So, what happens if you retire at or near a Market Peak? Have you thought about that? Statistically, people are more inclined to retire during the top end of a bull market. It only makes sense. That’s when confidence and peace of mind are higher. The trouble, as we all know, is that “what goes up also comes down” and if it comes down soon after we retire, that’s a problem. Also, statistically, the ten year periods following really strong ten year periods are not so hot. Withdrawing steady income from a declining balance can run a retirement off the road. Today, we’ll tell the story of Donna, whose great grandparents, grandparents, and parents ALL retired during market peaks going back to 1928, 1973, and 1999, and what Donna has decided to do with her retirement. Then Medicare specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us.

But is that really all there is to it? If all it took to be successful was to own lots of different stocks, without regard to WHY you own each and every one of them, then there would be no losers on Wall Street.   Everybody would win every day, and all the time. Because we know there are more losers than winners on Wall Street, it is important to truly diversify your portfolio in the smartest way possible–and according to your age.   A power packed show you don’t want to miss, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

In investing, knowledge is power. To paraphrase Benjamin Graham’s investment advice–Warren Buffett’s mentor–you should strive to know WHAT you are doing and WHY. If you don’t understand the game, he said, don’t play it…and Stay away until you do. Being honest, most of us would say we DON’T actually understand the market. It has gotten so massive and unpredictable, pretending to know every aspect of it is foolhardy. Even Warren Buffett, during his brilliant career, only worked within a slice of the market—companies that he grew to understand very well and companies that made real money in the real economy. Buffett took a mathematical and systematic approach to investing. Today we’ll review exactly how to do that, then health insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

So…what’s the REAL secret to stock market success?  We’d all love to think that there is just one secret but in the real world it comes down to avoiding big mistakes, avoiding hunches, having a logical strategy, and buying stocks that the big institutional investors have their eyes on.   The more you listen to experienced investment managers who have attained a high level of success, the one common thread is that they keep most of their money in stocks being considered or bought by the big “institutional investors.” The big mutual funds, pensions, and insurance companies are the institutional investors  considered to be the “BIG FISH” or even the killer WHALES on Wall Street.

For more than eight decades, the Social Security program has played a critical role in providing a financial foundation for our nation’s retired workers. Most people  build their  long term retirement plan around the certainty of a steady check from Social Security.    According to the Centers for Budget and Policy Priorities, the system singlehandedly pulls more than 15 million retirees out of poverty every year. It’s safe to say that without it, our nation would be in a constant state of recession.  Which is why it is alarming that the program faces serious financial hurdles in the years ahead. In fact, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Social Security retirement fund could face depletion as early as 2030, jut ten short years from now. Steve and I will review the details and the facts.

The smart way to build retirement wealth going into 2020 and beyond, is with a smarter financial bucketing plan to segment and sequester your capital into clear and distinct financial buckets, each with its own specific task and time deadline. Each dollar should have a job to do, and be good at doing it.  Traditionally, bonds were the tool of choice for protecting a portfolio from market loss while providing competitive income. That is no longer the case. Bonds today are paying in the range of eight tenths of one percent for ten years. In other words with a half million in the safest bond fund at Vanguard, you will make about four thousand dollars for an entire YEAR.  Steve will tell you about a new solution that you won’t want to miss.

Researchers at Yale and MIT have completed Nobel Laureate research on potential retirement outcomes for today’s retirees. The reason the picture is not pretty for many Baby Boomers, even those with million dollar portfolios, is just what you might expect: bond interest rates are too low to live on and relying on the stock market for income withdrawals simply is not mathematically sustainable. They point out you could need your money MOST when markets are down, causing  accelerated depletion of your savings.  Face it, stocks are not for income–but can anyone seriously consider retiring on a BOND paying less than one or two percent, with inflation headed to three or four percent one day?       Coming up, we’ll review a simple three step plan for getting your retirement income locked in so you can retire and STAY retired once and for all!  ..an important show today you don’t want to miss…MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Most investors, especially in or nearing retirement, seek to reduce risk while growing capital prudently in the stock market. Gains are nice, but large drawdowns are sickening, especially in retirement when you don’t have an income stream from a full-time job and time is no longer on your side.    
When time IS on your side, and because most bear markets tend to last only six months to two years at the most, you are able to rebuild the value of your account simply by staying put, and not rushing for the exit. FACT:  The only people who lost in 2008 and 2009 were those who sold at the bottom. The market has some room to run according to experts, but we all want to keep a good share of money OUT of harm’s way. But are bonds the answer for the safe money side of your plan? Today, we’ll examine why Warren Buffett says that bonds are a terrible investment.

