Tax cuts 2.0, mid-term elections, and more! – JT Taylor, managing director and chief political strategist at Hedgeye Potomac Research, gives us the inside scoop on an under-the-radar story involving fiscal policy that could have a huge impact on the stock market. Could tax cuts 2.0 be on the way, and if so, could it spark the same volatility we saw the first round? Also, a forecast for the mid-term elections and more!

Ask Andy: Investing for a grandchild – Jack writes in with a common question: What is the best way to start college savings for a new grandchild? Brokerage account with an ETF? UTMA? 529 plan with an S&P 500 index fund? That’s a lot of numbers, letters, and lingo, so Andy breaks down Jack’s options and issues he needs to consider.

LIVE portfolio review – Joe and his wife have found themselves in a tight spot with credit card debt, multiple loans to pay off, plus a mortgage and other expenses. To help pay down some debts, Joe is tempted to take a short-term loan from his 401(k), but that is his only source of retirement income. Andy walks Joe through the steps to not only pay down these debts while keeping his 401(k) intact, but also re-allocate to get his money working for him again.

The apple of investors’ eyes – Apple is the latest tech giant to consume the headlines, and for good reason: It’s the first company to reach a $1 trillion market cap. Check out the chart below documenting the historic rise of this great American company.
