stocks vs b onds
Stocks vs. Bonds

  • Bonds are debt instruments
    • The investor become a creditor to the company
  • Stocks (securities) are equity instruments
    • The investor becomes a partial owner of the company. Ownership comes with voting rights and a chance to share in any profits of the company
things to know about bonds
Things to Know About Bonds

Issuer- the company or government that is borrowing the money

Investors- people who buy the bonds (lend the money)

Face Value- (par value)it is the amount paid to the holder at maturity

Interest Rate- referred to as the coupon

Fixed rate- bonds are usually fixed rate because the lender knows

ahead of time how much interest they will be receiving

Maturity Date: the date which the issuer must pay back the

amount borrowed

bond example
Bond Example
  • You purchase a bond:
  • face value of $1,000,
  • an interest rate (coupon) of 8%
  • maturity of 10 years
  • This means you'll receive:
  • $80 ($1,000*8%) of interest per year
  • a total of $800 of interest for the 10 years
  • When the bond matures after a decade, you'll get your $1,000 back
municipal bonds
Municipal Bonds
  • Are issued by local governments and their agencies
    • Cities, states, school districts
  • Interest on these bonds are often exempt from federal income tax (possibly state income tax as well)
    • Example: Series EE Savings Bonds from the US government
  • Owner of the stock
  • A share of ownership in a company

Usually a stockholder owns a very small part of a company

how does a stock increase value
How does a stock increase value?

Panera Bread stock was issued on June 10, 1991

The price per share on June 10, 1992 was $13.00

On December 6, 2013 the price per share was $176.63


If I bought 100 shares at $13.00/share, I own a small piece of Panera Bread Co. My stock that day (6/10/91) is valued at $1,300.00.

Panera has grown into a larger company and has made a profit over the years.

If I sell my 100 shares on Dec. 6, 2013, when they are trading for $176.63/share, I will receive $17,663.00 (100 x 176.63).

  • The money an investor makes on a stock is called a return.
    • Capital Gains
    • Dividends

Some stocks also pay a dividend which is a payment made by a corporation to its shareholders, usually as a distribution of profits.


Capital gains are included in income for tax purposes. Long-term capital gains are taxed at a lower rate than short-term capital gains

The money I have made from the sale of my stock is called a capital gain.


A stock splitis a decision by the company's board of directors to increase the number of shares that are outstanding by issuing more shares to current shareholders.

For example, in a 2-for-1 stock split, every  Panera shareholder with one stock is given an additional share. Therefore I would now have 200 shares of Panera stock, but they will be worth half of the current market price
