13 0 celebrate 100th Will you explain (Mnvarflbl* bond*, tanvarflMa subordinated d* btntura* and linking fund dV iMftturas? I would lilt* to know who issuas HIM* and whoro fhay can bo purchased. Answer —; A bond and a debenture are similar in that both represent a debt owned by a corporation, rather than a part of v the ownership of the corporation. Actually a debenture is a particular type of bond. "Bond" is more likely to refer to a claim against certain specific assets, while "debenture" refers to a claim against the general credit of the corporation — with no specific asset pledged to pay it off. Both bonds and debentures may be convertible — in most cases, into the common stock of the corporation. However, lit is possible for them to be convertible into another security, or even into a security of another corporation. A "subordinate debenture" commonly refers to one that will not be paid off, if worst conK-s to worst, until previously issued debentures have been paid in full. It is "next- in-line," after another security in claim to rights, privileges, and property. "Sinking-fund debentures" are ones for which the corporation has set up a sinking fund — that is, a fund into which it makes regular payments that will be used eventually to buy back or retire the debentures. Your broker can provide you with a list of convertible securities. More and more companies are issuing tihem >these days. Question — My wife and I •ro in our mid-40's. We have never invested and are uncertain how to start. If we started an investment club should some members have • knowledge of investing, or do a group of friends and acquaintances learn by trial and error? If one inherited money, how would you suggest it be invested? Answer — Organizing investment club to quite andI'm sending you a foldef on how to do it. Most members of investment dubs start with no experience whatever. Nevertheless, using the Investment Club Manual and other tools supplied by the National Association of investment Clubs, they quickly learn how to organize their club and how to go about stu* dying stocks. You don't put much money into your club to begin With; your experience and investment knowledge grow along with the amount of money you have invested. One reason for starting an investment club is to learn. As you learn about a number of different companies you will be in a position to understand them and analyze other companies and know*where to put any additional funds you might have in addition to your $10 to $20 a month deposited in your club. If you have inherited a sizable estate, you would be wise to seek the advice of your bank trust department or a professional security analyst on how to handle it.
