Do you ever feel like you don’t know where to start? Let's tackle two of the most basic investing types you should know: Stocks and Bonds Let’s start with Stocks. When a company needs money to expand or grow their business, they can sell stock to the public. In exchange for that money, the INVESTORS (the people who buy a stock) now “own” a piece of that company. Investors can make money on stocks by buying them when they have a lower value and selling them when they have more value. Investors can also make money by sharing in a regular payout from the company to its shareholders, something that’s also known as DIVIDENDS. Not all companies pay regular dividends, but when they occur, dividends and changes in share price are both part of total return, which is your total gain or loss on an investment. What about Bonds? When you buy a bond, you are actually loaning money to a company, government, or government agency. The money is typically used for things like construction and other projects. During the life of the bond, an investor gets paid interest at steady, predetermined times. Interest is basically the money you are given by the borrower in return for lending them the money. At the end of the loan’s life, the borrower returns the money you initially lent them. You can trade bonds in the market, just like you can trade a stock. Bonds are considered less risky investments than stocks, but they also typically have lower total returns. So what did we learn? A Stock: A share in the ownership of a company A Bond: An interest-earning loan you make to a company or government.

Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Oh My!
 
03:44
Recently, I was visiting my parents at their home and I found a note card in my old room with my CFP study notes. On the note card was details about "calls" and "puts," which are fancy words for trading strategies in the financial world. When I saw the note card I realized how confusing financial lingo can be and got really annoyed. Why? Well, I was annoyed at the fact that so much of the lingo is nonsense that just tries to overcomplicate strategies so people feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by the information. But instead of staying annoyed, I decide to do something about it. It inspired me to make a video describing the basics of stocks, bonds, mutual funds and ETFs. Although you may know the differences between them already, it never hurts to have a review to really understand how they work. I find that once you're educated about investing, you can make informed decisions to start investing for your financial future. So in today's video, I explain the difference between a stock, bond, mutual fund and ETF. Watch the video now, then request your free Discovery Session: https://www.timetrade.com/book/713KH with me so we can talk about which investments are appropriate for you given your financial situation and life goals.

The Difference Between Bonds vs Stocks vs Mutual Funds
 
02:14
How are bonds, stocks, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds different? In this video, Pure Financial's Director of Research, Brian Perry, CFP®, CFA® explains. Read the full blog: http://bit.ly/StocksBondsMutFunds Transcript: So, today we're going to talk about stocks, and bonds, and mutual funds. And stocks and bonds are investment asset classes. Stocks enter into a portfolio in order to provide growth, but they are volatile - they move up and down. Over the long term, they should provide higher returns than bonds. Bonds in a portfolio are there to generate income, but also stability and diversification. Oftentimes, when stocks go higher, bonds fall. And so the idea of combining stocks and bonds in a diversified portfolio makes sense for the vast majority of investors. Mutual funds, on the other hand, are not an asset class. They're an investment vehicle. And so, when it comes time to decide how to invest in the stocks and bonds you're going to own, you have three choices: you can buy individual securities, you can buy mutual funds, or you can buy ETFs - Exchange Traded Funds. The choice varies, depending on what you're trying to accomplish and the asset class, but broadly speaking, individual securities are where you go out and you buy Microsoft or GE, or you buy a municipal bond, and you own just that. There are no ongoing fees associated, but you are responsible for doing your own research and monitoring. And it can be hard to be fully diversified. Mutual funds and ETFs provide professional management diversification. And although there are ongoing costs, with many mutual funds, the costs can be quite low. As with most aspects of investing, the choice of a mutual fund, an individual security, or an ETF isn't a straightforward or simple one, and the choice is going to ultimately depend on you, the investor. But it's definitely worth considering because the vehicle you use is going to impact your investment returns. Importantly, and in conclusion, if you buy a mutual fund, an individual of security, or an ETF, you still own stocks or bonds. So when you're working on your asset classes, and your asset allocation, don't worry so much about what vehicles you've used. Think of it as "how many stocks do I own" and "how many bonds do I own." And then a separate, discrete decision will be, individual securities, mutual funds or ETFs. For more on stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, look at the blog on PureFinancial.com.

