The two largest assets of most middle and upper middle-class households are the family home and the 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan. These assets form the core of almost every American family’s financial security.    How important are these assets? They are so important that homeowners are REQUIRED to carry insurance on their houses by most mortgage lenders, if not by state law. And, when you buy your home, title insurance is required. Why? Because the outcomes of these transactions cannot be in question.  What if you could insure that you would never again take an investment loss due to the stock market falling, and in the same asset insure that you and your spouse would always have a monthly income that would never go down—like a pension? There is a unique form of principal secure retirement annuity available now that can do just that, plus much more, without all the fees of variable annuities. Steve  will review it in detail.

As you get closer to the day when your salary goes away… and everything you’ve accumulated up to this point has to be the source of ALL your future paydays… your decisions need to become more accurate. You can’t afford the mistakes you made thirty years ago.  On an increasing basis, the news literature in the financial world states that you will need more than a million dollars to retire and to make sure you don’t go broke.   A million is a nice sum of money, but unless you properly diversify, allocate, and conserve it, you run the risk of seeing it get cut in half by a combination of market declines, income withdrawals, RMDs, taxes, politics, fees, inflation, and poor timing when it comes to retirement. Today, we”ll tell you the story of Doug and Diane, who found out the hard way. Then Medicare Specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.

As we get reminded often, women have a better chance of making it to age 100 than men — in fact, 82% of the 53,364 centenarians alive in 2010 were female. There are even more today.   The ratio of females to males age 100 remains pretty steady–it is about 80 percent women. Hence the statistic:   eighty percent of MEN die MARRIED, while eighty percent of WOMEN… die single.  The big problem for women is that they may spend ten years or longer on their own after their husbands pass–at a time when they may lack the skill and desire to make big money decisions.  It’s been found that Baby Boomers’ number one financial fear is running out of money while still in their eighties and women fear it even more than men. We’ll see why that fear is completely justified today, and then health insurance expert SHELLEY GRANDIDGE joins us.   A very 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. Today, we’ll review the real secrets of raising your average rate of return and how get a guaranteed bonus of ten percent on a safe fixed income vehicle, with a GUARANTEED growth rate of 7 percent COMPOUNDED.  Then health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

Adults over the age of 50 manage an increasing share of the wealth in the United States. Risky investment decisions that are made as people age may have effects on both financial markets –AND individuals in later life.  FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Association, performed an in-depth study recently to assess how many older Americans—those over 58 with far less time to recover from a market shock than younger investors– were taking on TOO MUCH risk. And for those TAKING  too much risk using standard measurements, they wanted to know WHY.

We typically don’t give much thought to inflation, but over long periods, it can wreak havoc with the purchasing power of our dollars. Over many years, inflation has averaged about 3% annually, though there have been times when it has been very high and times when it has been very low. In 2015, for example, inflation averaged close to 0% or less, while it was 6% in 1982 and more than 13% in 1980.  Even at 2 or 3 percent, something that costs $100 dollars now would run you about $243 dollars in 30 years. Today we’ll peek at some popular products you bought back in the late 1988 when George Bush beat Michael Dukakis for president, and it may really open your eyes!

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.

Today on Mastering Money, a very special guest joins us–Chris Hill, long time Wizard for the Motley Fool and host of the Motley Fool Money Show.  Steve and Chris will share views on the market.       –But first…..Very few investors would consider basing their entire life savings around owning just one stock. The reason is obvious. Even with the best company on the planet, times change, things go wrong, competitors emerge and the stock price can fall.   At first glance, some investors believe diversification simply means SPREADING your risk. 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.

Historically, we’ve always referred to the traditional sources of retirement income as a three-legged stool, composed of:
1. Government entitlement programs (Social Security and Medicare)…2. Personal savings and investments …and , 3. Employer-sponsored defined benefit plans like pensions.  In the past, retirees could typically count on ALL three sources for retirement income roughly divided into thirds. With this traditional scenario, both the government and employer-sponsored plans were considered predictable, reliable income sources that may also be adjusted for inflation. So two thirds of your plan for retirement was set. Only one-third was the responsibility of the individual. Today, TWO thirds of the responsibility is yours, and the other leg–Social Security–is getting a little loose in the screws. Today we’ll examine how COVID 19 may affect your Social Security, and then Medicare specialist SHELLEY GRANDIDGE joins us for a show you don’t want to miss!  MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Older Americans are selling off the stock market, slowly but relentlessly…. to junior generations.  According to CNBC, Baby boomers own an outsized helping of the market and are constantly reducing it–due to RMDs and other factors.  This is a process that is non-stop because 250,000 boomers turn 72 every ninety days. Analysts point out it will have an effect on  supply and demand for equities in the short, medium, and long runs.  Millennials, now the largest generation by population, lack the financial wherewithal to pick up the slack.  How will this long term drain, expected to accelerate over the next five and ten years, affect your investments?  What changes to your current financial plan might you make to make sure your retirement is not impacted?  We’ll lay out all the statistics, with some very timely strategy choices you’ll want to know more about.

While Joe Biden will undoubtedly take bows for the economic recovery taking place in 2021, objective onlookers know that Biden’s first six months and his ideas have not created one job. In fact, Biden killed thousands of pipeline jobs. As Trumponomics comes to a close and Bidenomics begins, investors don’t really need to predict which set of economic policies will work the best to stimulate the economy—at least not for a while yet. Experts say it will take six to twelve months or longer to begin to see the effects of most of Biden’s economic moves. In the meantime, whose policies will end up looking better when history is the judge–Trump, or Biden? Most logical thinkers know that reining in job-killing government restrictions, lowering taxes for both job-creating corporations and tax paying Americans, and creating trade deals that bring and KEEP more factories right here in America, is a more sure path to long term economic success for OUR nation as a whole. But logic is not always the sure path to making money in the stock market. You need to know where the big boys are going, like Goldman Sachs, the Fed, and JP Morgan.

Although many people DON’T think about owning life insurance, many, many people do. Life insurance has evolved from just a few choices in the old days, like whole life and straight term, to more advanced and flexible forms of Universal Life insurance which can be tailored to fit your needs for tax advantaged  retirement income that does not trigger taxes on Social Security, leaving a tax free legacy, and tax planning goals.  Unlike the policies of old, today’s next generation of cash value life insurance can deliver the goods on multiple benefits with the same dollar. For example, quite a number of cash value life insurance policies on the market can double as a LONG TERM CARE funding vehicle. You get triple the benefits with the same insurance dollar.
