How to focus more on the growth of stock investing?


 If you're somebody that's just  starting out with stock investing, maybe you don't feel like you know a lot or you you seriously know you've got newbie written on your face.  

As you start to learn these things you're in the right place.  I'm going to take you by the hand going to lead you down the path and every single week. We're going to add to your knowledge base so that by the end of seven weeks. You'll feel quite a bit more comfortable in the stock market as a whole but more especially about doing some trend trading with stocks. 

I'll get into that a little bit more just here in a moment. Now it looks like we've got lots of friendlies. Here I've got to get back up here to the top. We've got dickens and Anthony Yoko  Christine. I hope that right get you guys are coming in from all over the place.  

I'm happy to see that you're here. Let's go get started with our disclosures and I'll lay out our agenda. We'll get started with things today and past performance of any security or strategy does not guarantee future results for success. 


We're going to be focusing on growth stocks in this course growth stocks tend to be more volatile than the broader market and generally don't pay dividends to shareholders. The risk of loss in trading markets can be substantial stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly. In response to adverse issuer political regulatory market or economic or pandemic developments. 

Now, I just threw that last one in there for fun been a coach. Here, since 2004, I enjoy sharing with you things that helped me along the way and as coaches in general. I think we enjoy doing that so that hopefully it makes your path and your progression a little bit easier looks like we have  Cameron may helping out in the chat.

 I really appreciate some of you are familiar with Cameron and so he'll try to pick up any questions that I overlook or neglect or can't catch. He'll help us out this way now this is a series and today is the very first week of that series which is nice for those of you that are starting out. It is because we're starting here with lesson one about finding growth stocks. 

We're going to talk about  what some of those characteristics of growth stocks are and why we're  interested in them but then you can see what the lineup is going to be over. The  next few weeks and that's the order we're going to follow it. 


Today we're going to discuss how investors use stocks and then we're going to be putting a special emphasis on girl stocks. We're going to talk about the characteristics that growth stocks have and I'm going to teach you a scan in the platform that will help you find those types of stocks. Now I will periodically be glancing over into the  chat area, so if you have a question go-ahead feel free to put that question in there. 

I would like to tell you some of the characteristics that are a little bit different about them. Now growth stocks are stocks that typically are upward trending. They might be escalating in price pretty quickly and how many of you would have loved to have been in on the IPO of google when it debuted in august of  2004 at about 54 bucks. 

How many of you  would have said that we like that we would have liked that or Starbucks at  750 in 2003. Now it could look in the rearview mirror in the past and we can say that would have been great. People that are looking for girl stocks are kind of looking for that next big stock or several stocks that have that kind of appreciation and growth and spread and touching many areas of the market. 

Now, a value stock the emphasis is on price and I'm going  to say a low pric.e This is very common  what we just experienced lately, we know the market pulled back pretty significantly in February and bottomed out in March. We had a 35  pullback on the SP and so there was a lot of people that we're thinking that there are some bargains out there. 

We are going to go looking for them and so that's what we would call a value stock and then we have an income stock. Sometimes people will designate part of their portfolio or sometimes when they're in retirement all of their portfolios to stocks that are paying a dividend. We call that income stocks typically they're stable companies. They aren't in growth mode anymore. They're more mature stocks and they're rewarding their shareholders with that dividend instead of rewarding them with growth. 

Now let's talk about some characteristics of a growth stock so that you can have an idea well what do these look like. There are so many times although not always they are smaller and mid-cap companies. A capsized is basically how big is the organization are the shares worth when you take you to know the value of the stock and multiply it by the number of shares outstanding. The big does it make well how big of a number is that and you're probably familiar with some of the big really big companies right now. 


We're going to identify  apple, we're going to identify Microsoft. Some of those types of companies and you'd look at those and you'd go well and those aren't smaller mid-cap. They're actually large-cap and so that's why I say where they're not going to exclusively be small and mid-caps companies. Many times they have higher earnings growth potential and that's because the forecast is out here in the future and people are looking to what they expect out of the company and are willing to pay that price with that expectation in mind.
