The 60/40 used to yield 10%, and today yields just 2%. In the future, 7.2% returns are expected from the gold standard retirement portfolio.
You can build an ultra-low volatility ultra-yield retirement portfolio using just eight high-yield blue-chips.
Five ultra-yield Ultra SWANs are the heart of this portfolio. They yield a potentially very safe 8.1%, have a 22-year dividend growth streak, and a BBB+ credit rating.
They are expected to deliver 12.8% long-term returns, similar to the last 21 years when they doubled the market’s returns.
Combined with three high-yield ETFs, they create a 6% yielding Ultra-Yield low volatility portfolio with double-digit long-term return potential that could deliver 2.2X the wealth of a 60/40 over 30 years.
