In case you’ve been following along, the Jets have now won 5 games this year. In each of those 5 wins, I have appeared on the Mullooly Asset Podcast! Coincidence? Maybe. Am I going to risk it by NOT being on the podcast this week? Absolutely not.
Here’s what I’ve been reading today:
- In this week’s video, Tom references a survey done by AARP that shows 45% of people would rather go to the dentist than meet with an investment advisor. People deserve complete transparency when working with an investment advisor. When folks don’t understand their investments and aren’t provided with all the details, it leads to bad results.
- In this week’s podcast, Tom, Tim and Casey discuss the eye-popping results of a survey that asked millionaires how they are feeling about retirement. This leads the guys into a broader conversation about changing market dynamics, like fixed income products offering better rates, and what they are seeing underneath the hood of the stock market.
- Diets and financial decisions have plenty of similarities. A lot of requires you to make choices in the short-term that will help you in the long-term if you stay out of your own way. Ben talks about how bear markets are kind of like fad diets in his latest post.
- It’s been about 6 months straight now of inflation being over 8%. Why hasn’t it budged? The Fed has been raising rates and taking steps to tame inflation. Ben looks at what’s going on with inflation readings in this post.
