If you've already married, not likely to inherit any money from anybody nor win any lottery, find that starting a business is way too difficult, then there's only one way left - Invest your money!

Books For Beginner Stock Investors

If you wanna get started in investing in stocks, these are the books for you to read!

1. HOW YOU CAN GET RICH FROM THE PROPERTY AND STOCK MARKETS by Milan Doshi

Despite the long name and scary jargon, the first half of the book is actually a very good introduction to personal finance for beginners. Only the 2nd half is about property and stock but they are also quite introductory.

2. I LOVE STOCKS by Pauline Yong

This a very concise all-in-one book about stocks in Malaysia. The book covers 5 parts. The first part introduces the reader about what a stock is, Bursa Malaysia and how to get started. Then it talks about Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis, which are both essential skills in stock investing. Next, Part 4 talks about Market Analysis, in a way introducing the reader to the Top-Down approach and finally Part 5 talks about Strategies for Successful Investing In Stocks, as suggested by the author. In my opinion, this is definitely THE book for beginners to read! A MUST-READ for all stock investor.

3. INFINITE WEALTH by Lai Seng Choy

There are 7 chapters in the book, in which the first few chapters introduces the reader to stocks. Basically, the book shows the reader how 2 proven stock investment processes could help the investor generate great returns, even during a gloomy market. The thing I like about this book is that the author includes many real cases as good examples for the reader. A great follow-up to I Love Stocks!

4. STOCK SECRETS by Andrew Chia

These two books here are some of the best stock investment books there is in the market as they both teach investors of all ages a great technique crucial for successful investing. These 2 authors teach us how to do Fundamental Analysis correctly and how to identify Undervalued Stocks through some precise yet simple calculations. These 2 books are definitely must-reads!

      @anonymous: These are still great books. But I've gotta be frank, I haven't got the time to update my lens ever since I started working. I can that there were some new books like Lai Seng Choy's Freedom. But those I suggested are still great books!

      @bangcool: The thing about property is - an investor needs to have a huge capital. If not, he/she must borrow from banks and I don't like the idea of borrowing... Stocks, Index Fund, ETFs, REITs (or last resort, Unit Trust) require low capital. All we need are some research, skills and luck!

      @mich1908: Well, unfortunately, this is not the case in Malaysia. Many still have the industrial age mindset, where working for a fixed income is the way.
