LONDON -- In this edition, David Kuo and Sonia Rehill discuss the difference between saving and investing. They examine the FTSE 100's peaks and troughs over the last 10 years, including hitting 6,700 before plunging to 3,200 and today settling at 5,700 points. Conceding that the market's volatility may put some off, they look at the difference between 1,000 pounds invested in an interest-earning savings account and the same amount invested in a stock market index tracker over a 10-year period. David furthers his case for making money on the stock market with the examples of Burberry (BRBY)SABMiller (LSE: SAB.L), and Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR.L). Just click the link below to find out what he has to say on the matter.
