Four reasons why you should invest in the stock market

reasons to invest in the stock market
  1. Future secured ✅: Investing is a no-brainer for millennials and veterans alike. This is because the long-term return on stocks bought 5 or 10 years from now offers a juicy prospect. For example, if you had invested $100 four years ago in Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), you would have $416 today. That’s a 316.54% increase in investment! Need I say more?
  2. Beat inflation 💸: Inflation is almost inevitable but investing offers you a silver lining! What this means essentially is that if you kept a portion of your earnings in a piggy safe and opened it up after a year today, that same amount of money will have lost its value by the current rate of inflation. However, setting aside a portion of your earnings into the stock market allows you to achieve two smart things: one, to grow your money in dollars, and two, to preserve this wealth and guard it against inflation.
  3. Own a piece of the pie 🥧: When you buy a company’s stocks, you own a small piece of that particular company. Now let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to own a slice of their favorite company!
  4. Potential high returns 💰: As an investor, it is important to do your research in identifying companies that have a good fit to invest in. Investing in these world-leading companies offers you the opportunity to grow your wealth over time.
