A relatively safe single-stock retirement plan is possible if you buy the right blue-chip ETF.
My favorite ETF owns almost 300 of the highest-quality dividend aristocrats and future aristocrats. If this ETF owns a stock, it’s worth owning.
Long-term analysts think this ETF will deliver market-beating 12% annual returns and around 11% to 13% annual income growth, just as dividend growth blue-chips have done for the last 50 years.
That means a potential life-changing 17X inflation-adjusted return for retirees and 305X real returns for younger investors.
Combining my favorite ETF with 14 other blue-chips creates a 4.1% yielding portfolio, with 12% to 13% historical returns, 12% to 14% likely future returns, and 10% average peak declines in bear markets, 70% less than the S&P 500.
This is the portfolio I’m moving all my life savings into over the next few years.
