Equity-income funds may be the best investing strategy

Equity-income funds may be the best investing strategy
BY WARREN BOROSON
BOROSON ON MONEY

There are all sorts of sensible ways to invest in the stock market.

A fellow I know has all of his money in Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett’s firm. Another acquaintance has all of his money in one Mutual Series fund – the Mutual Series funds, which buy deep-value stocks, being inveterate winners.

Having a balanced fund as the core of your portfolio also makes sense. Vanguard Balanced Index, Dodge & Cox Balanced, or T. Rowe Price Balanced are good choices. I own shares of the Dodge & Cox fund, which has done the best of the three over 10 years.

Then there are lifecycle funds and target retirement funds, those blessed investments that give you a nicely diversified portfolio in just one fund. The target retirement funds deliver the extra benefit of getting progressively more conservative – investing more in bonds rather than stocks – as you approach retirement.
