Should You (or Your Parents) Be in the Stock Market Now?Are you connected with the holdings in your retirement or other accounts? If you inherited accounts, do you follow them for growth and management? I heard this story from a colleague. After her grandmother died, the accounts went directly to her mom without incident due to proper estate planning. Great! No court. No conflict After that, her mom did not look at the accounts for over four years. When they did look, the learned that even though others were experiencing a bull market, the account was losing value to the tune of $70,000! Fast forward to the daughters finally looking at mom’s accounts and they learn that again in a bull market, the account was losing value. Mom had picked her investments with the help of a friend and never looked again. What may have been a good choice when she selected her investments, was no longer a good choice. Now mom is ready to retire and she does not have enough. Why am I sharing this story? Now is the time to understand what you have and how to use it. Get more involved. Log in! Look!
