Pay Yourself First
[The Richest Man in Babylon]
The"The Richest Man in Babylon" concept has been revealed in a book, written by George S. Clason, which is readily available on the internet.  This concept begins the investment journey for those who want to exercise prudence and take on the personal responsibility to ensure that one is postured to achieve fruitful investment goals, by establishing a plan that can actualize these investment goals.  The concept consists of paying yourself first [for investment utilization], before any other bills are paid or recreational items/activities purchased; thus, ensuring that one always has money to invest upfront, the first priority.
By paying yourself, there will always be money available to invest and save until retirement; unlike, others who tend to wait until all of the expenses have been paid and come to find out there is no money to invest.  That is why this simple concept, easier said then done, has become the cornerstone for all those who hope to reserve a nest egg for retirement.  Now, more than ever, because of information access and technology, and the objective, tangible, measurable, and systematic process invented by the SpireStock's founder, one can instantly enhance that investment journey.  Unprecedented in approach and methodology, all that is required from the individual investor is a time frame of at least seven years to invest (SpireStocks suggests this time frame to enable the investor to utilize direct stock investing for the equity asset allocated portfolio, which typically accounts for 70-90% of an individual investor, who is investing for the long term). See the understanding the importance of matching time frame with investing goals.
Combating Inflation
The American Heritage Dictionary defines inflation as:
A persistent increase in the level of consumer prices or a persistent decline in the purchasing power of money caused by an increase in available currency and credit beyond the proportion of available goods and services.
The implication of inflation [ increase in prices and/or decline in the purchasing power of money] is that one must NOT save money (primarily in savings account for investment purposes) or have their money tied up in investment instruments that are equal to or less than the inflation rate; otherwise, they are actually LOSING money. Yes, if you have been using a savings account as a means to "investing" your money, you have actually lost money, whenever the savings rate is less than the inflationary rate.  When combined with the prudent investment principles of understanding the importance of matching time with the correct investment instrument and direct stock investing, the conclusion is actually quite simple.  The simplicity of the conclusion is that if the investor has any chance of not losing money or transcending the equivalent of treading water, they must ensure that they are investing in an instrument that, year in and year out, always has the consistent propensity to overcome the devastating inflation concept.  Thus, if an individual is investing for the long term (defined on SpireStocks as at least seven years) the best means to hedge inflation is by direct stock investing, which is most apt to ensure that inflation does not eat away at your plans to be financially sound, toward your retirement years.
The conclusion is that if an investor ever wants to posture themselves against the drag of inflation, they really DON'T have a choice, they must invest directly in stocks for the long term.  SpireStocks provides you that opportunity and turn key approach to control and manage your own equity portfolio via direct stock investing including automated triggers to sell or buy more stocks of a current holding.
Matching Time Frame with Correct Instrument
In the Long Term, Equities Outperform Other Investment Alternatives/Methods

Understanding the Importance of Matching the Time Frame with the Correct Investment Instrument

The time frame concept applied toward investing is paramount. Ask any financial expert, and they will proclaim, along with paying yourself first, the importance of investing early on in one's life.  SpireStocks strives for at least seven years, since, by obtaining an annualized return of ten to eleven percent, over that seven year period, one can double their money.  The SpireStock's annualized return, utilizing the unparalelled AITP™ process, invented by the founder of SpireStocks, enables the individual investor direct insight into not only the suggested transactions, but also includes the necessary triggers to buy more stocks AND sell stocks.
By providing the necessary quantity of stocks to buy, via an objective, systematic process, SpireStocks empowers the individual investor to actualize the ability to manage one's own investment equity portfolio, while maintaining individualized control of the suggested transactions via a separate, independent, on-line brokerage account; thus, eliminating the need for other management costs that erode the percent gain returns.  Moreover, the turn key approach and SpireStock's methodology , unprecedented to date, only requires the amount of money the individual investor desires to invest.  After providing this one input, SpireStocks objectively and systematically suggests which stocks to buy or sell in specific quantity, while automatically providing the necessary triggers to buy and sell shares to realize the individual investment goals. See performance history and facts, as compared to the market indices, to further understand the success of SpireStocks.
Compounding Returns
This is a crucial concept in understanding the role time plays in achieving your financial goals.  In addition, the percent annualized gain is absolutely critical in conjunction with the investing time period.  In attempt to illustrate this point, take the following scenario:

If you were to invest a penny and you received compounded interest of 100% every DAY, how long would it take you to become a millionaire? On the surface, it seems like it would take a long time, but let's see if we can understand this compounding concept.

The formula is as follows:  initial investment amount * (1+interest in decimal)^(time period)

Thus, we have a penny, 100% gain every day, i.e. your money doubles every day.

1 cent * (1+1)^number days.
To obtain dollars you would divide cents by 100. Here is the chart
2.56 1310.72
Asset Allocation
Asset allocation, allocates your assets across numerous investment instruments: real estate, bonds, mutual funds, direct stocks, precious metals, etc.  An investor should definitely have their investment portfolio both diversified and asset allocated, but commensurate with the time period available before distribution, i.e. the time frame/risk has to be assessed along with the two concepts of diversification and asset allocation.  SpireStock suggests that the individual investor, who is investing for the long term (at least seven years), should have 70-90% of their investment portfolio in direct stock investing.
Direct Stock Investing
Successful Investing, written by the Babson-United Investment Advisors Staff
On page 27, the book's fourth edition, "Successful Investing", written by the staff of Babson-United Investment Advisors, Inc., states under the title, "Why You Can't Ignore Stocks", "for the investment in common stocks is about the only way most savers can hope to offset inflation."
On the following page it continues under the title, "Stock Values Go Up and Up", "Another thing folks tend to overlook is that the intrinsic values behind good stocks go up along with dividends.  As the economy of this country grows, so do the sales of earnings of our leading corporations."

