The Secret Behind Wall Street’s “100% Success Club”
The older we get, the less time we have to recover from major hits in the stock market. That means that, as the years pile on, we have to adjust our portfolios to increase our lower-risk holdings – like bonds, cash, annuities, etc.
I’ve always recommended using your age as a guide if you’re not using something like The Oxford Wealth Pyramid to structure your allocations.
Your age would correspond to the percentage you’d hold in more stable and predictable investments, as opposed to the more commonly known 60-40 rule.
For example, a 65-year-old person would have 65% of his portfolio in lower-risk positions. And this amount would be adjusted annually. A 70-year-old would hold 70% in lower-risk investments, etc.
But here’s the problem: Too many people – driven by fear of volatility – hold too many of these kinds of safe investments…
If you hold only low-risk investments, you actually increase your risk of financial problems in retirement.
Why? The fact is that you can’t survive 20 or 30 years in retirement with only income and ultrasafe holdings. It’s an inflation-driven formula for disaster.
If you don’t want to wake up broke in your 80s, no matter what your age, you have to hold some kinds of growth investments in your portfolio.
Seniors can own stocks and reduce their risk by a significant margin just by doing something as simple as mimicking insider trading. By that, I don’t mean the illegal kind of insider trading.
I mean watching what the officers of the biggest and best corporations in the world are doing.
Corporate officers sell their stocks for lots of reasons… retirement, buying a house, divorce, etc.
But they buy for only one reason: They have privileged information that tells them their stock is going up.
When insiders buy their companies’ stocks, they’re required by federal law to report it to the SEC, which makes it public information. Every time a corporate officer or insider buys stock in his own company, he has to tell the world about it. Reporting those buy transactions makes it legal insider trading.
And, as improbable as it may sound, there’s a group of corporate insiders who’ve never taken a loss on their own stocks. NEVER!
These 30 individuals have perfect track records of buying just before their stocks go up.
This information is available – if you know where to find it. And using it can lead to more safety and consistent returns.
Safety and consistent returns are what we “over 60” types require.
Still, I’m sure that somewhere there’s an officer of a big company who jumped too soon or too far and didn’t make money.
But based on this group’s history of success (it’s been nicknamed the “100% Success Club”) it can be very lucrative.
In some cases, ignoring insider buying and the long-term returns these kinds of trades have produced is beyond irresponsible.
This “club” is one of the best sources of buy-side information in the business – and one that can only add to the safety of holding equities in our golden years.
Unless you’re sitting on so much money you don’t have to ever worry about the effects of longevity and inflation, you must hold an appropriate amount of stocks in your portfolio.
And using legal insider information is one of the few ways we have to make it safer.
