Buying Stock in Your Favorite Brands

July 7, 2009

If you’re a true Chocolate Fashionista who loves to spend, spend, spend like me, consider owning a piece of your favorite retail empire. Investing in stock for your favorite brands is a sure way to not only increase your net worth, but to also be a company insider. Companies send you an annual report as well as information on products, trends, and future projects. How do you buy stock? You can visit your own personal financial adviser or use an online such as Scottrade, Sharebuilder, or Etrade to make your own investments. Find you favorite brand’s company symbol (i.e. Gap is GPS) using an online research tool such as Yahoo Finance or the company’s online site to get more information about investing.
