Q. What is a Blue Chip

A "blue chip" is the nickname for a stock that is thought to be safe, in excellent financial shape and firmly entrenched as a leader in its field. Blue chips generally pay dividends and are favorably regarded by investors. A few examples of blue chips are Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, Gillette, Berkshire Hathaway and Exxon-Mobile.

Blue chip stocks are sometimes referred to as bellwether issues.
