Last year, I decided to invest just a little bit of money in a Sharebuilder investment account just for fun. It was very quick and easy to set up. I was even able to set up automatic investments. I wanted to have a little fun with just a bit of investment cash but not have to have a huge initial investment or spend an arm & a leg for each trade.
I bought my stocks not based on anything but the brands I buy. I’m not surprised at all that my best gain has been with my Apple Stock. Overall, I’m up 20% from my initial investment so I’m pleased with my return.
Right now, when you sign up for a Sharebuilder investment account with a initial investment of $25, you will get a $25 matching bonus. You can get on your way in just a few minutes. The basic plan is free and offers $4 automatic investments, which is very inexpensive.
