The Wall St Journal outlined a few in the Saturday edition on 12/1/12: You can find the article here http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324020804578149444248625794.html, but I’ll paraphrase the best items below:
- Don’t: Buy High Yield Dividend Stocks
- Do: Buy Healthy Growing Dividends
Pigs get fat, and hogs get slaughtered. Need I say more?
Don’t: Load up on Junk Bonds
Do: Ease Into Leveraged Loans
On Complex Instruments:
Don’t: Rush into structured notes
Do: Consider simpler options strategies
On Secondary Market Annuities:
Sadly, we were were not featured – YET- in the WSJ. But when you really analyze it, Secondary Market Annuities are nothing more than an existing annuity being sold at a discount from one individual to another. We just facilitate the process, and you get a great yield on this ‘previously owned annuity’ as a result.
The yield is fantastic the security is perfected by a court administered process, and we triple check things with outside legal review on all cases. Honestly, if you’re looking for yield, you might need to stop second guessing yourself and give us a call to get on your own way to a safe and secure financial future.
