The Show:

Too often, people react and don’t plan for financial storms properly. When you’re in the middle of a tough situation, it can feel like it’s never going to end. But that’s why we diversify and don’t put all of our eggs in one basket.

On today’s episode, we talk about financial forecasting and why it’s important to have a trusted financial advisor. First up, let’s talk about diversification.

“Whenever you diversify and spread out the risk, you’re always going to be underperforming in some area of the market or the economy that’s hot, and right now that’s tech stocks,” said Don. “But the upside to diversifying is you’re not as likely to get hammered when the market takes a turn.”

Right now, hot stocks include Facebook, Apple, Netflix, Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Tesla. Some of those stocks are trading at more than 100 times their earnings. Tesla, for example, has quadrupled in price since the end of March.

Before you take any action on your financial forecast, it’s always best to talk with a professional. Speaking of professionals, should financial advisors help you with things like social security, life insurance and legacy planning? Don answers that question.
