Deadly Sin: Ignoring Taxes & Trading Costs

One Minute Retirement Tip with Ashley

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is the Deadly Sins of Investors In Bear Markets. Today, I'm talking about the deadly sin of ignoring taxes & trading costs. When markets are in a tailspin, it's easy to buy and sell without considering taxes or trading costs.  Because investors tend to buy and sell more frequently during volatile markets, they often do so while ignoring the gains and losses generated by their sales, and ignoring the fees for buying and selling investments. When you hold an investment for shorter than 1 year, the tax rate you pay on gains increases, so you'll pay more in taxes if you realize gains from your short-term trades.  Trading costs increase as well for many investors the more often you trade, and those fees can really add up and eat into your net returns.  The lesson here is to keep track of your gains throughout the year, and know where you stand with the gains in your taxable, non-IRA investment accounts.  And always know what the fee or commission is whenever you buy or sell an investment, so you won't be surprised.  Perhaps most importantly, you're going to be better off sticking with a buy-and-hold philosophy, since the research bears out that the more frequently you trade the more in fees and taxes you'll pay, and the worse your returns will be with a short-term focus.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

Was sie Neues erfährt, verrät dir Marco König in der neuen Gute Nacht Geschichte bei Ab ins Bett! Kindgerecht erzählte Geschichten fördern die Entwicklung. Die Gute-Nacht-Geschichte ist mehr als nur ein nettes Betthupferl. Geschichten wecken die Neugier der kleinen Zuhörer und regen ihre Fantasie an. So lernen sie, Zusammenhänge zu begreifen und Einzelheiten aus verschiedenen Erfahrungsbereichen zu einem Gesamtbild zu verknüpfen. Darüber hinaus werden ihre Sprach- und Kommunikationsfähigkeiten gefördert. Ein festes Ritual vor dem Einschlafen schafft Struktur und hilft dem Nachwuchs, zur Ruhe zu kommen. Mithilfe von Geschichten lassen sich die Ereignisse des Tages besser verarbeiten oder die Kleinen können Abstand davon gewinnen. Dass das Einschlafen danach leichter fällt, ist für jedermann leicht nachvollziehbar. Moderator Marco König und sein Podcast Marco König, Host der Podcast-Reihe Ab ins Bett, ist 43 Jahre alt und selbst Vater einer 13-jährigen Tochter. Als diese noch kleiner war, hat er ihr jahrelang jeden Abend am Bett eine Geschichte erzählt und konnte dadurch selbst erleben, wie viel dieses Abendritual bedeutet.

