How To Form a Stock Club
The investor comes in all shapes and sizes. One method of investing is to form a stock club. The members of the stock club pool a set amount of funds each month or quarter and then as a group decide which stock or fund to place their investment dollars. The members could be people you know from church, school or a chat buddy on the Internet. The stock club is made up of people from all walks of life and income levels. Generally, the stock club are comprised of people of like means and interests. The number of members in a stock club may be as small as four and as large as 10. The important ingredient in a stock club is that all members have a voice in the decision making process.
