      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 5. Reasons for Investing
      • Investing is an important part of personal financial management.
      • An investment program should begin with an emergency fund.
      • An emergency fund is a certain amount of money that can be obtained quickly in case of immediate need.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 6. Other Reasons to Invest
      • To supplement earned income
      • To make a profit
      • To minimize tax burdens now and in the future
      • To provide income for retirement
      • To stay ahead of inflation
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 7. Investing Helps Beat Inflation
      • Inflation is a rise in the general level of prices.
      • Inflation reduces purchasing power over time.
        • As prices rise, it takes more money to buy the same goods and services.
      • Investors seek investments that will grow faster than the inflation rate.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 8.
      • At retirement, people need to have more income than social security or retirement benefits will provide.
      • The chief difference among investments is how fast growth occurs.
      • The greatest opportunity for growth is an investment in common stock.
      • One of the safest investments, such as a certificate of deposit, provides a predictable but limited growth potential.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 9. Rule of 72
      • The Rule of 72 is a technique for estimating the number of years required to double your money at a given rate of return.
        • Divide the percentage rate of return into 72 to estimate how long it will take to double your money.
        • For example, if an investment is yielding an average of 6 percent, it will take 12 years to double your money (72 ÷ 6).
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 10. Investing Increases Wealth
      • Financial success grows from the assets that you build up over time.
      • Investing helps you accumulate wealth faster than if you simply saved your excess cash in a savings account.
      • When you invest in stocks and bonds, you are participating in helping businesses make and sell new products and services.
      • You will be rewarded with dividends and interest.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 11. Investing Is Fun and Challenging
      • Investors make choices and hope to pick winners.
      • Once you gain experience, you can have fun choosing investments, buying and selling when the time is right, and using your knowledge to plan for your financial security.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 12. Risk and Return
      • Risk in an investment means a measure of uncertainty about the outcome.
      • Safety in an investment means minimal risk of loss.
      • One way to minimize risk is through diversification.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 13. Diversification
      • Diversification is the spreading of risk among many types of investments.
      • Diversification reduces overall risk because not all of your choices will perform poorly at the same time.
      • If one choice does not do well, the others will likely make up some or all of the loss.
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 14. Types of Risk
      • Short-Term and Long-Term Risk
        • Short-term are less risky than long-term
      • Inflation and Interest Rate Risk
        • Inflation makes your fixed-rate investments worth less because they are “locked in” at lower rates of interest
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 15. Types of Risk
      • Political Risk
        • Government actions that affect business conditions.
        • Examples: increased taxes; environmental regulations
      • Market Risk
        • Caused by business declines, sudden national or world events or interest rate fluctuations
      SLIDE Chapter 11
    • 16. Investment Strategies
      • Many individuals never start an investment program because they think they don’t have enough money.
      • But even small sums of money grow over time.
      • To achieve financial security, start investing as soon as you can and continue to invest over your lifetime.
