Should I invest in stocks, or are they too risky?


There’s more to investing than “buy low, sell high.”

When selecting stocks for a portfolio, the advisors at MaPP Investment Services take careful determination to assess whether a client has the proper risk tolerance to use these forms of investments. Stock can play a very important role in an investment portfolio. Whether it is addressing current income needs, the potential for capital appreciation, or attempting to offset inflation, these types of securities offer a wide array of use.

Stock investing at its core:

When a client purchases shares of stock, they are acquiring a small or large portion of physical ownership in that company. This means that they are given voting privileges on changes the company wants to implement. Over the long-term, stock investors have enjoyed enhanced returns when compared to those investors with other forms of securities in their portfolios. Since there are literally thousands of different stocks in the universe, our advisors take great pride in the due diligence process that we use when analyzing whether a stock will be a good suit for a client or not. We promote a disciplined approach to stock investing, mainly focusing on those companies with proven track record of success, and holding them for the long haul.

The professionals at MaPP can help determine which stocks will offer the best return for your investment. Contact us to learn more at (330) 339-6308 or submit a form.

Investments are subject to risk, including the loss of principal. Because investment return and principal value fluctuate, shares may be worth more or less than their original value. Some investments are not suitable for all investors, and there is no guarantee that any investing goal will be met. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Talk to your financial advisor before making any investing decisions.
