How To Start Investing in the Philippine Stock Market

wise owl
I know I’ve been telling people about stock market however, I haven't really fully, even begun, to explain the whole thing. Silly me.

Let me start by saying, “Anyone can invest in the stock market.” Yes, Anyone. Through the help of truly rich club, this post will try to define, basically, what stock market is and how it works.  I’ll try to be as brief and as lay man's terms as possible.

To explain stock market, one just has to think of 3 things
1. buying shares from companies;
2. let the value grow; and
3. selling them on a favored, later time.

First off, the only term you need to focus on for now is stock shares. Stock Shares is basically a piece of a whole. Say a slice of cake, where the whole cake is the value of the public Stock company. Imagine you bought a slice of cake worth 1 peso (because the cake is cheap like that) and the whole cake is worth 8 pesos. With simple math, you get that there are 8 slices of cake for a whole cake. Stock shares are the slices of the cake and that slice of cake is your own share or your own slice. You now have the right of it and also you are now part of the whole. Now imagine that it so happens the cake became so popular and an increase in demand occurred (this means business is growing). Now the cake is worth 16 pesos, which means it is now doubled the original price. Essentially, your slice of cake will worth 2 pesos now. That's the magic of stocks and it is actually as simple as that.

Companies with good business grow their value or worth over time. Of course, some corporations could also go down. The fun part actually comes in choosing which companies to invest in, this part is what most people conceive as difficult, challenging, and confusing. Let me tell you that is quite simple. Really.

COL (CITISEC Online) Financial, the preferred online stockbroker, offers a simple EIP program. This comes from a very simple premise that when you buy stocks on a regular or monthly basis, you eventually build a good portfolio which could then generate good returns in the long run (15 years or so). This of course is possible if you buy on COL’s suggested blue chip company, or the big companies which have very high probability of sustaining and increasing their values in the long haul. I could not further emphasize the importance of starting early if ever you consider investing in stocks.

How much do you need to invest in stock market?

Well, any amount will do. However, you will need to have at least 5000 Php to enroll to the online broker. But don't be confused, this amount is your initial investment and already considered as your trading value. You just have to set aside any amount you can every month for you to continue buying the stocks you love. In addition, I’m glad to share a strategy that will somehow automate the investing system regardless of your cash inflow.

What exactly do you need to do to start investing?

You just have to enroll in Col Financial (previously CITISEC online). You can check their site and enroll to the EIP program (Now called Starter Program), since it’s initial deposit involves only 5000php as I was talking earlier (I'll write more about enrollment process on a next post). It's rather simple and you can enroll anywhere in the Philippines or even outside the country. All instructions are laid out in the site.

The smart way around Stock Market

As mentioned above, the challenge in stock market is figuring which companies to invest or put your trust with. I'm glad to inform you that there is a smart way around this. I won't say it is a definite method since investing, from the world itself, is not a definitive thing. You should be aware that investing always involves risk. However, the truly Rich club, a group in which I am a member for a year now, offers you good financial advice on which stocks to buy. The prolific speaker Bo Sanchez and his trusted advisors head this club. These professionals offer another method of going with stocks. It’s a semi passive approach where you maximize your earnings and utilize in maximum the art of compounding interest in the long run. Here's a post I created about it.

As of now, I would like to strongly invite you and be excited about this investment program. Investing in stocks MAY give you an average of 15 to 20% growth in your money (the range could go negative to 100% to 200% or even more). This is much better than placing your money on banks where inflation easily kills your 1 to 2 percent interest rates.  Moreover, people tend to be afraid of things they are unfamiliar of. This is why NOW is always the right TIME to check on any investment programs and see where you best fit. Time is so valuable. If anyone could do it, you could absolutely do it as well .
