Stocks and Bonds


Investing in stocks allows you to own shares of publicly held companies.


  • Common shares provide long-term growth potential
  • Possible dividends create extra income
  • Typically outperforms the rate of inflation over the long term
NOTE: Stocks are subject to risks including market risk. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The value of securities will fluctuate and when redeemed, shares may be worth more or less than their original cost.



A bond is a debt in which the authorized issuer owes the holders a debt and, depending on the terms of the bond, is obliged to pay interest and/or repay the principal at a later date, termed maturity. Bonds provide the borrower with external funds to finance long-term investments. Bonds typically have a pre-determined term or maturity date in which the bond is to be redeemed.

NOTE: Market risk, bonds being worth less than the purchase price, is a factor if sold prior to maturity. Guarantees on bonds are based on the claims paying ability of the insurance company, not the FDIC, Federal or state government.
