Is it risky to invest in the Philippine Stock Market? I'm eyeing Jollibee, Cebu Pacific, and Meralco stocks right now. I've got 20,000 in hand for my investment. Do you think it will be worth it?

I have been investing in the Philippine Stock Market since last year and so far I don't regret it because the 25K Pesos I invested has increased to 35K in a year. I have to warn you though that before you invest you should study the basics and be more vigilant about the companies you need to buy and do not invest the money you will need in the next 5 years in stocks because no one can really time when the market is down or up. My main advice to you is to read more about it first before you invest.

If you have that much money, you may be able to buy stocks from those three companies that you've mentioned. I know that investing in the stock market can be uncertain these days. But I do know of some people who are still able to earn a decent amount from investing in the stock market. You just have to study the company before buying or trading any of their stocks.

Investing is stocks is good but then you have to be very careful and know the company's profile first. Place your money in good earning companies like MERALCO. They have "monopolized" the power sector in the country and this makes them a very good company to invest in.
