The LSherie Alert, LLC welcomes you to another edition of  Money Mondays, a financial wellness conversation to help build your financial wealth with financial guru, Andrell D. Harris.  Money Mondays was created to share financial wisdom, tips, and other suggestions for you to follow.  Andrell is an accomplished businessman, investor, philanthropist and lover of Jackson State University. Why are we doing this?  Why not?  Millions of people including myself are looking for ways to increase our finances, learn the tricks of the trade, become active in stock and investments and so much more.  The purpose of  learning is sharing what’s been learned to help others.




“C” in Jackson, Mississippi Asks:

“What would you suggest for beginner wanting to invest in the stock market? Stocks or Mutual Funds? What is a great amount for your first investment?”
For a beginner who wants to get involved in investing I would encourage the individual to assess their risk tolerance.  If you want the “high risk, high reward” factor I would say stocks, if you don’t like risk I would suggest mutual funds.  Both investments are driven by movements in the stock market, mutual funds have less implied risk because this investment vehicle spreads the risk around to multiple stocks that essentially determine if the mutual fund does well or not.  If you are buying individual stock companies with tons of cash and low price to earnings ratios you will be fine in most cases.  These are stocks like AAPL, WMT, T, VZ, BP, MO, and GM.  These are stocks that I love in their perspective fields, I am not telling you to buy these do your own due diligence before buying any stocks.  
As far as the amount for investing, it depends on your strategy.  In my opinion I think that $500 is the least that I would want to put in the stock market.  Keep in mind that whatever you put in the stock market needs to be money that you don’t mind giving up for at least five years.  The stock market is cyclical so there is a chance that the market could fall after investing, there is also a chance stocks could go much higher.  To avoid excessive upfront risk be prepared to put the money that you are investing away for at least five years.  Good luck investing, the stock market will change your life…it changed my Financial Life!    
Blessings and Love,
Andrell D. Harris

In today’s economy, it’s important that we learn how to not only save money, but also how to invest and make money!
