AtRiskGrades (www.riskgrades.com), youcan get a risk analysis for a stock, bond,mutual fund, or your overall portfolio.Risk grades range from zero, the leastrisky, to 1000 or more, the most risky.The more aggressive your portfolio, thehigher the risk grade will be. A reasonablyaggressive portfolio may score 100or more on the risk scale. In contrast,conservative holdings may earn a 25. Inrating investments within the portfolio,the program assigns higher risk gradesto individual stocks and bonds asopposed to mutual funds.
