I personally avoid index funds and ETFs (exchange traded funds). As a dividend growth investor with the goal of driving passive income (via dividend checks), these investment vehicles do not meet my needs. Today's video compares and contrasts individual dividend stocks with index funds (and ETFs). I discuss the pros and cons of each. In particular, I cover the following: * What are your investment goals? Mine involve massive amounts of cash flow that cover my living expenses so I can visit beautiful places like Hawaii more often. * Do you want to average? That's what will happen with an index fund (by definition). I don't want to be average and that's why I personally invest in individual stocks. * Individual stocks offer control, stability, the opportunity for superior results, more risk (although mitigated somewhat via diversification), lower fees, and a bit more work. * Exchange traded funds and index funds offer less control, the ability to track an index, less risk, higher fees, and less work. * Learn where index funds and ETFs may make sense. Especially retirement accounts that only offer actively managed mutual funds as the alternative. And, charities where there is a fiduciary responsibility. * Learn why I don't like index funds. I just can't see them working for anyone who wants to make a living off of dividends. * Also, I cover three key points: (1) Individual stocks allow one to optimize for dividends. (2) Individual stocks allow one to buy value (buy what's "on sale"). (3) Index funds include lower quality stocks, and lift such stocks to unfair valuations.

HIGH DIVIDEND ETF⚡Top 3 Passive Income ETF's for 2018 (Actionable!)⚡ So, you want to create passive income, but you don’t have that much time on your hands? Well then I’m glad you stumbled upon to this channel or you maybe have been around since the beginning of the channel and then you probably know that we talk a lot about passive income and one of the most popular sources of passive income out there is dividends, (high dividend yield stocks/ETF) which basically means that you invest your money in a company’s stock and then every month, quarter or year (depending on the company) you receive dividend payments from the company just because you’ve trusted your money with them and you don’t have to do anything further besides buying the company’s stock, that sounds pretty good right?! But what if you don't know nothing about the stock market or picking stocks or high dividend yields and all that stuff? Don’t worry about it we’ve got your back! A great option to still be invested in stocks while you don’t know much about the stock market is by investing in an ETF (or in our case a HIGH DIVIDEND ETF) where you often get quite a nice diversification and people working for you to get you the best results but if you’re not sure what an ETF is in the video you'll get a short definition. While it may sound easy, picking the right HIGH DIVIDEND ETF can still be a very confusing job to do but because you’re family now we’re gonna help you out with that! In this video we’ll share you 3 HIGH DIVIDEND ETF’s to buy for their great dividends (duuh?) and passive income and at the end of the video I’ll show you my personal favorite HIGH DIVIDEND ETF with a dividend yield of more than 15% that generates me around 500 dollars per month and I don’t even have to look at any charts, news or what not, so if you want to find out which one it is no cheating just watch this video until the end! More specifically we talk about: 1. Invesco KBW High Dividend Yield Financial ETF with a ticker symbol KBWD 2. Alerian MLP ETF with a ticker symbol AMLP 3. First Trust Preferred Securities & Income ETF with a ticker symbol FPE 4. ???????????????? BONUS ???????????????

Dividend growth stocks and related ETFs may not be too eye-catching, but the strategy's stable nature helps investors garner steady returns. "For us, we focus on dividend growth strategies, not the highest of yielders, but the companies that are consistently growing their dividends," Simeon Hyman, Head of Investment Strategy for ProShares, said. "It gives you a very consistent profile of companies that can grow but also have a lot of downside protection as well because of the robustness of their business model - moats if you will." For example, S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF (NOBL) participated in the FANG driven or technology driven market rally last year without actually having exposure to the riskier nature of the tech segment. The ETF only includes a 1.9% tilt toward the information technology sector and was only came in a hair's breadth short of the benchmark S&P 500's performance last year.

