Phillip Morris (PM) Stock Purchase – The Best Performer Over The Past 100 Years

It’s a well known secret that one of the single best investments you could have made over the past fifty or sixty years was to buy and hold Philip Morris stock (LINK) . Had you invested $1,000 in the late 1960s, and continually reinvested the dividends along the way, then your holding would be worth roughly $7,000,000 + today. The sheer scope of those returns – compounding at a rate of about 20% a year – is unmatched by any other stock in the S&P 500.

Should I Hedge Currencies In A Portfolio?

One question I have been receiving regularly is whether investors should hedge currencies in their portfolio. This question has become increasingly important since Brexit as the value of the Pound has seemed to gyrate heavily over the past two years. The simple answer as to whether I hedge currencies is No. If I were to hedge currencies in my portfolio, a question I would ask myself is how would I do so? Should I base it on the currency of the country in which the companies are listed? This obviously would not work. There may be no connection between the country in which a company is listed and its area […]
