Buying Shares as Gifts.

Given the recent turbulence in the stock markets, buying shares may seem a risky business. However, despite the short term volatility of the stock markets, buying shares provides an excellent opportunity to increase your long term capital. Historically, investing in the stock market has given greater returns than other investments such as saving in a bank.

Furthermore, the stock market gives you the potential to pick out shares which can easily outperform the market. For example, investing in a blue chip company like Disney shares, would have given an increase of 13% in the past 12 months. (despite the recent setbacks associated with general falling share prices.)

Which ever stock you decide to buy the best attitude is to see it as a long term investment. Therefore, even if there are temporary setbacks in the value of the share you can remain detached. For example, the disney stock we used as an example, has fallen by 5% in the past 2 months. But, this kind of short term volatility is inevitable. The successful investor will not worry about short term fluctuations.

Share in a frame are a company who offer an opportunity to buy a framed share certificate. It would make a good long term investment / present. As a gift there will be no disappointment of gaining an unwanted present. It also enables the chance to significantly increase the value of the gift over the long term.
