Beware of survivorship bias

In finance, the "survivorship bias" tends to accompany cases of great success of certain investments, whose hype overshadows cases where the same type of investment led to failure: this leads to a systematic distortion in the assessment of the real risks, which are therefore significantly underestimated.

What does the P/E ratio of a share tell investors?

The price/earnings (P/E) or price/earnings ratio, which is one of the so-called market 'multiples', is a figure that relates the price of a share to the company's earnings per share, i.e. it relates a company's earnings to its market capitalisation.   Beauty Flow" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

Investing in bonds: how do you identify interest rate risk?

Bonds are securities that are more affected by interest rates than others. Interest rates are both a risk and an opportunity. Two key measures that indicate the relationship between bonds and interest rates, and which also provide important information about the riskiness of that relationship, are 'duration' and 'modified duration'.

Short-term or long-term investments?

Short-term investments are made for a period of around 12-18 months, while investments beyond that are called medium- and long-term. There is no way to determine whether it is better to invest for the short or long term, other than by taking into account at least (and oversimplifying) your personal risk tolerance and investment goals.
