Investments consist of things that are purchased with the hope that they will become more valuable in the future. Potential investment vehicles include all sorts of physical items like antiques and collectibles, as well as liquid assets like stocks, bonds, and precious metals. Investors try to achieve a high return on their investments while minimizing risk factors. Many successful investors diversify their investment portfolios, hoping that at least some of their investments will provide a good ROI (return on investment).
