Though you lost once – you and your family need not lose again. You choose.
Eleven years ago, the stock market started to crash, leaving many Americans unsure of their financial future. Correction (crash) is overdue.
Big Losses Hard to Recoup
The math of percentages shows that as losses get larger, the return necessary to recover to break-even increases at a much faster rate. A loss of 10 percent necessitates an 11 percent gain to recover. Increase that loss to 25 percent and it takes a 33 percent gain to get back to break-even. A 50 percent loss requires a 100 percent gain to recover and an 80 percent loss necessitates 500 percent in gains to get back to where the investment value started.
Further, you may be able to make up for lost money, but you can’t make up for the lost time. Consider: How much better off will you be if you keep all your gains, no loss, then go forward from your best high point? No money lost. No time lost. You win. Well played.
Who do you know NOW who sounds like this?
- “I want to protect gains earned in this run-up.”
- “I’m nervous about a correction.”
- “I wish I’d had more protection during the market downturn of 2008.”
It’s time to talk. Don’t wait. Be prudent. Remove your gains from the table, eliminate your risk.
Call now, before (your) history repeats itself. (Proverbs 27:12)
