KEOGH PLAN

Definition
A Keogh plan (also called HR10 plans) is a tax-deferred retirement plan for self-employed individuals or unincorporated businesses.

Why It's Important
It's important to note that contributions to these plans are tax-deductible up to a certain amount.  There are two types of Keogh plans.  One type is a qualified defined-contribution plan.  This type of plan is typically in the form of a profit-sharing plan.  The beauty is that a business doesn't have to generate profits to participate in this type of plan.  As of 2019, a business can put 100% of their income or up to $56,000 of funds into this plan.  Profit-sharing plans are only contributed to by the employer (yourself if you are self employed) not the employee.  It's a good way to squirrel away money when your company is doing well.

The other type of Keogh plan is a qualified defined-benefit plan.  These types of plans are similar to pensions in that you get paid out annually after...

GEOMETRIC MEAN

Definition
The geometric mean is the average of a set of numbers.

Why It's Important
This is not to be confused with arithmetic mean.  The arithmetic mean is what you learned in school when your teacher taught you about "mean".  As a refresher, let's look at the following set of numbers: 3%,7%,10%,6%,4%.  You find the mean by adding all the numbers together (3+7+10+6+4=30%) then dividing by the total number of records (5).  The arithmetic mean in this scenario would be 6%.  In contrast, a geometric mean would be calculated as (1.03x1.07x1.10x1.06x1.04)^(1/5)=~5.5015%.  

Now that you have the concept, let's apply it to personal finance and investing.  The geometric mean is typically used to calculate the average return on investments.  You would look at the past annual rates and calculate the mean to find out what your overall return was over the time period.  

For example, let's say one year you enjoyed 10%, the next 15%, and the next 8%....

HEAD AND SHOULDERS

Definition
The head and shoulders pattern in technical stock analysis is used to predict what the support level (lowest price it will potentially go before traders make it rise again) of a stock is.

Why It's Important
You probably saw this and wondered why I would be talking about a shampoo.  LOL!  This is one of many charting patterns that technical analysts use to make stock price predictions.  I will warn that this is an advanced investing topic so if it does not make sense, do not worry!  

As you can see from the chart below, the trend looks like a head and two shoulders.  The "neckline" is a support level.  The stock price hit that level then bounced up.  Then, it hit it one more time and bounced up before breaking through the support and trending downwards.  

This same charting pattern can also happen in the opposite way as shown below.  In this scenario, the neckline shows the price ceiling instead of the support.  It is the same...
