Common stock risk is the financial risk that the value of an individual company’s stock may fall as a result of factors directly relating to that company, such as decisions made by its management or lower demand for the company’s products or services. Common stocks may decline significantly in price over short or extended periods of time.
Investing in securities of large-cap companies may involve greater risk than is customarily associated with investing in stocks of smaller companies.
Investments focused in a particular industry are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.
