As the world (more slowly) turns

By Kyle Tetting
The performance of stocks in May reflects growing uncertainty about the state of global economic growth. The trade war with China has exacerbated the problem, but it is unfair to blame the entirety of the decline on increased tariffs and ongoing uncertainty. With strong year-to-date returns and growing uncertainty, it can be tempting for investors to try to time an exit from stocks. Current concerns also coincide with misguided investment wisdom to “sell in May.” While it’s never too late to revisit allocations, for a variety of reasons, it is not time to abandon stocks.

Looking forward for long-term investors

By Bob Landaas

Two of the issues that are weighing on financial markets currently are solvable and give investors hope after the disappointments of last year.

Stock market reflecting lower expectations

By Kyle Tetting
The year 2018 marked the worst in a decade for broad measures of U.S. stocks. After some late January weakness, stocks had been trending higher for most of the year before succumbing to uncertainty in the fourth quarter. Uncertainty is always part of investing in stock markets – and, long-term, creates opportunity – but the fourth quarter of 2018 was unnerving in its reminder of how quickly trends can turn.



Retirees: How to handle stock sell-offs

Gyrations in the stock market can play havoc with investors’ emotions and lead to impulsive moves. In a MONEY TALK VIDEO, Dave Sandstrom explains why investors should not let short-term market volatility disrupt important retirement decisions but instead rely on balanced investment portfolios and prudent withdrawal plans.
