How Stock Investing and ETFs Work, Which ETFs to Choose, and How to Manage Them
Updated for 2024.
This eBook is for people who want a simple approach to investing that has been proven to work over the last 150 years.
Passive investing is a way to grow capital with very little activity or research. Just buy some of the ETF discussed in the book at regular intervals, and that is it.
What is an ETF? It is an exchange-traded fund. It’s like a mutual fund—maybe your work offers these to invest in— but with an ETF you can buy them in your own trading account, without a mutual fund salesman taking hefty commissions.
Simply put, it is a basket of stocks, and you are buying a piece of that basket and thus a portion of all those different shares/companies.
This eBook covers what ETFs to passively invest in (US or Canadian residents). They are not all created equal, so we want to be careful which ones we choose with our hard-earned money. This book reduces it down to a handful.
No guessing games.
Buying certain types of ETFs means you own hundreds of stocks, and the whole point of this is to keep costs very low, avoid unnecessary risk, while also getting a solid long-term return.
Over the last 100 years, this passive stock investing approach has averaged near 10% per year.
10% may not seem like a lot, but it makes millionaires over time via the power of compounding. This chart is based on $10K starting capital and $500 contributions per month.
Everyone has a different amount to invest and contribute, but the point is this: long-term passive investing grows capital…if you know what to buy.
On numerous occasions, famed investor and one of the richest men in the world, Warren Buffett, has recommended people use the passive ETF investing approach. This book lays out how to do it for yourself.
This Passive Stock Investing eBook covers:
- Why passively invest? EVERYONE should passively invest. Even if it’s a small amount. It takes little work and the capital grows over time. I’m a trader, and I still passively invest part of my money because it offers a great payoff for very little effort.
- What ETFs are. What to invest in and what to avoid.
- How to set up an investing account and make investments on your own (no middle man to slowly widdle away your nest egg).
- Top ETF picks for US and Canadian Investors.
- What to expect from the investments; actual data on ups, downs, and long-term returns.
This approach saves investors a large amount in fees compared to buying stocks individually or using an advisor.
Even a 0.6% difference in fees on $100K over 30 years ends up reducing your nest egg significantly!
Many financial advisors are taking an extra 1% per year over what many of the ETFs in this eBook charge. Mutual funds are sometimes taking up to 2.5% more.
Those fees are potentially reducing your nest egg by thousands per month. But you don’t even notice it probably, because the fees are hidden.
And those fees are avoidable with the approach you will learn in this book!
The passive investing approach actually tends to produce larger returns than when people try to “actively” buy and sell their investments. According to JPMorgan, one of the biggest brokerage banks in the world, the average investor makes 2.9% per year, yet if they passively invested in ETFs (like the ones discussed in this eBook) they would have made 9% per year over the 20 year period studied.
Learn about all this and a lot more.
Learn how to take control of your own finances and investing. Knock out the middleman. Reduce those fees, which could double your nest egg (relative to paying the fees). Passively invest at least some capital. Over the last 150 years, it has been a solid way to grow and compound money.
