Personal Capital is an advertiser with Stock Gumshoe, but Travis also uses it every day. He says: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and help you do better." Their free tools are great -- try it out here today.
