How much do I need to invest in the Stock Market?
During a gathering, my friends and I are talking about sports then suddenly one friend approached and asked me in a very low voice…
Friend: I heard you are into investing. How much do I need to invest in the Stock Market?
ME: P 5, 000 (Five Thousand Pesos) smiling: D
Friend: how much do I need so I can invest in the Stock Market?
ME: P 5, 000 (Five Thousand Pesos)
Friend: really? Now in shock and suddenly amazed
I told my friend that it only takes P 5,000 to open a stock market account with COL Financial. He just needs to enroll and he is in.
I saw his face dumbfounded and I knew I needed to explain more to him the importance of investing. So I explained on how it works and showed him part of my COL portfolio. (Pls see photo below:)
He asked me how I managed to get the following:
|26.56% growth on MEG|
|15.32% growth on SMPH|
|I also explained to him why I have -4.93% on my SMC.|
My friend is still in shock, surprised and got very excited but he suddenly said…
“If I only knew that years ago…now I don’t have money. I just bought a new basketball shoes and had already spent my savings.”
I’m curious and asked him other questions.
ME: So when do you plan to start investing?
Friend: I can’t start yet; Maybe… I will only be able do so once I settle all my loans first…
I tapped my friend at the back, smiled and said:
How hard is it for you to earn P5,000?
If you think it’s hard then let’s see what can you buy with P5,000.
P5,000 = You can already open an account with COL Financial and start investing
P5,500 = You can also buy a 2nd hand Jordan 5 Wolf Grey Sz. 10.5
