2. This Is Not a Market to Fear. It’s Winning Time!

I say that despite the S&P 500 having posted a 16% year-todate decline, while the Nasdaq 100 has lost a whopping 25%. Bonds, the usual alter-ego to stocks, have been anything but that, with Barclays Aggregate Index off 10% and Corporate bond index down a frightening 16%. Any type of traditional asset allocation is in double-digit negative territory. Where’s the winning in that?! — Rob Isbitts

3. The Perfect Investment Strategy for Today’s Uncertain Markets

And many investors are asking the same question: Should I sell everything… Or go “all in” on the bargains that are forming in many stocks? This is the wrong question. You see, most people treat investing with an all-in or all-out mentality… They’ll hold everything when markets are doing well, and look to sell it all when markets turn bad. — Stephen McBride

I was thinking about cryptocurrencies and the fact that most of us have heard of bitcoin and Ethereum. You may have heard of Dogecoin and Shiba Inu. Maybe you even know Cordana and Polygon.

5. How Do Investors Navigate Market Volatility?

After a peaceful 2021, volatility has picked up meaningfully in 2022, with corrections across major indices. The S&P 500 is down -18% from its January 3rd peak, while a brutal sell-off in tech has sent the NASDAQ down -29% from its November 19th high. Compounding the pain in equity markets is the nearly -10% drop in U.S. aggregate bonds. — Meera Pandit

11. When “Financial Planning” Is Not Financial Planning

Whenever I surf television cable news channels, I can’t help but notice the plethora of ads for financial planning. Some of them sound compelling, even to me. I often find myself thinking, “Dang, that’s exactly what we do.” Then I notice the incongruency, because in almost every case, the ads are being run by companies that sell financial products or are owned by huge insurance companies. — Rick Kahler
