Should I buy shares now?

During these times of uncertainty investors are asking should I buy shares now. The answer is simple. At Under the Radar Report we have been buying shares right now in the current stock market turmoil. We’ve been quick to buy shares that are much more leveraged to market conditions such as Kogan (KGN). To view a full list of the shares we have been buying, click here.

Buy shares selectively in small parcels

As a new investor it is smart to invest in the stock market right now. Under the Radar Report's mantra is to buy shares selectively in small parcels. We urge new investors not to chase share prices and instead be patient and stick to the price you are comfortable buying at. In this changing market another opportunity to buy will arise.

Buying opportunities for new investors

The volatile stock market means there are buying opportunities for new investors. The Australian stock market is measured by the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries Index is about 20% cheaper than it was three months ago. If you do not buy shares now, when will you? We recommend that new investors keep a close eye on the shares in their portfolio as things can change quickly.

If you are going to buy shares right now, you need independent stock research with clear Buy, Hold and Sell recommendations. This will help you know exactly which shares are right for your portfolio. We recommend you start investing small amounts of money into select stocks right now to position your portfolio for growth. Use Under the Radar Report to determine which stocks to buy now. 

Be an informed investor

Now is the time to buy shares and you must read research and form your own opinion on each stock. This is especially crucial during times of uncertainty as things can change quickly and if you aren’t well researched on the shares you buy you will struggle as a new investor.

Take profits on stocks when the opportunity arises

Under the Radar Report also suggests that investors take profits on stocks when the opportunity arises. In Under the Radar Report's own portfolio we are selling stocks, that have climbed between 30% and 65%.  
If you are a new investor, divide your money by two or three as this will give you more than one stock to buy.  In the stock market, only invest as much as you can afford to lose. Don’t be surprised if the stock you buy falls by half and don’t be surprised if the stocks you don’t buy doubles.
