Stock Market Pandemic History

Technology stocks have largely been in favor since the COVID-19 pandemic began, but re-openings in the U.S. and elsewhere as vaccines take hold have pushed investors toward value stocks, which are geared more toward the economy. But lately, stronger growth expectations are also sparking worries of higher inflation, and a potential tapping of the brakes by central banks.

Therefore, an important concept for physicians and all investors to understand is the Current Rate of Return (CCR).

So, What Exactly is CRR?

According to this principle, the current rate of a taxable return must be evaluated in reference to a similar non-taxable rate of return. This allows you to focus on your portfolio’s real (after-tax return), rather than its’ nominal, or stated return. Since most medical professionals own a combination of both vehicles, it is important to calculate the average rate of return (ARR), as demonstrated in the following matrix. Usually, this will result in the assumption of more risk, for the possibility of great return.

To compare after tax yields, with taxable yields, use the following formulas:

Tax equivalent yield = yield / (1 – MTB), while taxable yield X (1-tax rate) = tax exempt yield.

Example: if the yield on a tax exempt municipal bond was 6%, and you are in a 28% tax bracket; the equivalent taxable yield (ETY), is 8.3%, calculated in the following manner: 06 / 1.00 – .28 =.083, or, 8.3% ETY.

This means that you would need a taxable instrument paying almost 9 % to equal the 6 percent tax exempt bond.
