    Should Investors be wary of automated robo-advice online? According to research published in the Wall Street Journal, people tend to think suggestions from algorithms are always more “objective” than advice from humans. But...they’re wrong according to noted researcher Dr. Nazil Packin with the Zicklin School of Business in New York City.   Her Wall Street Journal-published-report points out that many of us routinely—and even BLINDLY—rely on the advice of ALGORITHMS  in all aspects of our lives, from choosing the fastest route to the airport to deciding how to invest our retirement savings. ….But should we trust algorithms as much as we do? Research suggests maybe we shouldn’t, especially when it comes to high-stakes financial decisions. Today we'll review the surprising research findings from the Journal with advice on building retirement wealth the SMART way. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

    The explosion of products and services that have become available in the financial marketplace today are enough to bewilder even the most educated expert. But there are very few vehicles that have generated as much controversy in both public and professional forums as variable annuities. Variable annuities are a blend of higher risk investment with contractual income guarantees. There are pros and cons. There are good times to own one, and there are bad times. While fixed, fixed index and immediate annuities have zero fee deductions for management and servicing-- and very few moving parts-- the opposite is true with variable annuities. Variable annuities are built with MANY moving parts and can have a remarkably high fee structure. Today, we'll look under the hood and examine what you need to know about variable annuities, plus three key tips on building retirement wealth the SMART way.  Don't miss today's show, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

    The Federal Reserve has reversed course and will likely be keeping interest rates low for a while. Good news for borrowers, bad for savers and retirees. Bond interest rates are at one hundred year lows. Once upon a time,  a million dollars in treasury bonds would pay a retiree seventy thousand dollars a year, guaranteed for ten to thirty years.  Today, that same ten-year treasury bond is paying under two and a half percent, meaning you would be tying up your money for ten years at a measly twenty-three thousand dollars a year. Today, learn which annuities can still pay you an income of seven percent for life, without risking a penny in the stock market and while remaining in control of your principal. Then health and Medicare insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. A big show you don't want to miss. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

    Radio guru Dave Ramsey has come under fire of late as it has been learned that the financial advisors he refers his seven million listeners to-- sell upfront loaded mutual funds! These front-loaded funds charge customers an upfront fee to pay a commission to the advisor, which is deducted directly from the investors principal--while guaranteeing nothing to the client in the way of principal protection or reliable retirement income. Mr. Ramsey is justifiably recognized for his work at helping young people get out of debt and pay off mortgages, but his RETIREMENT investing advice has been called into question by sources like Money Magazine. Today, we'll provide a mini-course on mutual funds from front load to no-load, then Steve reviews five tips for building retirement wealth the SMART WAY. Mastering Money is on the air!! […]

    In 1875, the American Express Company established the first pension fund for employees in the United States. Due to favorable tax laws, pension plans quickly became a staple of the American workforce. By 1980, 35.9 million workers, or 46% of all private sector workers and almost all government workers retired on pensions. In 1978, however, the U.S. Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1978, which resulted in the first 401(k) plan. Since then, pensions are getting fewer and farther between. And many of the plans remaining, are suddenly on shaky ground. According to the Wall Street Journal, the long bull market has failed to fix the shortfalls. Today we'll review a Wall Street Journal report on why it's happening and how it's happening, then Steve reviews today's best paying annuities. Don't miss today's show.

    Historically, there’s a 91% chance of the market giving you a positive return over any particular 10 year period.  Here’s the problem: the 91 percent of positive ten year periods have come AFTER recessions and poor markets. The worst ten year periods have come after long bull market expansions, much like we are in now.   That’s an important thing to consider if when you are deciding how much of your money should be in the market, and how much OUT of the market--especially if you are of retirement age.  We all know bull markets don’t last forever, but how should you be allocating your money right now to both keep your money safer AND to have the opportunity to grow your dividends and future income? We'll talk about it today on a show you don't want to miss. MASTERING MONEY is on the air! […]

    The stock market has entered unchartered territory.  Interest rates on bonds are too low to live on. Politics is a mess. China wants to take over the world, and if they aren’t stopped, they just might do it by the time Baby Boomers are entering assisted living. Democrats want to spend trillions that we don’t have on climate change and making the switch to one hundred percent green energy—even though the world’s most populous countries—China and India—don’t really care about going green.   Newsflash—if THEY don’t go green, it really won’t matter too much if we do. Today, we'll explore what would happen to the stock market and the economy if liberals ever control all three branches of government, then Gary Kaltbaum joins us...A big show you don't want to miss MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

    America’s trade war with China has been quietly escalating for years, but recently, it seemed to have taken a turn for the disastrous. Huawei, once the rising star of China’s tech industry, has been cut off from US suppliers, leaving the company effectively stunted. China wants to play hardball and has threatened what many think is an option that could cause serious chaos--China would ban the export of “rare earths” which it produces 80 percent of the world's supply. The materials are used for everything from electric cars to LED lights, from smartphones to missiles. Will this bring the U.S. to its knees? Find out in a special report in the Market Intel segment today. Then estate planning attorney Libby Banks joins us for the Q & A.  MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!&nbs […]

    As this bull market becomes the longest in history, and signs of economic slowdown both globally and domestically are showing up, the risk of a bad sequence in the market combined with the need to withdraw for retirement income is coming into focus for many people on the verge of retirement or recently retired. Meanwhile, the proliferation of computer-driven algorithmic trading, also known as ‘algo’ trading, has increased that risk, according to reports appearing in Barron's, the Wall Street Journal, and Fox Business. Today, we have some facts and data that may shock you. Then Steve interviews best selling author and former Federal Reserve advisor Danielle DiMartino-Booth. A great interview and a fact-filled show you don't want to miss.   MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]

    Where do your beliefs and opinions come from? If you're like most people, including me, you honestly believe that your convictions are rational, logical, and impartial, based on the result of years of experience and objective analysis of the information you have available. In reality, all of us are susceptible to a tricky problem known as "Confirmation Bias. This is especially true when doing research on Google for information on annuities. Scientific studies conclude that we tend to focus on the information and headlines that UPHOLD OUR BELIEFS, and tend to ignore the information that CHALLENGES our beliefs. This can cost you thousands of dollars. Today, we'll review confirmation bias, how to overcome it, and how to make better fact-based financial decisions. Then Steve has seven questions you need to ask about annuities before you choose. A great show lined up for you today, don't miss it!  MASTERING MONEY is on the air! […]

    …According to the Wall Street Journal, Institutional Investors are increasingly concerned that the long post-crisis expansion since 2009 could be nearing an end. The U.S. economy is strong and is a model for the rest of the world right now, but the problem is that most nations are simply too weak and wobbly to follow, leading to negative interest rates. Bond yields, which fall as prices rise, have fallen in recent weeks due to tepid economic data, geopolitical tensions and signs of caution from the Federal Reserve. And now, many experts believe the Fed will actually CUT interest rates in 2019!  And what about stocks? Will the market slide? And which investments can BENEFIT from a decline? We'll review what you need to know, then health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!! […]
