Common stocks are ownership shares in a company. Investors who purchase them may earn dividends as their part of the profit and hope that the price of the stock goes up so their shares will be worth more. At the same time, investors are taking a risk that the price does not go down.
A stock’s value can change at any moment and is dependent upon a variety of influences such as market conditions, investor perceptions and numerous other issues.
Investors should be aware that there are risks inherent in all investments, such as fluctuations in investment principal.
