    No one investing strategy fits all people, and no investment strategy is right for every investor at every age! Each person has different reasons for investing--- different goals, differing time horizons-- and varying degrees of comfort when it comes to RISK.  That’s why its so important to define and articulate your own parameters. You want a clear vision BEFORE you put your money at risk.  Common sense, as with most things in life, should always prevail the closer you are to retirement age. Today, Steve will outline a proven strategy that would have increased income and net capital in both the 2000 and 2008 crashes.

    Really, really GOOD investors are always thinking ahead. When times are good-- and there is no recession in sight--what do you suppose is on their mind?  Well…the next recession of course!    That's because if all you focus on are the obvious and current trends, you will never position yourself ahead of the crowd—which is the secret to doing really well with your investments!  Dividend growth stocks are often classified as recession-resistant. Because they keep paying investors to own them, wealth can still be built during recessions if you own stocks that keep INCREASING their dividends. Today, Steve will demonstrate just how to do that with the IQ Wealth Black Diamond Dividend Strategy. You don't want to miss today's show  MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! &nbs […]

    A growing number of Millennials with six-figure incomes are trying to retire by the age of forty. Its called the FIRE movement, Financial Independence, Retire Early. Suze Orman says they're crazy and estimates they will need at least 5 MILLION dollars set aside to retire for the next fifty to fifty-five years. Which brings us to the question: what's YOUR number? How much do you need to retire comfortably? The conventional wisdom is that you should aim to have a nest egg of $1 million to $1.5 million dollars Or about 10 to 12 times your current income, but new research has come out pointing to the fact that with proper planning you may be able to retire on less. Steve will have some details for you on that. A fact-filled show you don't miss today MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

They also face higher healthcare and long-term care costs BECAUSE of longevity. And with their longevity comes a longe period of time during which inflation, disability, and tax hikes can reduce their savings. Here’s another grim statistic: eighty percent of men die married. Eighty percent of WOMEN die single or widowed! Today on Mastering Money, we'll outline the unique challenges that women face in retirement plus some solutions.

    Every time interest rates are low, investors begin to make mistakes. Their desire for safety, yield, and liquidity—all in one asset—almost ALWAYS winds up in disaster, or at the very least, disappointment. With bond rates low, the fear of further rising rates has bond investors wanting to avoid losses there. Bond investors have been losing money for six years. For example, the Vanguard Total Bond fund is below its 2012 level. Bond funds are not safe, and they don’t pay very much income. Which brings us to a breed of cat known as “floating rate senior bank loan funds.” Be very careful here! Floating rate bank loan funds are made up of loans BY banks to smaller, poor-credit corporations. Here is a warning: If an advisor is recommending a product known as floating rate funds or your money is already in one, you don't want to miss today's show. We'll expose the risks, and it may shock you. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

    Today there is a 23% chance that at least one member of a 65-year-old couple will live to age 95. And with improving health care, even more, people will live to 95 and beyond in the future, according to the Society of Actuaries. Indeed, a recent analysis of data from more than 30 developed countries reveals that death rates among people older than 80 are still falling. An Ernst & Young study stated: “Households approaching retirement to face an environment where the possibility of living to age 90 or 100 and the volatility of inflation and investment returns put them at HIGH risk of outliving their assets. Today, we'll reveal more of the findings of Ernst & Young and Wharton School and how it may affect your retirement. Don't miss it MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

    Most people would love to find one investment that took care of all of their financial needs. In today’s turbulent world, that’s a tall order! There is no single investment today—anywhere—that will give you everything you want all in one asset—high returns, high liquidity, with no or low risk. This is why diversification is so important. Time is also important. Time is that overlooked aspect of investing that gets in the way of clear judgment when making our investment choices. What if you could put TIME on your SIDE with your investments? What if you could lower your risk, increase your income, and grow your money more predictably? A growing number of retirees are doing just that, and today Steve will lay out the strategy. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

    When markets are flying high, investors don't think about SAFETY for their IRA and 401k rollovers. Being human, they're ready to let the good times roll! After all, what could go wrong? ….Then suddenly, the markets get shaky. That’s when retirees and near-retirees get nervous! For most of the twentieth century, American workers enjoyed defined benefit pension plans rather than 401ks. There wasn’t really a focus on the rate of return they were making, but rather on the income they would receive in retirement. They had a clear, bottom-line goal to shoot for-- that was guaranteed. Today, many smart retirees are choosing newer forms of retirement annuities for their IRA rollovers that can act like both a pension AND an investment!

    There is a huge difference between the way amateur dividend investors and professional dividend investors select stocks. Amateurs look for the highest dividend they can find. Professionals know that to be a serious money trap.  One specialized area of dividend investing is known as Dividend GROWTH investing, where you select only stocks that GROW their dividends every year, resulting in a much higher dividend yield on cost over time. Steve will explain that in detail. Then health insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. You don't want to miss today's show...MASTERING MONEY is on the air! […]

    If you have significant money in stocks, and are in or near retirement,  it can be emotionally gut-wrenching to watch the market lose over a trillion dollars worth of value in a matter of weeks—which is exactly what happened in the weeks following the U.S. mid-term elections.  It became clear that big institutional investment managers responsible for trillions of dollars of investor money,  voted “NO” on the outcome of the mid-terms. Institutional money managers don’t have time for political fights. Rather than taking a stand politically, they will simply TAKE PROFITS --especially if they fear pro-business policies could be reversed! Today, learn the relationship between politics and Wall Street sentiment, and how to adjust your portfolio for success.  You don't want to miss today's show...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!   &nbs […]
