Investment Tips in the Wall Street Journal
as stocks continue to climb investors are putting more of their money in cash this chart looks at how much cash investors have and money market accounts in the past three years the total has climbed by one trillion dollars to three point four trillion the highest level in about a decade cash is sometimes viewed as a safe but boring investment but lately it’s looking a lot shinier than it has in a while I’m not just two investors analysts say if you park your cash in the right account it can earn higher returns without taking on more risk just kind of the holy grail of investing we’ll explain when investors talk about cash they mean funds that you can quickly and easily spend or turn into physical money it’s all about liquidity cash accounts let you withdraw funds in a flash if you need to say fix your roof or pay a medical expense there are a few types of cash including currencies deposit accounts and money market funds each is a little different the cashius type of cash is currency the stuff from trees according to the Fed about 1.8 trillion in US currency circulates through the economy through banks businesses wallets sock drawers as an investment though there are downsides there’s no return on cash that’s stored in a sock drawer for example an inflation even really low inflation will eat away at the value it’s also kind of risky if you have a lot of currency you’re probably going to want to buy a safe now there’s a lot more money in deposit accounts let’s look at savings accounts alone cash and savings accounts at commercial banks tops eight trillion dollars according to the Federal Reserve savings picked up around 2009 right after the market crashed and battered investment portfolios and over the past decade savings has outpaced GDP growth even as interest rates dropped one analyst said that low interest rates actually helped drive up savings accounts the idea is that people had less incentive to move their money from savings to other and Smith’s the returns on some government bonds for example were not much higher than the savings against right now the average return on savings accounts under $100,000 is about point zero nine percent but if you look around you can do better savings accounts at some online banks will yield you more some around 2% now that return is more aligned with money market funds which is our next cash investment like we said at the beginning there’s a lot more money and money market funds lately these accounts are not insured by the FDIC like savings accounts are but they hold high rated short-term securities that tend to hold steady in value also unlike many savings accounts money market funds often require minimum deposits they also charge management fees and limit the number of transactions you can make each month but over the past few years returns have grown here they are since 2009 after years near zero in 2015 rates on money market funds started rising along with the feds interest rate increases they then dropped a little when the central bank reduced rates a little earlier this year but returns are still higher than you’ll get at your average savings account some analysts say that the surge and money market account balances shows that investors are feeling cautious they may have concerns about the broader economy the trade war with China and just mixed economic data have sparked bouts of volatility in the markets and that’s pushed investors for it’s safer assets but others say all the cash on the sidelines indicates good health it shows investors are not overly excited about stocks and that they’ll have money to invest when prices drop one thing that is clear is that a stocks and bonds keep rising investors are looking at cash again seriously for the first time since the financial crisis you might even say cash is back.
Avoid Some Mistake Before or After Investing in Wall Street
When it comes to investing in the stock market there are a lot of scary things out there but sometimes people make the mistake of being scared of the wrong things I’m Jack otter editor of Barron’s com I’m here at Liz Ann Sonders chief investment.
Strategist at Slav we often hear that the millennial generation in particular given the two experiences they’ve had the tech bubble and then 2008-2009 is gun shy of investing should they be scared of the stock market well I think it’s understandable you met you mentioned and they those those two extreme occurrences happened within a 10 year span of time and I think you can look back to the era of the Great Depression and how it really did change the psyche of a generation of investors and you could argue maybe we’re seeing that as well the risk of course though is that many of these investors have gone so conservative in their approach to investing that they’re setting themselves up to almost guarantee an under performance relative to inflation which means they’re basically swimming against the tide and and the risk then is that you you’re not you’re not earning a sufficient return people make the mistake I think of thinking that the risk is simply losing money in the market but unfortunately they’re actually other risks and losing purchasing power over the long term is a big problem no question about it now I think sometimes we over generalize about Millennials in every aspect of their lives how they approach their in investing how they approach how they live and where they work and how they commute and so I do think that especially if we continue to see decent gains in the stock market I think you’ll you’ll you’ll capture the the hearts and minds of those investors as well it’s not just a game for that’s all as long as they don’t wait make the behavioral mistake of being conservative conservative as the market goes up and up and then going all-in at the time panic in right yeah right panic is not an investing strategy in either direction in or out you mentioned Robo advisors that we know financial advisors who object and say these are not good things my feeling is that you could do a lot worse well what do you think so I think for some investors certainly is a place to start think it’s a it’s a great vehicle because it’s it’s low-cost the rebalancing which is such an important part of the investing process it gets done automatically and I think oftentimes when investors are left to their own devices they they will often do the opposite of what rebalancing does for you so rebalancing is if you’ve got a an asset allocation plan and your diversified across asset classes and that plan is set up for you as an investor based on your risk tolerance and time horizon well as asset classes move in terms of performance they’re gonna move in terms of the weights in your portfolio so what rebalancing does is it pairs back from the asset classes that have now grown in size because of outperformance and add to the asset classes that have underperformed and now represent a smaller weight in your portfolio what it forces investors to do that when we’re left to our own devices we often don’t do is what we know we’re supposed to buy low sell high but it’s so hard it’s hard what you’re selling that stuff that’s been doing well done automatically you as the investor are not the one that has to make that decision of when it’s an appropriate time can rebalance so it forces that discipline on investors that I think can be particularly helpful especially in extremes and emotions thanks.
