Portfolio Management: Planning Ahead at Morris Retirement Advisors
By Richard Cox
For dividend investors, one of the most important aspects in retirement planning involves the ability to find long-term value in any financial markets environment. Currently, the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrials, and NASDAQ are all trading at extremely elevated levels, and investors are looking to find ways of shielding themselves from potential market volatility in the years ahead. But what is important to remember is that there are still valuable stocks trading at reasonable levels if you have an investment strategy that can separate the best stocks from the rest of the market.
Initially, the current trends in stocks should be compared to what is typically seen in other asset classes. Market analysts will often cite the differences seen in stocks when compared to the returns generated by commodities and real estate investments. But over the last few years, we have seen some important disconnections between the performances in US stocks and industrial metals commodities. Stock prices have moved sharply higher while the commodities and real estate sectors have languished, and this suggests strength for retirement investors that are looking to position in equities.
Historically, the average stock returns in the S&P 500 come in at roughly 10% annually. This far surpasses the average levels of inflation, so this means that traditional stock investments have been an excellent choice over time. But what some of these numbers fail to address is the fact that these broad periods have also been met with significant volatility at some stages, and this can pose a risk for investors that are entering into their retirement years. At the Morris Retirement Advisory, the portfolio performance shown much more stable trends.
