A quick review of your financial health is today’s topic.Â I am taking a brief break from talking about investments.Â Instead I am going to load you up with planning ideas and even tools that I use to keep my financial house in order.
Estate Planning & Risk Management (I know that it is dark to talk about death or other bad events that could occur in your life, but it is important to discuss).
Wills – If you have children you must have a Will.Â Otherwise, you are leaving their future in the hands of the state.Â I find it hard to believe that the state would be better at determining your families future instead of you.Â DON’T PLAY WITH FIRE….. GET A WILL!!!

First you guys need to know my thoughts on what is known as Efficient Market Theory
Efficient Market – Since everyone has the same information about a stock, the price of a stock should reflect the knowledge and expectations of all investors. The bottom line is that an investor should not be able to beat the market since there is no way for him/her to know something about a stock that isn’t already reflected in the stock’s price.
I feel that this Theory holds true for Large Cap. US Companies. There are really only 1,000 Large Cap Companies (Cap Value > $10 Billion). Meanwhile there are pundits, analyst, and advisors like myself on every street corner to evaluate these 1,000 stocks. With the vast amounts of information and the speed that information now reaches us through the Internet, Cable Business Channels, AM Business Talk Radio how could you know anymore than anyone else?
