Stock market analyst and other researchers always say that 90% of the traders lose money in the stock market. Day trading is really a risky one for you if you are not a pro as they check lots of parameters at once before entering into a trade. So, it is better to avoid day trading if you are not a skilled trader or not relying on the stock market analyst.

Instead of day trading, you can focus on long-term investment or positional trading. Investment for a longer period will always provide you return depending on the stocks. However, positional trading is also a bit risky and still, you can hold it till you are in profit.  I suggest you invest in stocks for a longer period as you will get the dividend and along with that you will enjoy the price appreciation.

If they become rich, then what is the harm to follow their footprints.

So, I have screen 10 best and high dividend paying stocks that help you to succeed in the equity market. All you need is patience to hold them and success in equity market follows you soon. In fact, your investment capital will grow over the years and also you will enjoy the fruits of dividend too.

    Thanks for the great list. Almost all looks like Govt PSU stocks which are around at the same price for many years. That means they pay good dividend but as a stock value wise you may not see much hike right?