High dividend yields may be attractive in the current environment, but investors need to focus on future dividend growth, not current yield, said Eric Ervin, CEO of Reality Shares. 'If earnings continue to slide, the high yield, high payout ratio companies won't be able to maintain their dividend and the stocks will become even more volatile,' said Ervin. 'Take profits now on your high yielding, low quality names, they have significantly outperformed the market. Transition those profits into stronger healthier companies with good prospects for future dividend growth.' The Reality Shares DIVS ETF , which seeks to deliver capital appreciation based on the growth of dividends - not stock price - of large cap companies, is up 3% year-to-date. Historically, dividend and earnings growth have been fairly correlated over the long term. However, over the last few years, dividend and earnings growth have deviated significantly, and this makes sense as earnings growth is traditionally much more volatile than dividend growth, according to Ervin. S&P 500 dividend growth is around 2.5% year-to-date, while year-over-year dividend growth is around 5.6%, according to Reality Shares. 2016 should be the fifth consecutive year of record dividend payments in the S&P 500, although it may not be the sixth consecutive year of double-digit dividend growth. Ervin said the market will continue to see strong dividend growth in the information technology sector, regardless of whether or not earnings growth persists among those companies. That is because they continue to have lower-than-average dividend payout ratios and tend to have significant amounts of cash on their books to cover increasing dividend payments for years to come. The financial sector is another good place to seek dividend growth, according to Ervin, now that the nation's biggest banks have been passing the government's stress tests. 'You are not going to get a massive yield out of these banks, but you are going to get earnings growth and dividend growth out of that,' said Erwin, adding that it is also a good time to reduce exposure to over-extended, high-yielding utility stocks.

Used correctly, fixed income can add diversification and a steady source of income to any investor’s portfolio. But how do you choose the right fixed-income ETF? The key to choosing the right fixed-income ETF lies in what it actually holds. U.S. bonds or international bonds? Government securities or corporate debt? Bonds that come due in two years or 20 years? Each decision determines the level of risk you’re taking and the potential return. There are many types of risks to consider with bond investing. Let’s talk more about two in particular: Credit risk and Interest-rate risk. Determining the level of credit risk you want to assume is an important first step when choosing a fixed-income ETF. Do you want an ETF that only holds conservative bonds—like bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury? Or do you want one holding riskier corporate debt? The latter may pay you a higher interest rate, but if the company issuing the bond goes bankrupt, you’ll lose out. ETFs cover the full range of available credit. Look carefully at the credit quality composition of the ETFs underlying holdings, and don’t be lured in by promises of high yields unless you understand the risks. Bonds are funny. Intuitively, you would assume that higher interest rates are good for bondholders, as they can reinvest bond income at higher prevailing interest rates. But rising interest rates may be bad news, at least in the short term. Imagine that the government issues a 10-year bond paying an interest rate of 2%. But shortly thereafter, the U.S. Federal Reserve hikes interest rates. Now, if the government wants to issue a new 10-year bond, it has to pay 3% a year in interest. No one is going to pay the same amount for the 2% bond as the 3% bond; instead, the price of the 2% bond will have to fall to make its yield as attractive as the new, higher-yielding security. That’s how bonds work, like a seesaw: As yields rise, prices fall and vice versa. Another important measure to consider when looking at interest rate risk is duration which helps to approximate the degree of price sensitivity of a bond to changes in interest rates. The longer the duration, the more any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Conversely, the shorter the duration, the less any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Let’s review a few other considerations when looking at fixed income ETFs. First, expense ratios: Because your expected return in a bond ETF is lower than in most stock ETFs, expenses take on extra importance. Generally speaking, the lower the fees, the better. Second, tracking difference: It can be harder to run a bond index fund than an equity fund, so you may see significant variation between the fund’s performance and the index’s returns. Try to seek out funds with low levels of tracking difference, meaning they track their index well. Finally, some bonds can be illiquid. As a result, it’s extra important to look out for bond ETFs with good trading volumes and tight spreads. There are other factors to watch for too, but these are the basics. ETFs can be a great tool for accessing the bond space, but as with anything, it pays to know what you’re buying before you make the leap.

