For investors with long-term goals, such as planning for retirement or saving for a child's or grandchild's education, stocks may be a good type of investment to consider. However, stocks flutuate in value, and may not be suitable for the risk adverse.

Equities, or stocks, allow investors to participate in the earnings stream of a corporation in two ways - through dividends paid, and by capital gains generated as the stock appreciates in value. They are often an important part of a long-term investment portfolio.

Equities have traditionally generated better returns than many other types of investments over long periods of time. They have also been effective in helping investors and retirees protect themselves from the effects of inflation. If your investment horizon is longer term, stocks may be an integral part of your overall financial portfolio.

If your investment goals are for the long term, a PNC Investments Financial Advisor can help you decide whether equities are right for you.