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is the Deadly Sins of Investors In Bear Markets. Today, I'm talking about the deadly sin of holding on to your losers. Many investors cannot bear to sell anything at a loss, so they ride it out in the hopes that the sour investment will turnaround.  When I was 22 years old, I was convinced that the Chinese were going to take over the world, and that their economy and stock market would thrive over the coming years. While I was still in college, I started following a Chinese index fund that tracked the performance of the largest Chinese companies. Between 2004 & 2007, this index fund tripled in value. When I graduated college in 2007, I had some savings built up, so I decided to put a few thousand dollars into the index fund. Back then, att 22 this investment of a few thousand dollars was about ⅓ of my entire net worth. Within a few months of buying the index fund, the financial crisis hit and I lost ⅔ of what I had invested.  It took me 3 more years after that while the Chinese market continued to limp along to finally sell my investment and move on.  3 years of holding onto a loser. I'm glad I sold, because I went back and looked, and that index fund still hasn't returned to the price I bought it at 15 years ago. But some people never sell, because the story they tell themselves is that the investment will recover. But in doing so, they ignore the fundamentals and they ignore all the reasons why that investment may never recover.  The lesson here is to detach yourself emotionally from all of your investments, and cut your losses early.  When deciding whether or not to hold or sell, all that matters is the future growth potential of that investment. Selling is hard because we ignore sunk costs that are a just a part of investing.The sunk cost fallacy means that we are making decisions that are irrational and lead to suboptimal outcomes. We are focused on our past investments instead of our present and future costs and benefits, meaning that we commit ourselves to decisions that are no longer in our best interests. That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is the Deadly Sins of Investors In Bear Markets. Today, I'm talking about the deadly sin of taking on more risk to make up for losses.  Most often I see this happen to investors who are approaching retirement. Maybe you're 5 years away from retirement, your portfolio is down 30% and the only path you see forward is to roll the dice and get super aggressive in the hopes that your big bet will pay off and you will be able to still retire in time.  I knew someone close to retirement who was behind on saving enough and felt tremendous pressure to catch up. He liquidated his entire 401k, invested it in a single stock. 6 months later he looked like a genius because he doubled his money. But he didn't sell a single share and in less than 2 years he lost 95% of his investment, and his nest egg is all but gone.  I wish this story was a one-off, but unfortunately it's all too common. We can become so blind to what's best for us, when we feel cornered and panicked about how to make up for lost time.  Then we see an opportunity to invest in something that's our lotto ticket to a comfortable retirement, and like most lottery tickets, it just ends up becoming a worthless piece of paper.  My best advice here is to accept the circumstances you find yourself in today, and figure out where you'll compromise to make up for lost time. Will you work longer? Will you live on less in retirement? Will you downsize and sell your home? We often want to avoid the more painful way out that involves some sacrifice, but it avoids the risk of losing everything by taking unnecessary risks when you can't afford to lose so late in your working years.  That's it for today.

Deadly Sin: Forgetting The Basics of Successful Investing

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is the Deadly Sins of Investors In Bear Markets. Today, I'm talking about a common temptation when the stock and bond markets go haywire, and that is forgetting the basics of successful investing.  Many investors get so caught up in fretting about their portfolio losses, that they forget about and abandon the timeless basics of successful investing. Investors forget about asset allocation, diversification, risk, asset location, company valuation and fundamentals.  But it's paying attention to these basics in good times and bad that will help see you through. So if you pay attention to asset allocation, that will help you to rebalance your investments and buy when stocks are cheaper. If you respect the principles of diversification and risk, you'll avoid putting all of your eggs in one basket by owning a single stock or doubling down on an investment thats already reeling with significant losses in the hopes that it will bounce back.  By paying attention to asset location, you'll ensure that taxes won't bite you hard later and that you own the right investments for each account type. If municipal bonds look cheap, they're never cheap enough to own in an IRA or a 401k type account.  And lastly, by paying attention to company valuation, you'll avoid the temptation of buying a stock simply because it's dropped in price. Many investors make the mistake of buying a stock after it drops 20, 30, or 40%.  The stock of the popular social media platform, Snapchat, is down almost 80% this year. The company relies on ad revenue to make money, and with that down and projected to get worse, the company has been in the doghouse. On the surface, it might look to some like the stock is now cheap after dropping 80% this year.  But to me, it doesn't look like the stock is cheap at all. They aren't profitable, they have plenty of competition from other social platforms like TikTok and Instagram, and their future still looks very uncertain.  So don't ignore the basic tenets of successful investing during a bear market, and you'll be glad that you didn't make a snap decision (did you catch that reference there?). That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

