U.S. stocks rose, adding to the biggest weekly rally since April, after oil's drop below $115 a barrel boosted retailers and credit card companies.

Welcome to - How Investing Works
Hello and welcome to Stockchip. Investing money successfully is not gambling. Profitable money investing requires patience and a well devised game plan. This means setting up reasonable investment return targets and determining how much risk you are willing to assume in order to achieve these returns. The goals of investing money properly are to generate stable returns and avoid losing money.

Investing money usually means investing in equities. Equity in the form of shares represents ownership in a company. If the company does well, the value of the shares will rise. To generate returns from money investing in stocks or penny stocks, becoming familiar with the companies is a must.
