Money Talks – April 23, 2016

This week on “Money Talks,” Managing Associate, K.C. Smith, CFP®, joins Matt Hames, CTFA and Troy Harmon, CFA, CVA to discuss the week’s market news including Industrial Production and the Consumer Sentiment Survey from last Friday. They also discuss Housing Starts, Mortgage Applications and Existing Home Sales that were this week’s headlines. Our experts also explore a case study about a couple who want to test drive their retirement plan as their current lifestyle will not be covered by Social Security alone—they will begin drawing on their retirement accounts almost immediately. The hosts also answer listeners’ questions on whether low oil prices bolstered consumer spending, interest on consumer debt vs. investment gains, water companies York Water and Middlesex Water Company and global industrial company General Electric Co.
