Author:   |    Publish date:


Investing is a way to grow your existing wealth but it is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Investors do not need to have tons of money to start investment. It can be quite challenging to invest our money wisely and effectively despite there is no shortage of information available in the digital age. This is because excessive information can often be overwhelming if investors do not have a systematic methodology in investment. In this blog post, we will be discussing on how can we earn from investment as an introduction before proceeding to our main topic - MQ Trader stocks investment methodology.

How do we earn from investment?

Investment enables us to earn profits through 2 main approaches:

  1. Interest and dividends from savings or dividend-paying stocks and bonds

Investors are able to earn interest from the saving in most of the trading accounts which is protected by Bank Negara although no transactions have been performed since the account is open. Besides, earning in the form of dividends can contribute to passive income for investors. Normally, profits are distributed by companies to the shareholders by declaring dividends.

  1. Appreciation of value from a stock portfolio, real estate or other assets

Capital appreciation can be one of the channel to earn from investment. It occurs when the shares invested commands a higher price in the market than an investor originally paid for the shares. There can be a general trend for share values to increase including macroeconomics factors such as strong GDP growth and low interest rate. Additionally, a stock price can be boosted when the underlying company is growing faster than analysts expect.

Share markets – primary and secondary

The stock market is divided into two major categories which are primary and secondary market. In the former, securities are issued and eventually listed on the stock exchange, Bursa Malaysia. Normally, new shares are issued to the stock market in the form of initial public offering (IPO). To know more about IPO, please read MQ Trader – Introduction of IPO

Buying and selling securities that are already owned from primary market take place in the secondary market. The price of the shares fluctuates depending on the demand of the market on the shares and it is no longer affected by the issuance price of IPO. This is where investors can earn the capital gain when the share price goes up.
