Why would someone invest in a higher risk stock instead of a low-risk bond?

    higher the risk, the higher the return... so more $'s in your pocket...

    with stocks you can lose your initial investment but with a bond you cannot lose your initial investment

    a bond is really a loan to a company for a specific time with a contract to be paid a certain amount of interest

    when people invest they want the best return, if you are risk aversive then you will take a conservative approach. if you want a high yield on the investment, then a high risk investment strategy is needed. Unfortunately, whilst the dividends are significant the chance of failure is also high.. so it all depends on a person's utility...
