How to Invest in Stocks for Beginners – How to Start Out!

For our FREE kit to get started, head to

The U.S. stock market has proven to be one of the best ways for the average person to build long-term, lasting wealth. Over the last 10 years alone, the S&P 500 is up over 250% on a total return basis.

In the modern era, the U.S. stock market has thoroughly beat the returns earned in the housing market and it has CRUSHED simply holding cash.

Unfortunately, a recent Gallup poll indicates barely over half of Americans have any money invested in stocks.

At the Motley Fool, our goal is to make the world smarter, happier, and richer, and we can’t think of a better way to do that than to help would-be investors get started.

That’s why we’re going live on our YouTube channel! Our team is going to walk investors through the checklist of items they need to do before they start investing in the stock market, what to do when they buy their first stock and, they’ll even give viewers two great starter stocks for their watch list.

  1. It has been a productive year with the help of @robert01excell on lG , even with the pandemic and the financial hardships the world is facing, I have still traded and earned from my investment with him. Its diligence and consistency cannot be disputed, that’s why I’m sharing this to recommend y’all

  2. As a newbie I wanted someone financially capable of mentoring me thru this forex trade and process I was happy and lucky enough to encounter @FeliciaFx_trades on INSTa as my Account manager from this comment section recommending her. I gave a trial and I made $5k in 2 days of investing $600 incredible I'm loving this already♥️♥️♥️

  3. If I open an online brokerage account I see that I have two options: General (for rainy day) and IRA (with an annual limit). Is there an annual limit for the General rainy day account? I came into a small lump sum, but much larger than the IRA annual limit, and I'd like to invest it all in a stock for just a few years and sell at my discretion. P.S. I love your website and I tell everyone about it!

  6. If your interested, you can receive free stock with Robinhood. No commission or fees, the stock is valued between $2.50 to $200 and includes dividend paying stock. You do have to sign up an account with Robinhood, which is free and requires no money deposit, to claim it. It will ask for a bank account to transfer funds into this account but there is a button that says "can't find my bank in list" and it lets you skip that. In case you are wondering this is how Robinhood makes money:
    "We generate revenue from:
    Robinhood Gold, our margin trading service, which starts at $5 a month
    Interest from customer cash and stocks, much like a bank collects interest on cash deposits
    Rebates from market makers and trading venues"
    You have nothing to lose, only to gain by using the link to claim your free stock!

  7. Jason Moser's silence speaks volumes on the final question at the end of the video regarding commission free brokerage (it looks like he wishes to publicly endorse commission free brokerage, but decides to keep silent on the matter… it may be better not to upset certain folks). Yes, we know Motley Fool advertises on their website for certain commission charging brockerages… and seems to keep fairly silent regarding other brockerages that do not charge a commission. Hey, commission free brokerage is wonderful!!!

  8. Big fan of your portfolio of podcast as well as this channel. However, the audio output on the youtube channel is very low. Is there anyway you could adjust the audio on your end? I have the volume turned all the way up and it sounds like whispers compared to other channels.

  9. How do you make money/profit on the stock market.
    For example I had 5 share of KO. Sold it at the gain of +25. When i sold it the was price was at $57. When i brought it back it was at $54 but I still didn't see that extra cash on hands from the gain when I first sold it.
    Using rohinhood for my portfolio

  10. I hav a $151k public portfolio on my channel and hope to grow this to over $1million in under 10 years for those interested. Love the motley fool and would like to see more of Brian stoffel and Mathew cochrane
