Is Social Security a good retirement plan? Economics professor Antony Davies shows that Americans stand to earn significantly less and assume more risk with Social Security than other investment options. According to Davies, taxpayers would be better off both in terms of financial security and return on investment by investing their money privately. Social security is extremely expensive, soon to be insolvent, and doesn’t even offer taxpayers the most bang for their buck. For those reasons, Prof. Davies argues that it is time for the government to phase out Social Security. Davies’ solution: the government should honor its obligations to current retirees while giving Americans the freedom to invest their money as they see fit.

5 Unknown Dividend-Paying ETFs Yielding 12% Or More

 

 

 

” The stock market volatility of late puts into question how much longer the current uptrend can last. Dividend-paying ETFs can cushion the blow of day-to-day gyrations and offer investors something for sitting on their hands. Here’s a look at five of the fattest-dividend paying ETFs on the market and what’s driving there performance.

With the exception of iShares FTSE NAREIT Mortgage REIT ETF (REM), all of these are very thinly traded, so they’ll likely have wider bid-ask spreads than more liquid ETFs and it may take longer for your brokerage to fill an order.

 

2. iShares MSCI Hong Kong Small Cap (EWHS).

312-month yield: 12.75%.

One-year return: 23.15%.

IBD Relative Strength and Accumulation-Distribution Ratings: 40, B+.

EWHS gapped down $3.79, or 12.75%, on Dec. 18 when it paid out $3.70 a share in income.

EWHS is trading below the 50-day average but above the 200-day line, which means it’s in a weak uptrend. Nearly half of assets are devoted to consumer discretionary companies, a fifth is in financials and one-seventh is in technology. EWHS trades at a slight discount to emerging markets with a price-earnings ratio of 11.89 and price-to-book of 1.03. Emerging markets have a P-E of 12.3 and P-B of 1.58. “

   For the big money crowd , Obama has been a great investment . The rate of return is just fantastic . It seems that a couple hundred thousand donated to Campaign 2008 yields tens or even hundreds of millions in return . What other investment can produce that rate of interest ? 

“A one-sentence bill worth $300 million to a bank owned by a politically connected family that has doled out hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations is about to get a big push forward.

Set to be approved by the House Financial Services Committee on Thursday, the legislation would help Emigrant Savings Bank of New York sidestep a costly mandate of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. No other bank in the country would be affected.”
