Don grant CFP the bunny tracker with a us this morning going on. Remember back in 2009 at the low point of the recession when you had your portfolio readjusted to 60% stocks and 40% bonds. Well you may have been more weighted in stocks into the recession hit. So you sold some of them off and waded into the bond market looking for safety if you'd done that and haven't readjusted your asset allocation. You would probably now have an 81%. Stock in 17%. Bond portfolio. Now I reach that number by checking the growth of the S&P 500 which is the stock market essentially first is the growth of the Barclays bond index. Well if your set it and forget it type of investor you're probably way overdue for a rebalancing. Asset allocations are not to be taken lightly viewing your certified financial planner develop a strategy to handle your appetite for risk and your need for growth. A number of factors including your future in company's current income total assets and contribution levels. Help us determine in which asset classes you should invest. So would one asset class grows more than another you'll need to rebalance if you wanna stay on track with your allocation. Let's take a very simple example with 100000 dollars you determine that say 50% of your money needs to be in the stock market for growth. And the other 50% is in California real estate investments. Let's say that the real estate boom pitcher investment and grossed 25%. But the stock market grows just 5%. At the end of the year your stocks are 52000. In the real estate is at 62500. You no longer have a 5050 allocation. Rebalancing. Would mean that you sell enough of the real estate and buy some more equities to rebalance the portfolio back to 5050. Rebalancing is no guarantee of better returns but it does keep you on track if in the following year the real estate market were to crash 40%. And you had not re balanced. You would have had been in a position to lose much more. Did if you had rebounds. And of course if you have any questions you give me a call the number 63422. 22 and I thank you Don today is national ugly Christmas sweater day I don't have one.
