whenever he sees one in his inbox, that's what he reads first. In 2011 Marks released his first book, The Most Important Thing, which, in direct contradiction with the title, listed 20 things to which the successful investor ought to pay attention. His second book, out this month, is titled Mastering the Market Cycle: Getting the Odds on Your Side. In this wide-ranging interview with Bill Mann, Marks discussed the words that ought to be banned from an investor's vocabulary, whether who sits in the president's chair matters to investors, how his team prepared and steeled themselves during the financial collapse, and where we currently sit in the market cycle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

What is a Stock Split? And Why Do Companies Split Their Shares?
 
04:32
What does it mean when a company decides to do a stock split? For the company and existing shareholders, it actually doesn't change that much. Stock splits change the number of ways ownership is sliced, but they don't change the value of a company or the value an individual holds. That's because when a company announces a stock split, they give existing shareholders stock as a dividend to make them whole for the increase in share count. If it doesn't change anything in terms of value, why do companies split their stock? - Stock splits reduce the price per share, making it easier for new investors to become a shareholder of the company. This is partially why Apple split its stock 7-for-1 in 2014. - Splits also increase the number of shares outstanding, which can help with liquidity. - Some special securities like options are sold in blocks of 100 shares, so if a company’s stock price is very high, it requires a lot of money upfront to create these transactions. Really, stock splits are simply cosmetic changes to how ownership of a company is held, which is why fewer companies are doing them. It's best to think of a stock split like your share of a pizza pie -- you can have one slice of a pizza that's been cut four ways, or two slices of the same pizza that's been cut eight ways. Either way, you're getting the same amount of pizza. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

3 Social Security Secrets You Probably Don't Know
 
02:25
Social Security is an essential part of most people's financial planning for retirement. But many people don't know everything they should about the Social Security program. In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, looks at three Social Security secrets that few people know. Dan points out that only 70% of the program's 57 million beneficiaries are retired workers, with disabled workers, survivors, and dependents making up the remainder. He also notes that some state and local government workers don't participate in Social Security, instead having their own separate pension plans. Dan concludes with a reminder that divorced spouses can claim benefits under an ex-spouse's work history under certain circumstances, as long as they were married 10 years or more and meet other requirements.

Elon Musk on the Historical Precedent Influencing Tesla's Skeptics
 
02:59
Tesla reported upbeat earnings Wednesday, and the stock responded by finishing up 8% on the week. That undoubtedly hurt the stock's many short sellers -- according to S&P Capital IQ, there are 23.59 million shares sold short, for a short interest of nearly 23%. On a recent visit to Fool HQ in Alexandria, Va., Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk explained why he thought so many people may be skeptical of his "hard-core technology and design company" -- and why recent actions from Toyota and Daimler may sway the skeptics. Here's an excerpt from Musk's chat at the Fool

Why Do I Want a Roth IRA?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Investing Basics" series, in which Motley Fool contributor and financial planner Dan Caplinger discusses topics from around the investment world. Today, Dan looks at Roth IRAs and why having one is a smart move.

Assuming it passes muster -- and there’s no reason to expect it won’t -- IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) announced purchase of Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) for $33 billion will make it the third-largest M&A deal in the U.S. tech space ever.
