Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019

Shutterstock

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.

Best Small Cap Stocks To Invest In 2018

On Wednesday, our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter suggested going long again on small cap gene therapy stock Uniqure NV (NASDAQ: QURE):

QURE is showing signs of a tradable reversal as soon as early next year. Assuming one or both of these ideas start to find traction like they did the last time we suggested them, we could be looking at some pretty nice gains yet again. And, when you consider the entire biotech space is subject to tax loss selling this year, biotech could be one sector that trades well come first of the year.

Why? Because many investors will re-enter back into many of those ideas they believe continue to show promise in an effort to regain exposure after taking the tax loss in 2016. Trust me when I say, this happens all of the time.

Our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter has a very detailed discussion about uniQures fundamentals, technical chart and a potential long trading strategy:
