What are the benefits and risks of share investing?
c Shares are also dependable on consumer trends and media perspective.
All shares can rise in value over time and you may be able to sell your shares for more than you purchased them for, the difference in the purchase and sale price of shares is more commonly referred to as capital growth.
There are two main types of shares, growth shares and income (defensive) shares.
Growth shares typically have higher levels of growth and carry more risk as they are often newer less established companies. Income shares have strong dividend yields and typically provide less risk as these companies are often larger and well established.
Not all companies pay dividends. If they do, they will typically announce the size of the dividend when they release their full or half yearly results.
Please know, the value of investments can go up as well as down and you may receive back less than your original investment, meaning, when investing your capital is at risk.
