The stock market has always been a great place to get rich over the long run.
Many people do lose money in the market but it's usually because they don't know the ways to get rich investing in stocks.
Use these techniques and you will make money with stocks.
This is the classic model of getting rich in the market. Buy a stock cheap, wait for it to increase in value and sell for a profit. It's called value or growth investing. This technique can be done with mutual funds as well which reduces a lot of the risk of the market.
A dividend is a cash payment to the shareholders. If you own enough shares and the dividend is large enough, you can use the dividend as income. Usually, though, investors who want to get rich with dividend investing enroll the stocks in a DRIP (Dividend Reinvestment Plan). The cash dividend is then used to purchase more shares of that same stock. Over time this is a great way to accumulate more shares without additional out of pocket investing. Free Shares, yeah!
Penny stocks are stocks trading at very low prices, typically less than $1. This is the high risk corner of the stock market, but if you manage to pick the right stock the potential to get rich is huge. Imagine spending $.01 a share for a stock and selling it for $10 a share. That's getting rich.
An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is when a new stock comes onto the market. Many times there is a lot of publicity and fanfare around this new stock and the price shoots up in the first few days. If you time it right and can get in on the IPO you can get vary rich in a short amount of time.
A split is when one share of stock become many. A stock split can any number of shares for the original one like a 2-for-1, 5-for-1, 10-for-1, etc.
This is a great way to make money in the market because after the stock price drops initially to account for the split (your $10 stock will divide into a $5 stock but you'll have twice as many shares for example) the price then starts to climb as more investors want in.
To get rich in the market you just need to know how and be able execute your knowledge.
