What Are Blue Chip Stocks ?

In the Stock Market, common stocks of well-known companies with histories of profit growth and dividend payment, as well as quality management, products, and services are known as "Blue Chip Stocks". Blue chip stocks are usually high-priced and low-yielding. It is believed the term "blue-chip" comes from the game of poker in which the blue chip holds the highest value.
