Market Matters for November 16, 2012
Below is a weekly update from our Chief Investment Officer, Dr. Scott Lummer. He co-hosts a seven minute audio segment entitled “Market Matters.” In this week's episode Scott talks about the need for liquidity in a portfolio, and the difference between pure liquidity and safety. He points out the danger of having to much of a portfolio invested in money market securities. He explains why for an investor with a time horizon in excess of a year, bonds are almost always a better performing investment than money markets. Each week he covers a different piece of investment news focusing on recent events in the capital markets, and relates them to Savant Investment Group’s perspective on investing.
