My First Time investing in Shares

466 ratings | 12354 views
In the following video I speak about my first time trying the stock market and what are some of the reasons why i Invested in BRAIT at that time and what the market did to my portfolio. I invested into BRAIT shares on the Standardbank Securities Platform, had no stop losses nothing. I literally put my money in and waited...FAIL. Also I bought high instead of buy low sell high I have learnt and I am going in much stronger now.

That is similar to what happened to Bitcoin. One jumps at the moving train thinking the road is still long all to find the destination is very close by...

Everything she has mentioned is true. You can however educate yourself about JSE trading through Stock Market College(via online course or direct) in South Africa. The college is a great platform to acquire adequate information on everything stock market related plus the benefits of brokers who give you signals.Contact me on 079 3271166 for more info.

it is time for every investor to take serious look at investing in Bitcoin. Bitcoin has performed strongly significant returns over the years rather than shares. To learn more check out more on my channel Hardcore crypto

I would say to all aspired investors, try value invest and do not follow the news or trends of the market, some stocks are under and others are overvalued, in the words of Warren Buffet, be fearful when everybody is greedy and be greedy when everybody is fearful, and another thing is that do not try to get rich quickly if you look at your capitecs and naspers you had to wait 10 years before making real money but how many of us are willing to wait that long?

Investing lesson 101 requires that you do not invest what you are not prepared to lose. If you are a new investor, seek advice, (read up on companies, watch youtube videos on how to build a portfolio, ask for help, there is lost of useful information if you willing to look for it). Secondly a new investor whilst still learning the workings of the stock market would be wise not cherry pick stocks, however buy Exchange traded funds (ETF's) which are basically a basket of shares, so if 1 company is doing bad, the others would hopefully prop up the loser (as you are invested in a diverse range of companies), so that you do not have huge valuation fluctuations as you would have seen with a single stock like Brait. Happy Investing.

Lonmin/sibyane shares looks good
wilmonm (1 month ago)
These Sibanye (JSE: SGL) shares were trading at under ZAR8.50 for nearly 8 months in 2018 then it doubled to just over ZAR18 recently in early 2019, however it has since lost 25% again. Be careful when trading in a mining company that are heavily invested in South Africa due to the mining charter policy uncertainty / labour issues like strikes and so on. Also take note that Sibanye intends buying Lonmin which is saddled with debt, and that they will pay for Lonmin Mining Company by issuing new Sibanye shares, further diluting the current share price. Lastly Sibanye has not paid a dividend in 2yrs since buying Stillwater in the USA (again at huge cost and have not yet fully reaped the benefits of this investment) - so all these variables need to be considered in before you click BUY.

I really want to go into investing, I tried reading on it but never got a solid idea on what to do really... And I'm a student can't afford to pay thousands for these forex teachers
Obakeng Taje (1 month ago)
+Athi Ndwalane I would never advice you to begin with forex, start with stocks by first identifying brands that you know have been around and are going to be around for years, you can also try value investing by you'll need to learn the skill that no one can teach, you need to learn how to read and interpret annual reports, the platform that I use and would advice on is easyequities, you can start investing from as little as R1, you don't pay heavy brokage fees and there's no monthly fee, you can buy the smallest fraction of shares and the best part is when you own the full share the share will be under your name and you will have voting rights. Just search easyequities on YouTube to know more about them. Remember investing is not a get rich quick tool it takes 5 to 15 years for it to pay off but the sooner and younger you start the more you can make, investing is about time and not money. I know I've said a mouthful but hopes it helps
Athi Ndwalane (1 month ago)
+Obakeng Taje but what's the best way to go in as a beginner or any helpful tool/app you might recommend?
Obakeng Taje (1 month ago)
Only a few and very few people actually win in forex and they do not know how they win and a lot of them facilitate workshops without trading so I would be careful if I were you

If you have read anything about Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett or even Charlie Munger you'd know or remember that they always advise that you should have a margin of safety with every investment you make. I'm glad you've shared this experience with us, it will serve as a reminder to never neglect doing the most basic steps when considering to make any investment.
Obakeng Taje (1 month ago)
I would also advise investors to always read analyze annual reports of companies before investing in them
Tshepile Melamu (1 month ago)
Which are? I'm only starting to look into investing now and there's one of her videos where she speaks about the option of getting a broker or registering to do it myself. The only shares I bought were the MTN Zakhele ones and i got a good return. So please enlighten me further

it's not really a bad thing especially if you didn't plan that money for something. this king of things it's hard to predict, look at what happened to Steinhoff. my advice is if u not really that financially stable but wants to start small you can start with ETFs

I am a lazy investor and I really do not have the skill to pick a single stock that will do well. So to cover myself from the huge risk on investing on a single share, I prefer to buy a mix of local and international Exchange Traded Funds

+Khosta you can never go wrong when it comes to that and they can also make you a millionaire thanks to the law of compound interest but not overnight though not overnight, you just have to be patient

No dear. its just a platform. As Nozi said the brokers are listed on JSE
Nozi Khumalo (1 month ago)
No. There are lots of stock brokers. They are all listed on the JSE. My favorite is an online broker called EasyEquities its quick and easy to sign up with them.

+wilmonm ohh yeah I even forgot about that Rain mobile😂. Thanks for seeing a future in it too, at this stage they look like their just need good ads and customers will come flying
wilmonm (1 month ago)
ARC is one to hold for the very long term... its good idea to top up your position whilst its trading at a discount to the list price. When they start monetizing Rain Mobile and TymeBank they should fly.
Rocky R (1 month ago)
I just like their portfolio holdings because its made up of listed and unlisted companies personally it gives a feeling balance, As we saw with that Capitec share price increases over the last 10 years where the bases of it being them stealing customers through their low banking fees, now think how big TymmeBank will be the moment the ball gets moving, great leadership proved by how fast they responded and the share recovery from a minor downfall not only the EOH saga but the IPP corruption rumors. As you know what most share investors say " if you invest when the news come out then you are probably already late" so no I don't know anything that most don't know. At this rate im looking for R8 or more a share by December. But lets wait for their SENS reales on their quarter results, then we see if they are really on an uptrend
