This is just the wrong place for your question. Go to a website like maybe justonelap.com for starters and start reading from there and keep on reading - to get you going. (In meantime your money is safe in the bank.)Forget about this "game" and get serious - GOOD LUCK!

@prancing horse. I cashed out at a profit and went into Steinhoff at R79.68. I see Nampak is back over R20. Are you going to take some profit on this share?

Here is a clue to the answer if you are an investor - and frankly its good advice. Piet Viljoen was recently quoted as saying " ..investing thrives on disgust and neglect . You do not buy those companies that people are sitting around the campfire singing KUM BAH YAH about." ( If you are part of the herd though this is meaningless input to your because they and you WILL be singing about shares.)

@Preston, no haven't taken any profit yet.Currently in Croatia going back to Italy for a week then back home. Hope by that time 21 is reached so it can pay for the next vac. Pleased to see NED recovery as well as that puts me very much in the dark green.

@prancing horse, enjoy the rest of your holiday. Hopefully Nampak will prove some of its skeptics wrong.

its a pretty big question but let me say it is a lot of fun trying to get it right-been doing this as an investor for 20 years and I now know that I do not know what I am doing-having said that I have survived and brought up my family on income from this.my approach is to look for value and buy good companies on bad news-ie the share is "undervalued" and has a pe of around 10 and a dividend of around 5%. when you make mistakes(and u will) you sell your "bad" companies on good news-ie try to get out as best u can. there are other approaches do plenty of reading and I would recommend the intelligent investor by Benjamin graham-bit old fashioned but an honest account of the ups and downs of investing- of course if you want to trade then that is a whole different ball game and not one I am able to give u any input on

Well if you want shares that give you money, look for shares that pay a decent and consistent dividend yield. At least that share might "give you money" once or twice a year - regardless of whether the share price appreciates or not. A share will give you money, I guess if you sell once you have realised a gain. But what shares and at what price - well run a few filters, available under the Instruments menu, and see what you get. Listen to people on the forum. Read, read and read some more. And ask questions - we should be able to, on the forum, without incurring the ire of the "if you have to ask that sort of question...." brigade. But maybe phrase your question towards the specific, as opposed to the very general.