Do you know all the costs involved with investing in, buying, and owning an ETF? Learn how to choose low-cost ETFs that work for you. Important Information **You must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares through Vanguard Brokerage Services (we offer them commission-free) or through another broker (which may charge commissions). See the Vanguard Brokerage Services commission and fee schedules on https://vgi.vg/2yfnvdo for limits. Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable directly with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. ETFs are subject to market volatility. When buying or selling an ETF, you will pay or receive the current market price, which may be more or less than net asset value.** All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Costs are only one factor to consider when making investment decisions. There may be other material differences between investment products that must be considered prior to investing. For example, investments in stocks and bonds issued by non-U.S. companies are subject to risks including country/regional risk, which is the chance that political upheaval, financial troubles, or natural disasters will adversely affect the value of securities issued by companies in foreign countries or regions; and currency risk, which is the chance that the value of a foreign investment, measured in U.S. dollars, will decrease because of unfavorable changes in currency exchange rates. These risks are especially high in emerging markets. Funds that concentrate on a relatively narrow market sector face the risk of higher share-price volatility. © 2017 The Vanguard Group, Inc.

Levi talks about how a High Dividend Yield can be safer than Low Dividend yield and shows that a more important factor to look at for investors is the Dividend Payout Ratio. Dividend Payout ratio is calculated by dividing the dividends by the net income over the same time period. Levi typically looks for dividend payout ratios of 40% - 90% when assessing new potential stock purchases. Levi's is not a finacial planner and is not offering investment advice.

The current low interest rate environment means that bond investors have to take more risk in order to gain an attractive return on their invested money. The current low interest rates also present a risk that if interest rates and inflation rise in the future, then bond prices may fall and portfolios could suffer losses.

In this video I'm going to tell you why you should think carefully about owning small cap ETFs. You probably won’t be surprised if I tell you that small-cap stocks, in general, have outperformed large-cap stocks over the long-term, even on a risk-adjusted basis, with risk measured as standard deviation. This is well-documented around the world and over time.

Fixed-income investors are worried that their bond funds may take a hit in a rising interest rate environment. However, one can turn to a rate-hedged bond ETF strategy that aims to eliminate interest rate risk all together and focus on helping investors achieve their target income generation. "We like to think of ourselves as the leader of fixed-income solutions that give investors options to stay invested in fixed-income markets, earn an attractive level of yield but hedge out the duration risk," Kieran Kirwan, Director of Investment Strategies at ProShares, said at the 2018 Morningstar Investment Conference. Specifically, the ProShares Investment Grade-Interest Rate Hedged ETF (BATS: IGHG) and ProShares High Yield Interest Rate Hedged ETF (BATS: HYHG) are two rate hedged ETF strategies that try to eliminate the rising rate risks. IGHG shows a -0.07 year net effective duration and a 4.09% 30-day SEC yield while HYHG has a -0.10 year duration and a 6.13% 30-day SEC yield.

