Should I Buy a Mutual Fund?
12 Reasons Why You Will Be Happy With a Stock Mutual Fund


Here are the reasons you should buy a mutual fund.
  1. Buying a mutual fund takes less research and time than buying individual stocks. The manager of the mutual fund does the research and buys the stocks.
  2. You can buy shares of a mutual fund with less money, and add more shares later.
  3. The price of a mutual fund is less volatile than the prices of many stocks, so your risk can be less.
  4. You can buy many mutual funds conveniently online through your stockbroker.
  5. Some brokers charge no commission when you buy mutual funds from them.
  6. A mutual fund owns shares of many companies, more than you could buy for yourself. This gives you a diversified portfolio and less risk.
  7. A mutual fund encourages a long-term buy and hold stock investment strategy, one that is likely to be more profitable.
  8. When you buy mutual funds, you can choose from thousands of funds. Many companies offer a family of mutual funds. Some of these companies are American Century, Dreyfus, Fidelity, Franklin Templeton, Goldman Sachs, Invesco, Janus, T. Rowe Price, and Vanguard.
  9. You can buy shares in an index fund. An index fund is a mutual fund that owns shares of all the stocks in a popular stock index. You can buy the Dow Jones, the S&P 500 Index, the Russell 5000 Index and many others.
  10. Index funds, in particular, have very low annual management fees, so your investment grows faster.
  11. You can buy a mutual fund that meets your personal investing needs. Mutual funds invest in different groups of stocks called sectors. For example, there are large-cap mutual funds that buy the stock of large companies, mid-cap funds and small-cap funds.
  12. You can buy shares in a mutual fund that targets special sectors for investing, like Emerging Growth, China, Gold or Dividend Stocks.

In summary, you should buy a mutual fund for the convenience, the diversification, less risk and lower cost. You can take advantage of special mutual funds, like index funds and sector funds.

I hope life brings you much success.
I wish you a very happy day.
