Is Your Portfolio Sinking?

May 2nd, 2009

sinking-shipNo one knows if 2008 was an anomaly or the beginning of a prolonged missile attack similar to the 1930s. Investors need to realize that sticking to their investment plan is essential, and that the investment principles of diversification, tax efficiency, and cost containment will work over the longer term.

It is true that investors who purchased equities at the peak in1929 weren’t made whole until 1949, but those investors who abandoned equities for cash after the crash waited much longer to break even. For investors owning equities at the nadir of the decline in 1932 experienced the best returns ever for equities over the ensuing 5, 10, and 20 year periods.

Even the current yield on equity instruments should calm investors nerves. Today, investors could guarantee their return for the next 10 years by purchasing a Treasury bond. They would earn roughly 2.8% for the next decade. Or, investors could buy an equity ETF and capture a much higher yield.The high yielding WisdomTree Total Dividend Fund (NYSEArca: DTD) currently yields 4.24%. The PowerShares International Dividend Achievers Index (NYSEArca: PID) boasts a 5.26% yield while the iShares Dow Jones Real Estate (NYSEArca:IYR) provides investors a 12.5% yield.
