Of the top 10 causes of death globally,  Alzheimer’s is  the only one that can’t currently be cured, slowed down, or prevented– at least not yet. The disease manifests in different ways, with some patients living 20 years after diagnosis, but most often in the range of  four to eight years. Although 80% of those with the disease are 75 or over, Alzheimer’s typically emerges in midlife, remarkably–20 to 30 years before symptoms like memory loss or troubles with language appear. You can have it and not know it.  One prominent researcher told Barrons:  “Alzheimer’s is a disease of greater prevalence and greater lethality than Covid-19”   He went on to say:  “This is an ongoing pandemic.  Its cost to America in terms of direct medical costs is significantly higher than cancer.” There are some treatment breakthroughs…we’ll tell you about them and then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A fact filled show you don’t want to miss…MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

The pandemic crash put an estimated 400,000 small businesses OUT of business. Millions of people lost their jobs and may of them are still looking for work. Many sectors of the economy were hurt, others had banner years.  Even now,  analysts refer to a new category of stock: “recovery” or “reopening” stocks. In other words, companies whose businesses will begin flourishing again once people can actually enter crowded theaters, stadiums, cruise ships, and airplanes.  Barron’s Laurence Strauss reports that there is a growing interest in U.S. dividend paying stocks, with an industry-wide consensus that dividends will rise more than usual in 2021. We’ll review his report and the reasons why you should be looking into top drawer dividend GROWTH stocks right now. The timing may be just right. Then Steve reviews the stock selection process for the Black Diamond Dividend Growth Portfolio. A fact-filled and timely show you won’t want to miss…. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

It turns out the pandemic was bad for Americans’ health for more reasons than one. As people spent more time indoors, a mountain of scientific research is concluding that spending time in nature is critical to health– and–increases longevity. That means being in fresh air, under trees and away from cars and concrete—and doing it on a regular basis. And, no, the Peloton doesn’t count.  The research comes from Stanford University and Japan’s Nippon Medical school.  For example, spending time in the woods—a practice the Japanese call “forest bathing”—is strongly linked to lower blood pressure, a calmer heart rate, decreased stress hormones and decreased anxiety, along with alleviation of depression and fatigue.   Scientists have found plenty of evidence that getting out in nature IS good for you… and if it can’t add years to your life, it may very well add life to your years. We have the surprising data from a Wall Street Journal report for you and then Medicare and Health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.  A fascinating show you certainly don’t want to miss…MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

Many investors believe that a decline in the value of the U.S. dollar is always a bad thing, but the other side of the equation is that a weak dollar presents several profit opportunities that don’t exist when the dollar is strong.  It’s natural to want a strong– rather than a weak– dollar, but there are actually benefits to a dollar that is trading weaker in relation to other currencies. When the dollar got super strong in 2018, we saw a major correction.  A weak dollar does some very helpful things for U.S. consumers and can even result in more factories being built here and more jobs for Americans. How do you think China built itself up? They’re experts at keeping their currency low.

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!!!

Your job as an investor—or the job of the person you hire to manage your money—is to optimize gains, while minimizing losses.  Sounds easy, but today, you need a strategy built for the low interest rate environment of the 2020’s, not the 1990s.  Well-chosen stocks can be long-term sources of wealth creation, just like well-located real estate. This is true even if you buy at what seems like the worst possible time. For example, if you invested in an S&P 500 index fund in early October 2007, the next couple of years would have felt awful.  If you were still contributing to a 401k, however,  it turned out to be really good news. Your steady contributions kept buying more units of mutual funds at lower prices.  Even buying at the so called “wrong time” just before the 2008 crash, HIGH QUALITY  stocks delivered terrific gains by 2020—upwards of 300 percent—by just staying the course and not panicking. That said, in retirement you will be unemployed for 30 years or so. Therefore, a properly built financial plan will separate income capital from growth capital into a Smarter Bucketing system to protect against crashes. Today, we’ll get into the fundamentals of putting together a rock solid financial plan…for the LONG HAUL.  Don’t miss it….MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

How well have you done with your investments over your lifetime? You’ve had some good years where you got twenty percent or so perhaps. But, like the rest of us, you have had some STINKERS. Most investors lose money an average of three years out ten. That’s why averaging ten percent is so hard. Most investors also buy stocks or mutual funds haphazardly–without a clear strategy. That’s another proven way to hurt your overall returns. How long does it take to DOUBLE your money? Using the Rule of 72, money doubles every eighteen years at four percent compounded, it doubles every twelve years at six percent compounded, and every nine years at eight percent compounded.

