***Hope you had an enjoyable Easter or, if you don't celebrate Easter, a lovely weekend. This article may seem a bit of a downer, but I believe it pays to be prepared for lower returns. My hope is that we will soon leave this weak economy behind and return to robust returns. But it is important to plan for a less than ideal scenario. That way you are more prepared for a difficult investing environment. And, if things turn good, then you can be pleasantly surprised by the excellent returns you are receiving.***
