One popular way for beginners to start investing is to choose index funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that provide exposure to a broad range of stocks. These types of investments can offer diversification and help mitigate the risk of investing in individual stocks.

Beginners also tend to lean towards “Blue-Chip” companies that they know such as Microsoft, Coca Cola, Nike, McDonald’s and more, as they are known for their reliability and long history.

Additionally, it's important to have a long-term investment strategy and not to be swayed by short-term market fluctuations or media hype. Consistent, disciplined investing over the long-term has historically produced better returns than trying to time the market or chase hot stocks.

Ultimately, it's always best to spend some time researching your chosen market to help ensure it matches your individual circumstances, goals and investment horizon.
