How to Invest in Popular Stocks

If you want to grow your money by investing in popular companies like Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Nvidia, and Shopify, you may think you need to have a lot of money and investing experience to get started. Au contraire! 

The truth is, you can easily gain access to pricey big-name stocks — and skip the research required to do it right — by investing in exchange-traded funds (aka ETFs) through our fully managed investment account. And you can start with as little as $1.

Our investment approach is personalized to you, and we fully manage your investments. You can adjust them or go with our recommendations. The choice is yours. Learn more about how we make it easy to grow your funds in the stock market here.

Investing in Big Name Stocks Through ETFs

Investing in ETFs with MoneyLion is a great way to add exposure to the companies you know and like. Even with just $10 or $20, you can be invested in a number of ETFs through fractional shares, giving you exposure to hundreds of companies across your portfolio. You can even set up Auto Investments to effortlessly build your account little by little.

Don’t Bet the Farm on a Single Stock

As a reminder, going all-in on a single company or even sector (e.g., technology) is not the best strategy for investing wisely. What if you put all your money into Tesla stock, and then Elon Musk fires off a controversial tweet that sends shares plummeting? You’d be out of luck (and money). 

Diversification across companies, sectors, and regions is a safer way to build wealth long term, and investing in a managed portfolio of ETFs is a great way to achieve this diversification. When you’re diversified, you can take advantage of Tesla’s success, for example, while remaining cushioned against losses thanks to exposure to many other stocks and bonds in your overall portfolio. 

Diversify While Investing In Your Favorite Stocks

With MoneyLion’s approach, you get a core risk-based portfolio of ETFs aligned to your risk preferences and goals. Then you can adjust your portfolio to be more or less aggressive by raising or lowering your exposure to stocks (versus bonds) like the ones listed above. 

While stocks are known for offering greater return potential than bonds, that comes with greater risk too. We got you! We’ll help you take advantage of opportunities to grow your money through investing in ETFs with underlying exposures to stocks you love like Amazon and Microsoft, while also keeping you diversified across a variety of investments, asset classes, and regions to help smooth out your investing journey and try to limit volatility.
