Stocks are securities that give you ownership in a corporation, offering greater potential return when a company does well through capital appreciation and dividend payments, but greater potential risk as well. Stocks offer a wide variety of investment options, including common and preferred shares.
"Stocks offer investors the greatest potential for growth over the long term. The opportunity cost for investing in stocks is “volatility” (ups and downs in the market). Successful investors need to maintain the emotional strength to continue to own stocks during any type of market ensuring their decision making process does not involve the 2 most dangerous emotions of fear and greed."
“Bonds provide balance to portfolios and can reduce volatility, provide diversification from equities and preserve capital.”
Companies and governments issue bonds with a set repayment date to the public to raise capital to fund their projects. Bonds may offer lower risk than stocks, but usually a lower return as well.
An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is a security that is listed and traded on a stock exchange, similar to a stock. ETFs are made up of a mixture of securities such as stocks, bonds, commodities, etc and typically track the performance of an index or a certain market area.
“ETFs are a cost effective, highly liquid and diversified component of a well-balanced investment plan. A professionally managed solution comprised of a diverse range of ETFs will include a wide range of different asset classes, geographical locations, industries and sectors, which helps to alleviate unsystematic risk related to an individual company, sector or region.”
