    Step 2 - Choose the shares you want to buy 

    Preferably buy the shares of companies you understand.

    If you don't invest in a company you understand, it is akin to gambling just with less excitement. 

    If you understand banking buy banks, if you understand farming buy agriculture shares e.t.c.
