Investing in stocks is one such easy and smart way of making money. By the virtue of buying stocks of a particular company, one automatically gains part of ownership of such a company. Thus one becomes a shareholder and he is entitled to get dividend benefits. In short, one makes money without getting his hands dirty nor breaking any sweat. What one needs is his capability to make smart choices and little money to start purchasing the stocks.