You can download a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet of high dividend stocks with 5%+ yields here: https://www.suredividend.com/high-dividend-stocks/ ------------------------- Many investors look to high yield dividend stocks with the hope of generating more income from their investment portfolios. The problem with this approach is that many stocks with high yields have unsustainable dividend payments. Their dividends exceed their earnings or cash flows, which inevitably results in a dividend cut. You can avoid this problem by investing in high yield stocks with low payout ratios. In this video, I’m going to introduce 5 high yield dividend stocks with sustainable payout ratios that you could buy today. High Yield Stock #1: AT&T (T) AT&T is the largest telecommunications company in the United States by market capitalization. Its only competitor of similar size is fellow telecommunications giant Verizon Communications. AT&T has a current dividend yield of 6.3% and is perhaps the single safest stock with a dividend yield above 5%. Using 2018 earnings guidance, the company is on pace for a dividend payout ratio of approximately 58%. AT&T is also absurdly cheap right now. We expect the company to generate earnings-per-share of about $3.45 in fiscal 2018, which implies a price-to-earnings ratio of 9.3. AT&T’s 10-year average price-to-earnings ratio has been 13.4. We believe that valuation expansion will me a meaningful contributor to this stock’s total returns moving forward. High Yield Stock #2: Owens & Minor (OMI) Owens & Minor is a healthcare distribution, transportation, and logistics company. It is likely that you haven’t heard of Owens & Minor. It is a small cap stock with a market capitalization of $1.1 billion. Still, there’s a lot to like about Owens & Minor. The company trades with a dividend yield of 6%. Moreover, this high dividend yield is well-supported by the underlying cash flows. Owens & Minor is on pace for a dividend payout ratio of just 52% in fiscal 2018. Like AT&T, Owens & Minor is currently undervalued. Our 2018 earnings estimate for Owens & Minor is $2.00 per share, which implies a current price-to-earnings ratio of 8.6. We believe that Owens & Minor deserves a price-to-earnings ratio of between 14 and 15. Valuation expansion has the potential to deliver excellent returns to today’s buyers of Owens & Minor. High Yield Stock #3: Altria Group (MO) Altria is the largest cigarette company in the United States. The company sells the Marlboro brand in the U.S. along with several non-smokeable brands and the Ste. Michelle brand of wine. Altria also has a 10% ownership stake in alcoholic beverage company Anheuser Busch. Altria is well-known for having an above-average dividend yield. The company’s yield is currently 4.9%. Altria’s management team targets a dividend payout ratio of 80% and is on pace for a payout ratio of 73% in 2018. The company’s valuation is also attractive. We believe the company should earn about $3.96 in fiscal 2018, which means it is trading at a current price-to-earnings ratio of 14.3. Altria’s 10-year average price-to-earnings ratio is 16. This is the rare case where investors can buy a very high-quality business at an extremely attractive price. High Yield Stock #4: Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) Omega Healthcare Investors is a healthcare real estate investment trust – or REIT, for short – that generates 85% of its revenue from skilled nursing facilities and 15% of its revenue from senior housing developments. This REIT currently trades with a remarkably high distribution yield of 8.4%. Omega Healthcare Investors appears likely to deliver funds from operations of $3.01 in fiscal 2018. Using the company’s current distribution payment, this implies a dividend payout ratio of 88%. Omega is trading at a price-to-FFO ratio of 10.4 while its 10-year average price-to-FFO ratio is 12.4. Today looks like an excellent opportunity for dividend investors to accumulate shares in this high-yielding REIT and bolster the passive income generated from their investment portfolios. High Yield Stock #5: Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) Enterprise Products Partners is a master limited partnership (MLP) that operates as an oil and gas storage and transportation company. Enterprise Products Partners’ asset base includes nearly 50,000 miles of pipelines and 250 million barrels of storage capacity. Enterprise Products Partners has a yield of 6.1%. Using cash flow, Enterprise Products Partners is on pace for a dividend payout ratio of just 65% in fiscal 2018. The company also appears slightly undervalued. Enterprise Products Partners is trading at a price-to-cash-flow ratio of 10.6, while its 10-year average price-to-cash-flow ratio is 11.6. The company holds appeal for income-oriented investors that want to accumulate shares in an undervalued midstream energy company.

