What year are we in?
Inflation is the highest it has been in 40 years, oil is through the roof, we have a Jimmy Carter-like president in the White House, it’s like we’re in 1982! Here’s the thing you have to remember, back in 1982 when we had this high inflation rate, inflation started to go up and we had the beginning of the greatest bull market in history, the S&P and the Dow. Let’s say the Dow was at 800 it’s now closing in on 36,000. Just keep that in mind, things looked really dire in 1982 and if you sat on the sidelines, you missed out on one heck of a move!
This week on the tipping point: Underrated, simple philosophies you can use
At our firm, Payne Capital Management, we have a mantra we have used for years: simplicity over complexity. We know we’re in an industry that loves to sell products that are complicated, financial strategies that are high in fees that no one even understands that don’t even end up working out that well.
The number one rule we have with every portfolio, whether it’s a 401k, IRA, joint account, you name it, we want every single investment in that portfolio to be liquid. So liquid that you can call any day and we can have all of your money in your checking account the next day.
Knowing what you own is as important as being able to access it! You have to put your portfolio into the stress test. It’s not about when things are good. What you always have to think about is when things go bad, and they will, is am I set up to weather the storm. When the getting is good it’s hard to see those pitfalls. Check out the episode for more simple underrated philosophies you can use with your wealth plan.
