Hunting down a decent yield in today’s low interest rate environment isn’t easy for income investors.
For years, savers and retirees have suffered from central bank policies ranging from low interest to no interest. Some countries, such as Switzerland, Sweden, and Japan, even have negative interest rates.
The old rule that banks should pay their depositors for the risk of lending out their money has been turned on its head. Now many depositors pay for the privilege of keeping their own money in a bank account.
Retirees used to rely on what were safe-haven investments with sizable yields, including CDs and money market accounts, to bolster their nest egg. But now, these barely pay you enough interest to buy a pack of chewing gum.
And even if the Fed decides to start hiking interest rates again, the incremental changes it is likely to make won’t make much of a difference to savers in the foreseeable future. Too little, too late.
So what are yield-seeking investors supposed to do?
I’m Patrick Watson, senior economic analyst here at Mauldin Economics.
I’ve known John Mauldin for over 30 years now and worked with him for over a decade. I’ve been helping him assemble his research-intensive newsletter, Thoughts from the Frontline, week after week for hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic readers across the globe.
If you asked me about my greatest skill, I’d probably name my ability to spot macroeconomic trends in the making. I do this by following seemingly unrelated threads and finding out how they connect.
I use that skill in my position as the writer and managing editor of a number of Mauldin Economics’ services, including the monthly newsletter Yield Shark.
Yield Shark is Mauldin’s flagship income advisory service. My team and I are well aware of the unique challenges income investors are facing today, so our declared mission is to help our subscribers by scouring the seas for high-yield income opportunities.
One of the things I put a lot of emphasis on is that Yield Shark stays nimble.
Being inflexible in a time of great and often dramatic transformations can be the death knell for any investor’s portfolio. So it’s important to me—on behalf of my subscribers—that we’re able to adjust the Yield Shark portfolio to shifting circumstances, changing its course on a dime if necessary.
I’ll give you a glimpse of how I envision the direction of Yield Shark over the next year or more, as we deal with a new US president, an all-Republican Congress, and considerable market volatility. It involves these three steps:
This three-step approach will help you earn sustainable current income and protect your capital from big losses. My biggest concern is your peace of mind.
Income investors have to get creative in order to earn the steady yield they want and rely on. Yield Shark helps you to achieve that goal—with flexible strategies that adjust to changing political and economic circumstances.
