How Does the Rest of the Year Look for Your Investments?

Mike Switzer

  You might be getting tired of hearing this question but when will the Federal Reserve raise interest rates?  And when they do, what will it mean for stocks and bonds?  And how about oil prices and the situation in Greece?  What does it all mean for investors?  How should your portfolios be positioned as the rest of the year unfolds?

Mike Switzer interviews Doug English, a certified financial planner with ACT Advisors with offices in Greenville and Charleston. 

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
