9 Low-Risk Stocks for Risk-Averse Investors in 2018 - 1 of 10


 
9 Low-Risk Stocks for Risk-Averse InvestorsOne of the most important things for any investor to understand is their risk tolerance. Warren Buffett famously said the two most important rules of investing are as follows. Rule #1: don’t lose money and Rule #2: remember rule #1. Many investors know that they should be invested in stocks and other equities. However, they truly don’t have the stomach to invest in aggressive stocks that have the potential for huge gains, but also huge losses.

The reality of the market is that there is no investment that does not carry some level of risk. Even the value of cash depreciates over time. Fortunately, investors don’t have to choose between sleeping at night and investing in stocks. In this slideshow, we'll review nine stocks that offer risk-averse investors the opportunity for stable growth and, in some cases, a nice dividend which investors can use as additional income or reinvest.

With 2018 quickly coming to a close, it’s an ideal time to start rebalancing your portfolio for a profitable 2019. If you’re concerned about the direction of the market and want to sleep well knowing your portfolio is protected by low-risk stocks, then you owe it to yourself to consider the stocks in this presentation.
