  24. Financial Markets • When a saver, or investor, makes a purchase on the financial market they gain a financial asset • AKA securities, these are claims on a borrower’s repayments and potential interest • Most investors will not meet borrowers, they will move through an intermediary • These are companies and institutions that offer financial products

  25. Diversify Your Bonds! • Dealing with intermediaries offers 3 advantages: • Sharing of risk • institutions can diversify, or spread, an investors money out into multiple investments to reduce risk • Access to information • Managers and companies provide portfolios and prospectuses that explain companies’ profits, losses, products, etc. • Liquidity • Banks can offer a guaranteed return, or money back above what was invested—something more secure than giving money to a friend

  26. Investing • Investing generally refers to the use of resources or assets to earn income or profit in the future • There are many vehicles, or instruments, for investment such as property, stocks or bonds, savings, etc. • Investing happens over the short or long term • Investors look for “return” or the ratio of money gained to lost when searching for or evaluating opportunities

  27. Time to Stock Up! • Stock is a claim on part of a company’s earnings as ownership • They are sold in shares, or portions (AKA equities) • Owning stock yields a profit 2 ways: • Dividends—a portion of a company’s profits paid to investors during the year • Capital gains—to sell a stock for more than the price for which it was purchased

  28. How Do I Buy Stock? • Stock is purchased on a stock exchange • a financial market • An individual opens an an account with a brokerage firm and can purchase stock online • Those trades are executed on the “floor” of a physical market • NYSE is America’s oldest and largest and located on Wall Street, NYC

Trading • Markets generally fluctuate constantly throughout a year or even a day • When stock prices steadily rise it is called a bull market;steady fall is a bear market • These prices are listed on many different indices: • NASDAQ—favors tech companies • S&P 500—tracks 500 companies (more diverse) • DJIA—30 largest American companies (Dow)

  30. Financial Assets—Bonds • Another common asset is a bond—an IOU • Investors loan money to a corporation or government and are repaid, with interest, over a period of time • When full payment is due back to the investor, the bond has matured • How much the bond would pay if held to maturity is its yield

  31. Markets—Where’s the Money? • These and other complex financial products are traded on financial markets • Capital Markets offer lending for over a year • Money Markets offer lending for less than year • Primary markets allow on the original buyer to redeem payment • Secondary markets allow the asset to be resold