Does index fund investing work for bonds?
 
03:47
Index fund investing is often most associated with stocks, however the same passive strategy can also be used for bond investing. Scott Donaldson of Vanguard Investment Strategy Group says index fund investing can be equally as effective for bonds. **For more information about Vanguard funds, including at-cost services, visit vanguard.com or call 877-662-7447 to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing.** All investing is subject to risk, including possible loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments. © 2014 The Vanguard Group, Inc.

INVESTING IN A STOCK, MUTUAL FUND OR A BOND IS RISKY... -ROBERT KIYOSAKI
 
02:01
Most financial experts want you to believe that investing is risky. Well, the Rich Dad company says, "Investing is not risky." What is risky is not improving your financial intelligence or your financial IQ, having no financial education. So let me give you a few examples. There's two basic types of investors. One is fundamental. I would say Warren Buffett is a fundamental investor. That's income, expense, assets, liabilities. Most people, since they can't read a financial statement, really don't understand the fundamentals. That's what the CASHFLOW game teaches people, is how to be fundamentals. We all know markets go up and markets go down. Markets go up and markets go down. So the reason the average person thinks investing is risky is because prices go up and then they lose everything. The reason investing is risky is that to be a professional investor, whether it's fundamental or technical, is you have to use insurance. Look, Ladies and Gentlemen, you do not have a car without insurance. You don't buy a house without insurance. Yet the average person putting their money in a stock or a mutual fund or a bond, they don't have insurance. That's what's risky. If you're going to be a professional investor, you have to understand markets up and down. That's not news. But when markets are up, you buy an insurance policy here in case it goes down. For some people, that's called a put. Or you can put a stop. In real estate, my banker requires me to have disaster insurance. So a point here, Ladies and Gentlemen, is this: is that investing is not risky. It's taking advice from people who don't know what they're talking about a lot of the time, or people who don't sell you the insurance. That's risky. To put yourself in a stock or a mutual fund without insurance is absolutely risky. It's no more sense than buying a car and not having insurance. So Ladies and Gentlemen, investing is not risky. Being financially not sophisticated, not educated, and taking advice from people who also believe investing is risky is the riskiest part of investing. And that's what makes the Rich Dad company different. Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad—the #1 personal finance book of all time—Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes that each of us has the power to makes changes in our lives, take control of our financial future, and live the rich life we deserve. With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned an international reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage and has become a passionate and outspoken advocate for financial education. Robert’s most recent books—Why the Rich Are Getting Richer and More Important Than Money—were published in the spring of this year to mark the 20th Anniversary of the 1997 release of Rich Dad Poor Dad. That book and its messages, viewed around the world as a classic in the personal finance arena, have stood the test of time. Why the Rich Are Getting Richer, released two decades after the international blockbuster bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad, is positioned as Rich Dad Graduate School. Robert has also co-authored two books with Donald Trump, prior to his successful bid for the White House and election as President of the United States. http://www.richdad.com Facebook: @RobertKiyosaki https://www.facebook.com/RobertKiyosaki/ Twitter: @TheRealKiyosaki https://twitter.com/theRealKiyosaki Instagram: @TheRealKiyosaki https://www.instagram.com/therealkiyosaki/

The current yield has gone up and if you want protection from declining yields and low inflation, you might want to look at bonds. This does not mean a financial crisis will come but a proper portfolio strategy should hold bonds and a 2.4% yield is attractive. Nobody knows whether the FED will be able to deliver on its projected policy measures but being prepared to anything is always good. Perhaps a Treasury bond or ETF will be the best investment or stock in 2018. I discuss why a bond ETF might be a good hedge for your portfolio by analyzing macroeconomic factors affecting the American economy,

Individual bonds vs. bond funds
 
03:52
Which is a better investment? There are pros and cons to each, but Vanguard bond experts Daniel Wallick and Chris Alwine emphasize that a municipal bond fund provides diversification and can cushion against risk. All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Credit-quality ratings are obtained from Standard & Poor's and are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). *For more information about Vanguard funds, visit vanguard.com or call 877-662-7447 to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing.* Although the income from a municipal bond fund is exempt from federal tax, you may owe taxes on any capital gains realized through the fund's trading or through your own redemption of shares. For some investors, a portion of the fund's income may be subject to state and local taxes, as well as to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax. This webcast is for educational purposes only.

