Andrew Sather, host of the Money Tree Investing podcast AND owner of the value investing site eInvestingForBeginners.com, helps us stay out of “the value trap” this week.

What’s a value trap? Ever watched a company stock decline and thought, “That’s a great buy!” only to see it keep going down (and sometimes go bankrupt)? How do you separate the true “great values” from just rotten companies going down the toilet? We’ll discuss today.

Lydia Frank from PayScale.com joins us to talk about their new college ROI survey. College is an expensive investment. You might have to go into debt to graduate. Doesn't it make sense to find out first whether that degree is worth it?

If you aren't worried at all about college, don't worry....we've got stuff for you, too. PK is here discussing politics and investing. What's the lesson we can learn from Chicago elections? You'll find out. Joe & OG not only talk about old 401k plans and what to do with them....they also discuss more people suing their 401k provider AND take a letter from a listener whose advisor recommended moving money out of the market. Good or bad idea? We'll weigh in.

On today's show, we're talking about tax cheaters and tax forgetters (is "tax forgetters" a phrase? It is now....). It turns our Robert De Niro didn't realize he owed a TON of money in back taxes. We'll discuss that AND our roundtable team of Len and Greg will talk about tax cheaters in Texas. 

It isn't all tax discussions, though. Joe & OG cover some BIG mistakes annuity buyers make, the roundtable discusses stock trading, and we answer a listener letter about buying real estate....in China.

It's good to be back! Thanks to MagnifyMoney.com for sponsoring our podcast.

Thinking about loaning money to your deadbeat uncle Lou to make a few extra bucks? Maybe peer-to-peer lending is a better idea. Simon Cunningham from LendingMemo.com joins in the fun this week to tell us how it works. If you're a borrower, he'll share the upsides of peer to peer loans (and the brutal truth about your credit score, the interest rate, and the amount you can borrow). If you're an investor, he'll share how to pick investments that match your risk tolerance, diversify your loan portfolio, and automate your system so you aren't constantly reinvesting your completed deals.

Mortgage applications have dropped through the floor. Is the mortgage refinance party over? Our roundtable, including Linda P Jones from Be Wealthy and Smart podcast and Thomas Frank from Listen Money Matters weigh in on that, as well as index investing strategies, buying individual stocks, when to buy your first house, and much more!

Joe & OG tackle headlines about pension cuts. When is it time to decide that you should cash out of your pension? They'll share the answer, but it's probably....the sooner the better. Another heading asks, "how much do you need to retire?" They'll also give their feelings on that topic. Later, they take questions about mutual fund choices AND using gold as a cash reserve. Good idea? They'll let you know.