So, what’s going on with these crazy markets again?  Can you spell “robot”?  Every time volatility returns to the market, some investors appear to be shocked that Wall Street is not as safe as an index annuity or a bank CD!   Face it.  Stocks go up… and stocks go down…then up again. They always have and always will. In fact, it’s because they DO go up and down that you actually have a chance of making good money. If there were no risk, there would be no way to make a gain.  So, how do you play a volatile market today?  Three words:  “quality, quality, quality.” Buy companies, not stocks, and only buy companies that make real money! Today, we’ll explain in detail what’s happening with algorithmic trading right now, how it is at the root of these big swings, but more important:  exactly what to do to keep building and protecting YOUR retirement money, the Smart Way.  Don’t miss it….MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

When we hear about sudden, massive gains in speculative stocks like Tesla and GameStop—the temptation is to feel like you somehow “missed out”.  But most investors of retirement age are not ready to put a heavy load of their money into one or two stocks to try to make a killing. As an investor, you need to decide what your priorities are, what your realistic goals are, and how much risk you are willing to take to achieve those goals.  If you’ve already accumulated five hundred thousand to a million dollars or more, it’s likely that you’re not ready to lay it ALL down on one stock in hopes that it doubles within ninety days.  You’re more likely to place an emphasis on PRESERVING what you’ve already made before you take big chances– with big chunks of your money. In fact, the real reason you’ve accumulated money is that you’ve mostly avoided silly risks along the way.  Instead, you kept your eyes on the prize:   a comfortable retirement funded by diversified, solid investments that make sense. Today, we’ll review a smart strategy for doing just that.

It’s getting harder and harder to retire on a million dollars anymore. Statistics show there are now more than fourteen million households in America with a net worth of a million or more. They should be relaxed and calm about their futures, right?  Nothing to worry about… right?  Well, not so much.  They see a stock market that keeps rising– and they wonder when it might stop. They see interest rates on treasury bonds so low, they could never hope to take an income without spending down all principal. And, They worry about a progressive, severe left turn in politics where there are seemingly no limits to borrowing and printing money.  It all adds up to this:  the old fashioned method of retiring on a stock and bond portfolio–without worrying– is officially dead.

In January of last year, employees of Novavax Inc. met at a local Maryland bar to discuss how they might salvage their careers. For decades, the small biotech had tried to develop a big selling vaccine, with no success. The company had enough cash to survive only another six months or so and its shares traded under $4, with a market value of $127 million dollars.  Today, Novavax is advancing toward authorization of a huge Covid-19 vaccine. Scientists believe that, if cleared, it could be one of the best, offering key possible advantages over its competitors. Some early data suggest the Novavax shot may be one of the first shown to stem asymptomatic spread of the coronavirus. It’s vaccine does not require freezing, another big advantage.

One of the biggest beneficiaries of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the cloud computing industry. All sorts of companies in every category—not to mention individual users– have been increasingly adopting cloud services for storing sensitive data. It’s a trend that can only get bigger. 
Cloud storage has been a growing industry for some time, but the coronavirus really accelerated the trend in 2020 and 2021. As people work from home and do more of their shopping online, the demand for cloud services continues to grow.  Individual stocks and ETFs that focus on companies providing cloud services did especially well in 2020. Their returns have varied, but double-digit and even tri ple-digit returns were seen last year. With cloud demand expected to remain strong,  solid growth is already happening in 2021. Cloud computing saves big corporations and small businesses both money and time. Even in a recession, Cloud Computing is service that grows in demand.

Interest rates on  U.S. treasury bonds—once a mainstay of retirement planning—remain so low,  that almost no one can retire on them anymore.  Yields remain under 1.5% for TEN YEAR treasury’s.  This mathematical reality is causing a huge challenge for retiring investors who want to lower their risk and stop worrying about their money. Bond investors are so starved for yield right now that they are actually turning to twenty and thirty year bonds issued by America’s Colleges and Universities—which are struggling due to Covid 19 and cancellation of athletics.  Today, we’ll review a surprising report on buyers lining up to buy these bonds that may shock you.

