As an investor, you can choose to invest in companies that pay dividends, or choose those that do NOT. With non-dividend paying stocks, there is only one way to make money: the price must go up. With dividend paying stocks you have three ways to make your nest egg grow. Generally speaking, companies that pay regular dividends make it part of their business model. A small fraction of companies vote to INCREASE the dividend every year. These are known as dividend GROWTH Stocks. Today, we’ll clarify the difference between Dividend Champions, Dividend Aristocrats, and Dividend Contenders– and why it matters. Then estate planning attorney Libby Banks joins us for the Q & A.  A fact-filled show you don’t want to miss–MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

A new trend is developing among well to do people who like to travel,  and who want to own a piece of several beautiful homes in desirable resort areas. Rather than owning a multi-million-dollar vacation property they may visit just once or twice a year, or buy a timeshare that stuffs them into a condo, many are opting to buy bite-sized pieces of luxury real estate they’ve acquired through fractional ownership. From Hawaii to Italy, to ski resorts,  these private-residence clubs offer luxury by the slice, says the Wall Street Journal. Owners buy a fraction of the property and are guaranteed a certain number of days, weeks, or months to do as they please– backed by fully deeded real estate. We’ll review the Journal’s report and then welcome travel expert Ruby Kelly with Ruby Kelly Travel for the Q & A. You don’t want to miss today’s show, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

One of the key challenges for amateur investors is the attraction to RISING PRICES. When the prices of most consumer goods such as gasoline or vegetables rise, people tend to either cut back or find a substitute. However, with financial assets, the opposite seems true. Many investors are attracted to a stock whose price has risen more than one whose price has fallen. This tendency often results in poor investment performance. It is difficult for an individual investor to effectively construct and maintain a portfolio that is properly diversified, minimizes fees and taxes, avoids overlapping assets, and stays in its lane without emotion. THAT’S why in retirement, hiring a professional to manage your assets with a clear WRITTEN strategy is so wise. Today, we’ll review the most practical and pragmatic approach to your investments then Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

It’s hard to blame investors for trying to save on fees and expenses when they invest their hard earned money. After all, most of us have a natural desire to save money on almost everything we do.   Therefore,  no-load mutual funds and index ETFs sound like sensible places for our money. These mutual funds and ETFs have very low expenses and can be excellent tools when used in the proper way, for the proper purpose, in the right amounts, and at the right time of your life.   However, we need to be careful to use the right tool for the right job.  A scalpel is a precision tool that can help perform miracles in the right hands, but without the skill, the experience, the training, and the talent, it is just a sharp knife and can even be dangerous. Today we will demonstrate how low fee mutual funds and ETFs can end up costing you more than you ever thought in retirement. Learn to invest SMARTER.