Deadly Sin: Having A “This Time Is Different” Mindset

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is the Deadly Sins of Investors In Bear Markets. Today, I'm talking about the most dangerous mindset that an investor can have during a bear market, and that is:  This time is different.  This time is different. It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking “this is it. This is the next great depression. I'm going to be wiped out if I don't get out, so I need to cash out now and keep my powder dry until I can make sense of the world again”. If you go back to all of the last severe bear markets, you see a common pattern, and yes, each time was different.  When the tech bubble burst, entire companies went up in smoke overnight. During the great recession of 2008, the entire banking system was teetering on the edge, near collapse. Many people lost their homes, and unemployment exceeded 10%.  When Covid hit, the stock market lost ⅓ of it's value in just a few short weeks, and now in 2022, we're trying to cope with higher inflation than many Americans can even remember. I wasn't even born yet the last time inflation was this bad.  So yes, this time is different. The circumstances are always different, and it's what makes predicting the next downturn so impossible. But there's an old saying that's critical to remember whenever you're tempted to think this time is different:  History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme.  The circumstances are different, but the stock market and economic fallout are similar, and most importantly, the recovery always comes.  As long as you still believe that the US economy will recover, businesses will recover, there's no reason to fall into the temptation of thinking this time is different. That thinking will only cause you to sell into the teeth of the downturn and perhaps never recover from that decision.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

Welcome to a new week here on the Retirement Quick Tips podcast!  I'm your host Ashley Micciche, co-owner of True North Retirement Advisors, an independent financial advisory practice managing $340 million in client assets. I'm a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, and I started this podcast because I love helping people just like you gain clarity and make a plan for the retirement you envision.  It's good to be back with you for some new episodes after taking the last few weeks off during the month of July.  I enjoyed my time off - some highlights were watching my sharp-shooter daughter nail the bullseye with a BB gun at cub scout camp, celebrating my oldest's 8th birthday, and lots of time at the park, in pools, & slip-n-slides.  This week on the podcast, the theme is: Deadly Sins of Investors In Bear Markets When the stock market and (bond markets for that matter in 2022) are in a tailspin, it's easy to lose perspective, and lose your mind, and make bad decisions as a result.  So this week, I'm sharing with you the deadly sins of investors during market downturns. These mistakes are so common that I see them nearly every time a new bear market comes along. But if you know how to spot these deadly sins, you'll be less likely to fall into the temptation of committing them yourself.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

We also learn about Francisco's previous experiences doing similar disaster work in Houston, Texas. He has some riveting stories as the city was preparing for Hurricane Harvey to make landfall. It's a great episode and you get to hear how a federal agency is stepping up on the issue of climate change. Topics covered: What is the role of SBA's Office of Disaster Assistance How is the Office evolving factoring in climate change. What are some federal policies that make it hard to provide disaster assistance. Learn why disaster preparedness is a key pillar of climate adaptation. Learn how remarkable a storm event Hurricane Harvey in Houston was. See how the city of Houston prepared for the arrival of Hurricane Harvey. “Recovery has to be tied to resilience.” “People are seeing forecasts that they could have never imagined before.” “Don't fight the Scenario.” Donate to America Adapts Listen to America Adapts on your favorite app here!

Welcome to a new week here on the Retirement Quick Tips podcast.  I'm your host Ashley Micciche, co-owner of True North Retirement Advisors, an independent financial advisory practice managing $340 million in client assets. I'm a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, and I started this podcast because I love helping people just like you gain clarity and make a plan for the retirement you envision.  This week on the podcast, I'm taking a little summer break. I live in Oregon, in the suburbs of Portland, and summers here are amazing. With 3 little kids at home, I've decided to give myself a little extra free time in the month of July. I will be back with new episodes next Monday, August 1st, but in the meantime, I've been sharing with you a free resource each week on the podcast. This week's free resource is access to our free business valuation tool. If you are a business owner or you have a close friend or family member who is a business owner getting close to retirement, you're going to want to get this free resource.  I don't talk about it much on the podcast, because this podcast is for people approaching retirement, no matter if you're a business owner or not, but at True North, one of our specialized areas of expertise is working with business owners nearing retirement. When you're a business owner, you have a whole other set of problems and priorities to address before retirement in addition to all of the routine decisions like deciding when to file for social security. The exit from your business is the final and most important business decision you'll ever make, and figuring out how to do that successfully on your terms with the resources you need to transition to the next phase of life is a real challenge.  Whether you have a small 1 or 2 person home-based consulting business generating $100,000 a year in sales or a business generating hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenue, and everything in between, knowing your business value today is the foundational step to embarking on your exit planning and retirement transition journey.  Yet, only about 2% of business owners know the value of their business. To solve that problem and help you start making a concrete plan to exit your business, I created a free checklist to gather the necessary data to value your business.  The checklist is your guide to gathering the relevant data points to accurately value your business. then, once you complete the checklist, you'll enter the data into our business valuation database to value your business for free. In less than 10 minutes, you'll have an accurate value for your business that you can use to start your exit planning journey.  To get your copy of the valuation checklist and free access to the business valuation database to www.truenorthra.com/valuemybusiness. That's truenorthra.com/valuemybusiness.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

