A&VANCt mONOAY, DuC. 5, '* '" 0. I «m tending a copy'of * magatint article. Tho author cttot Incom* stocks that havr out-performed growth, stock* ''and his conclusion, as you will see, is that one should ignore growth stocks in favor of, income. Since you emphasixo f growth-stock purchases to •strongly, I wonder .what you have to say to this. A. The author includes in his list of "income stocks" a good many securities I would regard as growth stocks. To be sure, brokers, investment counselors and'all sorts of "authorities"'oh stocks seldom agree as to jre- icisely where to draw the line. One man's list of growth stocks inevitably includes some securities that another would consider income stocks and vice versa. .• ' ' . "" i t ; I notice also that he has taken ,as his base 1958, a year" Vvhen the market price of income stocks was abnormally low: they have risen ' dramatically sirtte then. However, let's take the most recent 10-year period. Using Jan. 1, 1956, as our/ base; let's consider the performance of growth versus income stocks as reflected by the growth-stock and income-stock funds of two different mutual funds. ; i .If you had put $10,000 m ( ^ie GROWTH common stock fund ;0f Investment. Company "A" oh Jan. 1, 1956, it would have been worth $30,334 by Jan, 1, 1966. ; During that same period "$10,000 invested in the INCOME stock fund of Investment Company "A" would have increased to $19,661. ...-•-'; Your original $10,000 invested in the Growth Fund of Investment Company "B" would have grown to $27,306. $10,000 invested in the Income Stock fund of Investment Company "B" would have increased to ;brily $18,956. It is a simple fact of investing life that growth stocks over a period of time tend to increase their dividends faster and eventually actually pay higher income than a group/of income stocks starting from the same period. I still believe that genuine growth stocks are a better buy in the long run. Q., Wo Invtittd $15,000 lour years ago with a mutual fund. Last February it was worth $18,700. Now It Is worth $15,547, When he Sold it to us, the salesman assured us it 'would doubte in, five years and in ,10 years would be worth $45,000. When ('mentioned this to him, ho acted as if he didn't remember saying it. .Should we with' draw from this fund, pay off debts .of about $6,500, and put the rest in'savings at 4Va per . A.' Vour salesman's memory is probably no more faulty than that of a great many other salesmen. Salesmen are naturally an enthusiastic group. I wonder If you checked to see if the fund actually doubled Jti the five years before you bought • '. t 4 , • I might point* out that you paid 8% in commissions to get into ,this fund, so the original investment you had working for you was $13,000 rather than $15,000. At $18,700 you had'a 50% appreciation, at $15,547 you arc still somewhat ahead of the game • and in the meantime you have been receiving an income in the form of dividends. The market doesn't always stay like it is now and the odds are on the next rebound it may make a more honest man out of your salesman. Interested in starting an investment; club?
