Government Shutdown Market Impact

A recent Friday, late in the evening, Congress and the White House came to an agreement that averted a partial government shutdown – for now. Over the course of last week, several advisors asked for my take on what would happen to the stock markets if the government had closed down, even temporarily. Some of these advisors following the active approach to investment management, wondered if they should “sell,” or if should they “buy.” Would the markets go up? Or would they go down? How should they react?

My advice was that if client portfolios were properly designed from the beginning, there would be no need to make any changes to existing portfolios.

Retirement & Municipal Bonds

As you know, we are not big fans of Municipal Bonds. You will not find a single Municipal Bond among the 10,000 – 14,000 holdings in any of the Academically Managed accounts that many of you own through me. But often, retirees and those preparing for retirement are heavily invested in municipal bonds and bond funds. Unfortunately, in many cases, their advisors may not have disclosed to them the significant risks that such a strategy bears.

Income Planning: Budget Challenge

Many of us think that we are good stewards of our money. We often think that each purchase is something we need, when in reality it is only something we want. When I was younger I thought I was a great steward of my money. At that time I was living hand to mouth, as most young people do when they are just getting started. It seemed I didn’t have enough money at the end of the month to save. Then I met a very successful gentleman who made a huge difference on my life. He suggested I do the following:

The Investors’ Dilemma: Understand the Psych

Have you ever worried about getting high enough returns on investments? Maintaining your standard of living at retirement? Affording high quality education for your children? Have you ever worried about the next market crash, missing out on the latest, greatest stock tip? Making sense of the all the information available or someone else having a better portfolio than you? Have you ever worried about not having enough money to care for loved one, getting bad advice and, worse yet, paying for it? Have you ever bought an investment when it was doing really well, when it was high, and later sold it because of bad performance at a low price? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then you are in the right place.

Parkinson’s Law

From the desk of Paul Nichols: President of Financial Abundance Inc.

C. Northcote Parkinson is probably most recognized for his book entitled Parkinson’s Law. It states that “work expands to meet the time envelope allowed.” Give it a shot- give someone a task with a deadline of 2 days, and it will be done near the end of the 2nd day. Give the same task to another person and give them a week to complete it. You can bet that the task won’t be completed until the waning hours of the 7th day.
