How Do I Start Investing? How Do I Buy a Stock? | Ask A Fool
 
02:41
In this edition of "Ask a Fool," analyst Austin Smith answers the question "Where do I start? How do I choose and purchase a stock?" He defers to the proven Peter Lynch model of buying what you know, which means investing in companies that you personally understand and that have relatively transparent business models. For beginning investors, some popular stocks with easy-to-comprehend business drivers include McDonald's (NYSE: MCD), Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX), and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO). Once you've identified a stock you're committed to, the next step is to open a brokerage account. Austin provides some popular companies as examples. You'll need your stock's ticker symbol, which can be found easily with a Google search, or by typing the company name into the search box at http://www.fool.com. Decide on the number of shares you'd like to buy, and then simply call your broker or use their online interface to place a trade.

What's the Difference Between a Growth Stock and a Value Stock?
 
02:48
The Motley Fool's Austin Smith answers the question: "What is the difference between a growth stock and a value stock?" Austin identifies value stocks as those which are mis-priced, or trading to a discount to their intrinsic value. Value investors are buying companies with the expectation that shares will rise to reflect the real value of the company. Meanwhile growth stocks are those which investors are buying with the expectation of large earnings in the future. There are a few tell-tale signs covered in the video to help you identify whether you're looking at one type of stock or another. Austin reminds investors that growth and value strategies aren't mutually exclusive, and thinks Warren Buffet said it best when he quipped that "growth and value investing are joined at the hip".

Which Index Fund to Invest in for the Long Term

In this clip, Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp explain the differences between the two most popular market index funds, and which one will give you a better return on your investment. Also, they look into the different fee structures of several of the most popular firms you’d buy these funds from. This podcast was recorded on Mar. 8, 2016. Imagine owning Amazon.com (up over an insane 4,000% since 2001) when Internet sales rendered big-box retailers obsolete... Now an industry 99% of us use daily is set to implode...

Social Security Benefits: Is Waiting Just Plain Wrong?
 
03:12
Social Security gives you the choice of whether to take smaller benefits as early as age 62 or wait for larger benefits until as late as age 70. Even though countless analysts have shown that many people get more money in the long run by waiting longer before taking Social Security benefits, millions remain unconvinced and take them as early as they can. In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, looks at the arguments for and against waiting to take Social Security benefits. Dan notes that even though you get a reduced benefit by taking Social Security early, you get the money at a time when it might have more value to you in terms of enriching your life. Moreover, with break-even dates in your late 70s or early 80s, many people simply don't believe the actuarial figures that suggest they could live a lot longer than they expect. Dan looks at data showing that 40% of retiree-age Social Security recipients are 75 or older, with one in eight 85 or older, and notes that the data doesn't include the impact that delaying Social Security can have on younger spouses and survivors. Dan concludes that you must take health issues and other personal information into account to make the best decision, with no hard-and-fast rule applying to every single individual.

Many people are excited about our Foolish recommendations, but are still held back by one big hurdle -- knowing how to purchase shares of their favorite companies. Once you get started it's actually quite easy. Because we Motley Fools are advocates of the "do it yourself" investing strategy, Austin suggests opening an account with a discount brokerage firm. These companies charge anywhere from $7-$10 to buy and sell your positions. As a Foolish rule of thumb, don't forget to keep your trading fees below 2% on average. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

What's a Point? How the Dow Keeps Score
 
03:44
The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Investing Basics" series, in which Motley Fool contributor and financial planner Dan Caplinger discusses topics from around the investment world. Today, Dan looks at the Dow Jones Industrial Average to answer a very basic question: what do points in the Dow mean? Unlike stocks, where a "point" is a dollar, the value of Dow points isn't nearly as clear. As Dan describes, stock splits and component replacements over time require changes to what's known as the "Dow divisor" in order to keep the Dow consistent over time. Despite its flaws, the Dow's point system is an easy way for the public at large to track the stock market, and Dan thinks it's worth holding onto.

