Food exists to be consumed.Stocks exist to be a store of value that you must eventually sell to someone else. No defined expiration.Bonds exist to play games with interest rates. They have a definite time to expiration. You get use (coupon payments) out of a bond while you hold it.Within one credit rating, one bond is more or less interchangeable for another (if your portfolio is diversified enough). Not so for stocks.Hey, I just made the case that bonds are consumables!
