Views 27522022.09.21

Building wealth through stock investments requires a critical first step: selecting the right stocks. When you choose stocks that continue to increase in value, you can confidently make stock trades that help you build profits and an excellent portfolio. Sounds easy, right?

It may feel like you are fishing in the dark. Finding the right stocks and stock trading can be challenging, especially for newer investors who feel overwhelmed by the number of options available on the U.S. stock exchange and popular Hong Kong international exchanges. Does this sound familiar to you?

Fortunately, there are strategies that investors like you can use to pick the best possible stocks and build your portfolio confidently. The key lies in access to data-driven stock selectors that can help you drill down and find the stocks that fit your investment strategy best.

Getting started picking your stocks

To make the best decisions regarding stock picking, you need to determine your investment portfolio goals. This means determining whether you want to be conservative or aggressive in your investing. Similarly, you need to consider if there are particular industries where you feel most confident investing. Many investors have specific industries where they like to concentrate investments and stock selection. For example, if they feel confident in understanding the tech industry, they may want to invest in this area.

Aggressive investors, for example, may want to invest in IPOs and go after newer or potentially up-and-coming stocks. More conservative investors may feel more interest in ‘blue-chip’ companies that have steady reliability they can count on.

When you know your goals, you can start learning what stock or company you want to invest in. Knowing this information will help you feel less like you are fishing in the dark and help you reel in the big one.
