Best Safest Stocks For 2018

We spend most of our working lives contributing money to retirement accounts but what about taking it out in retirement? If you have pre-tax, Roth, and taxable accounts, how much should you withdraw from each one? Here are some things to consider:

1) How much can you safely withdraw? The safest option is to only withdraw earnings and not touch any of the principal but at current dividend yields and interest rates, don’t expect to get much more than about 2% of your portfolio. That’s probably not enough for most people and that number can fluctuate and may not keep pace with inflation in the long term.

The traditional rule of thumb is that you can safely withdraw about 4% of the initial value of a diversified portfolio and increase that amount with inflation for about 30 years. However, the rule was developed during the 1990s when interest rates were higher and many financial experts (including the financial planner who created it) are concerned that the rule is now obsolete. It also doesn’t take into account that you may have to withdraw larger amounts while you still have a mortgage or before you start collecting pension and Social Security benefits so a steady withdrawal rate may not make sense.

Following the Brexit referendum, pro-European Union political forces have meaningfully strengthened their positions. According to the Eurobarometer survey, trust in the European Union has increased to 36%, up from 33% seen in the spring 2016 survey. That being said, Brussels’ immigration policy is still one of the top issues for the European electorate. In fact, as per the Eurobarometer survey, 56% of Europeans are negative about immigration of people from outside the European Union. As such, in our view, more anti-EU referenda are possible in the coming years.

The Netherlands is considered among the most likely countries to follow Britain out of the European Union. Similar to Brexit, a hypothetical Dutch withdrawal from the European Union is commonly referred to as a Nexit. In practice, under current Dutch legislation, there is no chance of a Dutch referendum on EU membership. However, general elections are planned to be held in the Netherlands on 15 March 2017 to elect all 150 members of the House of Representatives. According to the latest opinion polls, the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, or PVV) is likely to become the largest party with polls suggesting PVV will win 31-37 seats in the 150-seat parliament. The Party for Freedom is a right-wing pro-Nexit party.

best penny stocks: American States Water Company(AWR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    On Tuesday, analysts at Brean Capital upgraded American States Water Co (AWR), as they now believe the shares have reached an attractive entry point.

    The analysts upgraded AWR from “Hold” to “Buy” and see shares reaching $28. This price target suggests an 11% upside to the stock’s Monday closing price of $25.22.

    Brean Capital analyst Michael Gaugler said, “The shares have fallen to a price level that we now consider attractive, and our sum-of-the-parts valuation indicates fair value is $28 based on our 2014 EPS forecasts. We recommend investors begin accumulating positions under the $25.50 price level to allow sufficient (10%) upside (excluding dividends) to our target price.”

    “We acknowledge that the current environment for utility stocks in terms of interest rate impacts is less than ideal. However, we note the shares of AWR (and our other utility coverage names) have traded at higher P/E multiples when the general level of interest rates was much higher. We see the impact of higher rates as short term and negligible, particularly when we look closely at AWR’s ability to continue to raise its dividend payout versus the peer group by using free cash flow from the ASUS business,” Gaugler added.

    American States Water shares were up 72 cents, or 2.85%, during early morning trading on Tuesday. The stock is up 8% year-to-date.

  • [By Johanna Bennett]

    It could be painful watching Fossil Group (FOSL) tomorrow. The share price plunged almost 30% during after hour market action after the fashion watch maker posted disappointing 1Q financial results, warned of a weak 2Q and slashed its full-year forecasts.

    Fossil now expects sales in 2016 to drop between 1.5% and 5% compared to its former range of an 1% increase to a 3.5% decline. Full-year EPS estimates also dropped, with Fossil expecting to earn between $1.80 and $2.80, down from the old guidance of $2.80 to $3.60.

    Currency headwinds seem to have played havoc with 1Q results, impacting net sales by $16.4 billion and reducing EPS by 8 cents. Fossil earned 12 cents a share on revenue of $659.8 million, which missed the Streets forecast of 15 cents a share on revenue of $667 million. The strength of the U.S. dollar was to blame,.

    During the current quarter, Fossil expects per share earnings to range from break even to 15 cents a share, as net sales drop between 8% and 10%.
