Diversification is one of the fundamentals of investing. We all try to do it. When you diversify, you could lose less, but you could also make less! In fact, its almost guaranteed you will make less because those two dollar bets on the five horses that finish out-of-the-money could sink your gains on those that come in one, two, or three.  Sure, the long shot may come in first once in a blue moon, but your investment portfolio is not a one-time horse race or even a day at the track. It is a thirty year war in the trenches. Over time, healthier winning horses--and winning stocks--will emerge and continue to win. Today, we'll show you how to diversify your holdings to increase income, lower risk, and grow your money over time. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

..Do you know what a Q-LAC is? It is a Qualified Longevity Annuity Contract and it is an option that some 401(k), 403(b), and IRA owners are opting for these days. One reason is that a Q-LAC annuity inside a tax qualified account is not subject to RMDs--required minimum distributions. But do you know the other IRS rules regarding Q-LAC's? For example, how much money you can put into a Q-LAC, how much income you can take out (it can be substantial), and if there is a way to protect your beneficiaries? We will be answering those questions and much, much more on today's show.

…Planning a financial portfolio for retirement is much like building a custom home. To build a custom home, you start with a blueprint that details not only what your house will look like, but how the individual components will come together--starting with the Foundation. To do it right, you must first know what your objectives are. You and your designer work together to draw a plan that includes every room and every detail of each room until you have a full set of construction plans, plus a list of materials and resources needed to build the house in a timely manner. Today, we'll discuss how to build a financial plan for retirement that can weather all storms--and then CPA Nick Stefaniak joins us with Tax Tips on the New Tax Law. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

Americans’ wealth pushed further into record territory in the final quarter of last year, hitting nearly $100 trillion dollars(!) -- thanks to rising stock markets and real estate prices. Household net worth—the value of all assets such as stocks and real estate minus liabilities like mortgage and credit-card debt—rose more than $2 trillion dollars last quarter to an all-time record of $98.7 trillion dollars!
U.S. households also saw their net worth rise to nearly seven times their disposable personal income in 2017, swelling past earlier pre-recession peaks.  While it all sounds like good news, it is also cause for some concern. Americans are suddenly not saving money like they were in 2015.  Previous busts—like in the early and late 2000s—were preceded by similar periods of rising asset values and low saving. Today on Mastering Money, we'll do a complete rundown of the markets and the economy from multiple financial analysts, and compare the trends to previous bull and BEAR markets. You don't want to miss it! MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

You don't have to be a genius to become a millionaire in the stock market. You don't have to be a master trader or market timer either. In fact, market timing rarely works out! All you need is time and a simple plan.
Multiple studies show that your plan can be as simple as buying high-quality dividend-GROWTH stocks, at fair prices and letting them work FOR you over time. Dividend growth stocks are also known as dividend growers-- stocks that grow their dividend payouts every year, consecutively and consistently, and pay them to you quarterly, so that you can reinvest the dividends. According to data compiled by Ned Davis Research Dividend Paying stocks outperformed non-dividend payers over thirty years by a wide margin. The stocks of companies that grew their dividends every year, performed even better, more than doubling the return of stocks who cut their dividends. Today, we'll reveal how you can finally build wealth, preserve wealth, and have more income than you thought possible.  MASTERING MONEY is on the air!
