Sacramento, CA (PressExposure) January 09, 2012 -- Market Outlook: S&P 500, Euro and Gold
Keith Springer appears live on CNBC to weigh in on what factors are impacting the markets live with Brian Sullivan.
According to Brian Sullivan, an anchor for CNBC Market Alert, 'Unless we collapse today or tomorrow, it [the Dow] will finish higher for the year. The question is, do we care about that statistic?"
"Basically, we don't care about the last couple days," comments Keith Springer, president of Springer Financial Advisors in Sacramento, CA. "Typically this is normal; tax selling the beginning of the week, followed by people buying bargains being created by this selling. This statistic doesn't matter so much.
"I think we're going to be up," continues Mr. Springer. "What investors really need to do is find a way to get the best return without all the risk. That's what we'd like to do for our clients. That's really the key out there is to really get people to find the best return. Find that sweet spot in the market. Get the best return without all the risk. Otherwise you're just rolling the dice. You don't want to roll the dice with your nest egg."
"I like utilities but they are trading high," more specifically Mr. Springer says he likes, "the higher dividend-paying type of stocks, I think the typical stocks that just pay a market average dividend still have too much risk. The key is to reduce the risk. If you can go out there, we're finding 8, 9, 10% yields on some Preferred, MLPs, and corporate bonds, that's 80% return typically of the stock market with only 10% or 20% of the risks. That's where you want to look. Many of those stocks with small dividends of 2%, 3%, 4%, they might be nice compared to the market, but I still think there's too much risk if the market folds."
