By LIZ WESTONNo outcome is ever truly assured, as everyone in America now knows. We can't predict what our new president will do, or Congress, or the economy or the markets. All that uncertainty, though, means it's a good time to review your investments to see if they still match your goals. If so, you probably shouldn't change the way you invest. Ultimately, nothing will improve your financial security as much as nailing the basics so you prosper in any upturn and insulate yourself against the unforeseen. That means saving for retirement any way you can, paying off toxic debt, building up your emergency funds and investing in a diversified portfolio with an eye to long-term results, not short-term market swings. Financial planner Neal Frankle is urging his clients above all to stay calm and not let euphoria or depression about Donald Trump's election drive their next moves. "I cautioned my clients to put their own feelings about Trump, positive or negative, aside, because those feelings can slip them into making emotional decisions about their money," says Frankle, founder of Wealth Resources Group in Westlake Village, California. "It is usually unprofitable to try to predict the outcome when there are so many unknowns." GIVE YOURSELF ROOM TO MANEUVER People who insist on moving their long-term investments to cash right now should have a plan to get back into the stock market in the next six months, says planner Michael Kitces, director of wealth management for Pinnacle Advisory Group in Columbia, Maryland. "If you don't, it will be very hard to get back in, especially if it turns out that markets actually do go up from here as the market prices in the upside of Trump's infrastructure spending policies," Kitces says. If Trump can deliver even partially on his goal to double economic growth, "it would actually be a huge positive for markets and retirement portfolios," Kitces says.
