I recently asked an orthopedist: “What is better for your health, walking or running?” Without any hesitation, he smiled and said, “Running. It’s putting my kids through college.” My wife, Marea, runs three to five miles most days, while I briskly walk 3.5 miles around the neighborhood in slightly less than an hour.  So, “medically [...]

In Golf and Stocks, Anything Can Happen

2016-01-28T10:08:56+00:00

Last weekend, I went on a three-day “golfing vacation” with seven friends and let’s face it, you never know what can happen. Four of us were scheduled to leave on Friday afternoon at 4:40, but we actually took off at around 10:15 in the evening, so we had five mind-numbing hours of male bonding. Not [...]

This has been a very tough week, both for investors and Powerball enthusiasts. In fact, it was the worst opening week in market history.

Back to reality. That’s what the first week of January feels like. And, didn’t the equity markets give us a healthy taste of reality on Monday! Back to work (although most of us probably never really stopped working) and Back to the Future, but not in a DeLorean. I’m not talking about the film, although [...]

So Long 2015, Hello 2016!

2015-12-23T08:50:11+00:00

Like many of you, I can’t quite believe that the holiday season is already upon us. This is my last blog of the year, so I’ll keep it short and let you get back to thinking about last minute shopping and drinking eggnog… I would first like to announce our 2016 Retirement Health Care Cost [...]

An update on the DOL’s Fiduciary Rule

2015-12-11T15:15:13+00:00

The upcoming Department of Labor’s (DOL) fiduciary rule has been all anyone's been talking about, (if they’re not talking about Social Security, that is). To recap, according to the current proposal, financial professionals will be legally obligated to disclose any fees and/or conflicts of interest associated with investments products they recommend for their clients.
