For worry free income, preservation and indexed growth in retirement with no market losses and no management fees, today’s NEXT GENERATION uncapped retirement index annuities with income riders are becoming the asset of choice for 401k and IRA rollovers.   Once upon a time, government bonds could provide the security and financial peace of mind required in retirement. In fact, “living off your savings” was the time-honored approach to retirement.  But when bank CDs and bonds are paying zero or near zero, and that’s your only plan, you are no longer LIVING off savings….You’re just spending down your principal haphazardly!  You are just paying your principal back to yourself, with little or no interest, and no guarantee of what happens when you run out. Can anyone seriously consider retiring on a bond or bank account  paying less than one or two percent, with inflation headed to three or four percent annually one day? Today, we’ll show you how to avoid poor retirement income planning  A power-packed show you don’t want to miss!   MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

The demand for annuities is strong despite the desperate attempts at unfounded criticism by promoters of front-loaded mutual funds– like radio host Dave Ramsey, and elite TV billionaires like Ken Fisher– who seem to think they are smarter than you! As we have said many times, Ramsey has done noble work helping younger middle earning Americans get out of debt. We applaud him.  But his advice for retirees has been called into question by many in the financial industry.   Every year, for the past ten years, an average of $200 billion dollars in annuities have been acquired. Memo to Dave Ramsey and Ken Fisher:  SOMEBODY is buying them, and most of them are pretty darn SMART!!   We’ll review why annuities are so often used for 40k rollovers, then Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. A big show you don’t want to miss  MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!!

Although market timing and momentum investing sound good, especially in the short run, investing in stocks that pay increasing dividends every year can be a proven, powerful, and DURABLE way to grow retirement wealth with less stress, less bother—AND–with the power of mathematics on your side. Only a salesman trying to sell you a hot-stock strategy could deny the documented, long term success of investing and RE-investing the dividends of companies which consistently increase their dividends every single year without fail, and are properly positioned within their industry and sectors. With a dividend strategy, you welcome declining markets, you don’t fear them! Today, Steve has the exact details you don’t want to miss on the art and science of dividend GROWTH investing… (PLUS a special feature on the LITHIUM supply chain that may shock you.)  You don’t want to miss today’s show.

One of the key challenges for amateur investors is the attraction to RISING PRICES. When the prices of most consumer goods such as gasoline or vegetables rise, people tend to either cut back or find a substitute. However, with financial assets, the opposite seems true. Many investors are attracted to a stock whose price has risen more than one whose price has fallen. This tendency often results in poor investment performance. It is difficult for an individual investor to effectively construct and maintain a portfolio that is properly diversified, minimizes fees and taxes, avoids overlapping assets, and stays in its lane without emotion. THAT’S why in retirement, hiring a professional to manage your assets with a clear WRITTEN strategy is so wise. Today, we’ll review the most practical and pragmatic approach to your investments,  then Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. Don’t miss it….MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

Over the past few years we’ve seen a lot of publicity and news about the advent of the “robo advisor.” These “robo advisors” are not like the robots that can clean your house or perform surgical procedures. The term  “Robo advisor” is probably a misnomer. The accurate description would be a  “low-cost, automated asset ALLOCATION program.”   A robo allocation system creates an asset allocation from data it is fed by humans. It then makes trades via algorithm. Ironically robo advisors base their allocations 100% on past performance and  thirty year AVERAGES from the past! The problem: A thirty year average could be meaningless when it comes to navigating the NEXT five or ten years. We’ll review what you need to know,  Don’t miss today’s show, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

One of the simplest ways for companies to communicate financial well-being and shareholder value is to say “the dividend check is in the mail.” Dividends, those cash distributions that many companies pay out regularly from their earnings to their stockholders, send a clear, powerful message about future prospects and performance.  A company’s willingness and ability to pay steady dividends over time – and better yet–its power to INCREASE them each year–goes a long way towards communicating its fundamental strength and sustainability to shareholders.  Then, insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.

What if you had a magic calculator that could tell you just when to get into the market and when to get out? That would certainly be a popular gift item, but there’s one problem. No such thing exists! That doesn’t stop MILLIONS of people with money in the stock market from trying to TIME IT. JP Morgan’s new retirement guide points out what many researchers have already discovered: if you are out of the market at the wrong times, sitting on the sidelines, you will destroy your overall returns. In fact, if you missed only the TEN best days of the market over the past ten YEARS, your return would have been cut in HALF. If you missed the twenty best days, your return would be negative!! Find out how to build a REAL strategy with your investments today in a fact filled Market Intel Segment. Don’t miss it, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

In case you hadn’t noticed, the future is getting just a ‘tad’ more unpredictable every day. That’s why protecting your core capital and securing your retirement income are such high priorities.   Smart people are seeing the need for more certainty going forward. And…many are turning to NEXT GENERATION annuities to meet that need. Once you reach age fifty or sixty, why WOULDN’T you want a floor under your money?   Annuities are not for young investors aged 20 to 40. They are for those who want a retirement that can weather the worst of economies, without losing a penny or missing a beat.  The key benefit that modern day annuities may provide a retired person is a contractual guarantee of principal and income—regardless of market conditions.There are four different types of annuities, and due to current low interest rates and volatile markets, THREE of those types may not be recommended.  Today, Steve will review exactly WHICH annuities are leading the pack, and which might be right for you. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.  A power packed and timely show you DON’T want to miss…MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!!
