Millennials are currently between the ages of 26 and 37. 66 percent of them have no retirement savings at all. If they don’t get started soon saving for retirement there is going to be a crisis awaiting in 30 to 40 years. When people are young, retirement looks like something far, far into the future.

Matt Badiali says that at a minimum everyone who has access to a 401(k) should be at least putting away whatever their company match is. It’s basically free money a company gives employees to incentive them to save. This money really adds up over time. People should be looking to put away 10 to 15 percent of their income so that when they retire they will have the resources to be able to live they can lifestyle they are accustomed to.

Ted Bauman Warns investors about Amazons Volatility

Ted Bauman is the editor of The Bauman Letter, Plan B Club, Alpha Stock Alert. Prior to Joining Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013, Bauman spent 25 years in South Africa where he served in many executive positions for nonprofit organizations. During his time in South Africa, he also founded Slum Dwellers International, a non-profit organization which provides low-income housing solutions while aiding in infrastructure delivery with a primary emphasis on water and sanitation. Lately, Bauman has been warning investors about Trump’s trade war as well as the overall profitability of Amazon in relation to the actual facts.

Trump’s trade war has signaled some major changes to US investor’s holdings in multinationals. Ted Bauman believes that if the trade war continues, it may lead to the bull market being stonewalled with the looming threat of war. “Bull Markets” Bauman claims “end not as much from age as from changes in monetary or fiscal policy.” Due to Trump’s rhetoric, countries like China and Canada are gearing up for retaliatory measures. Canada, for example, has started refusing products that were manufactured in the United States. The tariffs are also affecting American exports, especially in steel and soybeans. Bauman believes that in light of these facts, it is important that investors position themselves accordingly.

Furthermore, Ted Bauman is warning investors about Amazon’s investment structure as the company doesn’t pay dividends but uses the extra revenue to purchase other businesses. The reasoning behind this investment strategy is the company’s desire to introduce new products and services. Bauman claims that these business practices may pose a substantial risk as traders can only profit from this type of investment by selling it. This situation presents the added risk of stockholders dumping Amazon shares at the first sign of trouble. Bauman believes investors should be cautious with Amazon stocks as their value may continue to drop in the coming months. To know more about him click here.
