Dear Friends,


Halloween is around the corner, the autumn weather and trees both continue to be beautiful, and the world around us ceases to slow down. As usual, there have been many newsworthy events over the past two weeks: Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone; the Orionid metor shower; the beginning of the 2017 MLB World Series; the Walking Dead season premier; Fats Domino RIP; the (pending) release of additional JFK assassination files; the iPhone X debut; and the Catalonian constitutional crisis in Spain.


In this 10.27.2017 edition of Trending Today, please note the following:

  • We invite you to RSVP for Towerpoint Wealth's next Lunch and Learn complementary educational lunch workshop, on Wednesday, 11/8, focusing on reducing investment expenses.

  --> Featured guest speaker: A.J. Rea from Blackrock

  --> RSVP:

  • Timely content for weekend reading (see tiles below):
  1. TAX REFORM is front-and-center in Washington D.C., and below you will find a well-written and concise Reuters article (5 minutes) discussing what has, is, and will possibly be occurring, and secondly, an interesting commentary from Oppenheimer (4 minutes) on what tax reform may mean for the stock market.
  2. CYBERSECURITY unfortunately continues to be a topical issue, and below you will find an original Towerpoint Wealth piece discussing what exactly to do if you are a victim (3 minutes), and secondly, a number of lesser-known security tips if you own an iPhone and have or will be upgrading to iOS 11 (4 minutes).

We are a broken record - the world continues to become a more complicated, twisted, and confusing place, and we encourage you to call (916-405-9140), email ( or Tweet (@twrpointwealth) us with questions. We are here for you, and look forward to connecting with, helping, and being a direct, independent, and no-strings-attached expert financial resource for each of you.
