Stock Market Investment Tools


Investment was once something thought of as what rich people do. Today, investing plays a key role in the financial well-being of millions of Americans. The Securities Industry Association has stated, “the growth in individual investor participation has risen from 30.2 million U.S. shareowners in 1980 to 84.3 million in 2002.” According to a survey published by the Investment Company Institute and the Securities Industry Association, the latter figure encompasses 49.5 percent of U.S. households. Yet, how many of these investors really know the ropes when it comes to making the right investment decisions? Woefully few, laments the Oregon Department of Consumer & Business Services’ Division of Finance & Corporate Securities, noting that, “Less than one-fifth of those [Americans, who may or may not have been investors] polled passed a simple test asking whether stocks, bonds, savings accounts or certificates of deposit offered the best return over the last 20 years.”
