The high cost of living. Bankruptcy proceedings. People you're supposed to trust not giving you honest answers.

Any one of these subjects provides fodder for a therapy session. In today's Portfolio Therapy, Dagen McDowell tackles all three.

In the first segment, Dagen explains how to know if you're paying too much for a fund. With the market in a tizzy, an eye on expenses often separates the winners from the losers.

In the Q&A session, Dagen weighs in on three queries, including: What should one do with the stock of a company that's filed for bankruptcy?

Lastly, Dagen offers her version of

primal scream therapy: The Rant. In today's Rant, Dagen advises not to be afraid to walk away from a broker or financial adviser who isn't giving you straight answers.

Dagen's Portfolio Therapy, a twice-weekly 20-minute Webcast, gives listeners sound financial advice, answers to tough investing questions and lively rants against the excesses and abuses on Wall Street.
