  • Jane's Stock Investment Katy Bischoff B1
  • I want to start investing my money in stocks to save some money. I have been researching stocks and I think I want to invest in Philips, but I am afraid I am not going to make the right decision.
  • I am going to talk to a stockbroker at Charles Schwab today to see if I am making the right choice. I hope he can help me make some money.
  • Charles Schwab
  • Yes I believe Philips is a smart stock to invest in; they have been having a great year and they have been in business for a while. Some thing to know about Philips is, their stock symbol is PHG and they are part of the New York Stock Exchange. The price of Philips is $27.58 per share and there is also a Broker Fee of 1.1% per trade.
  • I have wanted to invest for a while and thought now was a good time. I have been researching and decided on investing into the Philips stock. Do you think this is a smart choice?
  • You want to buy 135 shares of a $27.58 stock. If you multiply those, you get your total investment of $3723.30. But Charles Schwab does have a fee of 1.1% per trade; so if you times your total investment by .011, you will get a fee of $40.96. So your total cost for this investment is $3764.26
  • Okay that seems reasonable to me. Thank you for your help.
  • This sounds like a good option for me. So, if I bought 135 shares of this stock how much would my total cost be?
  • 10 months later...
  • I am moving out of my apartment in the city and moving into a house in the suburbs. I am going to my stock broker today so I can hopefully use my profit from my investment for a down payment on my new house.
  • Jane, the current price of your stock is $63.64. This is really good news for you. If you sold 135 stocks for $63.64 each, your total money recieved is $8,591.40. But of course this comes with a fee of 1.1%, which would bring a fee of $94.51. The total amount you will be paid out is $8,496.89, which should cover your down payment. If we subtract your total amount paid and your total cost, your total profit from this investment will be $4,732.63.
  • That is great news! Thank you so much for all your help, I can't wait to move into my new house.
  • Hi Jim, I was hoping today I could sell my stocks to pay for the down payment on my new house. Could you tell me how much of a profit I made?