I am excited to compare and contrast bonds versus dividend paying stocks in today's video. I know a lot of people are curious about bonds, what they are, and what I think about them. Finally, it's time to discuss why (in my humble opinion) bonds are very weak (and dividend stocks are strong). First, I start out with the definition of bonds. Bonds are debt instruments, loans that are made to companies or governments. For the buy and hold investor, there is no capital appreciation upside, although one gets some interest payments along the way (albeit at really low levels that are taxed as ordinary income with the exception of munis). Believe it or not, I actually own a bond mutual fund in an old retirement account. Learn in today's video why! (Hint: It was really a last resort since the stock mutual fund selections in that account are so incredibly poor.) If better funds were available (such as an S&P 500 index) or, better yet, dividend stocks - of course, I'd go that route! The example shared in today's video tells it all, in my opinion. * The 10 year treasury currently yields 2.871% * General Mills (GIS), a dividend stock that I own, has a starting yield of 4.3%. GIS is one of my favorite stock picks for 2018 and I'm actively buying the stock right now. And, GIS has a history of raising their dividend each year. If you believe there is inflation, that treasury bond yield looks even worse! Next, I dive into my comparison of bonds versus dividend stocks: 1. Bonds offer no real upside (for the buy and hold investor) other than cash flow. Stocks offer both dividend growth and also capital appreciation. 2. Bonds are more short term in nature, while stocks are long term. If one only has an investment horizon of a few years, perhaps bonds could make more sense. My dividend investing strategy certainly requires a very long term horizon (mine is forever). 3. In the short term, bonds offer less risk, and stocks offer more risk. However, I would argue that in the long term, bonds may offer more risk. And, I'm talking about financial risk here. What about risk of missing out on one's dreams? 4. Bonds are debt instruments and stocks mark equity ownership. 5. Bonds are weak and stocks are strong (in my opinion). 6. Bonds are less tax efficient, dividend stocks are more tax efficient. At the end of the day, I cannot bring myself to take a bond-centric approach. I have to strive for what I want in life, and I'm willing to take risk. In fact, if I'm not taking risk, I feel like I'm not really living life! The downside of failure to me is really inconsequential as compared to the downside to not pursuing my dreams. That said, there are folks out there who just can't sleep if they lose money. Those types of investors may be better off in bonds. Some financial analysts like a strategy of diversification across asset classes. For me, I'm all about focus. Yes, I diversify within my dividend stock portfolio. However, I like to keep things clean from an asset allocation standpoint. Want to learn why General Mills (GIS) is one of my favorite stock picks for 2018 for early retirement?

Alternatives are now an investor’s best option with stocks overvalued and bonds no longer a safe-haven in the face of a rising rate cycle, said Eric Ervin, CEO of Reality Shares. 'Investors need to find places where they can earn a return in a sideways or down market,' said Ervin. Still, in Ervin’s opinion there is a lack of true alternative investments in the market with too many vehicles that are over-diversified and unable to offer alpha or real downside protection. Along those lines, he said too many ETF products are overly similar, offering exposures that are nearly the same, with slight variations in weighting on the same set of stocks. In his view, the ETF industry needs to focus more on true innovation and bringing new strategies to investors. 'How many different flavors of peanut butter can you have?' asked Ervin. 'Because most of the ETFs are truly just different flavors or the same peanut butter in a different package. It’s not really differentiated.' Ervin said dividends are still an attractive way to approach investing, both as a measure of true corporate health and as a distinct asset class in their own right.

Before you invest in high dividend yield stocks, it is important to understand the dividend yield formula, but also to have an idea of the risks of only looking at dividend yield. How to calculate dividend yield, and how to use dividend yield? Watch the whole video to see both the pros and the cons of dividend yield. Examples of industries where dividend traditionally has been high are oil, commercial real estate and telecom. In the current low interest rate environment, you make very little return putting your money in a savings account or treasury bonds. That’s why many investors turn to high dividend industries with relatively low share price volatility to invest. A cash dividend is a cash payment from a company to its shareholders. Let’s look at the dividend for two companies in the telecom industry: AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ). The formula for dividend yield is annual dividend divided by the share price. AT&T has an annual dividend of $1.96 and a closing share price per April 5th 2017 of $41.02. AT&T’s dividend yield is therefore 4.8%. Verizon has an annual dividend of $2.31 and a closing share price per April 5th 2017 of $48.44. Verizon’s dividend yield is therefore also 4.8%. What are some of the pitfalls of using dividend yield as one of the main criteria for making investment decisions? You might not be seeing the whole picture! Here are five things you must be aware off: Strategic risk. Cash flow. Learn how to read a cash flow statement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZBjsIYrLvM&t=7s The turkey problem. Pay out versus invest. Lastly, math is just math. In summary, use dividend yield where appropriate, but look at the broader context before investing in the stock market! Thank you for watching!

