If that approach seems too risky, then at least put your money in a high-yielding dividend stock that can raise its prices as inflation rises. A company with a rock-solid balance sheet like Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) or The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) which has raised its dividend every year and currently and currently yields 2.8%. Look at the below chart to see how the dividends they’ve paid out to shareholders have risen over the last 10 years. You don’t get the same upside with bonds!
Again, even if you don’t listen to a word I said here, please remember that buying treasuries is not nearly as risk-free as people would like you to believe. If you have a logical, cogent argument against my logic, please enter it the comment section below.
