The 1% Solution

You probably know the story of Sherlock Holmes and the 7% solution. He had a drug addiction. He needed the drug. He was able to control his addiction by taking the drug in a 7% concentration. Anyone with common sense knows you cannot survive on 7%. It is a slow death.

When you retire you are familiar that most brokers and financial planners recommend you go into nice safe bonds that pay about 7% annually. That 7% solution will barely keep you alive until you die. Isn't there a better solution?

Conventional wisdom states that you should become extremely conservative when you are old and retire so your funds will last you until you check out. Let me assure there is no such thing as a conservative investment. That is an oxymoron. Even nice safe bonds have a way of going down the toilet. Even municipal bonds. So far U.S. government bonds have stood the test of time. That is, if you can live off that little 7% income. There is a better solution. I like the 1% solution. No, not 1% annually, but 1% weekly. No I am not kidding. Personally, I only invest in mutual funds and my return is usually about 1% per week. It can be done.

Brokers and most financial planners ("experts") will have you in a diversified portfolio - stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, etc., that changes as you get older. I also believe in mutual funds, only no-load mutual funds. My diversity is in different types of funds, but only in funds that are in the top 1% or better of all funds. There are more than 8,000 mutual funds and I pick the ones that are the best performers for the past 12 months and I check monthly to see they remain there. If it doesn't, I sell it and buy one that is. You can check this by looking in Investor's Business Daily newspaper as they list the top 25 for the past 6 months and 12 months. Forget 3 years and 5 years. You pick yours from the top ten. If you will do this you will average just about 1% per week in any bull market.

Isn't it time you looked at the 1% solution for your finances?
