Investing in the stock market will always involve some level of risk. Investors often have to determine how much they are willing to risk, and try to project what the potential reward could be. Taking on too much risk may put the average investor out of their comfort zone. Finding that sweet spot for risk appetite may help investors get on the correct path to conquering the markets. As companies continue to report quarterly earnings, investors will be watching which companies post larger than expected surprises. Analysts will also be watching the numbers closely in order to make sense of the results and update estimates accordingly.

Investors might be looking to rebuild the portfolio as we move into the second half of the year. New investors can be tempted to try to maximize returns by owning one specific sector or be exposed to a fairly large single investment. By diversifying the portfolio, investors might be able to protect themselves from a sudden move against the position. Finding the correct portfolio balance is how many investors choose to approach the markets. This may take some time to master, and there may be some bumps along the way. Investors managing their own money may want to make sure that they know exactly what stocks are in the portfolio at all times. Keeping tabs on portfolio performance can also be a good way to make sure that it is weighted properly.

Investors look favorably upon stocks with a large amount of institutional ownership.  These large entities often hire a team of analysts to perform research prior to the group purchasing a company’s stock.  Because of the large research investment made, institutions aren’t quick to sell their position. 

Institutions may also influence the price of a stock after acquiring a position by using TV shows, articles in high-profile newspapers or magazines and presentations at investor conferences to help drive the price higher, increasing the value of the share.

Spotting those names that have been cast aside and not garnering much recent attention might be a good place to start. Putting in a few extra hours of stock research may provide some good options for buying on the next big dip. Of course, nobody can say for sure how long the markets will continue to climb. Being ready for a pullback can help if investors already have some names in mind that they are looking to scoop up when they fall to a certain level. Tracking the technicals and staying up on the fundamentals should help investors hone in on the next wave of stocks to add to the portfolio.
