Saving and Investing

Stocks and bonds, money market and mutual funds, IRAs and Roth IRAs, CDs and annuities, and good old-fashioned passbook accounts—this program helps students make sense of the many ways to save and invest money. With input from financial experts about the risks and rewards of each, the video defines terms viewers may have heard but not understood, such as compound interest, capital gains and losses, the NASDAQ and the Dow, market risk, inflation, and dividends. Smart, clear graphics help explain how the stock market works, the four types of bonds, saving for retirement, and the value of diversifying. Highlights include opening a brokerage account, the best time to buy and sell stocks, and investing in a college degree. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. A Meridian Production. Part of the series Personal Finance Essentials. (33 minutes)
