Stock and equity options are a little utilized tool for most investors. They have been described as complicated, risky, and of limited value. Although, the first claim may be true, the basics of options can be learned in just a few minutes. And while all investments involve some element of risk, options are inherently no more risky than any other instrument and when used in conjunction with buying/selling stocks, they can actually reduce risk. The value that options provide to both the casual and institutional investor rests in their ability to hedge against large moves, to further diversify a portfolio, and to respond to opportunities across the full range of market conditions.
If you would like to learn about stock options and how they might be used to invest, please join us for a brief introductory session. Depending on interest, we may develop a regular meeting schedule to dive deeper into things.
This event is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Faculty and presented by Jim Harding.
