The 2022 bear market might not bottom for another eight months or so. We’re at the end of phase two of a four-phase recession.
Fortunately, high-yield blue-chip dividends can help you stay sane, safe, and preserve your standard of living in even the most extreme market crashes.
Here are 9 high-yield Ultra SWAN (sleep well at night) quality blue-chips all retirees should consider owning for this and future recessions.
They yield a very safe 6% yield, have a 23-year dividend growth streak, an A-credit rating, and offer 13% Nasdaq-beating long-term return potential, just as they’ve delivered for the last 24 years.
Combined with the best high-yield blue-chip, bond, and managed future ETFs, they create the ZEUS High-Yield Ultra SWAN retirement portfolio that yields 5.5%, offer double-digit long-term return potential, and is 33% less volatile than the stock market, falling 33% to 66% less during even the most extreme market crashes.
