Retirement minded investors need income. So, with municipal bond rates so low, are utility stocks an option for conservative investors seeking income? If you have a very low income bar, perhaps, but likely not if you are also seeking an ultra safe asset.  Utility stocks may be a good choice for some investors seeking diversification from the broader equity market since the dividend yield of utilities averages around 3.6%. That's the highest average yield of any sector, according to a senior consultant for Morgan Stanley. Today, we'll review why certain, select utilities may be pretty good stocks to own for total return, but not for secure, reliable  income.  Today, Steve explains what to look for in a utility stock, how to use them in your portfolio, and how to give yourself a SAFE income raise.  Then Medicare and Health Insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. An informative show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!!

On a day when blue chip stocks took it on the chin, stocks that had been on their deathbed like GameStop, Bed Bath & Beyond, and AMC Theaters had field days. What the heck is going on, you might ask. Well, analysts are scratching their heads because none of the fundamentals have changed from a month ago. We still have trillions of dollars on the sidelines to buy even more stocks in 2021, checking and savings accounts are at high levels, the Fed is keeping interest rates low, and at least a trillion dollars in extra stimulus money is on the way. The blue chips fell a bit, but will likely find their way back to moving upward soon. Today, we'll examine what exactly how these small stocks are  skyrocketing, and what candidates for sudden similar moves might be out there. Then Steve will bring us down to earth and reveal some very smart moves to make with your retirement portfolio right now, for longer term satisfaction.  A timely and informative show you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

When we hear about sudden, massive gains in speculative stocks like Tesla and GameStop—the temptation is to feel like you somehow “missed out”.  But most investors of retirement age are not ready to put a heavy load of their money into one or two stocks to try to make a killing. As an investor, you need to decide what your priorities are, what your realistic goals are, and how much risk you are willing to take to achieve those goals.  If you’ve already accumulated five hundred thousand to a million dollars or more, it’s likely that you're not ready to lay it ALL down on one stock in hopes that it doubles within ninety days.  You're more likely to place an emphasis on PRESERVING what you’ve already made before you take big chances-- with big chunks of your money. In fact, the real reason you’ve accumulated money is that you’ve mostly avoided silly risks along the way.  Instead, you kept your eyes on the prize:   a comfortable retirement funded by diversified, solid investments that make sense. Today, we'll review a smart strategy for doing just that. Then medicare and health insurance specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us.  This is a show you DON'T want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

President Joe Biden wasted no time on Inauguration Day. He signed 17 executive orders and memorandums—by far the most in history on a president’s first day—one of which halted construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which would have carried crude oil from Canada through several states the US.  The 1,700-mile pipeline was planned to carry roughly 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, CLEANLY and without polluting the environment, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma.”    Somewhere between 11,000 and 42,000 jobs will be lost, and the decision will actually end up INCREASING pollution contributing to greenhouse gas!  ... So much for following the science. We'll examine other  unintended consequences of Biden's decision, then Chris Hill from the nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money Show joins us to talk about stocks.  An informative and entertaining show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

One of the simplest ways for companies to communicate financial well-being-- and shareholder value-- is to say "the dividend check is in the mail." Dividends, those cash distributions that many companies pay out regularly from their earnings to their stockholders, send a clear, powerful message about future prospects and performance.  A company's willingness and ability to pay steady dividends over time – and better yet--its power to INCREASE them each year–goes a long way towards communicating its fundamental strength and sustainability to shareholders. Today, we'll reveal key methods of selecting winning dividend stocks to help you invest better. Then, insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. A power-packed show today you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Have you heard about the Mardi Gras, Carnival Cruise Lines’s largest “Fun Ship”--EVER? It will hold up to 6,500 passengers, has dozens of theme restaurants including one by celebrity chef Emeril Legassi, and get this--features a very large first class ROLLER COASTER on top of the ship. It's not a pipe dream--the Mardi Gras is ready to set sail as soon as the CDC allows it to bring on passengers and leave the dock, which is why Carnival is considered a "recovery" stock, completely reliant on the vaccines.  The $950 million dollar, 180,000-ton vessel—which is 1.5 times the size of Carnival’s next-largest ship—has two theaters, five waterslides, a zipline, and a 1972 Fiat parked strategically for Instagram-posing purposes in an indoor “piazza.”  It will also be the first cruise ship in North America to run on liquified natural gas, which reliminates up to 20% of carbon emissions.  We'll tell you all about the Mardi Gras, whether or not to buy the stock, and how to invest for 2021 right now.  A fun and potentially profitable show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!  Let's get cruising!!!

Reports are that the first one hundred days for the Joe Biden presidency may include a declaration of emergency with relation to Climate Change that cuts a deep swathe into the affordable, reliable energy fossil fuel industry that provides a million jobs. Whether knowingly or not, millions of Americans voted for higher gas and electricity prices when they voted for Joe Biden, and based on recent market action, they are already getting a return on their vote “investment.” Gas and oil prices are already rising and could go up dramatically this year.  One of his first moves is to rejoin the 2015 Paris Climate accord that, according to industry experts,  will wipe out close to 2.5 trillion dollars in gross domestic product by the year 2035 and require the United States to pay billions in climate reparations to the U.N. to help smaller nations that we currently pollute...We have a complete report for you and then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.  A timely show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

As Trumponomics comes to a close and Bidenomics begins, investors don’t really need to predict which set of economic policies will work the best to stimulate the economy—at least not for a while yet. Experts say it will take six to twelve months or longer to begin to see the effects of most of Biden’s economic moves. In the meantime, whose policies will end up looking better when history is the judge--Trump, or Biden?  Most logical thinkers know that reining in job-killing government restrictions, lowering taxes for both job-creating corporations and tax paying Americans, and creating trade deals that bring and KEEP more factories right here in America, is a more sure path to long term economic success for OUR nation as a whole. But logic is not always the sure path to making money in the stock market. You need to know where the big boys are going, like Goldman Sachs, the Fed, and JP Morgan. We have a Barrons report on that for you today and Steve will review adjustments being made to the Black Diamond and Blue Diamond portfolios...an important show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!!
