ccording to Yale University's Crash Confidence Index, only about 27% of investors are confident the stock market will not crash sometime during the next six months. But if fear leads investors to avoid the entire investment class, they may limit their potential returns. For example, during the 20-year period ended December 31, 2017, stocks had an average annual return of 8.5%. By comparison, bonds returned 6.1% and cash 2.0% during the same time frame. During that 20-year stretch, stocks outperformed bonds and cash in 14 years out of 20. But the stock market is volatile. Between October 9, 2007, and March 9, 2009, the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index shed well over half its value. But then the S&P 500 started clawing its way back and ended 2010 within 20% of the October 9, 2007, close. If the impulse to be safe keeps investors out of the stock market, it may also keep them from taking advantage of the potential returns the stock market has to offer. Fast Fact: Fund Owner. Nearly half of U.S. households — 44% — own shares of mutual funds. That’s an estimated 54.9 million households. SOURCE: INVESTMENT COMPANY INSTITUTE, 2017

Cash alternatives — the most conservative of the three investment classes — outperformed stocks and bonds only once during the 20year period. A sound investing strategy considers short-term volatility without losing sight of long-term objectives. A sound strategy can involve diversifying capital between different classes of investments. That way, under-performance in one type of asset may be offset by the performance of another. Bear in mind, though, that diversification and asset allocation are approaches to help manage investment risk. They do not eliminate the risk of loss if a security price declines. The asset class that performs best one year may not do so the next. Diversifying your holdings among several different investment types and understanding that asset classes can move in and out of favor may help you manage the risk in your investment portfolio.

October, 2018

What to Plant

Annuals/Bedding plants: Even though temperatures are still warm, begin planting for the cooler months ahead. Dianthus, petunia, and pansy are good annuals for the fall garden. Bulbs: : Plant agapanthus, rain lily, and many varieties of lilies now for blooms next spring or summer. Add organic matter to the planting bed for best results. Herbs: A wide range of herbs can be planted from seeds or plants this month. Some examples include parsley, cilantro, chives, garlic, and sage. Vegetables: :Plant crops now that will grow and produce throughout the winter months. This includes broccoli, collards, kale, lettuce, and others.

What to Do

Lawn weeds: Control winter weeds in lawns before they appear. Preemergence herbicides must be applied at the right time to be effective. Apply when nighttime temperatures are 55°F–60°F for 4–5 days. Avoid "weed and feed" products. Ornamental trees and shrubs: Fertilize plants that are not performing as desired. Controlledrelease fertilizer provides nutrients over a longer period of time. Lawn fertilization: Early October is the last time to fertilize the lawn. Choose a fertilizer (not a "weed and feed") with little or no phosphorus unless a soil test indicates the need for it. A fertilizer with controlled-release nitrogen will give longer-lasting results. Strawberries: Prepare beds and set strawberry plants this month. Strawberries also make a colorful and tasty container planting. Either way, water daily until plants are established. Winter landscapes: Plant evergreen hollies; their bright berries add color to the landscape when other plants have died back for the winter. Water well when planting and mulch to minimize weeds.

For Pet’s Sake Pet Sitting Rebecca M. Miller PROFESSIONAL PET SITTER

realized her own need for a pet sitter. The benefits to having a pet sitter are numerous. Pets are happiest when they are in their own home, and boarding can be stressful and scary, especially for older dogs. We all know that our pets sleep most of the day but boarding facilities are loud and likely causes our pets to be awake and fearful. For their wellbeing, it is best for pets to be at home. Boarding exposes pets

to other animals and illnesses therefore your pet is required to have the Bordetella and Influenza immunizations. Boarding requires you to drop off and pick up your pet(s) at specific times and include fees. Having a pet sitter means your pet will be waiting for you when you arrive home. When you have a pet sitter your pets can stay home and not be alone. In the twelve nine years of business, For pet Sake’s has created ties with other pet professionals

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT in Wesley Chapel. They network with mobile groomers, veterinarians, pet stores and local rescue organizations. Rebecca aims to help all pet owners find the services they need.
