1.1 INTRODUCTIONAn investor means people who invest their savings. Investment is an activity, which is different from savings. Savings are generated when a person obtain from present consumption for a future use. Savings kept as cash are barren and do not earn anything. Hence, the saver has to find a temporary repository for his saving until they are required for his future, this result in investment. This is an era in which the investor or public are thinking of changing their investment from bank deposit to share market. They get better return from the investment in capital market than in case of bank deposit. Today, investment has become a household word and is very popular with people of all lifestyle. It is because of increase in working population, higher family incomes and consequent savings, availability of large and attractive investment alternatives, increase in investment related publicity and so on. Investment is a word of many interpretations. A person has advanced some money to others; he may consider his loan as an investment. He expects to get back the principal along with the interest at a future date. Another person may purchase a land for the purpose of price appreciation and may consider it as an investment. In the above cases, it can be seen that investment involves the employment of money with an aim of achieving additional income or growth in the values. Thus, investment may be defined as, a commitment of funds made in the expectations of some positive rates of return The capital market is a market for long-term funds-shares, debentures and bonds. Today the Indian capital market offers a variety of financial products with varied features and
benefits, for investors to choose from them. Investing in stock is most popular method of investment.
1.2 BASICS ABOUT SHAREPlain and simple, a stock is a share in the ownership of a company. A stock represents a claim on the companys assets and earnings. As you acquire more stocks, your ownership stake in the company becomes greater. Holding a companys stock means that you are one of the many owners (shareholders) of the company and as such you have a claim to everything the company owns. This means that technically you own a tiny little piece of all the furniture, every trademark, and every contract of the company. As an owner you are entitled to your share of the companies earning as well. These earning are called dividends and are given to the shareholders from time to time. A stock is represented by a stock certificate
1.3 BASICS ABOUT SHARE PRICE MOVEMENTStock prices change every day because of market forces. By this we mean that stock prices change because of supply and demand. If more people want to buy a stock (demand) than sell it (supply), then the price moves up. Conversely, if more people wanted to sell a stock than to buy it, there would be greater supply than demand, and the price would fall (Basics of economics). Understanding supply and demand is easy. What is difficult to understand is what makes people like a particular stock and dislike another stock. If investor is able to understand this he can know what people are buying and what people are selling. If he knows this he can know what price goes up and what price go down.12
