This paper is intended for the novice investor that is primarily interested in stock market investment. It's usefulness should become evident once a novice consults different brokers for the same investment advice.

I propose few strategies and none implying any particular stocks. Instead it is my attempt to provide the novice investor with some basic tools designed to allow him/her to develop his/her own strategies and stocks choices, it is also my attempt to give an initial picture from which the varying market strategies originate.

In all fairness to the readers of this paper and especially the novice, I feel it important to point out that this paper is by no means complete for two reasons. First, I have only recently developed an interest in the stock market myself. Secondly, because of the dynamic thrust with which the economy/ individual business, and the stock market works, the last word on stock market evaluations has yet to come in. Nevertheless, I consider a basic understanding of the market's dynamics essential in order that a new investor have sane measure of control over his/her investment fate.
