Investing you money as someone wise once remarked is;

"Buying a day in the future that you won't work".

Personally, this line makes hell lot of sense to me. If you invest and do it systematically, over time, you sure to grow you wealth. I am not taking about getting rich quick runs.

2 Ways to Make Money

According to Investopedia gives for investing for future is the prospect of not having to work your entire life! If you look carefully, there are two ways to make money.

1. By working for others or

2. Having your money work for you

If you keep your money in your back pocket instead of investing it, your money doesn't work for you and you will never have more money than what you save. By investing your money, you are getting your money to generate more money by earning interest on what you put away or by buying and selling assets that increase in value.

Investing is not simple and not for everyone so to speak. But like any other fields, like law, accounting, etc, you can learn and practice to be a good investor. It takes bit commitment and loads of determination to be a successful investor.

So for those very new to the thing called stock market, what is a publicly listed company? Where do I find them and how do I invest in them? These are but few of the many questions that bombard newbies who wish to invest in stock market.

What a publicly listed companies?

The site investopedia defines ‘Public Company’ as;

“A company that has issued securities through an initial public offering (IPO) and is traded on at least one stock exchange or in the over the counter market. Although a small percentage of shares may be initially "floated" to the public, the act of becoming a public company allows the market to determine the value of the entire company through daily trading”

When a company goes public as explained above, the company is subjected to greater scrutiny by government authorities and investing public. That is not to say going public is bad for companies. As matter of fact, taking a company public is a big milestones achieved by those who found and build the company or those that are hired to manage the company for that matter.

Keeping a company as Private Company, which means not listed in a stock exchange or going public is a highly critical decision for corporations.
