Evaluating A Money Manager


Scams and frauds are designed to take your money through false promises and phonyclaims. Money management is supposedly designed to increase your net worth. Sometimes these two worldsmeet and the results are not in your favor, i.e., youhave a considerable decrease in net worth.

Value Investing


By definition, value investing is the process of selecting stocks that trade for less than their intrinsic value. A value investor typically selects stocks with lower than average price-to-book or price-to-earning ratios. Of course, it is not nearly this simple. Value investing is the corner stone of long-term growth. Those who practice it survive the ups and downs of the market and are more likely to emerge wealthy than those who ride the market, in principle, due to the higher quality of the companies falling under the prerequisites of the value investor. Value investing is essentially concerned with getting the most profit at the lowest cost. The basis of value is profit. Value investing is an investment style which favors good stocks at great prices over great stocks at good prices. Value investor extraordinaire Warren Buffett has used this style to become a billionaire.

The stock market and other financial markets are definitely very important to us investors/traders but this ?super secular trend? of the aging of the worldwide population will impact every aspect of our lives, whether it is losing our relative competitiveness on the world arena, increasing pension and healthcare costs, or even a potential fundamental change of our political system.

Thus, the employee has the right to take his SEP IRA account money with him whenever he stops working for the company.
