COMMON INVESTING TERMS TO KNOW

  • Rate of Return: The additional amount you can expect to grow your money in 1 year. It is expressed as a percentage. For example, a 5% rate of return means you can expect your money to grow by 5% in 1 year. If you invest $100, by the end of 1 year your money will grow by $5, and your new amount would be $105.

  • Shares: A piece of a business that you can own by investing some money.

  • Shareholder: A person who owns shares; an investor.
