Investing in AIM Stocks

20 years of the world's most
successful market for small companies.

Understanding what you're looking at when taking AIM

Anyone who is new to buying stocks – and isn’t keen to pay a fund manager to do their investing – will benefit from understanding three useful numbers: price/earnings ratio, dividend yield and price-to-book value.

It is universally agreed that, in order to be successful when entering the markets (especially AIM stocks), you need to do your ‘fundamental analysis’. This is essentially burying your head in company accounts, so being able to pick out these three numbers (and understand what they mean) could help to inform your decisions.

Of course, none of them are perfect, but they are a good starting point and, used in combination, can highlight areas and companies that might be worth further research.
