[VIDEO] When should you buy US shares?

With US markets at near all-time highs, one can't help but ask: when is the right time to buy US shares? In this video we have lifted an excerpt from one of the panel shows that we film and send to Rivkin members each week whereby Scott Schuberg, CEO, and Oliver Gordon, Global Investment Director, answer what the pitfalls of buying US shares are – which prompts a few questions you may need answered before making this decision: 

  1. Are you buying for income and therefore have you considered the implications of withholding tax?
  2. Will you be exposed to changes in the strength or weakness of the US dollar?
  3. Should you use fully-paid shares or CFDs?
This show addresses these questions and should give you a good base of information from which to begin your journey of buying US shares.

Rivkin provides general advice and dealing services on securities, derivatives and superannuation (SMSF). Rivkin also provide SMSF administration and accounting services. Rivkin does not provide advice that takes into account your, or anybody else's, investment objectives, financial situation or needs. We strongly suggest that you consult an independent, licenced financial advisor before acting upon any information contained on this website. Investing in and trading securities (such as shares listed on the ASX) and/or derivatives (such as Contracts for Difference or 'CFDs') carry financial risks. CFDs carry with them various additional risks that differ from more simple securities such as fully-paid company shares. Some of these risks include not owning the underlying instrument from which a price is being derived, settling trades 'over the counter' with a financial institution rather than on a stock exchange, and using leverage to gain access to trades that may have a higher face value than your initial deposit. This risk of leverage means that it is possible to lose more than your initial investment. Our aim is to create more life choices for our clients, which means improving the wealth of clients throughout many market cycles by nurturing a relationship spanning many years. If you are not comfortable with your understanding of the risks involved before using a Rivkin product and service, please contact our office to seek further information or a Product Disclosure Statement, or make an appointment to sit with one of our friendly financial experts.
