Traditional interest-bearing bonds pay interest on a regular basis, typically semi-annually, quarterly, or monthly. The payments on these bonds are fixed, which means the amount you receive with each payment generally remains the same.
Though bonds are often used for their ability to generate income, it is also possible for them to turn into growth investments. This happens when interest rates drop below the interest rate the bond is receiving, which makes it an appealing investment for other investors and allows the investor holding the bond to sell the bond at a premium.
Investing in fixed-income securities involves certain risks, such as market risk if sold prior to maturity and credit risk especially if investing in high yield bonds, which have lower ratings and are subject to greater volatility. All fixed-income investments may be worth less than original cost upon redemption or maturity.
