Mark reviews the 2012 second quarter index returns of both stocks and bonds and presents a timeline of global events that occurred from April 1 – June 30. IFA Investment Advisor Representatives Denise Delaney and Dave Mertz join Mark to discuss concerns and questions about these recent world events and their impact on investment portfolios. Answer: It's not always a bad thing when returns of asset classes go down. Because returns are tied to risk, higher risk indexes and index portfolios have yielded higher returns over time. Sticking to a plan and looking at long-term returns data renders a more comprehensive snapshot of the market versus looking at one quarter alone.
