    I have been investing in direct stocks for 5 years. So I have some experience but am by no means an expert. Making money in stocks is not easy. It takes a lot of research and some trial and error to learn to do it well. I take a pretty conservative approach and only invest in large-cap stocks (the biggest companies on the market).
