Blue Chip Stocks

What is a blue-chip stock?

The term “blue-chip stock” came to investing from poker, where the blue chips have the highest value. Thus, blue-chip stocks are used to describe well-known, high-quality companies that are leaders in their industries. These stocks tend to show strong growth over their history and typically pay dividends. Besides, blue-chip stocks are generally large-cap, meaning their market valuation equals $5 billion (generally accepted benchmark) or more. Even if you are a newbie in investing, you are already familiar with the names of many top blue-chip stocks such as Intel, Coca-Cola, Apple, Walt-Disney, and IBM.

Why do people invest in blue-chip stocks?

Blue-chip stocks often become the core holdings of investment portfolios due to their reliability. Indeed, they stood the test of time. Blue chips have demonstrated a history of overcoming the difficulties of many kinds and reversing back. In addition, these companies don’t cut or suspend their dividend payments even during an economic crisis, that’s why they are perceived as safe financial investments.
