Week 1: Stock Basics

This week’s goal is to introduce you to stocks and help you build a foundation for investing in the stock market.  This is a great place to start if you are a beginning investor or would like a refresher if you have already started on your investing journey.

 

Watch Lists

A watch list helps you to keep an eye on stocks you wish to own or may already have in your portfolio.  Creating a watch list is one of the first things you should do before purchasing stock.  You can have as few as one stock on your list or as many as 25, if not more.

Day 3: Watch What? Watch Lists

Creating watch lists can be interesting and you may want to have one list or multiple lists that are organized the way you want.  You can organize them by industries or by stock price – it’s all up to you.  You can even add mutual funds from your 401k that you may want to keep tabs on.

With today’s technology, many smart phones allow you the option to set up a watch list, where you can take a peek at stocks on your list while on the go.

Setting Alerts – As an investor, it is good practice to set alerts for stocks on your watch list.  By doing so, you will receive notification when a stock has met certain criteria.  You can select from a variety of alerts – investment, account, and market alerts.  For the purposes of this challenge, we will focus on investment alerts.  Investment alerts primarily focus on movements with a company’s stock price.  You can set an alert to be notified if the stock price rises above a certain amount or if the stock price drops below a certain amount.

Today’s Investing Activity: Create a watch list. Set an investment alert.

If you have a brokerage or IRA account, then download the phone app for your institution.  If you do not have a brokerage or IRA account, then you can download the Yahoo! Finance app for free to complete today’s activity.

  • Create a watch list. You can start with the three stocks from the previous day’s activity.
  • Add Jamba, Inc. (JMBA) to your watch list
  • Set an Investment Alert for JMBA for when the Price Rises Above $112.00 and Below $100.00
  • Screenshot your watch list and share it in the The Stocks & Stilettos Society or in the comments below

Today’s investing activity focuses on preparation and organization.  This preparation comes in the form of a watch list and helps you to get in position to purchase stock when the time is right for you.  Setting alerts allow you to be notified in order to not become consumed with constantly watching the market or a company’s stock price.  Getting organized helps to alleviate the feeling of becoming overwhelmed and reduces the fear that can come with investing in the stock market for some women.

    How do you set the alerts?

      You have to set the alert on the desktop version for Yahoo! Finance. For Fidelity, you should be able to do it right inside the app. I will post a video in the group.
