Elizabeth: Welcome back. Today Wall Street hopes to build on yesterday’s modest gains. The Dow ended up 54 points, but that’s after a big drop on Tuesday.
Eric: That was attributed to the volatility with North Korea. And here to discuss that is financial advisor Kurt Pearson. This situation has a lot of people worried.
Kurt: It really does. We haven’t dealt with a wall of worry and the stock market for quite a while. If an event occurs, I think people will see that change overnight.
Elizabeth: Switching gears, it feels like fall out there, and you say this is a good time to refocus our money habits.
Kurt: Sometimes we get more intentional about our schedule, it is a good time to get more intentional about our money. Back to the North Korea thing, it is a good time to evaluate our investments. Returns have been pretty decent overall. It would be a good time to be intentional about looking at the 401(k) statement, cash flow, making some goals between now and the end of the year. If you have an advisor, that is perfect. Mapping out some extra time so you can devote some time to that. Evaluating insurance is good to do that, making sure you’re getting the best deal.
Eric: Just have that check out.
Kurt: Very good analogy.
Eric: Thanks so much for coming in this morning.
Elizabeth: If you have any questions, call Kurt at 327-1020.
