4th Quarter 2014: Cowboys on Wall Street
By Benton S. Bragg CFP®, CFA®
My son Charlie (7) was given a gift
certificate to Toys & Co. for Christmas by his grandparents. As you might imagine, after receiving the gift, not a day passed without Charlie reminding Alice and me that he was ready to go shopping.

us to stop by Toys & Co. at Cotswold
Shopping Center to help Charlie pick

by Benton S. Bragg, CFP®, CFA®
Many investors spend more time worrying about what securities to own and relatively little time considering where to own those securities. Specifically, they haven't considered whether the security should be held in their IRA (or other pre-tax account) or if it should be held in their taxable account (after-tax account). This can be an expensive mistake given today's tax environment. Read more
Planned Giving Problems and Solutions: Make Sure Your Wishes Come True
by Phillips M. Bragg, CFP®, ARP®
It is inconsistent that so many generous folks, who relished giving during their lifetime, leave nothing at their death to their favorite charities. Perhaps it can be assumed that they meant to make provisions but were not sure how. The following are examples of problems that cause procrastination, and solutions to those problems. Read more

The Sound of Everything Unveiled
The Sound of Everything
Commissioned by company founder Frank Bragg, the work is the largest of a series of Cassidy's new sculptures that attempt to create physical equivalents of musical sound and its emotional and associative resonances. The eighteen foot tall sculpture is constructed from steel and has a powder coated surface. The soft silver blue color was specifically chosen to make reference to the changing characteristics of the sky. On a gray day the sculpture looks blue and on a blue sky day it appears to be more silver. Read more.
