    During the election, we heard debate moderators ask why The United States has only "four percent of the world’s population but twenty percent of the identified cases."   The question is meant to sound like a lofty, gotcha, "statistical chokehold"--putting someone like President Trump or Mike Pence on defense.  The answer lies in simple math... and is completely obvious. Here it is:  If you live in an advanced country with  an advanced and prolific system of IDENTIFYING cases through a process known as 'testing'--which the U.S. leads the world in-- it follows that you WILL find and report more IDENTIFIED cases. A child of ten could figure it out, if given the facts. But debate moderators would rather play gotcha. Today, we'll review hard data from a scientific research team on who really is denying the Covid 19 science.  You may be surprised. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.  A really interesting show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Most stocks are generally classified as either value stocks or growth stocks. Generally speaking, stocks that trade for valuations below the Price to Earnings ratio of the S&P 500 are considered value stocks, while stocks that outperform the S & P in terms of sheer growth rates are considered growth stocks. Some stocks meet both requirements. We'll talk about several of them today and why analysts at JP Morgan are projecting a big swing to value and dividend stocks as the economy slowly works its way back to normal in 2021. JP Morgan likes the idea of political gridlock--which they predict no matter who is president--and of course the success of COVID vaccines.

     A new landmark retirement study has found that the number of Protected Households has risen for the first time since 2018. The Alliance for Lifetime Income’s annual Protected Lifetime Income Study revealed a total of  3.1 million NEWLY  Protected Households and identifies five profiles of Americans planning for retirement. This is the first time since 2018, that the number of Protected Households in the US has increased. Today we'll review exactly what that means. We'll learn why the share of protected US households grew from 37% in 2019 to 40% this year, the largest increase on record.  Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us to clear up all the hoopla going on with Medicare-- and those non-stop commercials!

    Is it time to buy airline stocks? And if so, which companies might position you ahead of the crowd as multiple vaccines emerge? The exciting announcements of new effective vaccines is a game breaker--and many big investors on Wall Street are getting ahead of the crowd, buying "RECOVERY COMPANIES", which include  the airline and tourism industries.  Today we'll look at a company you’re quite familiar with being described as ‘Predatory and Opportunistic’ in times like these: Southwest Airlines. The Wall Street Journal says that once again, Southwest is seizing the moment as weaker competitors struggle--adding two new airports in 2020 and four more to be vacated by weaker competitors in 2021. We'll review the Wall Street Journal breakdown and then Steve will provide an update of the IQ Wealth Black Diamond and Blue Diamond portfolios. ...A money-making show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    Joe Biden, who pending legal challenges is the CEO of the office of the President Elect, says that Donald Trump does not have a plan to take on COVID 19. He says that Trump doesn't believe in science and has done absolutely nothing to fight the virus--even though Trump spearheaded the deal with Pfizer in June.  Besides developing vaccines and treatments in record time, leading the world in testing, and figuring out a way to reopen the economy while taking on the bug, you could say Mr. Trump has done nothing. But you would be an idiot. Joe's plan is not that intricate. It centers around two measures mainly: a national mandate for every American to wear masks everywhere,  until he says you don't have to, and to LOCK DOWN the economy if a scientist tells him to. Well, the CDC and the World Health Organization have some man-splainin' for Joe: The CDC now says that full time mask wearers still get Covid , and the CDC condemns the idea of further lockdowns. A detailed report, then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins.  Don't miss today's show...  MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    Many experts on CNBC and elsewhere are saying that DIVIDEND stocks are coming into favor now as the love affair with growth-only stocks begins to chill under a more stingy Republican Senate in 2021.  Dividend growth stocks--the type of stocks that grow their dividend every year without fail-- have provided a steady way to grow wealth in good times and bad.  But how do you find the best ones? Many companies pay dividends but they pay them inconsistently, or pay too much of their revenue in dividends which can leave the company strapped for cash. Today, Steve will review the disciplined process used at IQ Wealth to select dividend growth stocks, and he'll provide a clear example.   You don't want to miss today's informative show...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

    Electric cars run quietly and no smoke comes out the back as they cruise down the highway. These cars burn no gas. They are battery powered, so they couldn't possibly be polluting the air, right?  Wrong!  says former electric vehicle engineer for GM and author of an important book on the topic.  How could electric cars and trucks possibly pollute?  Well it turns out that it has a lot to do with MAKING the batteries and CHARGING the batteries. Joe Biden says he wants to use your tax dollars to build 500,000 new charging stations. Today we'll learn how that could have a major NEGATIVE effect on the environment. And then Medicare and health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A very interesting show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    President-elect Joe Biden, should his election be confirmed, will inherit a U.S. trade policy characterized by tariffs on global imports, including tariffs on steel and aluminum from most of the world, on wine and cheese from Europe, and on nearly three-quarters of everything the U.S. buys from China. In fact, Trump’s tariffs are still being levied on $370 billion dollars worth of imports.   While Mr. Biden hasn’t detailed his specific plans, nor answered any questions at a real press conference,  aides and advisers say he is expected to review those levies. And like President Trump, he will largely be able to act without the need for Congressional support --using Executive Orders.  Some of Mr. Biden’s campaign proposals are likely non-starters if Republicans maintain control of the Senate—but not trade policy, where the president has broad authority to conduct negotiations and peel off or apply new tariffs as he sees fit.

    Many investors think the only way to build wealth is to see the price of your stocks go up, however,  many more personal fortunes have been built with stock splits and dividends reinvested over time. You can't always control the price of the stock you own. But dividends are cash money that you can reinvest or spend. Warren Buffett refers to it as the SNOWBALL effect, where down markets can actually become your friend.  Stock splits happen to great companies that keep growing, year after year until the price gets too high.   Today, we'll use Amazon as an example, following it from its IPO in 1997, through its multiple stock splits, and magnificent growth. Ten thousand dollars invested  in Amazon back then would be worth more than 12 MILLION DOLLARS today! We'll examine Amazon's fascinating history, with some deep insights on how to build your own fortune. Then Medicare specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us.  Don't miss today's  GREAT show...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    Is the stock  market logical? For that matter, are PEOPLE logical? Investment mistakes are very easy to make, even when you take a logical approach to the market. And who among us is 100 percent logical all the time?   Most people in or near retirement would rather not spend hours a day studying market trends, money flows,  and reading detailed reports. That's why you offload that task to a professional. But even money managers were caught off guard by this election. Many thought it was logical that if Joe Biden looked like he was going to win the election, the market would decline because he favors raising corporate taxes and the minimum wage.  But the market went UP on election day, even though Biden took the lead. Was there any logic working there?  Actually, at the professional level, it turns out the answer is... YES, and Steve will explain exactly how that logic was applied--Plus-- how one company defied the odds. A really interesting show for you today...MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!

    It seems everyone wants to do a Roth conversion—until it’s actually time to write checks to the IRS!  Roth conversions sound appealing, but they don’t always make sense-- according to many CPAs-- especially the closer you get to age 70.   That said,  they can be a powerful tax planning technique. The idea behind most Roth conversions is to take money from a substantial IRA account, and convert it systematically to a Roth IRA, getting rid of taxes permanently on that money.   The Tax Cut and Jobs Act lowered taxes, creating a Roth conversion strategy known as "filling the middle brackets."  We'll review that strategy, as well as the perfectly legal "Back-Door-Roth" strategy. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.  A fact-filled show for you today that you surely don't want to miss...... MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
