Also, blue chips stocks have “Board Lot”, which other public traded companies also have. Board Lot are a minimum number of shares you can buy on those certain stocks. Blue Chip Stocks tend to have lower board lot, since they cost more.

You have successfully bought a blue chip stock now, but don’t stop now, since those couple of share of Jollibee Food Corporation or Banco De Oro will earn you money, it will still small because of the number of shares you own.
Just continue to put an amount monthly, whether is just 1,000 php, then continue to buy blue chips stock you want to own. By, doing this, you’re building a momentum and also increases your wealth faster than bank.
There’s a saying that “Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket “
By owning different Blue Chips stocks, you are guaranteed that the risk of losing in the stock market is distributed evenly. Since, we don’t know what sector of business will be hit by the next financial crisis.
By doing diversification, you can sleep at night tightly without thinking about the stock market, whether it fall or go up. Also, diversification is your shield for any market turbulence, since most of the financial crisis is identified when damage is already done.