The diversification concept attempts to avoid having the majority of your portfolio invested in one/few investment equities/sectors.  The rationale is to preclude having your entire portfolio taking a severe set-back due to the decline in that one/few areas, i.e. all your eggs in one basket. 
The greater the diversification (assets spread across numerous instruments and particular equities) the less likely your portfolio will be postured to take advantage of those equities/sectors that have a great increase/rise in value. Given that, if your equities were all in the one sector that declined then your portfolio would be too risky; thus, there is balance, but to what degree is prudent and what is too cautious.  Therefore, diversification can not be assessed independent of risk, specifically the time frame for which the individual investor has until they want access to the money being invested. 
This is a crucial concept as well. A portfolio can be "perfectly" diversified, but if the return is in the single digits and the individual investor has 20 years to retirement, they are not being prudent, since the return on the portfolio will not be commensurate with the potential of the time line available. Hence, a portfolio can be too diversified, as evidenced by numerous mutual funds, that year in and year out have single digit/negative returns.  Thus, like most situations, there is a give and take, the more diversification the less risk, but on the other side of the coin, the more diversification, the less apt the portfolio will be postured to take great advantage of significant rises with particular equities/sectors.
The evidence is clear, the best instrument for the long term investor is direct stock investing. There hasn't been one mutual fund that has outperformed direct stock investing in a 15-20 year time period, which is the reason SpireStocks suggests direct stock investing and has developed the turn key approach for the individual investor who has at least seven years for investment purposes.  The number of SpireStocks tends to provide the necessary diversification commensurate with the potential for a greater return, as demonstrated by the comparison of SpireStocks performance to the major market indices.
To better understand this concept, take a mutual fund and its top ten holdings and compare the entire mutual funds return to the top ten stock holdings separately and observe the substantial difference in returns/NAV between the mutual fund and the top ten equities during a 52 week time period.  At this time, several investors believe the concept of diversification is overrated and far too many investors worry about being too diversified versus the potential for return.
At SpireStocks, for the individual investor who is investing for the long term (defined as at least 7 years to retire), direct stock investing should comprise from 70-90% of the investment portfolio, specifically owning individual stocks.  Since there is no other investment vehicle that can beat direct stock investing across the board for the long term, this is why SpireStocks suggests direct stock investing and provides you the actual stocks and quantity to include when to buy and sell.

Dollar Cost Averaging
Although, SpireStocks encourages all to invest and understand dollar cost averaging, SpireStocks implements the concept of dollar cost averaging, when the transactions are exercised, not just with a fixed amount of monetary allocation within a pre-designated investing period.
Effectiveness:  Buy Low & Sell High
SpireStock's is keenly aware of this concept; thus, provides an unprecedented means of objectively and systematically having automated triggers, that suggest when to buy more stock shares, when the price dips, and having an automated trigger when to sell.  This approach and methodology does not seek to try to time the market or to speculate when the stock, at any given time, will be at its peak. Time and time again, history has indicated that it is extremely difficult to perfectly time the market.
Although most profess the buy and hold mantra, for the long term investor, there have been numerous examples of the company of the past that has had stellar results and perhaps even sustained for a period of time, but that have lost market share, since peak performance of the past; therefore, buying and holding is far from optimal, on the contrary.  By buying more shares when the price temporarily dips (SpireStocks has limits to how far the stock can dip), and selling at an appreciable gain, in the long term, will always outperform the buy and hold mantra (presumes that the stock doesn't dive down and stay down forever; a fair presumption with SpireStocks.  Instead, SpireStock's strives for a 19% return, which results in doubling your investment every four years, with a lofty goal of 26%, which doubles one's money every three years. This goal has been achieved by observing and comparing the SpireStock performance to the major market indices.  Those that held on to the stock may have held on too long; thus, not taking advantage of when the stock was performing at or near its peak. At SpireStock's, there is a proven and systematic way of buying more shares when the stock dips temporarily and selling at an extremely noteworthy gain.

Annualized Return
This is a crucial concept in trying to understand the effect that annualized return has over time.  One can have a great return one year and a devastating loss the next; thus, the geometric mean will provide the annualized return, which is also why, annualized return must be utilized in comparing one stock to another.  In attempt to illustrate this point, take the following scenarios:
  1. One individual investor had a percent gain of 55% one year and a 5% gain the next.
  2. Another investor had returns of 34% and 26% during the same year cycle. Who had the better return?

The answer is the second person with an annualized gain (goemetric mean) of 29.94% compared to the first investor with a 27.57% return.

The point is further developed by changing the scenario above; wherein,
  1. The first investor had the 55% gain over a two year period and then 5% the next year compared to the
  2. Second investor who had the 36% gain over the same two year period and 26% gain the next year.

To annualize the return you must add one to the ratio and raise the ratio to the power of (365.25)/(#of days of the time period) and then subtracting the entire entity by 1.

This is a significant difference from the first example and illustrates the importance of comparing returns over different periods by first calculating the annualized returns before comparison.

Therefore, after understanding stock history and performance, one can apply prudent investment principles and the SpireStock's approach and methodology to build a stock portfolio that outperforms the major market indices. Comparing the major market indices, to the SpireStocks performance, validates this claim.  Subscribe now and start that investment journey to ensure that you are postured to combat inflation.
