Beating the Dow with bonds: a high-return, low-risk strategy for outperforming the pros even when stocks go south
In 1989 Michael O'Higgins rocked the investment world. By following a very simple formula, he asserted, investors could beat the pros 95 percent of the time by putting 100 percent of their money into the "dog" stocks of the Dow. Not only did his formula work for nearly a decade, but the publication of Beating the Dow spawned a veritable industry, including websites, mutual funds, and $20 billion worth of investments, elevating the theory to legendary status.
Now O'Higgins is back--and geared to rock the investment world again. With stock market fluctuations ranging from all-time highs to all-time lows, the King of the Dow Dogs insists that incorporating bonds--once considered the ugly stepsibling to stocks--into your portfolio is the only way to win.
In Beating the Dow with Bonds, you will learn:how to tell when stocks aren't the best place to be for the highest returns--and where to go in the meantime how to protect yourself from radical market fluctuations and continue to beat the Dow a reliable, easy-to-understand method of assessing the attractiveness of T-bonds, T-bills, and stock in order to achieve the best return with the least risk why, in the thirty years since December 1968, this new strategy of asset allocation would have produced almost thirty times the cumulative return of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and S&P 500--and five times the cumulative return of a Beating the Dow five-stock strategy how investors would have gained annual returns of 24.1 percent using this new strategy--verses annual returns of 18.2 percent with a Dow-based, stocks-only strategy and an 11.2 percent annual performance by the DJIA and S&P 500.
For in investors with as little as $5,000, Beating the Dow with Bonds provides a safer, more reliable opportunity to beat the Dow not just in today's market--but in any market.
