Bonds: [Insert James Bond Joke Here]
We offer so many different types of bonds, which are contracts that are similar to loans. You give money under a contract that after a certain set amount of time, you will be paid back in full with interest.
Risk Level from Low Risk to High Risk
- Treasury Bonds: U.S. government bond with a maturity of ten years or more.
- Treasury Notes: U.S. government bond with a maturity between one to ten years.
- Treasury Bills: U.S. government bond with a maturity of one year or less.
- Municipal Bonds: Given by local or state government that is tax-free. Medium risk as some smaller states are not able to pay them back in full after the maturity date.
- Corporate Bonds: Bonds issued by companies to finance themselves. You loan your money to them that they have to pay back.
- Junk Bonds: High risk level as they are a lot like stocks. These bonds come from corporations. Can have a large yield due the prices of these bonds changing like stocks in the market.
Stocks are where you, the shareholder, buys a part of the corporation, meaning you own part of their profit. The value of these stocks and be traded or sold as price rise and fall in the stock market.
- Penny Stocks: Highest risk for small increase that add up in large amount, but you have to risk a large amount to get anything worth your time.
- Common Stock: Higher risk, if the company can't pay their stockholders, common stocks are set for last until the preferred stocks a filled. However, you get voting input.
- Preferred Stock: Lower risk, as this is preferred over the common stock and it paid first. This will be a steadier flow. However, you lose voting input.
Market Mutual Fund and Certificate of Deposit
These two are together due to their similar low risk level.
- Market Mutual Fund: Form of mutual fund where money is put into a money pool that is professional invested into short-term financial assets, like Treasury bills, municipal bonds, large CDs, and corporate bonds.
- Certificates of Deposit: Similar to a bond in having a maturity rate, usually 6 months to five years, that have a set or varied interest rate. However, unlike a bond, the interest gained on goes back into the CD to increase the interest even more. The longer the maturity, the higher the rate.
