Don’t Let Wall Street Ruin
Your Retirement Yet Again
- Ignore conventional wisdom on the “4% withdrawal rule”…
- If you own these 12 widely-held blue chip dividend stocks, sell them immediately …
- And buy these four “income contrarian” investments currently yielding as much as 11% a year!
This global coronavirus pandemic is creating unprecedented health risks to millions of Americans, especially Baby Boomers and retirees… and the financial implications are even worse.
Just look at the damage that has already been done:
- Interest rates have instantly gone back down to zero (AGAIN!)
- Oil, silver, cryptos and other “alternative assets” have been decimated
- And four years of stock market gains have been erased in a matter of weeks!
With our nation’s economy at a virtual standstill, it is quite likely that things will get worse before they get better.
But you don’t have to sit there paralyzed.
Nor do you have to let Wall Street’s conventional wisdom destroy your nest egg yet again.
You just have to become what I call an “income contrarian.”
By taking a few decisive actions right now, you can start getting annual yields as high as 15% right now… and set yourself up for massive capital gains once the rest of the herd comes back to their senses.
It only takes three simple steps:
Step #1: Stop listening to newspapers, financial advisors, and other mainstream sources.
Step #2: Get rid of garbage investments that won’t recover quickly (or will cease to exist).
Step #3: Start buying ridiculously cheap assets that produce safe, steady income and will slingshot higher as other investors come to their senses.
In this update, I’ll show you how to do all three — by giving you the truth mainstream sources aren’t… telling you what specific investments to dump right now… and the ignored corners of the market that look like screaming buys right now.
Crossroads like this only come about once every decade… if that.
And history proves just how big the rewards can be for the people who are able to stay calm and make good decisions when everyone else is gripped by panic.
But before we get into specifics, let me introduce myself …
Ivy League Engineer Turned
Retirement Income Expert
My name is Brett Owens.
I originally earned a degree in engineering from Cornell University. And when I first graduated, I put my knowledge to good use designing systems for Fortune 500 companies that streamlined their operations and predicted upcoming business risks.
Of course, while I was doing that – and earning a great living – I had left my investment portfolio in someone else’s hands.
I kept contributing more money, but almost every time I checked my account the balance was going DOWN!
I’ll never forget that sickening feeling of watching my money just disappear because of some other idiot’s decisions.
Finally, I couldn’t handle the pain anymore. I decided to take control of my own financial destiny once and for all.
So I took everything I knew as an engineer and applied it to my investments, even designing my own system that identified the best companies to buy at any given time.
I’m proud to say that I not only got back everything that lousy stock broker lost me, but I turned a meager $2,000 into $154,000 in less than 48 months!
Man, it felt so good!
Knowing exactly what I was investing in and why.
Watching my balance start GROWING AGAIN.
Needless to say, I was hooked.
More than that, I knew I could start helping other people experience the same level of control.
Today I’m going to show you how to start doing the same thing.
After all …
The Current Crisis Is Exposing Wall Street’s
Biggest Retirement Lie: The So-Called
4% Withdrawal Rule
Most financial planners and advisors tell retirees that it’s totally fine to withdraw about 4% of any portfolio’s value each and every year.
So if you have a million dollars, you can take out $40,000 and still have enough money to last the rest of your lifetime.
Add that $40,000 to the $40,000 a year in income from your dividends, and you’re cruising on $80,000 a year.
Or at least that’s the theory.
Too bad things don’t always go as expected.
When the market goes down, you’re forced to withdraw money at precisely the wrong time.
Rather than buying more shares as prices go lower, you are SELLING more shares just to make ends meet.
It’s dollar-cost averaging in reverse …
Your portfolio gets gutted at a rapid rate as your withdrawals compound on top of an overall shrinking value!
That’s a recipe for running out of money.
Plus, you have no chance of riding any rebound higher!
This Is Why Blue Chip Dividend Stocks
Are NOT the Answer
Look, I love dividend stocks as much as the next guy. Once in a while, I’ll even find an undervalued blue chip and tell people to buy it.
But there’s a simple problem with the same-old blue chip dividend stocks that every Wall Street advisor has been pushing since time immemorial…
They don’t produce enough income to offset the huge risks you’re taking.
How can some of the biggest names in corporate America — especially so-called “Dividend Aristocrats” with many decades of steady payments under their belts — be risky?
Just consider a stock like General Mills (GIS).
On the surface, its 3.3% yield looks pretty good.
