I have $63,000 invested as follows: $17,000 in a mutual fund; $6,000 in a financial firm paying $315 a year and $40,000 in savingt-and-loan deposi'i?;/ paying about 5 V» per cent. In addition, I receive $99.60 a month in social security. In all, my income is about $300 a month. I am a widow, 66 and have no children or relatives. It seems that I should have a higher monthly income without taking chances. Can you suggest how? A. From the information you provide, I calculate that you should have about $300 a month coming in, exclusive of any payments from your mutual fund. The fund in question offers a monthly withdrawal plan and, judging from the: company's past record and the amount of your investment, you should bs aible to arrange for monthly payments of $100 to $125. Assuming the fund's earnings conn tinue as they have in the past, you should ba able to draw this amount each month without any long-term impairment of your capital, thus giving yourself more than $400 a month income from all sources. • ••• ; ' * Q. I have $16,000 in savings and loan companies paying 4Va per cent compounded quarterly. Could I invest this .in some mutual funds or in some shares of General Motors or A. T. & T. and get better returns with reasonable safety? A. At the time I am answering your letter, you could buy General Motors, at about $73 a sihai'e and American Telephone & Telegraph at $50. The regular dividend, without extras, on General Motors is $3.40 a share. Thic would give you a return of about 4.6 per cent on your man ey. The ragular dividend on. A. T. & T, is $2.20 a share. At the cur- reiit price of $50, this would give you a return of 4.4 per cent. From the past record of these companies it would seem that you could reasonably count on receiving these dividends each year. Actually, last year, GM paid $5.25 a share, including extras; in the last 10 years the dividend has grown from $2 to $5.25 per share. : In the case of A. T. & T.. the dividend in the last 10 years has grown from $1.50 to $2.20 per share. Assuming these companr ies continue to perform as they have in the past, your opportunity for a growing income ,,plus girowing value of your investment in either of them wpuld seem a reasonable possibility. There are almost certain tq, be times, however, when the price that .either of these stocks iwill sell at, will drop sharply; if you were forced to sell during such a period, you might incur a loss. Q. We rent the farm on which we now live. We have $7,000 in a savings account. Would we be wise to invest our money in another farm, or can you suggest another investment that would be better for us? Our farm machinery is clear of debt. A. Since farming is out of my line, I'm afraid my advice would net be worth much to you. 1 suggest that you talk with bankers and top grade farm real estate men in your area and get the advantage of their thinking. You and I are both aware, of course, that buying a farm large enough to provide a good income is an expensive proposition, and your $7,000 wouldn't go far in the purchase of an adequate one. If, however, you have had reasonable success in operating your rented farm, and if your age and health indicates you have a numbsr of years ahead of you to wwk the farmj, then certainly owning your own farm would bs advantageous. Certain*- ly with the world's, growing need for food, tha future? in farming; seems excellent. i Tva • WV lo to sedation at Algdiia.
