      Is it wise to invest into major companies? I always wanted to invest into companies like Facebook, Google, Amazon and so on. But I wouldn’t even know where to begin in those regards. Do you guys have any suggestions for any major companies worth investing in? And if so, how much of a profit do you think I could make at some of these companies?

      Never invested into any major companies, but I would like to buy stock maybe in a few of the top companies around. I don’t know if I’d want to invest in facebook, Amazon or even Google, as I imagine there are so many already invested there.

      I would think investing into a big company that doesn’t have a lot of investors is more ideal. But that’s my opinion.

      Hi,

      SO here is the deal. YOu need big money to run out and buy such stocks. Stocks usually trade in standard lots of 100; this makes it easier to find someone a buyer or seller. Try to find someone selling 37 shares or 19 shares, Right?
      As of closing Jan 26/2021
      Apple $143.16 a share = $14,160 for a 100 share
      Amazon $3,316 a share = $332,613 for a 100 shares

      So, as you can see, that is a lot of cash to put into a single stock. If you are new to investing, you might be better off buying an ETF or mutual fund that attempts to copy the above companies.
      look at this

      cost $48 a share and holds Nividia, Tesla, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, etc. Much more affordable and more diversified than buying a single stock, still heavy on the tech side.
