What We Do

  • Investment Philosophy

    At The Main Street Group, we believe that schools and credentials are not substitutes for real-world experience. We’ve seen the disastrous results of bad decisions and
    “get rich quick” opportunities, and believe that shortcuts, speculation and short-term investment philosophies just
    do not work.
    With our real-world experience in mind, we’ve developed a simple list
    of our iron-clad rules. We believe in:
    > Hard work and solid research
    > Investing for income first and growth thereafter.
    > Stocks with good dividends. We want our clients to get paid while waiting for growth.
    > Preferred stocks ahead of bonds.
    > Selecting the right investment tools for the right situations.
    > A total approach, incorporating tax strategies, estate planning,
    and preservation of assets for your family.
    > Calling in other knowledgeable professionals when you need
    specialized advice.
    We believe that growth is good, not greed. Our goal is to take the lessons
    we have learned in over 25 years of business and help our clients develop
    their own conservative investment philosophy. To this end, we actively
    encourage our clients to avoid:
    > Companies that can’t explain what they make or sell.
    > Companies with invisible customers.
    > High-risk investments.
    > Chasing rates of return. An investment’s past performance is not
    an indicator of future achievement.
    > The Tooth Fairy! Money does not magically appear.
    > Fads, trends, speculation, and industry buzzwords, especially if
    the only goal is bragging rights.
    The best piece of advice that we’ve ever heard came from our
    company president’s grandfather, who was a farmer. He said: “Always remember: there is no right way to do a wrong thing.”
    Disclosure: Stock investing involves risk, including loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss.
