How can I build wealth by trading shares?

As stated above, it is an easy matter to build wealth when you trade shares online with nextmarkets. You can build up your portfolio to hold over a long period of time. This way, you benefit from growth in the value of your shares alongside share dividends, which are often paid to shareholders each year. The dividend payment will be based on the profits shown in the annual trading accounts, so will vary year-on-year.

Dividend payments will be credited to your nextmarkets trading account balance and you can make the decision of whether to invest the cash in more shares or withdraw it. The other way to build wealth by share trading is to buy shares when prices are low and sell them when their price peaks. Making the decision to sell shares can be difficult for novice investors, which is why the advice of our coaches is so valuable.

Will I get share certificates when I buy shares with nextmarkets?

If you’re still wondering what are shares exactly and how to make money on them, then take time to educate yourself at nextmarkets. Owning shares in any company makes you a part-owner of the business, and it used to be the case that all shareholders received share certificates as proof of ownership of their shares.

This is not the case now; shares tend to be held electronically. You still have the right to attend Annual General Meetings for any businesses in which you own shares and will also receive any dividend payments due on the shares you own. Holding shares electronically makes it far easier to trade shares and online share dealing is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to do so.

How do online stock brokers make their money?

One of the main reasons many punters fail to invest in stocks and shares is the high commissions and charges levied by traditional stock brokers. The benefit of share trading software and online trading platforms is that they make dealing shares far more affordable for normal people. Of course online stock brokers have to charge clients a fee for their services, however, this is minimal compared to traditional stock brokers.

So, if you’re wondering just how online stock brokers make their money, you will discover they either charge a commission on all sales and purchases or a flat rate charge. These costs are much lower than the fees banks or traditional stock brokers charge for their share dealing services.

Some examples of shares in UK indices

You can invest in a range of popular shares when you team up with nextmarkets for all your dealing. Some examples of shares you can buy that are quoted in the UK stock exchange include:

  • Marks & Spencer
  • Royal Bank of Scotland
  • Next Plc
  • Rolls Royce Holdings plc
  • BT

You may be wondering, what are stocks and how do they differ from shares? In all honesty, stocks are just the plural form for a bunch of shares. So, if you own a portfolio of shares in different companies you could refer to them as your stocks. If you are referring to a particular shareholding in a company like Boots plc, you might refer to them as your Boots shares.
