Grow Your Income Faster Than Inflation

Grow Your Income Faster Than InflationGood afternoon EWT, one of the issues we have been discussing at HDO are the real risks of rising inflation and its devastating effects for those who cannot offset inflation with higher paychecks, such as retirees, or those near retirement. These risks can also be devastating, even if you are employed and saving towards building your nest egg. We published an article to members last week highlighting some areas that we are focussing on to hedge against inflation risk. Below is a portion of that article.

Don't Rush: The Best Way To Establish A New Position

Patience is perhaps one of the most underrated virtues of investing. It is also perhaps one of the most important. Before buying, it is important to take the time to do your due diligence. Make sure you understand the company, the upside, and the risks.Then, even after you make the decision to establish a position, it is best to exercise patience. Typically, we recommend investing up to 2-3% of your portfolio in any single stock. We do not recommend buying a 3% position in a single buy.Waves of the Ocean Method - Our Preferred MethodThis method involves breaking up your buying into several waves or tranches.

The Importance of Diversifying

One frequent question I get is some variation of "if you had to pick one stock...." or "if you have $X and which 3 stocks would you buy?" My answer is that I wouldn't buy just one or split some amount of money among just a handful of stocks. Investors are often tempted to load up on "the best" stocks. If you have a portfolio of several dozen stocks, odds are that a few of them are going to underperform. Some will even be outright losers. The more stocks you pick, the more likely it is that at least one of those picks is going to perform poorly.

Intro To Preferred Shares

We are huge fans of utilizing fixed-income investments to build the base of an income portfolio. Fixed-income includes preferred shares, bonds/baby bonds, and bond funds.The concept of fixed-income is a little bit different than you might be used to if you have only been investing in common stocks. A fixed-income investment is one that has a set principal that is owed to the investor, and until that principal is paid back, the investor gets a coupon payment.While capital gains are definitely possible in fixed-income investments, the primary goal of these investments is to provide steady and stable income.Preferred SharesPreferred equity is one of our favorite forms of fixed-income because they are easily accessible to retail investors.

Building An Income Portfolio

So you want to build an income portfolio, where do you start? Let's take a look at the anatomy of The Income Method.Build A FoundationWhat is the most important part of your house? Well, you might not think about it very frequently, but without a good foundation, your house is not going to be useful for very long. Foundations provide stability and rigidity to the entire home.We recommend a foundation of 30-50% fixed-income investments, including preferred shares, bonds, baby bonds, and bond funds. These picks are higher up the corporate structure so their dividends/interest payments are much safer than common equity dividends.

Introduction to The Income Method

Welcome to High Dividend Opportunities, aka HDO. For my entire investing career, I have been attracted to stocks that pay dividends. If a company that I own a part of is doing well and is profitable, I want to be paid!Over the decades, the market has gone through phases where dividend stocks were out of favor, and phases when they were in favor. Yet in every environment, the power of having significant cash-flow in a portfolio is undeniable. Cash is always king.Looking even further back into history, the most valuable of assets have been those that in turn generate more money or wealth.