Is It a Bad Idea to Buy Bonds When Interest Rates Are Going Up?
 
06:12
http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 Here’s something I bet you didn't know. The U.S. stock market, the size of the U.S. stock market is about $30 trillion. If you added up the value of all publicly traded stocks in the U.S., the market value of all those companies would come up to around $30 trillion, but what about bonds? Bonds are hardly ever mentioned or talked about in the financial media, but I bet you might be surprised to discover that the U.S. bond market is actually much bigger than the stock market. The U.S. bond market is estimated to be $40 trillion or more. That's right, the bond market is actually larger than the stock market and yet the financial media has almost all their attention and therefore our attention on the stock market. So what about bonds? Should you be buying bonds when interest rates are going up? You may have heard that when interest rates go up, bond values go down, which is true. Think of a seesaw or a teeter totter, the end that goes up is interest rates and the end that goes down is the underlying value of the bond. Bonds by the way are nothing more than a loan to a company or government or government agency. Typically bonds pay their interest twice a year, every six months, and when the loan comes due, they have a maturity date which could range anywhere from 90 days to 30 years, when you get your money back. If you look at long term returns of investments, let's say 15 year timeframe or longer, then it's no secret stocks have outperformed bonds by a large, large margin; so if stocks do better than bonds over the long term why not just have all of your money in stocks? Well the problem is while stocks tend to deliver nice, long term returns, but the short term oh, that could be a whole other story. Stocks on the short term can be extremely volatile. Just look what happened in the financial crisis of 2008. The S&P 500, the 500 largest publically traded companies in America, lost about 38% in value. So $100,000 in the S&P 500 at the end of 2008 was now worth $62,000. Ouch! That's a lot of short term volatility which tends to make you and I uncomfortable, to say the least. So how do we dampen or minimize that volatility? Imagine you have a sailboat and you have entered it into a race. One way to make your sailboat go faster is to make it lighter. But the lighter the sailboat, the more likely it is to capsize with a gust of wind. To prevent that you add weight or ballast to the sailboat. That slows the speed of the boat down but it reduces the odds of the boat capsizing and sinking. This is how you should think of bonds in your overall investment strategy. They are going to slow down the overall growth of your investment accounts but they are there to keep you from capsizing, to keep you from sinking during short-term periods of market volatility. So the answer to the question should you buy bonds, even when interest rates are going up, as a long term investor, the answer is a qualified yes, and here's what I mean by that. If you buy individual bonds and hold the bond until it matures or is called away early by the issuer then you'll receive the interest and get all your money back when the bond matures. The value of the bond can and will fluctuate while you own it, but it doesn't affect you if you hold it to maturity because then you get all your money back. This is why it's important to own individual bonds, especially in a rising interest rate environment, you don't lose money if you hold the bond until maturity. Why not just use a bond mutual fund? The problem with a bond mutual fund is it doesn't have a maturity date. People are constantly adding or withholding money from the mutual fund itself and typically at the wrong time. In a rising interest rate market, a lot of people in bond mutual funds take some or all of their money out of the mutual fund which forces the mutual fund manager to sell bonds even if they didn't want to. They have to generate the money to pay back the investors and that could drive the value or the price of bonds down even further. Ideally, you want to use individual bonds so you know for sure you get your money back when the bond matures. If you have a small account, and I would say a small account would be $200,000 or less, then you may not have enough money to properly diversify into individual bonds and you may have to still use bond mutual funds and if that's the case in a rising interest rate market you want to focus on short term bond funds or floating rate bond funds. Buying individual bonds as part of your investment strategy will help you move one step closer to experiencing your version of an incredible retirement doing what you want, when you want.
