Let's face it, nobody wants to ever see suffering around the globe. Especially when that suffering is inflicted in a civil conflict that creates fear of a global response. It is times like these that create unforeseen opportunities for stock market investors who realize that these events, while awful and horrible, will be short lived.
The Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio is specifically geared to generate income. When opportunities present themselves to add shares to existing positions, the savvy investor will jump on it for several key reasons:
- Picking up cheap shares adds more income from dividends.
- Potentially increasing the yield on cost will go a long way towards a higher stream of income for a more secure retirement.
Market corrections and world wide events offer the clearest opportunities to embrace these actions.
The portfolio consists of Ford (NYSE:F), Chevron (NYSE:CVX), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), AT&T (NYSE:T), General Electric (NYSE:GE), BlackRock Kelso Capital (NASDAQ:BKCC), KKR Financial (KFN), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), CSX Corp. (NASDAQ:CSX), Realty Income (NYSE:O), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), Annaly Capital (NYSE:NLY), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM), and Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC), and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC).
Which Stocks Look Ripe Enough To Pick
Getting right down to it, shares of JNJ and WFC, right now, offer the best low-hanging fruit to pick from. Each of these companies have stellar businesses, offer winning dividend yields, and are best-of-breed stocks.
JNJ is down between 0.50-1.00% right now, and the yield is now over 3.00%. WFC is also down between 1.00-2.00% today, and its yield is also now over 3.00%.
- JNJ is being sold off as part of the correction, and profit taking.
- WFC is big bank that has seen its share appreciate and while profit taking is clear, there is also stress due to interest rates, as well as the world events.
Folks, this ia the way to do it for the long-term financial security you seek. Taking advantage of opportunities is vital to our overall strategy.
More shares of great stocks will mean more income for investors immediately. Not to mention the inevitable rebound after the crisis subsides.
