This week’s AAII Weekly Features highlight these valuable AAII articles:
- Protecting Against Price Drops: Puts Versus Stop Orders: Put options limit the amount of potential downside, while stop orders (though costless) do not ensure a minimum price.
- Selecting Active Equity Mutual Funds: Don’t Get Caught in the Middle: Mutual funds with market-beating performance tend to be highly active, hold relatively fewer stocks and be of smaller size.
- Model Fund Portfolio: REITs Show Their Long-Term Value: During the portfolio’s past 12 years, long-term equity REITs have provided excellent diversification without sacrificing return.
- Misunderstanding Variable Universal Life Can Lead to Adverse Consequences: Bad market conditions can cause the cash value of these policies to be much lower than forecast. Find out how to best use these policies.
