What Is A Bond Investor To Do ? Guidelines

Bond returns are at record lows.

Bond investors must consider a switch of some funds into equities but conservative investors fear the stock market is a Jedi Knight turned to the Dark Side waiting to swoop down and destroy their portfolio. You must act to preserve your ” buying power” but what to do ?

Here is a guideline we suggest for building a portfolio that cuts down risk( risk cannot be eliminated ):

1) limit selections to common stock listed on major exchanges

2) no stock selling for less than $5.00

3) only select companies that are profitable

4) only purchase stocks that are paying a dividend

5) avoid attempts at market timing

The strategy outlined in this  guideline is simple but not easy to follow. For a more detailed explanation of selection criteria please refer to The Apprentice Millionaire Portfolio available from amazon.com

The Magic Of Compound Interest

-Or   Why Reinvest Your Dividends : The Apprentice Millionaire Portfolio – available at Amazon.com) )

Here’s a mind-blowing example from a study conducted by Richard Russell of the Dow Theory Letters on the power of compounding:

An 18-year-old girl puts $2,000 into an account each year from the ages of 19-25, then stops contributing and lets it compound at a rate of 10% until age 65. That means she has contributed only $14,000 in total. But because of compounding, by age 65, she’s almost a millionaire, with $944,641 in her account.

Her Idiot Brother

Now, let’s say this girl has a twin brother. He’s not as disciplined and continues to blow his money on useless things. Finally, at age 26, he realizes he needs to start saving, too.

He puts $2,000 per year into his account starting at age 26. He also lets his money compound at a rate of 10% until age 65. Except he contributes $2,000 every single year from ages 26-65. That means he’s contributed $80,000 in total… more than five times what his sister has contributed.

By age 65, he’s almost a millionaire, too, with $973,074 in his account.

Why Invest in Gold and Gold Stocks – and Why Now ?

Historically, gold has been a proven method of preserving value when a national currency was losing value. If your investments are valued in a depreciating currency, allocating a portion to gold assets is similar to a financial insurance policy. In the past year, the climb in the price of gold above $1600 per ounce is due to many factors, one being that the dollar is steadily losing value.

  • The dollar is weak and getting weaker due to national economic policies  like quantitative easing , which don’t appear to have an end.
  • Gold price appreciation makes up for lost interest, especially in a bull market.
  • The last ten years are a major bull move similar to the 70′s when gold moved from $38 to over $800.
  • Central banks in several countries have been increasing their gold holdings as part of their foreign reserves, instead of selling.
  • All gold funds are in a long term uptrend with bullion get  ready for an new gold bull market surge in 2013.
  • The trend of commodity prices  ( such as food stuffs ) to increase is relative to gold price increases.
  • Worldwide gold production is not matching consumption. The price will go up further with demand.
  • Most gold consumption is done in India and China and their demand is increasing with their increase in national wealth.
  • U.S. government economic policies over the past decade have systematically projected the U.S. economy down a road with uncontrollable federal spending and an uncontrollably increasing trade deficits. Both will cause the dollar to lose in international value and will increase the price of alternative investments, such as gold.
