T-Mobile’s Stock Up Plan

By |June 27th, 2016|

T-Mobile has come up with a new plan to get you to switch your service.  They want to give you the company.

Well, I suppose that might be a little strong, but it’s the idea behind their new “Stock Up” plan.  Personally I use Google’s Project Fi service, but this idea is strange enough that I couldn’t let it pass

Global Sale on Stocks – Brexit Edition

By |June 24th, 2016|

Looks like the UK has voted to leave the European Union.  Financial markets are reacting horribly to the news, with Europe down 8%, UK down 9%.  So what’s a Brexit? Why are financial markets reacting so bad? Is it time to panic?  Why don’t we knock these questions down one at a time, then my favorite security for riding out

By |June 17th, 2016|

Well, it seems to be time for another update regarding the presidential election.  Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve probably found out that the two main parties have managed to choose their candidates for president.  Hillary Clinton is running for the Democrats, and Donald Trump is the Republican nominee.  The GOP seems to be of two minds about its

Hi Adam,

I recently purchased a house and the mortgage company sold my information to a life insurance company.  They gave us a call and now we’re a little overwhelmed trying to figure out how to “diversify our finances”.  Should I get an accountant?  Would he help me with this?  We’re a little worried about the additional expense.

2/3rds of US can’t come up with $1,000

By |May 27th, 2016|

Cost Saving

By |May 20th, 2016|

In personal finance we sometimes have an obsessive focus on cost savings.  I think the focus comes from the fact that it’s often a blind-spot for folks when they get into budget trouble.  People would always like to make more money.  More money is a panacea for problems.  People tend to equate cutting costs with cutting happiness.  When given

I’m hoping that this list might save some people some time.  After spending a certain amount of time with tax-advantage vehicles there is an inclination to try to get “creative.”  Unfortunately, creativity in this space is mostly disallowed, and more often than not it’s a bad idea.
