    Over seventeen trillion dollars worth of government bonds are now paying NEGATIVE interest rates. Those rates are driving U.S. rates down, with numerous negative consequences. The main one is that retirees who want to tone down the risk in their portfolio and focus on safety and secure income can no longer turn to bonds. This is leading to increasing demand for dividend GROWTH stocks--stocks that RAISE THEIR DIVIDENDS every single year. Today on Mastering Money, Steve will demonstrate how a stock whose PRICE declines by thirteen percent over ten years can still realize a positive return over six percent because of reinvesting RISING dividends.  Learn how a declining market may actually HELP you build more wealth for the future than a rising market.

    When five hundred point swings become the norm in stock markets—and where TRILLIONS of dollars of retirement money is at stake---it’s not surprising to learn that many retiring professionals are suddenly seeking to focus more on income and preservation, rather than taking further risks in an attempt to build their pile.  One day, the market reverses.  …It isn’t a matter of IF, but WHEN.   Where do you want YOUR life savings when it finally occurs? What level of risk are you willing to accept with the only retirement money you’ll ever have?  Today, we'll zero in on specific planning and allocation strategies designed to protect and even benefit from a market downturn. The objective: permanent financial peace of mind!  A great show for you today, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

    SO,  “when IS the best time to take Social Security?”  Should you take it early, later, or right at Full Retirement Age? Is there a sweet spot where you beat the system at its own game?  Entire books have been written on the topic, and there are many seminars on the topic going on almost every day.  Most of the confusion about when to take Social Security income centers on SPOUSAL benefits. Today, Steve and I will review the new rules of Social Security claiming and outline a circumstance when it makes sense for the younger spouse to start benefits early. Then health insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. A fact-filled show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    According to Lawrence Strauss writing for Barron’s, dividend stocks are in a strong position as bond yields drop. With every downward tick of the 10-Year U.S. Treasury note’s yield, dividend-paying stocks look even better, he says—concurring with other analysts in the field.  The 10-year treasury note’s yield has fallen as low as 1.6 percent. That’s its lowest level since 2016, according to FactSet. But now, many bond analysts are saying that rates could fall even further for U.S. bonds with the potential for negative interest rates. Over 58% of stocks in the S & P 500 now have a dividend yield higher than the interest rate on a ten-year treasury bond. The timing could be very good for investors who want to get started with a quality dividend reinvestment strategy. Complete details on that and more. 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!!

    There was a time, not that long ago, when a home on the golf course was a can't miss proposition. Suddenly, however, courses are closing and the homes built around them are plummeting in value as younger generations are not playing golf like their parents and grandparents. More than 200 golf courses closed in 2017 and 2018, while only about 15 new ones opened, according to the National Golf Foundation, and many more closures are on the way. Its an example of how the unanticipated events of the future--things you can't see today--could affect the outcome of your investments. We'll review the Wall Street Journal report and then Steve reviews tips for building retirement wealth the SMART way.  MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    The stock market has built many millionaires and even some billionaires over time and so has real estate. But today's long bull market and the high prices on real estate have investors wondering where the best place for their money is right now--especially investors facing retirement.  Real estate investments can be good until a recession hits—which is inevitable. As a more liquid alternative, Many investors prefer dividend growth stocks, which are like owning rental properties where, as a landlord, you keep getting higher and higher rents every year. Today, we'll compare investing in real estate with investing dividend stocks. Then health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

    It can be said there are two kinds of retired investors: those who are willing to rely upon market-based outcomes for the rest of their lives and hope for the best, and those who prefer a bit more safety, security, and guaranteed income to meet their needs, staying prepared for the worst. In reality, a well-planned combination of the two strategies may provide the best solution.  Here’s the problem:  Treasury bonds have strong guarantees but are paying UNDER TWO percent!! Today, we'll review a dynamic yet secure financial strategy for achieving more income without worry, while building exceptional financial reserves for the future.

    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.

    Question: do the rich GET rich at the expense of the poor? Many people believe that the rich ONLY become rich at the expense of OTHERS. This world view is called “zero-sum thinking” because its adherents regard economic life as a zero-sum game, just like tennis, where one player has to lose for the other to win. Dr. Rainer Zitelman, writing in Forbes pointed out the flaw of zero-sum thinking. Zitelman was awarded his first doctorate in 1986 and his second Ph.D. in 2016-- and has written 22 books. In Forbes, Zitelman recalled the German poem: “Said the poor man with a twitch: Were I not poor, YOU wouldn’t be rich.” Today, we'll explore how Zitelman blows up that myth in a special evidence-based report you don't want to miss. Then Steve has three key tips for building retirement wealth the SMART way. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!
