Investment Risk Management

http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/investment-risk-management

Investment risk management includes diversifying to balance business risk, being wary of overpriced stocks, and not confusing short term goals with long term investing techniques. Picking new winners is always the name of the game but picking them at the best price, diversifying to reduce sector risk, and choosing stocks whose prospects match your long term goals are good ways of managing investment risk.

Business risk is the risk of competition. Effectiveness of management, developing and promoting products, penetrating markets, and doing so in the most cost effective and profitable manner all go into a profitable company. Business risk is also economic risk. Macroeconomic circumstances such as recessions and wars can devastate otherwise thriving businesses. New scientific discoveries or new technologies can likewise create new winners and losers. Diversification helps in managing investment risk. Consumer product companies typically do better during a recession than oil companies. Owning different types of stock in several market sectors will protect you from an isolated market downturn in one sector.