Risk Free Stock Investment is one in which the investment is protected against any loss. The same logic is used by the capital protection funds for risk free investment. The basic principle is to identify a safe investment with assured returns. For example, debt funds/bond/fixed deposit with assured return of 8%. If the time horizon is 1 year and amount invested is Rs 1000. In this case, i will find out how much amount i should invest in safe investment so that after 1 year, it becomes Rs 1000 with returns. It will be approx Rs 930. Therefore, in SIP mode i will invest Rs 930 in a safe investment and Rs 70 in stocks. Thus my investment is protected. On the other hand in case of lump sum investment, the amount can be invested in safe option & you may wait for the returns to be tax free like investment in arbitrage funds for 1 year. After that, through monthly interest payout or systematic withdrawal plan you can invest that amount in the stocks. The investment, in this case, will be risk free stock investment.

Fixed-income investors are scrambling to adapt to a changing interest rate environment, but one may still generate yields and diminish rate risk through target-date bond ETFs. For instance, Guggenheim Investments has a suite of “BulletShares” defined-maturity bond ETFs, including a range of corporate bond options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2027 Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSCR) and a group of high-yield options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2025 High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSJP). "The objective of the BulletShares ETFs is to deliver the effective maturity of bonds that are maturing in the year. So once you get to the end of the year, we send them the asset value back to share holders," William Belden, Managing Director and Head of ETF Business Development for Guggenheim Investments, said at the Inside ETFs 2018 conference.

In this video, I’m going to tell you about my current Australian ETF allocation for 2019. Last year, as you may have seen in my other videos, my first crack at ETF investing involved 25% in Vanguard’s VAS (an ETF that gives you a low-cost exposure to the top 300 Australian companies), 25% VAE (a good way to invest in the Asian markets, excluding Japan), 25% VGAD and 25% VGS (both of which provide a low-cost way of investing in the world’s largest companies, the only difference being that VGAD is hedged to Australian dollars to counter the effects of currency fluctuations). After visiting China over the new year, I came back to Australia thinking that I didn’t want to invest too heavily in Asia anymore. Not because it’s a bad investment choice — not at all — but the turbulence involved in the Asian markets of late have put me off somewhat. I also decided, in the name of keeping things simple, that I would simplify my entire international portfolio. Instead of having three ETFs, I would cut that down to one — VESG. That is, the Vanguard Ethically Conscious International Shares Index ETF. It excludes securities with significant business activities involving fossil fuels, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, military weapons and civilian firearms, nuclear power and adult entertainment. It has a decent management fee of 0.18%. Combined with VAS’s fee of 0.14%, this is a very low-cost portfolio with investment in both Australian and global companies. I chose to increase my exposure to the Australian markets to 35%, mainly because most advisers recommend approximately this amount. This is mainly due to Australian franking credits which are basically a tax rebate to shareholders who receive dividends which have already incurred company tax. It’s used to prevent “double taxation”. Looking at the top holdings of VESG, we can see that many of the big American and European companies are represented. Some of you might be asking, “Are these companies really ethical?”, and I would say, “No, they’re probably not” — well at least, not in the strictest sense of the word. When it comes to ethical investing, ultimately it comes down to what the investment company define as ethical. In this case, Vanguard have decided that fossil fuels, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, firearms, nuclear power and adult entertainment, are not ethical. As you may have seen in my recent video titled, “Amazon Australia Warehouse Worker Drones — People Pretending to Be Robots” (https://youtu.be/ozkF1eW1elE), companies can be unethical without involving themselves in gambling, firearms, and tobacco. If you treat your workers poorly, then in my opinion, you’re not very ethical. However, if we’re too strict on ourselves about ethical investment, then in all honesty, we wouldn’t invest. The capitalist world that we live in, is — by it’s very nature — exploitative. The only benefit I see in choosing a so-called “ethical” ETF is to send a message to the big companies. If enough people send that same message, then eventually companies will listen and slowly change their practices to meet investor demand. And that’s what this ultimately boils down to — supply and demand. Anyway, if you don’t care about the whole ethics of investing, then you could easily swap out VESG for VGS — Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. Don’t get me wrong, VGS is a great investment. If you don’t care about the ethics, then this would be a perfectly good investment option. Taking a look at the top 10 holdings in VGS, it looks very similar to VESG. Comparing them side-by-side, they’re almost identical. In terms of returns, VAS has performed at an average of 7.62% p.a. since I first bought it back in January 2018. That’s pretty decent considering that last year was a fairly turbulent ride. It should be noted that I used dollar-cost averaging throughout the year, that is, I actually made six separate “buy” orders of VAS of about $5000 each at fairly regular intervals throughout 2018. With regard to VESG, I only bought into it this year in January and I’ve already had average returns of 42.15% p.a. That’s not because I’m a genius or anything, that’s just because I got lucky. I know that VAS still has a lot of unethical companies in there, so Vanguard, if you’re listening, an Australian ethical option would be fantastic. So what are your thoughts? Does ethical investment catch you fancy? Does investing ethically actually motivate companies to be good corporate citizens? Or is it just one big pile of BS? Let me know below.

