One of our 2020 highlights here at Wealthy Retirement has been the launch of Chief Income Strategist Marc Lichtenfeld’s financial YouTube series State of the Market.
In these weekly videos, Marc gives his take on Wall Street’s latest moves – and what they mean for your wallet.
Born from the chaos of the first COVID-19 wave, this groundbreaking series has tackled everything from cryptocurrency hysteria to the best place to invest $5,000 in this market.
Since March, we’ve amassed more than 6,700 regular State of the Market viewers.
Today, we’re bringing you Marc’s top three videos…
No. 3: ETFs vs. Stocks
In this episode, Marc answered one of readers’ most common questions: How can I beat the market using exchange-traded funds (ETFs)?
There are funds for every sector of the market – even dividend payers. But as Marc warned, profiting from these low-maintenance and accessible investing options is not as simple as it sounds.
“Forever Dividend Stocks” allow investors to establish a low-maintenance portfolio.
Using dividend reinvestment – and benefiting from the power of compounding – these investors can build income streams that last a lifetime (and promise to only grow).
In this episode of State of the Market, Marc explained how to identify a Forever Dividend Stock and why these stocks deserve a place in your portfolio.
No. 1: 3 Safe, High-Yielding Dividends
Many investors seek out high-yielding dividend payers in the hope of earning the most they can on their money. But often, the sky-high payouts are unsustainable and these investors are hit with a dividend cut.
However, not all high yields are unsafe. In one of Marc’s most-watched State of the Market episodes – which drew in upward of 10,000 viewers in a couple of weeks – he unmasked three high yielders whose payouts are safe despite a difficult 2020.
