Hernandez tells Kiwanis about investment outlook
Investors should remain optimistic while expecting more market volatility, Edward Jones financial adviser Chris Hernandez said at Marion Kiwanis Club on Tuesday.
Hernandez said now, when markets are up, is the time for investors to rebalance their mix of stocks and bonds. He gave examples of John Deere and Koch Industries diversifications that aided their business.
Proposed government policy changes dominate the 2017 outlook, but people should not base investment decisions on politics, he said.
“We are in a high-charged political environment, and it’s sad when I see people make their financial decisions based on that,” Hernandez said. “Make your votes based on that, don’t put your portfolio on it.”
