finding yieldFinding a competitive yield in today’s low rate environment is a challenge.  Investors flock to all kinds of off-beat options when times get tough. But keep you head- it’s easy to go wrong.

The Wall St Journal outlined a few in the Saturday edition on 12/1/12:  You can find the article here, but I’ll paraphrase the best items below:

On Yield

  • Don’t: Buy High Yield Dividend Stocks
  • Do: Buy Healthy Growing Dividends

Pigs get fat, and hogs get slaughtered. Need I say more?

On Bonds:

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.
