Buy-and-hold investors take a long-term view of investing, generally keeping a bond from date of issue to date of maturity and holding onto shares of a stock through bull and bear markets.
Among the advantages of following a buy-and-hold strategy are increased opportunity for your assets to compound and reduced trading costs. Among the risks are continuing to hold investments that are no longer living up to reasonable expectations.
