Now that we’re starting to talk more specifically about choosing shares, there’s some common terms worth learning. These can help you define your own investing style, and better understand the share market.

One of these terms is ‘blue chip’ shares. These are the biggest and best companies on the market, typically leaders in their industries. Because of their size and history of performance, they’re considered less risky, so they can often be great companies for new investors to buy.

At The Motley Fool, we’re big believers in education (obviously!). That’s not just limited to building a video series – we’re constantly on the lookout for useful lessons and learnings to pass to our members.

Below, we’ve linked to some quotes from great investors. Although some of these are a little dated, the principles of investing don’t change much; we think these timeless truths still hold valuable lessons today.

That’s it for this edition of our “Beginners Guide to Investing” series. See you at the next video!

To your wealth, wisdom and happiness,
