Index To Portfolio Management Content

With the constant changing social political economic environment we live in today compounded by the influx of 24 hour news. It is easy to see why so many are overwhelmed with the management of their portfolio. A lot of the information we see today implies that ones portfolio constantly needs to be adjusted for the social, political, and economic climate. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality, it's about construction and allocation of one's portfolio that determines their long-term success. A reactive vs proactive mindset does not serve investors well. If you're not sure you have a well diversified portfolio, request a portfolio MRI to learn what your portfolio looks like and if your getting "Market Returns".

“Main Street Money Part 6” is a segment of a special to our radio show that we had done here in Happy Valley with Mark Matson, my investor coach, when he came through on his bus promoting his new book and PBS special, “Main Street Money”. Mark and I pull back the curtain on the financial services industry as we talked about investing, Wall Street, insurance, the bullies, and why most American investors have the cards stacked against them.

In this week’s rant Paul Nichols, the president of Financial Abundance, talks about predicting the market and Benjamin Graham, the father of security analysis, a practice that unfortunately has manifested into today’s market place as the practice of hyperactive trading. The “Investor Coach” hits another home run this week!

Why did you leave me here all alone?

“Oh where, oh where has the money gone”? That’s what investors trusting their portfolios to MF Global Holdings are singing right now. $1.2 billion in customer funds cannot be found, and no one seems to have any idea what happened to those investment accounts. You might have seen this in the news.

The president of the now bankrupt MF Global, former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine, testified at a Congressional Committee Hearing on December 13. In his opening remarks, he said:

This week Paul Nichols, the president of Financial Abundance, and Deb Seaward talk about how innovation will prevail with the country’s current debt crisis and the depressing headlines. We must always stay grounded in the fact that entrepreneurism and innovation always has and always will conquer America’s woes. The “Investor Coach” hits another home run this week!

Trading Treadmill

Trading Treadmill….avoid the hype
I ran across a recent press release this morning from Business Wire that announced some activity for Charles Schwab Corporation in August. I found it interesting that there was a large in-flow of new assets that came into Schwab about $62B and what I really found curious was the amount of trades that were taking place. Trades are up substantially in August about 57% in and 35% in July. Now what reasonable explanation can justify this amount of activity? Why is this happening? FEAR, FEAR, FEAR!

Group vs Individual Long Term Care Insurance

Long term care insurance planning, an area that many do not really want to talk about. There’s a certain inevitability that we often ponder when this subject comes to the surface. I find it to be one of the areas that cannot be overlooked, especially considering our fiduciary duty. Some folks have an opportunity to […]

Market Volatility Leads to Big Investor Mistakes

The month of July (and now August) must have been the worst nightmare for advisors who recommend market timing (otherwise known as tactical asset management) as the investment method of choice to their clients.

Market timers, of course, have to be right two times – they try to predict not only when to get out of the market, but also when to get back in. This is an impossible task during normal times, and doubly so last month.