What’s the smart way to allocate money in retirement?  Should all of your money be in the stock market? After all, it is climbing nicely,  and the experts say there are bullish factors ranging from the end of the pandemic, to a few more multi-trillion dollar stimulus packages on the way.  But just because the market shows an uptrend, does that mean a person who’s worked and saved for thirty years should keep all of their life savings with the Wizards of Wall Street?  We all know how that story can end. Retirement should be a beginning, NOT an end. Financially speaking, it should be the time when you can finally relax.  For most people, the goal is not to see how rich you can get —  it’s to see how GOOD  you can feel about how your money is invested and in simply living life on your own terms—doing what you want to do, when you want to do it. And, that confidence needs to be based on knowledge and smart planning, not just wishing and hoping. Today, we’ll review just how you go about that.

It is looking more likely that the U.S. will be swimming in Covid-19 vaccine doses by the summer. That’s good news for all of us, as long as the Biden Harris administration keeps getting shots in arms.  Vaccines have long been a sleepy little corner of the pharmaceutical industry, dominated by a handful of companies that sell billions of dollars worth of vaccines a year, unperturbed by upstarts. The competition for market leadership in vaccines is about to get nasty experts say, with the usual giants Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer in the game along with Astra Zeneca and Sanofi.

Joe Biden, as recently as 2019, is on record saying that he didn’t see the nation-state of China as a major threat—economically or from a spying standpoint. When pressed on whether China was ready to overtake the U.S. economically, he ridiculed the idea, and finished his statement with the phrase “Come on, man.”  Regarding spying he said, “they aren’t bad folks, FOLKS..”   It’s surprising, then,  that someone with a security clearance as high as the vice president of the United States would either be that naïve, or that deceptive.  Bloomberg reports that as far back as 2010, during the Obama-Biden administration, the U.S. Department of Defense found thousands of its computer servers sending military network data TO China — the result of source-code hidden in chips that handled the machines’ startup process.

Because of the advances in annuity engineering over the past five years, the demand for a newer form of annuity has steadily risen. No longer an afterthought, specific types of annuities have taken center stage for smart investors looking to nail down preservation and income. Why? Because pensions are being phased out, and interest rates on bonds are stuck near two hundred year lows. Once upon a time, a million dollars in treasury bonds would pay a retiree seventy thousand dollars a year or more, guaranteed.  Today, that same ten year treasury bond is yielding less than one-and-a-half percent, meaning you’d be tying up your money for ten years– getting less than FIFTEEN thousand dollars a year. That’s why bonds, not annuities, are suddenly the afterthought. Who could think of building their retirement around one percent bonds?

Investment mistakes are very easy to make, even when you take a logical approach to the market.

That’s why you offload that task to a professional. But many investment managers were caught off guard by the 2020 election.  Many thought it was logical that if Joe Biden won the election, the market would decline.

There are two major categories for stock investors to choose from:  Growth Stocks and Value Stocks.  As the name implies, Growth Stocks are all about supply and demand. The price of what you own will rise on the basis of how many other people WANT what you HAVE. There are no dividends.   The price-to-earnings ratio may not look like a bargain. The company may not even HAVE any earnings!  Buta great growth stock can make you money if you select the right one at approximately the right time, and hold it long enough to see capital gains. Tesla is an obvious example of a pure growth stock. Value stocks on the other hand—also as the name implies—are focused on business fundamentals, in other words intrinsic value. Is the company making money? How much am I paying to participate in the profits.  These are the questions VALUE investors ask.  Value stocks are not the “go-go” variety that you “date” briefly. They are the ones you consider “marrying,”  if you’re the marrying kind.

Results of several data driven studies have come to the same conclusion:  The highest happiness readings in the world among retired persons, come from those people who own pensions. They scored 7.8 on a 10-point scale. Pensions that provide guaranteed income for life have become increasingly rare around the world, as employers have shifted away from defined benefits plans to defined CONTRIBUTION plans.  In addition to owning a pension, retirees who are surrounded by their family and friends and own a home, also tested higher on the happiness scale. In every study of its kind,  according to articles published in Time Magazine and The Wall Street Journal,  there was one consistency —those who have a substantial check coming in every month for the rest of their lives, unconditionally and without market risk— are happier people.  They also live longer, studies show.
