Frazier Allen: Are You Ready for an Encore Career?

September 24, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – Four and a half million. That’s how many retired Americans, over age 50, decided to go back to work or take on part-time volunteer roles after retiring. And there are another 21 million who say they’re ready to join them, according to a 2014 Encore Career survey.

The reasons vary. Some want to make the most of their talents; some want social interaction; still others seek to keep their minds sharp and their bodies busy. The extra money doesn’t hurt either, especially since there are several unknowns that can cloud your retirement picture (e.g., longevity, inflation and long-term care needs).

More and more Americans are going back to work or volunteering after retirement.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 18th, 2016

September 18, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Fed Governor Lael Brainard, a dove, presented her case for why the central bank should delay an increase in short-term interest rates. While her views are her own (not representative of the Fed as a whole), a more hawkish tilt would have raised the odds of a September rate hike.

The key economic data reports were on the soft side of expectations, but were still consistent with moderate growth in the near term. Retail sales disappointed in August. Industrial production unwound a seasonal quirk that boosted July figures. CPI figures surprise slightly to the upside.

Frazier Allen: Five Strategies to Address Concentrated Equity

September 13, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The risk involved in owning too much (usually defined as 30% or more) of one stock, what’s known as concentrated equity, is pretty apparent – too many eggs in one basket. What’s trickier is why some investors have such difficulty remedying a situation that can pose a real threat to their long-term financial security.

Concentrated equity can arise in many ways. Investors sometimes inherit large amounts of a single stock.

Owning too much of a single security can be hazardous to your wealth.

Frazier Allen: Can Debt be used to your advantage?

August 29, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – “Debt” tends to call to mind a negative connotation. But, when used strategically, certain kinds can serve as useful financial tools, affording you access to more liquidity and potential growth down the road.

Before setting out to pay your debt off as quickly as possible, consider the various factors at play. You may find that the long-term advantages of holding certain types of debt can outweigh the benefits of paying it off sooner, so be sure to discuss the benefits and considerations with a knowledgeable financial professional.

For some, smart borrowing can be a useful tool, but it’s not one-size-fits-all.

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – In her Jackson Hole speech, Fed Chair Janet Yellen was not expected to provide any significant clues about what will happen at the September 20-21 policy meeting.

Frazier Allen: Are your estate and financial plans shock-proof?

August 23, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Retirement is a time to enjoy family, hobbies, travel, volunteering, and maybe even taking a job that sounds fun and keeps you active. You may be in great health today and can’t imagine a time when you wouldn’t be able to do all the things you’ve dreamed about.

While we all hope to live independently throughout retirement and plan to take care of ourselves, it’s still wise to put contingency plans into place, to shock-proof our financial and estate plans just in case.

Don’t wait until “what if?” becomes “what is.”

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of August 21st, 2016

August 21, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The FOMC minutes (from the July 26th-27th policy meeting) showed that officials were divided on the timing of the next rate hike. Some felt that the labor market had already tightened enough and that the Fed risked generating financial excesses by keeping rates so low for so long.

Others felt that there was plenty of time to wait for more information and that it would be harder to correct course if the Fed moved too rapidly. Among voting FOMC members, the hawkish view (those wanting to raise rates sooner rather than later) appeared to be a minority.
