Newbie here, as this is my first post, please be gentle. I am really interested in share trading but just don't know where to start. I understand charts to a degree. But other than trends etc how does one find a stock to buy? What makes a stock stand out amongst the rest? There is so many out there what makes for a good 20 for my watch list? I understand that good and bad stocks change all the time but what makes one better than the other. Thanks in advance.