This week we discuss whether TV reviews are worth using on the current crop of TVs and we look at the US use of Smart TVs growing even beyond the pandemic induced growth of 2020. Vizio announced their new lineup with the glaring omission of a new P-Series model. And finally we read your emails and look at the week's news. News: YouTube TV Hits 5M Subs Hulu Driving More Subscribers For Disney Than Disney+ ESPN+ Price Hike Coming Aug. 23rd, Monthly Rate Jumps to $9.99 Why 2022 TV reviews are a HOT MESS (Digital Trends) TV reviews in 2022 have gotten messy. From delayed delivery and restricted availability, to confusing firmware updates, and unnecessarily deep dives, TV reviews don't look anything like they used to, and that's become a problem. (Youtube Video) Supply Chain issues causing delays in TV shipments which means it's harder to get TVs for review. Some reviewers have to go to the manufacturer's site for review. But you are reviewing the TVs on the manufacturer's terms which means you won't necessarily get the full picture. Because there is a lack of TVs that are available for review some reviewers dive so deep into the minutiae they may expose something that does not affect 99% of the watching experience but they complain loudly. Then the TV manufacturers, wanting no bad press, over react and fix the issue and inadvertently break something else. Which results in the TV you bought a month prior turning into a different TV due to a firmware update. This may or may not be a good thing. But it kind of does invalidate aspects of any previous reviews. U.S. TV Homes Using A Smart TV To Stream Up 15 Percentage Points Since 2020 Hub Entertainment Research reveals the huge pandemic-era shift in consumption patterns. The big question in a post-growth era for Netflix: Is this shift still happening?

Vizio says that its existing 65- and 75-inch P-Series Quantum TVs, and 85-inch P-Series Quantum X TV will all continue to be sold until at least the end of 2022. A quick search of the Vizio website showed none available. For reference, Vizio lists the 85” P Quantum X for $3100.

Some problems that annoy you daily could be solved by AI, but most business teams don't know that because they've never discussed them with a technologist. Listen to this episode with Dr Catherine Breslin, a machine learning scientist with a PhD from Cambridge, to learn how to make the most of the AI revolution. Dr Breslin was one of the first people to work on Amazon Alexa and today leaders Kingfisher Labs, a consulting company. Learning notes from this episode: For AI to have the biggest impact, data scientists need the input of domain experts, who are usually non-techies. To collaborate successfully with a data scientist, Dr Breslin suggests that non-technical teams bring their business wish list to a data scientist. Some of the items will probably be easily solved by technology, while others will not. Having regular discussions between tech teams and business teams will widen your scope of what's possible. Buying data to build models is a significant cost, which needs to be built into estimates for a data science project. The three factors that influence how effective voice technology can be are language, subject, accent. Voice AI is effective for simple every-day tasks like “what's the weather today?” in a language spoken by lots of people, but often struggles with specialist subject areas or smaller languages. Voice technology is most effective for the “big' languages: English, Mandarin and Spanish.

