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..don't miss it!...MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!!

While the stock market may dip due to the PSYCHOLOGICAL effects of a recession or unexpected event, there is a big difference between a dip and a crash. As an investor, you are wise to understand that difference.  Unfortunately, scary headlines about BOTH often push skiddish investors to do the exact opposite of what they should do when a recession, a dip, or surprising event occurs.  Rather than seeing OPPORTUNITY, like professional investors do, many investors panic,  and end up selling high quality holdings at precisely the wrong time—destroying any chance of being successful over the long run.  They climb back in later, after licking their wounds, and locking in losses. Today, we'll lay out the clear steps for protecting your retirement portfolio from the unexpected and setting yourself up to achieve long term goals. Then Medicare specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.  A timely show you don't want to miss... MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

So…what’s the REAL secret to stock market success?  We’d all love to think that there is just one secret but in the real world it comes down to avoiding big mistakes, avoiding hunches, having a logical strategy, and buying stocks that the big institutional investors have their eyes on.   The more you listen to experienced investment managers who have attained a high level of success, the one common thread is that they keep most of their money in stocks being considered or bought by the big “institutional investors.” The big mutual funds, pensions, and insurance companies are the institutional investors  considered to be the “BIG FISH” or even the killer WHALES on Wall Street. They DRIVE demand. Today, we'll show you how and why to build  your investment strategy around the Killer Whales. An important show you don't want to miss, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

As you get closer to the day when your salary goes away… and everything you’ve accumulated up to this point has to be the source of ALL your future paydays… your decisions need to become more accurate. You can’t afford the mistakes you made thirty years ago.  On an increasing basis, the news literature in the financial world states that you will need more than a million dollars to retire and to make sure you don't go broke.   A million is a nice sum of money, but unless you properly diversify, allocate, and conserve it, you run the risk of seeing it get cut in half by a combination of market declines, income withdrawals, RMDs, taxes, politics, fees, inflation, and poor timing when it comes to retirement. Today, we''ll tell you the story of Doug and Diane, who found out the hard way. Then Medicare Specialist Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.

When the U.S. Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1978, it  resulted in the first 401(k) plan, which took the costly burden of financing retirement pensions off of the backs of employers and onto the backs of employees. At one time, over 80 percent of workers retired with a pension. Today less than 18 percent of American workers have a pension in place.   And if many companies get their way, they will be carrying fewer and fewer pensions as time goes on. Many pensions are underwater or will be because of the lowest interest rates in U.S. history on bonds, causing pension plans to take more risk. We'll explain why it's happening and what you should do if you are offered a lump sum.   A great show you don't want to miss-- MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

One of the most impactful--but least discussed parts-- of the recently released Joe Biden tax plan is the elimination of the "step-up-in-basis" upon death. Many American families have enjoyed the ability to pass on appreciated assets like the family home, real estate, and stocks held at brokerages to the next generation without any capital gains tax.  Whether you have built up a nice stock portfolio or paid off your home and hope to leave it to your kids, Biden’s plan would eliminate that privilege and impose a capital gains tax ON YOUR KIDS upon death  But wait, there's more! His plan also makes gains taxable at the ordinary income rate, rather than the lower capital gains rate. We'll review the Tax Foundation's analysis. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A really important show you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Retirement is supposed to be easy.  This is the time in your life when you want to start relaxing and enjoying your life. You've put in your time…you want to reap the rewards. Twenty years ago, the secret to retirement was to move half of your  money to bonds paying five to seven percent…. You got the SAFETY you needed-- and typically enough interest  to keep you from worrying about your money!  But twenty years ago,  you were likely PERTURBED because the rate on a ten  year treasury was dropping all the way “down” to five or six percent!   Today, a ten year treasury bond is paying less than one point seven percent!   Yet the advice you still may get from a big-box-brokerage like Vanguard, Fidelity, or Edward Jones,  is to keep buying those bonds paying the lowest interest in one hundred years. Today, Steve  will break down what a huge risk you may be taking, and how to fix it.  Don't miss today's show MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

In investing, knowledge is power. To paraphrase Benjamin Graham's investment advice--Warren Buffett’s mentor--you should strive to know WHAT you are doing and WHY. If you don't understand the game, he said, don't play it...and Stay away until you do. Being honest, most of us would say we DON’T actually understand the market. It has gotten so massive and unpredictable, pretending to know every aspect of it is foolhardy. Even Warren Buffett, during his brilliant career, only worked within a slice of the market—companies that he grew to understand very well and companies that made real money in the real economy. Buffett took a mathematical and systematic approach to investing. Today we'll review exactly how to do that, then health insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A great show for you today...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
