Objective 2Describe How Safety, Risk, Income, Growth, and Liquidity Affect Your Investment Decisions

Factors Affecting the Choice of Investments

  • Safety and risk

    • Risk = uncertainty about the outcome

    • Investment Safety = minimal risk of loss

    • Risk-Return Trade-Off

      • The potential return on any investment should be directly related to the risk the investor assumes

    • Speculative investments are high risk, made by those seeking a large profit in a short time

11-9


Components of the risk factor l.jpg

Components of the Risk Factor

  • Inflation Risk during periods of high inflation, your investment return may not keep pace with inflation; lose purchasing power

  • Interest Rate Risk the value of bonds or preferred stock may increase or decrease with changes in interest rates

  • Business Failure Risk affects stocks and corporate bonds(when business is not profitable)

  • Market Risk the risk of being in the market versus in a risk-free asset (stocks follow market cycle)

11-10


Investment income growth and liquidity l.jpg

Investment Income, Growth and Liquidity

  • Investment Income

    • A predictable source of income (dividends or interest)

    • Other choices:

      • Municipal and corporate bonds

      • Preferred stock

      • Utility stocks

      • Selected common stocks

      • Selected Mutual funds

      • Rental real estate

11-11


Investment income growth and liquidity12 l.jpg

Investment Income, Growth and Liquidity

  • Investment Liquidity

    • 2 Dimensions:

      • Ability to buy or sell investment quickly

      • Without substantially affecting the investment’s value
