What are ETFs?Get the skinny on exchange-traded funds (ETFs). ETFs offer the opportunity to customize your portfolio, act quickly on market changes, and save on fees.
Trading your own stocks and exchange-traded funds, also called ETFs, allows you to customize your portfolio. Act quickly on market changes and save on fees. Getting started is easy, but there's a lot to learn. Let's address some common questions, and don't worry, you aren't the only one who asked. Number one, what's the difference between stocks and ETFs? Stocks represent a share of ownership in an individual company. ETFs, on the other hand, are securities grouped together to represent a particular index fund like the Dow Jones or a particular industry like energy. With the stock, your risk resigns in the success of that one company. While with ETFs, your risk is spread broadly across a group of companies. Number two, do stocks and ETFs trade in the same way? Yes, you can purchase stocks or ETFs using the same type of ticket. And both can be bought and sold throughout the day. Number three, why do people trade securities? You might build wealth in the stock market one of two ways. Either selling a stock at a higher price than you bought it or holding the stock and earning dividends based on its earnings. Dividends can be cash payments or when reinvested automatically, take the form of additional shares of the stock. Due to market fluctuation, there's no guarantee on your investments. Number four, do I need a certain amount of money to get started? You can start by purchasing a few stocks or you can invest a lot. It's all tailored to your investment goals. Keep in mind that many people who succeed at investing add to their portfolio consistently, either using their profits from trading or a portion of their monthly savings. You may also want to use occasional windfalls, say your tax refund or a work bonus to purchase a few more stocks. Remember, you can also roll current investments, either stocks or money from another investment account into your Axos Invest account.