The millennial generation–and a growing number of mature investors–have begun to see the world a different way. They want to invest to match their world view–even if it is not the most profitable way to invest. Socially responsible investments (aka SRIs) are an area of the financial world that is rapidly expanding. In fact, a report by Morgan Stanley’s Institute for Sustainable Investing suggests that Americans in their 20s and 30s are now twice as likely as the general investor population to focus on Socially Responsible investments. This is no small trend–there are now trillions of dollars invested in this arena. The REAL question is, should YOU invest here?

One of the most impactful–but least discussed parts– of the recently released Joe Biden tax plan is the elimination of the “step-up-in-basis” upon death. Many American families have enjoyed the ability to pass on appreciated assets like the family home, real estate, and stocks held at brokerages to the next generation without any capital gains tax.  Whether you have built up a nice stock portfolio or paid off your home and hope to leave it to your kids, Biden’s plan would eliminate that privilege and impose a capital gains tax upon.  But wait, there’s more! His plan also makes gains taxable at the ordinary income rate, rather than the lower capital gains rate. We’ll review the Tax Foundation’s analysis. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

Nothing is a bargain in this world unless it serves a purpose and helps you achieve a goal.   Managing your own money to save a fee can work, but we all know the do-it-yourself approach seems to work BEST when markets are RISING! Rising markets tend to lift ALL boats.   As the saying goes, in a bull market, EVERYONE  is a genius!  But the real measure of how well your portfolio is being managed is not so much when markets are UP, but more when markets fall flat and then reverse. How do you KNOW if your money is in the right place? Well, lets put it this way. If you find yourself FEARING the next bear market rather than relishing the idea, your money is probably allocated poorly. Today, we’ll review the FOUR KEY QUESTIONS you should be asking yourself right now, and how to arrive at clear answers!  MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!!

Many retired investors today are hoping, waiting, and praying for interest rates on bonds to go up so they can retire in safety. According to economic analysis by a growing number of economists, they may be hoping, praying, and waiting a very long time.  Deflationary trends  have gripped the world forcing interest rates to near zero, and even below zero. Low rates help borrowers but hurt savers. One would think with all the money being printed that IN-flation would be the problem, not DEE-flation. But that’s not the case. Retirees are facing the hardest investment decisions of their lives right now. Imagine: a million dollars in a ten year treasury bond will only pay you around SEVEN thousand dollars a year! You heard right, and you simply can’t retire on that!  Today we’ll analyze the problem, and define the most viable solutions.

We all know the difference between a mutual fund, a pension, and a savings account . You don’t spend too much time thinking about what a savings account IS, but rather, what it DOES for you. The same with a pension. A pension has one purpose: to pay you an income you can never outlive. Easy stuff. Mutual funds have typically one main purpose: to help you try to grow your money, but with more risk than a bank account or a pension. So, what is an annuity? Well, it can combine all of these features in one instrument. Today, we’ll break down the basics of annuities to help make them simple and easy to understand.

Most investors in or near retirement are looking for three main things for their nest eggs: Number 1) ample liquidity, number 2) permanent, worry-free reliable income to cover all expenses, and number 3) an effective and systematic way to grow money in the stock market over time. Mainly, they don’t want to lose half their money to the next bear market, and they want to be certain they will never run short of income. Real wealth consists of permanent ample cash flow, not just piles of money that can be lost. That’s why more investors are making life more simple, and bucketing their retirement money into a combination of dividend stocks and high-quality Next Generation income annuities.
