    Step Up! The Gain is Gone - REMIX | Series 10.6

    Step Up! The Gain is Gone - REMIX | Series 10.6

    Certain assets will now forgive all taxable gains, but what about losses?
    Now this original episode, we spoke about how if you inherit what they call taxable, so non IRA or annuity type assets, so really essentially, if money's in a joint account or an individual account, something like that, as of 2022, that entire gain would be forgiven. (01:06)So you would let's say inherit that $500 and that would be your kind of starting point. You wouldn't have to pay tax on that $450 growth that they experienced, that whole thing would kind of be thrown out and your new starting point would be the $500 value of where it is today. (03:10)So while avoiding gains is possible, so is missing out on losses. And for 2022 there may be losses all around to harvest, you know, that's what they call it, harvesting the losses, both for you and maybe your parents as well. (04:19)
    Quote for the episode: "So taking a look at what this is and if harvesting any losses makes sense for your situation, this would potentially be worth looking into for something to do before the end of the year with your advisor, most likely, if you're not capable of doing that on your own."

    The Stock Market Doesn't Care About Political Parties - REMIX | Series 10.5

    The Stock Market Doesn't Care About Political Parties - REMIX | Series 10.5

    Overall, what the market tends to be influenced by is certainty vs uncertainty.
    Studies have been done on the president, the House, the Senate, combining all three of these in different ways to see which one of those has been the most favorable to the stock market in past history. And what they found after what I'm sure was a lot of work is that there is no strong correlation for any particular combination over the long term. (03:19)One strong positive indicator, however, is the midterm elections themselves. So not who wins the elections, but the elections themselves. (03:56)Going back even further to 1950, if we look at every 12 month period, immediately following the midterm election date, it has been positive. Every single one going back to 1950 with an average of 15.1%. (04:23)
    Quote for the episode: "Overall, what the stock market tends to be influenced by more than anything is certainty versus uncertainty." (05:01)

    How to Talk With Parents About Money - REMIX | Series 10.4

    How to Talk With Parents About Money - REMIX | Series 10.4

    Open communication with your parents about money may be more important than you think, especially now.
    So how much are our parents affected? Can they still recover their expenses long term, if they're in these heavily bond weighted portfolios? (03:11)They have a different perspective from us, they're a different generation. (05:37)But there are more and more products coming out that approach risk in different ways. You may come across terms such as buffered annuities or buffered ETFs for example. (07:20)
    Quote for the episode: "Just like you should at least be asking your advisor if you have concerns about your own portfolio, your parents really should be doing the same." (07:44)

    You May Already Be a Future Millionaire - REMIX | Series 10.3

    You May Already Be a Future Millionaire - REMIX | Series 10.3

    Keep a long term view, this might just be traffic on the road to your destination.
    ...what we can do is still pause and take a look when it comes to finances just like Lauren and I do with that last luggage check. You know, what do we actually need, keeping things in perspective. (02:14)Since it took a year to recover in our example now there's only 19 years left for that same $250,000 to grow during our total 20 year period of time that we set. So instead now we've arriving at $1 million with only 19 years to grow, we arrive at a lower number, obviously, around $940,000. (04:43)Yes, it's upsetting but it's upsetting because money is a tool that we're relying on to accomplish our goals. So let's frame it back into money being a tool back into the question of how will this ultimately impact us achieving our goals. (06:11)
    Quote for the episode: "So if we can still very reasonably expect to be on a substantially similar path for our goals, if we can frame our mindset as such, then we can really look at all of this a little bit more as perhaps traffic on the highway to our destination." (06:26)

    Stocks Lead, Don't Follow - REMIX | Series 10.2

    Stocks Lead, Don't Follow - REMIX | Series 10.2

    Reminding ourselves how the stock market tends to work, how it is a leading indicator, can be a helpful emotional refresher course.
    The stock market, if you remember is what they call a leading indicator. Basically, what that means is that it acts in advance of what people think is going to happen. (02:27)Think the 2008 mortgage crisis or 2020 COVID. There was very little clarity at the time on what was going to happen next. And that uncertainty is what drove the volatility. (03:12)So what you can do is really the hardest thing sometimes and that's just not touching it. You are probably reacting off of past information. (05:09)
    Quote for the episode: "So if we accept that things are going to move ahead of time, that leading indicator before we will have a chance to generally react, then we can potentially avoid some of the big mistakes that too many investors make by pulling out when things are already low, and generally not adding money back in until things have significantly rebounded, leaving them with much less than they ought to have had, if they just not touched it throughout the ride."

    Unknowns Are Scary - REMIX | Series 10.1

    With more education, there's less fear.
    A lot of times when it comes to finances is we don't even know what we don't know. (03:19)When stocks sell down, though you have that other area of your portfolio, right? Bonds, fixed income, they are more conservative, they will help us balance out those losses. (05:28)In the 2008 financial crisis and the 2020 pandemic, bonds did hold up considerably better than stocks. However, this time around, the reason for the losses were rising interest rates. (05:49)
    Quote for the episode: Maybe now instead of saying "why is this happening to my portfolio", you can say, "I kind of get why this is now happening to my portfolio. (07:21)
