How does one educate themselves on investing in stocks? What do you look at in a company, what are good indicators of a strong growth, and etc?

Check the Wall Street Journal every day. Find the best companies. Do your investing. Then pray long and hard that you did the right things.

@crayon851,
One safe option is to consult any investment advisor to know in detail about pro's and con's of the investments.

@piapetersson90,
I never believed in investment advisers. They make their money from churning your investments. If they're so smart, why are they still working?

You have the greatest interest in your own money; how to save and invest. Just follow these simple rules:
a) save/invest regularly a percentage of your income.
b) set a goal for yourself on how much to invest; 15 to 20% of income.
c) invest in index funds; don't try to invest in individual companies unless you're willing to manage your investments on a regular basis. Most people who churn their investments lose money on commissions and fees; hard to make any profit.
d) invest for the long-term. Don't worry about the daily ups and downs. As long as our economy does well, so will your investments.
e) invest your money in ladders; not all at once. It averages out the lows and highs.
f) a good place to invest is at Fidelity or Vanguard. They both have the lowest fees in the industry.
g. go to Morningstar.com and check out the long-term performance of the best fund and/or companies. Be wary of their star system.
h. don't invest all your money into one basket. Diversify.
and finally,
i. have emergency savings in a bank.

Nobody can forecast the economy. It's not science; it's an art.
