Valuations don’t matter… until they do!
Amazon, Google, Apple they’re all just making money hand over fist. They’re the stocks of the future. Or are they the stocks of last year? Either way, we’re still going to order things off of Amazon. We’re still going to be buying our Apple phones, our Apple watches, and our Apple brains. So how can these massive, big tech companies that are the crème de la crème in the US all of a sudden not be hot anymore? It makes no sense. Or does it?
But valuations don’t matter until they do.
You’re investing in great companies, but is it also a great stock?
This week on the tipping point: URGENCY in financial planning
Most of us, if we’re honest with ourselves, find it very easy to procrastinate when it comes to our financial planning issues. We at Payne Capital Management know this better than anybody! Dealing with people and their finances is a very tricky thing. So in this episode, we will discuss some scenarios that might light a fire under your sense of urgency.
A lot of people think, “my goal is to make as much money as I can” but making money is NOT a goal. Why do you need to make money? What’s the purpose of money? Understand what you’re trying to accomplish and have your end game in mind. Do you want to have a lifetime of income that you cannot outlive? Do you want to have a big ol’ pile of go-to-hell money so that you don’t have to work for the rest of your life? Are you taking more risks than necessary to achieve those goals? Are you taking enough? Check out the episode and we will help answer some of these questions!
