Atlantic Southeast - Asset Allocation

The stock market has experienced a 5% pull back over the last few weeks and we have seen daily trading volatility similar to that of 2008. This has been caused by Europe's own financial crisis. In 2008, American taxpayers bailed out their large banks. The European Union is currently bailing out Greece and possibly three more countries.

What does that have to do with you, a US investor? Over 50 percent of the the revenues of the S&P 500, the 500 largest companies in the US, come from overseas. Declining foreign sales and a declining euro hurt our mega corporations. You might be wondering what you should do with your 401k. If you are properly allocated according to your age and risk tolerance, the answer is nothing right now except possibly increasing your contribution to take advantage of the sale. You should also make sure that your portfolio is properly diversified. Is your 401k in all cash? Do you have more than 30% in any one fund?

The biggest risk to your retirement is not saving. The second biggest risk is how you invest. Print off a copy of this connection email as a reminder to look at your 401k allocation. You can also visit for tips on allocating your portfolio. Of course, you may also call me anytime to discuss your individual situation.