Frank Murphy's friend Erik Dobell is co-hosting today's episode. Erik is a mentalist. His show, Impossibilities - Magic, Mind-Reading, and Mayhem! is in the Iris Theater at the Gatlinburg Space Needle. Get tickets at https://www.impossibilitiesshow.com  Frank is wearing another shirt he bought at an estate sale. Erik jokes that Frank might get misidentified by the son of the man whose shirt Frank is wearing. Erik once mistook another woman for his wife. He also approached a stranger's car thinking it was his friend's car. Frank often gets approached by strangers.  Frank took notice of his wife Jere's receipt from Chick-fil-A. It had her full name and the make and color of her car in case she ever uses curbside pickup. Frank wondered what happens when Jere takes Frank's car to Chick-fil-A.  Frank and Jere took their grandson Artie Rocket to see Erik's magic show. Frank taught a mind-reading trick to Artie. Erik does a mind-reading trick in which he tells what wishes audience members wrote on slips of paper and placed in a fishbowl on stage.  Frank and his friend Victoria Henley recorded a See More Smokies episode at the Impossibilities show. Erik took Frank's wedding ring and connected it to another man's ring. Frank isn't 100% positive that he got the right ring back.  Frank upgraded his wedding ring on the day of the O.J. Simpson slow-speed chase, June 17, 1994. Erik's birthday is June 17.  Frank worked at KROQ at the time. They did live broadcasts from outside the courthouse on the first and last days of the O.J. trial. KROQ sent redacted versions of the Kevin & Bean Show to the courthouse as entertainment for the jurors. Some other Los Angeles stations sent redacted tapes of their shows too. Frank received a thank-you letter from Judge Lance Ito.  Frank, Jere, and Artie rode the Moonshine Mountain Coaster both before and after they saw Erik's magic show. When they rode in the afternoon, the manager Klaus urged them to come back for a night ride.  When Tennessee Shine Co. purchased and rebranded Moonshine Mountain Coaster, they hired Klaus away from Rocky Top Mountain Coaster and upgraded all the equipment. Frank and Erik wonder what upgrades may be coming to Ober Gatlinburg now that it has been purchased by some members of the Baker family, who created Ole Smoky Moonshine.  Frank's grandsons are adept at using Amazon Alexa to play specific songs they want to hear. Frank doesn't listen to music recreationally. He can't help but analyze the way radio stations or online streaming services arrange their playlists. He turns up the radio when the deejay starts talking.  Instead of using the Roku box to watch television, Artie used the Xfinity Flex box because the remote has voice-control. The Xfinity box came with free Peacock, which allows Frank and Jere to watch Girls5eva. Artie watched prank videos and science experiment videos on YouTube.  Frank has started using “Hey Siri” because his wife gave him AirPods for his birthday. He uses an Irish Female voice for Siri. He tells it to fast-forward or rewind 30 seconds when listening to podcasts.  As a prank, Erik will go into stores and command their Alexa to play a hardcore rap song. Alexa's “wake word” can be changed to “Computer” like on Star Trek: The Next Generation and some versions of Batman.  Frank's dad bought a red phone for their house in the 1970s. Frank recalls that a former KROQ employee named Ralph Garman bought a replica of the Shakespeare bust from the ‘60s Batman series.  Erik has a Kit-Cat Klock in the lobby of his theater. Erik says the clock is in horror movies. Frank thinks that just the tail of the clock will be visible during the opening and closing segments that he and Victoria Henley recorded for the upcoming See More Smokies episode.  This episode is sponsored by Audible Premium Plus.

The analysis will show you how your portfolio is allocated among stocks, bonds, and cash; how much you have invested in each sector like tech and healthcare, and how well diversified your portfolio is across different regions as well. The analysis will even show concentrations in your portfolio of your top 10 stock holdings in your various investment holdings.  You'll receive a portfolio analysis report, as well as some expert insight from yours truly on how you can improve your portfolio, and any red flags that I see which could derail your investment portfolio.  The analysis is free & confidential with no strings attached.  If you'd like an under-the-hood portfolio analysis report, just send me an email to ashleym@truenorthra.com.

