The Terror of Outliving Your Money

The terror of outliving your money has now taken hold for too many investors. It’s not hard to see why, given that discerning investors remember like yesterday the 1965-1981 16-year bear market, where the Dow ended up at 875, 10% lower than its 1965 peak of 969. A little closer to home, we all recall with concern the 1999-2008 nine-year bear market, which left the Dow down a frightening 24% from its 11,497 peak of 1999. For all retired and soon-to-be-retired investors, there is a fast and hard lesson to be learned here. Look to dividends and interest and the miracle of compound interest. Let capital appreciation come as it may or, as I have shown, may not. My Retirement Compounders Program, outlined monthly in my Intelligence Report and at my family investment management company (, will guide you.
