Guiding investors through years of changes

Ron Hansen has been helping investors since 1975, when information was remote, transactions cost $40 apiece minimum and few Americans saved for retirement. At the end of 2019, Ron is himself retiring. He’s ending a career transformed beyond recognition by computer technology, government policies and industry evolution. […]



Diversification surpasses manufacturing

By Joel Dresang
Sometimes my understanding of how the world works is corrupted by my past experience. By several measures, the U.S. is now in a manufacturing recession, but apparently, it’s not as bad as I would have thought. […]



Expectations of less-than-Great recession

By Kyle Tetting
Many investors see the ghosts of past weakness at every turn. We’ve come to expect the worst as a result of the severe bear market that accompanied the Great Recession.
In many ways, the slow growth of the last decade resulted from a constant expectation that the next shoe could drop at any time. Transparency around the fallibility of stocks and the economy, gleaned from the depths of the Great Recession, may make the next downturn less severe.



Investor trade-off: Risk vs. return

Especially amid market volatility, investors need to weigh the potential risks they take on as they consider reaching for higher returns. Paige Radke explains in a MONEY TALK VIDEO from the 2019 Investment Outlook Seminar. […]

A MONEY TALK VIDEO captures the second of two seminars in September.



Investments consider more stakeholders

By Joel Dresang
Although the Business Roundtable’s about-face seems remarkable, it is part of a trend suggesting that businesses—and their shareholders—can benefit from being more mindful of a broader array of stakeholders. In turn, it’s possible for investors to uphold their values without abandoning the value of their portfolios. […]



Staying active as conditions change

Active management offers flexibility not allowed in less-expensive index-tracking passive funds. The latitude that active managers have for managing risk as well as for adjusting to market fluctuations and changes in the business cycle make such funds a valuable component in a balanced investment portfolio. […]



Adjust expectations, not allocations

By Kyle Tetting
The challenge for investors is to weigh the tailwind of falling interest rates against the backdrop of a slowing global economy. […]



Summer 2019 Investment Outlook

Amid record but slowing economic growth and solid midyear stock returns, financial markets face strong valuations, weak earnings and—thanks to an about-face in Federal Reserve policy—lower interest rates. In a Money Talk Video, Bob Landaas and Kyle Tetting review the latest developments and explain what they mean to investors.



Historic economic growth vs. long-term investing

The U.S. economy is in uncharted waters. It has been expanding for more than 10 years—an unprecedented streak, based on National Bureau of Economic Research calculations dating back to 1854. As with bull markets for stocks, economic expansions don’t die of old age, but some people just get anxious when they think there’s been too much of a good thing. […]



Celebrate nationally, think globally

By Joel Dresang
On the day devoted to celebrating America, I noticed how small the world is. My discovery was meaningful in light of ongoing financial developments.
