There was a time when people didn’t worry about retirement, because there was no such thing. Rather, with significantly shorter life expectancies, most people worked until they died. As the author of today’s article notes, “The average American now retires at age 62 while 100 years ago, the average American died at age 51” – and this development has some critical investor and market implications. For more – including the biggest risk retirees face, whether the baby boomer retirement wave could crash the markets, and “two simple solutions that can make your money go further to take advantage of the fact that people are living longer” – CLICK HERE.

For his current holdings, his second thoughts on 2018, and how he’s responding to warning signals for 2019, CLICK HERE.
The widely referenced 4% rule suggests that retirees can safely withdraw that amount from their retirement accounts each year. However, the author of today’s article notes that the “wisdom” of the 4% rule collapses when it slams into the reality of a market slump. Instead, he advocates for another strategy for funding your golden years: “investments paying outsized cash dividends of 5.4%, 7.7% and even higher.” He proceeds to highlight two such investments with “pullback-proof” dividends – both of which come from the top performing healthcare sector.

When it comes to retirement planning, the author of today’s article notes that “What’s been missing for most people is a simple way to calculate the level of spending that can be generated from a given savings amount, that takes into account realistic assumptions about a retiree’s longevity as well as a forecast for market returns.” However, there is a new tool available that seeks to fill that need – and it only requires two simple inputs to generate spending estimates.

At this time of year much is written about the benefits of tax-loss harvesting. Finding losers to sell, however, may be a particularly difficult undertaking this year given the market’s performance. Instead of tax-loss harvesting, today’s article looks at “another tax-harvesting strategy [that] looks to be better suited to this year’s buoyant market conditions: tax-gain harvesting.” Why would investors want to pre-emptively realize a gain, what “small subset of the investing public” would benefit from this strategy – and why might new retirees be in its “sweet spot”?
