Stocks and bonds are fundamental investing terms, but if you're new to investing, you might not have any idea what these terms mean. This video breaks it down. In a quick explainer video, Fidelity explains the difference between stocks and bonds, along with how they work when you invest in them. In general:
A Stock: A share in the ownership of a company
A Bond: An interest-earning loan you make to a company or government
The video goes into a bit more detail on what exactly this means in terms of personal investing, though. You can check it out above or at the link below.
