Index and Funds is the only way for a low capital portfolio to own a host of amazing companies in your portfolio. Buying a single share of Amazon, Google, Facebook and Apple each would cost you almost $3,000. However, some index or funds allows you to own these four companies and other quality companies with a low capital of $100. This would encourage a self-investor to save more money every month for a contribution.
As of 24th July 2017; Apple is $150.27, Facebook is $164.43, Microsoft is $73.79 and Google $993.84 each shares. Owning each of these shares today could cost more than $1400. Tech stocks are the hottest stocks to own since 2012 and still climbing since President Trump took the hot seat. There is definitely no slowing down for these technology stocks.
