a- |r (Iowa) ADVANCt MONDAY, JUNt 13, W6 •»;* Atf tYTHOMA*l.6'HAHA • CMlrmift, tettt »f truitti* Nttloritl Aitdelitlen ttf tflvMtmtfit Club* V 0. I am 46, married and have no minor children, Our homo is oaid for. In addition to my •alary of $16,000 a year, I have a, rental that pays $75 a month, three notes that pay $330 a month in principal plus Inter* est, $4,000 in savings, insurance company stock valued at $10,000 And insurance policies with a caili value of $5,000, I'm thinking of quitting my job and get ting something part time, but may delay this a , few. years. Would you suggest that I buy into a mutual fund to provide Income? Also should I keep my insurance policies ot $25,000 .to provide $150 a month when I am 65? I'm not too sold on my stock investment because It certainly is in a slump right now. A. Congratulations on a fine job of accumulating an estate. And it appears you have good business judgment. If you continue working five or ten more years you should be able to retire in comfort. '••» I'm assuming that your notes are connected with real estate. If you have skill in selecting in- yestments in this field then you probably would want to continue making some of your investments there. I think you are weak in stock investments and I suggest that you consider putting more of your money there. Sensible, regular investments in securities give you the best available hedge against our continuing inflation. . - ,"',"••' : , •tVWith the balance, why not start building a portfolio? At your age you should put considerable emphasis on growth, using pretty much the National Association of Investment Clur bs' approach, with 25 percent of your .holdings in major companies in major industries with a growth record of .5 to 7 percent; 25 percent in quite small companies where growth is 12 percent or better; the balance in companies of medium size with a growth ranging from 7 to 12 parcent. , .To build your stock holdings, why not use the payments you are now ree&iving from your present investments? On insurance, if your objective is income, you are 5 on the right track. But, since: your family is grown and your estate is building rapidly, I think 'you might do better with t<erm insurance, which is much less expensive, and put what you save on premiums into your stock . accumulation program. ! You do give me concern with the remark you have made about your. present stock holding. If you are the nervous type and can't stand the fluctuations which take place in the stock market, then perhaps you would be better off placing more emphasis on mutual funds. Q. My father is 56, in good health, but limited in savings and possible retirement income. yVouid you advise a small mutual fund investment to supplement his income? A. A small, regular investment in a good mutual fund should be a good hedge against inflation for your father when he is faced with retirement. Be careful, however, that he does not get into one of the so-called '{ front load" funds where his money for the first year or two will go largely to pay the salesman's commission rather than being invested productively for him. Your broker can point out funds available on a monthly basis and the relative performance of the various funds. Your father also might pick put three good companies—such as a good utility, a major oil company and a major industrial qompany--and buy shares in them on the Monthly Investment Plan. Again, your broker can help Mm choose. Have you a question about investing? Mr. O'Hara, Editor of the monthly magerine, "Better Investing", and one of the nation's recognized authorities, will be glad to answer it. Write to T. |.
