Moving Forward

Do you remember looking at lists of ‘stressors’ and seeing your problems? Life happens. “Yes.” It is there. It’s OK to be upset or almost unglued, because ours is a common and real problem.

Investment choices, growth or dividends

April 23, 2019

I’m Miriam  Neff-with STARTING OVER FINANCIALLY, and I’m Valerie Neff Hogan, and we’re here to talk about money   M Picking the products in your investment portfolio is important, personal, and should be YOUR choices.  I spoke recently to a retired, single woman whose portfolio is determined by others.  They’ve changed their model to charge her more for those services.   V She needs to first look at what she is invested in.  Lets start with a simple differentiation.  Dividend stocks are popular with some.  Long term income, large companies, proven track record.  Advantage, that dividend.  Disadvantage, slower growth.
