Want to Retire? Avoid These Three Tragic Investing Mistakes

When it comes to investing, historical returns show us that, for the most part, a buy-and-hold strategy will always outperform an active one. This means that, once you have a concrete investing plan in place, you should stick with it through thick and thin — and no matter what the market does on any given day. But that doesn’t mean you can randomly buy stocks and bonds and expect things to go your way. Well, you can, I guess...but you will likely regret it for years to come if you do. In today’s podcast, I interviewed Peter Lazaroff, financial expert and author of Making Money Simple: The Complete Guide to Getting Your Financial House in Order and Keeping It That Way Forever to find out the biggest mistakes even the most well-intentioned investors make with their portfolios over time. His answers may surprise you, so you don’t want to miss out.  Show Notes & Links: www.youstaywealthy.com/43 DISCLAIMER: This podcast is for informational and entertainment purposes only and should not be relied upon as a basis for investment decisions.

Your Old 401(k): to Rollover, or Not to Rollover

Did you know? The average cost per year for a 401(k) participant is 2.2% of their account balance, according to SmartAsset.   This number is rapidly declining, but even if you cut it in half, it would still be concerning.  When you leave a company, you have three options for dealing with your 401(k): Leave it at your previous employer Transfer it to your new employer Roll it over to an IRA at a trusted custodian And, given how much you might be paying in fees, I don't recommend neglecting this part of your financial plan. In today's podcast episode, we talk about each of these options and help you decide which is best.  --- If you have any more questions, please contact us at podcast@staywealthsandiego.com Thanks for Listening Be sure to subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Android, or wherever you get your podcasts.  And feel free to drop us a line at podcast@staywealthsandiego.com Find show notes and more information at http://www.staywealthysandiego.com/35 DISCLAIMER: This podcast is for informational and entertainment purposes only and should not be relied upon as a basis for investment decisions.

Financial Myth #4: A Traditional 401(k) is Better Than a Roth 401(k) When Saving for Retirement

When you contribute to retirement accounts, you typically have two options: Contribute pre-tax dollars today, pay taxes in retirement when you withdraw (Traditional 401k/IRA) Contribute after-tax dollars today, withdraw tax-free in retirement (Roth 401k/IRA) Ask 100 people and 99 of them will likely choose option one. A tax deduction certainly sounds better than no tax deduction. I get it. I love tax deductions. But I think the Roth 401(k) is actually the right decision for most retirement investors.
