Stocks, or equities, are issued by companies and represent proportionate ownership interest in those companies. Owning a share of stock represents a small piece of ownership in that company. When you own stock in a company, you can potentially benefit from the dividends that are issued by the company, and/or the stock price of the company if it goes higher. Conversely, when the performance of the company goes down, you may receive lower dividends or the price of the stock may decrease.
Why Invest in Stocks?
Stocks usually have higher short-term risk than bonds. Historically, equity markets have tended to move both up and down in a more dramatic manner on a day-to-day basis than traditional fixed income instruments. However, equities have historically produced the highest returns relative to other investment classes.* An investment portfolio containing a mix of stocks, bonds and cash is one way to diversify your investments and plan for your future goals.
