Stock Market Valuations, COVID, and What Is Important To You – Finger Financial Five #43


“When everything is uncertain, everything that is important becomes clear.” – Unknown

Stock market valuations, delta variants, reduced government stimulus, and inflation are just some of the worries investors have right now.   For your viewing pleasure, here are a few visuals on these topics:

We are currently at herd immunity.

If you have cash as an investment, you are losing to inflation. There are uses for cash, however.

Most people I have talked to are overweight growth.

Many people are underweight international.

Remember it is a market of stocks, not a stock market.  Not all stocks are overvalued.

It was raining when I went to work today; I turned on my windshield wipers. It was hot; I turned on the AC.  I hit a red light; I stopped.  It turned green; I proceeded.  If we wait for all green lights, we will never leave the house.  We adjust as we go.  We keep moving forward.

You can do all of this yourself and go against the “average investor” statistics…

Or you can focus your attention what is important to you.  So, what is important to you?  What makes your heart sing? Happy to let you know how we can help.  Feel free to give me a call at 843-970-1043, email me at [email protected], or CLICK HERE to setup a phone appointment.

On the lighter side, Elliott started school this week.  He is a Junior at the Academy of Arts, Science, and Technology (AAST).  My back is feeling pretty good.  I have been swimming like a fish and running some.  Need to get back on bike.  Ironman is 30 days away.

Hope all is well with you and your family,