Tesla Model X Redefines the SUV

In this video, Motley Fool senior technology analyst Daniel Sparks looks at Tesla Motors' 2015-launched Model X and discusses why the SUV is so critical to the electric-car maker's business. From its Falcon Wing doors to its massive and unique windshield, Sparks believes demand won't be a problem for Tesla's newest electric vehicle. Further, Sparks believes Tesla CEO Elon Musk was spot on when he said Model X is a better SUV than the Model S is a sedan.

When is Dividend Reinvestment a Bad Idea? - Ask a Fool
 
03:20
Dividend stocks have gotten more popular than ever as a source of income, but what if you don't need the cash that dividends provide? Reinvesting dividends often makes a huge difference to your long-term performance, but there are cases when it's the wrong move. In this installment of our Ask a Fool series, Fool contributor Dan Caplinger answers a reader's question about when you shouldn't reinvest dividends. Dan notes that reinvesting dividends can work out badly if a stock stumbles, and so you should closely evaluate each dividend-payer in your portfolio to see whether dividend reinvestment is appropriate. He also gives some guidelines for other situations when you should think twice about reinvesting your payouts.

This resource was designed to cover everything that new investors need to know to get started today. For your free copy, just click the link above. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Brendan Mathews take a question from a reader who asks, "I am a relatively novice investor trying to move away from managed mutual funds into more index funds/ETFs. I'm hesitating to buy index funds right now though, because the market seems to be at a peak. Does this matter when buying index funds? Will there be benefits (like dividend payments) that make it worthwhile no matter what level the market is at? Or should I wait a while and hope for cheaper prices of ETFs?" Jason and Brendan both think investing with ETFs and/or index funds are great ways to cut the costs that many actively managed funds can bear. Buying shares in something that mirrors the S&P 500 for example can give an investor plenty of diversity while offering them all the opportunity to partake in the market's overall gains. Because Fools tend to look at investing over the course of many years though, instead of trying to time the market and invest when prices are lower investors are better served by investing on a consistent basis. Buying in both the good and the bad times will help smooth out returns over the long haul while eliminating the need to try to figure out where the market is going to go in the short run.

3 Social Security Secrets You Probably Don't Know
 
02:25
Social Security is an essential part of most people's financial planning for retirement. But many people don't know everything they should about the Social Security program. In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, looks at three Social Security secrets that few people know. Dan points out that only 70% of the program's 57 million beneficiaries are retired workers, with disabled workers, survivors, and dependents making up the remainder. He also notes that some state and local government workers don't participate in Social Security, instead having their own separate pension plans. Dan concludes with a reminder that divorced spouses can claim benefits under an ex-spouse's work history under certain circumstances, as long as they were married 10 years or more and meet other requirements.

This Little-Known Social Security Trap Could Leave You With No Benefits
 
02:01
Social Security is a key part of your financial security in retirement, but many people don't realize that they're not even eligible to receive Social Security benefits. One little-known rule often gets ignored until it's too late for unsuspecting retirees. In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, talks about this trap for the unwary. Dan notes that in order to qualify for retirement benefits, you have to have earned 40 Social Security credits over the course of your lifetime. Dan points out that it's not hard to earn the credits, with earnings of just $1,200 producing one credit in 2014. But because you can only earn a maximum of four credits a year, the requirement essentially leaves those without 10 years of work history unable to claim benefits based on their own work history. As a result, those who start their careers late need to be mindful of the rule in order to avoid mistakenly believing that they've already earned Social Security benefits.

Add into that mix the continuing decline in smoking rates in the U.S., and tobacco investors are left wondering whether their investments are sound in today's changing climate. In this video, host Mark Reeth and Motley Fool analyst Mike Finarelli take a look at Altria (NYSE: MO), and why the biggest tobacco company is still a great bet for income investors. Mike discusses the brands under Altria's umbrella, and the powerful cash flow that lets the company be extremely shareholder-friendly in terms of capital distributions. Despite this being a difficult industry to grow in for Altria, Mike points to the brand strength that gives the company the pricing power to offset declining volume, and notes that the company should continue to be a great holding for income for a long time to come.
