Marty Allen once wrote, “A study of economics reveals that the best time to buy anything is last year.” I feel that this is the story of how most people feel about investing. So often I find people retroactively kicking themselves for not buying internet stocks (and selling them before they tanked) or real estate...

There’s one asset that I’ve personally seen cause people to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars. I’ve seen this asset ruin families and affect them for generations to come. The tragedy of this asset is that you can’t sell it or get rid of it. It’s a risky asset that you have no other option...

As I write this, the Dow and S&P 500 just closed out about on another post-Financial Crisis peak (if you can pretend for a second that the Financial Crisis is over). The S&P 500 needs another 14.61% and the Dow needs another 8.7% and each will be setting all time record prices. Not only that,...
