Stocks show ownership in a corporation. When you purchase stock you are issued certificates according to the number of shares bought. A mutual fund is where many people pool their money with a fund manager and the manager invests their money in various investments. Those investments may include stocks, bonds or other types of investments. Bonds may be issued by municipalities or corporations to raise money. These are usually paid at a fixed rate of interest. It is similar to going to a bank for a loan except that the bonds are usually in smaller increments such as $1,000. A bond issue may involve many millions of dollars in small increments. These bonds have a fixed maturity date. You could compare it to a certificate of deposit at your local bank. They are related in that they are various ways to invest money and to raise funds.

William asks…

Wanting to invest a couple hundred dollars a month in stocks/bonds,should I go to a pro or etrade?

Should I go to a investment professional(I forgot what they are called, the ones that you don’t have to have like 10,000. Thr ones that you can invest only a could hundred a month with) or should I use etrade? I heard etrade has a start up cost and stuff… True? Please help!:-)

financi4 answers:

Neither. Stick with index-based mutual funds until you learn more about investing. Once you learn more, try your hand at other mutual funds. Investing in stocks will cost you dearly with trade commissions.

Read “Investing for Dummies” or any of the dozens of self-help books written for novice investors. Good luck.
