Bear markets are terrifying for some, exhausting for many, but highly profitable for all smart long-term investors.
This bear market likely has a few more months to go to final bottom, but I’m bargain hunting with my top priority high-yield world-beater blue chips.
Here are 7 of my favorite high-yield blue-chips that I’ve been buying in this bear market and you should consider doing the same.
They yield a very safe 6.7%, have a BBB+ credit rating, 27-year dividend growth streak, are 31% undervalued, and are expected to deliver 14.3% long-term returns just as they’ve done for 19 years.
Combined with world-class blue-chip ETFs, they can create a ZEUS High-Yield Income Growth portfolio that yields 5.3%, can deliver 11.1% long-term returns, but with half the declines of the S&P during the bear markets of 2022, 2020, 2018, and Great Recession.
In the 2011 bear market, ZEUS went up while the market fell 22%. World-beater blue-chips like these are how you ride over market potholes in a Rolls Royce and retire in safety and splendor, no matter what the market or economy does in the future.
