Radio Show Highlights
Trump’s impact on markets
Financial lessons from Johnny Depp
Too much company stock
In this week’s show, Andy and Bob talk with financial expert Chris Bouffard about the impact President Trump has been having on markets, particularly through his messages on Twitter, and what it means for everyday investors.
Also in this week’s show:
Johnny Depp is considered by many to be an excellent actor – but he’s made some not-so-excellent financial decisions. Bob and Andy discuss what we can learn from his mishaps and why his experiences reinforce the importance of your advisor following the fiduciary standard.
Did you know that having too much of your retirement savings invested in your employer’s stock is one of the most common – and potentially devastating – mistakes retirement investors can make? Bob and Andy discuss why so many people make this unnecessary gamble and why it’s a bad idea.
Bob and Andy talk with a listener about why having all of his investments in one fund is dangerous and another listener who is wondering if there are certain investments that she should be exploring now that Trump is in the oval office.
