Q.1 What are stocks and bonds? Describe how you could estimate their values. If you are investing in the stock market, which would you invest in and why? Can we compare, contrast, and discuss stocks and bond investments?
Q.2 write a reply to this discussion
Stocks are an investment option that provides the investor a stake or partial ownership in the organization, while bonds are more like a temporary loan from the investor to the organization. Stocks allow you freely choose when to relinquish the investment and make good on your investment, while bonds provide a fixed rate of return for a set period of time.
Therefore, another way to look at this is that the difference is essentially that of debt vs equity. The most significant difference of note is in how they generate money for the investor. Stocks must appreciate over time and be sold at a later date while bonds generate interest revenue for the investor at a fixed rate over time, generally speaking.
