The Best Small Investments

Investing even $20 makes a big difference.

Wall Street’s recent cataclysmic events are still unfolding and the entire planet is feeling their aftershocks. For this reason, interest in what is going on in the stock market is rising quickly, even for those who do not normally understand what the stock market is all about, or what Wall Street even has to do with it. Whether you are completely new to this, or at least have a small idea of how the money markets and stock markets function, the purpose of this article is to explain how to get the most out of the best small investments on the stock market, and how a small, single initial investment can easily grow to benefit you on a long term basis, even when right now all you have to invest is some insignificant amount of money like $20 for example.

$20 dollars may not initially sound like a lot, but you can easily put it toward shares in one of many large companies like Harley-Davidson, Intel and even Johnson & Johnson. There are thousands of different options available offering shares below $20. If you invest $100 instead, even more options will open up to you. So now let us take a brief look into investing small, medium and large amounts of money into the stock market.

Let us begin with the initial small investment of $20 dollars.

Are you afraid that it is really not worthwhile to invest such a small amount? One way to invest this money for a grand return is to invest through DRPs, or Dividend Reinvestment Plans. These are also known as Drips. Drips or DRPs and Direct Stock Purchase Plans or DSPs allow you to completely bypass the broker, avoiding the need to pay a commission, by buying directly from the company that you are looking to invest in, or buying from the company’s own unique agents instead. There are more than 1,000 unique major corporations that offer these types of stock plans, and many do not charge a penny in fees. Those that do charge fees usually offer fees that are low enough that it is still quite worthwhile to invest a small mount like $20 or $30 each time that you make investment.

These investments are some of the best small investments that you can make because they are ideal for anyone who is just starting out and is looking to invest only small amounts at a time. Drips will allow you to purchase as often or as infrequently as you like. Once you are in the plan, you can set up automatic payment plans so you can make contributions whenever you like without actually even needing to buy a full share each time. So if you can only invest small amounts each month, invest what you can and every time you accrue enough to buy a share, you can. This is why this is one of the best small investments that you can make – Because every dollar that you invest counts and you can accrue a lot of money slowly to invest in good stocks, even if you cannot always buy a share with each investment.
