Tips for Investors -- Thrive Online

Where to find expert online information on how to invest and make your money grow...

investing onlineThe news may be that savings is down in the current economy, but if you talk to any of your friends or co-workers, you will find out that investing is up.

Consumers have discovered that putting money into a savings account that may pay less than 3% interest won't keep your savings growing as fast as inflation. Today's savvy saver is looking at investments that return much more than that.

Whether your goal for investing is to provide a good base for the business you plan to start, the house you plan to buy, the baby you plan to put through college or the dreams for your retirement, you want to find the best way to make your money grow...and a single digit interest savings account doesn't fit those plans.

Individual investments in the stock market are being pushed as a good long term hedge against inflation. Investments in mutual funds or individual stocks may just be the growth base you need for your future college or retirement funds.

"A street savvy investor can
beat a savings account
return in most cases - and
that's the goal.
