The stock market has continued to rise and is near all-time highs. What might lie ahead for investors? Investment Strategist Kate Warne offers some perspective on 2017 so far:
Investing in equities involves risks. The value of your shares will fluctuate, and you may lose principal.
Special risks are inherent in international investing, including those related to currency fluctuations and foreign political and economic events. Before investing in bonds, you should understand the risks involved, including credit risk and market risk. Bond investments are also subject to interest rate risk such that when interest rates rise, the prices of bonds can decrease, and the investor can lose principal value if the investment is sold prior to maturity.
Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss.
