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.

One of these days, Joe Biden will emerge from his cave more than once a week to attempt to lay out his actual positions and policies on things that really matter to Americans. This week he dropped a bomb. He has guaranteed to raise taxes on corporations and individuals if elected. Biden seems to do ok when he sticks with a well-rehearsed set of talking points on teleprompters--but in the real world, he will at some point be forced to come to grips with his opinions on street violence, damage and destruction, rising crime, and the defunding of police. And when he does, his bosses on the left--like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez-- won’t like it. Trump’s position is quite clear. He's going to run on Law and Order and supporting the police. Today, we'll examine the effects of raising taxes on corporations and the chain of events it would touch off, and it may shock you! Get the market intel you need to become a better investor.

For more than eight decades, the Social Security program has played a critical role in providing a financial foundation for our nation's retired workers. Most people build their long term retirement plan around the certainty of a steady check from Social Security. According to the Centers for Budget and Policy Priorities, the system singlehandedly pulls more than 15 million retirees out of poverty every year. It’s safe to say that without it, our nation would be in a constant state of recession. Which is why it is alarming that the program faces serious financial hurdles in the years ahead. In fact, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Social Security retirement fund could face depletion as early as 2030, jut ten short years from now. Steve and I will review the details and the facts.

Many retired investors today are hoping, waiting, and praying for interest rates on bonds to go up so they can retire in safety. According to economic analysis by a growing number of economists, they may be hoping, praying, and waiting a very long time. Deflationary trends have gripped the world forcing interest rates to near zero, and even below zero. Low rates help borrowers but hurt savers.

Retirees are facing the hardest investment decisions of their lives right now. Imagine: a million dollars in a ten year treasury bond will only pay you around SEVEN thousand dollars a year!

Most investors in or near retirement are looking for three main things with their nest eggs: Number 1) ample liquidity, number 2) permanent, worry-free reliable income to cover all expenses for as long as they live, and number 3) an effective and systematic way to grow money in the stock market over time. Once upon a time, retired investors could use the four percent withdrawal rule as a possible way to take just the right amount of money out of your investments in retirement--not too much, not too little. But today's ridiculously low interest rates have blown up the four percent withdrawal rule. Today, we'll explain the CASTLE-AND-MOAT strategy to build, grow and protect your retirement savings the SMART way, while enjoying locked-in-for-life income of far more than four percent, without the risk of running out of money.

Retiring today is a challenge financially. The real risk is that a befuddled and aging Joe Biden gets elected. Let’s be kind. He is far past his prime and would likely offer little resistance to the pressure of the "Woke" Left Wing Mob—the ones who want to tear down not only the statues of Francis Scott Key and Christopher Columbus, but the way we elect our officials and how we keep law and order in cities and towns. One of his stated policies is to raise taxes on corporations and bring in the first wave of Green New Deal restrictions. That deadly combination will slow an economy already struggling to recover from COVID 19… and crush the markets. Today, we'll review all of the risks you face in the second half of 2020, then Steve will offer time tested solutions to keep your retirement out of harm's way.
