Stocks and Bonds

Stocks are a riskier investment than bonds, but in exchange for risk, they offer the opportunity for capital appreciation and can potentially boost total return in a portfolio of stocks and bonds*.

When investing in fixed-income securities, such as bonds, in essence you're making a loan in exchange for a promise of receiving interest or dividend payments and the return of your principal at the end of the security's term. Bonds issued by the U.S. government are guaranteed as to the timely payment of principal and interest if held to maturity; other bonds are not guaranteed and carry varying degrees of credit risk.

Why should I buy bonds?

  • May generate regular income

* All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Investors should consider their financial ability to continue purchase through periods of low price levels.

** International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility. Changes in currency exchange rates, differences in accounting and taxation policies and political and economical instability can raise or lower returns.

*** Bonds are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values will decline as interest rates rise and bonds are subject to availability and change in price. Income may be subject to federal alternative minimum tax and state or local taxes.