With just a few months left in the year, the S&P 500 Index has relinquished its gains from this summer and is flirting with a negative annual finish for the first time since the end of the great recession. Higher interest rates, the impact of trade wars, and some notable negative corporate earnings surprises are just a few of the factors weakening market sentiment this fall.

What is INDEX FUND? What does INDEX FUND mean? INDEX FUND meaning - INDEX FUND definition - INDEX FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. An index fund (also index tracker) is a mutual fund or exchange-traded fund (ETF) with specific rules of construction that are adhered to regardless of market conditions. Those rules may include trading or implementation rules, such as tax-management, tracking error minimization, large block trading or patient/flexible trading strategies that allows for greater tracking error, but lower market impact costs. Index funds may also have rules that screen for social and sustainable criteria. An index fund’s rules of construction clearly identify the type of companies suitable for the fund. The most commonly known index fund, the S&P 500 Index Fund, is based on the rules established by S&P Dow Jones Indices for their S&P 500 Index. Equity index funds would include groups of stocks with similar characteristics such as the size, value, profitability and/or the geographic location of the companies. A group of stocks may include companies from the United States, Non-US Developed, emerging markets or Frontier Market countries. Additional index funds within these geographic markets may include indexes of companies that include rules based on company characteristics or factors, such as companies that are small, mid-sized, large, small value, large value, small growth, large growth, the level of gross profitability or investment capital, real estate, or indexes based on commodities and fixed-income. Companies are purchased and held within the index fund when they meet the specific index rules or parameters and are sold when they move outside of those rules or parameters. Think of an index fund as an investment utilizing rules-based investing. Some index providers announce changes of the companies in their index before the change date and other index providers do not make such announcements. One index provider, Dow Jones Indexes, has 130,000 indices. Dow Jones Indexes says that all its products are maintained according to clear, unbiased, and systematic methodologies that are fully integrated within index families. As of 2014, index funds made up 20.2% of equity mutual fund assets in the US. Index domestic equity mutual funds and index-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs), have benefited from a trend toward more index-oriented investment products. From 2007 through 2014, index domestic equity mutual funds and ETFs received $1 trillion in net new cash, including reinvested dividends. Index-based domestic equity ETFs have grown particularly quickly, attracting almost twice the flows of index domestic equity mutual funds since 2007. In contrast, actively managed domestic equity mutual funds experienced a net outflow of $659 billion, including reinvested dividends, from 2007 to 2014.

