Typically you can receive higher crediting rates on a CD if you commit to leaving your money with the bank for a longer period of time. This lack of liquity causes many people to choose shorter-term CDs at the expense of receiving the higher interest rates. CD laddering is a strategy that gives you the benefit of receiving the higher-interest crediting rates of longer term CDs but still provide you with some liquidity.

Bond values are very sensitive to market interest rates. For example, if you purchased bond with a stated/coupon rate of 10% and market rates had declined to 8% since you purchased the bond, then the value of your 10% bond in a market crediting 8% would be higher.
Purchase price, loan terms, appreciation rate, taxes, expenses and other factors must be considered when you evaluate a real estate investment.
Compound interest can have a dramatic effect on the growth of an investment.
A Call option represents the right (but not the requirement) to purchase a set number of shares of stock at a pre-determined 'strike price' before the option reaches its expiration date. A call option is purchased in hopes that the underlying stock price will rise well above the strike price, at which point you may choose to exercise the option. Exercising a call option is the financial equivalent of simultaneously purchasing the shares at the strike price and immediately selling them at the now higher market price.
Tax-deferral can have a dramatic effect on the growth of an investment.
On your way home from work, do you drive in the slow lane or the fast lane? Each person has a different propensity for risk. When investing, this risk propensity can be used to determine the percentage of your portfolio that is exposed to equities.

  • "I had never used an accountant and was interviewing so I could choose one if I decided to do so. During the interview I asked advice about two new financial matters as they relate to me in retirement. The meeting was excellent. Mr. Ross was professional, knoweldgeable and non-threatening all at the same time. "

    -Joseph C.

  • "Glen was terrific. After having a poor experience elsewhere, Ross & Company were like a breath of fresh air."

    -Len E.

  • "I provided all of the appropriate paperwork (electronically), and Glen Ross went through them, set me up in his system and asked a few questions. I also had some additional questions regarding 2013 taxes which he also promptly answered, while also giving the basis for the answers."

    -Piers B.

  • "First, the experience was excellent. I called and made an appointment to see a CPA. The receptionist was warm and professional. Ease of getting an appointment, especially during the current tax season, was excellent. When I arrived at the office, I was met by the receptionist who was again, very nice and professional. "

    -Brett M.

  • "I met with Glen in the Fall to have him look over my last return prepared elsewhere to see if he saw any mistakes that I might be alerted to by the IRS again in the future. He listened to my concerns (which were many) and he re-assured me that I really had nothing to worry about, (believe me, that is NO SMALL TASK!). "

    -Tracey H.

  • "We were in the market for a new accountant because our previous accountant of 20 years retired. We were concerned it would not be easy to find an accountant that we would feel comfortable with. But after searching, we came upon Ross & Company who had great reviews. . "

    -Lisa Z.

  • "Fortunately and unfortunately my taxes have gotten to the point where I simply cannot handle them on my own (using TurboTax) anymore. This became evident when I received a communication from the IRS that there was a potential issue with a past tax return. "

    -Matthew D.

  • "Finally! A cure for Tax-time stress! Glen Ross met with us for about 1 hour and prepared our 2011 taxes while giving us important information about Federal Tax Law. Meeting Glen for the first time was great and sat down with him for an hour or so while he did our taxes."

    -R.T.
