Stocks offer an interesting opportunity for an investor to participate in operative companies. An investor can profit by receiving dividends or by an increasing share price. On the downturn an investor could suffer by realising losses if shares are sold at lower price levels. In the worst-case scenario a company could go bankrupt and the share price could fall to 0. It is therefore highly advised to diversify one's stock portfolio.