One Minute Retirement Tip with Ashley

Welcome to a new week here on the Retirement Quick Tips podcast.  I'm your host Ashley Micciche, co-owner of True North Retirement Advisors, an independent financial advisory practice managing $340 million in client assets. I'm a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, and I started this podcast because I love helping people just like you gain clarity and make a plan for the retirement you envision.  This week on the podcast, I'm taking a little summer break.I live in Oregon, in the suburbs of Portland, and summers here are amazing. With 3 little kids at home, I've decided to give myself a little extra free time in the month of July. This month, our plans include a few overnights at cub scout camp with my daughter, checking out a baseball game, picking blueberries, taking my kids to the pool and the splash pad, roasting smores, going golfing, and most importantly, consuming more slurpees than the legal limit in the month of July.  I will be back with new episodes on August 1st, but in the meantime, I'll be sharing with you a free resource each week on the podcast. This week, I'm sharing the most popular resource that I've given away before on the podcast, and then for each of the next 2 weeks I'll share with you 2 new resources that I haven't shared with you before on the podcast. I'm really excited to share these resources with you, but you'll need to check in each week if you'd like the other resources.  This week's free resource - by far the most requested on the podcast - is my age-based asset allocation cheat sheet.  It's a one-page guide to help you select the right mix of stocks and bonds in your portfolio based on your age.  I'm a big believer in asset allocation as the foundation of every investor's portfolio. Making sure we have the ideal mix of stocks and bonds is always the starting place with my own clients when determining how we should invest. Other factors, like risk are also important, but age trumps all.  If you would like to get my age-based asset allocation cheat sheet that helps you determine the right mix of stocks and bonds based on your age, just email me at ashleym@truenorthra.com. That's ashleym@truenorthra.com and I'll send that to you so you can figure out for yourself what mix is right for you.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening! Come on back next Monday for a brand new free resource.

Prepping Your Investment Portfolio For Continued Turmoil

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is mid-year commentary & outlook.    Today, I'm talking about what to do about the fact that the stock market, bond market, and the economy are all in the doldrums.    The most important thing to remind yourself of during gloomy times is: this too shall pass. Volatility in the markets and declines of 20% or more are a healthy and normal part of any economy and are unavoidable.    If you think that you can avoid the pain by selling, think again. You have to sell at the top when everyone else feels euphoric, and buy at the bottom when everyone else has lost all hope in the future. You have to be right both times, and I've never heard of any investor who was successful at timing the markets, ever!    So if you're going to stay invested, which I darn sure hope you are, what can you do?   First of all, look at your overall mix of stocks and bonds. If you have too little in stocks at the moment, do some selective rebalancing to take advantage of the current stock market decline by adding to stocks where appropriate. This rebalancing may only be small and on the margins, but adding to stocks after a 20% decline is a great time to start rebalancing.    If you have excess cash that should be invested, start putting it to work. I like investing over a period of 6-12 months from this point, which I think is prudent. If you invest the cash in equal amounts over that time, you'll be fully invested by the time this bear market is getting long in the tooth by historical norms, if it continues that long.    With the average stock down 30% this year, it may be tempted to buy just anything on sale. Don't fall for the temptation to buy the ugly yellow trucker hat that you'll never wear, because it was $3. $3 is still too much to pay if its an ugly hat that you'll never wear.  The same is true for stocks.  No matter what, always be discerning and look for quality. I continue to prefer high-quality, dividend growing stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs as the core of my client's portfolios. I'm a strong believer that this tilt toward predictable, resilient, and financially healthy companies with strong balance sheets and growing dividends will pay off for clients in the long-run. These companies have a history of weathering economic downturns exceptionally well, and coming out the other side in a stronger position, since many of their less healthy competitors fall away in a recession.Those are the kind of bargains you want to hunt for.   In bond portfolios, I continue to prefer bonds with high quality and stable credit ratings on the shorter-term end of the spectrum (less than 5-year maturity), floating rate bonds, and treasury-inflation protected bonds. This bond allocation with a tilt toward shorter term bonds will help you re-invest sooner for higher income if interest rates continue to rise, which I expect that they will.. As a result of these stock and bond portfolio allocations, most of our clients' portfolios are more stable than their comparable benchmarks, which is encouraging. And that's what you're looking for too if you're like most people nearing retirement - stability, income, and more predictable returns.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is mid-year commentary & outlook.  Today, I'm talking about the Mid-Year Update for the US economy. I am recording today's episode 1 day before GDP figures are released for the 2nd quarter, but if I were a betting woman, I would put money on the US economy already being in a recession.  By the time you listen to this episode, I'll have either been proven right or wrong, but I think that the U.S. economy is already in a recession, which is defined as a business cycle contraction and a general decline in economic activity. Two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth are required for an official recession.  GDP growth was already negative in the first quarter of 2022, so I'm holding my breath to see if that decline continues with this current quarter ending in June, which would officially put the U.S. economy in a recession. There are many reasons to be optimistic that an upcoming recession could be mild and short-lived, but I think it will be still be painful for many Americans, since the Fed is going to have less options to inject monetary stimulus into the economy to stabilize a downturn.  Remember the massive stimulus intended to save the economy in 2008 (i.e. QE, tax cuts, and TARP) and in 2020 (CARES Act, PPP, etc.)? The U.S. government and the Fed don't have these tools in their toolbox in 2022, because any additional stimulus would counteract efforts to reduce inflation, which will still take a while to abate even if we are already in a recession.  And if you're wondering what to do about all of this, tune in tomorrow, where I'll share with you how to prepare your investment portfolio for possibly worse to come.  That's it for today.

