Your Investment Portfolio for the Next Decade—Fix It with the “Anti-Stock” / Portfolio / Investing 2020

By: Jared_Dillian

For months—years—I’ve been extolling the virtues of portfolios that are primarily comprised of bonds. Especially in retirement.

Bonds provide necessary diversification. They may end up reducing returns, but you are more than compensated by the reduction in risk.

A few months ago, people were giving me a lot of grief about this. I heard all about how irresponsible it was to promote bonds in a low interest rate environment. Then interest rates went even lower, as stocks went down a lot.

The 60/40 Stocks Portfolio Is Riskier Than Ever / Portfolio / Investing 2019

By: John_Mauldin

As investors we have to make assumptions about the future. We know they will likely prove wrong, but something has to guide our asset allocation decisions.

Many long-term investors assume stocks will give them 6–8% real annual returns if they simply buy and hold long enough.

Pension fund trustees hire consultants to reassure them of this “fact,” along with similar interest rate and bond forecasts, and then make investment and benefit decisions.

Is 35/55/3/3/4 the Ultimate Investment Portfolio Today? / Portfolio / Investing 2019

By: Jared_Dillian

Lot of strong feelings on gold.

Some people think it has no utility. Other people have pretty reasoned arguments about how gold maintains purchasing power across the centuries.

It was in a bubble eight years ago that sucked a lot of people in. There were some sketchball commercials for gold on Fox News. The people who missed the bubble spent the next eight years mocking the people who got sucked into it.

(I got sucked into it.)

Every Investor Is One Misstep Away From Losing Everything—And It Has Nothing To Do With Crashes / Portfolio / Financial Markets 2017

By: John_Mauldin

BY OLIVIER GARRET : The US has become a very unfriendly place for successful people.

Not just for the uber wealthy, but entrepreneurs, investors, and the family next door. Anyone with even a modest net worth is a potential target.

Our country has just 5% of the world’s population yet is home to 80% of its lawyers. The US spends 2.2% of its GDP on legal costs. That is an eight-fold jump per capita (inflation adjusted) since the 1950s.

Designing a Dividend Growth Portfolio for a Specific Retirement Yield Objective / Portfolio / Pensions & Retirement

By: Charles_Carnevale

Managing an investment portfolio is a very personal matter.  Consequently, the most important consideration is to design a portfolio that meets your own unique goals, objectives and risk tolerances.  Everyone is different, and consequently, every investment portfolio can and should be appropriately different as well.  Stated more straightforwardly, I do not believe in cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all approaches to portfolio design.

In the same vein, I believe that investment portfolios, especially retirement investment portfolios, should be designed and constructed to meet the specific needs of the individual it is built for.  In some cases the objective might be current income and safety.  In other cases the objective might be the necessity to earn the highest possible rate of return.  Importantly, the most appropriate objective for each individual will often be driven by factors that are external to the portfolio itself.

Target Date Funds As Aid In Retirement Investment Portfolio Design / Portfolio / Pensions & Retirement

By: Richard_Shaw

  • Investors in or near retirement should be aware of portfolio design leading fund sponsors suggest as appropriate
  • Leading target date funds appear to generally have less severe worst drawdowns than a US 60/40 balanced fund
  • The funds have slightly higher yields than a US 60/40 balanced fund
  • Target date funds have underperformed a US 60/40 balanced fund in part due to a cash reserve component and non-US stocks
  • Non-US stocks drag on historical performance could become future boost to performance.

Trip through TSA—When Stock Diversification Gets out of Hand / Portfolio / Learning to Invest

By: Don_Miller

There are only a handful of ways to protect your investment portfolio, and proper diversification is chief among them. No matter how well you do your due diligence on a single investment or how disciplined you are at executing trades, if your portfolio looks like a bridge party among pals who’ve known each other just a tad too long you’re in trouble.

Rock Concerts, and How to Find On-Sale Stocks to Fuel a Rock-Star Retirement / Portfolio / Investing 2014

By: Don_Miller

Have you ever wondered what really happens behind the scenes at a rock concert? My good friend Stew is a top audio engineer—you know, the guy who wears thousand-dollar headphones and stands below the stage manning dials at rock concerts the world over. I shadowed him backstage a handful of times, and the scene was not what I thought it would be. Sure, they all dressed the rocker part, but I was blown away by everyone’s professionalism.

Tim Melvin writes: Thanks to billions of dollars in quantitative easing from the U.S. Federal Reserve, fears over a looming stock market crash have been put on hold lately.

The Standard & Poor's 500 Index is up 16% this year. The market's outstanding performance has shrugged off weak earnings reports, slowing growth in China, and continued weakness in Europe.

Attractively Valued Blue-Chip Dividend Stocks For Retirement Portfolios / Portfolio / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

In a previous article found here I postulated that the S&P 500 was currently fairly valued.  In this article, I review a specific hand-selected list of Dividend Champions that I believe are reasonably priced and therefore capable of generating above-average returns at below-average risk.  In today’s low interest rate environment, I believe that high-quality blue-chip dividend growth stocks represent an attractive asset class that can provide a retirement portfolio with a growing income stream.

The Role of Risk in Portfolio Investment Asset Allocation / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDiversification of your investments is the only real free lunch, or so we are told. But how do we go about deciding what to diversify into? In this week’s short Outside the Box, my friend Jason Hsu of Research Affiliates argues that the real basis for diversification should be risk. And given that risk seems to be rising everywhere we look, thinking about how to deal with risk in our portfolios makes a great deal of sense.

I’m also including in today’s OTB a complementary piece by good friend Charles Gave of GaveKal. This is a short piece that is long on common sense and that winds up with a straightforward list of places where we can invest to minimize risk.
