Stock Investing

Stock investing is the process of selecting various shares of companies for investment. Shares of the company represent a piece of ownership. The goal is these shares rise in value due to the rising fortunes of the corporation. This means the corporation is expanding, increasing sales and profits. The key to profitable investing stock is finding a solid company with an aggressive competent management team.

Good stock investing is finding companies that are constantly moving ahead. Companies that are satisfied with the status quo will have shares whose price is stagnant. Stock investors will pay a premium for companies who are constantly looking for ways to boost sales and profit. Successful investing in stocks is about investing in growth.

E-Trade buying Harrisdirect for $700M

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- E-Trade Financial Corp. shares rallied Monday after the company said it would buy brokerage Harrisdirect from BMO Financial Group for $700 million cash.

The move marks the latest in a consolidation among brokerage firms that saw Ameritrade set plans to buy TD Waterhouse in June.

"E-Trade is reacting to [its] failed bid for Ameritrade by acquiring an alternative target," Fox-Pitt Kelton analyst David Trone said in a note to clients Monday.

Trone said mergers in the industry may not be over, and suggested that Ameritrade may one day attempt to take over E-Trade.
