Saido Berahino’s recent rehabilitation has been described as a minor miracle… not quite. His transition towards something like his old self, hopefully his real self, has been made possible by a number of factors. Gary Rowett has clearly made a better one-to-one connection than any of Berahino’s previous three managers at West Brom and Stoke. And working one-to-one with Kevin Phillips has also done no harm in re-building his general confidence. That in turn has encouraged Berahino to press on with his fitness work and there’s little doubt he is now in the best condition we at Stoke City have ever seen him. Converting him to a slightly deeper role rather than being fielded as the team’s prime goalscorer has evidently lightened the burden of that infamous goalscoring drought and almost re-invented his contribution to the cause. We must also remember that Berahino has been operating against Championship opposition this season, including Huddersfield the other … [Read more...] about Why outcast is now doing the business for Stoke City ahead of West Brom return

But in this low-interest-rate world, it’s become harder for retirees to support their standard of living in retirement with the investing-for-income-preserve-principal approach. That’s why investment advisers are increasingly suggesting that retirees now use the total-return approach. That’s the practice of generating income from dividends and interest income, and dipping into principal. With this approach, retirees would sell their assets (stocks, bonds and cash) to meet their income needs. And by doing so, retirees are able to use all the tools in the toolbox to generate income, not just dividends and interest. First, let's look at the traditional investing-for-income investment strategy: Advantages of investing for income: When investing … [Read more...] about Total return: Does your investment strategy in retirement need rethinking?
