If you are looking for competitive returns to help grow your investment for the long-term, Individual Stocks may be a good option. Stocks represent ownership in a publicly traded company. Your investment will rise and fall with the value of the stock price of the company and will carry more risk than money market or bond investments. With proper management, Stocks can provide you long-term growth potential. Stock investing involves risk including loss of principal.
Bonds are issued by companies, governments and municipalities and essentially represent an "IOU" for money loaned to a company. A Bond is a promise to return the money at a set maturity date and pay regular interest payments along the way. They can pay taxable interest or provide tax-free income. Bonds are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values and yields will decline as interest rates rise and bonds are subject to availability and change in price.
A REIT is a corporation whose business is Real Estate. The REIT purchases buildings, or less frequently, the mortgages on buildings. REIT income flows to you and other investors in the form of monthly or quarterly dividends based on rent or mortgage payments from the REIT’s investments. Investing in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) involves special risks such as potential illiquidity and may not be suitable for all investors. There is no assurance that the investment objectives of this program will be attained.
