New Year's Investment Review

The market seems to be recovering, although it is hardly a sure, sound recovery at this point.

While most advisors agree that we're on the way back, timing and direction are not certain.

At New Year's, you should always review your portfolio.

  • Are you allocated among asset classes properly?

  • Do you have securities that have lost so much value that they can't recover?
  • Give your investments a thorough checkup to determine if any changes should be made.

    As part of doing so, look at the possible tax savings that could result from selling any losers.

    Remember that these losses are limited to the amount of gains you've had for the year plus $3,000.


    Do you need some real help getting your business on the internet and getting it noticed?

    Without it costing you an arm and a leg?

    Check out Internet Marketing Mentoring.

    You'll receive a real live experienced internet marketing coach phoning you once a week for either 6, 12 or 24 one-half hour sessions, teaching you the ins-and-outs of getting your business noticed on the net.

    And it's all for a LOT LESS than you'd expect to pay for such expertise.
