4 How do they work and what are the fees? Fund Managers: paid based upon performance Open Ended Purchased or sold whenever Load: the sales charge Front end you pay when you buy Closed end load you pay when you sell No Load funds no sales fee; no salesperson
5 What are Bonds? Money lent tothe government ortoa private business It s an IOUor a loan from you Government bonds: Obligations or Treasuries The principal is FROZEN until it matures Rateof return (interest) is called its YIELD
6 Government Bonds: Absolutely No risk Yield is low. Types of government bonds T Bills: matures < 1 year T Notes: 2 10 years T Bonds: years.
7 T Notes and T Bonds Interest paid twice a year not at the end. Example: You do not have to copy this example $10,000 2 year T Note at 4% would pay $400 annually You would get $200 twice a year. That s a total of $800 at the end of two years. At maturity you would receive the par value or face value of $10,000
8 Municipal Bonds ( Munis ) Offered by cities Advantage: Triple-Tax Free! Plus, they help your city! Note: Federal Treasuries (T Bills, Notes and Bonds) are Exempt from local and state taxes But not Federal Income Tax. Munis are exempt from everything.

18 2. Sell your stock for more than you paid: buy low, sell high Suppose you bought 5,000 shares at $12 a share. That means you invested $$60,000 A year later, it s selling for $15 a share. You sell. You receive $75,000. That s a profit of $15,000
19 Why do Privately-owned Businesses go Public?

30 Stocks are risky different from bonds; you are an owner; not a creditor. There are no guarantees that the corporation will make a profit. If the compaydoesn t make a profit, there are no DIVIDENDS. &. If they don t make a profit, no one will buy your stock from you. But, IF profits are made - you will receive dividends on a regular basis. Or if you bought low you can sell high for a profit!

34 There are manytoolsanalysts use to judge stocks. Here are 4 socalled Metrics : P/E RATIO: Price to earnings ratio: Price of the stock divided by the EARNINGS PER SHARE (EPS). $30 per share divided by $2 earnings per share equals a P/E of 15. The lower the P/E the better. 30 divided by $3 is a P/E of 10: that s better. YIELDS: The percentage of a dividend paid against the stock price. If you get a $3 dividend on a $30 stock, your yield is 10%. If you get a $6 dividend on a $30 stock, your yield is 20% In this one, the higher the yield, the better

Small cap stock offer the potential for big gains in sort spans of time. PRICE TO BOOK RATIO: Share price divided by Book Value of the stock Book Value is all of the company s assets minus its liabilities. Like P/E Ratio, the lower the number the better