But even putting aside the fact that I can show you better investments yielding two, three or even four times as much, here’s the hidden problem …
An annual yield of 3.3% doesn’t do much for you when the stock drops as much as 34% in a year!
That’s exactly how much GIS dropped in 2018.
Remember, that was during a raging bull market!
And General Mills is hardly an isolated example.
Ask anyone who’s been holding General Electric (GE), Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA), Ford (F), Macy’s (M), or plenty of other well-known dividend payers.
Even names like Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) and Microsoft (MSFT), which actually did okay during the massive bull market, are huge risks right now. Here’s why …
If you check out the chart of Johnson and Johnson’s dividends on the left below, everything looks good …
And even though the stock price has bounced around like crazy in the chart on the right, traditional wisdom says that doesn’t really matter to an income investor.
After all, “paper” stock price drops don’t cancel the dividend checks you’re receiving.
Of course, plenty of “solid” companies DID cut their dividends during the last big crisis and I expect the same thing to happen this time around.
On top of that, Johnson and Johnson’s current yield of 2.7% is not enough to produce adequate retirement income for anyone but a multi-millionaire.
Think about it:
Even if you put a million dollars into Johnson and Johnson right now, you’re only going to earn $27,000 a year!
Yes, the dividends can go up over time.
But not nearly fast enough to get you the income you actually need to enjoy a comfortable retirement.
And again, this is all if you have a million dollars to invest!
So if you stick to blue chip dividend stocks right now, you will almost certainly watch your portfolio go down in value… your dividend streams will be at risk… and you will be forced to sell low just to maintain a mediocre retirement lifestyle.
That’s if you stick to the BEST names.
If you own the worst ones, you could easily see your entire investment get wiped out overnight.
Here Are Twelve Popular Income Stocks
to SELL Immediately …
Buying and holding stocks — especially high-yield ones — can be a huge mistake.
In fact, high yields can be a warning sign of a stock in trouble.
Just ask the investors who rushed into RadioShack because of its outsized payments.
As the stock’s dividend yield jumped to 6%… then 8%… and even into double-digit territory, income-starved people piled in.
Then July 2012 rolled around and the company stopped making payments.
Next, their stock got caught in a death spiral.
Finally, RadioShack declared bankruptcy — completely wiping out its stock investors in the process.
It’s easy to spot this kind of tragedy in hindsight. But when it’s happening, people have their blinders on. They keep sticking to the same stocks because they believe the dividends are safe.
And remember, this RadioShack example happened in the summer of 2012… when the U.S. economy was growing rapidly.
So imagine how much greater the danger is right now!
That’s why I just put together a report that highlights 12 popular income stocks that could easily end up just like RadioShack.
Like another widely-held retail name that looks likely to wind up just like RadioShack.
While its dividends look safe in the short term, the company has suspended buybacks… the stock has been bleeding red… and this latest jolt to the U.S. economy could be the final nail in its coffin.
Or what about a popular telecom company that other investors might consider rock solid?
This company has piled up a mountain of debt in recent years; it has the high yield of the telecom industry but none of the stability!
I also have a major oil play on my “no-go” radar …
This highly-regarded company was dealt a one-two punch that no one saw coming. First the outbreak hit demand, then OPEC pulled the rug out from under the entire energy industry by discounting oil sales. Sadly, this dividend could be the next to get cut!
I’ve even uncovered hugely dangerous companies in the “steady” utilities sector!
If you own any of these stocks, I strongly suggest getting rid of them now.
And these are just a few of the dangerous names I see out there at the moment.
So it’s critical that you read my report — “The Dirty Dozen: 12 Dividend Stocks to Sell Now” — immediately.
I’ll tell you how to download a copy of this report in just a minute.
Of course, I don’t want you to think that it’s all danger out there, either.
So let’s also talk about some of the big opportunities I’m seeing — investments that can not only give you two or three times as much income as blue chip dividend stocks but also set you up for truly life-changing gains along the way!
Buy These Four Contrarian Income Investments
for Immediate Yields As High As 11% a Year
A lot of people say they’re contrarians.
Very few actually meet the definition.
To be a true contrarian you often have to go against the herd.
On a macro level, that means you’re buying when everyone else is selling… when the headlines are full of panic and there’s no way to know when the market pain will actually stop.
But it’s more than just putting some money into an index fund when things are going down, even though that’s hard enough for most people to do.
Income contrarians buy the handful of investments that are being completely misunderstood and shunned by almost everyone… investments that have big yields and safe dividend streams.
And based on what’s happening right now, I see two major areas of opportunity.
