  • 6. Advantages and disadvantages of TIPS for 2010 and beyond

    (Feb 23rd - 11 am Central)
  • 7. Things to know about corporate bonds
    In 2009 all we heard was corporations are making more profits and there has been a significant improvement in corporate earnings. Does that translate to a better pricing for their bonds? Matt and I will discuss the environment and explore which industry sectors and companies (and their bonds) will benefit the most from any changes in interest rates.

    (Mar 23rd - 11 am Central)
  • 8. Why owning treasuries can be very different this decade
    Treasuries returned 13.7% and -3.6% in 2008 and 2009 respectively. With 61% foreign ownership you should carefully review your future decisions. The Federal reserve printed record amounts of new debt during 2009. How will this impact your future returns? Pros and cons of treasury ownership discussion with Matt and I. Join us.

    (Apr 27th - 11 am Central)
  • 9. Essential tips for Municipal bonds
    In the past municipal bonds have been a great source for tax free income on high income earners. They rallied in 2009 producing 12.9% return. With all states having massive deficit problems and all the talk of tax rates heading higher (covering deficits), how will municipalities deal with this and what should you avoid?

    (May 25th - 11 am Central)
  • 10. Hedging strategies that institutions utilize
    For many years large institutions (endowments and non-profits) used hedging strategies that were not accessible to retail investors. Technology has changed this and now some of the most advanced hedging strategies are available. Successful implementation of these strategies still requires substantial expertise and experience. Learn some basics and avoid terrible mistakes from others.

    (Jun 22nd - 11 am Central)
  • 11. Individual bonds vs. bond mutual funds
    Anyone with more than $200k should be investigating individual bond ownership. With a lot of choices on bond mutual funds, fees, turnover and expense ratio can be pretty costly if you don’t know what you are buying into let alone cost basis ownership. Did I forget to mention management fee’s? What should you look for? Join us and find out.

    (Jul 27th - 11 am Central)
  • 12. Strategies to enhance your fixed income portfolio yield
    All we hear is deficits, increasing interest rates and more uncertainty in both the real estate and commercial loans. With global central banks printing more money, the sounds of inflation is beginning to ring louder and louder. How can you protect your portfolio’s monthly cash flow? Are there any yield enhancements available?
    https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/344904875
    (Aug 24th - 11 am Central)
  • 13. Why bonds alone wont make a portfolio safe
    Have you seen a freight train hitting a stationary car? Well that might be you if you are only investing in bonds. With interest rate increases, yields will come down and inflation can eat into your purchasing power. Don’t let increasing interest rates change your standard of living. Sometimes safety can lead into excessive risk if you are not careful.

    (Sep 28th - 11 am Central)
  • 14. Things they don’t tell you about closed end funds
    You have heard of mutual funds and I am sure at some point you came across closed end funds. If you ever wondered what they are, well this is your opportunity. They could be a very powerful tool if used correctly. They could also destroy you, if you are not aware of their disadvantages. Learn when to use and when to avoid.
    https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/332319363
    (Oct 26th - 11 am Central)
  • 15. How high yield bonds can increase yield
    Just in case you missed high yield bonds in 2009 they performed at 58.9%. That does not mean they will do the same in 2010 but you should always consider them as part of your asset allocation. How much and why? Join us so Matt and I can walk you through the pro’s and con’s.

    (Nov 23rd - 11 am Central)
  • 16. Bond market and inflation outlook
    By the time Dec 2010 has arrived we should know a little more about interest rates (hopefully), direction of the economy and also reflect back on 2009. There will also be a 2010 (and beyond) outlook and discussion on portfolio positioning and hedging items. Don’t miss this unique opportunity. Yeah I know plenty of xmas parties and holidays before the 2010 new year.
