July 15, 2016 - PRLog -- In How the Stock Market Works, financial journalist Michael Becket provides an informative look at the key elements of the stock market, with a focus on Great Britain. From basic definitions of stocks, bonds, derivatives, and alternative investments to advice on how to analyze financial opportunities, Becket provides the tools necessary for novice investors to enter the stock market with confidence.

According to Becket:

·      A company raises capital needed for startup costs or expansion by several means, including the sale of shares. Shareholders own a piece of the company and have voting rights.

·  One way for individual investors to avoid risk is to purchase shares via investment trust companies, which pool investments over many corporations.

·       Choosing investments is partly a matter of personal preference and involves consideration of various factors, including risk level, time frame of the investment, and potential ethical concerns.

·    Investors should investigate company documents such as annual reports, profit/loss statements, auditor reports, and balance sheets prior to purchasing shares.

·    Investors should be wary of all investment advice. They should seek out available information via news outlets and indices of market performance, and filter all the information they gather through the lens of their own common sense.

·   When to buy shares is often regarded as being much more important than what shares to buy. Timing of purchases depends on several factors, including the economy, currency rates, interest rates, inflation, and pending elections.

·       In addition to the well-known, large stock markets (e.g., the New York Stock Exchange), there are many smaller exchanges that provide ample opportunities for private investors.

·        Shareholders are company owners and have significant rights. The company is required to disclose certain information to shareholders on a regular basis and must consult with them regarding major corporate decisions.
