What you should know before buying NZX stocks
There’s no single winning strategy to finding what experts might call the best performing shares on the NSX, because the most important considerations are your own goals and circumstances. But that shouldn’t discourage you from doing your homework and investing.
Whether you care more about short-term gains or long-term dividend growth, it’s important to know whether a stock is performing well, making a profit, paying dividends or going backwards. Always remember that past performance does not guarantee future results. Investments can go up and down in value.
