Voices: Mark Byelich, On Principal Protection "We've seen a lot of people suffering losses over the last few years. But there are some different ways to protect clients' principal investments in a down market. Some of those options include structured CDs and principal protected notes. I tend to lean toward the CD options, because they're backed by FDIC protection. Plus, the CDs tend to be cleaner, with fewer fees involved." http://blogs.wsj.com/financial-adviser/2010/10/22/

CNBC The Call
CNBC anchors Larry Kudlow, Melissa Francis, and Trish Regan engage M.J. Byelich & Associates president Mark Byelich in a live roundtable discussion. Byelich reacts to a government proposal which would allow individuals to make penalty-free 401(k) withdrawals if putting the funds toward purchasing a home. Byelich emphatically opposes the idea, saying that rather than encourage detracting from retirement savings, individuals should be given incentives for contributing to their 401(k)s. He says one's home is "only an asset to your heirs or the government, so let's incentivize an individual saver to make contributions to their 401(k), to maximize their 401(k) contributions." www.cnbc.com
