Stock Market is so complex, yet, it is so simple that an ordinary person can do it. When I was a newbie investor, I learned these basic steps that until now I am still applying. These are basic concepts but very important. Forget it and you will journey the hard way. I learned this through my broker and I’m always keep this as a guide when buying winning stocks. How to buy the best stocks that will build your wealth?
These are the things that we need to consider…
Stock is a business and before buying, think its relevance to customers and to our country as a whole. For example, you are buying Ayala Land (ALI) which is on the property sector, the question is always how’s the trend right now with their business along with their competitors. How many OFW are renting and buying condos? How about shopping centers? Is SM (SMPH) still on the trend? Is banking sector “in” right now?
Why one bank is now even open during weekends? Our country is a consumer-driven country, spotting the right one could make a difference. Stocks that are in demand are Manila Water Co. (MWC), Meralco (MER), Jollibee (JFC) and many more… As long as the market is doing well and growing, price of these stocks will continue to go up and the businesses will continue to expand. Market is always volatile but these type of stocks will always find its way upward.
When, the Duterte administration came into play, the Mining sector is affected the most and that also affected their business and earnings. So it goes without saying, that, you can’t touch this sector this time. Choosing your winning stocks can be done through common sense and simple study.
Kindly read my previous blog A Former Ofw to a Multi-Millionaire.
You can also see the revenue and the revenue growth which are always up to date. When it says ”Buy”, that means that you can buy them and when that says, ”Hold” that means, that you have to stop buying because it’s already expensive and you need to wait for the price to drop to reinvest. It is as easy as that and you don’t have to make it too complicated!
Last year, I can still remember Cebu Pacific Airlines (CEB) paid big time of fines because of delayed flights. Did it affect the business? Yes, for short-term, but what happened now? They were able to bounced back and keep their competitive edge in the market and their stock is soaring high.
Ask me Why? Who owns Cebu Pacific? Gokongwei. Who owns Robinson Malls? Gokongwei. Who owns URC (the maker of C2, Chippy, etc.)? That’s still John Gokongwei! So, that’s why… The reason is the person!
These tycoons have hired the smartest and the best people in their management team and if there are problems along the way, they will always find best solutions and get back on track. You can also read my blog Start Now Not Later.
Strong Balance Sheet
Companies which have been here for a while like Ayala (AC), Universal Robina Corp. (URC), and Jollibee (JFC) have a strong balance sheet. That means that these companies have enough fund to sustain for long-term. Let me give you an example, When Mang Inasal came into the food business, it was the biggest threat of Jollibee. That was their greatest headache.
For the longest time, they have been puzzled how this new player was trying to beat them while their customers are divided. What Jollibee could do because it couldn’t beat the new player was just to buy it. A great acquisition! Jollibee bought 70% shares of Mang Inasal for 3 Billion.
Wew! You can’t do that without having much strong balance sheet.
I hope these tips can help you in investing winning stocks. These are the things that you need to familiarize to be successful in building your wealth. Buy it and Hold it for a time and see it yourself. You can also learn from my story on How I Made my First Million in the Stock Market.
