Question: My uncle has a lot of money but he is not a happy man. He’s always grumpy, he’s never at home and his kids don’t like him.

By Mike Jones, posted October 16th, 2014

Podcast - Overcorrection

By Byron Moore, posted October 6th, 2014

The following segment first aired on KEDM 90.3 on July 30, 2014

Risk tolerance changes with assets and age

By Byron Moore, posted October 6th, 2014

The following column was published in The News Star on Saturday, October 4, 2014.

Question: I was making an investment with my guy and he got me to fill out something called a risk tolerance questionnaire. It asked me questions like how much was I willing to have my account go down. At first I put zero, but he said I couldn’t say that, so I put something else, I don’t remember. Why do you guys use those questionnaires? They seem silly to me.

Answer: The “right” answer is to say that we use risk tolerance questionnaires to protect you (the investor) from putting your money in anything that has more risk than you may be willing to tolerate.
