How hard is it to double your money in the stock market?

I think we have always been told that making money is difficult, and to some part, I think that’s true. But if you invest your time to learn about any business, you can do fairly well. And I don’t think there is any safer investment than the stock market to double your money.

It’s only easy to make money when you have sufficient knowledge, or else it will be a plain gamble. And I would suggest you be far better playing at a casino than putting your money in any ABC company.

Now why invest in the stock market to double your money? For starters, there is no minimum capital required to start investing. For all the other businesses where you can double your money, you need to invest a hefty amount at the beginning. And for all other types of investments such as RD, FD, LIC schemes, etc., the return is a maximum of 10%.

Maybe if you are still living in the ’90s, you could say that investing in RD, FD, or LIC schemes is safe and the best investment anyone could possibly make. But wake up, we are in 2021, and with so many investment instruments, it’s high time you learn about stock markets.

The best part is that you only have to research the company and understand their business before investing your money, but once you do, all your work is done. Sit back and relax, let the company do all the work, and grow your money.

And believe me, this is not some trick. I will give you examples where companies have doubled the investor’s money in only one year.

All the companies more than doubled the investor’s money in just one year. Not only that, some of them are multi-bagger, growing the investor’s money four, five, or even six times. Meaning, if you invested 1 Lakh rupee, then after one year, it would have become 4 Lakh, 5 Lakh, or even 6 Lakh, depending on the company you invest in.

But how does one select the companies which can grow your money? Because there are many companies that have produced negative returns and destroyed investors’ money. One such example is Vodafone Idea. The stock is in continuous downfall from 65.59 and is currently trading at 11.70.

Sometimes stocks destroy investors money | How hard is it to double your money in the stock market?

So you need to be very careful when investing your money. We can’t go into the details on the process of selecting fundamentally sound companies because we have limited time and space here. Still, we will definitely discuss it in one of our future newsletters (so make sure you subscribe to our newsletter).

To conclude, you can definitely double your money in the stock market in 3-5 years, which is far better than traditional options. But there is a risk of losing your money, and to mitigate that risk, you can always invest your money in the Blue-Chip stocks (low risk, low reward).

And if you decide to invest your money yourself, make sure you study the markets and understand how to look at the companies’ fundamentals before you even think of investing your hard-earned money. 

Happy Investing!
