Today on Mastering Money, a very special guest joins us. But first.....Very few investors would consider basing their entire life savings around owning just one stock. The reason is obvious. Even with the best company on the planet, times change, things go wrong, competitors emerge and the stock price can fall. At first glance, some investors believe diversification simply means SPREADING your risk. But is that really all there is to it? If all it took to be successful was to own lots of different stocks, without regard to WHY you own each and every one of them, then there would be no losers on Wall Street. Everybody would win every day, and all the time. Because we know there are more losers than winners on Wall Street, it is important to truly diversify your portfolio in the smartest way possible--and according to your age.

An annuity is a retirement account with "airbags" and a seat belt. Buyers invest a sum of money in a particular annuity, and in exchange, they’re guaranteed a steady monthly check for a set number of years, or for life, their choice. On an increasing basis, annuities are being used by retiring professionals to take the risk out of their nest eggs. In years past, pensions were common. Today, it is more common NOT to have a pension. The satisfaction rate on annuities is actually far higher than mutual funds. So why do low-information newspaper and internet journalists knock annuities? Because they are LOW on information! Today, we'll fix that and we hope some uninformed journalists are listening in. Then Medicare and Health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. You don't want to miss today's show...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. Then, insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. A power-packed show today that you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
