Great things come from small beginnings. Start from small amount, don’t invest your blood sweat money on stock entirely. Take start from Rs. 10,000/- and later invest the profit from the initial investment in purchasing other companies’ shares.
Paying more for stocks and later become empty handed. Don’t invest on those companies whose share price are too high, you will get less shares and if value decline, then you lose hope of investing to stock any other time.
Knowledge is power-don’t waste it. Keeping the economic, political, Interest rate and technological factors in consideration. Pakistan is a place where anything can happen at any time.
