How to Invest When Your Crystal Ball is on the Fritz

Translucent Globe on Euros and DollarsIf you could see the future, diversification would be a bad idea. It’s simple logic: if you knew which assets were going to outperform all the others in the coming year, you’d simply put all your (nest)eggs in one basket and reap the rewards of perfect foresight. Of course, the world is a bit messier than that, though it can be hard to remember sometimes, especially when it feels like someone’s throwing a party and you weren’t invited. Learn why this is especially true when we’re talking about the Dow Jones Industrial Average or the S&P 500 Index and see illustrations that prove the challenge of predicting next year’s winners from yesterday’s or today’s.

Before you rush into making the decision about when to claim your benefits and how much to claim, be sure you have a good understanding of all your options and know what Yeske Buie can do to help you.
