If you have the choice between making a major purchase on a credit card or a personal loan, your first choice should be neither.

Your first choice – if you will not be able to pay back the purchase by the end of the month – should be cash. If you do not have the cash, then you should consider skipping the purchase until you have saved enough money.

Now, that may be easier said than done.

There may be important life milestones, medical necessities and other purchases that necessitate financing, given your personal financial circumstances and financial life goals.

While credit cards have many benefits and offer all types of rewards (cash back, travel and more), they are not always the best option – particularly for longer-term financing needs.

For these major purchases and life milestones – if sufficient cash is not readily available – a personal loan may be a less expensive option.

    With a dividend payout ratio of 44% and dividend yield of 2%, we consider Accenture our favorite income oriented security, recognizing valuation is near peak multiples.
