What Are Stocks?

A stock is a share or part of a company that entitles the shareholder to a fixed dividend and the payment of these dividends takes precedence over ordinary share dividends. A stock can be purchased or sold on the stock market as the value of the stock fluctuates on a daily basis.

Why Invest Money in Stocks?

How to Invest Money in Stocks?

The first step to investing in the stock market is to get a broker or a Robo-advisor like Cube Wealth. The broker is necessary for you to buy or sell shares.

Your broker will ask you to open a Demat and trading account in which you will hold the stocks that you buy.
