We all know it’s an option to buy bonds vs. stocks—but what is the best investment?

“Since 2007, investors have poured almost $1.4 trillion dollars into bond funds; I presume this was done in an attempt to be safe,” says Howard Pressman, a Certified Financial Planner at Egan, Berger & Weiner, LLC. “But are these investors truly safe, or will they be sorry?”

Watch as Pressman explains the following questions:
1. What investors have done differently since the market fall in 2008? 
2. If there are dangers in this type of behavior? 
3. If you can lose money in bonds, what a better approach might be? 
4. How investors can protect themselves?
