Best Investments For Retirement

Best Investments For Retirement

I bought a book called How To Retire Happy by  Stan Hinden.  In the section on investments it lists 5 investments for retirement. They are multisector bond mutual fund, high quality dividend-paying stock portfolio,variable annuity, and  then a managed diversified portfolio strategy and  a managed portfolio of exchange traded funds.Today we are going to focus on stocks.

Stocks Are A Top Asset

Stocks are a little piece of a company that you own.  They tend to grow in value over time. Stocks are usually what you own in your 401(k). A mutual fund is a group of 100 to 200 companies that are owned by many people.  They ae mutually owned.

Advantages of Mutual Funds

One of the advantages of mutual funds is that you own more than one company.  If something bad happens to one company it will not hurt the whole mutual fund.  There is safety in numbers.  A  mutual fund is safer than one single stock. You own a whole basket of companies.

One Top Fund For Years

In the past 10 years I have noticed one mutual fund that is consistently at or near the top of stock mutual funds. It is the Fidelity Contrafund.  Morningstar rates mutual funds and they put Fidelity Contrafund in the top 40 out of 8000 mutual funds.  This is information we need to know to help us retire happy with plenty of money.

Use the Power of Compounding–the Milionaire’s Secret

It is really hard to save enough for a comfortable retirement.  But fortunately we can use the power of compounding to help our funds grow faster.  In fact they can grow at a faster and faster rate due to compounding.  You begin to receive growth of your original investment plus growth on the growth of your investment.  If you have a 10% growth one year and then 10% growth the next year your total growth is not 20% but 21% because of compounding.

Investing is a Necssary Life Skill Today in America

All of us who want to retire need to learn the skill of investing.  Virtually all millionaires invest.  Most millionaires are over 60 because it takes time to grow an investment.  Time is on your side.  The more time you have the more sure you can be of having enough money to retire in style.  In retirement we want to go from doing what we have to, to doing what we want to.

My Plan For Investing

Say I have $100,000 to invest. I could invest it all at once. But what if it goes down 10% in the first month?  I could invest $20,000 a month for five months.  That way I automatically buy more when the price is low and I buy less when the price is high.  This plan forces me to buy low so I can sell high.  

Of course I want to put my money into one of the best performing funds like Fidelity Contrafund.  The fees are relatively low, the sisk is below average. All this according to Morningstar.

Good luck with your retirement plans and happy investing.

This is the best website building platform I have ever seen.  I have been with WA since Mar 3, 1917. This Wealthy Affiliate Review will show you how to retire with extra affiliate income. I will be talking about many different aspects of this website to help you get a clear understanding of what it is like. We will cover training, support, website building, wordpress hosting. research tools, success stories, price, and affiliate rating and more.

Training –Best online business training anywhere?

The training for Wealthy Affiliate is really good.  It is thorough and complete.  New training is coming on every week. There is more training than you will probably be able to use.  But it is all there if you need it.

You can get more help for free than most courses give you for a fee.  I took a course once for $89 to help me BUILD A WORDPRESS WEBSITE in 30 MINUTES.  I failed to get any website built at all.

I also bought a book that was supposed to help BUILD A WORDPRESS WEBSITE FAST.  I worked on it for a couple of weeks and never did get a website completed.  I got it started but then I got stuck.

In contrast I was able to build a website in less than 5 minutes on the Wealthy Affiliate platform.  I was amazed and very pleased.

Most of the training is by video and with some reading too.  The online entrepreneurship course is seven levels with 10 courses on each level.  The Affiliate Bootcamp course is seven phases of instruction. There are 10  lessons in each phase. Each lesson has specific tasks to complete, usually four. I like that each lesson is broken down into tasks.  It helps you see your progress as you move through the course.—-

Support–Always available

The support is very good and always available.  You have support from over 1,000,000 in the community.  It is a fantastic positive and encouraging community. There is no reason to stay stuck no matter what happens.  You can even ask a question of the co-owner Kyle.  Asking for help is as close as a bar at the top of your screen.  Just type in your question. Sometimes your question will be answered within minutes.  Sometimes it will take a little longer, but it will be answered.

There are people who are special helpers for each section of your training.  This is another way support is readily available.

Once or twice I had trouble logging in to my website.  So I read a discussion that answered my question.

There is also a special support platform for support on any issue with your website. Just click on the support and type in your question.

Siterubix Suite–Build a free site fast

The siterubix suite is where you can build a website in 30 seconds.  I took me a little more time. I took less than five minutes.  for my first website.  It really is that easy.  You just follow the directions.   This compares to my other efforts that failed completely or partially.

This is very powerful and easy to use.  You do not need any experience to build your own website in a few minutes or even seconds. I recently discovered how easy it is to add pictures to your website.  This adds visual appeal and makes your website more interesting and easier to read.

Website Hosting–Simple and Easy

It is a good idea to own your own web domain. You can do that here easily with a few clicks and thinking of a domain name. WA will even help you with that.  It is inexpensive too.  It is something like $15 a year or less. You can pay for one year or several. It is up to you.

Writing Platform–Easy and Fast

I am using the writing platform now to write this post. It is easy to use.  You are even given a total word count at the bottom of the page.  This can help you to know when you have reached your writing goals.  Very nice. It is easy to write bold headlines to break up your writing and make it easy to read.

You will also like the feature of your writing being saved automatically.  You never have to worry about losing your writing because you forgot to save it.

Keyword Tool–A Key to Your Success

The keyword tool in WA will help you get traffic.  It is called Jaaxy. Traffic brings rankings. Rankings bring more traffic and more money from your marketing efforts.  This is an easy-to-use tool that can really help propel your business to success. By using keywords that searchers use to find information you can build your traffic. To find out more go to:  Also see my post on jaaxy 

Affiliate Program–Best in the industry?

The affiliate program is the best in the industry.  I know that Amazon pays 4% and some others pay 8% but WA pays 50% to Premium members.  That comes to $175 for every yearly membership referral.  That is outstanding.  I don’t know of anything that pays better.  You can also get smaller but more frequent referrals of $23.50 for a monthly membership. Good luck in your affiliate marketing adventure. I believe this is the affiliate program you have been looking for.  There is nothing better for you to turn words into money.

Success Stories

Those people who went to the Las Vegas all expense paid trip sold 300 or more memberships.  One man that I follow reached the ten million mark in total number of visitors. That is truly amazing!  It is exciting and fun to read about the successes of others in the community.

I remember one man who started a membership website and he makes $6,000 per month.

Another member built up her website fast. She did it in only 2 years. She now makes $3,000 per month.


You get a free trial for 7 days.  Take advantage of your time.  After that it is  $19 for the first 30 days of Premium membership. Then membership is $47 a month or $359 yearly.   You save a lot with the yearly membership ($205).

This is a very reasonable price for what you get. You could spend a lot more and get less almost anywhere else. Compare this to the price of business courses at a college or university.  You could pay $359 for each hour of classes at a college or university.

Wealthy Affiliate Rating

My overall rating for Wealthy Affiliate is an outstanding 98 out of a 100.  From my experience with WA there is nothing close to it that I know about.  I have had interest in making money online for 9 years now. I wish I had discovered Wealthy Affiliate years earlier. It would have saved me a lot of time and energy.

Making the transition to retirement

Something like 10,000 per day are reaching retirement age. But are you ready? Do you have enough money?

If you are wondering how your savings compares with other baby boomers please see the page on average retirement savings.

If you feel like you do not have enough what do you do?  I believe many baby boomers need additional sources of income both now and after they reach retirement age.

Extra income allows you not to spend the savings that you have so far.  You can keep all your savings for a few years if you have enough income coming in.
