    The S&P 500 is having its best run since 2013, but individual investors are fleeing stock funds at the fastest pace in decades. AND THAT, as ironic as it sounds, is a BULLISH sign, and potentially WHY the market may continue to move higher, says a Wall Street Journal report. As we've seen so often in the past,  stocks climb a “Wall Of Worry" on their way to higher price levels.  According to the Journal, we are seeing exactly that right now--investors have cashed out of stock mutual funds in record numbers in 2019, yet the market continues to rise. This phenomenon shows even more strength and may take the market higher, according to analysts. We'll review exactly what the analysts are saying, what you need to know, and what you need to DO right now with your investment portfolio. Don't miss today's show MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

    Everyone knows how Social Security works—the longer you wait to start the income, the higher your future income will be when you finally turn it on. Your future income rises mathematically by a factor of five-point two-five percent until full retirement age, then eight percent a year until age seventy. You might think that most people wait until they can get the highest income by putting off  Social Security Benefits until age 70. But statistics show that over NINETY-EIGHT PERCENT of Americans start their income much sooner. Is that a smart idea, or not so smart? Today, we'll break it down, then Steve has specific tips on how to build more retirement wealth the SMART WAY...Don't miss it... MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    If you’re smart, tax planning is a year-round activity.  And, if you are even smarter, you will pay attention not only to the  ALLOCATION strategy for your investments, but also your LOCATION strategy. Knowing WHERE to locate your various investments inside OR outside of IRAs and Roths is something that is easily done with a little planning upfront. For example, many investors will pay taxes on mutual funds this year even though they never took out a penny from their account. They--and maybe you--will get charged for capital gains that occurred in the fund during the year even though you didn't cash in. Today, we'll point out to avoid unnecessary taxes with your investments and then get some planning insights from CPA Nick Stefaniak.

    The City of London’s decision to revoke Uber ’s operating license opens a window into what drivers say has been a fairly common practice of sharing or renting out DRIVER accounts—both at Uber and Lyft.   Transport-for-London, the city’s main transportation regulator, said recently it determined that over 14,000 Uber rides in London in late 2018 and early 2019, were NOT conducted by authorized drivers, but by others who had been able to substitute their photos to use a real driver’s account! Why is it a big deal? The obvious reason is safety. Studies reveal there have been more than 100 Uber drivers in the U.S. who have been accused of sexually assaulting or abusing passengers over the past 4 years. You don't want to miss this fascinating Wall Street Journal report. Then,  Medicare specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us. We have a great show for you today...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    It’s official. You happen to be living during the worst time in history to retire!... The worst. Seriously!!  For most people retiring in 2020 and beyond, gone are the pensions of yesteryear. Gone are the six percent, to eight percent interest rates on long term government bonds. And gone is the idea that you can rely on the stock market to be predictable and reliable.  The Inconvenient Truth About Retiring in 2020 and Beyond is that the stock and bond markets are at all time high's while interest rates are at all time lows. And to top it off the experts tell us that Social Security and Medicare are headed for insolvency by 2034. Meanwhile you need to have a reliable income plan for retirement and a way to grow your money. We'll help you take an honest assessment of your risks and opportunities then we'll be joined by estate planning attorney Libby Banks. Don't miss it. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

    According to Christopher Mims, Technology Editor for the Wall Street Journal, The Next Hot Job for Millennials may be: "Pretending to Be a Robot!" As the Journal points out, you will begin to see more and more robots walking down the street, or working as security guards at factories and warehouses. But its not all bad news for humans seeking jobs, because people will still be needed to operate and oversee many of the robots for at least the next ten years if not longer. And one job would involve being the brains and voice of the robots from a remote location. We have the Wall Street Journal report for you today and then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

    The upside of the stock market is that it can build exceptional wealth with great liquidity. The danger is that we take on the future being reactive rather than pro-active. The risk of a market crash can never be eliminated, but it can be mitigated. The reasons to diversify are everywhere you look, but the danger is that we as investors overestimate our ability to see danger coming. We simply can't. We believe that bad things happen to other people—research confirms it over and over. There are more than seven types of risk almost every investor is taking right now, and some of that risk is at or near an all-time high. Steve will review each of those risks today and how to build, grow and protect your nest egg. You don't want to miss it. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

    We've talked about it before on Mastering Money: An emotion that can get you in trouble known as  'FOMO"… the fear of missing out. It could also be called the "Grass Is Greener" syndrome.  Studies show that social media enthusiasts,  consumers, AND investors all may suffer from the affliction.  Nowhere in the financial world is FOMO more prevalent than with hedge funds. Many investors are jealous of those who have enough money to be in the top hedge funds like Ray Dalio's Bridgewater fund. But how successful are these hedge funds, REALLY?  We'll dig into that today and review Dalio's All Weather Portfolio and show you how to build your own All Weather Portfolio better suited to your own personal financial objectives.

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Baby boomers are getting ready to sell ONE QUARTER of America’s homes over the next two decades. The problem is that many of these properties are in places where younger people no longer want to live. It is quite possible a real estate glut of oversupply is developing in senior communities. On the weekend Sun City opened in 1960, cars were backed up for 2 miles as some ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND visitors waited to gawk at a village built specifically for adults over the age of 50. Today, its a nice town, but like so many Sun Belt senior living cities coast to coast,  supply has increased and demand is falling. Today we'll review a fascinating Wall Street Journal report then mortgage expert Mitch Boxberger joins us. Don't miss today's show, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!!

    American millennials are approaching middle age in worse financial shape than every living generation ahead of them, lagging behind baby boomers and Generation X despite a decade of economic growth and falling unemployment. New data show that millennials may never catch up with the generations of Americans that came before them. The Fed analyzed income, debt, asset, and consumption data and found that millennial households had an average NET WORTH nearly 40% less than Gen X households had in 2001, and about 20% less than baby boomer households had in 1989. At the same ages, Gen X men working full time earned 18% more than their millennial counterparts do now, and BABY BOOMER men earned 27% more when adjusting for inflation, age, and other variables. How could this affect YOUR retirement? Stocks may not keep their values due to weakening demand and the Social Security system may deplete faster than we thought. Today, we'll review the Wall Street Journal report. That and much more...MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!!

    Eighty percent of men die married. Eighty percent of WOMEN... die single. And because many women are younger than their husbands, their period of time living alone can be five to fifteen years or longer.  Add to that... the reality that women are much more likely to become care-givers for a parent and potentially their husbands at some point. Consider this statistic:  In her 60s a woman’s estimated lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is one in eleven, but for women developing Alzheimers it is one in six. So not only might a woman live for a very long time in her elder years, her odds of doing it with dementia are also high.  Today we'll review how more and more retired couples are re-thinking and re-engineering their portfolios to plan for the woman of the house.
