  10. Dow, S&P 500 Open Slightly Higher
    | 09:50 AM EST

    U.S. stocks opened slightly higher Wednesday as investors sold government bonds. The S&P 500 rose 0.1%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average edged higher 0.2%. The Nasdaq Composite Index also opened with modest gains of less than 0.1%, following declines in technology stocks Tuesday.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
