A decision to invest in a particular security may be based on a number of factors, including investors’ needs, goals, and comfort with risk. Before making an investment decision you should read the stock issuer's financial statements and other reports (for example, annual reports and Forms 10K, 10Q, 8K), or the in the case of initial public offerings or new issuances the applicable offering documents or registration statement.
