A longstanding investor term is “Climbing The Wall of Worry”. What does it mean and how can the concept help us?
A client that I have served for 15 years, through two Bear Market cycles, called this week asking, “Should I go ahead and cash in now?”
Many of us remember the Tech Wreck of 2001 and 2002 as well as the Crisis of 2008. Lamentation of not selling became a time national investor cult as the few who “went to cash” taunted with shadow joy those less fortunate. The portfolios of 1999 and 2007 had been overweight with overpriced tech stocks and bank stocks respectively. It was a game of overpaying for a house of cards whose only solution was to bail out first.
What was the better solution? This week’s NetWorth Radio program presents longer term strategies that address the strategies not dependent on playing timing roulette in overpriced assets. Join us and be empowered to make great decisions.
Speaking of worry! It is tax time. Just so you know, if you are a McGowanGroup client, congratulations, your CPA will get everything they need in a secure document vault link with team support for their questions. In other words, we got this and you don’t have to gather anything concerning the assets that are held with McGowanGroup utilizing Pershing as our third party custodian.