Here's a reason you should feel optimistic in regards to inflation over the long term: Inflation was at 8.58% in May 2022 (via YCharts inflation data). This Radio Shack ad from 1991 has 15 electronic devices, 13 of which you essentially have today in a single device in your pocket (your smartphone). A new iPhone today costs about $1000.The Echo Show 5 (Amazon Alexa smart speaker) is normally $84.99, but today it's selling for $34.99 (grab one here because that's a steal).

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is mid-year commentary & outlook.  Today, I'm providing an update on bonds for all you bond investors listening.  What's especially difficult about this current downturn is that even many conservative investors who are tilted more toward bonds in their portfolio are also experiencing double digit losses in their portfolios this year. Not only are stocks down 20%, but bonds are down too, and cash is no place to hide because inflation is so high.  The US Aggregate bond Index is a broad benchmark designed to track the performance of the publicly issued U.S.investment-grade debt. When looking at how bonds are holding up this year, it's a great place to look. And unfortunately, most investors don't like what they see: the index is down more than 10% this year.  It's no surprise that bonds are struggling this year. The Fed has been forced to get aggressive at raising interest rates due to inflation, and rising interest rates are bad news for bond investors - especially rates that rise quickly and to a large magnitude like we just say last month with the Fed raising rates by .75% at one time.  An important concept to always remember is that bond prices and interest rates have an inverse relationship. So if interest rates are going down like they have spent most of the last 30 years doing, bond prices will increase. On the flipside, when interest rates go up, like they are right now, bond prices drop, and the more rates rise and the faster they rise, the more bonds get hammered.  The length of time between now and when your bonds mature has a big influence on how your bond portfolio is holding up at the moment. Bonds that are many years away from their maturity dates - 10 years or more, are getting absolutely hammered this year. On the other hand, bonds that mature later this year have been pretty stable.  Now if you own a lot of bonds, or even some longer term bonds, that doesn't mean you should abandon your bond portfolio, but it does present an opportunity to reposition your bond portfolio, which I'll talk more about on Saturday, when I talk about how we're investing in this current market environment.  That's it for today.