I’m calling the first area “monthly dividend funds” and you could start receiving immediate payments worth as much as 11% a year… with dividends flowing to you every single month!
While most American retirees are starving themselves with meager yields of just 3% or 4% from well-known dividend stocks, there’s a completely different type of investment that can hand you at least twice as much income… on a more frequent basis.
Just to illustrate the difference:
A lot of people buy a stock like JP Morgan Chase, attracted to its big name and quarterly dividends that add up to 3.6% a year.
In contrast, they could be buying a “monthly dividend fund” that would give them the same type of exposure to the financial sector but pay them bigger dividends on a MONTHLY basis.
Total pay raise? All the way from 3.6% a year to 11% a year… instantly!
How can this be possible? Simple.
These investments rely on two important things to boost your income — some of the biggest brains on Wall Street and a special form of borrowing power that I call “LIBOR leverage.”
Without getting into all the nitty-gritty details, the basic idea is that a group of Wall Street insiders have figured out a way to tap ultra-cheap sources of money to invest in their very favorite income investments.
And unlike hedge funds, which some of these very same people also run, even regular investors like you can participate… without needing large amounts of money… and they’re as easy to buy as any regular stock or fund through a standard brokerage account.
Perhaps the best part right now is that their LIBOR leverage — what it costs to actually borrow money — has been improving.
Yet investors are completely missing that point right now.
In fact, they are even discounting the value of the underlying investments inside my favorite “monthly dividend funds.”
So by choosing the right ones, you not only get outsized income payments every month but also have the chance to capture the difference when you sell — big capital gain potential on top of the 11% annual yields!
Add it all up and you have the chance to earn way more income… paid on a monthly basis… with downside protection… and the possibility of walking a way with a big capital gain kicker if you ever decide to cash out.
For example, one of my favorite funds will start handing you 7.3% a year and looks to be undervalued by as much as 12% right now…
A second one yields 11% and gives you exposure to a part of the economy that is being unnecessarily ignored right now…
And a third is run by one of the smartest people on Wall Street. Its annual yield is also a staggering 11%!
I’ve put details on all three of these into a special report called “Monthly Dividend Superstars: 9.8% Yields With 10% Upside.”
In it, I tell you how to buy these investments… what prices you should pay… and all the reasons they’re my favorites right now.
And in just a minute I’ll tell you how to get a copy of the report (along with the “Dirty Dozen” report) for free.
But first there’s one more opportunity to cover… something I’m calling “Warren Buffett Bonds.”
As I’ve already said, most investors just buy common dividend stocks for income.
If they’re really brave, they might buy a few bonds — either individually or through a mutual fund.
But there’s another type of investment that splits the difference between these two categories, carrying some of the advantages of each.
In a nutshell, these investments:
- Can be bought and sold like regular common stocks,
- But typically carry higher yields than their common counterparts,
- Plus, provide holders with more safety in the event of future market shifts or pullbacks.
You can see why these investments have been a Warren Buffett favorite over the years.
In fact, he was buying them like crazy during the last major downturn and his returns ended up being absolutely amazing!
Just one example proves how profitable these deals can be…
Buffett struck a deal with Bank of America during the last downturn, investing $5 billion and got guaranteed yields of 6% a year in return along with a special provision that allowed him to get nearly 700,000,000 shares of BAC stock at a fixed price of $7.14.
Between that original “Buffett bond” deal and some additional investments Warren has made in the years since, his total profits have exceeded $22.75 billion.
On a percentage basis, Buffett earned a total return of 181%!
Obviously, there’s no guarantee his favorite type of investment will produce similar gains this time around.
But I think the very best chance of doing it is by enlisting the help of another Wall Street legend who actively manages a portfolio of these “Buffett bonds.”
I believe his approach eliminates a lot of unnecessary credit risk that comes with the handful of passive funds investing in these “Buffett bonds.”
On average, this particular group of “Buffett bonds” has already been handing investors more than 10% a year since it became available in 2013… more than TRIPLING the returns of a broad market bond index over the same time period.
And given the environment right now, I think the biggest profit potential is right there for the taking!
So I’ve put together a third report that tells you who this manager is… how to get access to his portfolio… and all the details on “Buffett bonds” themselves (including why they act somewhat like bonds but are technically different).
This third report is called “Looking Past Common Dividends for 7.5% Income.”
By the way, perhaps the best part of this particular investment is the fact that it is NOT correlated to the stock market – meaning it can spit out large payments no matter what the market for common stocks is doing.
Right now, those payments are worth an amazing 7.5% a year… more than the stock market has typically produced over the last 100 years.
