Case Report 1 “
1.Considering that Pansky is a retired grade school teacher and wants to invest conservatively I would recommend US Treasury securities. US. Treasury securities offer the lowest risk to investors because they are backed in full by the US government. Of the other choices a money market mutual fund would be the next lowest in risk because it is invested in a portfolio of short term high grade debt securities. A retired individual who requires income should invest in bond funds, not growth. Since Sue Pansky is a risk avoider she should invest in the corporate bonds.. The reason is that her investment of $30,000 is secure to the extent of $20,000 as this amount has been guaranteed by Julia. The bond would return 13% per year and at least $ 20,000 back at the end of the year

In case of common stocks his expected returns is only 88%. So, Ray Cahn should go in for corporate bonds.
3. Lila is a risk avoider and very conservative; I would recommend her to purchase U.S. Treasury Bonds. Not to purchase long term bonds because interest rates will rise and it could be affect bond prices. She believes that Julia has a good chance of being successful; she should go in for common stock.

George Yates believes that “there is an equally likely chance for success”. It sounds like he is a risk taker and should invest in stocks. George Yates is considering that, “starting right corporation” is a small company that demonstrates significant long term growth...