What is BOND FUND? What does BOND FUND mean? BOND FUND meaning - BOND FUND definition - BOND FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A bond fund or debt fund is a fund that invests in bonds, or other debt securities. Bond funds can be contrasted with stock funds and money funds. Bond funds typically pay periodic dividends that include interest payments on the fund's underlying securities plus periodic realized capital appreciation. Bond funds typically pay higher dividends than CDs and money market accounts. Most bond funds pay out dividends more frequently than individual bonds. Bond Funds can be classified by their primary underlying assets: Government: Government bonds are considered safest, since a government can always "print more money" to pay its debt. In the United States, these are United States Treasury securities or Treasurys. Due to the safety, the yields are typically low. Agency: In the United States, these are bonds issued by government agencies such as the Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae), Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. (Freddie Mac), and Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae). Municipal: Bonds issued by state and local governments and agencies are subject to certain tax preferences and are typically exempt from federal taxes. In some cases, these bonds are even exempt from state or local taxes. Corporate: Bonds are issued by corporations. All corporate bonds are guaranteed by the borrowing (issuing) company, and the risk depends on the company's ability to pay the loan at maturity. Some bond funds specialize in high-yield securities (junk bonds), which are corporate bonds carrying a higher risk, due to the potential inability of the issuer to repay the bond. Bond funds specializing in junk bonds – also known as "below investment-grade bonds" – pay higher dividends than other bond funds, with the dividend return correlating approximately with the risk. Bond funds may also be classified by factors such as type of yield (high income) or term (short, medium, long) or some other specialty such as zero-coupon bonds, international bonds, multisector bonds or convertible bonds. An important property of bond funds is the rating of the bonds they own. Funds may be rated from high to low credit quality. The quality of a fund is the average of the bonds owned by the fund. Funds that pay higher yields typically own lower quality bonds. Like stocks, the price of high-yield bonds is subject to fashion. For example, in late 2008, many high-yield bond funds were priced at 70 cents on the dollar. In fact, there were few bond defaults and the price recovered. Due to the lower price, investors sold out of high-yield bond funds, having a desire for "safe" cash and bonds. Funds invest in different maturities of bonds. This may be described by terms like "short", "intermediate", and "long". This affects how the fund value changes with interest rates. Funds invested in longer bonds will have more change. As a general rule, the yield for longer bonds is higher. Bond funds usually have a target length, such as five to ten years. Thus over time, they need to sell shorter bonds and buy longer bonds to stay in range. A bond fund with such a target length will never "mature" like a specific bond. Some UITs own bonds with a specific maturity date and will terminate at that point.

What is short selling? Join our March Trading Contest for your chance at over $8000 in prizes: https://app.wallstreetsurvivor.com/registerto/MarchMarketMoversReport?utm_source=MarketMoversReport&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=MarchContest Most people think of investing as buying a stock (or other asset) and making money when its price goes up - but it’s also possible to make a profit when a stock price goes down. This process is called short selling (or shorting). Short selling isn’t all peaches and cream. There are opportunities for high returns, but as usual, these come with high risks. The big risk here is that there is no limit to your losses. When you buy a stock, you can only lose the amount that you invested. But when you short, your losses are infinite because there is theoretically no end to how high a stock’s price can rise. Short selling isn’t for everyone. It requires a lot of time and research, and a desire for high risks and high returns. Short selling is primarily used for speculator looking to make a profit when the market goes down or investing looking to hedge their position.

For example, Charles Schwab has dabbled with fundamental or alternative index-based ETFs to tap into the rising smart beta trend, the ETF provider is more known for its cheap broad market cap-weighted index ETFs. "We do a lot of thinking per products," Jonathan de St Paer, Head of Strategy and Product Development at Charles Schwab Investment Management, said at the Charles Schwab Impact Conference. "We focus on having a limited number of products that are going to serve most of our clients' needs, so [we] do a lot of research and a lot of vetting before we do anything new."
