Active Vs Passive Investing

When it comes to comparing active vs. passive investing and determining which investment method is best, the answer isn?t as clearly cut as you might imagine.

Everyone has very different risk tolerance levels, so it?s important to understand your own preferences and investing goals before you choose between active and passive investing choices.

Active vs. Passive Investing Definitions

Actively managed investments, such as mutual funds, try to beat the market performance of a benchmark index, such as the S&P 500, by choosing the best 100 or so performing stocks based on a likelihood of receiving good returns.

A passively managed investment will simply accept that market performance is what it is and invest in all 500 stocks on the index.

Which is Better ? Active or Passive?

Many investors wonder what the better option is for their own investing goals. Once again, it does come down to the individual investor?s personal levels of risk tolerance.

The level of risk you?re willing to take with your hard-earned money can often determine how you?re willing to spend and invest. After all, higher risks can often yield higher returns. Unfortunately higher risks can also compound losses too.

Low risk might equate to lower returns, but it?s commonly believed that a low guaranteed gain is far better than a risky bet on a higher risk return that may not eventuate.

Active Investing

An active investor understands that not all stock pricings move at the same rate or even in the same direction as the entire market as a whole. They will actively try to single out individual stocks that have the likelihood of out-performing the index.

In most cases, actively managed mutual funds carry higher costs. This is partly associated with the higher trading costs, time costs involved with researching likely stock picks and management costs.

For those investors who wish to take on their active investing activities themselves rather than trust their money to a fund manager, then day trading on the stock market is a very similar tactic. You spend the time researching stocks that are likely to outperform the index and you manage your portfolio personally, buying and selling as you try to capture profits and minimize losses.

Passive Investing

A passive investor will understand that as the market index moves up or down, then having a passively managed fund that is broadly diversified across almost all the available stocks on that index is likely to return average returns that are somewhat in line with the returns shown by that index.

Passively managed funds often carry lower fees and may tend to offer lower returns. However, those lower returns are often favored by investors who believe that receiving a low return is better than risking the chance of receiving no return at all.

For investors who once again don?t wish to trust their money to a fund manager, then your passive investing option is to develop a broadly diversified stock portfolio that you hold for the long term. You have the choice of allowing your stocks to simply sit in your portfolio and collecting the dividend or you can reinvest your dividend earnings back into your portfolio to acquire further stocks.

Let This Build Your List For You! It’s So Easy!

Let This Build Your List For You! It’s So Easy…

Check Out The Only Program Of Its Kind Where You Can Make Money While Building Your List, Brand Yourself As A Marketer And Get Unstoppable Traffic Without Clicking A Single Ad…

Find out More Here
I was in the exact same situation, until I heard about this new site:

There are more ways to promote your site with, less effort than you can imagine, than I’ve ever seen before! Of all of the sites I’ve used there was always one or two things I really liked about them, but the majority of the features seemed like clutter or a distraction.

Plus, it was way too much work to get any kind of a return on my time! Things have definitely changed for me!

It’s like Mike pulled each of my favorite features from my current list builder sites, eliminated all of the things I couldn’t stand, and threw in a couple of completely new and cutting edge tactics that make results exponentially better than I had ever thought possible!

If you’ve tried all of the other sites that have you busting your hump trying to earn credits just a few at a time, then you’re in for a shock because Mike makes it almost too easy with the Credit Auctions (where you can actually earn $ by auctioning off your credits… yes real moo lah!), and the “Golden Nugget Email”… Sorry I can’t give this one away but you’ll soon be addicted and having a blast!

Finally… working online is fun again!

If you need more traffic to your site, your sales pages are lonely or you just want to get better results from your affiliate marketing efforts (yes, you can even promote affiliate programs!), then you need to check out this brand new site

To Your New-found Success,
Regards
Graham

P.S. – There are a limited number of upgraded memberships available, but if they’re gone by the time you sign up… Just check out the Support Tab inside the Member’s area and let Mike know you want to be put on the wait list when a new spot opens up… talk about increasing your website traffic… this is your Golden Ticket!
